Simple and timeless- a floor length chiffon gown with delicate details. Accent it with a satin clutch purse and your favorite heels, and even in the best restaurant in New York, you'll have all eyes on you...and your fiance of course.
Sentimental and sweet - a family-treasured and perfectly fitted 1950's era sweater with your grandmother's initials proudly displayed in embroidery. Pair it with a gray pencil skirt, a nice pair of wedges, and the pearl earrings your fiance splurged on for your first Christmas together, and you're ready for a charming evening out with the ones you love the most.
Vintage and one-of-a-kind- a softly flowing sundress or boldly patterned sheath dress you excitedly discovered at your favorite resale store. Add a silk scarf from the same era to your hair or tied around your waist, some comfy flats or an amazing pair of platforms, and a cute shrug or crocheted sweater and you're set to enjoy a memorable night at your favorite off-beat restaurant or bar in total "you" style.
Purely your own and somewhat unexpected- an adventurous or fashion-forward outfit you'll design and sew yourself the week before your night out, a jem of a dress you found at a Betsy Johnson sample sale, or perhaps even a black or deep red trench dress or fitted paint suit paired with blood red lipstick or brightly colored eyeshadow. Whatever you fancy and where ever you end up, you're sure to be set apart from the crowd. And you (and your soon to be Mr.) wouldn't have it any other way!
A gourmet meal served to you by a celebrity chef at the best table in the house in an opulent dining room in the city, complete with a bottle of vintage wine, a table set with silver and candle light, and a centerpiece that showcases the beauty of your love with an overflowing vase of fragrant flowers in full bloom.
A small anniversary party at your favorite neighborhood restaurant or pub. You're sporting your favorite pair of jeans, your closest friends are in town, your fiance has set up everything so that you didn't have to, and the laughter (and possibly beer) is starting to flow. Now it's just time to share some of the love and the memories, and open a few gifts!
A candlelit dinner at a quiet restaurant where everything is just so. The food is perfect, the wine is magical, and the music and your carefully purchased new dress flows softly and smoothly along with the chic and stylish evening.
A charming evening out at the place where you shared your first date, your first kiss, or maybe even the place that he proposed. Whether your friends and family share the evening, or it is is just you and your Mr., the evening is filled with laughter and memories and a few gifts that remind you of the special love you share. But the most enjoyable part is the easy conversation between you and your hubby, about the future you are so lucky to be able to share together.
A bunch of lively and romantic daisies, or maybe a bouquet of pink peonies, tucked sweetly into an old-fashioned milk bottle, antique tea pot, or a graphically designed mosaic glass vase, accompanied by a simple and sweet greeting card or vintage post card.
A few roses and brightly colored seasonal choices loosely wrapped in floral paper, and accompanied by a short note or humorous birthday card.
A bunch of hybrid flowers arranged in an interesting vase or wrapped in an artistically designed paper or ribbon, accompanied by a CD of your favorite songs.
