Pegeen designs the flower girl dresses for Olympic Skater Tara Lipiniski

It’s official.  Tara Lipinski marries the love of her life, Todd Kapostasy in South Carolina today and can finally announce that we created the flower girl and junior bridesmaid’s dresses for the ceremony. “We keep the confidentiality of our work with celebrities until after their events due to privacy issues.  I will say working with Tara and her mom, Pat, brought back a lot of memories for me as my mom played such a huge part during the early years of my business.  Every time I would get off the phone with the Lipinskis I couldn’t help but think of the collaboration my mom and I had with Pegeen, so for me it was refreshing how Tara and her mom worked together.  Quite a few times I would get off the phone with them during a conference and shed a few tears, missing my mom so.” – Pegeen’s founder & head designer, Marg Hyland said.

Although we don’t want to spoil the surprise for the designs quite yet, here is a preview of the sketch for the 2-year-old (one of 4 flower girl dresses, each one a little different). We will be sharing, when appropriate, more photos of these exquisite, custom made, exclusive fabrics and dresses created by the American designer Pegeen, just for Tara’s wedding.  Pegeen has made many outfits for celebrity client’s children as well as royal visits and can make dresses fit for your little celebrity






Wonderful Nutcracker Costume Pix from Eastern Shore Dance Academy

We just received these beautiful images from Eastern Shore Dance Academy where we had designed a Clara costume for their Nutcracker Ballet performance last December. We really appreciated being able to make this dress for them and I must admit, it is so much fun when we get to play around with the laces and trims to create something unique and exclusively theirs.  When we make costumes for The Nutcracker Ballet they are individualized, particularly Clara’s costume so every ballet school’s dresses vary from one school to another and based on their color scheme and backdrops.   This dress is Clara’s dress style 723 from The Nutcracker Collection.

Flower girl dresses rushed to Saudi Arabia

We were so pleased to receive today photographs of a customer’s wedding in Saudi Arabia where our customer had ordered dresses for her flower girls in a rush.  That is quite remarkable because no only did we have to make these flower girl dresses quickly but we had to have the dresses shipped in a way so that they would not be super expensive for them to go halfway across the globe!  So we got these dresses out in 4 days to accommodate the tight schedule.

The dress she chose was style 402 in Mango orange and Boing (hot pink) silk with shocking pink color of tulle and lined in mango orange silk.  I love the personality on the little sister (below) and I’m sure she is a handful! And don’t you love those pink elbow length gloves?  When asked the customer said she was about to purchase them at the mall – some mall because they are sure hard to find over here!  And how about those flowers on that wall (right and left, top photo).


Look at this Flower Girl Dress photography shoot by the wonderful Christine Cornwell

I don’t know about you but I think that the location for a wedding is just as important as choosing a great photographer. I was stuck by this when I revisited one of our favorite flower girl dresses, Style 921 from The Fairy Tale Collection, our featured flower girl dress of the week.  I first met Christine Cornwell at my nephew’s wedding and her work was so good that we chose to feature the wedding, held at Spindletop Hall a few years back.  We also submitted the wedding to Bridal Guide who included the wedding in a wonderful spread.  Usually, we are pretty lucky and receive wonderful photography from our bride’s so when Chris contacted me and asked me to send some flower girl dresses to her in Kentucky I knew I would receive beautiful shots afterwards.  Little did I know that these would turn out to be truly pieces of artwork fit for a wall!

Chris does travel to destination as well as shoots in KY and we feel you should check out her work here.

For more images from this shoot – click here.

Lastly, she did a few other dresses for us – and we hope you explore those images as well.  Click on styles 920, 932, 934 for more.



It’s May Day! Thank your teachers.

When I was a little girl in Collingswood NJ, my father had me visit his old teacher, Ms. Tobin, who lived down the street from my beloved childhood home on May 1st.  He taught us that May Day was a day to celebrate flowers and love and thanking someone special, and especially teachers, in your life.

We would go into my father’s garden gathering up Delphinium, Peony and Violets and make a Construction Paper cone.  We would fill the cone to the brim and run to Ms. Tobin’s down the street, ring the door bell and run fast away.  It always made me feel so giggly and of course, I passed on this tradition to my children.  So, today, with one son away in a trip to the Carolinas and another strapping football player going to practice I have the task of getting flowers for their teachers today (in the ball player’s case – the coaches wife) so that they too can remember their teachers in our family tradition.

My father also made me MAD for gardening.  I was lucky to have purchased a rambling old Tudor Home in NJ Continue reading →

Who or rather What I admire in the Bridal Industry….

BrideTide had recently put a challenge up to wedding professionals to write about someone in the industry that they admire.  I am positive that there will be those who will write about someone who they really believe deserves mention and I can hardly wait to read everyone’s posts.  That said, however, and being one of the very first companies to get onto the internet in the mid-1990’s I am going to do something a little more TIME MAGAZINE like and instead, name what I believe has helped, or more dramatically, changed the wedding industry more than any other thing and that is our friend, THE INTERNET.
