Outdoor ceremonies can be held on the newly completed patio, where the weathered red rock formations and the brilliant blue Colorado skies are joined together by a grand, hand-crafted red wood pergola. Before the ceremony, the Bride and her attendants will dress in her three-room Bridal Suite. For the Groom and his entourage, a separate and sequestered Groom’s Room is provided.

Wedding Dress Basics

A-Line: This dress shape has a fitted bodice and gradually flares from the waist. Provides a flattering look for most body types. Mermaid: This dress fits closely to the body through the torso and hips, then at the knee or just below it “fishtails� out in a flare to the floor. Empire: This style has a high waistline, which is right beneath the bust. This style works especially well for petite brides because it offers an illusion of an elongated body. Ball Gown: This dress has a fitted bodice and a very full skirt often supported by crinolines or petticoats. Ball gowns are typically floor length. Sheath: This dress is a narrow shape that hugs the body and shows off curves. It typically suits a wellproportioned bride with a long, sleek figure.

170


Wedding Dress Basics NECKLINES Asymmetric / One Shoulder: This modern neckline angles up from the chest toward just one shoulder with a strap, while the other shoulder is bare. Bateau: Also known as Boat neck, this neckline runs straight across, right beneath the collarbone and out to the tips of the shoulders. Halter: The bodice ends in straps that fasten around the back of the neck, leaving the back mostly exposed. This look is ideal for tall brides with broad shoulders, or anyone who wants to show off their back. Keyhole: A neckline with a circle, oval, or slit cut into the front (or back), creating a shape resembling a keyhole. Off The Shoulder / Portrait: A wide, soft shawl-like style that wraps from one tip of the shoulder to the other. This neckline showcases the collarbone and can be dropped off the shoulders for a more dramatic look. Scoop: A classic look that is shaped like a “U” and can be either low or high. Queen Ann: This neckline features a high rising collar at the back of the neck and sculpts low across the chest. Strapless: A traditional strapless neckline usually goes straight across the chest with no straps. Can also be cut with a sweetheart neckline. Sweetheart: This traditional bridal neckline is shaped like the top of a heart with a curve over each breast and dip in the center to a “V”. This look works well for larger chested brides and helps to elongate the neck. V-Neck / Plunging: A dramatic neckline that drops to the middle of the chest or lower.

171


Wedding Dress Basics TRAINS Brush / Sweep: The shortest train. Attaches at the waist and barely “brushes” the floor. Cathedral: The longest and most dramatic style that cascades up to six feet behind you. The train is often detachable or can be bustled. Chapel: Slightly shorter than the Cathedral, extending out about three feet behind you. This look is both dramatic and functional. Court: Slightly longer than the brush, this train begins at the waist and falls just to the floor or one foot behind you (or three feet from the waist). Watteau: A train that is attached at the shoulders instead of the waist.

FABRICS Chiffon: Delicate and sheer and often layered with other fabrics due to it’s transparency. Crepe: Light, soft, and thin, with a crinkled surface. Duchesse Satin: A lightweight hybrid of silk or polyester and rayon woven into a satin finish. Dupioni: A finish similar to shantung, but with thicker, coarser fibers, and a slight sheen. Organza: Crisp, nearly translucent fabric with a texture similar (though stiffer) than chiffon, more flowing than tulle. Satin: Smooth and heavy with a high sheen. Shantung: Similar to a raw silk, characterized by its rough/nubby texture Taffeta: A crisp, yet smooth fabric that adds texture and rustle to your dress. Tulle: A stiff netting that adds volume and pouf.

Tips for Attending a Bridal Show A bridal show is a great way to get a lot of planning and research done in one place. The number and variety of booths, the personal interaction with the vendors, brochures and samples, and the actual visual and tactile effect of seeing, smelling, tasting and feeling products is exciting and definitely worth your time. This is an opportunity to come face to face with wedding planners and the owners of a multitude of businesses to ask them questions and learn from their collective experience. Bridal shows can also help you save money as many vendors offer show only specials and giveaways.

BEFORE YOU GO: Make a list Have some idea of what you want for your wedding and make a list. The more you can narrow down your vision, the better off you’ll be. Determine three areas of your wedding you’d like to find vendors for (typically you can access vendor lists online) and note which ones you want to make sure to connect with. Hit these vendors first and save the others for later. Invite a friend This is a fun outing to bring a friend to, and sometimes you just need a partner in crime. Ask a friend, maid of honor, mother, sister, or your fiancé to come along. You’ll need that extra set of hands and eyes. They can collect information, provide valuable input, give you support, and assist in decision making. Create a wedding only email account Use this email to keep all your wedding related stuff in one spot. Create address labels You can use these to stick on giveaway slips and information sheets instead of filling that information out at every booth you are interested in. Include your name, address, phone number, e-mail, and wedding date.

WHAT TO BRING: Snacks/bottled water Food (and drinks) will likely be available, but it’s always best to be prepared.

Take notes Try to do this as you go through. This will help with the after-show analysis of whom to follow-up with. Watch the fashion shows They’re fun! Grab and enter Grab as much free stuff as you can - pens, samples… all of it’s for you. Enter the drawings from the vendors you’re interested in. Take breaks These are important because it’s exhausting, there’s a lot to take in, and you want time to digest some of what you see. Plus hydrating is important. Sample cakes and catering Don’t stress If you can’t find everything / everyone you wanted, keep in mind there are lots of shows and thousands of amazing vendors… you’ll find what you’re looking for. Have fun No matter whom you go with, what you enter for, or who you talk to… remember to have fun. You’re a bride/groom and they’re there for you.

A tote bag You’ll have plenty to put in it. Checkbook/credit card Often vendors offer special show day only discounts if you book them on the spot. Keep in mind certain vendors can only accommodate one wedding per day and their calendars fill quickly. For that must-have vendor, be ready to reserve your date. Wedding planner/calendar

AFTER THE EXPO: Dump your tote Sort through the contents of your bag and start getting in touch with the vendors you were most interested in. Set up appointments for some one-on-one time. Check your email frequently You may have won a giveaway.

Note pad and pen

WHILE YOU’RE THERE: Stay focused There will be a vendor, venue, cake, and dress style for every type of bride. Don’t go in sure of your modern-chic wedding and come out with information for a shabby chic venue with a horse drawn carriage.

207

Keep all of the information It’s good to keep brochures and information from vendors until you know for sure you’re not going to use them.

Wedding Invitation Etiquette SAVE THE DATES: Send out 6-9 months before your big day. Save the Dates are important, especially when planning a wedding during busy travel times, such as summer or the holidays. Save The Dates can be considered a sneak peak at your wedding or double as an engagement announcement. Include the date, location (City/State or Country) and your wedding website (if you have one). Be sure to note that a formal invitation will follow.

THE INVITATION: Send out 6-8 weeks before your big day. (Unless it is a Destination Wedding, then send out 3-6 months in advance) The invitation tells the guests who is getting married, who is hosting, and of course the date, time and location of the ceremony. Basic reception information is conveyed here as well (i.e. Dinner and Dancing to Follow). Leave RSVP info, travel, hotel, map, attire, activities info and website addresses for enclosure cards. Exact wording of your invitation will depend on the formality of your wedding, your culture, and the mood you want to convey.

ENCLOSURE CARDS: Included in the envelope with your invitation. Enclosure cards provide your guests with additional wedding details such as reception location (if not in the same location as the ceremony), directions and/or a map, website information, accommodation details, attire and more. Enclosure card designs are generally similar in design to your RSVP card. If you have several enclosure cards or RSVPs, a band, ribbon or string is a nice presentation and helps keep it all together within the envelope.

RSVP CARD: Included in the envelope with your invitation. The RSVP card gives your guests the ability to indicate to you if they will be able to join you for your big day. The RSVP should include a “reply by” date that is 2-3 weeks prior to the wedding. Any earlier and guests may not know what their schedules are going to allow. All in all, allow enough time for you to get a final head count to your vendors and to finalize your seating chart. If the invitation is addressed to multiple people (like a family of four), you may want to add a line for the guests to indicate the number of people attending, in case not all the invitees can come. If you are offering a plated meal or there are menu options, be sure to include a line to indicate who is having what. Don’t forget to address the RSVP envelope back to yourself (or whomever is handling the guest list) and PUT A STAMP ON IT!

THE ENVELOPE(S): An outside envelope traditionally includes an inner envelope that in turn holds the wedding invitation, RSVP card, and any enclosure cards. The outside envelope is addressed using the formal name(s) and address of your invited guests (Mr. & Mrs. John Smith & Family). If the recipient is allowed a “plus one”, write their name plus “and guest”. The inner envelope is addressed less formally (John, Molly, Brian & Kate). Be sure to include a return address on the outer envelope to prevent any mailing mishaps.

THANK YOU CARDS: Send within 2 months after the big day. A sincere handwritten Thank You to your family and friends for taking the time to celebrate your wedding with you (and of course give you a gift), is not to be overlooked. Order your Thank You cards early to ensure you can send them as quickly as possible following the wedding.
