Impromptu engagement party

Monday, November 28th, 2005

One of the big reasons why so many engagements happen around the holidays, I’m convinced, is the fact that it’s the time of year when people gather together with their families. Especially when many members of the family live afar and you only come together once or twice a year. ...

C is for color

Monday, November 21st, 2005

An engagement ring, like all other wedding accessories is an opportunity for self expression. It’s about style, as much as it is a symbol of your commitment to your partner. There are lots of variables: the center stone, the setting, side stones, the metal, and of course size and quality ...

She’s having a baby!

Sunday, November 20th, 2005

I just found out today that my cousin, with whom I spent every day of my childhood, is pregnant! She got married last June, and had a beautiful reception at a private estate in the Santa Cruz Mountains. I’m elated to hear the news, because for as long as I ...

Couture in San Francisco

Thursday, November 17th, 2005

One of my favorite things to do as the friend of a bride-to-be is go dress shopping. Not only do I get to look at the latest designs, but I get the honor of sharing that tremendous moment with my friend when she sees herself, for the first time, in ...

Diet, crashing

Wednesday, November 16th, 2005

Crash dieting for a wedding just doesn’t sound like a good idea to me. I understand, completely, the desire to look your best in wedding photos that will be admired, year, after year, after year. But the whole process, the pressure, and the restraint, and dissatisfaction of eating boiled broccoli ...

The un-chosen one

Monday, November 14th, 2005

Recently being named a bridesmaid, I feel compelled to dedicate some time to thinking about the role, and what the title entails. I’m a girl who takes her obligations seriously, and I won’t be one of those bridesmaids who simply wears the dress, and holds the bouquet like a trophy. ...

Something blue

Sunday, November 13th, 2005

Color seems to play as big a role in weddings as the food, or the music, or the venue. Okay, maybe not in quite the same way, but it certainly does get a lot of consideration. One of the first things a bride will decide when planning her wedding is ...

New products

Friday, November 11th, 2005

We get very excited about new products around here. When we receive samples, everyone pours over them, and when it's something edible, we're all over it! It's always fun to see if something we love will be popular with brides. Plus, there's a lot of work that goes into adding ...

The hip hop violinist

Friday, November 11th, 2005

The Hip Hop Violinist. That's Miri Ben-Ari's title. I saw her perform at a hip hop concert last night, and she's amazing. An obviously gifted musician, with a funky style, and commanding stage presence, she plays the violin feverishly to well known hip hop songs, picking up the melody one ...

Dove releases

Wednesday, November 9th, 2005

Dove releases at the end of a wedding ceremony are very dramatic. If you've never seen one, usually two crates filled with doves are placed in front of the couple as they get ready to be introduced as man and wife for the first time. And sometimes the bride and ...
