The Peninsula New York has created a specialty package for brides by partnering with renowned bridal stylist Julie Sabatino, founder of The Stylish Bride. The Peninsula New Yorklaunched their “Dress Shopping with the Stylish Bride” package – the ultimate dress shopping experience! This package includes a pampering stay at The Peninsula New York plus a day and a half of shopping in the bridal fashion capital of the world with Julie Sabatino, the innovator behind the industry of “Wedding Fashion Styling” and whose brides fly in from around the world to shop with her in New York City. As a renowned expert in the field, Julie is frequently quoted as a bridal fashion expert in publications such as The New York Times, Martha Stewart Weddings, InStyle, Glamour and New York Magazine amongst others, and has styled numerous high-profile and celebrity brides since founding her business in 2003. Brides begin their experience with a pre-shopping phone consultation where Julie will get to know the bride’s personal style and overall vision for the wedding. Next, Julie assembles a customized itinerary tailored to the bride’s individual style. Once the bride arrives at The Peninsula New York, she will be “showered” with welcome gifts including the “Bridal Shopping Tote by The Stylish Bride”, which provides all of the necessities for a luxurious dress shopping experience including a bathrobe and slipper set, a long-line corset in her size, a folder for tearsheets, hand sanitizer, hair ties, snacks and water. They are then off in a private sedan for eight hours of personalized shopping with Julie to the top bridal salons and designers’ studios. At every stop the bride will experience VIP treatment including: working with Julie’s hand-selected consultant at each store, pre-selected gowns pulled for them by Julie that fit with their personal style, access to the designers and store owners, and a celebratory Champagne toast once the gown is chosen. Some of the stores that are often visited include: Mark Ingram’s Bridal Atelier, Bergdorf Goodman, Gabriella New York, Carolina Herrera and Vera Wang – all personal, longtime contacts of Julie’s. After a day of shopping, a night of pampering awaits at The Peninsula New York with luxurious accommodation and a relaxing spa treatment for two at The Peninsula Spa. To top off the excitement of the day, the bride and her guest will have a coveted reserved table at the hotel’s chic rooftop bar and terrace, Salon de Ning, complete with a celebratory bottle of Veuve Clicquot Champagne. The next morning, they will complete the dress shopping experience by attending the remaining appointments, revisiting the bride’s favorite dresses from the day before (if needed), and ultimately purchasing the gown of her dreams.
