An Evening of Glitz & Glam in Winter Park

Last Thursday, Solutions in Winter Park hosted an amazing event for our brides and top central Florida wedding vendors. The party was a huge success! The whole salon was decked out with our black, white and red "Old Hollywood Glam" motif. The girls at the store even wore matching feather headbands to match! All in all, it was a great evening for all who attended.

Invitations were specially created for the event by Lindsey Luxa of Dragonfly Custom Design, while Weddings Unique helped with the planning process. Flourish created the most AMAZING floral headpieces for our mannequins while a jazz quartet from Beautiful Music and DJ Scott Messina entertained us all. The delicious menu was catered by Cuisiniers and for dessert we had yummy treats from Sweet, Bake me a Cake, and Cookie Cousins. Damon Tucci and Shutterbooth did an awesome job capturing the night's moments on film while Kirby Rentals provided the goods and One Way Valet helped us through a rainy evening. Many thanks to ALL of our vendors as we couldn't have done it without them!

Top 10 Advice on finding the DRESS!

  • Number One Rule: Be open minded! What you think reminds you of your grandmother's dress on the hanger, may in fact be the dress of your dreams.
  • Bring someone that knows your style better than their own. I'm sure the groom doesn't want to see you in something that your bestfriend would wear on her wedding day
  • DON'T PURCHASE YOUR DRESS ONLINE! You miss out on the whole experience.
  • Don't worry what the groom will think. If he loves you, he will love what you pick.
  • Have fun! Remember that you have been dreaming of this day since you were five. Don't let the decision put a cloud over your head
  • If you hate the little bow on the dress, ask the consultant if you can order it Chances are you can. Keep in mind (contrary to what the magazines always say) there might be a charge for it. It won't lower the cost of the dress.
  • Price vs. Love: If you love the dress, GO FOR IT! Don't settle for less on what your wearing for your big day. You can always take some of the budget from the centerpieces and so on. No one will know and we won't tell.
  • Research designers online and make a scrap book of styles that you like. Do keep in mind, that it may all change when you start trying on.
  • Save the group shopping for the mall. This should be a personal experience that you should only share with one or two.
  • When you find it, you find it. Don't second guess yourself or you will pick your second favorite.
