From First Date Photography to Elegant Berry Boxes

— October 29, 2014 — Eco
The top October 2014 lifestyle ideas featured on the site this month include everything from bridal gowns to unusual photography series and outlandish food recipes.

While wedding season is coming to an end, designers are busy previewing their upcoming collections for 2015. Designers like La Sposa, Pronovias and Julien Macdonald are bringing back the opulence to wedding couture. Designer Alfred Angelo turned to Disney's Frozen for his inspiration for his Fairy Tale collection of wedding gowns.

French fry pizzas, lifelike insect desserts and decadent dessert beers are offering foodies plenty of unusual and curious dishes to try.

Tempting one's emotions in this collection are the photo shoots documenting abandoned dogs, young love and first dates.
