A Fairy Tale Wedding

Timeless, elegant and classic……in her Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen gown

Now that is how you make an entrance……

Pippa Middleton, was a show-stopper in her ivory Satin based Crepe gown also designed by Burton for McQueen

The long 3 and a half minute walk down the aisle showing off that  9 ft train!!

The happy couple, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge!

Official wedding portrait….how cute are those pageboys and bridesmaids?!?!

Reception dress….. (we told you they were popular!)

Also, a Burton for McQueen creation, a dazzling satin sweetheart gown

with a circle skirt and embellished waist!

The dynamic Pippa Middleton in her reception dress, by Burton in a beautiful green jewel tone!!

 

So, it is the day after the BIG day.

I have had time to let it all sink in, and I think that it was truly done perfectly. Watching a commoner become a princess, and marry the her long time love was extremely emotional and obviously every little girls dream!

Tradition is extremely important to the royal family and the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge adhered to tradition but were able to have fun and reign in a new younger era of royalty by showing how much they truly loved each other and how much fun they have with each other!

Princess Catherine’s fashion choices were timeless but with a modern twist.  She was reminiscent of the beautiful Grace Kelly but true to her style which is always a modern and classic elegance!  Both of Princess Catherine’s wedding dresses were classic styles that will be copied and will hopefully set some new trends.  Gowns will be  moving more towards  classic, simple lines and less fluff (like our dresses at Flair! OBVIOUSLY!). Cheers to Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen the designs were amazing and truly beyond anything  I could have ever imagined!  What a wonderful day.  It was so nice to celebrate a day filled with love, hope and fashion.  Cheers to the happy couple and may they live happily ever after, just like the fairy tales!

XOXO

It’s that time again…..to wear it again!!

It’s finally Spring people and no one is more excited than Flair! We are so excited to start adding some new Spring accessories to our Wear it Again blogs!
This week we are spicing it up with a jean jacket, hold onto your hats! Seriously though, all this cutie dress (Abby by Jenny Yoo) needs is a classic jean jacket it make it a perfect day dress. Then we paired it with gold flats and this adorable purple necklace from New York and Co. and we are ready to hit the streets of Boston!
Hope to see some of you maids out and about in your dresses! Definitely let us know if you do, we’d love to feature you on our blog!
Happy Spring!

Things we love: Different colored bridesmaids’ dresses!

We love it when a bride thinks outside of the box. After all, your wedding should be as unique as you are! One of the easiest, and prettiest, ways to separate yourself from the pack is by having your bridesmaids’ wear slightly different colors.  I just placed an order today for three bridesmaids and each is wearing a slightly different colored green. All of the greens go well together and stay along the bride’s color theme, but each girl was able to choose the green that looks best on her.

A big trend these days is letting the bridesmaids have some choice in terms of their dress style; the reason being that with all those different body types it is hard to find one dress that looks great on everyone. It’s the same thinking with colors; not all colors look great with all skin tones/hair colors. You may find an adorable dress but if you put it in a color that your maid just cannot pull off then she will never even think about re-wearing it. We do have one warning though for those considering mixed colors: it can be more work for the bride to organize. You’ll need to keep an eye on who has chosen what color and decide if you’re OK with some overlap. The result of all of that work, though, is a gorgeous and unique bunch of maids, hopefully in dresses/colors that they can re-wear in the future! Who doesn’t love that?

Things we love: Statement pieces!!!

With the royal wedding right around the corner, there has been non-stop talk (especially amongst the Flair girls) about the statement pieces that Kate Middleton will inevitably wear. 
I mean, come on, she has access to the Queen’s jewels and an endless supply of Philip Treacy hats, of course she’ll pull off some jaw-dropping bridal accessories. So in honor of the upcoming nuptials, we’ve compiled some of the most fabulous statement pieces around…and just because you won’t be gaining an official royal title on your wedding day, doesn’t mean you don’t deserve to feel (and dress) like a princess.

 Make sure you make a STATEMENT on your “BIG” day!! We sure know Kate Middleton will!!

It’s all about COLOR!!!


I think it was the boy scouts who said it best……
“Be prepared!”
      Such great advice, especially when shopping for all your fab and beautiful bridesmaids! You have about a million decisions to make before your BIG day and choosing the color of your bridesmaids dresses is really one of the biggest and most important. 

          Although I hate to refer to your lovely ladies as decoration, the truth is they are in a sense.  They will be the array of color surrounding you, and the color you choose is the catalyst for many other decisions (flowers, groomsmen’s attire, centerpiece colors) and will essentially set the tone for the wedding! Ouch, now that sounds like a HUGE decision.
Don’t fret we are here to help you!
      Make sure you come into Flair with ideas….whether that be magazine clippings, your favorite scarf, or paint chips. Anything helps!
So, don’t forget that boy scout motto “be prepared”!

We are looking forward to helping you choose the color and dress of you and your bridesmaids’ dreams!

XOXO
Stacey 🙂

Stuff We Love!! Long Dresses…….These dresses are long on style ;)

Floor length dresses have always been a point of debate in the bridesmaids’ community. When and where are they appropriate? Are my bridesmaids going to be comfortable in them? Do I have to pay an arm and a leg to get a gorgeous, long dress? Your friends at Flair are here to answer these hard hitting questions and find the floor length dress of your dreams!
  Dessy Collection is a great place to start looking for moderately priced floor length gowns. Most are in the low $200 area, some even under $200 (especially if you have a large number of bridesmaids – the group discount is your friend)!
   
Style #2829                              Style #6613                            Style #2832
 Plus, their flowy styles are perfect even for a summer wedding. Some brides think that if they are getting married in the summer that they have to get short bridesmaids’ dresses and that’s just not the case! You can find light, breezy floor length gowns that scream summer! Plus, Dessy’s newer styles have a blousy look that mimic our fav summer maxi dresses, making them easier to re-wear in the future (c’mon, with a jean jacket over it you’d totally wear it out to dinner)!  
   “Margaux” in Slate Crinkle Chiffon                            “Talia” in Concord Chiffon          

Above we have Jenny Yoo’s chiffon gowns and they are amazing too. The styles are elegant and timeless, perfect for a more formal, evening affair. Even better, the chiffon is so lightweight that all of your girls will feel comfortable in their gowns all night long! In general, bridesmaids tell us that they appreciate a long gown. It’s a change of pace and you don’t have to worry as much about the shoes since they are hidden. So, if you’re leaning towards long, go for it! We can help you find you a gorgeous gown for any occasion! 
Tell us what you are loving!!

And we’re off!

I don’t know about you, but 2011 started off with a bang for us here at Flair! It felt like the starting gun went off at the beginning of a huge race, with the finish line being all of your 2011 wedding dates. As soon as the calendar switched over to the new decade, our phone has been ringing off the hook with brides calling to schedule an appointment to come in and look for both bridal gowns and bridesmaids’ dresses. Now that 2011 brides can officially say “I’m getting married THIS year” they are starting to panic and want to get their bridesmaids’ dresses and bridal gowns squared away ASAP (understandably). 
Here’s the problem: we want to help ALL of you but it’s hard to fit all of you into our schedule. Evening appointments during the week and weekend appointments are a rare commodity these days and are booking about three weeks in advance. Crazy!
So here’s today’s lesson, Flair friends. Call us ASAP to make your appointment and have a few days in mind that we can look into for you. That will give you the most chances for success this busy season. We hate turning anybody away because we’re so looking forward to working with as many of you as we can this year!
Happy 2011 brides!
Lindsay
