In Honor of Twilight's New Moon

Not only is every teenage girl obsessed with him, grown women, like us at Exqusite Bride are head over heals for Edward Cullen. The attraction between Edward and Bella is undeniable and builds stronger through each chapter of each book. Badgley Mischka along with a couple other designers have designed concept wedding gowns for Bella Swan. Badgley sees Bella in a structured silhouette with vintage like full-length lace sleeves and bodice, and a high-buttoned neck. Can you see Bella in this?

Ivanka Trump & Jared Kushner Wedding Photo

The couple were married on Sunday evening at Trump National Golf Course in Bedminster, NJ.
Ivanka wore a wedding dress by Vera Wang paired with $130,000 diamond drop earrings from her Ivanka Trump Collection. Ivankas hair looks retro Grace Kelly as does the sheer high neck of her wedding gown. What a timeless look, and Vera Wang was an exquisite choice. Get a celebrity wedding look, make an appointment to meet with one of our bridal stylists at any of our Exquisite Bride locations.

Vera Wang on Alyssa Milino!

Alyssa Milano looks so beautiful! We think her look is so romantic yet fresh and new. Her hair looks so amazing wit the tiered headband that so many of our brides are looking for. Alyssa Milano is wearing a Vera Wang Wedding Gown with a crumb catcher neck line. So many celebrities are donning Vera Wang and we have her collection exclusively at our New Jersey location in Millburn.

Gossip Girl Style Bridesmaids Dress!

If you watch " Gossip Girl " like we do I am sure you loved how Serena Vanderwoodsen looked as a Maid of Honor. On "Gossip Girl"Lily walked down the aisle for the fifth time.
Serena was in charge of planning the wedding to be held at Brooklyn Botanic Garden. But after some last minute drama, the ceremony was held at the Humphreys’ loft instead. Kim Gordon of the rock band Sonic Youth officiated.
I just wanted to let you know that you can have this look too! The Vera Wang Maids Dress Style 22M12 in Midnight color has a very similar look to the one Serena is wearing. They both share a whimsical feel and sweetheart neck line. The Vera Wang Bridesmaids Dress has a bobinette tulle over lame which gives it a flowing, and romantic feeling. This dress also comes in long. To try on the Vera Wang Bridesmaids Dress call 973.379.2222 to reach Exquisite Bridesmaids Department.

The Snippets on Etsy!

When I look for material to blog about, I always turn to Etsy, my favorite website. Generally, everything on this website is handmade, which is what I love about it! I was looking for wedding cake toppers on Etsy a couple months ago, and I came across this amazing vendor, The SnipPets. First of all, not only are their cake figurines adorable, they are also made with lots of love by Carrie in Lexington, Kentucky! The SnipPets is a company devoted to the awareness of spay and neuturing pets! Here is their definition of a SnipPet;

What exactly IS a SnipPet?It's simple. A snip~pet is...

1-PET art created with SNIPS of paper, paint and clay.

2-a PET that has been spayed or neutered...the kindest SNIP of all! Make sure YOUR pet is a SnipPet...it is the only way to stop pet overpopulation and the consequent euthansasia of millions of healthy, adoptable cats and dogs EVERY year!

Carrie custom made these toppers just for me! I sent her a couple inspirational pictures and she knew exactly what I wanted. Take a peak at some of her other cute stuff! (The first one is the one she customized for me!)
