Cutest holiday couple.

Is it the holiday spirit, people’s cheery moods, the magic of snowflakes coming down?  Whatever it may be, it makes men (and sometimes women) pop the question… In fact, did you know December is the most popular time of the year for couples to get engaged?   So what do you do after you say YES?
  1. Scream at the top of your lungs!  Ok, fine, you may not want to scream… but call all your loved ones and let them know. Then do a little dance, pop the bubbly… in essence, CELEBRATE!
  2. Set a Date!  I know this sounds a bit rushed, but trust us, setting a date early on will help you organize, set expectations and even save money for the big day.
  3. Start thinking about the type of wedding you want:  traditional, modern, destination, quaint, themed… Once this is decided, you can start browsing through your ideal wedding dress.  And sometimes, knowing what dress you want helps set the tone for the wedding… and honestly, falling in love with your dream dress is our favorite part of the process!
Here are some of our current favorites:

Romantic Monique Lhuillier

Romona Keveza modern gown.

Dramatic, gorgeous Lazaro gown.

Short, flirty wedding dress. Monique Lhuillier

Lovely candle centerpiece.

It is honestly with a heavy heart that we write this entry.  After Friday’s Sandy Hook tragedy writing this post is hard.  However, as we try to make sense of it all, all we can do is cherish and praise the children, teachers, heroes, families and community of Sandy Hook, CT.  They will now forever be in our minds and our hearts. But as we have been told many a time after a tragedy, we need to continue forward, so that we don’t let the evil people win. So to start off the week, here are some of this week’s favorite web and blog goodies that we wanted to share with you.  Hopefully, a little bit of normalcy can help with the healing in our hearts.

Our prayers are with Sandy Hook.  Well said.

A winter wedding.

Valentino: A must see.

Breathtaking headpiece!

We think holiday, and we think sparkle!  And we love sparkle… but we have to admit, we especially love when we can add sparkle to an outfit!  So we couldn’t be more excited with the trunk show currently going on at the store: the Maria Elena accessories collection. Everything from amazing jewelry, to belts, to amazing headpieces.  These pieces are perfect for a glamourous bride…. Or can you imagine being at a New Year’s ball and dazzling your outfit with any of these pieces?  A-ma-zing!

Here are some of our favorites, but if you want to see all the pieces, don’t hesitate to come by the store from now until Dec. 22 where the whole collection will be available.  I hope you guys enjoy it as much as we do… And remember a woman can never Sparkle too much!
