Modern Luxury Bride June 2015 Issue

Last week Heather’s Glen staffers toasted the new Modern Luxury Brides June 2015 issue at Artisans Restaurant.  We enjoyed gold-flaked champagne, foie gras (a first for me!), and other French treats while we networked the sunny evening away.

Musical Touches

This weekend we saw some fun musical touches for a couple of musicians getting married.

I love these tambourines for their getaway!

They also did a ring-warming ceremony.  Their minister prayed over their rings, and then passed them to their loved ones to each hold in their hands and pray over.




Love Grows Here

Heather’s Glen was thrilled to be styled by Heather Benge Events and photographed by Elisheva Golani Photography for a feature in Southern Bride magazine.  Issues have fiiiiinally hit the newsstands (seriously – waiting on this was difficult), and so we are so pumped to share with you the gorgeous images!

Consider hiring an experienced photographer for your wedding, whether it’s for an elopement for just the two of you, or a 200 guest-list shebang!

Parisian Wedding Style

Madison’s sister is studying abroad in Paris right now (you remember Madison, right?  Her dream wedding is here, remember?), and just talking about her trip has sent us on our own little Parisian kick here at the office.  We’ve been serving macarons to our appointments, offering champagne on tours, and even giggling about the Bridesmaids scene where Kristen Wiig has to get on the horse to attend the over-the-top Parisian bridal shower!  So next time you come by the office, if La Vie En Rose is on repeat, you’ll know why.

Wedding Rompers

 

Rompers.  They’re everywhere and they’re adorable.  Unfortunately, my post-baby belly prevents me from wearing them for fear I’d look…pregnant.  But since we’re not talking about me, we’re talking about you, and your wedding: would you wear one to your wedding?  This could be a gorgeous option for brides going for a more casual fete, or even a destination wedding.

Wizard of Oz Bridal & Event Networking Group (B.E.N.G.)

Last week, Lela and Shelley attended a B.E.N.G. event (Bridal and Event Networking Group) of Montgomery County at Bentwater Country Club.  The theme was “Wizard of Oz,” as evidenced by these amazing cakes and emerald linens with gold accents.

Sequin Bridesmaid Dresses

 

 

You can often tell the year a wedding took place by the attire worn by the wedding party in a photo.  In pictures of my parents’ wedding, it is clearly early 1970’s because of the long-sleeved bridesmaid dresses with collars that are practically turtlenecks.  I don’t even know what to call that style gown, but my mom was wearing it too, in white.  The 80s and 90s seemed to be taken over by taffeta, and then the 2000s were full of satin.  This year, however, might be the year for sequins!  It’s amazing that a bridal party can be wearing sequins and it not feel like the rest of the event has to be black tie.  The sequin gowns we’ve seen have been gold, champagne, and in neutral tones overall.  Here’s some inspiration for you.

Note that lovely nail polish with it!

#THEKNOTROCKSHOUSTON

 

The Heather’s Glen team enjoyed a beautiful event by The Knot on Tuesday night.  We received the royal treatment as we rang a bell for champagne, were instructed to “crown thyself,” and networked the night away with the best food and drinks around (hello lavender martinis and macaron ice cream sandwiches).

Ring for Champagne

“Ring for Champagne” service!
