Only The Engagement Party?! Can’t Wait For The Wedding!
News from ChicagoNow:

Once in a while we have a special client who finds us so early on in the wedding planning process that we have the privilege of not only planning their Chicago wedding, but their Chicago engagement party as well.  Once in a while we have a client so interested in design, so eager to surprise their guests, so ready to take risks, and so unique that we have the opportunity to plan something really special. An engagement party is the the best place to take risks and throw a party no one will forget. There are no engagement party rules or expectations and the possibilities are endless. How fun to impress your guests and have them even more excited to see how you can possibly top it for your actual wedding day!

End of the party for Priscilla of Boston

End of the party for Priscilla of Boston
News from Boston Globe:

Priscilla of Boston, the high-end bridal boutique that got its start on Newbury Street in 1945 and shot to prominence after making Grace Kelly’s wedding gown, is closing.

Its parent company, David’s Bridal, announced yesterday that it will shutter the store’s 19 national locations, including its store on Boylston Street, on Dec. 31. A corporate office in Charlestown will also be closed.

A David’s Bridal spokesman said the stores are being shut so the company can invest more resources into its 307 David’s Bridal stores.

“At the end of the day, the decision is really based on looking at our resources and capital investments and looking to invest in Priscilla’s sister division, David’s Bridal,’’ said Brian Beitler, chief marketing officer for David’s Brida…………… continues on Boston Globe

Party and Wedding Faire at the Sheraton
News from The Sacramento Press:

Weddings take a long time to plan, organize and prepare. Flowers, invitations, photographers, cakes, caterers, limos, carriages, ministers, wedding planners; so many things go into a wedding. As soon as the bride and groom become engaged and set a date, the clock starts ticking, and although a wedding date is planned well in advance, the date always arrives quickly.

A Party and Wedding Faire took place at the Sheraton Grand Hotel on 1230 J Street this past Sunday. Organized by Julia Costanza of Trade Secrets, the event brought together many wedding day vendors and planners under one roof for those seeking help with planning their special date.

This Star Got It Wrong With a Lavender Wedding Dress
News from The Stir:

There was another wedding this weekend. This is crazy! Everyone’s gettin’ hitched. This time it was Lost in Translation director Sofia Coppola and hottie Phoenix frontman Thomas Mars. It’s a match made in indie heaven!

The wedding itself sounded ridiculously, fantastically, tragically beautiful. I would actually go as far as to say it was “my dream wedding” — and I’ve never uttered those words before. It was an intimate 80-person affair on the Coppola family’s Palazzo Margherita in Bernalda, Italy, where guests dined on “cheeses, figs, salads, pasta, fish, and pork, washed down with wine from the family’s farm.” Sigh. Heaven.

The bride’s dress, though? That’s another story.

Kim Kardashian First Look Vera Wang Wedding Dress (photos!)
News from TheImproper.com:

Kim Kardashian turned to Vera Wang for her wedding dress and surprised guests with a white strapless gown, even though she’s been married before. Sisters Khloe and Kourtney wore similar dresses.

Kim wisely ordered her wedding party and all of her guests to wear white or black which added a theme to the wedding and covered up the fact that once-married women shouldn’t wear white.

Beyond that, Kim looked stunning in the fishtail skirt dress. Husband Kris Humphries wore a white jacket and white bow tie with black trousers. It was his first marriage.

Petra Ecclestone Makes Kim Kardashian’s Wedding Look Cheap
News from The Stir:

Remember how shocked we were to find out how much Kim Kardashian paid for her wedding dresses? It seemed outrageously excessive at the time, but compared to British heiress Petra Ecclestone, Kim is looking downright thrifty.

Reports said the cost of Kim’s three Vera Wang dresses plus one for her mom, one for Kris’s mom, and the four for her bridesmaids was somewhere between $ 135,000 – $ 150,000. That’s the price of a home in some parts, but she is Kim Kardashian, so it wasn’t exactly unexpected. What is unexpected is how much (MUCH!) more Ecclestone’s dress — also by Vera Wang — cost when she wed businessman James Stunt this weekend.

Just the one single dress cost … $ 130,000. Yes, $ 130K, for one dress. Kim looks likes a major budget f…………… continues on The Stir

Brides-to-be alter plans because of Irene

Brides-to-be alter plans because of Irene
News from The Journal News | LoHud.com:

Planning for a possible hurricane was not on Adeola Osobu’s to-do list for her Sunday nuptials.

“We knew it was going to be raining, but we didn’t know it was going to be a hurricane,” the 36-year-old from Mount Vernon resident said Friday. “It was a bit of a surprise.”

In front of guests who came from as far as Nigeria and England, Osobu was supposed to get married Sunday afternoon at St. James the Less in Scarsdale and celebrate at Crabtree’s Kittle House in Chappaqua.

Hurricane Irene is expected to scream through the region during that time, so she is now planning to wed Monday afternoon.

“And worst case if we have to move our wedding (date) entirely, that’s fine,” she said. “We will still be going on our honeymoon as scheduled — we may get to do the honeymoon before the wedding. I just want my family and friends to be safe and be OK. That’s the most important.”

Kristine Mallari, event manager at the Kittle House, said that if Osobu is worried a…………… continues on The Journal News | LoHud.com
