Love is Sweet!

For many couples, positive guest experience ranks high on the list of importance when planning a wedding. They want their wedding to be the one people remember and talk about for years to come. With the recent popularity of wedding extras such as photobooths, and song request RSVPs, couples now, more than ever, are looking out for ways to help their guests have a great time at their wedding.

Therefore, what better way to your guests’ hearts than through their stomach via a serve-your-self, sweet tooth buffet!


The obvious first option is to organize candy in interesting jars and dishes coordinating with your wedding colors and theme. There are entire online stores devoted to every shade of the rainbow in every candy imaginable. Personalize the experience by including the bride and groom’s favorite candy choice, or personalize the gift bags with a custom stamp of your wedding monogram.

For those couples whose sweet tooth is less demanding, there is the option of a popcorn. Having a range of popcorn from buttery theater to caramel crunch to sweet kettle corn will keep all of your guests coming back for more. Add some color themed M&M’s on the table to bring your theme into the mix (pun intended!).

There is nothing that says love more than homemade cookies and ice cold milk! For a great, easy, and budget friendly buffet, organize a baking party with your family and wedding party a few days/weeks before your wedding. It will be a fun way to bring everyone together and will allow all of your family and friends’ baking skills and favorites to be front and center at your reception.

Another, possibly more health conscious option, is the trail mix bar. Raisins, peanuts, marshmallows, chocolate chips, and yogurt bites are will please even the youngest of guests with its salty sweet goodness. Bringing in the spicy peanuts and Cajun flavored items is another great way to expand your buffet to suit all ages.

We at Heartstrings love a yummy buffet, and would love to help organize yours! Come visit us to see our great selection of candy buffet display items to rent. No matter which way you go, a salty or sweet buffet will keep your guests fueled up and ready to dance the night away.

Thinking About Renting Chair Covers?

September is the best time to decide on renting chair covers, especially from Heartstrings Bridal! This month we have our annual chair cover sale going on. Rental for the cover AND sash is only $1.50 each! Rent through us and you’ll end up saving hundreds compared to other rental companies, or venues. Many places will charge $7+ per chair. Why pay more for the same product?

Most of our clients are happy to find friends or family to help them set up before the wedding. With 6 or 7 people, set up can be done in under an hour. Last summer, I helped one of my friends set up for her wedding. I had the help of the help of the seven groomsmen. Everything turned out stunning and it took us only about 45 minutes!

The wedding was at the Greysalon Ballroom in Duluth. The chairs were already set up for the ceremony, so we were able to go row by row with ease. After the ceremony, the venue moved all the chairs for us into the dinner set up.

Chair covers can completely transform the look of any venue. Hide those ugly chairs and make the space elegant! We have over 20 sash colors in stock to choose from. If we do not have the color you are looking for, we can custom order (if time allows) a new color in for you, for only $1 extra per chair!

Give us a call or stop in to see the selection, or to grab one of our free try-on bags to bring to your venue and find the perfect fit for the chair.


Gown of the Month – April – LARK by Maggie Sottero

We are bringing back our gown of the month with the “Lark” by Maggie Sottero! From the “Gatsby” inspiration, the Lark brings the best elements out. The gown features floral and lace appliques on tulle over a Valentina Satin slip. An optional grosgrain ribbon belt encrusted with Swarovski crystals is a great addition to this elegant gown.


This gown comes in ivory and ivory over light gold. Our favorite new color trend this spring  is the golds and champagnes. We love how the color of a gown can make a dress seem more whimsical and add a touch of a vintage element. The Lark would be perfect for a chapel wedding, but being as it is so light, it would also work nicely for a destination wedding.

Adding a french veil to this dress  instantly transforms the look into something more vintage. If a little dramatic flair is more your style, try adding a simple cathedral veil instead. It will allow the beauty of the dress to still shine through, but will finish the look nicely.

Lark 2


The Lark is a great gown to accessorize with gold and pink jewelry. Doing so can help create that “Gatsby” theme for your wedding. Try finding a larger earring with some color, like the “Alecia” earring from David Tutera’s Embellish collection. We also love using bold bracelets or necklaces to help add to the look. Accessorizing can completely change your look to make it more modern, vintage, whimsical, or even make your look more romantic.

Give us a call to schedule a time to come in to try on this new, gorgeous gown!
