Merging of Families

Beautiful Day Photography recently captured this lovely wedding up on Sunset Blvd. The space is needless to say, pretty special, but even more special is the way the couple incorporated the child into their event. Making your kids feel like they are joining in the union with you is so important and people often ask us how they can honor them.'s one great way.Jerry, the six year old who stole the show, even tried to break the glass at the end of the ceremony!Congratulations to the happy family and thanks to Laura from Beautiful Day Photography for sharing!

Vera's New Jewelry Collection

Vera Wang not only debuted her fabulous fashions last month in NYC, but she shared with us her brilliant new blinged-out jewelery collection. Not sure how many will walk down the aisle but all could be worn out for a night on the town, at your rehearsal or on your city honeymoon. Love each and every piece!

Paperwink is our newest discovery in all things fabulously green, wedding, and if you haven't guessed by now...we love packaging and design and these gals nailed it!

The dynamic duo, Tara and Darcey, started this company after they met while designing for the fab brand, Knock Knock. And now they are bringing their design expertise to the world of weddings.

First up on our favs list is this Besheret letterpress design. The suite conveys the notion of fate - Besheret, that brought the couple together and the fate that would bring their loved ones together on their wedding day. The hand-drawn bulb on the activities card is a map that lets guests know about the different activities to do in town, as well as offers guests insight into the couple's relationship.

Once at the wedding, guests were even given favor boxes with matching bulbs in them. Can you say genius?!?!?!

So instead of sharing a fabulous themed wedding today, we thought we'd scare you a bit (or delight you depending on your taste). Check out this themed and colored hair dye (for hair down there). That's right, add another step in your beauty regime ladies, and be sure to use Betty to be perfectly color coordinated before your big day!

It's Always Sunny...

That's right, two of our favorite tv folks said I Do last month (and of course came by The Bridal Bar before hand for some inside scoop on hot vendors and resources).

Kaitlin Olson and Rob McElhenney met on the set of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and recently wed at a very sunny ceremony at Saddlerock Ranch in Malibu.

With the help of the amazingly talented Lisa G from Details Event Planning, their decor was to die for! And the photos from the fab Red Loft Studios are equally as beautiful. The yummy, yummy cake was created by the fabulous Fantasy Frostings. Well done and congrats to the newlyweds!

J. Concepts Productions Promo!

J. Concepts Movie Productions is a Northern and Southern California based video company that we just adore. The owner Jami is a delight to work with and we are having so much fun getting to know her and her work, that we decided to share a snippet with you. But better than just share, we've got to give you something to talk a disc of 300 stills captured from your video to use as crisp and picture perfect memories from your big day (mention Bridal Bar of course). Happy viewing!

Up next in our fashion recap is Badgley Mischka. This season BM had lots of plunging v-necks and of course their signature glamour and beading. Definitely a black tie affair will come calling for these gowns. For more photos and video footage straight from the runway, check out the Get Married Fashion Pages.

Nick and Danielle

We love to see a happy couple say "I Do" after a visit to The Bridal Bar. This fabulous wedding took place just north of Santa Barbara, outdoors on a vineyard. Captured by the talented Kristen Beinke Photography, she shared with us some of the special details from the day.

Danielle wrote the to-die-for song, "Unwritten" for Natasha Bedingfield so it was only fitting that the couple be serenaded by the singer at their wedding. But that wasn't even the best part; take a look at the tiny details right down to little nests and eggs under a glass bell in the floral treatments. This wedding is the definition of outdoor, understated elegance. Just beautiful!Congrats Nick and Danielle!
