May 23–When it comes to married life…decisions, decisions. Wondering if ladies are more inclined to take their husband’s last name completely, keep their maiden name as their last name (lots of celebs do this), or perhaps hyphenate? And what do men prefer? Chime in on today’s Coffee Break with Tracey & Shulie!

Robbins Brothers Coffee Break with Tracey & Shulie--May 23, 2011

Sept 30: Last night from 6-9pm, the Four Seasons hotel in Beverly Hills was the place to be for all brides-to-be. Dove Deodorant and Brides.com hosted a wonderful evening of bridal brilliance and asked Robbins Brothers to host the Sparkle Station. We said…of course!

Highlights of the evening included a fashion show with gorgeous Monique Lhuillier bridal gowns and manicures by OPI. Our Sparkle Station showcased lovely fashion jewelry by designers Tacori, Simon G., Lori Bonn & Rebecca. And we even cleaned our guests’ rings. Last but not least, we mingled with Dove Deodorant spokesperson & celebrity wedding planner Mindy Weiss, an absolute doll!

August 24–Lately I’m in a bridal gown state of mind. I have two friends who are on the hunt for wedding dresses, and we spent several hours this past weekend searching the latest fashion magazines & even online to see what’s hot. One of my friends is traditional while the other likes to be shocking and invent her own rules. Needless to say, it was quite fun and also entertaining to help my daring friend search for her dream gown. Below are some looks we came across. Umm…exactly. This will be one interesting wedding!  TL

August 2–There were more exciting celebrity weddings this past weekend. Truly it’s a summer of love for the rich & famous. Chelsea Clinton married Marc Mezvinsky in an eye-gripping Vera Wang bridal gown. I was so looking forward to seeing this gown; I just KNEW it would be stunning.

Meanwhile, platinum-selling rapper T.I. and singer & reality star, Tiny, tied the knot in front of family and celebrity friends in Miami Beach. The bride and groom wore white and arrived in a horse-drawn carriage. Robbins Brothers wishes both couples a lifetime of love and happiness!

July 28–Is it just me or is everyone in America anticipating the former first daughter’s wedding?? Sidenote: I love the Clinton family! I’ll never forget when I blew President Clinton a kiss during a Robbins Brothers Chicago business trip with my boss (she thought I was crazy)!

Anyway, the high-profile nuptials of Chelsea Clinton and fiancé Marc Mezvinsky (Stanford alum who works on Wall Street) has been the latest buzz, much like the couple’s Nov. ’09 engagement in which everyone searched Google for “Chelsea Clinton’s engagement ring.” Well, the official countdown has begun for their July 31 wedding which has been rumored to take place at the 50-acre Astor Courts Estate overlooking the Hudson River in Rhinebeck, N.Y. I must admit, I’ll be glued to the TV this weekend for all the updates. More than anything I just want to see Chelsea’s wedding dress! I’m sure it’ll be nothing less than perfect.  TL

July 12–Robbins Brothers congratulates Denver Nuggets star Carmelo Anthony and TV personality LaLa Vazquez on their magical wedding this past Saturday at Cipriani in New York City. The couple said “I Do” in front of nearly 320 guests including celebrities Serena Williams, Kim Kardashian, LeBron James & others. Mindy Weiss, event planner to the stars, did a fabulous job for the occasion which will be featured in an upcoming VH1 reality show.

We’d also like to congratulate country singer Carrie Underwood and her hockey hunk Mike Fisher who also tied the knot this weekend at the Ritz-Carlton Lodge in Greensboro, Georgia. Wishing both couples a lifetime of love & happiness!

July 8–Is this the new trend?? It’s fun but exhausting! If I were a guest don’t think I would have lasted too long.

June 16–For a lot of people, work is a second home, right? Well I could only smile when I heard about the wedding of Carolyn Weatherly and Audwin Mosby, a couple in their mid-50s who decided to get married at their local Home Depot in Lake Forest, CA this past Saturday (the second wedding ever at the chain). Both work there, along with her son and his daughter, and since coworkers are like family, why not?

The lovely pair married in the garden department in front of 100 guests including some shoppers. Just shows that when it comes to love we make our own rules! And how cool is Home Depot now. Lightbulbs, grills, paint, washing machines & now weddings! Congratulations to the Mosbys from everyone at Robbins Brothers. We wish you well.

June 2– Okay I finally admitted to my friends that I love this show! And it’s not just because Robbins Brothers rings were featured, I promise. The wedding special made me want more. I sure do hope there’s a season 2 in the works. 🙂  TL
