A MILITARY SALUTE TO THE BRIDE

Bridal Reflections in New York is a wonderful place where dreams come true for military brides. And, today, your dream can come true! If you are a bride in the military or the fiance' of a soldier, you can visit the salon at 260 5th Avenue, New York, NY and get the gown of your dreams at no cost. Here are two stories of brides who's wedding were made more beautiful by Bridal Reflections.

Amanda Tipton from North Carolina

Amanda and her fiancé Thomas met while both serving in the Marine Corps. That night that she was being promoted to Sergeant, she went out to celebrate at a marina and met Thomas. They dated for three years and now have an 11 week old child. The proposal was at a restaurant in Washington DC they were both fond of. They visited it on July 4th, where the owner of the restaurant proceeded to take them to the rooftop that overlooks the capital building and the national mall. He proposed to her there. Thomas has served in Afghanistan and is now reenlisting, so he will be going back soon.

Another lovely bride who's dream of a perfect wedding gown is


Maryann
Harrison from New York

Maryan
n has served in the Army for 14 years. She and her fiancé Sherwin have been dating for four years. They met at a lounge, which she was urged to visit by her sister, as she was always more of a homebody and did not want to go out. They have dated for four years. Right before she was about to be mobilized to go to Kuwait, she was coming home from the airport. He purposely did not pick her up and made her take a taxi. When she got home he acted like he was sleeping, so she decided to take a shower. As she always does after a shower, she opened the medicine cabinet and the ring was waiting for her.
These are only two of the many happy endings that Bridal Reflections is responsible for. The salon is full of glorious gowns for you and your wedding party. The seamstresses are ready to make your dress perfect for you and the staff is anxious to help you pick that perfect, once in a lifetime dress. Bridal Reflections is a family business that is instrumental in community and charitable events. They have been a long time partner in Brides Across America and other organizations. Thanks to Michael Micari and Kerri Hill for this event and for the opportunity to let you all know about their great work- and their beautiful store!

BRIDES AGAINST BREAST CANCER































I received an email from my friend, Naomi Raiselle, of Generations Cinema Stories, about an important event and a more important cause. She was filming fittings for a fashion show at Bloomingdale's in Chestnut Hill, MA. The dresses, from Kleinfeld's in New York and the models, ages 24-54, all breast cancer survivors. The event was to benefit Brides Against Breast Cancer. If you couldn't be there, perhaps you will consider donating your gown to Brides Against Breast Cancer. The organization cleans and re-sells gowns to brides and the proceeds go to the cause, helping to make wishes come true for brides facing this life- threatening diagnosis. What a wonderful way to use your good fortune to make someone else's dream come true! Thanks Naomi for letting me know about this event and thanks to all of you generous brides for sharing yourselves with those in need. If you are in the Philadelphia area on June 17th, you may want to attend the charity bridal event at the Radisson Valley Forge.


SCAMMED!

Don't let this happen to you! Last night I watched this story on NBC 10 in Philadelphia and had to share it with you this morning. When you go looking for an economical way of getting those amazing photos of your wedding, beware of wedding packages that sound too good to be true. And, be aware of the fact that ANYONE can build a web site and steal photos from other places to post as their own. Get references, ask other couples you know that got married who they used and- hire a planner to help you. There are ways to get beautiful wedding pictures without spending a fortune and a planner can sort through the options. Watch this video and listen to the advice. Your wedding day is not the time to cut corners with scammers.
