Saying Yes To The Dress – In The East Bay

Saying Yes To The Dress – In The East Bay

By Nicole Duffin / Amos Productions

The proposal day has come and gone. You are ENGAGED! Now what? For many brides-to-be shopping for the perfect wedding dress is on top of the “to do” list. However, finding your dream gown can be more stressful than fun when considering all the details that can factor into your dress selection. Perhaps you’ve dreamed of your wedding day since you were little, dressing up in princess dresses, tiaras and mommy’s jewelry, and pretending to walk down the aisle. Or perhaps you pore over images of multi-million dollar celebrity weddings, wishing you could duplicate such extraordinary affairs. Maybe you rely on social media sites such as Pinterest to inundate you with wedding photos, DIY projects, and color and theme options. Do you want your dress to reflect cultural or religious traditions? What about the season of your wedding, the venue, the theme, the style, fabric, and fit? Wedding dress selection can easily be the best and worst part of wedding planning.

Most importantly, your wedding gown should be a reflection of YOU, whether it’s flashy or conservative, haute couture or classic, satin or lace. Finding the right bridal shop that can not only provide your perfect dress within your budget, but can also satisfy all the additional “gown factors” can prove to be a challenge. Do you prefer to shop at larger chain stores, like David’s Bridal, where scores of gowns can be found in every price range, but often at the cost of one-on-one customer service? Or do you prefer smaller boutiques known for personal service, but where the selection of gowns may be limited and higher priced? Finally, do you prefer the privacy of your home where online shopping offers a convenient, yet risky option for your wedding dress selection? A huge array of gowns at every price range awaits the online bridal gown shopper, and on the surface, this appears to be a convenient, viable option. However, wedding dress sizing is not comparable to normal clothing sizes, can vary greatly between designers, and poses a definite problem for anyone ordering online. Likewise, the quality of fabric and craftsmanship, as well as fabric color may cause brides to “best guess” which gown will fit, have the right feel, and be the perfect color.

Wherever you decide to embark on the hunt for your perfect gown, be sure to schedule an appointment and allow plenty of time. Be open to trying on different styles, fits, and fabrics. Your dream dress may end up being one that you never would have imagined loving. The East Bay boasts a number of bridal shops which are unique in their inventory as well as their approach to serving brides-to-be. Highlighted here is an interview with Jamie, the owner of J’aime Bridal in Pleasanton, as well as a list of other special East Bay bridal stores and boutiques.

We would love to hear about your wedding gown shopping experience and how you decide on the dress of your dreams. Please post your story below and share your experience!

INTERVIEW with Jaime Zile of J’amie Bridal in Downtown Pleasanton, CA
Nicole / AP: When is the best time to shop for a wedding gown?
Jamie: I always suggest weekday appointments whenever possible. Weekdays are quiet and often brides that come in onweekdays have unlimited time and the entire salon and staff to themselves.

Nicole / AP: How much time should a bride allow to order a gown?
Jamie: Dresses can take up to six months to arrive in the store, so plan early to make sure the dress you love can be yours by your wedding day. Several designers try to keep styles in stock for immediate delivery, but that is never guaranteed.

Nicole / AP: What is your advice about who to bring to the bridal gown appointment?
Jamie: I recommend no more than two to three people, those who are most important to the bride. Too many opinions can be overwhelming to the bride.

Nicole / AP: How do brides typically find the perfect gown?
Jamie: Don’t eliminate anything at first glance. I can’t tell you how many brides have not wanted to try on the gown they ultimately selected. Most of our brides know within a few minutes if they like a gown or not and sometimes it takes trying on a gown several times to be sure it’s the one.

The Sweet 16

At this age, kids are all about building life long friendships and having fun. What better way to celebrate a Sweet 16th birthday than with a DJ, some cool lighting and maybe even a photo booth. With DJs starting at just $495, photo/video booths starting at $1195, and affordable lighting options, we have DJs and Event Techs available for any teen celebration.

At a recent event, our client asked us to transform the Ruby Hill Golf Club into a nightclub. We were able to create that atmosphere with some ambient uplighting, pattern lights, club-style moving head lights, and our LED light up dance floor.

We personalized their event with a custom gobo that fit their Tiffany & Co theme. Our (2) 70″ flat screens were mounted on the trussing to display a slideshow of the guest of honor’s childhood photos.

Our beautiful Vanity Photo Booth was a big hit as well. Family and Friends enjoyed taking photos and leaving video messages for the birthday girl. Each guests got to take home a keepsake photo-strip from the party.

We also did a very similar setup for a 50th birthday celebration. Above are a couple quick video clips that we took from the party, and below are some photos.

Amos Productions – Because great memories last a lifetime. Who do you know that’s planning a party?

AMOSPRO SHAKE

The Harlem Shake was a popular trend in early 2013, and we are happy to see it go. HOWEVER, the amospro crew sure had fun making one of their own videos. Hope you enjoy!


(More favorite amospro videos will play afterwards)

So. What is this “Harlem Shake” thing, anyway?

Originally, Harlem shake referred to a dance that began in — yes, excellent guess — Harlem, New York back in 1981. It has its roots in an Ethiopian dance, “Eskista.” You can check out what it looks like on YouTube.

The Harlem shake has been referenced in various songs over the years, including one by Brooklyn-based producer Baauer (Harry Rodrigues). That’s the song you’re hearing in all forty million “Harlem Shake” videos, even though participants may not actually be dancing the Harlem shake. We all on the same page so far? Yup? Good.

The so called first Harlem Shake video — featuring four costumed dudes humping air — claims to be the “original”, but it lacks a few of the details particular to the meme. These include the following:

– At the beginning of the video, only one person (often masked) is dancing. Anyone else in the room/area are either still or simply not paying attention to the masked dancer.

– When the bass drops, everyone else joins in on the dancing, usually accompanied by costumes and/or props.

The “craze” (again, oof) has even made it onto Today. Whenever something that originated on the internet makes it onto a morning show, it is sure to become: 1. increasingly ubiquitous and annoying in a very short amount of time, 2. until it implodes and disappears, making way for whatever we’re going to become obsessed with next.
