Dress Framing

Wedding dresses are so beautiful and it would be such a shame to see it get damaged and dirty over time, that’s why more and more brides are getting their dress framed. Not only does it keep the dress safe, but it also allows you to put your gorgeous dress on display as a piece of art.

Hang your dress in your living room for all to see, or in your bedroom to keep it just for you. The framing process will ensure that your dress will look as beautiful as it did the day you first tried it on, for years to come.

Professional Proposals

There are so many beautiful proposal stories, but some people are looking for outside help to ensure their proposal is perfect. From creating an enchanted, romantic background to choreographing huge flash mobs in busy cities, nothing is too much for the professional proposal artists.

This growing trend has probably come about due to the unrealistic expectations about proposals that films have given us, but now it’s actually possible to put on your own flash mob if you really want to. However, even the simplest of proposals mean the world when it comes from the right person.
