2014 Winter Sample Sale Recap

Monday, December 29th, 2014

The Winter 2014 Sample Sale will go down in Bridal Styles Boutique history!

With many of you driving and flying in from out of state in addition to our local ladies, there was no way we could limit the sale from November 20 – 21 as planned. So, in order to accommodate each and every bride-to-be excited to shop the hundreds of gorgeous headpieces, jewelry and veils we had on sale, we extended things right through Sunday!

As always, it was wonderful to help so many women find the perfect finishing touch to their wedding day look and to see so many friends and family come along to help! But what was really neat this year was that many of our past brides came to select crystal hair combs and Swarovski hair chains to wear for upcoming fetes. We can’t wait to see pictures of you girls out on the town wearing your fabulous finds!

If you missed the sample sale, don’t fret! Our next event is this summer. Stay tuned for details by following us on Facebook or Instagram.

Summer 2014 Sample Sale Recap

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

Our semi-annual sample sales have always felt a little like really fun bridal showers.

Excitement and anticipation fill the air, everyone’s smiling and delighted by everything they see. Women walk around in their street clothes with crystal-encrusted headpieces and veils in their hair. Friends and family fluff and tease their brides-to-be. Beautifully wrapped packages march out the door.

Summer 2014 Sample Sale

However, as the first sample sale in our newly renovated and expanded boutique, this summer’s event was even more fun than usual. All our stylists spent the weekend bubbling like freshly opened champagne! It warmed our hearts to see the shop filled with familiar faces returning to help sisters, sisters-in-law, cousins and friends find just the right piece. And it was such fun to see a sweet little future Bridal Styles bride help a bride with her accessory selection.

Many happy brides on a budget found the perfect couture pieces, and there were lots of grateful hugs all around. Which made The Bridal Styles Boutique summer sample sale of 2014 a huge success and a ton of fun.

We’re looking forward to our next big sample sale in December!

Celebrating 25 Years of Bridal Styles Brides

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

This year, we celebrate 25 years of helping brides sparkle, and, on such a big anniversary, we’ve cracked open our photo albums to take a walk down memory lane!

Paging through our thousands of pictures, we’re overwhelmed by how much time has passed – it seems like yesterday our first brides came to the store preparing for their weddings. Yet, many of these beautiful ladies have since returned with grown daughters for communions, Sweet Sixteens, and even weddings!

Celebrating 25 Years of Bridal Styles Brides

Though styles have changed over the years, it’s beautiful to see that, no matter how fashion evolves, the bride is always gorgeous and glowing with joy. Knowing that we had a small part in making her happy moves and amazes us.

Celebrating 25 Years of Bridal Styles Brides

Thank you to all our extraordinary brides for including us in your wedding day and welcoming us into your lives!

Love, everyone at Bridal Styles Boutique.

Contemporary Bride 2013 Photo Shoot {Behind the Scenes}

Thursday, December 13th, 2012

Recently, Bridal Styles Boutique participated in the covers and editorial shoot for the 2013 issues of Contemporary Bride Magazine! We always have a great time with the staff, and, even after years of working with the magazine on their gorgeous covers, it’s amazing to see how the very talented crew puts everything together.

The day always begins with a rush of dress bags, accessory boxes, flowers, models, photography equipment, hair and makeup, and then, poof! A wedding wonderland with glamorous brides and sweet flower girls is created.

This shoot featured breathtaking gowns (which, as you can see, are divine even waiting to be slipped on) from Kleinfeld Bridal and Exquisite Bride. And, of course, all the stunning bridal accessories were from our 2013 collection at Bridal Styles Boutique!

Though the end result is fabulous images (that now we can’t wait to see on the pages of Contemporary Bride Magazine), the whole process takes an entire day and a ton of effort. As Photography by Frank and David from The Studio Photographers swept in to set up their equipment, Mandy and Kristen from La Sorella Bridal did a fantastic job on all the models’ hair, while Tim Alan worked his makeup magic. Meanwhile, beautiful bouquets from Lotus Petals Floral Design, wedding gowns, and bridal accessories were unpacked and prepared for the spotlight.

To give you a taste of what the day was like, we took the camera for some behind-the-scenes shots as the day unfolded!

The Bridal Styles Summer 2012 Sample Sale was such a whirlwind!

Our first day, July 20, dawned grey and soggy, but that didn’t stop brides from coming in. They marched through the downpour, deposited their umbrellas at the door, and strolled into the Bridal Styles showroom. Luckily, the Bridal Styles team arrived bright and early at 9am to receive all the women who were ready to find their bridal headpieces, jewelry, veils and accessories!

All weekend, girls from as far as Maryland drove in for the event, bringing along sisters, friends, and bridesmaids. After awhile, there were so many brides that everyone started helping each other. Watching everyone enjoy themselves, along with catching up with the familiar faces of our past brides (there to help their siblings and friends), was such a delight!
