Wednesday, October 30th, 2013

Even though the winter season is only just beginning, there is still always something springy to look forward to!

Baublebar’s New Wedding Line

Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013

Visited BaubleBar’s website recently? If you have, it’s possible you’ve noticed a fabulous new tab. Baublebar decided to add a Wedding line to its already expansive fashion jewelry selection, and we are super excited!

Baublebar sells wedding jewelry for every kind of bride and wedding on its website. Whether you are looking for trendy statement pieces, or more subtle classy ones, Baublebar has fashion jewelry for everyone. Baublebar Wedding offers a large selection of bright gems or classic pearls at affordable prices.

Its new wedding tab includes jewelry for both the bride and the bridal party, as well as gift items. Could it get any better? We don’t think so.






Weddington Way

Tuesday, February 19th, 2013

We recently read about a new online bridesmaid dress retailer called Weddington Way in the Huffington Post. What’s great about this site is that you and your bridesmaids can search through many different brands by color and share your selections via your personal showroom. Each maid will have access to the showroom and can comment on the styles that she likes. Finally a website that allows for the bridesmaids to pick and choose and agree on a dress that works for everyone! What a perfect solution to the busy bride whose bridal party is located all over the country, or even the globe.




Romantic Window Display Part II

Monday, February 4th, 2013

Our Plumed Serpent window display was a huge success! It was the perfect combination of Anthropologie meets French chic. We chose a super cool blush Anne Barge ombre skirt and lace corset, to serve as the backdrop for our display. We draped white heart garland across the space and hung a silver glitter L.O.V.E  sign in front of two ivory velvet fabric pieces. We brought in a gray upholstered “Malibu” French chair from GreenRoom and placed a white ruffled clutch and long gloves over the side. To finish it off, we placed a pink and white plate of macarons on a small table with a bottle of champagne and two glasses. Belle!

Keep in mind these photos were taken with our iPhone’s, but you get the idea…




Romantic Window Display

Thursday, January 31st, 2013

Tomorrow Bellafare is installing a window display at the lovely bridal boutique, Plumed Serpent, in Westport, CT. We chose a stunning, one-of-a-kind blush Spanish Tulle Monique Lhuillier wedding dress, to base our design off of. We are going for a romantic Valentine’s Day inspired theme with a  French infleunce, as the display will be up through the end of February.

Stay tuned for the photos of the actual installation next week…

We first saw Jackie on Shark Tank and even though she didn’t get picked up on the show, we thought her idea was genius.

Featuring dresses from designers including Oscar de la Renta, Monique Lhuillier, Elie Saab, Vera Wang, Marchesa, Lanvin, Carolina Herrera, Reem Acra, Phillip Lim, Alberta Ferretti, Temperley, and more, each dress is hand picked by Jackie and carefully approved and inspected by her team.

Sonoma Wedding

Friday, September 21st, 2012

Today, we are featuring a gorgeous wedding from our friend, Kelly Kreig Blythe, who got married at the beautiful Cline Cellars in Sonoma, California. There were so many little details that made this wedding extra special and personal. From the lace “Mr.” “Mrs.” chair covers, to the vintage getaway car, to the “Here Comes the bride” pennant flag, this wedding had so many adorable elements. We love the peach florals, hand calligraphed escort cards, and whimsical cake topper. Congrats Kelly and Trevor!

Kelly and Trevor’s wedding was recently featured on Elizabeth Anne Designs. This stunning wedding was photographed by Troy Grover Photographers and planned by Holiday Weddings.
