If you’re anything like us, you’ve spent the last weeks scrolling Pinterest for the most beautiful island getaways, imagining yourself lying in a hammock under a single palm while sipping something magical.  After all we’ve been through here in New England, battling a pandemic that led straight into winter, it’s clear we all need some time away in a place I am going to term “destination decompress”.

Crawling out of this pandemic as a business owner means keeping my eyes and ears open for emerging trends in our industry.  It’s tough to navigate the direction weddings will take as the world awakens, but one thing is for sure.  We will absolutely be seeing brides who are planning a trip to the islands to take their vows and enjoy a long awaited tropical vacation in destination decompress.  As a result, a portion of our buying strategy will need to focus on the right gown elements for the perfect tropical wedding. Gowns for brides, moms and bridesmaids will need to be easy to transport and feel light and breezy while still making jaws drop.  This is such a fun endeavor for us.  This month on our social pages, we will focus on all things tropical weddings.  Learn some great tips for planning your event in the islands, see some inspo pics that will leave you stalking your travel agent, and of course, learn what gowns we’ve paired with the setting.  Note that we will be introducing some new bridal designers to our mix – Colby John and Madi Lane – as we focus on destination decompress.  We couldn’t be more excited to reveal these new designs with you!

Stay Well and Stay Positive!

In a recent email we sent to our guests, we asked them to close their eyes for a moment, take a very deep breath and allow themselves to dream once again about their perfect wedding.  Many of them had already postponed once, twice, some of them three times.  The fatigue has been evident during fittings at Bella Sera.  Many of our brides have lost sight of their wedding day vision and are telling us they just want the wedding over with.

            This letter is our opening blog to the world as we begin the shift from a pandemic that stole so many moments from us.  Our intent in reaching you is just the same as it was when we asked our guests to pause and revisit their wedding details – the sights, the guests, the smells, the spoken words, the music, the tears and the laughter.  It’s time to dream again.  Along these lines, we are going to begin a series of social stories to help spark those visions and bring the wedding you’ve always dreamed of back to the forefront.

            We begin with an enchanted forest wedding theme.  Its essence entails magic, ethereal elements, sights and sounds filled with richness and texture.  After feeling trapped and discouraged, a walk in the woods just feels, well, natural.  We hope our words, images and insights inspire you, and look forward to a journey of enticing and educating you as you begin to dream once again.

Always with Love,
