Cool Down in NKY

When the sun is shining and the temperature is rising, you need a place to cool down. Here are some great spots in NKY, perfect for chillin’ on a hot summer day.

Take a Dip

When it’s time to cool off, go to the Florence Aquatic Center, where you can float down a lazy river, splash in the zero-depth pool or zip down the spiral slide. Families love to frolic in the spray grounds and under the sprinkling “funbrellas.” You can drop in with a daily pass or buy a membership. You don’t even have to live in Florence to enjoy this classic summertime experience.

Skating By

Lace up your skates at Northern Kentucky Ice Center in Crescent Springs and spin (or slide) your way across the ice. They offer daily public skating sessions, perfect for everyone, from the wobbly-kneed beginner to the next Olympic figure skating hopeful. 

Penguin Palooza

Be transported to the arctic home of playful penguins at Newport Aquarium. Watch the adorable waddlers as they hop up rocky, snowcapped cliffs and slide down a snowbank into icy water.

Cone by Cone

Northern Kentucky knows ice cream, which is why the options here are so delicious. We’ve got Graeter’s and Cold Stone, of course. You can also indulge in more than a dozen homemade flavors at Schneider’s Sweet Shop in Bellevue or Piper’s Café in MainStrasse offers hundreds of flavors of their creamy soft serve.

Super Slushie

Frosthaus, in Covington’s Roebling Point neighborhood, specializes in boozy (and non-boozy) frozen drinks. Be sure to sip carefully to avoid the dreaded brain freeze!

Cupful of Heaven

For the creamiest frozen treat around, come to Golden Gelato in downtown Covington. They make all their gelato and sorbet from scratch using traditional Italian methods and locally sourced ingredients. You will love the flavor selection and you may even want to try an Affogato, a scoop of vanilla gelato topped with a shot of espresso.

NKY Ice Balls

A summertime favorite that is sure to cool you down is the ice ball, available at Sweet Tooth Candies & Ice Cream on Newport’s West Side. What’s an ice ball? Picture a scoop of ice cream covered in a snow cone, giving you the smooth texture of the ice cream with the syrupy, crunch of the snow cone ice. Get creative with the flavor combinations and you’ll see why this dessert is perfect for hot afternoons.

This summer, let Northern Kentucky cool you down and chill you out.

We Love Our #FabBrides

Fabulous Bridal Bride and Gown
Cheers to our Brides!

This blog is dedicated to all our 2020/2021 #FabBrides. Planning a wedding isn’t usually the easiest thing to do and this year has made that no different! Our beautiful brides have had to make decisions this year that drastically changed their wedding plans. Whether you planned to hop on a plane and say your vows on a gorgeous beach in Hawaii or you planned to say your vows in the church you grew up in, things might have looked a little different. Your 200-person guest list might have turned out to be only 10. The idea of asking your seamstress to make a bridal mask out of extra fabric from your gown probably never crossed your mind. With so many changes no one saw coming, you handled each of them with grace.

What our #FabBrides Taught Us.

If we have learned one thing from our #fabbrides and their families this year, it is what love truly looks like. In the midst of a crazy year, our brides have had to make sacrifices to be able to say the vows they have been waiting years to say. To be able to stand in front of their closest family and friends and marry their best friend. Our brides have shown us what true love looks like.

What’s Next for our #FabBrides?

Even though we may not know what 2021 will have in store, we know it will bring us love and many happy brides. We are so excited to be able to continue helping our brides say “yes” to their dream wedding gown. We love being able to be a part of what is going to make their big day so special. So, we are saying “cheers” to our beautiful and brave brides on their journey to the aisle! Here’s to love! #FabBrides

Buying A Wedding Dress Tips and Tricks

Bride Trying on a Wedding Dress
Buying a Wedding Dress Tips and Tricks

So, it’s your first-time shopping for your bridal gown and you have a million questions and emotions. For most brides, this is finally when the planning begins to feel real and it’s setting in that they’re actually doing this. You’re getting married and you must find a wedding dress! Here are some tips and tricks to keep in mind when buying a wedding dress.

It’s Okay to be Nervous. This is a Big Decision!

Our Fabulous Bridal brides always tell us how nervous they are on their way back to the fitting room. It is okay to be nervous; you’ve never done this before. Shopping for your bridal gown can be a very intimidating thing. Here’s what you need to know.

Keep an Open Mind and Do Your Homework!

Go into your appointment with an open mind and trust your stylist. Do your homework beforehand and find out what designers and styles are carried at the store you’re shopping at and come with photos. This gives your stylist somewhere to start and helps you not be so overwhelmed when you arrive to the store. Let your stylist take it from there and don’t be shy about telling them what you like and don’t like in each dress. Even though you might not feel like you’re making sense, you are! These small likes and dislikes will help your stylist eliminate most dresses for you.

Try on As Many Dresses as You Want!

One of our favorite things to do during down time here at the Fabulous Bridal is to, of course, try on wedding dresses! When we get new wedding dresses in, we want to know exactly how they look, fit and feel on. A wedding dress can be very deceiving on the hanger for so many reasons. We want to see exactly how they fit on a body so we can better shop for our brides during their appointments. Until you try on the wedding dress, you won’t know exactly how it fits your shape and style.  The bride is truly what makes a gown so trust your instincts!

In-House Alterations Simplifies the Process

At Fabulous Bridal, we do all alterations in-house.  We are invested in the final result! Our team of stylists and seamstresses are familiar with all of the Essense by Australia wedding dresses on our rack and know what alterations are possible and what’s not.


It’s okay to be nervous.  But, make sure to have fun.  You’re shopping for a wedding dress, after all.  This is the moment you have been waiting for.  When you put it on and it makes you feel beautiful and happy, then it will make you feel that way when the big day arrives!

Top 3 Places to Start Wedding Planning

Wedding Dress

Whether you’ve been curating your “Some Day <3” board since you were a teenager, or you’ve never thought about your big day, Pinterest is the best place to collect inspiration, ideas, and tips for all your wedding planning! Start a completely new board on your account for each of the different aspects of your day: bridal gown, bridesmaid dresses, flowers, cake, and even tips and tricks! Most of your vendors will ask for inspiration photos and styles you like. This will give them a clear vision and help you to see what is popular and what you might want to do differently on your big day!

The Knot, Wedding Wire & Zola

You’ve got your ideas, now it’s time to start booking vendors. Creating an account on the Knot, Wedding Wire or Zola will essentially give you a free wedding planner! Find vendors in your area for every aspect of your wedding, read real reviews, and even create your own wedding website so your guests can stay in the know. You can even curate your wedding registry right in your account that will collect your items from any store you choose!

TikTok for Wedding Planning

It’s no secret that TikTok has taken social media by storm. Hashtags like #weddingtok are one of our favorite sides to be on! Weddingtok will give you a mix of brides, both current and former, and wedding professionals to help you find inspiration, get essential tips and tricks, and learn about some traditions you never knew existed. You can even find ideas for all of the getting ready transitions to make with your bridesmaids the morning of!

Happy planning and Congrats!
