After a great weekend of Wedding Partying at The Breakers, we are back in the office and excited to share a recap of this fantastic event with all our brides-to-be!

As guests arrived Sunday morning, The Breakers was magically transformed! Everywhere we looked we saw stunning bridal gowns from Kleinfeld Bridal:

Once the party started, our phenomenal guest speakers offered fabulous insight, including invaluable tips and trends for the big wedding day.

Darcy Miller, editorial director of Martha Stewart Weddings, told brides to make their day personal, focus on the big picture and truly enjoy it! With some more expert advice, adorable, cake connoisseur Sylvia Weinstock showed off pictures of her bright and beautiful wedding cakes, while explaining that the true meaning of a wedding is to celebrate a marriage!

Next up, guests were lucky enough to enjoy a special Q&A sesh with ever-so-talented and o-so-glamorous design duo, Badgley Mischka. When asked about an up and coming trend, Badgley explained, “We really love veils right now….they are very photogenic.” The duo also shared the exciting news that their new Palm Beach boutique, located on famous Worth Avenue was officially open.

Lastly, Kleinfeld Fashion Director (and break out star of TLC’s “Say Yes To The Dress,” Randy Fenoli, received some very loud cheers from the audience. Randy announced that he doesn’t believe in bridezillas, only frightened girls who just want their wedding day to be perfect. Randy also made us blush a little, by saying that The Breakers is the place to come for a destination wedding!
