Spotlight on Katie’s Perfect Pink Wedding!

We are on a roll with some seriously gorgeous weddings!!  We are so lucky to be a part of so many wonderful bride’s weddings, and Katie is no exception.  Every time she graced us with her presence at Flair we all left with a smile on our face!! She is warm, sweet and extremely kind!  Her wedding was infused with pink and complimented her venue in the Adirondacks Mountains. Enjoy her perfectly pink wedding.

What was your inspiration for your wedding?

The color pink and the Adirondacks!


How did you tie that inspiration in to what you choose for your bridesmaid dresses/bridal gown?

Our bridesmaids wore Coren Moore silk shantung azalea (light pink) dresses, I wore an azalea Coren Moore bridal sash for the reception and the groom and groomsmen wore pink Vineyard Vines ties.  The Coren Moore dresses and my gown were a perfect fit for a day wedding in the Adirondack Mountains.


What were you looking for in your bridesmaid dresses?

I wanted our bridesmaids to look and feel great in their dresses!  Two of our bridesmaids helped me select a handful of different styles from Coren Moore’s bridesmaid collection for each of them to choose from.  Though I did not let our bridesmiads decide on the color of their dresses, I wanted them to be able to pick a style of dress that they felt great in.  When you look and feel good in what you are wearing the day is always more fun!


How was Stacey/Lindsay/Brooke most helpful?

Stacey, Lindsay and Brooke were all very helpful!  Brooke helped me each time I visited Flair, she had wonderful suggestions and ideas for outfitting our bridal party.  All three girls assisted with placing orders and notifying me when anything arrived at the store.  Everyone at Flair was incredibly friendly, accommodating and responsive.

What did you choose for your bridal gown?

Coren Moore’s Chloe Gown in ivory silk shantung.  I wore an ivory bridal sash and my mother’s veil for the ceremony and an azalea bridal sash for the reception.

How was your experience at Flair?

Fantastic!  I highly recommend Flair to any bride for both her bridal gown and bridesmaid dresses.

Where did you get married?

We were married at Sacred Heart Church in Lake George, NY.  Our Reception was at The Sagamore Resort on Lake George in Bolton Landing, NY.

What was your favorite part of the Wedding?

All of it!

Where did you go on your honeymoon?

For our honeymoon we vacationed at the Four Seasons Resort Lana’i at Manele Bay.  We highly recommend this location to any couples looking to honeymoon in Hawaii, it was so much fun!

Spotlight on Deb & TJ’s Wedding!

Deb was married on 6.18.11 to T.J. on the water at Ocean Edge Resort and Golf Club in Brewster, MA.  They had over 250 guests in attendance.

What was the inspiration for your wedding? Cape Cod.  My fiancé’s family summer on the Cape.  We love being outside, at the beach and enjoying a nice relaxing summer.  We wanted everyone to experience why we love the Cape so much.

Give us three words to describe your wedding? Amazing, best time of my life, humorous…..obviously Deb had a hard time sticking to just 3!

What is important to you on your big day, except for marrying your fiancé? The Party of course!  And our guests.  We want everyone to have a good time.  We want a big fun party with delicious food and drink.

You purchased your bridesmaid dresses from Flair.  Tell me why you selected your dresses? We were in Flair in October of last year.  I knew that I wanted strapless and a dress above the knee that had a Capey feel.  I fell in love with Coren Moore’s Nolan dress.  The girls could easily wear it again, it is short, has pockets and is adorable.  Plus the dress was available in the hydrangea blue color that I love – Riviera Blue.

Was it easy to pick out your bridesmaid dress? I had an amazing time at Flair.  Stacey was my consultant, she was energetic, bubbly – we were two peas in a pod.  And Lindsay was super helpful.  She answered all the questions that I had about sizing for one of my bridesmaids who had a baby.

Share your secrets with brides who are still hunting for the perfect bridesmaid dress? Make sure to decide on what you would like first, but still be open to suggestions.  Do your research.  All of the designers have great websites.  Visit the sites, narrow down your choice to the style and type you love.  This is super important, as it will make your appointment time run much more smoothly.  Bring no more than 4 of your most trusted advisers to the appointment.  They will help you get to a decision quickly.

What did you enjoy most about planning your wedding? Dress shopping of course! Kenneth Pool was my designer for my bridal gown, I tried it on last summer in NY and fell in love, then eventually bought it from the only place in MA that carries him, Christina’s in Andover. I loved looking for and finding my dress and bridesmaid dresses.  It was also a HUGE relief when we found our venue, then we could move forward with the rest of the details.

What was your favorite part of your BIG day? My favorite moment(s) were during cocktail hour (and the reception, too)–talking to everyone and looking around at all of our friends and family that were there to celebrate with us.

Words of wisdom for all those brides planning a wedding?

I have a few words of wisdom that I learned along the way: If you’re looking to get married in the “high” season (anytime other than winter, basically), book way in advance (at least 10 months for most in-demand places, i.e. the Cape).

Have a contingency plan–you may not need it, but make sure there’s an alternative (for EVERYTHING) due to inclimate weather (if you’re getting married outside or want to do pictures outside); know all of the details about what will be changed, substituted, etc.

Lastly, let your guests enjoy all that Boston/Cape Cod/New England has to offer…incorporate the local “flair” into your wedding (favors, centerpieces, invitations, maps/things to do, etc.). Your guests that aren’t from the area will love learning more about your favorite spot!

Where did you Honeymoon? Our honeymoon was AWESOME! Greece for about a week (Athens, Santorini, Crete), Turkey for about a week (Istanbul and Antalya–southern “turquoise” coast) and Italy for a week (Amalfi coast, Capri, Rome). We had 3 weeks to travel and wanted to enjoy a mix of relaxation (Santorini!) and sightseeing (Rome, Athens)

Wear it again…snow day edition!

I know you thought we were going to make our snow day edition of Wear it Again all bundled up and warm…..well we tricked you!! We did just the opposite.  We are hoping and praying for warmer weather……soooooooo Lindsay beautifully modeled Coren Moore’s Laurie dress once again but in none other than pink SEERSUCKER!!! 

 All you summer brides out there think about it!!  It would be so so cute for a Cape Cod or Vineyard wedding.  

 She easily wore it again with a white matching zip up for those cool summer night!!  Hoping this warmed up you and yours on this blistery snow day!!

XOXO Stace 🙂

New Years Resolution…..Wear it again!!

In honor of Coren Moore extending her Trunk show at Flair, we decided to wear “NOLAN” again.  One of Coren Moore’s most popular styles.  So we know a bunch of you out there have this cute dress in your closet!
Jaime was nice enough to join us again for our latest version of wear it again. 
In her before pictures she is wearing the “Nolan” dress in Ruby Red with a cute               blue seersucker sash.

We jazzed up Jaime’s look for New Years Eve with a black sequin blazer and a skinny    black belt! Super easy!!
And there you have it our last wear it again of 2010….but don’t you worry we will be back at it in 2011 and better than ever! 
Happy New Years!!
Hoping 2011 will be a wonderful year!!
XOXO Lindsay, Stacey & Brooke
