5 Things You Need To Have The Wedding of Your Dreams
Wedding bells are ringing all around St. Louis as wedding season is officially upon us. If you’ve recently said “yes,” let us be the first to say congratulations! Now the best (and most stressful!) part has started—the wedding planning. To help make planning easier, we’ve teamed up with five local wedding experts to make your wedding day one to remember.
Few things in life make as dramatic a statement as a wedding gown. Amplify your personal style and wow your guests by choosing a stunning silhouette unique to you. Thanks to recent runway shows from bridal designers, tulle is making a comeback in a big way in 2016. The fabric makes for a modern and ethereal wedding gown and pairs beautifully with colorful dresses in playful summer colors.
Choose hair and makeup for your day that reflects your personality and theme for the wedding. Whether a whimsical updo with a braid, an intricate bun or big, loose curls pinned half up, do what suits you. Whatever you choose, be sure to complete your look with airbrush makeup for a flawless finish that lasts the whole day.
It’s your day. There will be times throughout the planning process when it won’t feel that way, so make every detail reflect your personal style, especially your invitations! In doing so, it doubles as a keepsake, something you and your loved one will be proud to hang on your wall for all the tomorrows you will share.
Well-known for its wonderful house-made desserts, impressive wine collection and unique dining space, Cyrano’s Cafe is a great spot to host your wedding party.

Its completely one-of-a-kind private room can accommodate up to 40 people for a sit-down meal, or up to 60 for a buffet-style or cocktail party.
Give your wedding guests a taste of St. Louis history at The Cheshire. Located steps from Forest Park, The Cheshire is the perfect spot to host your bridal event, rehearsal dinner or small receptions. Reserve one of its Novelty Suites themed around some of the greatest works in British literature from James Bond to Romeo and Juliet. Don’t forget to accommodate your out-of-town guests by reserving a block of rooms; the intricate, charming decor will leave your friends and family in awe. Guests can enjoy bridal luncheons or brunches on the morning of your big day, or a poolside party complete with cocktails and hor d’oeuvres perfect for bachelor or bachelorette parties.
