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!

Jill & Nate’s Nautical New England Wedding!

This wedding is close to my heart, mainly because I am lucky enough to say I know the bride and groom!  They are quite the two love birds….you know the type, making googly eyes at each other across the room, always rooting for each other whether it be at a marathon or a triathlon, they are each others biggest fans and seeing the sparks and love between the two of them is quite a joy for all those who know them.  I haven’t met two people who were more meant for each other!  And I really think it shows in their wedding pictures.  What a beautiful and romantic wedding for two people who truly deserve it! 😉
Enjoy the fabulous wedding of Mr & Mrs Nate & Jill Brown!
What was your inspiration for your wedding?
Our venue was truly our inspiration for our wedding. I had been to a baby naming for a newborn I babysat in highschool at the Atlantica.  I knew as I entered the function room that that is where I wanted to get married someday. The room has panoramic views of the harbor so we decided to go with a nautical theme, playing off the venue. We wanted our wedding to capture our love for the ocean and give guests that classic summertime party!

How did you tie that inspiration in to what you choose for your bridesmaid dresses/bridal gown?
My husband, Nate, chose the color for our wedding!  He thought it was obvious that it would be “blue” since the reception was on the water.  I loved that he wanted to add his advice into these often bride-only decisions, so we went with blue (which gave me a lot to work with since there are so many shades of blue) and we added in some splash of teal and hot pink for fun.

What did you choose?
Dessy Collection
What color?
Sailor blue
What were you looking for in your bridesmaid dresses?
Since our wedding was going to be in July I wanted a dress for the girls that was comfortable for that time of year. I wanted the dresses to be affordable since we all have a closet full of old bridesmaid dresses we’ve never worn again! I wanted all the girls to pick their own style dress, keeping it within the same color, in hopes they will wear it again.  They all ended up chosing various styles all in chiffon which I think worked well for the 80 degree day we had and they all looked great!  Flair offered a lot of choices as far as colors, style of dress and prices.
How was Stacey/Lindsay/Brooke most helpful?
Stacey was amazing!  She was more than helpful, offering her honesty, experiences and expertise.  She is enthusiastic, energetic and is genuinely excited for her clients upcoming weddings, which is exactly what a bride is in need of!
What did you choose for your bridal gown?
I went to the Boston’s “Running of the brides” in February.  I went after the hustle and bustle of enery driven brides was over at 6pm. I met my sister and mother there, tried on about 10 gowns and found my dress.  The warnings before going would be there are no changing rooms, so I just wore a bathing suit while trying on the gowns.  There were still hundreds of dresses left that late at night and we were able to skip the craziness that morning!
Tips for brides when selecting their BM dresses?  Bridal Gowns?
I would recommend not bringing your entire bridal party to try on bridesmaid dresses if youre chosing one for all of them. Don’t get me wrong, I know you love everyone in your bridal party, which is why you chose them, but that doesn’t mean you’re going to love everyone’s opinions. That being said I realized everyone has different taste, let them chose their own! Stick with a color or style and let them have some say in where they spend their money!
How was your experience at Flair?
Flair is the cutest little bridal boutique. Its small size makes it intimate for you and your bridesmaids, family, and friends. With having the whole store to yourself during your appointment the store really allows you to play around and have fun…and isn’t that what this is all about?!
Where did you get married??
We got married at St. Theresas Chapel in Humarock, MA, my summer church growing up.  Our reception was at Atlantica Restaurant in Cohasset.
What was your favorite moment at the wedding?
We took pictures before the wedding and we met at Scituate Lighthouse.  Our photographer set Nate up on one side of the lighthouse and I had to walk around til I found him.  Seeing each other on our wedding day for the first time was a feeling I will never forget.  I’ve know him for almost a decade, but for some reason I had butterflies in my stomach looking for him around the lighthouse.  AT the wedding my favorite moment was sitting at our sweetheart table together. Listening to the speeches and LAUGHING.  Looking around and seeing everyone celebrating for you is an overwhelming feeling that I’ll never forget sharing with my new husband.  We couldn’t stop smiling.
Where did you go on your honeymoon?
We went to Tahiti and Bora Bora. IT WAS A DREAM
List of vendors?

James Patrick Photography (would definitely recommend!)
Festive Events DJ Dave Long (phenomenal) He setup a steel drum player for us during cocktail hour.

Spotlight on Kelly & Mike’s Loving & Lighthearted Wedding!

While I love all of my brides, there is a special place in my heart for today’s bride spotlight. She has been one of my very best friends since we bonded over the amazing stylings of the Limited Too in 5th grade (no one else our age seemed to have quite the same level of appreciation…matching your scrunchie to your leggings and what not). Fast forward 15 years to 2011 and you’ll find us just as close (though we’ve dropped the scrunchies since then) and getting married 2 weeks apart. I LOVED having such a close friend going through the stressful, yet amazing, wedding planning process with me, it was such a gift.

Kelly and Mike, you were truly made for eachother and I am soso happy for you and love you both very much! I am looking forward to sharing many more milestones with you in the future (i.e. Kelly and I may have already begun planning a shared 5th anniversary trip to Sandals…)!

Without further ado, here’s a little taste of Mr. and Mrs. Coyne’s FABULOUS day

What was the inspiration for your wedding?

When my husband Mike and I started talking about our wedding, we wanted to make sure that there were aspects of both of us throughout. Our aim was to incorporate our love of music, my love of hydrangea flowers with fun, creative, and handmade details.

What were you looking for in a bridesmaid dress?

As I thought about the bridesmaid dresses, I knew that I wanted a short and whimsical dress that you would want to wear again and again.

What dress did you choose? What color?

Lynn Lugo’s Blake dress in Phlox (such a beautiful blue- looked amazing on all the girls)

How was Lindsay most helpful?

Lindsay asked a lot of questions before my initial appointment, so that she knew what I wanted and what I did not want. She pulled SO many dresses before I arrived for my appointment that it was clear that she understood my vision better than I did! Lindsay was amazing in that she gave my group her undivided attention and was patient with me as I looked for just the right color. When it was time to order the dresses, she worked with all of my bridesmaids who lived in many different states and answered all of their questions through email.

Any tips for brides when selecting their BM dresses?  Bridal Gowns?

In terms of helpful tips, when picking a bridesmaid dress, bring a couple of girls with you to the appointment, and narrow the dress selection to one or two dresses then send the selections to all of your girls- that way you are not overwhelmed by too many opinions. In terms of wedding dresses, I wish someone had told me to be open to all shapes and sizes of dresses before I started looking for my dress. I found that the consultants knew WAY more than I did about what would look right on my body and my bridesmaids body. I would have saved a lot of time and frustration if I let the consultants choose dresses for me from the beginning.

How was your experience at Flair?

Wonderful! Lindsay and Stacey are professional, friendly, and supportive. I wish I could get married again (still to Mike!) so that I could do the process with Flair again and again. I highly recommend working with Flair- they know their inventory and have incredible style!

Where did you get married?

Mike and I met at Providence College in Rhode Island. We were married at St. Dominic Chapel on the Providence College campus-best day of our lives 🙂

What three adjectives would best describe your wedding?

Loving, fun, lighthearted

What was your favorite moment at the wedding?

Too many moments- hard to pick just one! Although, I loved watching all of my closest family and friends dress up in wigs and mustaches and pick out props to enter the photobooth at the reception. I also loved dancing and singing at the top of my lungs to Mike’s college cover band during the last hour of the reception. My bridesmaids and I all threw on the cover bands tshirts on over our dresses and danced the night away!

Where did you go on your honeymoon?

Antigua- Sandal resort for 7 nights, 8 days- insane! Loved every second and would seriously consider moving there- beautiful!

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

Have fun, shop around, start as early as you can with planning the ceremony location, reception location, dj, and photographer. Then relax a little and enjoy shopping around for invitations, flowers, and the extras. Mike and I agree- it was the little details that truly made our wedding- so don’t forget the little meaningful details. Also- only pick the girls that know you the best (how to calm you down, how to make you laugh) to be in your bridal party- my girlskept me sane and stuck by myself the day before my wedding-when I needed them the most- love them!!
