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)

Spotlight on Kat’s Wedding at The Towers in Narragansett, RI

[really_simple_share]

Kat came into Flair and made quite the impression on us. We could tell right away it was going to be a beautiful, fun and bright wedding!  Boy were we right!! Looks like that had a beautiful day at The Towers in Narragansett captured by he talented Kate McElwee.

What was your inspiration for your wedding?
Our inspiration for the wedding was summer beach party fun! We wanted  our guests to be casual and comfortable so they could enjoy the night.


How did you tie that inspiration in to what you choose for your bridesmaid dresses/bridal gown?
Our bridesmaids dresses were so colorful and fun! My favorite colors are turquoise and pink, that’s why I chose the color scheme. The cut for the girls was absolutely perfect – extremely flattering, and they were in alignment with our casual theme. My dress was all alencon lace, a fit to flare cut, and while extremely elegant – -it wasn’t too much dress and was easy to get around in!


What dress did you choose?
We chose the Coren Moore “Courtney”  two-toned dress for the bridesmaids. It was ivory silk shantung on top, tiffany blue silk shantung on the bottom along with the pink sash.
The junior bridesmaids wore the junior lilly dress in the tiffany blue silk shantung with a pink seersucker sash.
The flower girls wore the junior lilly dress in white seersucker.


How was Stacey/Lindsay/Leah most helpful?
Stacey, Lindsay, and Leah were wonderful! As you can see, we had an extremely large wedding party, 8 bridesmaids, two junior bridesmaids, and two flower girls…not even including the boys! Many of the girls are from out of state. Stacey, Lindsay, and Leah were so patient taking orders and making sure sizes were spot on. They were also great with the kids who wanted to try everything on! As far as a bride goes, they were fun to work with, calm, and most importantly – – they girls don’t pressure you. Stacey, Lindsay, and Leah also gave us great individual attention in all of our appointments.

Tips for brides when selecting their BM dresses?  Bridal Gowns?
My only advice for a bride when selecting their bridesmaid dresses is that they should really go with what their heart tells them! I went with my favorite colors – -so I knew I couldn’t go wrong. Plus, the colors matched the season.

How was your experience at Flair?
My experience at Flair was amazing! My mother, sisters, and I took numerous trips to Boston to search for bridesmaid dresses, and nothing was unique or had the extra oomph that we wanted. When we walked into Flair, we were so excited to see different dresses that matched our theme perfectly. They also have a wide range of styles in different colors – – something that fits every body type.

Who designed your bridal gown?
Ana Hernandez out of Boston personally designed and sewed my dress!

Where did you get married?
Our wedding was at St. Thomas More Catholic Church in Narragansett, RI. The reception was held at “The Towers” in Narragansett.

What three adjectives would best describe your wedding?
Fun, casual, and family-oriented.

What was your favorite moment at the wedding?
My favorite moment at the wedding was walking out of the church with Alex, as a newly married couple. The weather was sunny and beautiful, the church bells were ringing and we were just so excited to be married!

What advice can you give any other Boston/New England Bride?
My advice to other brides is to relax, take a deep breath, and use the help of your family and friends. Some of the planning can be a bit stressful… of course it’s time consuming, but try to laugh your way through it, and enjoy it!

Where did you go on your honeymoon?
We went to Oahu, Maui, Kaui, and stopped in San Francisco on the way back! It was awesome.
