September 23, 2017 Salisbury, MA Alecia was initially apprehensive about attending Brandon’s family reunion in North Hampton, NH. But when she arrived, to her delight, the reunion turned out to be a surprise birthday party, meticulously planned by Brandon (her boyfriend since college), in her honor. Brandon brought both of their families together for the celebration, including Alecia’s dad – who flew in from California – as well as the couple’s dog. More surprises were in store. At the end…

Wedding Planning Q & A

Q: Are there benefits to wearing a well-tailored suit instead of a tuxedo? A: “If you don’t have the budget to buy a bespoke (custom-tailored) suit, consider the option of renting a hybrid between a tux and a suit called ‘tuit,’ (pronounced ‘toot’) says Elizabeth Dirom of Madeleine’s Daughter in Portsmouth, NH. “It has a less formal look – no big satin stripe down the pant leg or wide satin lapel – but it sets you and your groomsmen apart from…

Vintage Looks Crossing Over to Modern Trends

Trends change over time, that’s a given; we can especially see this within the fashion industry. However, we occasionally see trends from the past coming back into modern style. Take crop tops from the 90’s or peasant shirts from the 70’s. Both trends have made a triumphant return into modern fashion. We see this happening with wedding dress styles as well. Many articles have identified short dresses as being one of the leading trends for 2018 weddings. The trend is…

Here in New England, we know not to depend on the weather—especially when planning for your wedding.

This can be done in two ways:…
