Save the date for wedding show Couples planning on a 2018 wedding are encouraged save the date for the Port Angeles Regional Chamber of Commerce’s inaugural Olympic Peninsula Wedding Show, slated for Sunday, Jan. 21 in Port Angeles. Planning your wedding should be exciting and enjoyable. The Olympic Peninsula Wedding Show was created to provide couples, along with their friends and families, with information about local vendors and with great tools to make the process easier. Come to the show to meet, discuss and plan your big day with all of the best local wedding professionals. For several years, event coordiFox nator Lindsay Fox worked as the catering sales manager for the Red Lion Hotel and produced the “Love … Locally Inspired” wedding expo in the hotel’s beautiful waterfront ballroom. However, she has transitioned to the events manager for the Port Angeles Regional Chamber of Commerce and will continue the Wedding Expo tradition under the umbrella of the Chamber. The expo will take place at the Vern Burton Community Center with the hope of increasing vendor participation and guest attendance.

According to experts, wedding spending has reached an all-time high. More than ever, couples are looking to make their special day both unique and individualized. That trend also has found its way to the North Olympic Peninsula. Over the past few years, Fox has noticed a growth in the wedding industry on the Peninsula with many more local businesses cropping up and offering a variety of wedding-related services. Also, after working with many soon-to-be married couples, not only via the Red Lion Hotel but in other related endeavors, she realized there was a local disconnect: The bride, groom and their families often didn’t know what services and vendors were available in the area. Fox was constantly receiving inquiries and calls asking for contacts for venues, caterers, DJs, florists, photographers, designers, makeup artists, etc. The small wedding show at the hotel offered a great sampling of local services, but Fox hopes that a new, larger, sponsor-neutral venue will encourage even more vendors to participate. She has lined up an array of North Olympic Peninsula wedding professionals from venues and dress designers to florists, photographers, caterers, DJs and everything in between. Fox is excited to offer a more interactive experience, with beautiful design showcases and more features to

‘I do,’ take two: Guide to second marriage by METROCREATIVE

Others will understand that there might be a melange of people at a second wedding. Children from previous marriages, as well as divorced spouses or former parents-in-law, are not out of the question. Even if exes will not be included, make sure they know about the nuptials in advance of others. It’s common courtesy, and it can help head off feelings of ill-will. Some couples choosing to tie the knot again scale back the size of the wedding this time around, feeling something smaller and more intimate — with only the closest of friends and family — is more suitable.

Couples are returning to the altar in increasing numbers, as second and third weddings are becoming ever more popular. Pew Research Center indicates that, as of 2014, 64 percent of divorced or widowed men have remarried, compared with 52 percent of previously married women. Lavish second weddings were once uncommon, but that trend is shifting. Couples who are taking another crack at marriage are tying the knot with renewed vigor and with weddings that might rival some first-timers’ events. Men and women who are remarrying after divorce or being widowed might not know how to approach planning their upcoming nuptials. The following are some guidelines to making the wedding sequel a success.


Considering couples who have been married previously likely have many of the housewares and items for daily living that first-timers might not, registering for these gifts is not necessary. What’s more, some of the same guests might have been present at first marriages and gifted then. In lieu of gifts, couples might ask guests to donate to a specific charity or forgo gifts altogether.


Couples who have been married before often find that they have more leeway with regard to their wedding wardrobes than they did when tying the knot for the first time. Brides might choose something less traditional than a long, white dress. In fact, this can be a time to let loose and select something that is festive or even funky. This also might provide a great opportunity to choose clothing styles from different cultures or ties into one’s heritage. This freedom also allows brides to broaden their horizons with regard to where to buy their wedding wardrobes.

Grooms might opt for something more casual than a tuxedo or coordinate with their brides-to-be so they are VOWS on the same creative page. Couples can use experience to draft vows that have Colored tuxedos and vintage suits are acceptable, even personal meaning to their unique situations and make though such attire might have raised a few eyebrows the the wedding ceremony even more special. first time around. People getting married again can impart their own personalities into the ceremony and party to follow.

wedding party to work out several day-of tasks, including the making of parking signs and programs, setting up chairs and tables for the ceremony and reception, ensuring decorations were in place and making sure the bride and groom had what they needed when they needed it. While getting ready, Laura said she got makeup on her white dress. But her bridesmaids were there to remove the stains and fix her hair, while Laura’s bridesdude was ready with a glass of wine. With their friends and family at their sides, Laura and Michael were wed by a dear friend from Massachusetts, Jenn Smith, who wrote their entire vows. Celebrating their Nordic/Irish heritage, the couple performed a hand-fasting ceremony with silk ribbon that matched their wedding colors of dusty blue and navy blue. Once the ceremony was over and as photos were being taken by Laura’s photographer friend, Kayla Coleman, guests were welcome to enjoy infused water, sweet tea, wine and beer.

Peninsula Weddings Kegs were ordered from Agnew Grocery and Feed, located just outside of Port Angeles. Caterer Kelly Grimes of Country Temptations in Sequim supplied appetizers of popcorn and watermelon to tide guests over until the couple returned. DJ Chandra Graham of Port Angeles welcomed the couple to the reception, where they enjoyed Grimes’ selection of pulled pork, salmon, prime rib, orzo salad, spinach salad and rustic bread. For dessert, doughnuts from Cock-A-Doodle Doughnuts of Port Angeles were presented on vintage French bottle drying racks. Michael and Laura shared slices of Boston cream pie from Safeway in Port Angeles, an homage to the state where they met. What made this wedding so special, the couple said, was how amazing it was that so many people from so far away took time from their own lives to celebrate theirs.

Trendy styles for short-haired brides by METROCREATIVE

Lauren Bacall or Judy Garland.

On a day when all eyes and cameras will be trained on them, it’s natural for brides and grooms tying the knot to want to look their best. As a result, many couples invest a portion of their budgets into spa and beauty treatments, with many even hiring salon stylists to ensure their wedding-day looks are flawless. Women with short hair might lament that they do not have many options when styling their hair for their wedding days. Some might even consider growing out their locks; however, plenty of creative styles exist for ladies without long locks.


One way to “tress to impress” is to experiment with some color. Well-placed highlights, balayage treatments, ombre or peek-a-boo underlights can add an extra spark to a bride’s normal hairstyle. Speak with a qualified stylist about what you plan to achieve with a wedding-day look, so color can be applied correctly.


Brides might want to harken back to an era when glamour reigned supreme. Replicate one of the short styles of the 1940s or 1950s, paying homage to Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe,


Braids can add whimsy to shoulder-length or shorter hair. In addition, braids can anchor short locks when an up-do is desired. Braids can be placed into the front or rear crown of the head to look like a hair halo or crown.


If short hair cannot be gathered into a braid or bun, you can opt for adorned pins, barrettes or headbands to add a touch of sparkle to the look. Ask a stylist to tease the crown of your hair to achieve a little more height and impact.


Many women with short hair find that using bobby pins to pin up select areas of their hair can help achieve a partial up-do look without the need for longer locks. Experienced stylists will know how to manipulate hair effectively to create this look. Small tendrils of hair can be left free and curled for a less structured, more natural effect. Brides-to-be with short hair do not need to fret nor make drastic changes to their hairstyles to look beautiful on their wedding days. Short hair can be manipulated into many cameraready creations.

When it comes to weddings on the North Olympic Peninsula, who doesn’t want to keep up with the latest trends? That’s where our local entrepreneurs coming in with their expert knowledge and amazing abilities to stay on top of the ever-changing world of weddings. We spoke with a few local women about the upcoming wedding season to get their thoughts on 2018 trends in their specific fields.



When it comes to floral arrangements, Haley Ray, owner and lead florist of Bada Bloom in Port Angeles, said she’s seeing a lot of woodsy garden trends. “(We’re seeing) less-structured arrangements and more free-form bouquets. Lots of hanging and chandeliertype bouquets,” Ray said in an email. “Bouquets are much heavier in greens this year; eucalyptus, dusty miller, ivy — free flowing elements. Huge increase in requests for dahlias and locally sourced products. “Living greens, such as succulents, are being abundantly utilized in not only bridal bouquets but also centerpieces and boutonnieres. Lots of textures are showing up in branches, foliages and vines.” There are some increases for different types of arrangements, too, Ray said. “This year, there has been an influx in flower crown requests and wreath requests, [plus] wearable wedding flowers.” Ray has owned Bada Bloom since March 2001. They are located at 106 W. First St. Phone 360-452-9948 or visit www.bada-pa.com for more information.


The cake authority on the Peninsula is undoubtedly


Susan Boucher of That Takes The Cake is Sequim. She follows wedding trends from New York and implements them in her work. This season, Boucher said she’s going to see quite a change in the look of cakes. “I think we’re going to be getting away from the rustic look. That was more 2015, 16, 17. I think we’re going to be seeing more geometric (shapes), more metals, like gold, platinum and silvers,” she said. “It’s really bursting out, the metals especially.” If metallics and simple shapes aren’t your thing, Boucher said brush strokes are a big trend. “It’s like a big paintbrush painting on these things (cakes). It’s really fun,” she said. Boucher said brides are wanting watercolor style painted pictures and collages on their cakes. Some might even want to incorporate the geometric style with this painting style, using yellows and bright oranges. A few other trends Boucher is seeing include more

The dress is a staple to any wedding. Belva Bodey of Black Diamond Bridal in Port Angeles said this season, wedding gowns are “outside the box.” “Brides will be seen this year wearing gown styles anywhere from a dramatic effect to a simple garden dress,” Bodey said in an email. “Fabrics are in beautiful tones of silvery blush and glowing champagnes then softly covered with lace overlays. Then a top layer is done with the new soft tulle that appears to float ethereally in the air. “It’s just kind a dreamy year this year. “But the number one thing we’ll be seeing on most gowns is lace; a little lace, lots of lace and even floating lace. French laces, guipure laces, silk and cotton laces, rich and elegant lace, batten burgs and even grandma’s curtain lace.” She said gowns with plunging backs and necklines held in place with invisible netting and tulle also is hot. “Silhouettes are varied as always. Ball gowns, which never go out of style, will have special hems to give them an especially flirty feel, or their crisp tulle is replaced with the newest soft tulle,” Bodey said. “While there are a few mermaids, the modified fitand-flare and A-line gowns flatters every figure,” she added. Black Diamond Bridal is located at 263 Alice Road. For more information, phone 360-452-2354 or visit www. blackdiamondbridal.com.

Is airbrushed makeup the way to go? by METROCREATIVE Hair and makeup is an important part of wedding day planning. Brides and grooms want to look their best on their wedding days, when they will no doubt take dozens of photos, if not more. Men might apply some oil-absorbing powder to tone down shine on their skin, but women tend to pull out all the stops when selecting bridal makeup, often hiring professional makeup artists to create a signature look. Airbrush-applied makeup is an option women might want to explore. The wedding resource The Knot says that makeup airbrushing is quite popular in the world of movies and modeling and is now becoming more popular among brides-to-be. When applied correctly by a professional, airbrush makeup can have a number of perks. Understanding airbrush makeup can help brides determine if it’s the best choice for them. Airbrush makeup is comprised of a

very thin liquid makeup that is applied with the use of an air gun. This produces a thin, even layer of foundation, often creating a matte finish. Makeup artists can custom blend

shades to get the right match for their customers’ skin tones. And because the fine mist of airbrush makeup enables true skin tone to show through, it can appear much more natural.

Many airbrushed formulations are silicone-based, enabling long-lasting wear and water-resistant properties. This is advantageous when hugging and kissing on one’s wedding day. Some airbrush makeup can last up to 16 hours. Some airbrush formulations are wateror alcohol-based. Alcohol-based options can be used to cover tattoos or birthmarks. Touch-ups are minimal with airbrush makeup, and the formulations can be layered to cover blemishes. Airbrush makeup also creates a pristine finish for applying other makeup. Airbrush makeup is compatible with well-moisturized skin and takes to it well, but dry skin may flake, crack and look flat. Brides who end up shedding tears of joy on their wedding days might find that airbrush makeup can streak, which can be difficult to cover up. Because it requires a certain skill set and equipment, airbrush makeup tends to be more expensive than traditional makeup when done by a professional.

Various colors, including pink, blue, yellow, purple and, of course, green, are on display each spring, providing wonderful backdrops for nature photographers. Wedding photographers also might enjoy shooting happy couples in

spring, when the colors of nature can provide a perfect and colorful complement to men and women during their engagement or wedding photoshoots. In fact, spring flowers have inspired artists from various mediums. Among the more notable painters to paint springtime flowers and landscapes were Georgia O’Keefe, Impressionist pioneer Claude Monet and Vincent Van Gogh.
