B&B Met Gala 2015 Favorites

Here at Bride and Breakfast, we take galas and awards pretty seriously. Why? Because it means I get to swoon over amazing dresses, of course! Waking up today was extra exciting cause I have been looking forward to this year’s Met Gala theme, China: Through a Looking Glass. This oriental twist added a more exotic and out-of-the-norm look for most of the celebrities. True enough, I was not disappointed! We’ve gathered some of our favorite looks this year. Some more oriental than others, yet all qualify for ensembles we’d love to see inspire brides for their wedding dress designs.

Bride and Breakfast Turns 5: The New Look

Here it is, folks! Something we’ve been working on for months now–we are beyond excited to share with you this amazing milestone. In line with our fifth year anniversary this April 2015, we decided to launch a new and improved Bride and Breakfast. Partnering with the super talented design studio NS Design Co. and website developer Gian Aguilar, we were able to create a new look that is all about tastefulness and functionality.

Throughout our five years of blogging, we’ve gotten to know more and more about our readers, and the new logo is really all about the B&B bride. She’s sophisticated yet playful, she is strong, adventurous, and has the heart of a dreamer. And we knew the soul of the blog had to be all about her. We’ve had the wonderful privilege of working with Written Word Calligraphy, and all I can say is that she is a genius! We still get butterflies in our stomach every time we look at it–pretty, pretty, pretty! Yup, this redesign was born through a lot of sleepless nights (and some occasional tear-shedding), but it is all worth it!

As we’ve spent day after day with all of you, we found ourselves realizing the essence of Bride and Breakfast–tastefulness. The new site is cleaner, sleeker, and centered on simplicity… yup, less is more! We also made sure that you will have an easier time navigating the blog and going through our now extensive archive of posts. Stay tuned because in the coming weeks, we will be discussing how these functions will make your inspiration hunting a breeze.

And just when you think this announcement is already a huge deal for us, we have one more big reveal. Today, we get to tick off something in our bucket list–to have another branch in Asia, (drum roll please…). Bride and Breakfast Hong Kong launches today as well! I can’t even begin to explain how exciting this is for us! How cool is it that you have an option to read it in English or Chinese?!

Ok, so I am nervous, excited, happy, hyperventilating and pumped up on adrenaline… I really, really, really hope you like the new look of Bride and Breakfast! On behalf of myself and the whole team behind B&B, let’s pop some virtual champagne and celebrate!

Happy Valentines Day!

If Bride and Breakfast was a holiday you probably know what we would be! Although we pretty much celebrate love everyday, there’s just something extra nostalgic about February 14 for us. So with that, we wish all our awesome readers a happy hearts day. May it be filled with warm embraces and tender kisses!

And guess what? We received the BESSSTTT Valentine’s Day gift ever! Today, we officially hit 100,000 Likes in our Facebook Page! Talk about great timing. So again, thank you!

Hugs and love always!

A Radiant and Romantic Garden Editorial

I’m sure you’ve heard that Radiant Orchid is the color of the year. So when Sunday Morning Studios sent this editorial shoot our way, we were ecstatic. The team behind this editorial shoot nailed the hue with so much flair. For our readers who have been eying this color, here’s a glimpse on how you can have this purple pretty fête. Collaborating with some talented folks in the industry, they came up with a classic garden setup that spells charm all over it. We can’t help but love the pretty elements such as those modern and chic cakes by Lovelots Cakes and those super charming invitations by Kay Aranzanso. So go ahead, bask in the sweet symphony of wonderful elements and details as you swoon over today’s feature.
