Top 10 wedding trends for summer 2015

Countdown to a great wedding: Fairmont Chicago wedding specialist Alice Fay shares the top 10 trends for weddings this summer: 1. Craft cocktails: Brides and grooms are interested in featuring creative, custom cocktails. Bitters are a must, and old-school drinks with a modern twist are also popular. Giant ice cubes are a big hit, especially with bourbon drinkers. 2. Beer pairings: Microbrews are very popular in the Chicagoland area as well as other locales around the U.S., so brides and grooms are displaying their favorite labels and pairing them with casual items such as mini pretzel bites, a custom bar mix or passed hors d’oeuvre paired with a mini sampling of the appropriate brew. 3. Pre-ceremony libations: A trend that is becoming more common is greeting guests of an on-location ceremony with a mini glass of bubbly or a non-alcoholic, festively garnished flavored sparkling water. 4. Notable quotables: Thoughtful quotations pertaining to the specific couple about their love story, relationship, favorite movie or song quotes can be printed or written and placed in a frame, on a napkin or on a chalkboard and displayed for all to see and chat about during the reception. 5. Finger foods for cocktail hour: Buffet lines and carrying around plates during cocktail hour are becoming outdated. Instead, serve smaller, passed bites on fun, printed cocktail napkins (maybe with a notable quotable on it!), and why not pair a tiny version of a signature cocktail or favorite microbrew along with them. 6. Coursed dinners: It’s on trend right now to serve a coursed dinner that allows guests to sit, relax, enjoy the beautiful centerpieces and table...

Weight Loss for Brides

Weight Loss for Brides

Drop at Least One Dress Size before Your Wedding Your big day is fast approaching and you’re terrified that you won’t fit into that dream wedding gown you’ve bought.  Follow this simple, yet proven approach for 3-4 weeks before your wedding day and drop at least one dress size. The stress and anxiety that most brides experience as their wedding day approaches can be overwhelming for them.  The amount of preparation involved and the countless number of details needing attention can make it very difficult to eat sensibly and maintain even a modest level of good nutrition.   I can recall countless conversations with brides who are so stressed out in the month or so before their wedding that they abandon all good eating habits and either starve themselves or binge on junk food to handle the stress. Many are genuinely terrified that they’ll be overweight and unattractive on their wedding day or even worse won’t be able to fit into their dream wedding gown. I have been working with a personal trainer for the past 5 years who continually reminds me how just a few simple changes to your daily routine can make a huge difference.  The four basic principles I outline below really do work.  I’ve had personal success using these strategies and continue to follow them on a daily basis.   Many of my clients who have requested my help and followed this advice have had remarkable results.  Start this program at least 3-4 weeks before your wedding day and see for yourself. BEFORE YOU START THIS DIET YOU SHOULD YOU DETOX FIRST TO KICK OFF YOUR PROGRAM! CLICK...
