How Should I Wear My Hair? {Side Curl}

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

If you’re a romantic, glamorous bride, the side curl may be the perfect wedding ‘do for you!

Reminiscent of silver screen sirens Rita Hayworth and Veronica Lake, this hairdo’s soft, slightly retro come-hither style has a lot of sophistication. But don’t let the vintage vibe fool you! Our beautiful Bridal Styles brides have been spotted creating their own spin on this classic.

What we love most about the side curl is that it’s fabulous for showing off a gorgeous, crystal-encrusted hair comb or elegant hair flower. Without a doubt, a dynamite hair accessory placed off to the side makes the side curl a stunner!

Julie & John’s Elegant, Glamorous Wedding

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

Handsome and sweet, John caught Julie’s eye the very first time they met six years ago…except she was in another relationship. It wasn’t until three years later when they were reintroduced by friends that John seized his chance and asked Julie out.

Within a few dates, Julie realized that he was The One, so several months later when he proposed, she was totally overcome.

“After a full 7 course meal at our favorite restaurant, Seasonal in NYC, the waiter brought out a plate with ‘I Love You’ written on it in chocolate and the ring in the middle of the plate. John proceeded to proclaim his love to me and asked me to marry him, but at this point I was in a total daze. After asking me several times I finally came back to reality and said ‘YES!’”

With a year to plan their June 11, 2011 wedding at The Hanover Manor, Julie got right to work!

“The planning process was both stressful and fun at the same time. I wanted to make sure that not one single detail was over looked and spent a lot of time researching wedding ideas. The style of the wedding evolved around plum and silver colors with crystal accents everywhere.”

With most of the day’s details decided, Julie was ready for the best part – choosing her wedding day look.

“I wanted my look to be romantic and elegant with a touch of boldness and to exude my personality. I had envisioned my self in a dress with pick-ups and crystals that extenuated my petite body type and also flowed gracefully. I found my Pninia Tornai dress at Kleinfeld, the only boutique to carry her collection. I wanted my accessories to be exquisite, over the top and glamorous. I went with an antique style look that included chandelier earrings, a bangle bracelet and a stunning crystal headpiece, hand made at Bridal Styles Boutique. These pieces tied my look together perfectly and made me feel like a true bride on our wedding day.”

Before Julie and John knew it, they were wed at the Greek Orthodox Church in Clifton, NJ and on their way to Hanover Manor for an incredible celebration that totally exceeded all their expectations.

“Our wedding day was one of the best and most meaningful days of my life. To see my vision and hard work come to life was amazing. I was overcome with intense feelings of gratitude, love, and devotion.

The reception was full of energy and excitement. The abundance of food choices during cocktail hour enticed my guest’s palates leaving them excited for more. The unforgettable Viennese Hour was the perfect ending to the night. Everyone has been raving about our wedding ever since.”
