Best Of: Views & Clicks

Our blog After YES, Before I DO and Everything In Between has become an awesome medium for all of us at The Bridal Party and for all of it's readers/followers/subscribers. And whenever I'm looking over blog stats, my favorite metrics for each post are the views and clicks.  So I decided to look a little deeper and share with you the posts that generated top results:

Check out our latest inspiration board ... boasting a Rose Dust and Lavendar palette, another two of Pantone's chosen fashion colors for Spring 2009. This is the color scheme for the bride that truly wishes to set herself apart from the crowd. Soft, yet striking. And don't forget to add a little chocolate brown here and there!

Don't forget to invite the President of The United States of America to your wedding!

Ask Rashana: Anything But Run-Of-The-Mill

Dear Rashana,
I'm very interested in giving my wedding guests a "different experience." I've been to about 15 weddings in my lifetime and not-surprisingly they were all very, very similar. I want my wedding to be unique and provide our family and friends with something they're not used to. While I'm not a fan of making big changes to our religious ceremony, I am interested in exploring unique options for the reception. What reception formats could you suggest?

The Bridal Party's RU Pink Bride was married yesterday afternoon at the Voorhees Chapel on the campus of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey (which is her, the groom and my alma mater). This ceremony site was founded in 1925 and is often the site of college ceremonies, student assemblies, musical concerts, weddings and other programs by artists, scholars and speakers.  Immediately following the ceremony a reception was held at the Bridegewater Manor and guests were intrigued throughout the day and evening by the beautiful pink and silver palette, a touching hand-fasting ceremony and a 7-piece live band.

Recession Fashion

Per Wikipedia, "the term recession generally describes the reduction of a country's gross domestic product (GDP) for at least two quarters.  The usual dictionary definition is 'a period of reduced economic activity,' a business cycle contraction."  And for some time it's been safe to say we're experiencing a recession.  So what does this mean for you gals getting ready to walk down the aisle, preparing to stand up as a bridesmaid or those just joining in the party?  This could be the time to test a more practical approach.

There were several hurdles to overcome during this event, but that's EXACTLY what we were there for.  All unforeseen snafus were handled discreetly and with grace, thus in the end everything was lovely.  The ceremony was held at the Voorhees Chapel on the campus of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey (which is her, the groom and my alma mater).  The reception was held at the Bridegewater Manor.  And our favorite element was our signature "pink" sweets sideboard (candy buffet), which we surprised the guests with toward the end of the evening.

Notice The Difference

A growing trend among brides and their wedding parties is non-matchy-matchy bridesmaid dresses and bouquets. Some may continue to shy away from this idea, as it can be deemed "nontraditional," but it's a clever way to set your wedding apart from rest. Furthermore, for groups of bridesmaids with varying body types, this idea may come as a godsend! Once a cohesive color palette is chosen, allowing each maid to choose her own dress style and possibly even the flowers for her bouquet ensures everyone is comfortable.

I was first contacted by the groom for this 225 guest affair and really enjoyed working with the couple. First, they exchanged vows with full mass, and then partied the night away at The Imperia in Somerset, New Jersey. We always have a great time at The Imperia and all were pleased. One of the highlights of the night, however, was The Bridal Party's Sweets Sideboard (an automatic inclusion on all of our wedding packages) which featured all purple, lavender, chocolate and champagne colored candies and cupcakes. In lieu of traditional favors, the couple made donations to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, but our candy display still afforded their guests the opportunity to take a few "sweet mementos" home and they were ecstatic!

The Bridal Party's Springtide Soirée Bride was happily married yesterday, TWICE! First at St. Paul's Roman Catholic Church in Princeton, New Jersey and then again at Cairnwood, inside the private estate of 19th Century industrialist John Pitcairn, located in Bryn Athyn, Pennsylvania. This festive celebration featured a great many multi-cultural details that honored both families' traditions and customs in addition to a gorgeously adorned mandap, signature drinks I affectionately named "Love Potion 425" (because of the occasion and the date, 4/25), specially named tables, personalized good-bye candies and a surprise golf-themed cake for the groom.
