Notes from Bridal Styles Brides {Alexandra}

Thursday, August 15th, 2013

Something old, something new…Bridal Styles bride Alexandra had the best of both worlds! We reworked her mother’s beautiful lace veil, helped her choose a crystal-encrusted headband, and created a modern French Net blusher for her to slip into at the reception.

From Alexandra:

“I absolutely adored my beautiful headpieces from Bridal Styles Boutique. I received so many compliments on both my headpiece with my modified veil. Everyone loved the other Birdcage veil I used for the wedding reception. Thank you for making it possible for me to use my mother’s veil at my wedding. It was my ‘Something Borrowed’. It was definitely one of the most special and meaningful pieces that I wore on our special day. Bridal Styles Boutique made it possible!”

We’re honored to have been a part of your day, Alexandra. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous pictures, and best wishes to you both!

Bridal style for a destination wedding can be anything you’d like it to be! For Vanessa’s celebration at the Hard Rock Hotel in Punta Cana, she went totally glam, complementing her spectacular gown with a Swarovski crystal hair comb and French net cage veil.

“Thank You, Bridal Styles Boutique, for my beautiful headpiece and veil! You were so accommodating considering I waited till last minute! I couldn’t have been happier with how helpful your staff was!”

It was our pleasure, Vanessa! Thank you so much for sending your wonderful wedding day pictures. We’re so glad you were thrilled with your headpiece and veil – you look fabulous! Best wishes!

Notes from Bridal Styles Brides {Cherie}

Friday, April 12th, 2013

Some Bridal Styles brides travel to sunny shores for their wedding day!

Cheri said ‘I do’ at the Hard Rock Hotel in Punta Cana and paired her gorgeous Pnina Tornai gown with a custom headpiece, French net veil, earrings, necklace and bracelet from Bridal Styles!

From Cherie:

“I can’t begin to thank you for all of the jewelry for my wedding. From the headpiece to the earrings, necklace and gorgeous bracelet. I felt like a million dollars when I put them on. I received so many compliments on them. They were all truly STUNNING. Thank you for time, patience and attentiveness. I showed Pnina a picture from the wedding and she even commented on the jewelry. You made me feel like a princess. I will not let my friends buy any jewelry before coming to you first! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU – so much!”

Best wishes, Cherie! We’re thrilled to hear how much you loved your accessories and experience at Bridal Styles. Stunning does not even begin to describe your pictures! Thanks so much for sharing your day with us.

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.

BIRDCAGE/FRENCH NET BLUSHER: Partially or completely covering the face, this short veil is often made with French net.

BSB bride Tina french net blusher

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

FLY AWAY VEIL:  Short layered veil usually reaching the shoulders or mid-back

FOUNTAIN VEIL: A veil gathered at the crown of the head and cascading over the shoulders to form a “fountain”.

FINGERTIP VEIL: A single or multiple-layer veil reaching to the tips of the fingers.

WALTZ-LENGTH VEIL:Typically a single tier veil reaching anywhere between your knees and your ankles.

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.
