Bridal Spotlight: Abby and Jonny’s Elegant Affair at the InterContinental!

What was your inspiration for your wedding?

Oddly enough i was inspired by photos of a couple outdoor weddings that were very different styles from the way mine ended up, but i loved the rustic feel and tried to incorporate that into a formal black-tie setting.

What was your favorite part of wedding planning?

I loved meeting with all my vendors and envisioning how the room would look once it all came together.

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

The color scheme was very neutral so it was easy to pick based on that. one of the photos that inspired me actually had similar colored bridesmaid dresses and i loved the way they looked. once i showed Stacey the picture she helped me find the perfect options.

What did you choose?

I gave the girls their choice of the Jenny Yoo Kate & Anya dreses AND Dessy styles LR164, LR166 & LR168.

What color?
Jenny Yoo – Barley, Dessy – Bailey  – they happened to be the exact same material and color and matched perfectly to the point that you would never know that half the girls were wearing different brands!

What were you looking for in your bridesmaid dresses?

I wanted there to be enough options that everyone would find a dress they liked. I also wanted the dresses to look elegant and fun at the same time.

How was Stacey/Lindsay/Jaime most helpful?

Stacey was helpful in every way 🙂 I had no questions left unanswered, and each of my bridesmaids.
What did you choose for your bridal gown?
I wore my sisters gown which she wore 6 years earlier; Stacey knew that I had planned on making some slight alterations and even let me come in and try on some bridal gowns in the store just to help me decide what to do with my sister’s dress and get some inspiration.

Tips for brides when selecting their BM dresses?  Bridal Gowns?

Try to think about what your bridesmaids will be excited to wear and feel beautiful in – the happier everyone else is the better you’ll feel on that day too!

How was your experience at Flair?

Perfect, wouldn’t have had it any other way!

Where did you get married??

Where did you go on your honeymoon?

Casa de Campo in La Romana, Dominican Republic– it was amazing!!

Bridal Spotlight-A Very Flair Wedding!

What was your inspiration for your wedding?

Um, this is probably a faux pas especially since I am in the bridal industry but we had no inspiration for our wedding…I know that sounds bad.  We were just really excited to be celebrating and I look at wedding blogs daily so I took little things I liked from the past two years of blog stalking and threw them together!

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

I guess if I had to say anything about the wedding style, I wanted it to be pretty timeless.  I wanted neutral colors on the girls and dresses that complimented each of the girl’s figures and made them feel great.  For my bridal gown I wanted something I would always look back on and think that I picked something that was my style and was classic like our venue!

What did you choose?

My bridal gown was a custom Coren Moore gown.  They made the Chloe with lace and made the front a deeper sweetheart and the back was brought down just slightly.  I added a customized gorgeous belt from A.B. Ellie!  She did an amazing job customizing The Mae belt for me by adding pearls and tons of extra beads to make sure the belt looked like it was a part of my dress!

My girls wore Jenny Yoo bridesmaid dresses most of which are now discontinued.  My maid of honor Carly wore the Thea, my sister Allison wore the Margauex, my sister-in-law Ali wore the Riley, Casey wore the Mackenzie, and Lily wore the fabulous Aidan!  The bridesmaids all wore some awesome accessories that I found a few years ago and since then, I have forgotten who made them – oops! However, I do know that my maid of honor’s necklace was made by the talented Kristen Kuhen.

What color?

I actually did mostly different colors!  Carly and Casey were in Slate Eastern Silk, Allison was in Slate Crinkle Chiffon, Lily was in Charcoal Lux Chiffon, and Ali was in Pewter Shantung.

What were you looking for in your bridesmaid dresses?

I was really open to whatever the girls wanted. I guided them in the direction that I liked and then let them choose.

What were you looking for in your bridal gown?

I actually looked all over for my bridal gown.  I knew I liked lace and I wanted a fitted style but I was hung-up on a ball gown for some reason.  I kept begging to try on ball gowns even though I was advised against it by everyone (including Lindsay)!  I finally realized I was just too short to be able to pull off the big dress, so I settled for a fuller trumpet silhouette. Coren’s dress was perfect because when I danced I felt like such a princess with the full skirt!

 Tips for brides when selecting their BM dresses?  Bridal Gowns?

Timing is everything!  There is a method to our madness, I promise.  You have to do things in order for your look to be cohesiveYour venue is 1st, then move on to your bridal gown, then work on the girls’ dresses and mothers of the bride and groom.  Last but not least help your significant others pick their outfits!

How was your experience at Flair?

Well I own the store….so it was pretty good! 😉

Where did you get married??

Zak and I got married at The Harvard Club on Commonwealth Ave.  I can’t say enough about how much I love this venue! It was such a gorgeous and unique venue in the city, so traditional and cozy.  Zak wants to move in he loves it that much!

What three adjectives would best describe your wedding?

Funny, Elegant, and Light Hearted!

What was your favorite moment at the wedding?

The entire ceremony! I LOVED walking down the aisle because I thought it was so exciting and emotional all at once.   Our ceremony was very “us” we had a family friend marry us so he really knew that we wanted it to be a celebration of life and love. We also wrote our own vows which was nerve racking but in the end it really made our wedding so much fun and personal!

What advice can you give any other Boston/New England Bride?

Write your own vows, hire the best vendors, don’t sweat the small stuff, have fun, dance, eat, don’t drink, take tons of pictures, do a first look if you can, hire a videographer (we remembered nothing after), make sure to leave plenty of time for hair and makeup, take a ton of pictures, smell your flowers, enjoy every single moment and most of all have fun!

Where did you go on your honeymoon?

We went to Couples Swept Away, in Negril Jamaica, thanks to the amazing Marisa Cole at Sensational Travel.

The Little White Dress Dilemma

With my wedding day quickly approaching, (58 days to be exact, not that I am counting or anything) my to-do list somehow keeps getting longer and longer, not shorter…I am literally not sure how that is even possible, and I realized that I really have been putting off one tiny little decision……

What to wear to my rehearsal dinner??

So many questions that go into buying this all important 2nd white…..or maybe not white dress for the rehearsal dinner.

Do I want the dress to look similar to my wedding dress or completely different?

Do I want to wear white or go with a BOLD color?

Should I buy something off the rack or have something specially made?

So those are all the questions I have been grappling with myself, along with the 50 million other things I have to do before the BIG day!

But, lucky for you I did a whole lot of research for you and here are some of my favorite dress we have here at Flair that might work for your rehearsal dinner or one of your other events you have leading up to your wedding.

Keep in mind that most of our designers will custom make your fav dress in white or you can go with one of their other amazing BOLD colors!

New York Bridal Market at a Glance

Saturday October 15th – Day 1

9:30 AM – Lindsay and Stacey board the Amtrak to NYC! A few episodes of Glee on our computers and we’re there!

1:30 PM – Struggle to catch a cab at Penn Station and Lindsay’s watch goes missing…not a good start…

2:00 – We check into the fabulous Omni Berkshire Hotel in Midtown, thanks to our friends at the Omni in Boston. Seriously, if there is an Omni wherever you are traveling, STAY THERE! They are all so classy and gorgeous, we were in heaven!

3:00 – Explore Midtown a little…we search for a Starbucks that the concierge told us was a block away, but never find it (more on that later) and end up getting sandwiches nearby.

4:00 – Make ourselves pretty and presentable (takes longer than you’d think).

4:30 – Wind ruins our hair as we wait for a cab outside of the hotel…Stacey and Lindsay are NOT happy.

5:00 – Check into Pier 94 (where bridal market is held) and have our first meeting with Anna Elyse, yay! We don’t want to give too much away but let’s just say we are SO excited about her new bridal line. We absolutely fell in love with one gown with a textured skirt…stay tuned! She is expanding and growing her bridesmaids’ line as well and added two new fabrics, chiffon and charmuese. Go Annie!

6:30 – Lindsay and Stacey struggle to figure out where to go to dinner. They end up at the hotel restaurant (Fireside) like major losers.  The salad in the parmesan bowl was fab though!

7:30 – Conference call with Flair’s owner Christine to discuss what we’ve seen so far. We are so excited already!

8:30 – Asleep…not kidding. The beds at the Omni were too amazing to resist for too long and poor Stacey is under the weather. Such a trooper!

Sunday October 16th – Day 2

6:00 AM – Time to wake up and get ready! We are sure to use ample Rave hairspray to avoid yesterday’s windy fiasco. P.S. Stacey confirms that the Omni has the best hotel shower EVER. Bonus!

7:30 – We’re out the door and immediately go looking for Starbucks…which we again did not find. Eventually we stumbled across one several blocks away (with the help of our smart phones – seriously, what did we do before those things?!). A fabulous man in a morning coat compliments Lindsay’s trench and sunglasses (the glasses are forever 21, he thought Tom Ford). Her day is made. Then, a turn for the worse: our lovely cab driver starts to drive away with Stacey still half way out the door. She swung her way in though, crisis averted.

9:00 – Appointment to see a potential new bridal designer, Junko Yoshioka. Such nice guys and gorgeous dresses! We have the best job ever!

10:00 – Time to meet with the Jenny Yoo ladies! We love them! Let us start by saying that Jenny has such a good idea for a bridesmaid’s dress that she is in the process of patenting it. Yes, you heard us, a patent. Can’t wait to show you ladies when the samples come in!

11:00 – Meeting with Coren Moore and her team. They are THE sweetest ever and we love hanging out with them, and of course seeing their new styles! We love their new chiffon pieces, which we’ll have in the store in the coming WEEKS! Eeek, so excited!! Plus, later in the season we’ll have a gorgeous bridesmaid’s dress with a ruffle detail and you know how we love us a ruffle!

12:00 PM – Quick trip to see our accessories designer, A.B. Ellie. Ashley is a true genius when it comes to bridal and bridesmaids’ belts. They really add SO much detail to our dresses. We added a few new pieces for the store and we know our girls are going to L-O-V-E them! Plus, we love seeing Ashley and her sister, they are so down to earth and fabulous!

12:30 – Off to Nicole Miller! Her dresses are so much fun, we love seeing them on the gorgeous models. Plus, she has A-MAZING party dresses that are really well priced!

1:30 – MUCH needed lunch break! Stacey and Lindsay wander the waterfront area for awhile and stumble upon a cute little pub. Slow service but great food, just the pick me up we needed!

3:00 – Lynn Lugo time! We are SOSO excited about Lynn’s new styles! In particular, there are three new tops with ruffle details that we fell in LOVE with. They are super cute and wearable, trust us! Plus, she came out with some great soft colors that we think will be very popular this year. Lynn and her husband Pete are the cutest couple ever, so we just love to chat and catch up with them. Plus, they gave us these amazing cups with her logo on them which we now use every day!

4:00 – Definitely time to grab a coffee in the buyer’s lounge area. We are starting to fade!

4:30 – Quick stop at Dessy. Theirs is always an easy one, we know we’re getting everything! We figured out what colors we wanted and were on our way!

5:00 – Our last meeting of the day is with 57 Grand. We love these ladies, definitely be on the lookout for them. They get the best magazine exposure ever and landed another Martha Stewart editorial just recently! They have a super cool bridal style with a removeable tulle skirt, so cool!

6:00 – Headed back to the Omni!

6:30 – Hour and a half conference call with Christine, we have SO much to discuss!

8:00 – Stacey and Lindsay get brave and venture out for dinner! Watch out NYC here we come! We went to this adorable Italian restaurant with THE fastest service ever. The entrees were there literally 2 minutes after we ordered, crazy! Plus, our waiter had a crush on us and gave us a glass of wine on the house. Not gonna lie, we needed it!

9:00 – Back to the Omni, we laugh and watch The Proposal and fall asleep by 11:00 (such rebels after last night).

Monday October 17th – Day 3

6:30 AM – Wake up time! We were ready super early yesterday so we slept a little later.

7:45 – Out the door, we try yet again to find the “close” Starbucks but again end up at the farther one we went to yesterday. Whatever, we’d travel miles and miles for the bucks.

9:00 – Meeting another new designer, Amy Kuschel. She is THE perfect fit for Flair! Her bridal gowns are definitely going to be a step up for us and we KNOW our girls are going to love them! Plus, former Flair girl Leah works with them at her new bridal boutique so we got to catch up with her there. We miss her! Ladies, you are going to DIE over these dresses, we are counting down the days until we can start showing them to you!!

10:00 – Travel to the Intercontinental Hotel where Siri is showing. She got the presidential suite there, go Siri!!

11:00 – Meeting with Siri. She has an absolutely adorable rouched sweetheart style that we know will KILL at Flair.

12:00 PM – Last stop of the trip, Badgley Mischka in Times Square! No new styles but it was still so nice to see their showroom, it’s gorgeous!

12:30 – Quick change into scrubby, train clothes in the Omni bathroom. We ask the concierge yet again where the closer Starbucks is…and still don’t find it. We are convinced it doesn’t exist.

1:00 – Quick lunch in Midtown. We get to eat outside because it is so gorgeous out!

2:00 – Amtrak home! A man and woman behind us refuse to stop talking even though the train is supposed to be quiet. We give a few mean glances, to no avail. On the brighter side, Stacey meets a new man (in the form of an adorable 7 month old baby, who was a major flirt).

Tuesday October 18th – Back to Flair!!! We only wish we had all of those new styles with us, but we should have a lot of them soon after the new year! Stay tuned brides and maids!

 

We had the best time at Bridal Market this year and we are so excited to share all the new gems!

Here’s to a happy, successful, beautifully dressed and healthy 2012!

XOXO

Lindsay & Stacey

 

 

Fall Favorites

It’s no secret that we New Englanders love autumn. With the crisp air, sweaters and those changing leaves that draw gawkers from miles away, it truly is a magical time of year. Here are a few other reasons we love Fall…

1)      Apple picking: Seriously, who doesn’t love a fun day out at an orchard picking apples right off of the tree? Fact: they always taste like 10 times better than the apples you get at the grocery store. Plus, you just feel productive, going out and foraging for your own food and what not. I felt inspired afterwards to continue the productiveness and cook, making applesauce from scratch. Watch out Martha Stewart. Looking for a fab orchard (and who isn’t?)? Try Belkin Lookout Farm in Natick. They have TONS of fresh fruit, as well as a petting zoo. I mean really, there’s something for everyone.

2)      New fall TV: We admit it, we’re kind of TV junkies at Flair. So, Fall always brings a sense of excitement as new shows come out and old favorites pick up from the annoying cliffhangers they left us off at. We highly recommend checking out “The New Girl” on Fox. It is simply adorkable, Zooey Deschanel is a comedy queen. Also, “Up All Night” on NBC is good for laughs, even though we’re not on the baby track just yet.

Hurry up and snatch up these soon to be discontinued styles from Jenny Yoo!

3)      Fall sales at Flair!!: Did you really think we wouldn’t bring this back to Flair somehow? Seriously though, our designers are feeling super generous in the fall and most are offering really great deals just to order your dresses before the crazy winter bridal season begins. So why not check the bridesmaids’ dresses off of your to-do list nice and early AND save some money at the same time! Check out the 411 on the remaining sales below and call us to set up an appointment ASAP!

Coren Moore: 15% off of all bridesmaids’ orders placed by October 31st PLUS one free sash per dress!

Lynn Lugo: $20 off of all dresses (on top of group discount) ordered by November 30th!

Jenny Yoo: Bump it up Promo add and extra 5% off your bridesmaid orders! Catch those styles before they get discontinued.

Siri: Extra $20 (on top of group discount) off all orders of 2 or more bridesmaids’ dresses by November 30th!

Happy Fall 😉

Spotlight on Jen at the Boston Public Library

Alright, we hate to play favorites but seriously when you see this wedding you will understand why Jen and her two bridesmaids were one of our favorite groups we have had in the store!  They picked out the gorgeous Jenny Yoo “Chloe” gown in Aluminum and the dresses fit perfectly in one of the most elegant wedding venues in all of Boston, The Boston Public Library!  We had the chance to interview Jen about her big day and she shared some amazing tips with all your Flair Brides and bridesmaids out there!!

What was your inspiration for your wedding? The venue was definitely inspirational.  We were married at The Boston Public Library.  The space is breathtakingly beautiful and we fell in love with the courtyard space at first sight.  We used lighting to accentuate the beautiful architecture inside and vintage books in our centerpieces to tie in the Library theme.  The books in our centerpieces were also gifts for our guests.  Each guest/couple received a personally inscribed book that in some way had something to do with them – in most cases it was the title or the subject that tied in with their name or their profession or the city where they lived.  We spent a lot of time shopping for books before the wedding but it was so worth it….everyone loved them!  It was such a great feeling when we found “the perfect book”.  It was so fun to watch our guests notice the books – they couldn’t believe it.

Petalena did our flowers and they were absolutely amazing.  I honestly think they were the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen.  I love flowers, so the fact that they were so beautiful and more stunning than I could have dreamed of, made me really, really happy.  The amazing colors help to tie everything together.


More important to us than anything else was that our family and friends had a wonderful time.  We really always approached the wedding more like it was a party for all of them rather than for us.  For that reason I kept almost every detail a secret from everyone.  I really wanted everyone to be surprised by all the details – big and small.


How did you tie in your vision into what you choose for your bridesmaid dresses/bridal gown? The BPL is such a magical, romantic, and elegant space and it was important that the dresses fit into the space….I wanted them to be equally as elegant and classically beautiful.  I was also always drawn to neutral colors and a more formal but sexy silhouette.


What did you choose? The Jenny Yoo “Chloe” gown in Aluminum Shantung- it was perfect!


How was your experience at Flair? We worked primarily with Stacey.  She was fabulous.  We had shopped around before making an appointment at Flair, so honestly I wasn’t expecting to find “the dress” so quickly and easily.  We hadn’t had a very good experience with the bridesmaid dresses up until that point.  I didn’t want the girls to look too “bridesmaidy” if that makes any sense.  It literally took less than 20 minutes at Flair and we had found exactly what we were looking for.  In addition to making us feel very comfortable – almost like old friends – Stacey was also super helpful in getting us exactly everything we wanted.  The color we selected was discontinued (of course) but Stacey made a call to the designer and was able to get us the color we wanted at a discount – we couldn’t ask for anything more!


Tips for brides when selecting their BM dresses? Bridal Gowns? Don’t settle….follow your heart.  Picking a bridal gown was very easy for me.  I knew as soon as I tried on the dress that I had found the one…that said, I surprised all my friends…no one expected a ball gown!  I tried on a lot of beautiful dresses but the ball gown definitely made me feel the most like a bride.  I will never have the opportunity to wear a dress like that again…I’m so glad I did it!


I’ve heard that some brides don’t want their bridesmaids to look “as good as they do” but I felt the exact opposite.  I wanted my bridesmaids to be show stoppers!  They were the first “surprise” of the night…and I wanted to start things off on a high note.  I think the right accessories are also really important – you spend so much time shopping for the dresses…you should want to make sure that you find the perfect necklace, or earrings, or whatever – it totally pulls the look together!


What were you looking for in a bridesmaid dress? I was looking for a long, classic, evening gown.  I had two girls in my wedding party – my sister and my best friend.  Lucky for me both girls are tall, thin, and beautiful so I wanted to find something that complimented their beauty and their great figures.  My dress was a ball gown so I also wanted to find a different shape for the girls.  The bridesmaid dresses we picked were fit and flare.  We altered the dresses slightly from the original design to give them a little bit more of a sweetheart neckline.  Even the tailors told us they were the most beautiful bridesmaid dresses they had worked on – what a compliment!

(The most beautiful statement necklace was designed by Suzanna Dai)

What three adjectives would best describe your wedding? Romantic, Happy, Magical

What was your favorite moment at the wedding? Everything was so perfect, I’m not sure I can pick just one moment.  I loved the moment when I first started walking down the aisle, the moment we were announced as husband and wife, listening to the speech’s from my father, my brother-in-law, and my sister, and being in the middle of the dance floor with my new husband, surrounded by the most important and special people in our lives.  It was a magical night.


What advice can you give any other Boston Bride? My advice would be to enjoy every minute….of it all….from the planning to the big day.  Everything goes by so quickly so you have to remember to live in the moment.  I would also say that every penny we spent on the wedding was well worth it and I would do it all again in a heartbeat….there are definitely places where you can save money….we made a strict budget and we tried very hard to stay within it…but I would honestly say that if there is a detail that is very important to you…you should make sure you get it!

We were so blown away by the beauty of this wedding all captured by an amazing photographer Kelly Dillon….we had to bombard you with pictures, we hope you love them as much as we do!

Cheers to the beautiful couple 😉

Linds & Stacey

 

Ladies, don’t forget Jenny Yoo is having a Trunk show this month….an extra 10% off all floor length bridesmaids dresses!!
