One beautiful bride.  Thousands of stylish gowns.  What should you know when planning your walk on the white carpet?  Holli Ehrlich, co-founder Wedding Podcast Network, talks with Julie Raimondi, Editor in Chief, and Anne Chertoff, Sr. Editor, of Brides.com.  They talk about bridal fashion, the designers, the wonderful variety of gowns, the looks and accessory statements featured on this seasonâs runway.  Our wedding experts Julie and Anne offer savvy tips, advice and recommendations you need to know when shopping for the dress of your dreams to express your fashion point of view.

There is a gown for every bride:  pretty, sleek, chic, classic, elegant, sophisticated, sexy, romantic, fun, modern.  There are unique choices for the bride that really wants to get noticed.  Season after season the gown designers introduce a collection thatâs fresh and new.  Spring 2010 offers a distinct feeling of exuberance.  A bride starts her adventure with the search for THE dress.  The influential editors of Brides.com talk about their appreciation of a couture designed wedding gown.  How important is the salesperson at the bridal salon?  Should you bring an entourage?  What is the real scoop about sample sales? Julie and Anne have the answers to these situations and more.
 
We discuss hues & hemlines, fabrics and silhouettes, destination wedding choices, ready-to-wear influence, and dramatic ways to personalize the perfect look from front to back, head to toe, the shoulder, chest and waist.  Tired with strapless?  Is the ballgown for you and your wedding?  What do our editors love about gloves?  What not to put in the pockets?  There are many unexpected details and fashionable options that will enhance your feminine form.  Learn âthe rulesâ when outfitting the bridesmaids, the mothers, and the groom.  What does wear again really mean?  Should you give your bridal party freedom or guidelines?  Throughout this episode youâll hear important etiquette tips that encourage you to experience this day like no other.

In this Bridal Scene episode Holli & Robert talk about whatâs new at bridal market, speeches and toasts, why we need sleep, a recent survey on wedding planning cutbacks and chat about recent celebrity weddings.  Learn about sites and blogs you may want to add to your favorites.

The experts at the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists have eight smart tips about what to do once you take the gown home from the bridal shop.  They have partnered with Carbonfund.org to safeguard our planetâs future.  

Anne Chertoff, Senior Editor at Brides.com, recorded an audio boo on Twitter live at the Pnina Tornai show at Kleinfeld.  Anne talks about what she saw on the runways and what brides can expect to see in the bridal salons.  There are lots of wonderful options for brides today.

Couples spend so much money to ensure every detail is perfect, yet leave the speeches to unskilled hands. Wendy Dennis, founder of Crowd Pleaser Communications, joins us via Skype from Toronto to learn what a speech is and is not and why itâs important to be well prepared.  Wendy is an award-winning journalist and bestselling author who recently launched a business writing toasts for the speechwriting challenged.

Bridal Scene LIVE - Let Them Eat Cake benefit for City of Hope

The wedding cake has been an important part of the wedding celebration since Roman Times.  The wedding cake as we know it today, with layers, supporting pillars, & fancy frosting, has its origins in the wedding cake that commemorated the marriage of one of Queen Victoria’s daughters in 1859.  Through the years, the wedding cake has become the focus of a variety of customs and traditions.  Let them Eat Cake, a wedding cake competition is Philadelphia’s largest wedding fundraiser.  Now that’s a tradition worth talking about.

Mark Kingsdorf, owner of The Queen of Hearts Wedding Consultants, founded Let Them Eat Cake in honor of his mother Lois’ loving memory.  Having been directly affected by a woman living with breast cancer it was a natural for him to start the Let Them Eat Cake for City of Hope’s Cancer Center.  It is a privilege to support Mark and join forces to raise awareness and much needed funding for cancer treatment and research.

More than 40 of the Philadelphia region’s top pastry arts professionals and students competed for “top chef? at the third annual Let Them Eat Cake benefit held at the elegant Park Hyatt.  Participants displayed their single best design and provided one totally edible creation.  Cakes were judged by culinary arts and wedding industry professionals including Carrie Denny of Philadelphia Elegant Wedding magazine, Thom Cardwell from Thom's Table, Michael Giletto from Cherry Valley Country Club and Phyllis Stein-Novack of the South Philly Review. The cakes were given awards for Most Artistic, Best Tasting and Best Overall.

Wedding Podcast Network interviewed many participants including aspiring students and culinary professionals.  We asked them about their personal designs & fillings.  We also asked them what they love about designing wedding cake.  Hear some great stories behind the scenes.

Hundreds of culinary enthusiasts and brides-to-be attended this amazing evening.  Once the cakes were sampled and judged the public - brides, grooms and Philadelphia foodies - sampled the entries.  What a great opportunity for engaged couples to see, taste and be inspired by a variety of different cakes that they may choose for their own wedding day.

Check out the photos of the cakes featured at this special fundraiser in this enhanced podcast .

Bridal Scene Show #18 with hosts Holli Ehrlich and Robert Allen. Special Edition: Bridal Market Spring 2007 NYC Part 2

The votes are in, and it's unanimous.  The designers want you in a  wedding dress that reflects you and your sense of style.  You should be thrilled because show after show, collection after collection, runway after runway, were filled with one beautiful dress after another. Beading, lace, empire and belted, feminine, sexy and chic.  Wedding Podcast Network unveils coverage of Bridal Market in New York City heard nowhere else.  You are invited to a front row seat to hear the personal inspiration of the looks and styles for Spring 2007.

We hope you enjoyed Bridal Scene #17, Bridal Market Spring 2007 NYC Coverage Part 1.  Part 2 is a special 90 minute celebration of the hottest, most noted gown designers.  Join us as we go backstage and speak with more than a dozen key players in the wedding industry.  WPN had a chance to chat with highly accomplished wedding experts: Kathy Nenneker, Editor Los Angeles Weddings magazine, Sylvia Weinstock, wedding cake diva, Carley Roney, founder of The Knot and Antonia van der Meer, Editor in Chief of Modern Bride magazine.  Jessica Liebeskind, beauty correspondent, talks with WPN about the hair and makeup seen on the runway.

The storytelling begins with Justina McCaffrey's "Majestic" collection. Her dresses, created out of the finest silks, exude a gracefulness and classic elegance.  All of her designs carry a strong tie with Justina's love of ballet. 

Reem Acra's collection is about modernity and feminity inspired by Josephine Bonaparte.  Acra is known for her attention to detail, signature beaded embroideries and unique fabric combinations. 

Monique Lhuillier Bride is high fashion.  Sighted:  Hand tufting, re-embroidered lace, three quarter and long sleeves, full A-line skirts and pleated boleros. Colors:  Ivory, Pewter, Mushroom and Latte.  

Carmela Sutera introduced an elegant collection featuring the finest European fabrics.  The linen gowns with Venice lace were particularly fresh.  Colored satin sashes, pleated waistbands, long sleeves, colored ribbon accents were a few of the details noticed on the runway. 

Anne Barge's love and appreciation of classic, timeless elegance is reflected in her latest bridal collection.  Ice blue silk satin, cotton pique,  Paris brooches, hand beading, fine feathers, black silk flowers, black velvet band and crystal cut sequins accented with Swarovski crystals were just some of the beautiful adornments seen.

Mark Badgley & James Mischka, celebrity designers, are masters of bead, lace and red carpet glamour.  The Badgley Mischka signature style is simple, streamlined and thoroughly elegant, luxurious detail.  Sexy, Retro Silhouettes.  Shoes and handbags also designed by Badgley Mischka.

Feminine glamour and modern styles by Amsale, Christos and Kenneth Pool follow.  Scoop: Project Runway's Austin Scarlett caught the eye of judge Amsale Aberra and was offered the head design  position at Kenneth Poole, an Amsale division known for opulent, luxurious bridal and evening wear.

The PLATINUM for Priscilla of Boston Collection is for brides who prefer a more luxurious, dramatic gown.  Designs are created from elegant silk fabrics with hand-embroidered beading, crystal and threadwork. 

Venezuelan-born Angel Sanchez creates bridal gowns that are architectural and contemporary while still being feminine.  Sanchez represents the perspective of the international Latin-American style.  His mother was his first inspiration because of her taste and determination.

Pnina Tornai, leading designer in Israel, houses her collection exclusively at Kleinfeld Bridal in NYC.  Her signature corset design is created to have the perfect fit.  Her collection varies from classic with clean lines and details to sophisticated hand embroidered ballgowns.  The finale wowed us:  Noir - black wedding gown.

Vera Wang celebrates the individuality and spirit of modern young women.  Waists are loose and free, or wrapped in sashes of tulle or linen, sequin, snakeskin and stones.  Element of style:  extravagant bows, ties and watteaus create a sense of volume, movement and ornamentation.  Her collection of dresses express freedom, elegance, and ease.

We hope you enjoyed walking down the runway with us.

Special Edition: Bridal Market Spring 2007 NYC Part 1 This special episode of Bridal Scene takes us to Bridal Market in New  York City.  This is where the top wedding gown designers come to showcase and introduce their newest designs.  This is your chance to hear the personal inspiration of the looks and styles for Spring 2007.  From classic elegance to fashion forward creations, your dream wedding dress awaits!

Join us as we attend and report live on nearly 20 runway shows with some of the hottest, most noted gown designers.  First stop the Adele Wechsler Fashion Show.  We go backstage to speak with Adele.  The Adele Wechsler name has often been linked to the ever popular Destination Wedding.

We continue our coverage at the Wedding Channel Couture Show located in the Waldorf Astoria and feature Paula Varsalona, Alfred Angelo and some fabulous shoes by Blue Tux Shoes.

One of the most fun runway shows was the Michelle Roth and Henry Roth show.  WPN Style Correspondent, Jessica Liebeskind, goes behind the scenes to interview the head makeup artist, Lea Siegel, for Roth Runway.  Hear from the one and only Henry Roth right after the show.  "Brides want a gown that is cool just like her groom!  Down the aisle or on the dance floor brides are always ready for their close up."

Then it is back across the street to St.Bartholemew's Church for the Watters show.  We have access to go backstage to grab an interview with the designer, Vatana Watters.  Congratulations on 20 years of modern and imaginative design. 

The last stop of day one at Bridal Market takes us to the private showroom suite of Romona Keveza for an intimate showing of her Spring 2007 couture collection.  She offers timeless bridal silhouettes in luxurious fabrics.  Romona is charming.  The interview is informative and genuine.

Stay tuned as we unveil more wedding gowns for the most important day of your life in Part 2 of Spring 2007 Bridal Market.  You're invited to a front row seat.

Bridal Scene show #16 with hosts Holli Ehrlich and Robert Allen This Bridal Scene is a wonderful variety of entertaining guests, music and news in the world of weddings.

We visited the New York International Gift Fair, and looked for new products in the bridal market.  We speak with Robin Kramer, Director of Sales, from Dogeared Jewels & Gifts.  Dogeared's designer Marcia Maizel-Clarke recognized the need for jewelry that speaks, and created the original word jewelry and charms.  The products at this company capture the magic of words, symbols, wishes and dreams. We think that their necklaces would make a great gift for bridesmaids and the flower girl.

You've got questions....Jessica has the answers.  Jessica Liebeskind, make-up artist and lifestyle beauty expert, shares some great ideas on putting together a Bridal Beauty emergency kit for your guests.  She tells us what it is, where to put it and most important terrific suggestions on what to put in it.  Jessica to the rescue.

Ready to be entertained?  Wedding Podcast Network is proud to introduce Planet Bride, an original WPN program, hosted by brother and sister fashion team, Michelle Roth & Henry Roth.  Fantasy?  Fiasco?  Reality?  Listen to a small clip of something like you've never heard before.  You will be able to hear the premier episode later this week.  It's not to be missed!

Uncle Seth is a great band Robert met at PodCamp in Boston, MA.  Uncle Seth  is a "mix of pop, rock, acoustic folk, twisty grooves, tender ballads, and pretty melodies topped off by rousing vocals".  Tara Thompson-Lead vocals & trumpet, Jeff Jones-Guitar, Jay Moonah-Bass & Harmonica, Chris Patheiger-Percussion& Drums.  The first song we play is called "A Little Bit More".  As we close the show we play a song called "I Don't Need an Ipod", lyrics written by John Havens, podcasting expert at About.com.  To see the music video click here.  It's a lot of fun.

We answer a listener email asking if you really need to spend two months salary on an engagement ring. Jewelry designer, Amy L. Levine, gives expert advice about how to best handle this and still be happy with your decision.

Bridal Scene Show #14 with hosts Holli Ehrlich and Robert Allen In this Bridal Scene we discuss our decision not to cover the baseball wedding at Keyspan Park. We talk about the idea of sponsored weddings and how wedding professionals feel about them. 

Two new shows are available with separate feeds - Newlywedcast with Quint & Kim and Meet the Masters (Wedding Masters in iTunes) with Rebecca Grinnals. 

Click here to subscribe to the Newlywedcast in iTunes
Click here to subscribe to Meet the Wedding Masters in iTunes

Hosts, Robert & Holli, discuss solving family problems while planning a wedding and still have the wedding that you want.  Through it all, don't forget why you and your spouse are marrying.  Your love for each other and desire to make a life long commitment is the most important factor in the wedding plan.

We play a new piece of podsafe music called Tonight by Manons Dream.  Great first dance as husband and wife. 

Our featured guest on the show is Lori Harris, Certified Astrologer.  Lori takes us through the Zodiac and discusses traits of each sign, especially with regard to love and relationships.  She shares with us how some cultures really depend upon the reading of astrological charts prior to marriage and in turn there is a much lower divorce rate.  Lori's services include chart analysis, tarot and numerology.   She is available for individual and group readings. This would be great fun to have at your bridal shower or wedding.
