We know that when you think of bootcamps you think of army camouflage and big black boots.  Well, our recent Wedding Bootcamp at Dylan’s Candy Bar conjured a decidedly different image; think more Manolos and Diane Von Furstenberg prints.

Our event featured several of our fabulous bridal vendors including photographer Anthony Vazquez, who shared a growing trend among brides and photographers, which is the “Trash the Dress” photo.  During the “Trash the Dress” photo shoot brides jump into pools or frolic on sandy beaches for some unique candid shots. While this trend may not be for all, we think it’s a fabulous idea!

Another speaker was Bridal Reflections, who is partnering with us this Monday at The Wedding Salon to produce an exciting couture bridal fashion show featuring the likes of David Tutera, Ines Di Santo, Marina K Couture and Stephen Yearick.  Jessica from Bridal Reflections mentioned a hot new trend in bridal design, which is belts. We love how an elegant crystal encrusted belt adds the perfect accent to a simple gown.

The message of the night was that brides should not be afraid of their individuality, personality, and vision, since these are keys to their fairytale wedding.
