Get inspired by “Pinterest”

There are many reasons why I am jealous of 2012 brides. As many of you fellow 2011 brides can probably attest, the year after you get married is super fun and all buuuuuuut also filled with some wedding withdrawals. Planning the wedding takes up so much of your time and energy and then afterwards you’re left trying to figure out what to do with all of that extra time. Well, one of the things that I’ve been doing to fill my time is going on Pinterest….constantly. As my husband eloquently put it “you’re on that website a lot.” Yes honey, I am. I am designing our future home, dressing our future kids and planning interesting meals to cook for you, so I’ve kinda got my hands full here.

Sorry, I got a little off topic there. Circling back around, Pinterest is another reason why I am jealous of 2012 brides. It is literally the best way to organize all of your fab wedding ideas. See a flower bouquet online that you like? Pin it! Then, bring any device with internet access to your meeting with your florist and BOOM they can see it quickly and easily. It is crazy that only one short year ago I was bringing torn out magazine photos to my meetings. Ugh, that’s so 2011.

So, check out Flair on Pinterest to steal some of our amazing ideas and get yourself started. Like me, I’m sure you’ll be neglecting your fiancé/husband in no time (sorry hubby, but really I’m doing it for our future)!

 

 

Happy Pinning!

XOXO

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

Spotlight on Marcella & Jason’s New York City “Urban” Wedding!

I have been anxiously awaiting writing about this fabulous wedding for months.  This wedding holds a special place in my heart because Marcella really trusted us to help her make her bridesmaids stand out from other bridal parties.  As soon as we spoke to her on the phone we knew this was going to be a wedding we would always remember.  Marcella was a fabulous bride to work with mainly because you could feel the love in the room every time she came in with her bridesmaids and family. Marcella was very excited to help her bridesmaids pick out a dress that fit their personality and made them feel beautiful.  We worked very hard to have the color pallet look city-ish and fun!

What was your inspiration for your wedding?

I grew up in downtown Manhattan and my family still lives there.  I have lived in Boston for 7 years, but I still think of New York City as my original home.  My husband spent a couple crucial years in New York, and he also cares about it.  When we thought about the most significant party we might ever throw, we knew we wanted it to be there.  We chose the Bowery Hotel, which is just a couple blocks from my childhood home, because it feels like Greenwich Village (even though it’s pretty new!) and because I knew I could walk there from my apartment on my wedding day.  Also, just about the best thing in the world is an outdoor terrace on a hot New York City night.

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

I chose shades of gray to harmonize with the city.  I wanted the girls to look as fabulous and individual as they are, so I chose three different shades of gray and each girl chose her own Lynn Lugo style.  The maids of honor and the junior bridesmaid wore lilac so that they would be distinguished, and also because who doesn’t love lilac with gray!  Stacey worked with us on eight different dresses, which was pretty awesome!

What did you choose?
I basically chose colors & fabrics, and the girls did the rest.  The best part was that I think each girl felt glamorous in what she was wearing (or so I hope!).  I wanted to emphasize each person rather than the fact that they were all in my bridal party.  So, we worked on a harmony principle rather than a matching principle and when I looked around on my wedding day, I remember thinking, “Wow, all these beautiful fairies!”
What color?
Charcoal, Blizzard, Smoke, and Thistle – Whoa!  I actually remember!

What were you looking for in your bridesmaid dresses?
At first, honestly, I was looking for a waist.  One of the terrible things about so many bridesmaid dresses is that they are waistless and almost designed to make girls look homely, so that the bride stands out.  I specifically wanted my bridesmaids to look as good as they could possibly look.  The first condition for looking good for most women is a defined waist.  The Lynn Lugo dresses were very flattering and in beautiful colors and fabrics, so they were a good fit all around.
How was Stacey/Lindsay/Brooke most helpful?
Flair is wonderful place to be a bride.  Stacey, Lindsay, and Brooke make the place feel warm and exciting.  They are sensitive, flexible, available, and fun!  I went at least four times with different sets of girls, and every time felt like an occasion.  The first time, when I went with my sister and sister-in-law, Stacey actually put on a Lynn Lugo trunk show, so that we could actually get a stronger feel for the dresses.

What did you choose for your bridal gown?
My bridal gown was Carolina Herrera from a couple years ago.  It was the very first dress I tried on the very first time I even looked for a dress.  It was a very good value.  I got it at an amazing sample sale and then I worked with a wonderful seamstress to make it fit me.  Working on the dress was actually a very fun, much less expensive way to fuss over the dress than shopping for it, which took me about an hour.
Tips for brides when selecting their BM dresses?  Bridal Gowns?
Obviously, the overall feeling of your wedding and the degree of formality come first.  Then, I would say toss all other considerations out, and think about what dresses are going to look good on your ladies.  I think the trend towards color theming of weddings is not that exciting.  A great party is not about a color theme.  It’s about energy.  And, you will have a more energetic party if your gals feel good.  Likewise, I am not sure why every girl needs to wear the same dress.  This is a sure-fire way to make any irregularity stand out.  As for the bridal gown, I feel similarly that you should pick a dress that evokes the formality and setting of the occasion, but that also, in the end, you should pick something that just makes you feel like a million bucks.

How was your experience at Flair?
I had a wonderful experience at Flair.  I had had some pretty deathly experiences at places in New York when I finally decided to do the bridesmaid dresses in Boston.  I was so excited to come to Flair and be greeted by warm, experienced, and attentive professionals whose number one concern was my bridesmaids dresses.
Where did you get married??
The Bowery Hotel, New York City

What three adjectives would best describe your wedding?

Urban, inclusive, FUN!

What was your favorite moment at the wedding?

Toughie.  So many.  Definitely high up was the moment all the girls got into their dresses and I just thought, “How beautiful are my friends!!!”

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

Tired but true: try to have fun.  In some ways, the party is everyone’s and the planning is yours.  Ideally, you do this thing only once or twice in your life.  Not many things are like that.  Enjoy!

Where did you go on your honeymoon?

Greece and Italy.  And, we made a honeymoon registry, which every non-billionaire should do.

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 😉

Bridesmaids’ gifts made easy!!

Your Flair consultants really sacrifice for you. We took an hour out of our day yesterday to walk down Newbury Street in search of fab jewelry and gifts for your best girls. It was grueling but we were happy to do it for you .

Our new obsession is Bobbles and Lace at 251 Newbury Street. They have absolutely amazing pieces at even more amazing prices! The jewelry is for the most part current and trendy, but they have classic styles too. We fell in love with their collection of rose gold jewelry; it’s the perfect combination of classic with an interesting twist. Plus, they have gorgeous bags and clutches if you decide to forgo the jewelry route. There’s something for everyone!

BONUS: They also have a great selection of super cute shoes and clothes so you can reward yourself for finding such great gifts for your girls. Perfection!

If you want a more interactive gift for your ladies, take them to the bangle bar at Alex and Ani (115 Newbury Street). The concept is simple: pick a bangle and then add a charm from their wide selection. They make the perfect memory of your day together and of your appreciation for them. The charm/friendship bracelet has gone modern people and you heard it here first (OK, maybe not first…)!

We’re sure your girls will love whatever you give them but if you want to be 100% sure, take our advice and hit up these Newbury Street hot spots. You’ll thank us!

XOXO

Spotlight on Lindsay & Jay! A “Flair-y Tail” Wedding!

What is a “Flair-y Tail” wedding you ask?

Once upon a time on a hot day in July after months and months of planning and thinking about her big day, the manager at Flair finally got married!  Although it was one of the hottest days of the year…..hovering around 90 degrees all day….it was a beautiful clear summer day for Lindsay and Jay to tie the knot, and as a guest at the wedding, it truly was a magical and gorgeous day! Here is what our esteemed manager had to say about her big day! XOXO

What was your inspiration for your wedding?

This is going to sound bad coming from someone in the wedding industry but I really didn’t have a theme or any one thing that inspired the wedding. As I got to each to each item (stationary, cake, dresses, etc) I really just chose what appealed to me most visually and hoped that everything looked great together in the end (which it did!). Personally, I am not a huge fan of theme weddings but every bride is different! One theme that did sort of creep out after we made a few decisions is that most everything was black, white and gray, so we ended up with a very neutral wedding. We really only had pops of color in the pink flowers and some pale pink in the cake. Brides, I encourage you to not get too caught up in a theme. Yes, sailboats are adorable on your personalized cocktail napkins, but you don’t necessarily need them on your cake, men’s ties, etc. This is your one chance to just choose things that you love and make it all about you, so go for it!

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

After months of cutting out wedding gown photos from magazines, I found that all of the ones I loved had a few things in common: mermaid, strapless, ruffles. Turns out, I had a very specific style! I found just that at Kleinfeld in NYC; it was a great experience, though I would have loved the ease of purchasing my gown at Flair!!

I felt a lot of pressure when it came to the bridesmaids’ dresses. First things first, I wanted to make sure my girls loved their dress. Secondly, I work so close to the bridesmaids’ process that I really felt pressure to do something unique. This lead me to my two tone dresses. I am madly in love with them! A big thanks to Lynn Lugo for doing the two tone for me, I highly recommend it to brides looking to set their dresses apart a little.

What did you choose?

I chose the Tate dress by Lynn Lugo; gorgeous! Yes, I went with a trendier style with the one shoulder, but that truly didn’t bother me. It was my favorite and the girls’ favorite so that’s what we went with. Don’t overthink it brides! If you find one that everyone (or most everyone) likes by all means STOP LOOKING and go for it!

What color(s)?

Keeping with the neutral theme that developed, I went with a silver top and a gunmetal skirt. My sister/MOH had a black crystal A.B. Ellie belt to set her apart a little (more like a lot…she had more bling than me…). I love neutrals, it makes it much easier for the girls to rewear (fingers crossed) and you can always add color in the flowers, shoes, etc.

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

1) Don’t overthink it! Brides are constantly asking themselves “Is this too trendy” “Does this go with the table linens?” “What will soandso think?” If you like it, don’t question it, go for it! You don’t want to look back and wish you’d gone another way.

2) When you find a dress you love, stop looking! There are lots of pretty dresses out there so you could torture yourself and keep looking but you’ll just end up stressed and tried.

3) Know from the start that you may not make all of your bridesmaids’ happy. Pretty self-explanatory, but it’s true. If they’re your good friends they’ll wear whatever you want them to. You’re the one that has to look at the photos for forever, so make sure YOU like how it looks first and foremost!

4) Be ready to do some tailoring, every dress needs some. I had some and all of my bridesmaids did too. So, even the “experts” aren’t immune. It’s just a fact of bridal life so get used to it!

When and where was your wedding?

I knew from the start that I wanted a chic, downtown wedding. We were married in St. Cecilia’s Catholic Church in Back Bay with the reception at the Skywalk at the top of the Prudential Center. Great views for our out of town guests!

What was your favorite part of the wedding?

Our first dance! In the last two weeks before the wedding we decided to add 6 dance lessons to our already packed schedule; certifiable but was worth EVERY minute. It was nice to escape and take the lessons together and then wow our guests with an amazing choreographed dance. I will never forget their reactions!

Where did you go on your honeymoon?

We are waiting to honeymoon until the winter. It’s so nice in New England right now but we’ll be glad to escape the snow in a few months! We’re thinking Hawaii or the Atlantis in the Bahamas.

Ode to Moxie!

Pretty shoes are one of the many reasons I am SO glad to be a girl. Seriously, do you ever just look at guys’ shoes and think “yawn?” I know I do. The September issue is out and the verdict is in, it is good to be a girl!

Shoes have a magical way of transforming your entire outfit. The same chunky sweater dress can look casual, daytime chic with a pair of Tory Burch riding boots (which I am currently coveting) and cocktail appropriate with the Sam Edelman “Renzo” studded booties (go to Bloomingdales.com, look them up, thank me later). The same goes for the shoes you choose for your wedding day. We know better than anyone that it’s all about the gown, but your shoes really say something about you too. Are you a classic, petal pink ballerina flat or a trendy, blue Manolo ala Carrie Bradshaw? Personally, I went with sparkly Christian Louboutins and I loved them just as much as my gown (maybe even more when you consider that you actually can wear them again)!

To ensure that you start your wedding shoe love story off right, do yourself a favor and head straight to Moxie on Charles Street. The girls there are super cute and helpful and have a wide variety of styles to suit every bride/bridesmaid. The store itself is adorable and welcoming and the location is ideal for a shopping day with your best girls. When we went into Moxie to do research for this blog I of course parlayed that into shopping for myself. Unfortunately they didn’t happen to have my size in the Tory Burch riding boots or Revas that I wanted. Normally, this is a legitimate reason to spiral but they offered to call me when they got more in. Now that’s service! So, say goodbye to the boring, old ivory wedding shoes of the past and say hello to gold sparkle Kate Spade’s, black petaled Badgley Mischka’s and more!

Our Kim Kardashian Wedding Dress Prediction!

Although we do not have any so-called “royals” here in the good old U.S.A the closest thing we have is the Royal Family of Reality TV…..

THE KARDASHIAN’S!

Kim Kardashian & Kris Humphrey’s will be getting hitched this Saturday……so Lindsay and I put our head together and debated for hours upon hours over the past few weeks and here is what we have come up with!

We know the designer is Vera Wang, a close family friend and we think she will stick with the Mermaid silhouette.  It’s gotten her this far why would she veer off course now! So, we think it is going to be a mix between these two gowns below….and don’t be surprised if you see her in something other than WHITE! (Although we think that would be such a crime)

We are thinking this will be the shape of the dress and possibly the color!

With a train that will W-O-W and a sleek satin bodice!

As for the gaggle of bridesmaids we had a tougher time….we thought she would want to something a little different from Khloe’s wedding, so here is our best guess!

Soft, romantic and flowy!! However we are voting for a grey color!

I guess we will all have to wait and see. But in the meantime let us know what you think Kim and her “dolls” aka bridesmaids will be wearing on the Big Day!!

XOXO

Your fav Flair Dolls!

Check out our prediction from the real “Royal Wedding”!

I’ve been there, learn from me…

Hi pretty brides! I’m sure all of you 2011 brides are in stress central right? I was there approximately 1 month ago and you’ll get through it, I promise. I just got married on July 23 and it truly was the best day of my life. The feeling of having (almost) everyone you love all in one room is so overwhelming (in a good way!) and amazing. There’s nothing like it! So, keep that in mind as you do those last monotonous things. It will all be worth it in the end! I’ve come up with some tips to help you through the end of your planning process.

1)      Don’t sweat the small stuff: I know, it’s much easier said than done but really try to live by this mantra. Practicing what I preach: my bridal gown had little organza flowers on the skirt and people kept stepping on it which pulled some of the flowers off. This is not an excuse to go all Jeckyll and Bride all over said guest(s). My exact quote was “whatever!” Seriously, by the time your day gets here you’ll be so happy that stuff like that just doesn’t seem to matter anymore.

2)      Have a photo plan: The time you have between the ceremony and the reception goes by in warp speed. If you go in without a plan it’s going to pass you by and all you’ll have to show for it are a few cheesy posed shots that no one really likes. Know where you want to go and what groups of people you want photographed. Also, if time allows definitely save time for some photos of just you and your honey. It’s a nice way to relax a little and make it just about the two of you. It is your day, after all!

3)      SLOW DOWN: As anxious as you are to get married, take your walk down the aisle slowly. I sped through mine and it was tough for my photographer to get good photos. Whoops, fail, etc.

4)      Cheers!: Plan ahead and have some bubbly waiting for you and your bridal party after the ceremony. It will loosen them up a little for the photo session and it’s a great excuse to have people toast to you and tell you how fab you are.

5)      Girls night!: Don’t plan ANYTHING to do the night before the wedding (besides the rehearsal/ rehearsal dinner of course). Spend your last single night with your best girls. If you’re anything like me and my friends you’ll end up gabbing and doing those cheesy dance moves that you can’t do in front of your fiance. Well, soon you can because you’ll be married and he’s stuck with you no matter what…
