After the engagement, one of the first details couples need to nail down is the wedding venue. We asked the Sheerar Museum a few questions to help you decide
Tell us a little about the museum.

We love local here at Stillwater Wedding Central! So it was our pleasure to catch up with one of our favorite local makeup artists, Danna Rodman. Check out her interview below:
What inspired you to become a makeup artist?
I have just always loved makeup and trying new things. I also have so much fun helping ladies feel extra special and confident!
Where do you get your inspiration from?
YouTube! I love YouTube for new ideas and products. There are so many talented women with awesome channels.
What is the most important beauty advice you can give brides?
Drink lots of water, eat healthy, exercise, and try to cut out as much processed food as possible. Putting good things in to your body will give you a clear and glowing complexion. I also recommend exfoliating your face 2-3 times a week and moisturizing morning and night (even oily girls).
What is your favorite beauty/makeup product?
Mascara would have to be my favorite product. It opens your eyes and brightens your entire face.
What do you love most about makeup?
I love the creativity of makeup! There are always so many fun possibilities.

It’s time to share an interview with another local vendor. This time we’ll here from the owners of Smallcakes: A Cupcakery in Stillwater.
Tell us a little about your bakery. How did you get started?
Smallcakes has been around since 2008 and originated in Overland Park, KS. Our CEO is Jeff Martin and he was featured on Cupcakes Wars on the Food Network. Our Smallcakes location has been here in Stillwater since July 2014.
The current owners, Nicholas Keen and Kaylie Wilson, purchased the Stillwater franchise in August of 2015.
What is your favorite part about making treats for special occasions?
We love making people’s days with cupcakes. Our slogan is “Maybe a Cupcake Will Help?” We strive to serve the highest quality of cupcakes for anything from weddings and birthday parties to a small treat after a meal.
What is your most popular cupcake flavor?
We serve 12 daily flavors and rotate through over 200 specials at our store. We typically feature between 3 and 6 specials a day. I would say our most popular special would be our wedding cake cupcakes. We have them every Saturday and our customers always hurry in to get them before they are gone.
Who could resist wedding cake? No wonder it’s such a popular flavor! As a bonus, we asked the owner’s what their personal favorites were. They said it was a hard question, but Kaylie favors the Rainbow Sherbet cupcake while Nick prefers the Chubby Honey.
If you’d like to try one of their delicious cupcakes, head to: 2210 North Perkins Road

We love local businesses! We’re pleased to release the first of a new blog series featuring local wedding-related vendors. We asked the owner of Whisper Intimate Apparel, Melissa Wiles, a few questions. Here’s how it went:
Tell us a little about you- what inspired you to open Whisper Intimate Apparel?
I opened Whisper with the belief that every woman deserves to feel beautiful. Society says we’re supposed to fit a certain mold before we’re considered sexy or pretty; at Whisper, our motto is “Beauty is not made here; it’s rediscovered.” I also believe a properly fitting bra can change your life. We carry band sizes 28-54 and A-O cup, so no matter what size you are, we can help!
What sort of bridal accessories do you offer?
We offer a wide array of lingerie, garter belts, bridal garters, bridal panties, satin robes, and several items with “The Mrs.” or “The Bride” on them. We also offer the #1 Strapless Bra in the country and great shapewear options for your special day!
What can brides expect when they come in for a fitting?
Allow 10-15 minutes for your fitting if you’ve never been professionally fitted. We’ll have you take your shirt off but leave your bra on. After gathering a couple of measurements, one of our fit experts will grab a fit bra to determine your size. Unlike most stores, we will check each bra for the best fit as you may be one size in one bra and a completely different size in another style. We make the process as quick and easy as possible, and once sized, we keep your info on file so you don’t have to be resized every time you visit!
Check out what Whisper has to offer at http://www.whisperintimates.com or http://www.facebook.com/whisperintimates. For a fitting visit their storefront at 9th and Main in Downtown Stillwater.
