The year is 1991, the place, my childhood bedroom. There’s excitement in the air as Teddy Ruxpin takes his place at the front of the audience of troll dolls. Ken joins the bear up front, looking as stoic as ever. Barbie comes around the corner in her fabulous, white wedding dress, complete with enormous puffy sleeves and lace turtleneck; the epitome of understated elegance. Then and there, with my goldfish bearing witness and the honorable Ruxpin presiding, Ken and Barbie pledge their love to one another. There’s not a dry eye in the house.
This, my friends, is how most of us spent our childhood days (atleast I hope it wasn’t just me, right??). We dreamt about our wedding day and made fake plans, with zero regard to budget mind you. That being said, it’s OK if you find you still need some inspiration when it comes time to actually plan your big day. Even I’ll admit that some of my 1991 ideas did not come to fruition for my 2011 wedding. Apparently Joey McInitre was just too busy to be my Justice of the Peace. C’mon, priorities Joe.
So, when the time comes that you get proposed to and you can finally plan your real wedding, I highly recommend attending the Brides of Distinction fashion show and Brunch at the Omni Parker House for some inspiration. While you sit and enjoy a delicious brunch catered by the Omni, wedding experts will dish on what’s hot in weddings this year (for example, the editor of “The Knot” will be there, and you know she knows a thing or two). Plus, you’ll get to taste some gorgeous cakes, discover what flowers are perfect for your season and see some of the wide, wide array of linen and table setting options (who knew there were so many different kinds of ivory linens??). Oh and we will be there too, showing off some gorgeous bridal gowns and bridesmaids’ dresses! Peak your interest? Contact the Omni ASAP for tickets, because they are running out quickly! We would love to see you there! Barbies and troll dolls welcome as well!
