Winter Wedding Tips

November 27th, 2016

Winter weddings are growing in popularity. The fact that it is not as expensive to get married in the colder months means that more couples are seriously considering it as an option.

It is certainly easier to book your dream venue for the reception, and there are plenty of warm destinations for honeymooners to enjoy. There is something extra special about going on honeymoon to a warm destination in the winter months. These are just a few of the reasons to get married just before, or just after Christmas, there are many others, but we will not go into them here. The main purpose of this article is to help those who have already decided on a winter wedding to plan theirs.

Be realistic about the weather

It is important to realize that a winter wedding does present some potential challenges. If you are lucky, the weather will be kind and you will get some winter sunshine on your special day. However, you need to be realistic and be prepared for rain or snow.

 

Dressing for the weather

Bearing the weather in mind when you choose your wedding and bridesmaid’s dresses is especially important. The last thing you need is for you, and your wedding party, to be freezing on your special day. You will be warm enough when you are inside, but may end up regretting buying a light floaty dress when you are outside posing for photos in a chilly wind.

Investing in a good shawl means that you can still choose an off the shoulder style of dress, if you want to. When you are outside you can use the wrap to keep the chill away while the photographer positions you, and get someone to hold it for you while the actual photos are taken.

 

The right shoes for a winter wedding

Bearing in mind that the ground could be wet or icy, good footwear is especially important. Usually, satin shoes are not a good idea for a winter wedding. However, if you really want to wear them you still can, but they will need to be sprayed with a good quality waterproofing spray. It is important to bear in mind that using this type of product is likely to change the colour of your shoes slightly.

Providing your bridesmaids with closed in shoes also makes sense. This year there are some beautiful court shoes available, which are perfect for both the bride and her bridesmaids.

The right accessories

For a winter wedding, equipping your ushers with a few large umbrellas is a good idea. That way if it rains they can use them to escort everyone to and from the car.

 

Plan your photos carefully

You need to think about your guests, especially your older guests. You do not want people standing around in the cold waiting for the photographer to do the group shots. If it is too cold or wet to get the outside shots you want, have alternative indoor locations set up and agreed with your photographer in advance.

Winter weddings really are wonderful. By following the tips above you can ensure that yours goes smoothly, and that everyone enjoys themselves.

Bridgeview Yacht Club is Celebrating 20 Years

November 6th, 2016

 

Introducing

“The Loft By Bridgeview”

Island Park, NY

 

This coming Spring, 2017, one of the most exclusive, elegant, and chic Wedding and Event venues in the tri-state area–The Bridgeview Yacht Club–will be celebrating its 20th Anniversary with the unveiling of a BRAND NEW FACILITY: The Loft By Bridgeview at 80 Waterfront Blvd, Island Park, New York 11558!

 

Bridgeview specializes in celebrating one special event at a time in their elegant waterfront estate. Guests can privately enjoy strolling through the lush gardens and spacious courtyards. The facility features a Nantucket styled cocktail room that precedes your reception in their majestic ballroom, all nestled dockside where you can enjoy the truly unique atmosphere their waterfront offers.

 

And now with the addition of The Loft, a new affordable space created for today’s more financial cost-conscious clientele, guests can enjoy a smaller, contemporary facility designed to meet their needs while still keeping those important elements of beauty, class, and sophistication.

 

The Census Bureau projects that 2.3 million couples wed every year in the US. That breaks down to nearly 6,200 weddings a day, and with so many venue options available it can often become an overwhelming task trying to find the perfect place to celebrate your special day. The Loft and its amazing staff hope to alleviate those frustrations by providing quality wedding packages that ensure your special day is nothing short of what you’ve always dreamt it would be.

 

Gone will be the days of travelling to distant locations for “rustic” off-beat event spaces when The Loft will offer an even more picturesque alternative with all of the charm and beauty one could ask for.

 

As they gear up to celebrate their 20th Anniversary, The Loft By Bridgeview is excited to welcome all interested in this great new venue for your wedding, birthday, bar/bat mitzvah, club, or live entertainment event!

Fairy Tale Monterey Wedding

September 2nd, 2016

 

Every fairy tale has its end or at least it’s to be continued. I moved to Monterey almost four years ago on a big leap of faith and it has been a life changing experience. I’ve always followed the motto “no risk – no reward”. Events in Monterey are very different from the rest of the world. The town just like the fog that encapsulates its nights creates its own magical blanket over its special events.

 

From its community based fund raising galas to the grandeur of its loved filled weddings, the town transform every occasion with its name alone. Monterey is not just rich with its beyond belief scenic views and family like community, the towns roots are actually deep in America’s history. It was a place where I was able to help guide love to the altar and also design many successful social events. Monterey will always hold a special place in my heart as I found unexpected true love here.

 

Monterey really shifted my event aesthetic coming from the bright sunny dessert land of Phoenix, Arizona where my influences where bright pops colors nestled in its impure topaz like landscape (reddish-orange, gold, opaque, pale grey and browns), maturing with time to incorporate more earth metals and woods. I drew a lot of inspiration from the desert plant life and Native American culture

 

Monterey on the other hand has its own special style which quickly becomes your own. It draws mainly from its landscape which can be compared to something carved out by the Greek gods themselves. It’s a utopia where the phrase “the meeting of land and sea” takes on a different elevated meaning. The deep ocean colors that hug the peninsulas earthy greens and brown leave you with a canvas that can only be paired with spectacular glamor and sophisticated taste.

 

I can’t thank Hyatt Regency Monterey enough for gifting me such a life changing opportunity and allowing me to do it my way. Now the time has come to take everything the peninsula has enriched me with and use it as my journey in events continues. One of the most rewarding accomplishments I’ve been able to do is write these fun self-perspective blogs. Sharing my event stories and maybe providing some new and created ways of looking at all types of events has been gratifying. So this isn’t the end for our blogs just the passing of the baton to the next generation. If I had to leave everyone with one little nugget of wisdom it would be “Events should be fun, creative and a powerful way of self-expression. Enjoy the journey and don’t let the little bumps along the way spoil the success you are striving for.
