Wedding Gown Styles and Randy Fenoli at Robinson’s Bridal

Posted by on Feb 7, 2012 in Blog

Ball gown, A-Line, Mermaid, Fit and Flare….. These are just a few of the wedding gown styles available for your selection. What are they and why chose one over the other? We’ll give you a little information today, and then come visit us this weekend while Randy Fenoli of “Say Yes to The Dress” is in store and let him help you decide which style is best for your special day! Ball Gown This is the dress of fairy tales; it has a fitted bodice and a full skirt. The necklines and dress length can vary and the gowns can be made of a variety of fabrics. This gown can even be made of a separate top and skirt and be made more full with the use of crinolines. Sheath These dresses are cut close to the shape of and follow the lines of the body. Many times these dresses are cut on the bias, allowing the fabric to really embrace the curves. Sheath dresses can have a modern feel to them and are very contoured. Different fabrics can be used, but the softer the fabric the better the drape. A Line This gown is fitted at the bodice and flows out in an A Shape from the waist to the hemline. The A Line can have a variety of necklines and be constructed using a variety of fabrics. It is classic a true classic and can change appearances based on the fullness of the skirt and the materials used. Fit and Flare Mermaid and Trumpet These dresses are fitted through the waist and then flare out at or around the knee. These dresses emphasize the curves of a woman’s figure and are are sophisticated in design. Many fabrics can be used and the necklines can vary. Waistlines There are three main waistlines, natural, empire, and drop waist. The empire waist begins just below the bust, the natural waist is at the belly button and the drop waist is around the hip level. Each one can dramatically transform the look of a gown and highlight different features. We hope this helps you find your gown and we look forward...

Friendsgiving With the Robnson’s Bridal Family

Friendsgiving With the Robnson’s Bridal Family

Posted by on Dec 15, 2011 in Blog

Last year all the girls – the lovely ladies who work at our salon – decided to get together the Sunday after Thanksgiving and have our version Thanksgiving. It was enjoyed so much we decided to make it an annual event. We even gave it a special name, Friendsgiving. This year’s Friendsgiving was eagerly awaited. The menu on the Break Room door rivaled that of many banquets. Excitement reached a fever pitch when we decided to have the “Ugliest Holiday Sweater Contest.” Well, that event is a story for another day. Our salon has been honored this year, as in years past, with many great accolades and awards. Sitting quietly with Allen observing the girls laughing, dancing, embracing one another, and sharing family moments was equally and deeply rewarding. We have been blessed for many years with outstanding staff members, and each time we feel we could not hope for better, along came another fabulous individual to the family. Moments like this truly make life worth living. That is what we do every day, help to make joyous memories for everyone we are privileged to meet. While all the pomp and circumstance in planning such a wonderful event as a wedding takes an exciting life of its own, it will always be those quiet stolen moments when one looks around to see those they deeply care about sharing and creating beautiful life long memories. Here is our personal wish for a Happy Holiday Season and encouraging all to have their very own Friendsgiving any time of the...

Expanding Registry Options

Posted by on Dec 5, 2011 in Blog

This morning’s Washington Business Journal is reporting that Bozzuto homes is now offering a Bridal Registry. Engaged couples can add funds or request that funds be added toward the purchase of a new home and Bozzuto will match up to $15,000. There are other unique Bridal Registries available these days as well. You can register for your honeymoon or even register for stocks and mutual funds. And with superstores like Target, even with a more traditional registery, you can stray from the norm. There’s nothing to prevent brides and grooms from registering for everything from iPads and computers to clothes, shoes, and accessories. It used to be that registries were for china, crystal and silver, but over the years it’s expanded to include pretty much anything you want. What do you think about this change? Have you registered for anything unique? Would you register for a new...

An Interview with Anne Sachs of Artful Weddings By Sachs Photography

An Interview with Anne Sachs of Artful Weddings By Sachs Photography

Posted by on Oct 3, 2011 in Blog

Anne Sachs is a well known wedding photographer from Artful Weddings by Sachs Photography, and we love her work. Both she and her husband have been photographing weddings since 1997. Before that her husband was a commercial photographer in New York. She was kind enough to answer some questions about her process and what draws her to wedding photography. First and forefost we wanted to know what drew them to weddings. Anne says: We absolutely love capturing interesting, artistic images. Both Joe and I have backgrounds in the arts, having taken classes in oils and drawing; but photography gives one an opportunity to create in a very fluid and immediate way. Weddings give us a tremendous amount to work with – interesting, beautiful people; dressed in the most gorgeous gowns and tuxedos; at locations that are beautiful. Plus it’s the happiest day of someone’s life. There is just so much emotion, joy and love that you could document forever Since they’ve been photographing weddings in the area for so long, naturally, they have some favorite spots around town: the Peabody Library, Walters Art Museum and the Engineer’s Club. She says that the combination of gorgeous architecture, along with beautiful Mount Vernon Park, makes capturing beautiful images a no brainer. And as luck would have it, the Fall is her favorite time of year in which to work because of the crisp air, bright colors and amazing natural light. There are many factors in a “great” wedding photo, not the least of which is the photographer’s skill with a camera. However, some other factors that play into it, include the eye of the photographer in finding and capturing just the right moment in just the right place and now days, thanks to digital photography, the skill of the photographer in the editing room. Anne says that when capturing images they look for “locations and backgrounds that convey the “scene” i.e. if we’re photographing an outdoor wedding near the water, we look for a great spot that shows off the water location. We are also looking for interesting backgrounds – brick or stone walls; a fence that the eye can follow...
