Haute in the Hamptons

We're wrapping up a few things in the office so we can head to the Hamptons for a long weekend.  Along with being the "playground for the rich and famous," the Hamptons are known for its beautiful beaches bordered by farms, vineyards and meadows.  I'm excited about our trip (it's been awhile!) so I thought about sharing some Hamptons wedding inspiration. Can you imagine getting hitched in the backyard of one of these beautiful estates? 

Love the bridge over the pool connecting the Ceremony tent with the Reception tent!

 And what to pack?!  Wardrobe Wire shares some tips:

 Summertime in New York means one thing……THE HAMPTONS!! Where else can you drive within 90 minutes of the city and find sprawling estates that rival Beverly Hills, gorgeous sandy beaches, and some of the best shopping on the right coast?! The Hamptons is everything that is country club chic. Think Palm Beach and Nantucket with a twist of Palm Springs. Think lots of seer-sucker, popped collars, and stripes.  Come Memorial Day, everyone in Manhattan is packing their weekend bags and off to the Hamptons. With all of the glamorous events that take place around the Hamptons from Mercedes Benz Polo to hobnobbing at Pink Elephant, you will want to be prepared. Basically there are 2 main styles in the Hamptons. There is the glamorama for those who treat the Hamptons as the City on the Beach. And then there is the more laidback approach, the beachy/surfer style, for those who are looking to kick back.  Depending on which style you choose, I recommend packing the following items.  For the glamorama, by day it's all about fabulous sundresses, wide brimmed floppy hats, and espadrilles (preferably Louboutins). For the men, a great polo and some seer-suckered pants is a perfect look. For the beach or pool, sophisticated one pieces, jeweled tunics, and big glamorous sunglasses go a long way. For the men, if you pack stripes and some navy swimming trunks, you're all set. 

Thanks for the tips!  I can't wait to hit one of my favorite boutiques once we're there, Calypso.
