Wedding Decor By BHLDN

You probably heard by now that one of your favorite (certainly my favorite) retail brands – Anthropologie – has made a foray into the wedding market with a new brand that quickly made headlines – BHLDN. BHLDN is not your typical bridal boutique. It offers vintage inspired gowns, jewelry and accessories with an old time charm and timeless craftsmanship. Today BHLDN announced that they will not only dress the bride, but starting tomorrow they will dress your event too. It’s difficult to predict what wedding design elements they plan to carry, but if the furniture and decor at Anthropologie is of any indication (Anthropologie accoutrements are already being used quite often for wedding decorations and favors), BHLDN’s ornaments and wedding accessories hold plenty of promise.

Running To See Royalty

The Talmud in Brachos (58a) brings a statement from R. Yochanan that a person should run to see a king, even a not Jewish king. There’s even a special blessing that one can recite upon seeing a king. (Blessed is the One who gave some of His honor to his creations.) In wake of the upcoming royal wedding of Prince William & Catherine Middleton millions of people around the world have been doing just that. The internet is abuzz with any and every detail of the wedding ceremony and reception and the planning process. The royal wedding, as it is officially called in the media, will be covered live on the monarchy’s own YouTube channel starting 10 AM Friday April 29th.

Even though the idea of royalty has long been an outdated one and the monarchs that still remain, like the British monarchy, are mostly symbolic, from the incredible attention that this wedding of William and Catherine has been gaining, it seems that the idea of royalty still retains some of its glamor and glory.

The kind of a wedding that this couple is about to have is certainly only possible with royalty – the elaborate details and the almost unbridled expenditure that has gone into every element of the wedding procession is indeed so rare that it is not surprising that it has grabbed the attention of so many people around the world, especially those of us ordinary people trying to plan a wedding on a tight budget.

Here are some of the elements that went into the royal wedding planning process:

Getting the Cavalry ready:

Special Commemorative china:

The Royal Pastries:
Prince William and Miss Catherine Middleton have chosen Leicestershire-based cake designer Fiona Cairns to create their wedding cake.

In addition, the couple have also asked McVitie’s Cake Company to create a chocolate biscuit cake for the reception at Buckingham Palace. The chocolate biscuit cake will be made from a Royal Family recipe and was specially requested by Prince William.

The Royal Choir:

The reception will be hosted by the queen at Buckingham palace:

Coney ‘Aisle’and Avenue Brooklyn

Frum shoppers in Brooklyn know Coney Island Avenue as the central commercial street in the neighborhood. In recent times, along with the many other kosher food stores and frum clothing stores, a number of bridal gown stores have opened up shop on the avenue – all within a few blocks of each other. The latest addition to the Coney Island Avenue bridal portfolio – ‘Tznius Princess’ (at Coney and J), makes it a total of six bridal dress shops that can easily be scooped out in a single day visit.

A bridal gown purchase or a gemach find is not an easy task for the frum bride. With the current wedding styles dominated by strapless gowns, it’s not always easy to find the dream dress. Not to mention that not every strapless can be ‘built up’. Often times the materials and the cut of the dress make it impossible to build the gown up in a way that looks stylish and natural. The ability to check out six bridal stores in one visit, simplifies the hunt for the perfect dress.

In addition to Tznius Princess, the other stores in the vicinity are:

Augenbraun’s (between K & L)
Bridal Direct (between P & Quentin)
Miri (between M & N)
Raquel (corner of N)
Esti’s (between P & Quentin)

And only a few blocks off Coney on Avenue M, you’ll find the seventh bridal boutique in the area – Lavan Bridal.

Happy Shopping!
