What’s your Scent?

Before my wedding, I was in desperate need to find a scent that I loved, one that I had never used before, and one that none of my friends or family used. Why, you ask. Well, because I absolutely adore a good perfume and because I wanted something that would bring back good memories of my wedding day. Yes, it’s so very true that something as simple as a scent can trigger memories. Every time I walk into my closet and open up my perfume cabinet, I get a little wiff of Miss Dior Cheri and it takes me right back to one of the best days of my life.

What scent did you wear on your wedding day? What sents bring back good memories for you? I would love to hear some fun stories about smells (ok, dont tell me the gross ones!)

At the beginning of the year, my husband and I were both in the wedding of some very good friends of ours. The bride and groom are both a very fun loving couple who decided to add a little flair to their rehearsal by giving the guys tuxedo shirts to wear. It was such a fun and clever idea. The guys just loved it and the girls had a ball with their “dressed up men.” At one point I even caught the guys “fixing” each others ties. It was too funny!! I found some fun shirts that were simular by Choice Shirts. If you like the idea and do the same at an event, shoot us a picture and we will feature it on our page!

Oh the joys of myspace and the neat vendors you find!! I just love how creative Mia Von Mink’s Garters are, so I had to share!! Aren’t they so sassy!! I wish I would have thought of something fun like this at my own wedding!! I definitely would have had a race car garter made for my husband!! He would have LOVED it!! (can I flash back and redo the wedding!?! PLEASE!! 🙂 )


Welcome to Mia Von Mink’s Garters. I make all kinds of garters for all kinds of beautiful girls for special occasions, costumes and pinup fun. Need a custom one, yes I do that too. Check out my signiture Wish Pearl Garters, these are especially popular with brides. Wish Pearl Garters all come with Wish Pearls. A real canned pearl oyster!! Open the oyster before a special day and make a wish on it. Then place it inside the charm attached to the garter to keep your wish close. Canned pearl oysters come in adorable handmade box with a vintage look. Boxes can be personalized. You can ask to have a Wish Pearl added to any of my other garters too. I also make a number of Specialy Garters that are “one of a kind” garters made with vintage trim, antique lace, and or beading. Remember you can always have one custom done to match a costume or outfit. I’m working on a new line of rockabilly pinup garters so keep a look out.

Serving our customers and giving back to the community is at the top of our list and we value that we are truly fortunate to be surrounded with the gift of love, life and creativity.

In order to make this world a better place and help us remember how truly blessed we are, the Event Essentials has created a team called “BRIDES MAKING STRIDES“.

By giving to the American Cancer Society, you’ll be taking an active role to increase the number of lives saved from cancer and the number of people who remain cancer free for life.

From all of us at the Event Essentials, we firmly believe that friends and family are the Main Essential for any event and hope this gift will assist to those in need. Please check out our website if you are interested in participating or donating.

Bosom Buttons

Say Goodbye to Wardrobe Malfunctions!

Bosom Button™ is a functional accessory designed to minimize cleavage on your favorite tops!

The Bosom Button™ was created by a woman who experienced the same wardrobe problem as many of you. One morning while trying to properly “hide” a safety pin in order to keep a wrap dress closed a lightbulb went off in her head! Why not create a pin that is not meant to be hidden, is easy to use and adds style to your clothes?

….. And so Bosom Button was born!

Our Bosom Buttons™ are handmade with care. We use real Swarovski crystals or other quality stones and gems so you get maximum sparkle and style.

To wear simply pierce through clothing and fasten clasp.
