Diva Tip!!!! Check out Rent the Runway!

As girls, we are always on the prowl for that PERFECT outfit for the next big thing we are going to attend. Nothing we already have in our closet will EVER do! Cocktail party? Date night? Girls night out? All require new duds. Promise! But, if you are anything like me, that "new" outfit was for "one night only," and sat hanging in the closet for the rest of time. On to the next shopping trip!

BUT, when you hear you have to buy a new dress to be a bridesmaid for your friend, you know you dread it just a little. Shelling out hundreds of dollars for a dress "you can wear again and again" that you may or may not like is tough. And let's face it, you are NEVER going to wear that teal full length dress again!

Here's the cool part.....We found the perfect solution for both our shopping divas AND our brides who want to provide their girls with the most FAB fashion, at a fraction of the cost! As the bride, you can even shop for a cute rehearsal dinner dress, or the perfect "Little White Dress" to slip into after dinner...

This is the END of buying outfits and accessories that never make it out the door...the END of spending gobs of money on things you just don't need! Fashion at your fingertips for either the "I do's" or the "OMG I can't waits!"....

Click here to see how to RENT THE RUNWAY!

We aren't talking just everyday garb here....We are talking Bagdley Mischka, Dolce and Gabbana, and even Vera Wang. This site is for the SERIOUS DIVA. HOT HOT HOT!!!!

Here's how it works...You simply register online, select your dress, accessories, or check out the wedding section..You can shop by size, designer, event type, color or rental fee. It's so easy!

This TOTALLY gets our CCPINK "Wink"....We LOVE!

Hugs, all the CCP girls!

The Pearl Collection UNVEILED!

We CCPINK gals had a GREAT time at our Mother-Daughter Tea at the Columbia Club this weekend. Thank you AJ for hosting such a great event!
To start off the day, we had a great chat from the owner, Tonya Shadoan, who instructed us on the roles of the wedding party. I was amazed at all the things I DIDN'T know!!! For instance, did you know that the groom's parents are responsible for paying for and arranging all transportation, out of town guest lodging, the rehearsal dinner, and even certain portions of the florist's bill?

Then we had a great chat given by Jill Sowder from Westwood Paper Company. She enlightened us with her expertise on invitation etiquette. So many little details to think about, she instructed us on how to address invites to people who are unmarried, "plus 1's", and those guests out of the country. For brides and grooms whose family may be from another country, it is super important to purchase that country's postage for the return cards.

Finally, (my favorite part :) ) we unveiled the Pearl Collection for The Columbia Club. Circle City Designers teamed up with the club to create a trio of centerpieces available exclusively at this venue. They were designed to meet any bride's budget or color scheme while being the perfect fit for the club's timeless elegance.

Big thank you to Dawn Fisher, from Galleria Studios, for taking such UH-Mazing pictures! And I can't wait to see the video footage from Bob Ridge at Indy Visual!

CCPINK Fashion Police!

CCPink Fashion Police

This time of year is all about big award shows, but what IS the big deal? Well for us, it is really ALL ABOUT THE GIRL and the fashion scene. The gown, the jewels, and of course, the SHOES! Stars dazzled the red carpet in pinks, reds, emerald green, and as always, black. Glitz and glam was definitely upheld with statement shoes and shimmering ensembles.

Pretty in Pink

Pink hit the carpet in large numbers! Natalie Portman in Viktor & Rolf, Scarlett Johanson , & Lea Michelle in Oscar de la Renta of GLEE looked fantastic! The softness of the pale blushes just POPPED against that red carpet!


Glamourous in Green

Emerald was the stand out color of the Globes! Mila stepped out in a one-shoulder Vera Wang dress, Catherine Zeta- Jones dawned a strapless green Monique Lhuillier dress with a full bottom, and Angie was extremely bold in staying away from her staple black dress. She was combining all of the trends in a deep green with sparkle and a plunging scoop back. It was bold and beautiful!!


Bring on the Sequins

Sparkle and glitz was it! Amber Riley of GLEE choose silver as her stand out color, Olivia Wilde was daring in a Marchesa two tone dazzler, and Anne Hathway took it one step further with an Armani long sleeve dress.


But we cannot forget about the shoes!!! Take a look at Olivia Wilde and her hot Christian Laboutins!! Even though most ladies wore full length gowns stars had to think about their looks from head to toe. Statement shoes were a hit! Lea Michelle even paired her salmon colored gown with silver PIGALILI pump sparklers. Megan Fox wore Brian Atwood stilettos as part of her fashion ensemble.


It is not too late for you to show us your best pair of pumps! We still have our CCPINK Shoe Contest going on. Submit a picture of your favorite pair of shoes to and you could win a day to come into our design studio, sip on some champagne, and PLAN YOUR WEDDING IN A DAY! After, we will treat you to a SHOE SHOPPING TRIP!

Keep on the lookout for the red carpet fashions at the Grammys & the Academy Awards!

You know we will!

Hugs, Tonya, Darcie, Tiffany and Randi at CCPINK!

Fall into Blue by Mindy Weiss

We are excited to feature some advice and ideas from Mindy Weiss! Enjoy!

Hi Friends…

Tali my future daughter -in-law came to me and said she wants her colors for the wedding to be Blue and Green she must of had some foresight into the fall colors for 2011…love these different blue shades! It is going to be easy for her mom and I to find a dress for sure!

New Fashion for Fall 2011 is already being debuted.
These collections will be arriving in stores early this summer.

I selected dresses from some of my favorite designers from classics like Chanel, Carolina Herrera and Oscar de la Renta to new designers such as Erdem and Jason Wu.

The short dresses will give great inspiration for Bridesmaids and bridal Party members…and the long gowns could offer ideas for the nontraditional Bride….

enjoy the sneak peak

Upcoming wedding trends for 2011!

WOW! What a great weekend at the Perfect Wedding Guide Bridal show. Thank you to all the GIRLS who came out to see us!!!! Don't forget to submit your cutest shoe pics for our BIG contest!!!! Email me at for your chance to win a our "Plan Your Wedding in a Day Package!" Mama needs some new shoes, so we'll round out the day with a little impromptu shoe shopping trip, ON US!

The first bridal show of the year has got us thinking about what fun things we will see pop up as trends for 2011. I wanted to share with you what we are seeing.

*Orange is THE IT COLOR. Last year was all about purple, but say hello to persimmon, coral, tangerine and mango!

*Ceremony and Reception at the same venue. STILL HOT.

*Last year gray was the new black...GOODBYE! Black is back! You will see more modern displays this years versus the traditional, elegant look. Black lacquer containers, black hanging crystals, and funky colored lighting will don every reception. The club feel trumps the ballroom.

Here's a great blog summarizing some other HOT trends for this year! Enjoy!

The Dog DAYS ARE OVER!!!!!!


We had a client a few years ago whose story I will never forget!

A pair of Manolo Blahnik’s for her wedding day (for $995.00) she did get!

She was SOOOO excited to see them on her feet!!!!

A new love in her heart for these shoes she would keep!

But then, alas, her other love, Killer, a sweet puppy wanted to see them!

He loved them too, but chose to EAT THEM!

Her wedding attire, nothing short of a disaster!

Tears of sadness swam down her face of alabaster.

But Mom to the rescue! A new pair she did nab!

A smooth walk down the aisle, LOOKING NOTHING SHORT OF FAB!

Enter our cutest shoe contest by emailing us a picture of your favorite pair, tell us why you love them, and you will be eligible to win a Circle City Planners and Designers, “PLAN YOUR WEDDING IN A DAY” package!

Resolutions and SHOES!

BRING IT ON 2011!!! This is the year your whole life is going to change! And, I’m sure we all laid out some resolutions on New Year’s Eve. (and most of us will toss those right out the window by February! :) I know I will! ) One thing that most everyone is wanting to implement for this year, is a budget. This is the time we start giving up our Venti Mochas and Cappachinos, letting go of that perfect pair of black pumps at the mall, and start cooking at home rather than hitting the local eatery with friends. As you plan your wedding, it’s important to look for ways to save there, too!

This weekend, we will be at the Perfect Wedding Guide Bridal Show ready to show you how Circle City Planners and Designers can help you have the wedding of your dreams AND stick to your budget. Our design experts will be on hand to answer your questions and INSPIRE you!

At the show we will be holding a VERY serious contest. For those ladies who already bought the perfect pair of pumps, those luscious leather boots, or those FABULOUS flats, LACE UP and come see us at the show!!! For the lovely ladies who don the cutest shoes, you will be entered into our FAB SHOE contest and the winner will be announced on Facebook next week. Details to come this week!!!!!

Be sure to add us as friends on Facebook so you don’t miss any details!

Adding fabulosity to your florals, Tiffany
