Tuesday, July 2nd, 2013

Our semi-annual bridal accessory sample sales have become can’t-miss events! We could tell you all about how we make huge reductions (up to 75% off) on our enormous selection of couture headpieces, veils, jewelry and bridal accessories to make room for new samples. But we’ll let our Bridal Styles brides tell you instead:

To give you an edge in finding the perfect bridal accessory at a steal during our sample sales, we’ve come up with a Bridal Styles Boutique Sample Sale Cheat Sheet:

● Sample sales are by appointment only.

● Make your appointment as early as possible. Our sample sale gets booked very quickly!

● Arrive a little earlier than your scheduled time. That way you can start looking through the selection.

● Please limit the amount of people you bring with you. Things get very busy during our sales, and we want everyone to be comfortable and to have a good time.

● Bring along anything you feel would help us help you find the accessories of your dreams, whether that’s a picture of your hairstyle or your bridal gown.

● Remember, all sales are final!

Bridal Veil Style Guide

Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

From modern to traditional to vintage chic, bridal veils come in more flavors than Baskin-Robbins ice cream! So, to help all our brides and (brides-to-be) with veil terminology, we’ve created the bridal veil glossary below.

Very often these styles are combined. So, a bride wearing a pouf can also wear a birdcage blusher, or you may choose a short tiered veil to wear over a cathedral veil for a more dramatic walk down the aisle. However, to keep things simple, we’ve included our most commonly requested veils, all modeled by our wonderful Bridal Styles brides.

There are many more veil styles than those listed below, so if you don’t see what you envision, just ask us! We custom-make every bridal veil here in our boutique, so we can create or alter anything to help you create your one-of-a-kind wedding day look!

POUF: Layers of folded tulle worn at the back of the head to create a more modern and fun effect.

BLUSHER: A single layer of tulle covering the face, it’s typically only worn walking down the aisle.

CHAPEL-LENGTH VEIL: Usually 2 to 2-1/2 yards long, this veil extends a little past the gown and is considered more formal.

CATHEDRAL VEIL:Usually three yards or longer, this is the longest and most formal of all veils. Perfect for a bride aiming to make a dramatic entrance.
