Kayela + Spencer | July 18, 2009

It is always so fun to see our brides published in various places, and none is so exciting as the very chic Southern Weddings Blog - from the editors of Southern Weddings Magazine....

While we may be just a touch biased, we most certainly believe they chose an amazing couple in Kayela and Spencer....they were married in Kentucky on a beautiful July day and had their entire event documented by the fabulous Michael Howard....

The images most definitely speak for themselves, but Kayela and her sweet mother left no detail undone......from the timeless Monique Lhuillier Kayela selected to the vintage-inspired PARIS pieces (brooch! hair ornament!), her wedding day style was classic and subtle....and simply gorgeous...

Southern Weddings did a fantastic blog on this sweet should check it out here!

Best to you, Kayela and Spencer (and sweet mama Kaye...we miss you!!)....(and Steph says Go Big Blue! ;) )!!!!

Umbrellas Fun-brellas!

Seems like our posts lately have been all business - what with Fashion Show/Open House...trunk gowns (and a new collection!) in store ..... all this excitement!!!

But not to worry, there's still time for play.....we were perusing some of our favorite wedding blogs and came across this too cute photo of a real couple who had a little good luck rain down on them on their wedding day ;)

[photo via One Fine Day in Kentucky]

And it got us thinking...all you spring brides out there - it might just be a great idea to have a cute little umbrella on hand, just - in - case......And even if it doesn't rain, there is something oh-so romantic about a bride and groom and an umbrella :)

Found this little bit of inspiration via Martha Stewart Weddings (what else?) who credits Brollies Galore....They even have a section especially for weddings :) :) Enjoy!!!

Catherine + Chase | June 6, 2009

Excuse the excessive gushing that is to follow.... Those out there lucky enough to count Catherine among your friends, you know how this is about to go know how we feel and you know why we feel it....

For the rest of you - let us us educate you. Let's just say, if there was contest to nominate the most classic bride of all time, Catherine would be our very first nomination. Catherine is graceful - sweet - timeless - generous - easy - gorgeous - amazing. She had such a clear vision of how she wanted to look and she trusted her instinct for every decision...well, her instinct and her sweet, sweet mother who was equally as wonderful to work with....Mom was so stylish and relevant that it's not hard to figure out where Catherine gets her fashion sense and sensibility. ;)

A fun detail about Catherine we loved -- she chose gorgeous custom-made PARIS earrings for herself and then had coordinating, smaller earrings made for her bridesmaids....a fabulous gift and precious detail! Love the genius of simplicity that Catherine infused at every turn....

Can you tell, we're still grieving that her wedding is over? Oh, Catherine - thanks a million for being so gracious and kind to us. It was such a pleasure to be a part - you are welcome to visit any time you like!!! :) :) :)

Brooch + Earrings: PARIS

PLATINUM: New Collection at The Bride Room!!!

Big news today at The Bride Room....some news we've waited to share until we had some evidence in the store :) :) :)....and today is finally the day!!!

We are so glad to welcome the PLATINUM by Priscilla of Boston collection to our store! We are humbled and honored that they have invited us to represent these fabulous gowns!  PLATINUM is part of the Melissa Sweet-Priscilla of Boston-Vineyard Collection family, so we know we're getting the same quality design, fabric, production, and service that we've come to know and love.

Our first PLATINUM gown to join the family is PL266 -- stunning in person, we promise!!! The faille fabric is unique and has a heavy hand that photographs so beautifully -- you will love it!

PLATINUM will, of course, be well represented at the Open House and Fashion Show on Thursday, September 17th (go ahead....mark your calendar/punch it into your iPhone....) and you will not want to miss these dresses....perfect for the fashion forward girl with a clear vision of her day and the confidence to carry an incredibly detailed and constructed dress....Can't wait for you to see!!!

Do Your Girlfriends a Favor (Indeed!)

We pretty much thought the Amsale Bridesmaids campaign was genius....check it out here....but as you know, an ad campaign is nothing without the product to back it up.....

No worries, ladies! Amsale has done it again, delivering the chic-est, most flattering and wearable crinkle chiffon dresses you have ever seen....this new collection arrived at The Bride Room today and we are m-a-d-l-y in love. Love. Love. Looooove. Can't get enough. (You know, it's not surprising that Amsale herself wears her own gowns....just LOOK at them!!!!)

As if the styles themselves aren't cute enough, they've added a few colors to the palette- most notably a perfect-for-fall Spice and not-your-ususal-pink Rhubarb.....the Eggplant, Navy, and Pacific colors couldn't be more spot-on for jewel toned receptions and warm winter weddings.....Trust us, you are going to LOVE these dresses !!! Come see!!

Do tell....what's your favorite?!?!?
