Every wedding dress needs a tweak or two or more, so find an alterations specialist right away | Weddings

Size up — but not too much

When choosing a dress, make sure it fits your biggest area. For some, that may be the hips and for others the bust or the waist. The rest can be taken in. Otherwise, if a dress needs to be expanded, there may not be enough fabric to let out. That could mean ordering more material, and some designers don’t sell their fabric. Many brides also arrive with a dress that is three or four sizes too large, which creates extra work, which ups the bill.


Gown alterations: 7 things every bride needs to know

Consider the labor involved

Every dress alteration involves five or more hours of labor. Hemming a puffy dress or ballroom gown takes more time than a sheath. Beading and lace must be carefully taken apart to make alterations and then put back together again. “It’s very time-consuming,” Pollens says.

MARIETTA, Ga. — White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows hosted a large wedding for his daughter that appeared to violate a Georgia order and city of Atlanta guidelines to stop the spread of COVID-19, a newspaper reported Thursday.

Photos of the event show many of the guests crowding together, dancing and hugging during the May 31 nuptials at the Biltmore Ballrooms Atlanta, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

About 70 guests, including U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, wore tuxedos and ball gowns but no masks at the indoor wedding, and photographs show groups of people clustered closely together in the same room throughout the evening, the newspaper said.

Gov. Brian Kemp’s orders at the time banned gatherings of more than 10 people. The governor later loosened

Carlton Park closure forces couple to call off wedding for second time

A DEVASTATED couple’s fully-planned wedding had to be scrapped for a second time after Carlton Park closed — leaving them almost £3,000 out of pocket.

Gary Griffin and Laura Hamlet were forced to switch from August 28 this year to the same date in 2021 because of the pandemic.

And the couple thought it was a hoax when a hurried note was emailed from one of the affected staff at Carlton Park last week.

“It was either rushed or just really bad English,” said Gary (45), who grew up in Kiveton Park. “We thought: ‘Is this some kind of joke’ and rang the Advertiser, who confirmed that it had been closed.

“We’ve tried all sorts of email addresses but had no answers. So I’ve been in touch with the credit card and bank to fund the transactions, because we paid bit by bit.

“It’s caused arguments between us because it’s

The couple celebrated their 15th wedding anniversary on Wednesday by posting sweet tributes to one another on Instagram.

“15 years ago today I married the kindest, funniest and weirdest human I’ve ever met. Grateful every single day!!!” the actress, 50, wrote, sharing a photo of the pair kissing.

Falcone shared a humorous photo of McCarthy holding two rabbits, saying that he found the picture in his phone but “can’t remember seeing it before.”

“Two things: A) I’m so lucky and grateful to be married to such a lovely, smart, kind and wonderful person B) why is there a skunk in the picture?” the actor, 47, wrote in the caption. “Happy fifteenth Anniversary, Mooch! Here’s to 500 more (I am assuming we will kinda be robots for 400 of those years)”

Fun Times, Family Memories Await At New Concord Event Center

CONCORD, NH — Tucked deep into the woods, along a dirt road nearly a half a mile off Bog Road, will probably be one of the most romantic areas of the city next month after a new wedding and corporate function hall opens in West Concord.

After nearly two years of planning and many months of construction, The Barn At Bull Meadow is scheduled to host its first wedding in October.

The function room became a dream of Justin and Jennifer Stephens and later, Justin’s brother, Eric Stephens, after the couple put together their own wedding and had a hard time finding the right location, with the ambiance they desired, at a price point they could afford. Jennifer Stephens studied event management in college and after exchanging their vows, the couple began to discuss the idea … a lot.

“Where we got married, it was a husband and wife that

WEDDINGS has been one of the main industries curtailed by coronavirus restrictions but two Tweed residents are helping couples be able to plan their wedding in COVID-19 times.

Judi Watts and Kristy Mason created Aisle Wedding Market, an online market platform which is designed to connect wedding suppliers with couples looking to plan their wedding from their living room.

Ms Mason said that the pair wanted to create something positive for the wedding industry which has faced some tough months recently.

“The pandemic has really affected us and the entire wedding community,” she said.

“We hated seeing colleagues and fellow business owners struggling and closing down around us.
