Oscar Fever!

So almost a week later and we are still swooning over Hugh Jackman and his endearing-if-not-embarrassing musical numbers last Sunday night at the Academy Awards.....

In true The Bride Room fashion, we were so anxious to see who wore what on the ever-delicious red carpet......The stars did not disappoint and much to our delight, we saw a few lovely Hollywood ladies in our very own and very dear Monique Lhuillier!

Let's be clear....we would have loved for Sean Penn to maybe even acknowledge his wife in his acceptance speech .... but seriously, we forgot all about it when we saw how fabulous she was looking ;)

And Anne Hathaway had the distinct pleasure of joining Mr. Jackman on stage for the opening number (PS: who knew she could sing!?!?!)....and we knew it was a Lhuillier the moment she hopped on stage....

So fun, right?!?! These gorgeous gowns make us very excited for what we will see at market in FIVE WEEKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) :)

So excited to share with you three new pieces from the Amsale Bridesmaids collection.....We fell in love at Market last fall, and quickly scooped up these pieces with fabulous wearability and ruffle details....

Then came this too cute ad campaign and we knew we were done! Love them all!!

These three styles landed in store last week, and we are expecting more....stay tuned!!!

(note: the one-shouldered ruffle dress is in store in the short version, not long as pictured cute!!)

Happy NY Fashion Week! Er...we mean President's Day!

Leave it to us to take a national federal holiday and geek out over the way it ties into...well, what really matters of course....Wedding Day Fashion :) :) :)

Our very own Priscilla of Boston had the pleasure of creating the timeless looks for the brides Nixon as well as Luci Johnson.....

[Fun facts.....Priscilla Kidder (THE Priscilla of Boston!) personally escorted Tricia Nixon's wedding dress to the White House, with an armed escort of secret service agents. A first class seat was purchased for the dress to ensure it's safe journey. The story of the gown and the Priscilla of BostonTM company was a featured cover story in Life magazine in 1971.]

See.....Priscilla's collections truly transcend time and remain classic...

Luci Johnson (1966):

Tricia Nixon (1971)

Julie Nixon (1968):

I think we can take the politics out of it altogether and agree that these brides were gorgeous!!!

Have a great President's Day!!!! :)

Kristin + Randy | Jan 17

Kristin and her family really got to be very near and dear to us over the months leading up to her wedding. It was such a pleasure helping Kristin create her wedding day look, and we're pretty sure there hasn't ever been a girl love her wedding dress as much as this bride!!!! It was so so so so so sweet getting to know her and see everything come together.....

One of our favorite memories was when Kristin came to order her veil....she knew she wanted the fabulous lace Toni Federici veil above, but since she had the long aisle at Scarritt Bennett, she wanted a custom length. Easy enough! So we pulled out our longest veil (the model for how long Kristin wanted her TF veil) and measured it, and it came in exactly at 117 inches.....unbelievable, since 1-17 was her wedding gives us chills thinking how perfect it was in that moment, and seeing how perfect it was in January......

The amazing Monique Lhuillier gown and PARIS brooch.....

Kristin's gorgeous winter wedding party.....looooove the rich red color!!! Gowns by Watters......

Paul Wharton was on hand for the photography. Clearly he did a great job -- I think this is one of our's so natural and honest.....looks like they are most comfortable and happiest just being together....isn't that the point??? .....Love it all!

Kristin and family -- our sincerest thanks for letting us be there for this amazing celebration.....please don't be a stranger!!! We miss you already!!!!
