Wednesday, December 15, 2010

Just came back from Florida for the Mon Cheri Academy. This was a bridal conference to learn more about the bridal business. We always want to learn the most we can to help brides that come to visit us. I learned new alterations techniques to make the gowns fit better. I also had the pleasure of meeting some Bridal gown and prom designers while I was there. I met James Clifford aka Jim Helm which was one of the highlights of the trip for me. I saw Tony Bowls again and got to talk more in depth with him about design and what inspires him. I also met Ivonne Dome and Martin Thornburg. Sophia Tolli was not able to attend since she was having her baby in Australia at the time. It was a great learning experience and just in time for the new wedding season. There will be lots of great new things come this year at Facchianos.

We had a wedding of our own at Facchianos

We had lots of weddings this week at Facchianos but one of our own, Rhonda Higgins married Randy Pattison. The entire staff hurried after work Saturday to make it to the ceremony. The Pattisons, Karen and Ray, Randy's parents, have been longtime clients of Facchianos. They always come in before the Taste of Tulsa to pick out a new formal dress and tuxedo for the event. Rhonda and Randy picked a very unique wedding venue, the Stokley Event Center. BTW This month there is an article in the GTR newspapers about unique wedding venues. Rhonda picked out all the wedding attire, while she was on the clock, lol. She outfitted the entire wedding party at Facchianos Bridal and Formal Attire. Rhonda wore a beautiful Maggie Sottero wedding dress, which we lovingly call the ROCK STAR DRESS. And she rocked in her dress!! Her bridesmaids wore strapless Black Bill Levkoff bridesmaid dresses. Her groom, his guys, and the fathers wore tuxedos provided by Facchianos. Randy and Rhonda's adorable daughter Abby wore a flowergirl dress in turquoise also from Facchianos. The accent colors were turquoise and yellow!! It was absolutely stunning, the delicious food was catered by Ricardos Restaurant in Tulsa and the fantastic music was provided by DJ Matt from DJ Connection Tulsa. The incredible tasting wedding cake and grooms cake were by Dee's in Owasso.

Very excited to meet Tony Bowls

I met Tony Bowls at Market and snapped a picture with him. He was very nice and we carry two of his prom line. We talked about designing, I told him I studied Fashion Design in NY and London. He has a reality show coming out in the late Spring 2011. He is from Fort Smith, so I told him anytime he was in Oklahoma to stop by and see us!

Facchianos is shopping the Dallas Market for all the great designers that most people think they have to drive all the way out here for. Facchianos will have the best styles picked just for all of our Tulsa and surrounding area brides. We understand how overwhelming wedding dress shopping can be for Tulsa Brides because we are overwhelmed with thousands of dresses to pick from. We are narrowing down to the best styles to bring back. We found some great headpieces and accessories today and will be back out tomorrow again. Wish us luck :)

Jennifer's wedding day was fast approaching. Nothing could dampen her excitement...not even her parents' nasty divorce. Her mother had found the PERFECT dress to wear and would be the best-dressed mother-of-the-bride ever! A week later, Jennifer was horrified to learn that her father's new, young wife had bought the exact same dress! Jennifer asked her to exchange it, but she refused. "Absolutely not.!” I look like a million bucks in this dress, and I'm wearing it," she replied. Jennifer told her mother who graciously said, "Never mind, sweetheart. I'll get another dress. After all, it is your special day." A few days later, they went shopping and did find another gorgeous dress. When they stopped for lunch, Jennifer asked her mother, "Are you going to return the other dress? You really don't have another occasion where you could wear it." Her mother just smiled and replied "Of course I do dear,
I’m wearing it to the rehearsal dinner!"
Now I ask you - What woman wouldn't love this story?!

If you need a mother's dress Facchianos is the place for you. A dad who came in today told us his wife was looking everywhere and he was so glad they found us because she couldn't find anything anywhere! We have the most stylish mother's dresses for the mother's of the bride and groom. We'll make you look fantastic!!

So much to blog I don't know where to start...

First we received a letter form Google that said we were one of the favorite places on Google, which means for a given time we were one of less than 1% of businesses that had the most hits in the United States on our website So excited about that!! Then I, Jennifer Thompson, have entered a contest to be the next Oprah Network star so I will need lots of votes, I need everyone to vote everyday and as often as you can at the website link

Please paste it to all your social networking pages, and email to friends to forward on to others!! I would love a chance to be a Talk show host, I think I could be great and maybe do some wedding segments too :) Then business has been wonderful, we have had three new brides become Facchianos brides just today! Congratulations to Megan, Kelly, and Whitney!!! This has been a great day!! We also have a Quick Response barcode that you can add to your smartphone that can link you directly to our website, how cool is that? The barcode is above this post, try it?

WOW!!! Is all I can say about the new Mrs. Candace Peltier!! What a beautiful picture she sent to us at Facchianos. You can see more at under our galleries. She had a Maggie Sottero gown that we redesigned by making it form fitted and we made the neckline a sweetheart. Only at Facchianos can you get the exact dress of your dreams, because if you cannot find it we can make it what you envisioned. When Candace came in with her soon to be sister in law Nicole (who was also a beautiful Facchianos bride) she wondered how to pick the right dress. I told her she would know. She narrowed it down to two dresses and we added accessories to both. She said she didn't know but everytime she tried on this particular Maggie Sottero dress with the long veil she would cry. She said how will I know? I said well Candace everytime you try this one on you cry, I think that is how you know? So long story short that is how she found her dress. Not every bride has tears but I always tell them you will know, you just feel it.

The wedding of Ashley and Josh Prentice

Wow the wedding I worked yesterday was full of beautiful people. It was the wedding of Ashley Bewley and Josh Prentice. The reason we have a service of delievering the gown and helping the bride is really selfish. We love to see the brides at the finale....the wedding. Ashley looked absolutely beautiful in a Facchianos Exclusive Sophia Tolli gown with a very intricate lace back (hence the reason I was needed). Josh was wearing a classic tuxedo also rented at Facchianos. Her mother Sherri Bewley wore a Jade Mother of the bride dress that was a portrait collar and was stunning on her. The wedding was at United Methodist Downtown, the photographer was Chris Humphrey, and videographer was Jim Passmore from Captain Video. Zack Downing was their DJ for their reception at Camp Loughridge. We want to thank Ashley and Josh and their families for being such great people, Facchianos will miss seeing them.

Funny Joke for the Bride

The Aisle, the Altar, the Hymn

Through the ages, men have been trying to unlock this mystery:
Why do their wives, who accept them just as they are before they get married, begin the quest to change their behavior and life-style once their vows are exchanged?

Finally, the riddle is solved.

A social-scientist has arrived at his simple and logical explanation. When the bride, accompanied by her father, starts to walk slowly down the long aisle, she sees the altar at the end and hears the choir singing a hymn. Walking down the aisle, the conditioning process where the brain absorbs these three stimuli:

Aisle, altar, and hymn.

She becomes mesmerized as she continually reinforces these perceptions:

Aisle, altar, hymn. . . . . .Aisle, altar, hymn. . .Aisle, altar, hymn.

And finally, as she stops beside the groom, the conditioning process is complete. She looks up at him smiling sweetly and keeps saying to herself...

'I'll alter him!!!!!!

Facchianos has gone international!!!

We got a great email with pictures from our bride Rebecca so I wanted to post it. She was a sweetheart, her gown is a Sophia Tolli from Mon Cheri and we ordered sleeves to match that draped on her shoulders.

Dear Jennifer,

It's been almost a year since I came into your store one Tuesday morning. By that evening I came out carrying my dream dress!
I had flown especially to Tulsa from France to look for my wedding dress, having been recommended your salon by my aunt Colleen. I have been looking at wedding dresses since I was 11 and new exactly what I wanted, and when I found it in your store it brought such joy that tears streamed down my face. I hand carried it though 6 DIFFERENT AIRPORTS TO GET IT BACK HERE. We had a wedding in a 4th century seaside castle on the french Rivera and everyone was amazed by my dress. I was able to get ready at one of the most prestigious French Hotels the Negresco and even there compliments about the dress pro fused from everyone's lips.

My greatest joy is that I will be able to wear it again as I have another wedding party in Tulsa next month!
Thank you for all your help!

I want to congratulate Rebecca on her wonderful wedding and I just love this picture of her in the lovely gown we helped her with :)

What a weekend!!! We had more brides Saturday in one day then I have ever seen in out store. The Tulsa Wedding show was right down the street at the Renaissance Hotel on Highway 169, and I thought we would be busy just because of our location, but we had every room busy from the time we opened the doors at Facchianos at 71st and Garnett from 10AM until closing time. We had 18 new brides visit and try on gowns at our store. Some girls found the gown of their dreams on the first day out. One of my brides who is getting married in July came in just to make an appointment to come back at a later date and wound up trying on and finding not only her gown, but her veil, headpiece, headband, and accessories. Her mom cried when she saw it all put together. She then said to me, I didn't think I would be buying my gown today, but here I am getting a gown. She was sent to me from Destry at Glamour Artz who was at the wedding show, thanks Destry. I would also like to thank Jason from DJ Connection Tulsa who also sent brides directly to Facchianos. I would like to congratulate all our new brides that became Facchianos brides this weekend, we love having you and will do everything we can to make your wedding perfect!!
