New Haven bride!  Where are other New Haven brides getting married? I’m at NHLC, which I fell in love with because its so elegant.  Originally I thought I wanted to get married in New York city, but now I am really glad to be in New Husband because it’s so much less overwhelming to plan a wedding in a smaller city.

I’m new here! I’m getting married at The Gershon Fox Room in Hartford. I was also looking at Bank Street Events in Stamford. Has anyone else heard of them?

Can anyone tell me what their experience has been with The G. Fox Room?

 

Thanks!

YAY  more CT brides! Hi all! My name is Mandy, i live in branford Laughing.

I’ll tell you about my CT wedding plans so far, hopefully they are helpful for you, considering I found a lot of really good deals. I am also looking for some tips too, posted at the end.

Wedding date: July 19,2012

Venue: Anthony’s Ocean View, New Haven CT. only $6,500 for 5.5 hrs, 2-3 open bars, food, cake, chair covers and bows & ceremony included! (half off thursdays!)

Phototography: Bella Pictures, 6 hrs for only $1,100! I caught a sale in June

DJ: Jock in the Box, Todd Powers. He is hysterical! I really hesisated booking a dj, i just didnt feel the connection, but when i met him, i knew right away! 5.5 hrs, only @1,200

Gown(s): Main Gown: Maggie Sottero, Merielle, size 12 in pearl, It’s brand new out of the fall 2012 collection. $1,450. I am IN LOVE. I bought the matching veil as well, $350. Bought it at Bridal Troussous on Main in Branford, worked with Tim, hes amazing. I will be reselling this gown as soon as the wedding is over.

End of the night gown: Sottero & Midgley Adorae size 12 Ivory. Im going to have it bubble hemmed at the knee, so I can kick back and dance a little easier Still looking to find a good used deal! hopefully around $550. Will be reselling after wedding

Bridal Party/Groomsmen: David’s Bridal/ Men’s Wearhouse. Guava dresses,  Groom in white tux, groomsmen in Gray tuxes with guava vests & ties.

Theme: Beach

Colors: Guava, Silver with Gold lining. Looking for used decor for sale.

Hair/Make Up: JoBella Salon, in the Omni Hotel, Christie Garafalo is AMAZING

Honeymoon: 2 weeks in Punta Cana, DR. all inclusive, no kids, beautiful beach, free added honeymoon package. total cost for both the groom and myself is only $7,000. Booked thru AAA, they will match or beat any travel agencies price, and their trip insurance is cheaper. They have travel guides for everyehere in the world.

I am Looking for somewhere in CT that has wooden boards, need a total of about 45 feet long, by 4-5 feet wide, to go under a white runner so I don’t fall on my face on the beach walking down the isle!

Also, trying to figure out where to have the bachlorette party, thought about casino, sports complex, New Haven bars.. can’t decide, what are you doing?

Message me if you have any qustions or tips!

Happy Planning 🙂

@TripleDiamond:  I LIVE IN BRANFORD!!  woohoo!  So exciting!!  Does Jobella do airbrush makeup?  I am searching for a salon the girls and I can go to rather than have someone come to the hotel, but I didn’t know if they did that.

i asked Christie @jobella she said they don’t. I think I have a friend who does though, she travels to events. If that’s something you want more info on I can get you her contact info.

@TripleDiamond:  I am looking to try and find a salon that will do it rather than traveling to me.  I think it’s less common.  Thanks though!!
