 Depending on your details you can substitute traditional wedding dresses with patterned Lilly dresses. I will caution you. Lilly is not a cheap brand. But you get what you pay for, and your bridesmaids… providing they like to pop their collar as much as you do…. will thank you for opting for a dress they WILL actually wear again. If you’re feeling extra sweet offer to pay for your bridesmaid dresses as a thank you for agreeing to make you their priority for the next 8 – 10 months. 🙂

AND… Lilly has a great part of their online shop called “The Little White Dress” which might be a perfect bridal outfit change for a more casual wedding, a rehearsal dinner or an out fit to leave your giant party in. People still do that right? A fun new take on the “honeymoon suit.” Or keep with your own theme and don your own pink and green ensemble fit for traveling to someplace exotic, warm and honey-mooney.

You can always opt for something a little bit more conservative and go with solid colored bridesmaid dresses from David’s Bridal in shades of pink or green with alternating colored flowers. Lime green dresses with bright pink flowers are beautiful! And a pale pink dress with a bouquets of green and white works too! Plus it’s a little less expensive for your ladies in waiting. You can always incorporate the patterned look with “Little Lilly” for your flower girls. They have adorable children’s dresses that are perfect for a preppy wedding.

I’m a big fan of the out of town bachelorette weekend. I’m a bigger fan of brides saying thanks to their bridesmaids as much as possible. Do you really have any idea how much money we are spending on you?? A lot. 

To say thank you, fill a monogrammed (obviously) bag from The Palm Gifts with adorable preppy treats like, flip flops from J.Crew or these adorable pink and green checked ones from The Palm Gifts, Notecards from Lilly Pulitzer, and maybe even a silver monogrammed ring or preppy bachelorette coozies from Preppy Monogrammed Gifts. Also just a quick note about J.Crew… if you still have your student discount lying around you can get 15% off in-store (varies) purchases. Definitely worth using.

Alright ladies listen up. 

Grooms can go one of three ways right?

1. Groomzilla: They rival the bride for total control on every friggin’ detail from start to finish

2. Helpful but totally bored: They’ll help you but truthfully don’t really care what shade of pink ribbon you tie on the program

3. Non-existent: Bad news Bears.

This one’s for the boys. So spin them, take off the blind fold and point them toward the computer for some lessons in Weddings 101.

It won’t hurt I promise. There’s much to learn little bird. 

First up…

The Man Registry

Seriously. Are you over the name yet? How great is this?  This site is so great. It’s a complete guide to all things groom. You can sign up and create your own MAN-REGISTRY. (Yes capital letters are necessary) and you can send the registry to guests so that they can look at your MAN-REGISTRY. There’s a Groom 101 area where your groom and his guys can plan and execute successful bachelor parties- with o without strippers- there is a pretty great list of Extreme Bachelor Party Ideas including sky diving, wedding speech survival tactics, and a whole section on how to prank the groom… ladies you might want to send that one out via e-mail to the groomsmen asap. 

AND there’s a blog. I love the blog. I follow these guys on Twitter. They’re great. Lots of really fun info to check-out for everyone.

It’s been featured on major media outlets too, which is always a sign of legitimacy right? Wait…even if it’s Fox?  I digress. GroomsGroove.com has loads of articles on tons of relevant topics that will answer his questions before he starts firing them at you.

*Remember: Happy Grooms make Happy Brides…

I hope you were all a little bit more lucky in life and love today! After all everyone really is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day. Make those little green leprechauns hiding in the shadows send some of that luck your way! In honor of my Irish half here are some of my favorite green Etsy items for you brides out there (and I personally know at least one) incorporating lucky and lovely shades of green into your wedding world! Green Weddings! So fun!

A word of caution: Don’t incorporate ALL of these things into your green wedding world. Often…less is more.

This is adorable from Etsy Seller LuckeyU. You can absolutely do this on your own too. A little spanish moss, branch basket and ribbon (local craft store) and you have your very own DIY ring pillow. OR you could just invest in this fabulous one.

No secret I love me some pink and green. But green works well on its own with weddings because it matches all your flowers- more or less- and it’s almost a “neutral” color when used sparingly as an accent color with other neutrals. These super cute polka dot ties from Etsy seller Me and Matilda, would be great with a khaki colored suit. Very casual, very backyard, very good near water. Love them!

While monogramming is often left to the popped collar, prepster brigade I have to say, for bridesmaid gifts, and for wedding gifts, it’s kind of a nice thing to do. Not that the person you’re gifting is going to forget their own initials, but it’s just a little bit more fun than boring old registry gifts.  You can still buy them what they want on their registry, just add something personalized to make it more personal

Plus, monogrammed “stuff” turns into a great “possession to pass down”. Didn’t you know your unborn children are actually interested in crystal goblets with scripted initials on them.  They are.

Here are some of my favorite monogrammed swag for bridesmaids, guests and the bride-and groom-to- be.

  $14.99 Palm Gifts

I LOVE these coozies. First of all, you can monogram them and second of all you can pick your fabric. How great is that!? They’re so cute! Include them in welcome baskets, bridesmaid bags or hand them out at a casual BBQ style rehearsal dinner for guests to use.   They also make great shower and bachelorette party favors!  These are $14.00 from Palm Gifts.

 

 $18.00 Palm Gifts

So I don’t know how many people still use sleep masks. It’s kind of an indulgence that disappeared in the 80’s, but something tells me there’s a market… particularly on the Upper East side, but maybe… just maybe… it’s one of those things you would never be caught dead buying for yourself… but wouldn’t mind getting from someone else. These are adorable, and again you can personalize the fabric and the script. They would go perfectly in a bridesmaid swag bag for a bachelorette getaway, or in welcome baskets for guests for a small intimate wedding.  They are $18 from Palm Gifts.

 

 $20.00 at Palm Gifts

$10-$15 at Williams Sonoma

These are super cute and very practical. Not that bottles of wine should be left unfinished, but in case they ever are, these wooden wine-stoppers from The Palm Gifts, and sterling silver ones from Williams Sonom, with personalized initials are the perfect way to save some for later. pair them with stemless wine glasses and a corkscrew as a shower gift. They also make great bridesmaid gifts with a nice bottle of wine and a pair of monogrammed glasses. (See below)

 

 $16 for a Box of 10 Cards at The Palm Gifts

These are perfect to give as a bridesmaid gift with a beautiful pen, or stationary set. They are also a really great shower gift for the bride-to-be. Have her new initials monogrammed on the note cards and give them with a beautiful photo album, or desk set.

 $34 at The Palm Gifts

 $99 at Williams Sonoma

Perfect for the culinary loves in your life. Monogrammed cutting board would make a great shower gift for a bride-to-be along with a nice set of monogrammed knives from Williams- Sonoma, an adorable monogrammed apron and a fabulous cook book. 

 

 $54 for a Set of 4 at Williams-Sonoma 

$38 for a set of 2 from Williams-Sonoma

 

 $30- $85 Silver Plated Jewelry Box from Pottery Barn

This is a great bridesmaid gift. Put matching necklaces or earrings to be worn the day of the wedding inside and hand these beautiful silver boxes out at the rehearsal dinner. Your bridesmaids will thank you.


For the Guys:

 $34.00 Monogrammed Golf Balls at Red Envelope

For the groomsman who loves to golf, these monogrammed golf balls from Red Envelope are a great gift, especially when they’re paired with silver or brass finished golf club links, also from Red Envelope.

 $40 – $60 at Red Envelope  $40-$60 at Red Envelope

 

 Special- $48- $58 at Red Envelope

This nickel-plated, monogrammed humidor is perfect for groomsmen who like to light up from time to time. Cedar lined, this stogie home is perfect storage for a couple of cubans… Make it a really nice gift and add the cigars before you give them the box.

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Two of my favorite people got married in what proved to be one of the most beautiful and all around perfect weddings I’ve ever been a part of on the coast of Maine a few weeks ago.    The weather was incredible, the bride was stunning and the priest managed to make it through the ceremony with only one reference to global warming. Killer right?

 

Fun, would be an understatement and I intend to tell you all of the reasons why. There was lots of dancing, (some was even choreographed) a teeny tiny bit of drinking of adult beverages, and even a little country music for the rednecks in the bridal party.  But really, as a virgin bridesmaid this was one of the best experiences of my life. My cherry got popped, and I loved every minute of it.

The setting was incredible on a golf course overlooking the coast of Maine, with perfect, perfect weather.  The weekend was full of delicious food from the Lobster and Duck served at the rehearsal dinner to the seafood hors d’oeuvres and entrees at a formal sit down dinner.

Jenn is pretty organized…she was yelling orders over the top of her laptop to a very bewildered priest, who, I’m sure it’s safe to say, hadn’t given a mass in the last ten years. At least.  He was kind of a nightmare, but I’ll be honest it made for a really animated mass, and we’re already looking back laughing, so it wasn’t that terrible. So they lit the unity candle after everything was over… ehhhhh god doesn’t judge right?

 

The rehearsal dinner was at a beautiful Inn/Restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating which worked out perfectly. Jenn handed out personalized itineraries to the out of town bridal party telling them exactly what time to be where and what to be wearing when you got there. Not as crazy “bridezilla” as it sounds. Trust me. It was hilarious, and really truly helpful. 

 

The day of the wedding, the bridesmaids were shuttled in shifts back and forth to the hair salon and the makeup place while the groomsmen slept off the post rehearsal dinner antics. (There’s a small chance golfing was involved the morning of the wedding… but I’m pretty sure there wasn’t a whole lot of activity happening on that front.) The limo was a really nice touch and something that was completely unexpected. Who doesn’t like champagne at 10 am?


 We carried sunflowers, which went beautifully with our dresses, and Jenn carried a small bouquet of white roses. It was a  gorgeous summer wedding set against some of the most  magnificent scenery I have ever seen.

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

  

They did a Sunflower Chardonnay from Pindar Vineyards for a favor and tall Sunflower centerpieces at tables which were named after the people sitting at them.   Jenn, Jason,the maid of honor and two best men sat at the “VIP table”, college friends sat at a table named after their freshman dorm, and some of the Jason’s Northeastern teammates sat at tables named after college bars in Boston.

          

 

As always… I give you my list of reasons why this wedding rocked my world and made it to the top of my list as one of the best, most perfect, and most memorable weddings I’ve ever attended.

  1. Seeing people you haven’t seen in a long time (3 years) is kind of awesome.
  2. Guys, especially good looking ones, who enjoy to dance are pretty darn great to have around at a wedding.
  3. A beautiful bride calms any grooms nerves.
  4. Dancing around a beer bottle in the center of the dance floor, yields incredibly inappropriate behavior but is so entertaining it should probably be mandatory at every wedding you attend.
  5. Hockey guys can drink more than baseball guys… yeah I’m sayin’ it… and might be a little bit more fun… just a little though.
  6. Kicking your new husband around the dance floor…literally… to the tune of “Maneater” is a great way to break in the in-laws, AND become famous on You Tube.
  7. Someone falling is funny. Someone losing half of their pants mid-split on the dance floor is HILARIOUS and unforgettably amazing.
  8. A midnight romp across a golf course and down a rock wall after two or twenty cocktails is a great way to break your face, OR catch up with friends.
  9. Jews aren’t the only ones who get to lift people up in chairs at weddings.
  10. Wine bottles can be opened and enjoyed without a corkscrew. For further information see Keni Gibson.
  11. Suspenders can do much more than hold up pants.
  12. Bribing bartenders is a great way to get a round of shots.
  13. Having a slideshow is a great way to relive the good old days, show guests the wonderful times you spent together and embarrass the hell out of your bridal party.
  14. Vodka AND tonic dry magically on satin
  15. Watching two people, who you’ve only known together, finally get married is a wonderful thing to be a part of.

              

 

 

That’s what I told my friend Stephanie who married my friend George this past weekend at one of the most wonderful, beautiful, loving, perfect Carolina weddings I have ever witnessed.

This post is going to be a bit more unconventional, in that I’m going to let you all in on a more personal part of my world instead of critiquing and revealing the planning and the details. There’s a little bit of that here, but mostly it’s just me saying how happy I am that I was able to travel to North Carolina to see two of my favorite people get married with the most important people in their lives in attendance.

To be honest, I have never really been around in the days leading up to a wedding unless I was working or planning it. You’re not nearly as emotionally invested as you are when it’s your best friends trying to make everything perfect in time for the rehearsal dinner. I have to say it was a very stressful and chaotic experience for everyone involved (Not me, I just showed up and observed the chaos… by that time there was nothing left for me to do but watch). But people don’t do things like that if they don’t love you, and these two had a whole lot of love in the air and a whole lot of help too.

I don’t know anyone else in the world who could have dealt with the last minute stress that developed along with some very uncooperative weather as well. Plus, as long as I have known George, being prompt has never really been his strong suite. But there were other factors, and they dealt with everything so calmly that it made my head start to spin a little.

The reason this was one of the most wonderful weddings I’ve ever been to because it was so authentic and wonderful. These two have been dating for something over 6 years now. Steph you can correct me if I’m wrong… because to me it seems like you have always been together.

The bridal luncheon was so sweet, and very new for me- a southern soul stuck in a Yankee upbringing. I had never been to a bridal luncheon- different from the shower and bachelorette- where the bride thanks all those women close to her who helped in planning and participating in the wedding day. We had the beautiful back courtyard at Toast Cafe in Davidson, NC to ourselves where we laughed and cried and exchanged gifts before getting back to the craziness of the day. I think it was a much needed break for everyone.

Later that night a rehearsal dinner was given at the Harbor Club in Davidson, NC which was wonderful and full of laughter, reminiscing and speech after speech from friends and family toasting the bride and groom-to-be. I am a crier. I’m not afraid to say it, and I was waterworks that night, all night. Of course it didn’t help that a friend of ours who lives in Japan flew in and surprised the groom. Stephanie and a few others knew all about it, but I was conveniently kept in the dark, and therefore proceeded to cry in public for the next 20 minutes. Awesome. Thanks guys.

There was drinking and dancing later and it was just so wonderful to be in the company of my favorite people in the world.

The wedding was beautiful. George was literally giddy. He had the goofiest smile on his face as Steph walked down the aisle and she was actually bouncing down the aisle, she was so excited.

The brunch on Sunday was fantastic and a wonderful way to say goodbye to the huge amount of family and friends that were in town. Plus who doesn’t love to have a little helping of cheese grits before hopping on a plane back to LaGuardia…

A little rain never hurt anyone, and despite the very wet conditions at the reception, everyone made the best of it, and by the middle of dinner the sky cleared, the stars and lightning bugs came out, and it was the perfect Carolina night. Here are some highlights I’d like to share.

1. No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problem -It started with people loosing their shoes early in the night and by midnight, three groomsmen lost their shirts to the theme of New York, New York. What’s a little wedding strip show? Only in the south. Or maybe in Maine… I have a funny feeling we might see a repeat of this in July…

2. Make It Rain – Yes, the dance floor was wet, there were buckets catching water at every corner of the outdoor tents, the hanging lanterns were full of water and the poor place cards were covered with garbage bags in an effort to stay dry. But no one seemed to notice. We just ditched our shoes and walked around barefoot, ordering Blue Moons from the bar and eating Grit cakes waiting for the rain to stop. And when the bride and groom were announced they came strutting in under a huge black umbrella. How cute is that?

3. Don’t Stop Believin‘- When the dj makes a mistake and plays Don’t Stop Believing by Journey instead of the song you picked out to dance with your mama to…just improvise. This was incredible. Steph danced to My Girl with her dad, and then George and his mom took the floor to some serious hootin’ and hollerin’ from the tent perimeter. By the end of the song everyone was out on the dance floor fist pumping to Journey. How great is that? It was seriously the best thing ever. Let’s get this party started!

4. Best Man speeches are really important ( And it will probably never be as good as this one)– Why not go out of the box a bit? Regular speeches are boring. My best friend, and george’s best man made the best man speech of the year. In this toast/roast to George he literally hit on everything we love about George in the most hilarious way possible. In song… I apologize for the side video…tilt your head. It won’t kill you.

5. Other Treats– The cake was visually beautiful and delicious. There was an ice cream sundae bar with do it yourself toppings, amazing appetizers traditional to the south, a delicious dinner buffet with roasted vegetables and chicken cakes and salmon and sides that just kept coming. The flowers were absolutely incredible and the pictures do not do them justice.

In short, this was the best wedding I’ve ever been to because of how much I love George & Steph and it was an incredible treat for me to be able to participate and attend in this wonderful wedding with my incredible family of friends. I am so blessed by having the unique privilege of having an incredible extended family of friends who have been, and will continue to be a major part of my life, by letting me be a part of there’s. Cheers to you guys. I love you!

The New York Times Style section ran some of this season’s hot new registry trends. I gotta say this is a pretty nice list. It’s focused on cooking outdoors, but there’s a little bit of everything there… like this lovely little beer scooter.  I think I know several people who would absolutely appreciate a 14 MPH Scooter/Cooler on wheels. Most of them are men, and I think registering for this little beauty would a) make that china look a whole lot more reasonable and b) it’s a great group gift from your groomsmen or bridesmaids…Definitely worth checking out.
