Destination Weddings: Closer than you think!

Photo Shoot Fabulousness: Destination Weddings Edition!

Not to overstate things, but New England is literally the best place to live in the entire world. Bar none. End of story. OK, we may be just a little biased and yes, it’s true, we have to put up with some killer winters, but our stunning Springs, Summers and Falls make it all worthwhile! Plus, with all of our fabulous little states so close together, you can take an amazing vacation without going more than a couple hours from home. Also, we have the Red Sox, Bruins, Patriots and Celtics. Boom. Enough said. Going back to vacations though, on the same note, New England brides can throw a stunning destination wedding without ever having to board a plane! There are tons of amazing spots around New England that will be new to you and your guests, but still close to home. The smart, talented staff at Southern New England Weddings Magazine realized what a destination wedding gem New England really is, and they decided to dedicate their new issue to just that! Check out this stunning Nantucket themed shoot to see how easy it is to create a fresh, destination wedding look in our own backyard. Plus, Flair provided some of the gorgeous attire for this shoot, so yeah, it’s pretty epic! Grab the new edition of Southern New England Weddings today to see the entire shoot and start to plan your close to home, destination wedding!

Sigh. We're swooning already and we're just on the cover!

True, the weather in New England can be unpredictable, but who cares when you consider how stunning this overcast shot is!

We love the soft, romantic color palette of this shoot, and that cake with mussel shells is kinda fantastic!

Summer Event Shopping – Stress Free!

Summer event shopping – stress free!

Well, it’s that time of year again. The flowers are blooming, the birds are chirping and our beloved white pants are coming out of storage (maybe not for another week if you abide by that old Memorial Day rule). Spring is a truly amazing time of year, but it can also be a little stressful. “Am I bathing suit ready?” “I need a spray tan STAT!” Oh, and don’t even get us started on pollen. On top of all of that, most of us have about 5,000 events coming up this summer and NOTHING to wear to any of them. Bridal/baby showers, bachelorette parties and weddings, oh my!

People ask us all the time if they can wear a Flair dress to these events and the answer is YES…BUT there’s usually not enough time to get them in. We need around 4 months lead time, and most of us are not on the ball that quickly. Thank goodness for The Dessy Collection! They have an amazing selection of Quick Delivery dresses that would be perfect for all of your summer events! They arrive in a matter of weeks, not months, and even better, they are unique! We love all of the major ready to wear stores but you always run the risk of seeing someone else at your event in the same dress. Nightmare! So, check out some of our favorite quick delivery dresses below and give Flair or Frills a buzz if you see anything you like 🙂

Style 2912 - Only $252!  A little light for a wedding, but it comes in the darker shade below too!

Bachelorette/Shower Party Planning Tips!

found on http://www.tumblr.com/tagged/girls?before=1311567126

Bridesmaids, this blog is for especially for you! Brides, we’re going to try and say this nicely: please go away. We love you but we’ve got some surprises to plan for you so TTFN!

OK, now that we’ve gotten rid of our lovely brides, we can get to planning their showers and bachelorette parties! Have you started the process yet? It can be difficult to do, especially when the bridesmaids are all over the country. We’ve all been on one of those never ending email chains where nothing really gets accomplished.

So annoying! Have no fear, LastBash is here! It’s a new social networking type site where you can all get together and bounce around party ideas. Once you choose your location, LastBash also can provide recommendations on local hotels, restaurants and more. Plus, once you get the guest list finalized everyone can head to LastBash to RSVP and get more info on the event. This is seriously one of those ideas we wish we had thought of, it’s genius! Check them out and kiss your party planning woes good bye! Also, be sure to clue your bride in about the site after the fact (we don’t want her peeking at any potential surprises!), so she can use it to plan an epic bash for you one day!

 

Happy planning and plotting!

XOXO

Linds & Stace
