First I wanted to thank you for reading this wedding blog. It is what I love, what I'm passionate about and given the response...what you like too.
Over the last few months, I've been moving content over to a new site that I'm hoping you'll love just as much. It still has some tweeks to go, but I'm hoping that you'll move with me.
Yours In Bridal will have all of the articles you've read over the past 2 years and SO MUCH MORE!! I'm finalizing articles with industry leaders, destinations and of course, the best-latest-greatest in trunk shows, sales and events worldwide. I will continue to make things as "EASY" for you my couples as I can. So why move...because I want to continue to stretch myself, the company and to provide you with the best there is.
Because I'm now taking on a ton more responsibility, I'll be posting new content ONLY on Yours in Bridal moving forward. This site will stay up and hopefully if you've just discovered me...you'll visit Yours in Bridal for the latest news and stay for a while.
For those of you who are subscribers here, please subscribe on at our new home.
So thank you very much and I can't wait to show you what's happening next.

Douglas Hannant and I had a chat during fashion week when he hinted at his excitement for this upcoming bridal season. He said he wanted to create a 2011 collection for a strong; no holds bared kind of bride. So you can imagine the surprise of walking into the Plaza hotel Edwardian Room to see trees and …snow? For a spring collection? Always known to make a statement the first model strut her stuff in a silk crepe and satin trim tuxedo. Yes, that was absolutely an attention grabber as each of the pieces that followed.
From the tux to feathers to tiered organza skirts, each piece said “This is my wedding day and I’m doing it my way”. What stuck me was the detail; simply yet stunning. The drama came from an embroidered dodice or a simple front with a plunging back. The veils were cage bird like and in some instances, no veil at all. It was refreshing that there was a mix of traditional yet daring to be different. Who says you must have a veil or hat, or your hair has to be in a sweet and perfect bun? Definitely not Douglas.
