Four Branches of StarDust Celebrations

Do you know the many facets of StarDust Celebrations? Our vision has always been to focus on a bride and her entire wedding community to help contribute to a wonderful wedding planning experience, whether she simply chooses to buy her gown from one of our salons or she elects to have us help her with every last detail of her big day. Under the umbrella of our “parent company” StarDust Celebrations, we present StarDust Wedding Planning, the StarDust Bridal Salon, LuLu’s Bridal Boutique and A Bridal Closet. Below is a little intro to each of these different but equally special pieces of our business.

StarDust Wedding Planning – Wedding planning was our initial foray into the wedding industry. Founders Marsha and Jenny shared many years’ experience planning events and a passion for weddings. Our goal has always been to enable wedding planning to be fun, not stressful, for our clients. StarDust’s certified wedding planners deliver beautiful, imaginative weddings…every time! With planning packages such as Fly Me to the Moon; Starry, Starry Night; and Twinkle, Twinkle…how could we not?! We are pleased to welcome the latest member to our planning team: Evie Cozart. While Evie is new at StarDust, she has been planning events for six years and weddings for more than three. She is a wonderful addition to our family! Learn more about our wedding planning services on our website.

StarDust Bridal Salon – The StarDust Bridal Salon is 18,000 square feet of “all wedding, all the time” and offers the most discerning brides accessories and gowns from the top names in wedding couture. The salon, located in West Plano carries phenomenal gowns from world renowned designers in the $1,000-$20,000 price range. Most of these couture gowns are made of 100% silk. The StarDust Salon also carries several lines of the biggest names in bridesmaids, mother of the occasion gowns and a full selection of elegant tuxedos. Additionally, we offer all the necessary accessories, from shoes and jewelry to veils and attendant gifts. Learn more about the bridal utopia that is StarDust here.

LuLu’s Bridal Boutique - Located in a 110-year-old Victorian house in Uptown Dallas, LuLu’s Bridal Boutique is quaint and unlike any other bridal salon. The beautiful bridal gowns we offer at LuLu’s are priced $600-$2,000 and come from world-renowned design houses. From sleek sheaths to lacey A-lines to tulle covered ballgowns and everything in between…in our numerous offerings you are sure to find a gown that you will love. LuLu’s also carries several stylish lines of bridesmaids’ dresses. Learn more about the unique LuLu’s experience here.

A Bridal Closet –The newest addition to our StarDust Celebrations family, A Bridal Closet is our outlet store, where ladies can discover beautiful bridal gowns and special occasion dresses at 40% to 75% off original prices. The salon offers sample couture wedding gowns from designers such as Lazaro, Alvina Valenta, Maggie Sottero, Pronovias and Allure, just to name a few! As samples, these gowns have been tried on by other clients, but never worn outside of our salon. All are in very good to excellent condition. ABC, as we affectionately call it, is the best of both worlds – a wonderful place to shop for a bride who is on a budget but strongly desires a couture gown. You can learn more about A Bridal Closet on our new and improved soon-to-be-launched website. In the meantime, call the shop for more info: 469.366.0788.

No matter what your wedding needs are, you are sure to find something within the StarDust Celebrations family. Not sure where to start? Just give us a call and we’d be happy to help direct you. Happy planning!

Trend Alert: Whoopie Pies as Reception Dessert Alternative

Desserts take the cake, don’t they? We know most guests love being at the reception for the dancing, the fabulous food and of course the chance to visit with family and friends. But we also know – or at least suspect – that many guests secretly look soooo forward to…yep, the cake! Classic wedding cake is always fabulous at a reception, but maybe you’re looking for something a little sweet and surprising for either the groom’s cake or favors. Cupcakes are great, because let’s face it – who can resist the scrumptious little treat that is so fun and nostalgic? But they’ve been done. A lot.

Why not do something crazy and unexpected like say, a whoopie pie?! My stars, what on earth is a whoopie pie, you might ask. Fairly new to this part of the country, whoopie pies hail from New England, and they are making their way across the nation. All we can say is, what took so long?!

So, back to the question of what it is…Is it a pie? Not even close! Sort of like cake, kind of a cookie, a whoopie pie is a delilsh little “cake sandwich” of two cake-like cookies with ooey, gooey filling joining them together in a little taste of heaven.

Let’s further consider the pros of this fab little treat. First of all, how stinkin’ fun is that to say: “whoopie pies”?! That’s right, so fun! And can you say delicious and very versatile? A few bakeries around Dallas are starting to carry options like Red Velvet with Sweet Cream filling or Bread Pudding or the traditional version of Chocolate with Marshmallow filling. But with the mix-and-match possibilities of many different cake and filling offerings, the sky’s the limit! And finally, how many weddings have YOU been to where the couple has offered whoopie pies? Probably none. If you’re the bride looking for that ace in the hole, never been done detail, that’s reason enough to consider these fabulous little not-so-pie-like-after-all treats!
