Fête: The Wedding Experience by Jung Lee

Fête: The Wedding Experience
by Jung Lee

A fresh take on weddings for today’s modern couples
Filled with practical tips to help anyone at any income level plan the wedding of their dreams

Extraordinary weddings are the ones that bring the marrying couple’s vision to vivid life. Every element-—venue, music, food, decor—resonates with meaning, reflecting the pair’s own taste and style. Putting all those elements together in a way that ensures a magical time for the wedding party and all the guests entails much more than just ticking off the boxes on a preset checklist. It requires introspection to discern the bride and groom’s true wishes—and it takes the impeccable orchestration of the total experience.

By focusing on introspection and orchestration—and by enabling couples to realize their wedding-day fantasies, no matter where they live and no matter what their budget—Jung Lee and her company, Fête, have rocketed to the top of the wedding-planning industry. In Fête: The Wedding Experience, Lee shares her secrets with every bride- and groom-to-be, walking them through the same planning process she’s developed for her sophisticated clientele.

Knowing that every memorable wedding is uniquely personal, Lee tells the stories of eight Fête-produced weddings, each highlighting a different aspect of planning. Lavishly illustrated with 150 stunning photographs, Fête: The Wedding Experience will provide endless inspiration as you plan the fête of your dreams.

Bridal Beauty Secrets, from In Style Weddings, Spring 2008 Issue

In Style Weddings, Spring 2008 Issue

Peek inside the Spring 2008 issue of In Style Weddings with "Bridal Beauty Secrets".

Replenish Your Pout
Reapplying many layers of lipstick will make lips dry (on top of all that kissing, drinking and eating). A non-greasy tinted lip balm in the same shade as your lipstick isn't as messy or prone to feathering as gloss or lipstick.

Juice Beauty SPF 15 Tinted Lip Moisturizersicon, $15/set; beauty.comicon

Secure Your Strands

1. Back-combing creates a solid foundation for your headpiece. Spritz the comb of your headpiece with hairspray before attaching it.
2. Create shine, not an oil slick. Mist your brush with a shine-enhancement product, then go over tresses gently.
3. Tame baby flyaways with clear brow gel.

Match Skin Care to the Season

Spring and summer brides should switch to a lighter moisturizer to keep makeup from sliding. Fall and winter brides should depend on a tinted moisturizer to warm up and even out your complexion.

Susanne Lang Midnight Orchid Eau de Parfum
Apply Fragrance to Last

Splurge on perfume, as opposed to cologne or eau de toilette, advises Susanne Lang, founder of Susanne Lang Parfumerie in Toronto. Perfume is stronger and longer-lasting than lighter products, which evaporate faster.

Susanne Lang Midnight Orchid Eau de Parfum, $50; Beauty Bridge.

Give a Pedicure Staying Power

Choose a shimmery (but not overly glittery) polish, like Orly Nail Lacquer in Sheer Beauty. The mica particles cling to the nail bed, so the polish tends to last longer and chip less.

Orly Nail Lacquer, $3.49;

Picture Perfect: How to Look Your Best on Your Wedding Day

Luminous skin is a must for any glowing bride. Many brides-to-be focus on the makeup the day of the wedding, but in fact, to attain that healthy glow the process should begin weeks in advance.
Organic and nutrient-dense treatments are essential in preparing the skin for both in person and an on-camera, show-stopping complexion. We suggest you the following simple, yet effective protocol:

Begin the following ritual 3 weeks before ytour big day:

Site of the Day: Wedding Window

Wedding Window provides Beautiful Custom Wedding Websites that are easy to set up and affordable!
Having a personal wedding website can be a true time-saver for both engaged couples and invited guests. Planning even the simplest wedding can involve a great deal of correspondence. With that in mind, having a custom wedding website can be the key to a stress-free experience.

Keep your friends, family and bridal party informed by posting all of your wedding details from accommodation ideas and directions to online RSVP and gift registry information. Not only are you able to upload an unlimited number of personal photos, but you can also customize your website even more by naming your web pages anything you wish. Allow your wedding party to correspond with you through web pages specifically designated for that purpose.

Wedding Websites are a must for every couple that is soon-to-be married.

One of our most popular features is the ability to accept multiple RSVPs. With this capability, you can receive responses for everything from your bachelor/bachelorette party to your shower to a pre-wedding party.

The cost of stamps, rsvp cards and envelopes alone can more than pay for your personal wedding website. All of your responses will be stored right in your account so you don't have to keep track of each response yourself. You can even export your RSVP responses if you wish to have your own copy on your local computer.

Our wedding websites also let you keep track of your visitors through a convenient visitor login field. You can request that your guests sign in with their name or email address. If you opt to require email addresses, you can even keep your guests informed with a simple email blast to everyone who has visited your site. Our password protection is unmatched. The Wall Street Journal even noted that our "Security is like Fort Knox." You can elect to password protect your entire site, specific pages or nothing at all.

Don't forget to send out those save-the-date cards to inform your guests that you have a wedding website. Simply include your easy to remember website address and direct your guests to visit your wedding site for future updates.
