This week new gowns have been coming and we know that lace is back and it is beautiful. Our first four gowns in this week were lace and they were big sellers. We are so excited when we get new gowns, it is like Christmas but earlier. The consultants get so excited to open the boxes, just like little kids, lol. I do have to say the selection of gowns we have for Spring 2010 are going to be fantastic. We are having a short week this week for Thanksgiving, we will be closed of course Thursday, and will reopen Friday and Saturday for a big weekend since people will be home for the holidays. Call for an appointment for Friday or Saturday and see all our new things. We want to congratulate Ashley Gammon who got married Saturday, we saw her and her mom Friday for a final fitting to help her mom learn how to lace her up, her mom loved her redesigned gown that had a cool Facchianos designed collar. We are waiting to get pictures to put on this blog, we will show those soon. Have a great Turkey day and don't forget to visit Facchianos.

Facchianos had fun for Halloween....

The girls asked if they could dress in Orange and Black on Saturday for Halloween, everyone looked very festive, except me, I didn't own anything Orange so I stuck with the Black and White uniform, lol. We had the window decorated in Orange and Black too. We did have a great October, I can't believe how many weddings were every weekend, booked solid. We want to congratulate Erin McCall, Valerie Cain, and Mandy Vaughn, they got married the 24th of October and we hope to see pictures soon. I also want to congratulate our brides from this past weekend AnnDee went and coordinated Ashley Heider's wedding at the Petroleum Club and went off without a hitch. Ashley was wearing an original design from Facchianos that was redesigned just for her, we call it "Anniston", she accented the gown with a beautiful Cathedral veil to match. Then Rachel was off to Leslie Barnard's wedding the same day and her's was great as well. Her wedding was at Trinity Episcopal downtown. Her gown was a Sophia Tolli gown called "Vivienne" and we did lots of french bustles on the train which turned the gown into a bubble hem in the back. I was pretty proud of that bustle. We always like to make unique designed bustles that are functional for moving around at the reception. When we coordinate the weddings it thrills us to see the final product of all the planning we've been a part of. Here are some brides that just sent us pictures of themselves and we are so glad to see how beautiful they look. The bride on the porch is Brooke and our other lovely bride is all the way from Rio in Brazil, Daniella, aren't they both absolutely stunning? We hope they are as happy with us as we were to help them.

Great wedding weekend at Facchianos

We just wanted to thank our brides and grooms from this past weekend. We are so happy to have been able to help them with all of their weddings needs. We want to thank Mandi Crosslin and Jonathan Martin, Amanda Atkins and Tyler Payne, Emily Turner and Tad Colburn, and one of our especially favorite couples Natalie Gruenberg and Mark Haggard, they said we reminded them of the Store on "Say Yes to the dress". They didn't even know that is why Facchianos was started, because the owner bought her gown there 17 years ago for her wedding and had the best wedding experience,and she wanted to bring that experience to Tulsa. So if you want the Kleinfeld's experience and don't want to travel to NYC you can come right to Facchianos.

Our coordinating is a must

WOW! WHAT a busy wedding week, we had big weddings in town and out of town. Rachel traveled to Fort Smith to do the wedding of Courtney Beaty. Her gown was a georgeous gown designed here at Facchianos. She also got all her bridesmaids and mothers dress here. The wedding was coordinated through Facchianos and went off brilliantly. Thanks Rachel! AnnDee our consultant who had her baby and is on maternity leave came back to do Jennifer Stretch's wedding at McBirney Mansion in Tulsa. She said the entire wedding party looked spectacular, all dressed by Facchianos even down to the tuxes. Jennifer's gown was a gown is from our Celebrity collection called "Anniston" designed right here at Facchianos Bridal and Formal Attire. We will miss our brides from this weekend they are really like family.

What will they always remember.....

"The Gown". I always tell brides that the smallest percentage of the wedding budget goes to the one thing that has the most impact, "The Gown". It even takes on a life of it's own, when the bride decides she says this is "The Gown". We at the salon refer to each brides as "The Gown". when people remember the wedding, yes the food was great, the music was good, but did you see how beautiful the bride was in "The Gown". So remember when picking, it is one of the most important decisions you will make, besides "The Groom". Have a safe and happy 4th of July:)

Weddings are in full swing

We helped last week with Jessica Jeter's wedding, Rachel our manager delivered her gown and bridesmaid dresses and said she looked absolutely stunning. She said her hair was the best updo she has ever seen. We wish Jessica well with her new job in the fall and I will personally miss her at Peter's Elementary. We also married off Laronda Thompson, pictured on right, and she sent us a wedding photo from her professional Bridal shoot with Steve McKinney Photography in Tulsa. Steve provided her with a makeup artist and hairdresser, she looked awesome. Our tuxes are also in full swing. We made sure that all the weddings for last week and this week fit perfectly and all the guys looked great! Our tuxes are competitively priced but exceed all others in the fit! This is our favorite time of the year to see the final product with all the weddings. Check out the Greater Tulsa Reporter Newspaper for our article about the Perils of online shopping. Look for our next article about bridal shows.

Great Weekend at Facchianos!

Had a busy weekend at Facchianos, lots of wedding, we helped with two wedding parties. Delivered wedding gowns and bridesmaids for Allison Lindsley's wedding and for Cate Drummonds wedding. The weather was beautiful and both brides were stunning. I (Jennifer) was at Cate's wedding and ran into Toni from Toni's Flowers located at 3525 South Harvard, in Tulsa. She designed the most beautiful flowers for Cate's wedding. If you can book Toni for your wedding day, do it, she designs some of the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen!!
