Sometimes It Is All Fun And Games…

Last week we blogged about the amazing gowns and trends that we saw at October bridal market.  Bridal market is 4 days of running between hotel suites, runway shows and showrooms with very little sleep and even less food!  But, amongst the schlepping we do get to have a little fun!  Below is a recap of some of the fun that we had and the faces behind the incredible designs that we saw!



Beth and store manager, Alicia with Haute Bride designer Lindsie Jones at Pier 94, a new venue for bridal market
Friend of TWD, Candice Dowling Coppola of Jubilee Events joined us for two days of market.  Here we are pictured with her and gown designer, Amy Kuschel at the Essex Hotel
With the talented and equally as sweet designer, Anne Barge.  Don’t miss her stunning designs at our trunk show this weekend!
Alicia, Candice and I enjoy a drink at the rooftop bar the Empire Hotel


With designer, Judd Waddell in his showroom
October market is especially fun because there are always fabulous parties to attend!  A few of our industry friends join us on Monday evening as we party hopped between the Martha Stewart and The Knot parties.


Ready to party!  From left- Candice Coppola of Jubilee Event, Elizabeth Zemetis of Blush Floral Design, myself and Alicia
The Martha Stewart party was held at an incredible space in their offices.
A view of the incredible tinsel chandelier over the bar! The party was incredible- from the music, to the food, to the fun stations- like the Essie bar for nails, the fake eyelash station and the ‘pipe cleaner lady’, it was hard to tear ourselves away!


Of course, this shot MADE the evening!


Beth and Sr. Judd Waddell!


We met up with some more industry friends at the party and introduced them to our favorite designers.  Pictured here from left- Tony Palmeri of Datura, a modern garden, Carla TenEyck, designer Amy Kuschel, Beth and Candice of Jubilee Events

After MUCH fun at Martha, we headed over to The Knot party at the New York Public Library by limousine!! (provided by The Knot)



As we arrived at the library, I ran into my friend and an incredibly talented event planner and author, Karen Bussen and her assistant Nicole
On the ‘red carpet’
The Connecticut vendor crew with designer Anne Barge
The interior of the library was majestic.  The Knot did an incredible job with the lighting and the decor.  The focal point and conversation piece of the evening was an enormous bride with a skirt of flowers, escorted by a pair of FABULOUS floral poodles -designed by the one and only, Preston Bailey. The bride’s gown was inspired by Monique Llhulier.





It was certainly a memorable market!
