Notes from Bridal Styles Brides {Lauren}

Wednesday, January 6th, 2016

From Lauren:

“The experience that I had at your boutique was one of a kind. My headpiece was stunning and I received so many heartfelt compliments through the night. I don’t think any bride truly has a “true” bridal experience unless they get their headpiece and veil from you guys.”

Wow! Thank you for your kind words and huge compliment, Lauren. It is our hope that any bride who visits us has a wonderful experience. We’re delighted you loved visiting us and are so thrilled with your custom CZ headpiece and veil. You looked absolutely stunning! Best wishes to you both.

Eight Times Cathedral Veils Made Us Swoon

Friday, March 6th, 2015

When it comes to adding drama to your wedding day look, cathedral veils are second to none. Watching a bride float down the aisle trailing a gauzy length of gorgeous or striking a pose framed by tulle always gives us goose bumps! Utterly romantic and undeniably elegant, this is one accessory that a bride-to-be intent on making an entrance (and exit) should try.

Whether crystal scattered, lace bordered, embroidered or cut-edge, we love them all…and, as you can see below, so do our brides!

Monifa and Jean’s Parisian Themed Wedding

Thursday, February 5th, 2015

A mutual friend first introduced Jean and Monifa, but a chance rainy day meeting under a tent at Miami’s Jazz in the Gardens brought them together. They spent the whole evening in conversation, and Jean was smitten. He knew Monifa had just started anesthesia school and thus was reluctant to start a relationship, but Jean had a plan.

As the creative force behind The Design Group Miami, the city’s premier event planning and production firm, he knew a statement would be just the thing to sway Monifa’s resolve. And he was right! After sending the most opulent floral arrangement he’d ever designed to her hospital, Monifa could no longer resist and the two soon became inseparable.

It was on a trip to New York four years later while they both were enjoying a Central Park carriage ride that Jean proposed, and to his delight Monifa said yes!

Jean’s profession meant he had a big hand in the planning, and, working together, they set an April date for their fabulous Parisian-themed wedding. Held at the Miami Seaquarium’s Sunset Cove in Key Biscayne, Florida, their celebration captured the opulence, romance and imagination of Paris.

When she visited us at Bridal Styles Boutique, we knew she would be a stunning bride and that her custom designed 10-karat gold-plated Swarovski crystal encrusted headpiece, veil, earrings and bracelet were fabulous…but on her wedding day Monifa was a queen!

Gabrielle and Sergey’s Regal, Fairy Tale Wedding

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014

When it came to meeting the love of her life, beautiful Bridal Styles bride Gabrielle employed a strategy any woman with a black belt in shopping could appreciate. She knew exactly who she wanted, and didn’t hesitate to make her move!

From Gabrielle:

“Serge and I met through a social gathering in which I “picked” him out of a group and said “I want that one!” to his friend. It was love at first sight and we haven’t been apart ever since that day!”

Right away, Gabrielle knew that following her heart had led to making the perfect choice:

“We met when I was particularly going through a difficult situation at home; my grandfather was passing away. Serge was there by my side through it all. Helping my family a week after meeting me, never leaving my side. It was then I knew he would be by my side forever.”

Serge felt the same way, and he soon asked Gabrielle for her hand in a very sweet way:

“Serge is very to himself and private. He likes to be alone, just the two of us, and that’s what he had in mind when he proposed on December 21, 2012 in Borgata at Bobby Flay’s steakhouse. It was very romantic!”

Gabrielle wanted time to plan the perfect wedding, and so the two set a date a year and a half away: April 6, 2014. Almost right away, our lovely bride and her mom got to work. They started by asking friends and family who’d already planned weddings for advice, but there was one aspect of the day for which Gabrielle didn’t need any suggestions…the venue! From Gabrielle:

“Ever since I was a little girl, my daddy told me I was his princess. So, of course I married in a castle! Oheka Castle was the only venue I looked at and we booked the hall then and there! We were worried about having an outdoor ceremony due to it being the beginning of April, especially since a week before there was rain and snow. Then our day came and it was the most gorgeous outdoor ceremony that I could have ever imagined with the sun shining right at my Chuppah!”

Gabrielle44

With her castle secured, Gabrielle went in search of her gown and glass slippers.

“I knew I wanted to look like a princess – hence the horse and carriage!

The dress was something I envisioned ever since I was a little girl… A beautiful ball gown. I initially thought it would have to be custom made, but when I went to Kleinfelds and tried it on (it was the only dress I tried on!!!!), my mother and I looked at each other and knew it was the one …. And then we started hysterically crying!!!! It was the most amazing Pnina Tornai I had ever seen!

And equally, my shoes had to be Cinderella shoes! I knew I wanted Christian Louboutins but not such a high heel. The crystal Louboutins were all on a very high heel so I ordered a pair of plain black ones with the smallest heel possible from Boston (they didn’t have this style in NY) and had Crystal Rieger – owner of Red Soles Reborn – custom make my gorgeous blinged out Loubs!

All my jewelry (except my gorgeous bracelet by Bridal Styles Boutique) was my mother’s present to me on my wedding day.”

No princess is complete without her crown, crystal encrusted veils and white glove service. For that, Gabrielle knew there was only one place to go.

“There was NOOOOOO other place besides Bridal Styles that I would even think about going to get a customized creation such like my REGAL crown. As soon as I walked into the store I was floored with the beauty and exquisiteness they had to offer. But I knew that they would create something spectacular for me that was never done before. Such meticulous detail and perfection was hard to imagine until my headpiece was actually DONE and boy was it unimaginable indeed. I was in utter disbelief upon revelation!!!! I stood there with my jaw to the floor in shock. It was perfect. Everything about it was perfect. There were no words to describe the beauty. And then came my custom bracelet, crystallized fingertip and cathedral veils! I was all blinged out! WOW! It was like a dream. It was perfect. I can never be more grateful for the amazing experience I had throughout this whole process.”

When April 6 arrived, Gabrielle was a bit anxious, but like all fairy tales, her day had a perfect ending. From Gabrielle:

“I was a nervous wreck leading up to the day. But the morning of, at 6 am when the most amazing person Jackie (my wedding coordinator) greeted me with the biggest smile met me downstairs at the entrance to the castle and gave me a hug and a kiss telling me that today is going to be perfect, and it was!!!!!

I always envisioned getting ready with my friends and family and that meant a lot to me, but the most memorable part to me was right before I walked down the aisle. I went from a totally different entrance to get on the horse and carriage and was completely by myself for about 5 minutes. Hearing the classical music as my family and friends walked down the aisle…it was surreal. And I was just sitting there thinking, WOW. This is everything that I could have ever imagined and so much more. When I arrived, I saw my parents and the tears of joy just started pouring down. It was PERFECT.”

Now blissful newlyweds, Sergey and Gabrielle are passing this advice on to other couples planning their weddings:

“I would say that enjoy every single minute and don’t worry about everyone else. It’s your day and you will remember it for the rest of your life! My husband would say as he says to me: ‘Let your fiancé do whatever she wants, your job is to just be there!’. “

Anna and Anthony’s Modern, Glamorous Wedding

Monday, April 21st, 2014

Though they’d known each other for years, Anna and Anthony have Anna’s grandmother to thank for bringing them together!

From Anna:

“Anthony’s sister Caterina and my cousin Pasquale have been dating several years before me and Anthony started dating. I had always seen him and thought he was absolutely adorable. When my grandmother passed away in 2006, Anthony was by my and my family’s side the entire time. I kept seeing him constantly and one day he asked me to go out for a drink. To this day I say my grandmother was the one who put us two together.”

Right away, Anna knew that Anthony was someone special.

“Our first date I said to myself ‘I’m going to marry this guy – he had something different about him- I couldn’t imagine myself with anyone else.’”

Anna wasn’t the only one who knew they’d found The One. After some time, with the help of their families, Anthony proposed to Anna in the sweetest of ways:

“His parents invited my parents, sister and grandparents for Easter Dinner. This was no surprise since both our families were so close, and spent several holidays together. Once we arrived, we started setting up the dinner table and helping out.

Anthony’s nephew, who was 5 months old at the time, was ready for a diaper change. So, I was summoned to do so… Again no surprise, since I always grabbed any chance I could to hold him. Once I was undressing the baby, Anthony came over and I noticed people with cameras and taking iPad videos, but thought nothing of it – perhaps they were just videotaping baby Rosario since he was the first Baby Boy of the family.

Once I removed his 1 piece jumper, I noticed blue Swarovski crystals on his onesie. Quickly I thought to myself ‘why the heck is this baby wearing crystals on his onesie?! ‘ My heart dropped just as I realized baby Rosario’s onesie read, “Will You Marry My Uncle?” I quickly turned to Anthony as he was on one knee holding this gorgeous diamond ring and he asked me to be his wife.“

The two lovebirds soon set the date of September 21, and, with the help of Anna’s mom, Patty, along with her sister Enza, began to plan.

From Anna:

“Planning was so much fun!!!! I wanted everything white and glamorous with a little bit of sparkle… planning was a second job! I would be out from 9am till 6pm just meeting with different vendors. Was so worth the outcome! “

After choosing St. Teresa in Staten Island for the ceremony and The Venetian for their ceremony, Anna got to work on the special elements that would make the day their own.

Anna wanted many unique touches at the wedding and set out to find to right vendors to fulfill her vision.

“I somehow came across Angela’s Fantasy Creation on Instagram. She is based out of LA and custom designs anything you want. Money boxes, flower girl baskets, ring boxes, bouquets, memory bottles, frames, jewelry boxes just to name a few! She custom designs all this, of course, with Swarovski crystals. I had Angela create a giant money box for my wedding. I wanted different and she worked with me on everything! I am currently using the money box to display my wedding shoes in my closet. The flower girl basket was gorgeous! One of a kind! I didn’t want a regular pillow for my pillow boy, so Angela created a ring box. A two-tiered box with an opening to place the rings.

Having custom pieces at my wedding made it my own, and my wedding cake was one of my favorites! I worked with Gennaro at Palermo’s Bakery in NJ and we both came up with the design for a classy, Swarovski, all-white five-tiered wedding cake. I purchased crystal cake appliqués and Gennaro worked with them to create exactly what I wanted!”

As the wedding details began to take shape, Anna turned her attention to choosing the dress…and headed straight for Kleinfeld. From Anna:

“I’d always wanted (and envisioned myself in) that sexy mermaid tight wedding dress….until I went to Kleinfelds and fell in love with Pnina Tornai ball gowns. I wanted big , bling, and beautiful! My mother hated the dress when I told the consultant I wanted to try it, but once I stepped out of the dressing room my mom fell in love! My mom’s opinion had a lot to do with my wedding, there’s always that fear of not listening to mom and regretting it and having her say, ‘I told you so,’ but my gown was fun, different and full of Swarovski crystals.“

Next stop on Anna’s list? Bridal Styles Boutique!

“Once I said yes to the dress, they put on a veil and different headpieces and I immediately declined. I’ve lived in Brooklyn my whole life and always wanted to get my headpiece and veil at Bridal Styles.

When we arrived for our appointment, my mom and I were treated like royalty, and, after I showed the picture of my dress, they knew exactly what will go. I wanted a showstopper and that’s when the staff at Bridal Styles went in the back to the exclusive selection and pulled out the perfect headpiece! I went with a big, blingy and beautiful headpiece, and not only did I purchase my headpiece but also a custom-made cathedral veil with Swarovski crystal along the whole train all scattered up the veil. On my wedding day, all of my guests could not keep their eyes off of my headpiece! I also got my flower girl this adorable feathered and rhinestone piece, my mom and sister a Swarovski-encrusted piece and, of course, my diamond studded earrings that complemented the headpiece and veil and dress.

Next, I purchased open-toed Jimmy Choo pumps and had Swarovski crystals added to them – a little more bling, of course! My wedding look was exactly what I envisioned – from my hair, makeup and accessories, to the dress, shoes and flowers.“

Finally, the day arrived, and though the morning started nerve-free, as the moment when she’d (finally) marry Anthony drew near, Anna began to get butterflies! From that moment on, the day passed in a wonderful, unforgettable blur.

“Since I work at Mancini Giuffre Salon in Staten Island, I had the pleasure of having both Stephanie Russo and Melissa Scotti come to my home the morning of my wedding. The morning went by so smoothly. I wasn’t nervous until I started getting text messages from friends and family wishing me a lifetime of happiness- that’s when it became real!

There were a few raindrops early morning but when it was time, the sun was beaming and the clouds opened up – it was the perfect wedding day, and my bridesmaids looked phenomenal in their Tony Bowls royal blue gowns.

When it was time to meet Anthony at St. Teresa, I was getting nervous and excited. Once I arrived, all I could see was Anthony waiting for me with a smile, and definitely a nervous one! Afterwards, we headed to Lambert Castle to take pictures, after which was our party of 300+ guests at The Venetian and an abundance of food, dancing and love. From there on it was just magical. “

One of Anna’s favorite moments?

“Was definitely dancing with my daddy. All eyes on me and my father. Took me back to when we danced at my communion, my Sweet 16, and now my wedding. Our bond is one unlike any I have with anyone else – a truly amazing man!”

As for Anthony, he’ll never forget their first dance to “At Last” by Etta James.

Now blissful newlyweds, Anna and Anthony have this advice for couples planning their own weddings:

“Do whatever makes you happy. In the end, it’s your wedding and everyone understands that. Also, whatever goes wrong that day, brush it off. No one will notice except you.”
