Part of what we love about our Philly-based buds at BHLDN is their selection of gorgeous gowns, so-fun gifts and accessories, of course—but one of the other things we love about the label is the fabulous team of stylists that make shopping at BHLDN such a joy. Online shopping can be iffy no matter what kind of clothing you’re buying, but when it’s your wedding dress, the risk is that much greater.
Today we’re featuring the wedding of Erica and Brian, who’s New Year’s Eve nuptials featured snow flurries, cheesesteaks and a surprise visit from the Mummers. Check it out here.

WHO: The Claridge Hotel
WHAT: The Sweethearts Show
WHEN: Sunday, February 14, 12-3:30 pm
WHERE: Park Place & Boardwalk, Atlantic City
WHY: Experts from all corners of the wedding industry—photography, entertainment, travel, beauty, invitations, cakes and so much more—will be on hand at this Valentine’s Day event in Atlantic City. You’ll have a chance to check out their offerings and chat with them about ideas for your Big Day.
Each year, usually sometime in December, we look forward to the day that Pantone pops back on our radar—they declare which hue (or multiple hues) earned the title of Color of the Year, and we frantically scour the web for all the ways in which you can incorporate said color into your wedding palette.
The Color(s) of the Year announcement is, of course, the most anticipated among us wedding/fashion people, but it’s not the only award the color authority is dishing out: Pantone also names the top ten colors for each season, and those shades can certainly inspire your Big Day scheme as well.
The official Wedding Wednesday event goes from 6-8pm in Ballroom B of the Pennsylvania Convention Center, but we’ll be there early (starting at 5pm!) for a pre-party celebration with live music, cocktails and a bunch of fun honeymoon giveaways from Cruise Planners.
As for the main event, we have lots of exciting things in store. During the evening, you’ll get to…
There’s a whole host of reasons why we love social media, but perhaps our favorite part about Facebook, Twitter and Instagram is that they give us an opportunity to discover and connect with new local wedding vendors who are not currently on our radar. In fact, just yesterday we were introduced (via Facebook) to Chester County-based calligrapher Dianna Crystle, who recently started her own business, The Paperly Studio—we can’t wait to tell you about the services she offers for weddings.
Whenever a travel-related article (of the particularly dreamy sort) crosses our desks, our minds immediately switch into honeymoon mode. No matter the topic—whether it’s vacation spots inspired by Hollywood films or the most amazing resort pools you’ll ever lay eyes on—you can count on us to consider whether it’d make a fab honeymoon—and to share with you if the answer is yes. (The more options to choose from the better, right?)
If you’re among the fraction of our readers who has yet to get engaged but is eagerly awaiting a ring (yes, we know you’re out there), this new study may give you some insight into whether or not a proposal in on the horizon. Weddington Way, the keeper of all wedding-related stats, did a little digging into the engagement trends of couples around the country, and the data says a lot about when guys are most likely to pop the question.
If you’re like the majority of newlywed couples, there’s a good chance that your honeymoon (or at least part of it) will be spent on a beach somewhere. Beaches are, after all, a universal symbol of relaxation, which makes the sand, sun and ocean water the perfect companions during your first few married days.
