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 one of our favorite brides……Melanie!

We are asking our favorite brides to share their wedding planning experiences with us!
One of our favorite brides, Melanie, was married last October.  A classic and elegant affair, Melanie wore Coren Moore’s Francie Bridal Gown with lace overlay and an Almond Sash.   
   Her bridesmaids wore Dessy’s adorable Style 2750 in Navy.  The men wore matching Almond ties by Coren Moore.
How was your bridal shopping experience at Flair?    
I went into Flair looking for bridesmaid dresses and was surprised to see that you carried bridal.  I had extra time during my appointment and took at look at your collection of bridal gowns.  There was very little pressure to look and to buy – I just fell into it and then found my dress, Coren Moore’s Francie with the lace overlay.  

Did you have an idea of what type of bridesmaid dress you wanted for your girls?  
 I wanted something that wasn’t strapless, that was lightweight and that would look great on everyone.  The Dessy dress that I found met that criteria, it had a higher neck, and I just knew it would look great on my girls.  It fit their personalities, their styles and my wedding. 

Tell me about your experience at Flair.  
 I had a great connection with the store.  It was easy to find things that I liked.  It was a manageable selection of bridesmaid dresses.  I didn’t feel overwhelmed with choices.  I was very impressed by the service.  Lindsay was quick to respond to all of my questions.  When I picked up our bridesmaid dresses, she was super organized.  All the dresses had each bridesmaids name on it.  Lindsay was so efficient, she was great!  I felt very confident every step of the way. 
Your bridal selection is right on the spot with the quality, price and value of the bridal gown.  Your gowns were truly under $2500, and I appreciated that I got such a quality gown at an affordable price.
Any tips for brides when looking for their bridal gown and bridesmaid dresses?  
  •  Definitely do your research.  Get an idea of the basics – whether or not you want a short or long bridesmaid dress, type of fabric and color scheme.  
  • Be open – listen to the consultant’s ideas.  This is for the most part a bride’s first time – let the consultant guide you.  
  • Make sure to have realistic expectations – if nothing isn’t exactly what you want, be flexible and willing to try something new.    
  • Take along 1 Bridesmaid that way you do not get conflicting opinions and it makes the process less stressful. 
Lastly, planning a wedding is stressful and super crazy but everything will turn out.  Stay open and trust the people who are helping you!
 We love hearing about your experience at Flair and would love to put the SPOTLIGHT on you and your big day!
