Look Great on Your Wedding Day With A Personal Trainer in NYC

A person’s wedding day is one that is often fraught with extraordinary amounts of planning and stress particularly in NYC. From the cake to the venue, many couples are overly consumed with their wedding day. It is a special time that is often memorialized in photographs and video many times over.

That said, what many couples stress about the most is how they will look in their wedding dresses or tuxedos. Some even go on extreme diets, which invariably only work for the short term. The result is adding the lost weight back, plus a few more pounds once the crash diet is over.

What many wedding couples have begun to do in the Big Apple is approach their wedding day as a new beginning of being a married person, as well as the day they begin the rest of their lives as a physically fit husband or wife. That type of reinvention is best started with a personal trainer NYC. It’s the -and in health- part of their vows that they’d like to focus on.

New York is the city that never sleeps, but it’s also regarded as one of the fattest cities (it ranked in the top 5 in Men’s Fitness Magazine, 2009). Your health goes beyond just looking good on the wedding day, take it a step further to begin anew or cultivate better exercise habits as a married person. A personal trainer NYC can help not only get a bride or groom to be photograph ready, but also help to put good habits in place for a lifetime of wellness and a fit body.

For sheer vanity purposes, a personal trainer NYC can get a bride or groom to look great in their wedding attire and also give that boost in confidence and stamina needed to plan and execute a wedding. More often than not, many people regret that they didn’t take the time to get in shape prior to the -big day-. Most weddings to one’s spouse only happen one time and you won’t get a second shot to look great on your special day. While many people in NYC are increasingly busy, no one is too busy to get fit especially for the most important moment in person’s life, their wedding day. Remember, before starting any fitness or nutrition program, consult your primary care physician. Schedule your annual physical, so you can get a baseline for your current level of fitness and rule out any other health issues.

Why The Luxury Fashion Show Producer Andres Aquino Picks La Prima Dona Restaurant

USA International Fashion Shows has partnered with New York City restaurant La Prima Donna to present the Martini Fashion Dinner and Champagne Fashion Brunch series of shows. Martini Fashion Dinners are held on selected Monday evenings and Champagne Fashion Brunches take place on selected Sunday afternoons.

Located on West 47th Street, in the heart of New York City’s Times Square and famous theater district, La Prima Donna’s elegant and traditional Tuscan cuisine is updated with Venetian style and modern urban panache. Guests enjoy a truly original and exceptional culinary experience in an ambience of a Venetian Carnivale complete with wall murals and Renaissance art. The popular eatery, operated under the experienced direction of General Manager Mohamed Choayra, has received excellent write ups in the New York Daily News, Playbill, Gotham and A La Carte.

“We are really excited about working with La Prima Donna,” says fashion show producer and company CEO Andres Aquino. “After considering numerous places in New York, we found this venue to be a perfect fit for our shows due to its location, the ambience and decor as well as its exquisite Italian cuisine and, above all, the service of its management and staff.”

The concept behind the events is to bring fashion shows to the people who love fashion, taking them out of the exclusive domain of the trade. The runway shows are combined with fine food and drink making a thoroughly enjoyable experience for the appreciative guests. A major marketing campaign is being launched in an array of media ranging from Playbill to the New York Times along with a heavy Internet presence.

Opportunities are available for sponsors and advertisers who want to reach an affluent fashion-conscious audience. Attending guests come from as far as Australia and as near as midtown Manhattan. They come for special occasions such as family reunions, birthdays and anniversaries, father-daughter outings, and wedding proposals. Tickets to the shows are becoming popular customer appreciation gifts for favored clients and corporate incentives. Other guests include celebrities out for an unusual afternoon or evening activity and buyers looking for unique fashions. The ability to buy right off the runway and meet the designers and models in a relaxed atmosphere are among the features that make these events special. From the Far East to Europe to Canada and South America, the shows have generated a great deal of interest, and people are buying tickets up to six months in advance. Tickets are available through the company website as well as through various ticket outlets worldwide.

“These events are positive experiences for everyone,” notes Andres Aquino. “The audience gets a fabulous fashion show and a delicious meal, the designers get a great platform to show and hopefully sell their creations, the makeup artists and stylists get an opportunity to show their talent, the models get to wear beautiful clothes and add to their runway experience, the restaurant gets to introduce itself to new customers, the sponsors reach a targeted audience that is receptive to their message, and the attending press gets some great content for their editorials.”

The participating designers present some of the best wearable couture and exquisite accessories. Recent shows have featured collections by designers from a host of countries including Austria, South Africa, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Switzerland, Germany, Canada, Russia, Israel, Bulgaria, England, India, and of course the USA. Some already have their lines carried in exclusive stores like Bergdorf Goodman and chic boutiques on Madison Avenue as well as in other fashion capitals. The modest participation fee makes this an attractive opportunity to designers looking to expand their market base and reach the press as well as wholesale and retail buyers.

Press coverage of these events has included many articles in the printed press and Internet as well as TV coverage, sometimes from the fashion point of view and other times from the human perspective. One recent Champagne Fashion Brunch attracted media attention when an 87-year old former fashion model fulfilled a lifelong dream of walking on the runway. She modeled a couture gown made especially for her. Upcoming shows will be making donations to children’s charities.

Producer Andres Aquino is CEO of USA International Fashion Shows and Fashion Syndicate Press, founded in 1997. He is also the founder and creator of New York’s Couture Fashion Week and Bridal Fashion Week, attracting fashion and accessories designers from around the world.

Top 6 Fashion Designers Worth Knowing

Men’s fashion is constantly evolving and so are designers. It’s not uncommon to find modern fashion taking inspiration from classical and often established and innovative looks of the past. Contemporary fashion designers give motivate and inspire us with their ideas and fine creations. The world of fashion will always have its established names, the likes of D&G and Pradas while new and upcoming designers will also be trying to establish their names and leave a mark in the fashion world. In this article I intend to keep you updated on the type of designers you should be watching this year and on my list are four whose work is getting plenty of attention, and whose amazing talent is sure to see them climb the Alexander McQueen fashion ranks very soon.

Ozwald Boateng

Ozwald Boateng is one of London’s highly talented tailors; he’s quickly making a name for himself in America as well. Recognized for his innovative tailoring, he is responsible for introducing swanky Savile Row tailoring to the new generation of fashion seekers in both Europe and America. Clients of Boateng’s classically refined look include Laurence Fishburne, Jamie Foxx and Mick Jagger. His works drips with elegance and sophistication, his collection of suits, coats and blazers among other pieces, with luxurious fabrics and plush colors bring a perfect amount of flair to any man’s closet.

Michael Bastian

Bastian was once employed by Bergdorf Goodman as a fashion director, he then branched out from this role to pursue his own fashion aspirations. His goal was to design clothing that appealed to every man’s daily wear necessities and by looking at his fall debut collection, it’s obvious that he achieved his purpose. Michael Bastian’s collection mirrors the American classic design. He redesigns and adds flair to basic and generally boring pieces. In doing so, men are given impeccably tailored suits, luxurious knits and refined trenches and other outerwear.

Keanan Duffty

While style and elegance are always an appreciated touch to any garment, a rock “n” roll edge is equally as welcome when it comes to men’s fashion. Keanan is quickly becoming the go-to man for such peculiar edginess. Since 2000, Duffty’s designs have been gaining worldwide recognition by celebrities, including Bowie and Justin Timberlake. Given the rock “n” roll theme of Duffty’s apparel, his collections are always a little bit glam, a touch chaotic and a whole lot of fun. Combining cutting-edge designs, unconventional fabrics and British iconography, Duffty’s designs help the inner rock star emerge from the wearer.

Tim Hamilton

Tim Hamilton’s mission is to bring American sensibility back to men’s clothing and to add luxury to staple pieces. Conventional items are given a modern flair, taking the preppy-dressed man to a new level of conservative wear.

His designs are preppy and entirely masculine providing a back to the fundamentals to fashion. Denims, cardigans and Polos may sound like a conservative combination but when brought together with contemporary design, such pieces give an updated look to a man’s wardrobe.

The Biggest Wedding Mistakes You Can Make

When planning your wedding, there are a couple of mistakes you can avoid. Some of them are common sense and some are just acquiring the correct information and following through with it. Heres some information that could help a bride avoid making mistakes when planning a wedding in Melbourne.

Not sticking to your budget. This is a big one. Some brides start reserving venues and caterers before even knowing how much they have to spend. Dont reserve something and think youll balance everything out later; it doesnt always work out that way. If you reserve something youll have trouble paying for, then youll have to make a big cut somewhere else in your budget. Sit down and figure out exactly what your budget is going to be and then stick to it.

Every area has its own rules for marriage license. In Australia for example, a notice of Intention to Marry must be filed at least one month before and no more than 18 months and given to your chosen authorized celebrant. Also specific words are to be used during the ceremony. You will need to give your celebrant evidence of date and place of birth, identity and the divorce decree for any previous marriages for each party. If any of this information is missing, then your marriage license can be held up or not issued. Find out what the legal requirement s are for a marriage license in your area from a reputable source.

Another mistake which can be made is not allowing ample time to order your wedding dress. If your dress is going to be custom made, at least 6 months before the big day you need to be looking. Even if your dress is off the rack, it will need alterations of one kind or another. Make sure you have enough time scheduled to have it fitted properly. Your bridesmaids will need to be fitted for alterations also, keep that in mind when considering your time table.

When planning for your wedding venues in Melbourne, make sure to match up the number of your wedding guests with your reception numbers. You cant assume that X numbers are coming and then have 20 extra people show up. Reception venues have a seating limit according to the fire code. You dont want the embarrassment of having to turn people away because you miscounted.

Pushing to the back burner where out of town guests are going to stay and then not blocking enough hotel rooms in time. You need to call the local hotels and find one which will block an area of rooms for your wedding date by the eighth month mark. When sending out the wedding invitations, include the hotel information. Youre not responsible for paying for the rooms; the guests will pay for them when making the reservation to actually book the room.

These are just a few things to keep your wedding plans running along smoothly. Keep your list current and cross off things as you progress toward your wedding day and youll be fine!
