Anthropologie Launches BHLDN: Bohemian Brides Rejoice!

At last! Anthropologie says "yes to the dress!"

It is no surprise that my inbox filled up today with forwards from our super-chic brides, who were bursting with glee upon reading their email today.  Like we do at Chandelier, many of our girls lust after the delicate bohemian details and one-of-a-kind accessories and styles at this retail favorite. In fact, we have had more than one bride hand us the latest Anthropologie catalogue as a representation of their style when we're creating the style plan for their wedding.

So, it was delightful to see the news that the long-awaited bridal line BHLDN (first announced last year to the industry) is finally being unveiled this Valentine's Day. That's certainly something sweet!

Stay tuned for more on this seemingly-stunning vintage-inspired collection! Like you, we cannot wait to get a peek.

Save the Dates We Love

We're fresh off the prime proposal season (well, actually, still smack in the middle of it with Valentine's Day around the corner), and that means we're SMACK in the middle of major wedding planning for our Fall 2011 clients at Chandelier Events.

That means, we're hot on Save the Dates these days. Ok, if you're getting married, have friends getting married or have planned a wedding over the last few years, you know what Save the Dates are all about. But for those wedding enthusiasts who are newer to the trend--essentially, these mailers can be anything from a postcard, a magnet, a piece of wood -- all with the message to mark out the calendar, book the hotel, and boogie on down to the wedding 8-to-10 months down the road.

With that said, we've rounded up a few of our new favorites!

While you're browsing, be sure to check out your hotel room group reservations. Be mindful of the high traffic seasons at your wedding destination (fall wedding during college football season could put a kibosh on your hotel room rates and availability)! And, of course, include your personal URL on the Save the Date so guests can seek out hotel information and book rooms online.
