While finding the dream wedding gown is first and foremost on most brides’ minds, we all know that the perfect wedding day look is not complete until the veil and/or headpiece have been selected!
We are delighted to invite you to our Toni Federici Veil Trunk Show at StarDust Celebrations this weekend, December 10-12. This exclusive Toni Federici event, featuring the designer’s veils, hair accessories and jewelry, is open only to brides who already have their gown and is by appointment only at our salon. Your gown does not have to be from StarDust or one of our sister stores, but you must bring it with you to your appointment.
Call 972.781.1619 for your appointment.
What happens in Vegas does not always have to stay in Vegas…Remember we shared with you here how important we feel continuing education is to keeping on top of our game as premier wedding planners? Well, we took a little jaunt to Vegas, Baby (couldn’t resist!), last month for an annual seminar by the international wedding planner association Weddings Beautiful. Not only was it educational and beneficial, it was also super-fun!
The interesting and entertaining seminar was held at the Legendary Bally’s on the strip, and the eight featured speakers have more than 160 years in combined experience in the wedding industry! In addition to enjoying the guest speakers, demos and roundtable discussions, we got to tour three of Vegas’ most infamous – and busiest – wedding chapels!
Rest assured, StarDust wedding planners are now fully equipped to handle planning a destination wedding in one of the most fun and unique cities in America! If you’re interested in learning more about planning a fabulous Las Vegas wedding, give us a call!
Here are a few fun photos to commemorate our time there.
Lindsay and Hal tied the knot on July 31, at the lovely St. Ann’s Catholic Church in Coppell. Lindsay wore a beautiful A-line lace gown with a ribbon sash while her bridesmaids wore their choice of three different full-length gowns of moss green. The ladies all carried charming bouquets of happy yellows and whites.
In a fun, impulsive move during the recessional, Hal swept Lindsay up and twirled her around for a sweet kiss halfway down the aisle!
Their ceremony was at 2:00 in the afternoon, followed by a break until the action continued at their reception at 7:00 that evening. The celebration was held at the gorgeous Grand Hall of the Texas Discovery Gardens in Fair Park. The yellow, white and green theme was continued in their décor, complete with lemons galore, a perfect accent for a hot summer night.
The couple and their guests enjoyed a delicious buffet from DC’s, then danced the night away to the high energy sounds of the fabulous party band, Signed Sealed Delivered. The groom even got up on stage and rapped to Juicy by Notorious BIG, followed by a crazy stage dive!
After the cake cutting, bouquet and garter toss and hours of dancing, the band’s horn section lead the happy couple out through a shower of rose petals for the limo to whisk them away for the night. By the way, check out the boots the bride put on for the party! They were specially made with the couple’s wedding date on the pulls!
Thank you, Lindsay and Hal, for choosing us to help make your wedding day dream a reality! We wish you a long and happy marriage!
