Men’s Warehouse Teams up with Extreme Makeover

I was so upset to read about the series finale of one of my favorite shows, ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” but so glad the show is going off in great style.  The final episode airs on Friday, January 13th and features the crew not only building a home for a deserving couple but also Men’s Warehouse donating tuxedos to help the couple realize their dream wedding.

The featured couple, Scott Ely and Natalie Gonzalez, was among those left homeless after devastating tornadoes hit Joplin, Mo. last year.  Scott vowed that if they survived the storm, they’d get married.  Thanks to Men’s Warehouse and ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,” the couple can begin married life looking good and living well.

Tune in for the final episode to see a seven home build for Joplin tornado victims, the largest build ever completed, and the story of Scott and Natalie.   I’ll have my box of Kleenex.  Don’t forget yours.

Love the Environment This Valentine’s Day

The recently conducted “What’s on Brides’ Minds” survey by David’s Bridal showed that about half (48%) of brides say they will be more eco-conscious in their wedding plans and more than a quarter (26%) of respondents say they will use locally sourced food or flowers during their reception; another quarter (25%) chose to use recycled materials whenever possible. That’s great news for the event planners of Boston’s First Eco-Friendly Wedding Showcase.


Boston’s first green wedding showcase arrives on February 14th at the Hyatt Harborside, Boston, from 12:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. Sustainability, carbon footprint consciousness, diligence in terms of choice and selection regarding earthly impact are immensely important and representatives from eco-savvy wedding vendors and services will be on hand to help brides plan their weddings in a way that shows their love for the environment as well as their fiancé.


The Elegantly Green Wedding Showcase will also have an informal fashion show, educational seminars, book signing, and a lounge area featuring live music; the Hyatt will host site tours of their facility and after the show guests can enjoy the Hyatt’s Valentine’s Day dinner special.
