December 15, 2011

 Men’s Wearhouse Partners with Vera Wang to Launch Black by Vera Wang

  HOUSTON – December 15, 2011 – The Men’s Wearhouse (NYSE: MW) and Vera Wang announce an exclusive partnership to launch Black by Vera Wang, a new tuxedo rental collection.

 Designed by renowned fashion industry icon, Vera Wang, and exclusively available at Men’s Wearhouse, one of the largest men’s specialty apparel retailers in the US, the Black by Vera Wang collection will provide an exceptional quality of rental tuxedos at an accessible price point.

 The inaugural collection will initially offer two modern tuxedo styles, with one style in black and the second style in gray. Both tuxedos will feature a contemporary fit, via a slightly shorter 30.5″ coat length (versus the 31″ standard length) and narrow 2 1/2″ lapel, which will provide a modern, sophisticated look. Ultra-lightweight fabrication will allow for a superior drape and luxe feel.

 The black tuxedo will feature a two-button notch, grosgrain lapel with side vents. Flat-front pant will feature a grosgrain stripe detail. The gray style will include a two-button, satin edge notch lapel with side vents and a classic, flat-front pant.

 The opening price point for the rental collection is $219.99 for a complete outfit, with both styles offered in standard fit, slim fit and “big & tall” sizing.

 “For more than twenty years, I have shared my design vision with women around the world, so it is exciting to now have the opportunity to share that with men as well,” said Vera Wang. “With an exceptional reputation as one the largest men’s specialty retailers, Men’s Wearhouse was a natural retail partner for the Black by Vera Wang collection.”

 “As one of the world’s most celebrated designers, we are pleased to partner with Vera Wang for the Black by Vera Wang collection,” said Doug Ewert, CEO of Men’s Wearhouse, Inc. “Men’s Wearhouse has always been a leader in the men’s specialty retail industry, and this exclusive partnership will allow us to continue providing our customers with high quality and reputable brands.”

 The Black by Vera Wang collection will launch exclusively in all Men’s Wearhouse retail stores in the US and Moores Clothing for Men retail stores in Canada in late Spring 2012.

Tip Tuesday: Photojournalism

December 6, 2011

The Story of Your Day

Talk to your photographer about the story you want to convey in your wedding album.

Whether your wedding is an outdoor, casual event or a black-tie affair, every couple wants the memories of their wedding to be picture perfect.  Photojournalism is the buzz word for modern weddings.  Forget the staged shots.  Photographers now focus on telling the story of your special day as it unfolds.  From the pre-ceremony preparations to the last dance, they capture the events with wedding photography/video that records the unique emotions of your special day.  Whether it’s the bride’s heartfelt hug with her dad or the flower girl and ring bearer dancing, it catches the spontaneous and touching moments in an artistic an unobtrusive way.


For more information on wedding photography, check out our article in Las Vegas Bride on page 72.

Wed during the Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas Marathon & Half Marathon

December 5, 2011

On your mark, get set, GET MARRIED!

Las Vegas’ annual Rock n’ Roll marathon brought thousands together – rocking out to bands, cheering on racers and witnessing nuptials!  The first-ever night time backdrop included booze, live music, Elvis impersonators and the gleaming neon lights of the fabulous Las Vegas Strip.  This made for a perfect backdrop for the more than 100 couples that exchanged their vows during the celebratory event.

Complete with veils tucked into ponytails, and bowties on top of t-shirts, couples exchanged vows in a run-through wedding ceremony.  The nuptials took place in front of The Mirage where the volcano fired off as each pair sealed their vows with a kiss.  After the three minute ceremony, short pause to snap pictures, and catch confetti, the love birds returned to the track to finish the 13-mile stretch.

If this isn’t a wedding event true to Las Vegas form, I’m not sure what is!

POLL WED: What are you thankful for?

November 23, 2011

We traditionally celebrate Wednesdays with a poll. 

We initially were going to ask;

what are you thankful for? 

But we knew the answer!

Today, like other Wednesdays, will be a blur of a day.  You’re probably like most brides, who – regardless of busy holiday plans, and the chaos that comes with it – doesn’t take a day off of wedding planning.  Even if all you do is contemplate bridesmaid shoe options, you don’t stop.  You may even have a long list of tasks to complete; engagement photos to be taken, holiday photos to be taken, wedding invitations to address, holiday cards to address…

On top of that, your parent-in-laws-to-be are coming to visit, you have two dinners parties planned, your floors are dirty and toilets could use a good scrub down.  And don’t forget the grocery shopping that needs to be done, food to be prepped, which in fact leads to gym time needing to be scheduled!  Today, like every day in the life of a bride-to-be is a full day, and it’s just begun.

Just when your whole day seems overtaken, when you feel frustrated, rundown, and tired…you can stop and remember what it’s all for.  Thanksgiving is a perfect time to be thankful that you don’t have to face it alone.  You have a great fiancée that will keep you going through the holiday chaos and through your big day! 

Every bride-to-be can add their prince charming to their “to be thankful for” list!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thank you Neon City Media for the photos.
