Say ‘I do’ to high tea with wedding planning
News from STLtoday.com:
It’s time to plan that glorious, wonderful wedding with the Best of the Best. High Tea at The Ritz-Carlton of St. Louis is from noon to 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 24.
Reservations are advised because seating is limited in the elegant surroundings. Once they are made, it is on your calendar, too, to spend quality time with the region’s bset bridal providers. The event is sponsored by St. Louis’ Best Bridal.
Brides and their guests will visit select purveyors of wedding and reception sites, boutique fashions and tuxedos, luxurious flowers, luminous lighting, toe-tapping and romantic music and other exciting details that reliably provide the setting and capture the essence of their special event, while the bride, groom and parents enjoy that special day as they envision. The best outcome follows reliable planning with specialists who connect with the special couple and their unique vision.
Seating for everyone is at tables in the Grand Ballroom for The Ritz’s gracious serving of tea with petits fours, tea breads, miniature sandwiches and fruit tartlets. Then it’s time to watch the runway show with gowns brought from New York.
Brides-to-be can continue to visit with providers and also relax in the aura of the stylishly decorated runway. Tables prepared by local florists provide ideas for four seasons of delightful and unique bridal details.

In Danielle Steel's forty-eighth bestselling novel, a Hollywood wedding sets the scene for a vivid portrayal of a prominent family whose hopes and fears are as real as our own.
Simon Steinberg and Blaire Scott are among the most respected couples in Hollywood. Simon, a major movie producer, and Blaire, an award-winning television writer, have defied the Hollywood cliches, keeping their marriage together for decades. Their three children—aspiring teenage model Samantha, pre-med student Scott, and entertainment lawyer Allegra—are successful and happy but must face the challenges we fear for our own children as well.
As an attorney for the stars, twenty-nine-year-old Allegra Steinberg is used to handholding her celebrity clients through their tangled lives and loves, negotiating major movie deals, and fielding phone calls at all hours of the day and night. But with a career that consumes so much of her time, Allegra has little time for a private life. Until a chance encounter with a New York writer turns Allegra's life upside down. And suddenly, she finds herself planning a wedding at her parents' Bel Air home.
As preparations begin for a September ceremony, the chaos of last-minute arrangements, surprise announcements, and ever-increasing anxiety brings out both the best and the worst in everyone. But as couples in each generation of the Steinberg family struggle with broken vows and new hopes, the real meaning of Allegra's wedding emerges. For the bride, the ceremony is a bridge between her past and her future. For her parents, it is a reminder of the bond that holds them all together. And for both families, it is an opportunity for reconciliation, forgiveness, and new hope for the future, as weddings often are for us all.
In a compelling portrait of real people in an unreal world, Danielle Steel uses Hollywood as a backdrop to reveal the dreams, the fears, and the expectations of a ceremony that unites us all—f…
