Haute Bride!

We are over the moon with our big announcement today!!
If you follow us on Twitter, maybe you've already seen....but we are the newest salon to partner with Haute Bride accessories of San Fransisco!!

The Haute Bride collection is for a fashion-forward, risk-taking bride...maybe she's wearing a beaded Platinum gown? Or a too-cute tea length Reverie number? Haute Bride is bold and has a big presence and can be worn again and again and again....In a word, fabulous! {Ok, we confess, we're already placing order for personal reasons!! Come see the cushion-cut crystal pendant and you'll know why!!}

Lindsie, head designer and entrepreneur extraordinaire, and Charlotte connected at market a few seasons back and it was a match made in bridal-boutique heaven :) :) :) :) {Stephanie here :::: let me tell you, if you want to be inspired by Women Who Do It All, spend a few minutes listening to Charlotte and Lindsie....fab businesses, children, friends, husbands...they're amazing!!!! But I digress....}

The product is great, the designer fantastic, and the customer service impeccable. We are proud to partner with another {woman-owned!! small business!!} collection who cares as much about the girl who wears the jewelry as the innovative pieces themselves. Three cheers for beauty and heart!!! Our fave combo!! :)

Haute Bride is both the jewelry collection and a very special boutique in San Fransisco...check them out here and follow along here....and come get your new jewels now!!!

Jennifer + Adam | December 12, 2009

It is truly a pleasure on this chilly winter day to introduce you to our sweet December bride Jennifer, who had a dreamy Christmas wedding just last month...

Jennifer knew very clearly from the beginning exactly what her vision for the day was....classic, clean lines and warm winter tones. Maybe we're biased, but we think she achieved just that and more with her timeless Vineyard gown and blackberry-toned maids gowns.

Jennifer was a dream to work with - accessible, warm, considerate, thankful....such a treat! She was SO excited to marry Adam and it was evident every step of the way....Jennifer, thanks for sharing your heart with us and letting us be a part of this day!! SO thankful for you and so glad that your day was all you dreamed of!!!

this weekend is busy! (and other thoughts!)

Officially, officially....happy 2010 from The Bride Room :)
We couldn't be more thankful for a fabulous 2009 or more excited about 2010. Hope your new year is off to a great start and you are staying warm!!!

We are already madly in love with so many dresses we are seeing in store and apparently you are too :) :) This Saturday is booking quickly, so if this is your weekend to begin, continue, or finalize dress shopping, please give us a ring or shoot us an email and we'll get you a spot....

That being said...we have a wonderful loft area for bridesmaids, and it is reserved all day Saturday except for two hours ... !!! When we reserve the loft, the bride and her party has exclusive access to the space, dresses, and changing area....which means it's not always possible to walk-in for bridesmaids...usually it's not a problem, but this weekend is especially maids-crazy! Please let us know if you will be looking for your girls this weekend!

The new collections continue to arrive in store....and oh they are fabulous! Check out the gorgeous Jim Hjelm above.... The full line of Lela Rose 2010 arrived today and they are really the cutest, most darling little dresses you have ever come to see....

Finally -- please check back here or connect to us on Twitter to follow the newest gowns in store, the most fabulous jewelry coming in, and more!

This blog and Twitter will also be the best way for you to track updates to store hours regarding inclement weather. Though we never plan to close, we do have a healthy respect for Miss Mother Nature and will make modifications accordingly. Stay tuned, and stay warm!!! :)
