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.

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...Read More

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.

Have you registered for anything unique? Would you register for a new...Read More
