September Brides & Bubbly

photo-7Looks like we’ve made this little event of mine a monthly thing! Know not all you readers are local, but if you are, hope you’ll join me and Work It Out for our September Brides & Bubbly at Luxe Face and Body.

It will be an evening of samples, sips & sweet treats! We’ll also be raffling off the chance to host a Bachelorette Party at Work It Out — a personalized 90 minute class for you and your girls complete with healthy snacks and elixirs. If you really wanted to, you could opt for a barre class with yours truly 😉

Doors will be open from 7 – 9 pm, so stop by at any time!

{event recap} Brides & Bubbly

Last night’s Brides & Bubbly was another big success! I love bringing together local small businesses and meeting new brides in the throws of wedding planning — Those were the highlights for me!

The evening started with a rockin’ yoga class in the Treehouse — Followed by post-practice mini facials with Rodan + Fields two-step process. While sipping bubbly and raspberry white iced tea from Do You Tea, guests browsed our shopping room and chatted with Elana from Super Color Fashionistic about styling tips for everything from your rehearsal dinner to wedding guest attire!

We also introduced the WiO Bachelorette Kit — The perfect way to kick off any girl’s weekend!!

The second Brides & Bubbly event was such a success! It’s really an honor to be able to collaborate with such talented women – and I have so many people to thank!

Niki, the owner of Up & Out – Hoboken’s own blowout bar, graciously opened her doors to all of us for the evening. She herself did a demo of her bridal hair services (check out those gorgeous curls in the photos below) — and had their resident makeup artist, Jillian, demo her bridal makeup services.

Jacquelyn, of Eventfully, Jacquelyn, was there to offer her wedding planning services — and I, along with the other women of Work It Out, promoted our new bridal packages, the “I Do” kits (full list of package details here).

I’ll quick rambling and have the pictures tell the rest! Thank you to everyone who attended – and hope to see you at the next event!

How to Get a Restaurant Bridal Shower Ready

LOVE balloons via Etsy

Restaurants are one of the easiest places to host a bridal shower because they basically will do everything for you. However, it’s always good to add your own personal touch to a space — and make it feel extra special for the guest of honor.

And guests just love adorable décor! Stumped on what to bring? Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered.

Confetti. It comes in every design and color under the sun. Sprinkle it down the center of your tables for a pop of color.

Mylar balloons. Spell out B-R-I-D-E, M-R-S or L-O-V-E in large metallic letter balloons. They easily fill up open space and make for adorable Instagrams!

Homemade floral arrangements. Ask the hostess if you can bring in your own flowers. Purchase small vases at the Dollar Store, add a coat of spray paint and pick up flowers from your local grocery store! Flowers can be pricey and this is a great way to save some pennies.

Favors. There are so many cute things you can gift your guests – from sweet treats to bubbly to nail polish. Add a little thank you tag and place at each table setting — Again, this will dress up your table and your guests will love the personal touch! Our rule of thumb — Choose a theme and pick something your guests can definitely use (or nibble on the way home)!

Be sure to check out the rest of my post on Work It Out’s blog (here) for Hoboken’s hottest restaurants to throw a shower!

Fancy Friday

Happy Friday! It’s always nice when you can say that after 4 days instead of 5, right?! Hope everyone had a nice, short week!

Need some fun Friday reading? I have a few links to share.

1. Seems like the tulle skirt is really making its way into women’s wardrobes (evidence above). I’m loving it! Definitely check out McKenna’s bridal shower post here.

2. Speaking of bridal showers… Remember this post?! Well she’s getting married today! Congrats Melissa!

3. And I just can’t help but share this amazing feature of Work It Out in Well+Good yesterday. Go WiO! Go Hoboken! So proud to be a part of this team!
