This Hotel Bel Air Baby Shower was complete with adorable stuffed animals, vanilla milkshakes and special notes to the new baby. Guests dined on an incredible brunch by Wolfgang Puck in a fireplace-lit room with soft blue and ivory tones.
“We’d always talked about renewing our vows after a decade of marriage. We alternate every year on who plans holidays like Valentine’s Day and our anniversary. It was my year to plan our anniversary, and it just so happened to be the tenth year, Tyson explains.
Tyson decided to do the ceremony at a private club in Santa Barbara overlooking the Pacific Ocean and enlisted celebrity wedding planner Sharon Sacks to help him pull it all off. The party ended up going strong until two in the morning. “We danced, took photos in the picture booth, and had cigars outside on the beach,” says Tyson. “I love Randy’s Donuts, so they were delivered late night to satisfy those with a sweet tooth.” -Vogue
i know tradition is that the bride throws her bouquet. but it is so special and i was hoping to preserve it. what can i do?

you’ll be happy to know that you can stick with tradition and keep your bouquet too! nearly all of my brides have face this dilemma and i have always given them the same advice. have two bouquets- one to toss and one to keep for yourself. ask your florist to put together a smaller bouquet with the same flowers, so that it looks identical to the bouquet you walk down the aisle with. this is the one that you’ll throw to all of the single ladies.
to keep the “twin” bouquet fresh during your ceremony you simply keep the stems in a small container of water. when your ceremony is finished, grab the bouquet you’re going to toss and replace it with your real bouquet. no one will know the difference as they scramble to catch the bouquet in hopes of becoming the next bride!
