Wedding Planning in Quarantine – Bridal Salons

We know that wedding planning can be a stressful time, and doubly so if it’s during quarantine. Fortunately, there are amazing people that are there to help. Everyone in the hospitality industry is doing their best to come up with solutions for couples during this time, and they all want to make sure that your special day is the best that it can be.

Bridal salons are no exception to this rule. If you’ve already ordered your dress, or have had to push back fittings, then don’t worry. Bridal salons are preparing to work harder than ever to make sure that your dress is perfect for your special day. Since a few of our couples have asked us about local bridal salons and ordering their dress, we reached out to a few of them to learn their policies and what they’re doing during this time. While they’re all closed for business until May 20, there are a few options for you to start your planning process for your dress, tux, or suit!

This store has a great policy for getting a jumpstart on getting a tux or suit! They’re offering a card for at-home measurements, so that anyone who would like to start the process of renting a tux can do so. All you need to do is reach out to ask for one. You can also browse their wide selection online to see what sort of style you may be interested in.

Stephanie and Jimmy – An Elegant Summer Wedding

Photo by: Derek Halkett Photography

As we spring into the new wedding season, we love reflecting on past weddings and one that stands out is Stephanie and Jimmy’s wedding at the Wadsworth Mansion last June! Their wedding included gorgeous outdoor lighting, a classic car, an outdoor ceremony, a stunning head table, and tons of fun during the reception. Both Stephanie and Jimmy were so excited during their wedding, and their enthusiasm and love for one another made this day something to remember.

One of my favorite parts of their wedding were their introductions. Their bridesmaids and groomsmen each incorporated props and turned the procession into a show for the guests! They were such a great group to work with, and I absolutely loved their sense of fun and being there during their special day.

Now, you can see Stephanie and Jimmy’s wedding for yourself! Shutter and Sound Films put out an absolutely gorgeous film of their wedding day. I love how you can see the flow of their wedding, while also seeing some of the beautiful locations around the mansion!

Featured Wedding: Jason and Nancy 6/1/13

Jason and Nancy 6/1/13

 

Thinking back on Nancy and Jasons wedding, its hard not to smile and get all warm and fuzzy.  There was just so much LOVE on that beautiful June day – and there was so much to love.   First, Nancy and Jason were just about the happiest couple ever.  Everything about this wedding, from the exuberant energy of the bride, groom, and guests, to the brilliant colors Nancy used in her decor, made this one to remember.  Nancy thoughtfully included touches of her heritage from Ghana with the beautiful bridesmaid dresses and many of the guests arrived in traditional Ghanaian dress.  Do you want to see a colorful spring wedding at the Wadsworth Mansion?  This one takes the cake.  Beautifully photographed by Joshua Dwain Photography, coordinated by Galas Inc., and catered by Gourmet Galley, the pictures really say it all.

Congratulations to Nancy and Jason!  It was a pleasure hosting your wedding at the mansion and we wish you all the best!

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.
