Be Bride Beautiful – The Men

Let’s face it, nothing beats a man looking sharp in a suit or tux at a formal event.  Or, for that matter, what better accessory to a woman in a beautiful gown than a handsome man on her arm?  In a continuation of posting about the amazing Be Bride Beautiful fashion show, we want to pay homage to the gentleman.  Often times, the mens ensemble is overlooked but we want to take a moment to celebrate all the amazing menswear fashion Formals by Antonio provided for the Be Bride Beautiful fashion show.  We love the looks of all the men, both when they escorted the beautiful ladies or when they walked themselves down the runway.  The tuxes and suits were modeled by three fantastic guys who, as you can see, had a lot of fun walking the runway.

Be Bride Beautiful – The Gowns!!

We are fast approaching the start of wedding season!  Of course, we are excited to see all the creative decor and ideas each wedding has to offer but lets face it, we all really want to see what the bride is wearing.

On February 9th, we hosted a fashion show by Mariella Creations called “Be Bride Beautiful” and boy, did we see some amazingly beautiful dresses!  The turnout was wonderful with every seat filled by brides, bridesmaids, MOB’s and MOG’s, and even some grooms came!  There was so much fashion at the show, there is no way we could fit it all in one post so stay tuned for even more amazing fashion.  But for now, enjoy the gorgeousness of Mariella Creations bridal gowns from “Be Bride Beautiful”

Why September?

September is a Wadsworth Mansion staff pick as best month to”Marry at the Mansion”! Why? Three big reasons:
 
Near perfect weather
Delicious “Farm to Table” food
Radiant color
 
 

 

Weather: Ahhh…New England in September….Warm September days and crisper evenings are the reason folks from all over the country flock to New England in September. Here in Connecticut it is still warm enough to enjoy the beach, but cool enough to enjoy long walks in the woods. Weddings at the Mansion are a perfect blend of the best that Summer and Fall have to offer.
Sid and Jason enjoyed a perfect weather for their Sunday afternoon ceremony.
Alessandra and Mario take a stroll down the drive to find an intimate spot for pictures.
Great time of year for cocktails on the patio!

Food: When we think of September in Connecticut we can’t help but think of farmer’s markets and the wonderful bounty of vegetables available to our Caterers. “Farm to Table” are the buzz words that have us thinking of plump ripe tomatoes plucked from the vine just hours before being served as part of a fresh crudité. Not quite ready for Fall? No problem! How does a raw bar sound? 




Color: Have you decided on your color theme yet? What do you  think about Navy Blue? Blush Pink? How about Apple Green? or Bright Yellow? Anything goes in September when you can take advantage of Mother Nature’s inability to make up her mind about the season. You choose the color, you decide!
Pretty, pretty pink.
We love the navy with orange accents!
Our grooms sparkle with their fuschia ties!
And speaking of color, our heirloom hydrangea will create the most beautiful framing of your ceremony and cocktail hour as the blooms begin their transformation from whitest white to dusky pink.

So if you are dreaming of Marrying at the Mansion, dream big, and dream September!
