Happy Friday!

For this week's Friday Freebie Bridal Shoe Giveaway, we are giving men an equal opportunity to take part in the fun.  Just as brides want to have the perfect wedding shoes for her special day, we think that men should also look their best with black patent-leather tuxedo shoes by Special Occasions.  The size we are giving away this week is 9M.  These are brand new shoes that have never been worn in public (although they may have been test fitted by another customer).

This week's contest runs from today through next Thursday, 8/11 at midnight.  The winner will be picked by random drawing based on the entries received.  You can enter by leaving a comment on this blog or by sending a message to @WeddingShoes on Twitter.  Winner will be announced in next Friday's blog.

So far, we have still not given away last week's giveway of the Astor shoes by Benjamin Adam.  These are still available if you or someone you know would like a pair of fashion-forward stunning  shoes.  Be sure to leave a comment or send us a message on Twitter!  We would love to give these away to a lucky bride or prom queen.

What Color Roses to Send on Valentine's Day?

When you send flowers this Valentine's Day, send more than beautiful blossoms.  Send a message from your heart.  The rose is a perfect choice for expressing your deepest feelings.  The language of color has a long history of tradition.  Here are the most widely recognized meanings associated with each rose color:

  • RED roses are a symbol of love, the perfect way to say "I love you."
  • WHITE roses symbolize purity or any occasion celebrating a new beginning.
  • YELLOW roses embody everlasting friendship more than anything else--best friends, new friends, or old friends.
  • ORANGE roses symbolize enthusiasm and desire; a burning love unlike red or white roses which mean love and pure love, respectively.
  • PURPLE or LAVENDER roses are just right for love at first sight.  Purple has long been associated with passion, luxury, which makes this rose's color just right for expressing all the enchantment that only new love delivers.
  • PINK roses have the most diver meanings today.  Admiration, appreciation, joy, thanks; roses in any shade of pink say it all.
  • PEACH roses are sent to communicate sincerity and gratitude.  They're idea for business gifts or as gifts for Teacher's Day, for example.

Remember, you are not just sending flowers when you choose to send roses.  You are sending a message and the color rose you decide on will greatly impact that message.
