Below I posted some of the design that brides are wearing to incorporate  some of their personality on there special day.

Excellence in Journalism

A couple of weeks ago was the annual San Diego Press Club ceremony for Excellence in Journalism. This press club is proud to be one of the largest in the U.S. with nearly 400 members.  There were approximately 900 entries that were judged by other press clubs around the U.S. and one of San Diego Style Weddings writers placed with two of her articles. Kathryn Bechen with Kathryn Bechen Ink won first place for her humor article, What's Your Wedding Planning HOT Button, published by San Diego Style Weddings and won third place for her feature article, Ecological: Make Your Big Day Big Time Green, published by San Diego Style Weddings. We are so lucky to be able to work with such a talented writer. Be sure to visit her website to see many other writings and her new article in the new issue of San Diego Style Weddings.

Going to Market

Both dresses are from Vera Wang Spring 2010 collection

 This last weekend was a big weekend for the bridal dress shops around the world. It was time to go to market! This is pretty much equivalent to Fashion Week. All the big bridal gown dress designers have parties and runways shows to introduce their new collections for the fall and some spring of 2010. Below are some of the pictures of the gowns. There’s definitely a trend of a higher neckline coming back. For more information about some of the dress and when they hit the boutiques, click here.

The two dresses above are from Amsale Spring 2010 collection


To the left we have Christos and to the right we have  Reverie by Priscilla of Boston

above we have the always gorgeous Monique Lhuillier Spring 2010

A dash of inspiration

I can barely get this blog out because I am still so excited from last weekend’s event. Two Wedding Mecca’s collided in San Diego on Sunday at the Carlsbad Costco...publisher of San Diego Style Weddings and the creator herself...Martha Stewart! It all started last Thursday when Dena ran through the office to tell us that she heard Martha was coming to town, and yes we are on a first name basis now. All the girls in the office nearly fell out of there chairs except for myself, I thought it might be a nasty rumor that would get my hopes up for an even bigger fall. So I did what any other girl would do...I took it to the twitter, someone had to know something. I never heard anything and so I put up my protected guard as if I never heard such allegations. Then, early Sunday morning I get a text from Dena..."MARTHA IS IN THE BUILDING!" Dena waited in line for about two hours to come face to face with the woman who gives us so much inspiration to brides and vendors all around the world. I posted some pictures below for you to check out. Enjoy!

Notice the San Diego Style Weddings Business cards in hand...we are always ready to network!


People waiting for Martha!
