It’s All Part of the Wedding Plan …or Is It?

Congratulations! You’re engaged! So, now what’s your plan? Don’t know? Here’s the one key tip you should remember during this time…no, it’s not – panic. It’s sit down and start making a plan. Why? Because it really starts and finished with your plan.

Trudys Brides blogFrom your guest list, to your seating chart, you can easily waste valuable time by not having a wedding plan. First, start with jotting down your ideas on what you envisioned you perfect day to be. What does the area look like? Indoors or outdoors? Have any venues you’ve been to stood out?

Many brides have a wedding binder…a collection of tidbits that were accumulated over the years. But, just because you may not have one, doesn’t mean it’s hopeless. In fact, there are many websites that offer planning tools. One we love is on weddingwire.com – they even have a tab dedicated to planning!

The biggest thing is – don’t be overwhelmed. Starting and creating a plan can actually help calm the nerves because you can feel confident in your point of view and it helps when shopping for your dress or look at menu items to keep you on point with a goal.

Trudys understands the pressures brides face when planning for their big day. That’s why we strive to relieve that stress with at least one thing on that list – finding that perfect dress! Visit us today at The Pruneyard Shopping Center in Campbell, CA and see why many brides say YES! to Trudys’ dresses.

What Makes A Watters Bride

I can always tell when I meet a Watters bride. Maybe it’s that extra attention to detail she’s put into her outfit, or the savvy look in her eyes that says she’s an excellent shopper who wants exceptional value for her dollar. Maybe it’s the way she describes her wedding, full of personal and unique touches, the way she comes alive when she talks about her dream dress – artistic, inspired, modern but timeless – in other words, completely and totally her.

Trudys Brides - blogI know her when I see her, the Watters bride, and I love the look on her face when she discovers the variety, style, and incredible selection available to her in the Watters and WTOO Collections. These dresses are intelligent – stunning and creative, full of surprises and built-in options and constructed by the talented hand of a designer with years of experience. These dresses are exceptional, and swoon-worthy, and they are on their way to you.
Trudys is happy to present the debut of the Watters and WTOO 2014 Collections. November 29th – December 8th, we’ll have both gorgeous collections in the store for you to touch, try on, and celebrate. During the trunk show, each bride who falls in love with and purchases a Watters gown will receive a $150 credit to use toward her bridal accessories.

WTOO HERAAs if that weren’t enough excitement for one week, we are also thrilled to introduce the first line from Watters’ brand new bridal collection, D.I.D. The D.I.D Collection, named for the first initials of each of its three creative young designers, Dani, Izzie, and Dylan, is fresh, sexy, playful, and full of fantastic options that reflect the personal styles of its fabulously diverse creators. “New York native Dani’s east coast style influenced the elegant, and modern dresses with an allure of sophistication. Izzie’s California style inspired the romantic, bohemian and effortless gowns. Texas debutante Dylan’s style is reflected on glamorous dresses with a hint of sex appeal.”
Call today to schedule your appointment for our Watters, WTOO, and D.I.D Spring 2014 Collection debut trunk show. Are you a Watters bride? This is your perfect opportunity to come, try on, and see for yourself. Call (408) 377-1987 today to schedule your appointment!

Wedding Venue: Introducing the Enchanting Gardens of Almaden

Finding a wedding venue that is both beautiful AND flexible enough to meet all of your needs is perhaps the most stressful part of planning a wedding. You might love the view at one site, but not the $140-a-plate mandatory caterer. The food at another venue is spectacular, but not so much the box-like reception hall with its dated purple carpet and red velvet table linens. So often, you are faced with a long list of all-or-nothing packages. There are beautiful spaces, but never enough space and freedom to have the wedding you’re truly dreaming about.

Your wedding is yours and yours alone, and you deserve a venue that will allow you to get outside of the box and into the open air of the beautiful Almaden Hills, a venue with all of the luxury of a winery and the perfect intimacy of a wedding at home. Trudys is so happy to introduce you to one of our favorite new venues in the Bay Area – The (stunning) Enchanting Gardens of Almaden.

The Enchanting Gardens of Almaden is, quite simply, the best of all worlds. The beautifully manicured gardens and vineyard create the perfect wine-country ambiance, centered around a stunning Mediterranean villa that will serve as your home-away-from-home. The luxurious on-site bride’s room means you and your party won’t have to worry about transportation wrinkles – you can walk your freshly-pressed dress right outside and down the aisle. An expansive lawn and tiled patio offer you the ability to let your imagination run wild and create your own vision for your wedding day. The Enchanting Gardens is also a private venue – no unwanted gym goers or golf pros or hotel guests will be wandering in to your reception, leaving you free to relax and enjoy time with your friends and family.

It’s beautiful, it’s comfortable, it’s all yours – and we haven’t even gotten to the good part yet. Want to choose your own food? Feel free to bring your own licensed caterer! Have a certain wine you fancy? Bring in your own drinks, with NO corkage fee! The Enchanting Gardens is child-friendly, thrilled to celebrate with our LGBT brides and grooms, and your hosts are even thoughtful enough to provide a sitting room for elderly guests to escape and rest on cool summer nights.

The Enchanting Gardens of Almaden can accommodate up to 150 guests, or 250 with the addition of executive restrooms. Also included with the site is the Wedding Day Management Package of Certified Wedding Consultant Marcia Coleman-Joyner, whose warmth and 24 years of experience will be the final pieces that make your day truly perfect. We can vouch for Marcia’s talent ourselves – she is also the Event Coordinator for Trudys Brides!

We’re simply in love with The Enchanting Gardens of Almaden. And just when we thought we couldn’t fall any deeper, they’ve graciously donated the use of their property to one lucky couple as part of our $20,000+ Dream Wedding Give-Away at this year’s Wedding Faire. Maybe, just maybe, that couple is you.
