5 Star Honeymoon on a Dime, St. George

For our Honeymoon series, we are highlighting the finer side of Utah, and why keeping your Honeymoon local is not only an affordable option, but an adventurous one. Now that you are a newly married couple, it is time to create memories and traditions of your own. If you grew up in the state, as I did, you have more than likely stepped foot into the lovely city of St. George. A mere four hour road trip from Salt Lake City, you will find yourself in a different world. With gorgeous views of red rock mountains, palm trees, Spanish inspired architecture, and the blazing sun; your stresses from home will literally melt away.
Spend your week in St. George at the Inn at Entrada. This small luxury resort is located in a gated golf community, offering panoramic views of Snow Canyon and the surrounding red rock mountains. 

Your charming one bedroom casita offers a cozy living area with romantic fireplace, contemporary artwork, king size bed, whirlpool tub, complementary Aveda Spa products, private garage, a private patio and a kitchenette; breakfast in bed anyone? 

Be sure to book Entrada's Tuacahn Package. Combining first class accommodations and broadway entertainment from Tuacahn's stunning outdoor amplitheater.
Before the show, spend a few hours winding down. Book a pampering couples massage at Entrada's exclusive spa.
What better way to connect as a couple then trying something new. If you have never golfed before, have fun learning together on Entrada's private golf course. If you are a city couple, go for a hike in the redrocks. Make sure to wear plenty of sunscreen, stay on trails, and bring extra water. To top off this adventurous activity, pack a light picnic.

Spending your Honeymoon in St. George does not have to lack in romantic atmosphere. Reserve a dinner at Scaldoni's. Featuring the deluctable creations of Chef Johnny Devivo, Scaldoni's offers more than a delicious meal; each plate is served as a piece of art.

A few days in St. George, you may be feeling a tad warm. A great way to cool off is to visit one of the many great lakes in the surrounding areas. Each lake offers a unique experience. Sand Hollow provides you with sandy beaches that are perfect for sunbathing and gorgeous coves allow for a more private experience. Laying in the sand and listening to the light crashing of waves, you will feel like you have just been transported to an exotic beach. If you want to amp up your activity level at the lake, check out this fun company for boat and jet ski rentals.

  Want to grab something quick to eat, stop by Sand Hollow's state of the art clubhouse.
After a few days spent exploring the great outdoors, a fun day of shopping and site seeing may be in order.  For a fun peek into the local side of St. George, visit Ancestor Square. You will find locally owned shops, restaurants, and art galleries.
Not every day spent on your Honeymoon has to be filled with candle light and romantic music. Spend a day just being silly together. Who says now that you are a married couple you can't have fun racing go carts, playing arcade games, and attacking each other on the bumper boats at Fiesta Fun?

After spending such a fun filled weekend together, I am sure you never want your Honeymoon to end. On your drive back home, take the long way! Utah is full of beautiful canyons and the gorgeous Zion Canyon is on the way. Just slowing your pace and taking in the magnificent sites will leave you feeling overwhelmed with how beautiful your life is and how lucky you are to get to spend it with the one you love.

*Rates may vary on season, but this 5 Star Honeymoon can be enjoyed for just under $2,500.00.

Abigail by Intuzuri

In honor of our upcoming Intuzuri Trunk Show, we are proud to feature this stunning gown. Abigail is for the bride that wants to make a fashion forward statement on her wedding day. This gorgeously ruched gown is not only extremely flattering, but the bold textured skirt is fun, while remaining elegant. 
We love the flattering drop waist silhouette, the natural waist highlighted with intricately beaded flowers, and the textured a-line skirt hits at just the right spot; creating drama without creating bulk.
For the bride who wants to modify this gown to include a sleeve, she has found a great dress to do so. The ruched bodice allows for the sleeve to blend seamlessly.
To try this gown on, schedule your appointment for our upcoming Intuzuri Trunk Show, May 4th-May 11th. If you schedule and purchase your gown on opening day, you will receive 20% off your gown!

Will You Be My Bridesmaid?

Now that he has popped the question, it is time for you to start asking a few questions of your own. First, who do you want to stand beside you on your special day? This can become tricky, as I am sure you have dozens of friends that would be honored to be part of such a beautiful day in your life. You also don't want to hurt anyone's feelings. My suggestion is to extend the invitation toward those who have been a positive and enduring influence in your life. Ask those who are as close as family and that show genuine and sincere excitement for your engagement. Once you have narrowed down the list, you have to ask yourself how you want to ask the lucky girls. This can be done simply by inviting them out to a girl's day lunch date. 
If you want to make them feel really special, here are a few fun ideas:

A fun little memento box full of information about the big day, fun pictures of you and your friend, old letters you have written, or any other sweet memory you have had together.

 Choose a fun invitation to pop the question. Cleverly designed stationary sets the tone for your wedding.

Another fun idea is to get your bridesmaids the nail polish you would like them to wear on your wedding day.

I love the idea of gifting your bridesmaids matching jewelry to wear on your special day. Make it even more personal by including their first initial. These bracelets from Cusp by Neiman Marcus are darling.

 Being a little funny and cheesy never hurt when hanging out with your girlfriends. Invite them over for movie night and put on this fun movie after breaking the big news.

We would love to hear how you popped the big question to your bridesmaids! Please leave a comment or share a photo.

I know you never want your wedding day to end! Unfortunately, there are only 24 hours in a day and the time will come for your groom to whisk you away. Make an exciting departure by slipping into a fun little "Getaway Gown" to surprise your groom and your guests.

 The "Getaway Gown" offers you the opportunity to play with fun bridal trends without sacrificing your traditional dream wedding. Run off with your new husband in a fun pop of color. Soft bridal blues, pretty pinks or edgy, daring reds.

We are head over heels in love with McKenzie's lovely bohemian inspired gown. Starting with a simple silk chiffon gown designed by Justin Alexander, McKenzie took this dress to the next level. Adding unique, vintage lace and removing the crinoline from the skirt; this dress is romantic and light. The addition of a bohemian bridal head wrap and linked ring bracelet completes this unique and feminine look.  
Brace yourself for the stunning photography provided by Kirstin Roper.
 We love the soft pink, ivory, and touch of purple in her bouquet.

Thank you McKenzie for sharing this special time in your life with us.  You looked absolutely amazing!
