You Can Dress Her Up But…

I was fortunate enough to be invited to the exclusive Grand Opening of the stunning bridal salon, IN WHITE located in Agawam, MA this past Tuesday night. The Lancaster, PA company purchased the locally-owned Bancroft Bridal last month, renovated and renamed the business to match its sister store.

This night was a little bittersweet for me because Bancroft Bridal is where I said yes to the dress, 15 years ago.

An extra special perk at the party was that I got to re-introduce myself to the woman who helped me find my gown! Kristin was in her first year of bridal consultancy back then, and here she is, years of management under her veil now – and will continue as the Manager of In White.

It’s really fabulous to see someone who understands great customer service and wants all her clients to have a phenomenal experience at her shop, still shining and loving what she does!

The epic pictures of me of the event were taken by award-winning Seth Kaye Photography (who was recently named one of the Top 50 Photographers in the USA!)

Here I am captured with my partner in crime for the evening, Tanya Costigan of Bowties & Butterflies Event Planning

I LOVE MY JOB!

I FOUND THE GOWN! This dress jacked my boobs up so much I could practically motorboat myself. The dress itself was stunning!

 

EDIT: I should add a picture of my real gown that I wore 15 years ago with my handsome groom:

Prepping the Bride

As someone who “opted out”‘ of a big wedding and eloped I do not have the experience of planning a wedding but, in my world of aesthetics I have seen more than my share of stressed out brides. I know the value of fresh, clear, glowing skin on and in the days before the wedding day.

These events leading up to your wedding bring more photos and entertaining than any other time in your life; The showers, Jack and Jill. and don’t forget the bachelorette party! The planning of your wedding should include time for facials so your skin can be in it’s best condition in the weeks before the wedding.

At Skin Catering we suggest a series of facials before the big events start to give the skin a healthy glow, clear up any imperfections and help make make up application smooth and easy, not to mention an hour to yourself just to be quiet.

We suggest starting six months before the big day with monthly facials. The week of the wedding we have a special facial for the bride that can be done any time during the week right up to the day of the wedding.

We also recommend putting Gift Certificates for facials and massage on your registry!
