First Dance Fridays

Posted by on Mar 28, 2014 in Blog

Welcome to First Dance Fridays where we will try to provide you with one new first dance option each week. Our goal is to provide you with unexpected new options, or to make a case for the classics that seem at times overplayed. So let’s start things off with a newer less-expected song. Best Day of My Life – American Authors This is not the necessarily the song for a black tie wedding in a historic marble ballroom, but it is the song for the couple that wants to have fun. And that’s what a first dance should be above all else. Fun. It isn’t a romantic slow dance song, but American Authors offer the newlyweds the chance to revel, to celebrate, to show not just the depth of their love, but also the sheer joy of it. It doesn’t matter if they can or can’t dance. It doesn’t matter if they look coordinated or off-beat.  A first dance like this says that love can’t be contained, and you just gotta dance. So if you just want to dance and have fun and have the best day of your life, give this one a try....

Dress of the Week from Reem Acra

Posted by on Mar 24, 2014 in Blog

This beaded chiffon Reem Acra gown is known as Goddess and it’s easy to see why.  It’s ethereal. Heavenly. Breathtaking. Romantic. The list goes on and on. It is instantly striking with its simple silhouette balanced by the drama of the beaded illusion neckline.  The intricacy of the pattern and the attention to detail in the back makes it a gown that demands to be noticed. It lends itself easily to many varieties of venues, tones and tastes. And it is here just waiting for you to bring it to...

  On October 11, 2013 at Prallsville Mill in Stockton, New Jersey Bridget Jennings and Matthew Fox were married in a beautiful ceremony that captured the spirit of their love and their personalities. We wish we could attend every wedding, but since we can’t, we are so glad that Bridget took the time to sit down and give us all the details of her happy day. How did you and your fiance meet? Matt and I met in Philadelphia, PA sharing mutual social circles and sideways glances. How long have you been together? April 4th will be our 5 year anniversary! How did you choose your wedding dress? I was shopping with a friend and really wanted to try on a strapless tea-length dress by Matthew Christopher. It just so happened that there was a Matthew Christopher trunk show that weekend and the designer himself put me in the dress I ultimately decided on. It was an amazing experience, and the dress fit every aspect of my personality. What was your favorite thing about planning a wedding? My favorite thing about planning a wedding was, as strange as this sounds, focusing on the details. At first it was extremely overwhelming to think of all the little things that needed to get, done but I loved seeing everything come together the day of the wedding.  Your least favorite? My least favorite was doing the seating arrangements and deciding who was going to be invited. We wanted to keep it relatively small, but Matt and I are the first to be married out of both families and so many people wanted to celebrate with us. In the end I was happy with the amount of people we invited. We were surrounded by friends and family who love us very much. What made your wedding unique? My parents are extremely talented people and they wanted to have a wedding that was true to our personalities. They crafted banners that were screen printed with our cartoon faces. We decided to forgo the traditional wedding party and just had Matt’s brothers (and my brother) stand with him, and I had a Maid of Honor...

National Cookie Day

National Cookie Day

Posted by on Dec 4, 2013 in Blog

Today is National Cookie Day, and it is the perfect day to eat something sweet and do something sweet, too. That’s why for the second year in a row the staff at Betsy Robinson’s got together for a cookie swap. Each participant baked up a few dozen of their best cookies and brought them in to share. The result was nearly 700 cookies in more than a dozen sumptuous varieties: chocolate chip, oatmeal, double chocolate chip, red velvet, lemon and on and on. But even better than the cookies was the $1 donation made by Glad for every cookie baked. The proceeds benefit pediatric cancer research and treatment, and it was so great to be a part of the fundraiser. As we begin the holiday season we wish everyone happy baking, and encourage them to host a cookie swap of their...

On September 7th Kelly Sample and John Newby were married at the Floral Showhouse in Niagara Falls, Canada. Surrounded by friends and family and the majesty of the falls these two had the wedding of their dreams. We couldn’t be happier for the couple, and we are grateful to get the inside scoop on their big day along with some sneak peek pictures from photographer Joseph Vetrone. How did you and your fiance meet? We met through mutual friends. We were immediately inseparable. He demanded dinner, and that was it. What made you pick your wedding gown? After being engaged for 3 days, my fiancé came home with a few bridal magazines. I turned to the dress, and there was no turning back. To this day, I haven’t seen a dress I love like mine. You got to meet the designer of your dress, Matthew Christopher, right? How did that feel? I felt like a queen, like the only bride in the store when I first walked in. I tried on other dresses first, and then couldn’t wait to try on my dress. I knew it was the one, no question. Matthew called the shop to talk to me, and it made the experience completely surreal. After reading about him, and envying his work, talking to him, and buying his dress felt like a dream come true. Describe your wedding in 5 words. Love. Surreal. Majestic. Fairytale. Perfect. What was the best part of your wedding? When I saw my groom see me- that’s why it was so important to look and feel my best. I got the reaction every bride dreams of. What’s the best piece of advice you got that you would like to pass along? The day will fly. Your head will spin. Try to enjoy the process, and realize that the most important thing is marrying your soul mate. At the end of the day, if that is a success, then so is your wedding. That is all that will matter to you, to him, and to all your...

Something for Pet Lovers

Something for Pet Lovers

Posted by on Oct 18, 2013 in Blog

Weddings are great ways to honor the people who are most important to the couple getting married. Who will walk the bride down the aisle? Who gets a special mention in the program? Who gets a seat of honor in the front row? For most people close friends, siblings, parents and grandparents occupy these positions, but for a couple on the less traditional side their pets make the perfect people. Pets play just as much a role in the cultivation of a relationship as the two people involved. In fact, many couples form a sort of family with themselves and their pets long before they are even married. Why not then give that pet, that member of the family a position of honor at the wedding? We love the trend of including pets and there are so many ways to do it. They can be in the engagement photos, they can hold a sign with the wedding date for the save the dates, they can carry the ring down the aisle, they can greet guests as they make their way into the reception, or they can pose with guests for candid photographs. So have fun with your big day and include the people and animals most important to you. Just be sure to clear the furry friends with your venue!...
