The Food-Focused Bride: Down to the Wire

The closer I get to my wedding, the fewer things there are to eat. Most likely this is because I have cut myself off from all of my favorite treats, but it’s also because we’re done with the tasting, sampling and testing portion of the wedding planning process. From here on out, it’s all about [...]

The Food-Focused Bride: Menu Tasting

A food-lovers’ dream: an afternoon of tasting dishes made just for her (and her fiancé). That’s how I spent my Friday afternoon, totally forgoing my wedding diet and eating just about everything in sight at East Hampton Point. The restaurant’s new chef, James Carpenter, was one of the Hamptons’ first chefs to focus on local, [...]

The Food-Focused Bride: The Making of a Cheese Table

After my Cheese Bridal Shower, I knew I also wanted to have a cheese table display during the cocktail hour at the wedding. Lucy’s Whey is a store that stocks only American-made cheeses, and coincidentally enough, they have a location both in my office building and about a mile from my venue in East Hampton, [...]

The Food-Focused Bride: A Food-Filled Bachelorette

From cheap eats to refined dining, my bachelorette weekend was incredibly food-filled, and I wouldn’t have had it any other way. After spending the day at Spa Castle, a low-key and well-priced day spa in Queens, my bridesmaids and I drove to Flushing, Queens, which is home to a wonderful array of Chinese and Korean [...]

The Food-Focused Bride: Honeymoon Eats Preview

While I’ve had fun planning my wedding and am so looking forward to the big day, I might actually be even more excited to go on my honeymoon. I check out photos of the resorts daily and am constantly day dreaming about the whole experience. In true food-focused fashion, I’ve been researching all of the [...]

The Food-Focused Bride: Locally Sourced Wedding Gift Bags

Since we’re having a destination wedding (we live in New York City but are getting married 2 hours away in East Hampton, N.Y.), I wanted to create welcome bags filled with local products. These items can really start to add up, especially when almost every guest is booking a hotel room.  I picked my four [...]

The Food-Focused Bride: Wine and Cheese Bridal Shower

When my aunt offered to throw me a bridal shower in New York City, I didn’t hesitate with my venue selection. I’ve taken classes at the Artisinal Cheese Center before and always thought it would be a great place to have a party. Having been to my fair share of showers over the years, I [...]

The Food-Focused Bride: Getting in Wedding Shape and Eating Right

While I’m usually a healthy and active person, the thought of walking down a long aisle in front of more than a hundred people has prompted me to kick up my workout routine and focus more on eating healthy. Since I got engaged eight months ago, I’ve been going to the gym a few times [...]

The Food-Focused Bride: Cocktails, Wine and Beer

I am getting married in 81 days. Yes, the countdown is on. And while I’ve been slowly trying (albeit unsuccessfully) to phase alcohol out of my wedding diet, I’m certainly looking forward to all of the options on the big day. First, the signature cocktail. As I’m not a fan of naming my drink after [...]
