Don’t we hate it when our friends play cupid? Except, of course, when the arrow of love actually hit its intended targets and a relationship blossoms. Sonya met her new husband Richie through a girlfriend who was dating Richie’s friend. The two started spending time together in a friendly fashion at first, and as the rules would have it, they eventually fell in love and into something more. After about five years, the couple decided the time had come to take the leap. And once the time comes, the dress is hardly ever far behind. Sonya says things moved along pretty quickly from the beginning. They were engaged in March and married June 7, 2014. “As soon as I got engaged, I started looking for a dress,” she said. She came across Jenna in White at a bridal show, and from the initial appointment booking, she said she was blown away with the personalized service. Sonya had gone to a few other places in search of the perfect gown, but Jenna in White had her at ‘hello,’ she said. Sonya’s mom accompanied her to the first meeting at the Walled Lake salon. Jenna made a point of getting an idea of what she was looking for beforehand, Sonya said, so when she and mom arrived, Jenna had a beautiful cavalry of gowns armed and ready. Sonya ended up picking the first one she tried on, because just like love, when… read more →
Your wedding day is probably the most important event you will plan in your life. It is such a momentous occasion not just because of its significance, but also because of the sheer scale and logistics of it all. Newly engaged couples often feel at a loss on how to handle all the details. Here are a few tips you may want to keep in mind. Don’t Rush Anything Take your time in planning your wedding. The more you think through each aspect of your wedding, the better the results can be. Being in a hurry can be costly and disastrous. Start with the Big Picture and Work Inwards First, envision the overall event. Do you want the wedding to be outdoors or indoors? For an outdoor wedding, will it be at a country club, by the lake, in a garden? If indoors, what venues will you choose from? After getting a general idea of the whole thing, you can start working your way into the more detailed decisions, such as color theme, décor, and food. Separate your plans into “needs” and “wants” to make sure you cover all basic requirements before blowing the budget on unnecessary additions. Speaking of budget, be triply sure what your budget is before anything. Figure this out even before making any reservations. This will help in determining what are “needs” and what are “wants.” You will want to spend a little extra for professionals for… read more →
With tales of glass slippers, poisoned apples and princes disguised as frogs, who wouldn’t want to be a princess? And with a name like Aerial, the tiara fits beautifully. Newlywed Aerial Turner (formerly Ali) admits that she’s not the girly girl who had china arranged and bridesmaids picked from age 12, but she knew she had to have the big, bedazzled ball-gown. She says the nuptial day is “the only day you can look like a princess.” “It’s not like we live in a high-class society that goes to balls, galas and charity events,” she laughs. “When else will we do it?” In true fairy-tale fashion, Turner has known her husband, Antoine, since childhood. Despite a pact with her best friend, Turner started dating said friend’s cousin at age 14. Like most adolescent relationships, though, it didn’t last. But they kept in touch throughout the separation.
As Tom Santilli of the Detroit Wedding Examiner writes, “Michigan, and specifically the Detroit-Metro area, is a uniquely beautiful place to have your wedding. We experience all 4 seasons (sometimes in the same week!), which gives you the perfect atmosphere no matter what you prefer: The bright summer day, the cool spring, the white winter wedding, or all the colors of fall.” Tom has been to weddings at over 400 locations all over the state. He knows some of the biggest names in the industry that people from all over the country choose for their most special day: Cherry Creek, Addison Oaks, Concorde Inn, and the Roostertail, among others. Soon-to-be-weds in Michigan are truly blessed for having such beautiful places to tie the knot. And now, there is another reason they are at an advantage when planning their weddings: Jenna in White. On a couple’s special day, everything should – and can – be perfect. While the selection of the venue is partly done with the guests in mind, the creation of the bride’s outfit is something that’s all about her. Although open only since November 2013, Jenna in White has over 25 years of experience in creating wedding dresses, custom wedding veils, wedding shoes, and accessories. Jenna uses only the best quality fabrics with exquisite embroidery and lace, and incorporates elements such as seed pearls and Swarovski crystals, according to each bride’s personal style. The Shoes While the bride’s dress… read more →
The wedding gown is the height of meaningful symbolism in marriages. Brides-to-be come to bridal gown shops full of hope. Their chosen gown is seen as an opportunity for happiness – a symbolism of the transition from single life into a married happily ever after. As Sheryl Paul wrote in The Conscious Bride: “The wedding dress symbolizes both the untouchable purity of a princess and the regal perfection of a queen.” It is understood that on a woman’s wedding day, she wants to feel like a princess. A woman sees her special day as a time when she can be transformed and “elevated to a spiritual state.” At this point, “the wedding dress ceases to be merely an object that will help make her ‘look perfect’ but rather can be utilized as an amulet to assist her during her rite of passage.”
