Oscar Style Inspiration

Last night’s Oscars were full of style inspiration for your Connecticut wedding. Many of the gowns seemed like they could easily switch from red carpet to a wedding with almost no changes.

One of the best gowns was Jennifer Carpenter’s Dior Couture gown. The Best Actress winner wore a pale pink and white dress with a gorgeous layered look. It had a long fitted bodice that went softly into a mermaid-style skirt.

Another bridal-ready outfit was Amy Adams’ Oscar de la Renta gown. With a pale blue tone, the full, feathery skirt and sparkling bodice would be perfect for a spring or summer bride.

There were also plenty of dresses that would be great for the bridal party. With lots of red dresses on show, it might be the big color trend for the end of 2013.

Whether you loved Jennifer Carpenter’s dress or want something more unconventional, you’re certain to find plenty of bridal inspiration at our wedding shows. They include everything a Connecticut bride needs to plan her big day.

Wedding Vendor Spotlight: Fred Astaire Dance Studios

If you’re planning your big day, you’re probably already thinking about what you’ll do for your first dance. Whether or not you and your fiance are experienced dancers, you’ll be sure to benefit from a few dance lessons.

Fred Astaire Dance Studios is one of the many great wedding vendors you’ll be able to meet at our shows. The Fairfield County company has three convenient locations, with studios in Norwalk, Ridgefield, and Brookfield.

The instructors at each studio are ready to teach you a few moves for your first dance. Taking dance lessons can be a great way of having a date night with your fiance and stepping away from the stress of getting everything set for your wedding day.

Of course, dance lessons are also a great way to keep fit. As a fun exercise, it’s a favorite for brides looking to tone up before their wedding.

Dance lessons aren’t just for the bride and groom, though. A growing trend is to have a dance instructor on hand at the wedding to teach guests a few moves!
