The Creative & Classy Bridal Shower

We recently attended the bridal shower for one of our matchmaking couples.  This event was so special to us because we really adore the bride and groom.  They are both great individuals and make a wonderful couple.  While the focus of such an event is on the bride, we have to mention the amazing food, décor and extras that went into making this party so memorable.  The warm color scheme set the tone for a lovely ladies lunch....more

Tips For Choosing Your Bridesmaids

After getting engaged, I immediately began to think about the women I would pick to stand up next to me on my wedding day.  While about 20 women came to my mind, I knew a bridal party that big would be ridiculous to manage!  I decided to narrow my 20 down to 5 with the following criteria: The Family ...more

Something Blogged: Choosing Your Bridesmaids

The moment I got engaged, I immediately started thinking about my bridal party. It scared me and excited me at the same time. I wanted to make good choices. I mean, don't get me wrong, I have a ton of absolutely amazing friends that mean the world to me, but I couldn't pick all of them. I definitely had in mind the qualities I wanted my bridesmaids to have and this helped make a few girls stand out in my mind.  This is the most important day of my life. It will be a day I would never forget and the biggest party of my life....more

Boston Fusion Wedding Jan 2012

The bride and groom whose June 2012 wedding I am currently working on are getting married on my favorite Boston area beach. Crane's Beach is a gorgeous venue, the Castle is stunning! The bridesmaids and there are eight of them, will be resplendent in halter dresses with sari borders cut out from Indian handloomed silk fabrics (five to six yards of these unique fabrics comprise a "sari"). The bride's bridesmaid and friend found me on the web and several meetings and fit sessions later, we are looking at seeing the final designs completed by the end of February....more

Shubrah.com and the Boston Fusion Wedding Blog

Reading all the inspirational blogs in January 2012 about career changes and goals, motivated me to start this blog. I started my web based fusion fashion business in 2008. Not the best time in the economic history of this world to have a start-up. But I stuck to it as it had always been my dream to design custom made east meets west weddings. Using eastern fabrics (recycled saris) and western silhouettes, I was able to create something unique, colorful and eco-friendly for the my clients. ...more

Judd Apatow Puts on Some Panties

 Having turned 18 at the birth of the Sex and the City era, college and adulthood came at atime when sexual expression and alcohol could be worn like Girl Scout badges, proudly and with accomplishment. It was the best of times (that I could remember) and the worst of times (that were gladly hazy). The graduates of the millennium celebrated leaving the sophomoric comedy ofAmerican Pie and blissfully embraced the gratuitous ass shots of Will Ferrell. And just as quickly as we got on “double-secret-probation” in college,” we just as quickly matriculated from it. Now working stiffs and pissed off about having $160,000 in college debt, Judd Apatow appeared to ease our pain with raunchy and outrageous humor....more
