{real parties} Kerry’s Bachelorette Featured on The Bach

It’s always fun to take a trip down memory lane…especially when it involves warm weather, the beach and an awesome time spent with people you love! So it was no exception to relive Kerry’s bachelorette party from last summer on Shelter Island.

I’m thrilled to share with you this “Real Bachelorette” feature on the ultimate bachelorette party-planning site, The Bach! They captured our weekend getaway perfectly — mapping out every step of our trip. Be sure to check out the full feature here.

The Bach really is a genius idea. It’s a one-stop-bachelorette-planning-shop for all you bridesmaids out there asking yourselves where to even begin to plan a bachelorette party. Pick your city. Browse venues, restaurants and activities. Create your itinerary. Email your guests. Such a simple idea – and such a great site! Be sure to check it out when planning your next bachelorette bash!The Bach Postcard

{event recap} Brides & Bubbly

We pulled off another successful event last night — Thanks in part to a team of incredible women! The brides (and bridesmaids) of Hoboken joined us for a glass of prosecco, a cookie (or two) and to learn about the amazing local services of Luxe Face and Body and Work it Out.

Finding good and affordable bridal makeup services can be tricky — so last night’s brides were psyched to learn about Luxe’s services. We had brides signing up on the spot!

We also know you’re sometimes looking for an alternative to the boozy bachelorette bash, which is why we at Work it Out created the new Bachelorette Kit — a 90 minute class tailored to you and your girls, complete with post-class elixirs and snacks. The perfect way to kick off your festivities! We even raffled one off last night!

No event is complete without a sweet treat or something to take home — and Sweet Dani B’s couture cookies were no exception last night. Be sure to keep her mind for your favors!

{local vendors} Sweet Dani B

I know I’ve mentioned before how great it is to see the small businesses of Hoboken supporting each other — But I’ve just got to say how much I love Hoboken!

This new-to-me vendor is nothing short of sweet… I’m so happy I get to share Sweet Dani B with all of you today and spotlight her sweet couture cookies! Take a look — They’re {almost} too pretty to eat!

IMG_3353When Dani found out about our one year anniversary, she basically jumped at the chance to create this gorgeous, and oh-so-appropriate, cookie box.

IMG_3360I just about squealed when she surprised me with these. I mean how adorable are the ballerina and bride?! Not to mention, the little details – and edible glitter!

Whether you’re wedding planning, shower planning or party planning, be sure to check out Sweet Dani B. She’ll create custom cookies as favors, desserts or wedding cake toppers! Besides the couture cookies, Dani also does custom paper goods.

Dani will be joining us at our next Brides & Bubbly — So if you’re in town, come to Luxe Face and Body next Wednesday, September 17 at 7pm for a sweet affair!

Thank you so much for the special cookies, Dani — You made my day!
