How do we set up our wedding registry?

The editors of Martha Stewart Weddings have compiled a great wedding registry guide for newly engaged couples. The online piece, titled “Build The Perfect Wedding Registry,” details the how-to’s and what-for’s to help anyone set-up and manage an effective registry.

Whether you’re looking for traditional home-starter items or going off the beaten path and simply soliciting donations for a favorite charity, this guide will let you know how to set up a wedding registry that meets your goals. Couples in need of financial gifts — say for a down payment on a house — or who would like to have their honeymoons funded, also have registry options that many people aren’t aware of.

The editors emphasize these four key points about wedding registries:

  • Registries aren’t just a gift grab — they make your guests’ lives easier.
  • Online is great, but you should still visit a store in person.
  • Stick to two or three stores, ideally one of them national.
  • Rely on family members to spread the word about where you’re registered.

We definitely recommend that you take a look at this informative feature. The complete article can be read online HERE.

Does marriage make you happier?

A study of marital satisfaction has revealed some fascinating facts — and differences — between women and men. Amherst psychology professor Catherine A. Sanderson talked about the results at an event sponsored by The Atlantic. Associate Editor Emma Green, who attended the eye-opening lecture, shared Sanderson’s major observations on the magazine’s website.

If you’re a bride-to-be, look for your perfect wedding dress with a spring in your step because the biggest takeaway is this nugget of news: As a group, men who are married are happier than men who aren’t. In fact, Sanderson says that point doesn’t change regardless of who the men are married to — be they childhood sweethearts or mail-order brides. The simple fact is married men are happier, live longer and earn more than unmarried men.

On the other hand, Sanderson explains, “Marriage for women increases happiness — if the marriage is good. A high-quality marriage for women boosts their happiness above women who are single. But a marriage that is unhappy for women decreases satisfaction below women who are single. For women, the quality of the marriage has a major impact.”

Green’s article also addresses the way our happiness is affected by children. To read the entire fascinating piece, click HERE.

What are the top wedding colors of 2014?

If you’re searching for the trendiest tones for your bridesmaids dresses, reception dress, accessories and more, the Pantone Color Institute, the world’s leading color authority, has the information you need to pull your look together. For more than two decades the company has issued its Fashion Color Report revealing the season’s palette according to the top fashion designers. The guide for spring 2014 continues the tradition.

On its website, Pantone observes, “Designers take a modern twist on the traditional for spring 2014 by pairing soft pastels with vivid brights to create a colorful equilibrium. Inspired by a mixture of blooming flowers, travels abroad and strong, confident women, designers use color to refresh, revive and defy conventional wisdom.”

The colors of spring 2014 are Placid Blue, Violet Tulip, Hemlock, Paloma, Sand, Freesia, Cayenne, Celosia Orange, Radiant Orchid and Dazzling Blue.

According to Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, “This season, consumers are looking for a state of thoughtful, emotional and artistic equilibrium. While this need for stability is reflected in the composition of the palette, the inherent versatility of the individual colors allows for experimentation with new looks and color combinations.”

Our selection overflows with stunning dresses in a wide spectrum of styles, colors and cuts. Some of the lines we carry will even personalize the bridesmaid dress you choose with key design options.

When you tell your maids the style you’ve settled on, encourage them to order their dresses directly from us. Without this request, for simplicity’s sake many out-of town bridesmaids will simply head for the nearest bridal chain store to purchase their garments. Since their dresses will not be constructed with fabric from the same dye lot as our order, the color may not match as closely as you’d like.

To help with this, New York Bride & Groom will coordinate directly with your out-of-town bridesmaids. This will make it easy for them and allow us to place your entire order at one time. This will guarantee uniformity in the color and ensure that no one purchases the wrong style by mistake.
