A classic creation done by...me!

A classic shoe creation designed by yours truly!

Custom wedding shoes that won’t break the bank? I just discovered that Nina Shoes has a new option on their website that lets you design your own shoes. I created a fab pair for $199.  You pick the style, heel height, and color. There are 16 shades to choose from, and you can choose different colors for the upper, heel, and bow (though I’m not sure I would recommend a three-tone shoe!). A great idea for your shoes, and your bridesmaids’. Unleash your inner Louboutin! –Christina, Un-Veiled

 

Dixie Dude Ranch

Dixie Dude Ranch

Las Vegas, New York, and Miami are the usual go-to places for bachelorettes—but have you ever considered a dude ranch?  I hadn’t, until my sister-in-law told me she was off to the Dixie Dude Ranch in Bandera, Texas, for a girls’ weekend.  I turned up my nose and thought sarcastically, “right–sounds like a blast”.  Turns out I was totally wrong.  My SIL returned with stories of female bonding, drinking, and cute cowboys.  Plus, at about $130 a night (including meals, horseback riding, and other activities), it’s a bargain.  Now if only I could convince my own city slicker friends…  –Christina, Wedding Spy
