January 21, 2017

Yesterday American Bridal held another wonderful bridal showcase at The Farmhouse at The Grand Colonial to help them with their wedding planning. Couples, their friends and family sampled Farmhouse cuisine as they met with almost two dozen wedding vendors from New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York.

Matthew Douglas Photography of Flemington answers many questions from future brides and grooms. He described the services he provides, including coverage of wedding events from the rehearsal dinners to the first look and beyond. An experienced photographer is a must for Farmhouse couples.

Janice of the Jasmine Salon & Spa of Warren NJ demonstrated makeup applications and hair styling as part of each couple’s wedding planning. “The possibilities are endless” she said. “It all depends on the couple’s needs and sense of style. We provide everything from massage to calm those pre-wedding nerves to facials, nails, waxing and hair styling.” She revealed that “Lots of brides bring their whole entourage for a little pre-wedding pampering, and make it a party.” “Don’t leave out the grooms!” she said. “Many come to us for skin care and to get those beards and mustaches trimmed so they will look their best.”
