Crystal Bridal Headpiece and Jewelry Photo Shoot!

Tuesday, March 12th, 2013

It is always exciting to collaborate with talented new people, and working with photographer Nay Marie and her professional team for a photo shoot was definitely a pleasure! As we selected striking accessories from our collection to showcase, Magali worked on the beautiful model’s makeup and Egypt discussed the hair styling for each look.

With our extensive collection, it was tough to choose which piece to showcase. Gorgeous, flexible hair vines along with striking face framers, vintage-inspired hair jewelry, dramatic pouf veils, and a French net blusher. And then there were the CZ earrings and bracelets to choose. With hair and makeup done and pieces selected, our model was quickly transformed into picture perfect.

When we saw the images, all we could say was, “Wow!” We couldn’t wait to share them! Nay and her team did a fantastic job capturing our beautiful bridal hair accessories, veils and jewelry, don’t you think?

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.

Using silhouette and detail to express their style, our traditional girls walk down the aisle wearing veils cascading with romantic lace, elegant crystals, and delicate embroidery.
