Most brides look forward to their bridal shower and celebrating their upcoming nuptials with their nearest and dearest. No matter what type of bridal shower you have (afternoon tea or brunch at home anyone?), one of the best ways to guarantee that guests have a great time is to spend time on the seating chart. AllSeated‘s Co-Founder & CMO Sandy Hammer shared with us her top tips for creating the perfect bridal shower seating chart. Even if you’re the one being showered — you can read and share these tips with the hostess(es) to guarantee a great time for all!

  1. Make sure to sit guests together that have common interests. This will help keep the conversation going!
  2. When you use AllSeated for your wedding seating chart, make sure to categorize guests into different groups. This will help save time collecting addresses for the bridal shower invitations.
  3. Be mindful of where the activities should take place. Whether it’s opening gifts or giving a toast, all guests should have a good view!
  4. Reserve a seat for the bride at each table. All guests will be able to spend time with the bride and feel included!
  5. Once your seating chart is finalized, kick-off a game with fun place cards! As guests arrive, ask them to write their wedding advice for the bride-to-be on the blank side of the card. Once everyone is seated, collect the cards and have the bride-to-be read them aloud! Pro Tip: provide a keepsake box to store the cards after the shower!

Wedding Emojis by Hayley Paige Are Here!

February 15, 2017 Kleinfeld Unveiled

BIG news! Designer Hayley Paige  just released the first wedding-focused emoji app called Holy Matrimoji. Hayley Paige saw that brides want to communicate with their bffs during every step of the wedding process, but couldn’t always find the right words to describe their feelings. However, with wedding-focused emojis & stickers — brides can express themselves easily during every situation.

Since Hayley Paige was recently a bride herself — she understands the emotional state of all brides and their friends during the wedding planning process. Drawing inspiration from her own experience as a bride, she personally hand-drew every single sticker and frame of animation herself!

Holy Matrimoji is basically a gift from above for all brides-to-be and their friends. Trust us when we say, you’ll want to download it today!

DESIGNER Q&A

Kleinfeld Bridal’s 2016 Holiday Windows

December 14, 2016 Kleinfeld Unveiled

Jacques Vigneault, Kleinfeld Bridal’s Creative Director & his team have created the most beautiful 2016 holiday windows for Kleinfeld Bridal! These windows are a destination fro tourists & native New Yorkers alike. We recently caught up with Jacques and had the opportunity to talk to him and hear his inspiration behind these gorgeous windows!

1. Tell Us About the theme, “The Passage of Time” 

I used an elevator as a symbol for a transitions. The elevators are stuck between the 24th & 25th floors, which represents the December 24th and Christmas Day.

In both windows I wanted to illustrate the two different worlds, upstairs and downstairs and how they interchange when you adjust your focus. Outside of the elevators shows a festive atmosphere, however inside the elevators the scenes are quite intense.

 2. Describe What’s Happening in the Right Window Display 

The right window shows an elevator that’s passing the 24th floor, to represent Hanukkah this year. There is a fiddler on the roof, some empty Chinese food containers and a little guy reading some fortune cookies. In New York it’s very common for the Jewish population to eat Chinese take out on Christmas Day since most restaurants are closed on the holiday.

3. What’s happening in the left window? 
The display in the left window has the elevator just passing the 25th floor or Christmas Day. The little guy underneath the elevator is celebrating at work and feasting on the left overs from the hotel service tray.  In this scene the woman is the aggressor and she’s in charge. I believe this is a preview of the year to come.
4. What designer is featured in the windows?

Pnina Tornai’s dresses are featured in the windows and Jimmy Choo shoes — they all represent opulence and glitz. The men are wearing tuxedos designed by Frank Jedda.

5. How long did the windows take to create? How long will the windows be up for? 
The conceptualization took 2 months and the actual creation took 3 weeks. They will be up until January 9th!
Enjoy a few more details!
