This is what sets us apart

We ask the right questions to get the right information, it’s all about YOU!

It can be as simple as asking our clients “What look are you going for that day?” or “Do you have any allergies?” Other times your beauty team may need to do a bit more digging to find out what direction you want go in for your wedding hair and makeup. “Do you normally wear your hair up and pulled back?” “What celebrity do you think you look most like?”
By having open and honest conversations with our clients, where there are no wrong answers, it helps us find the right look for everyone who sits in our chair to feel their most confident and beautiful on such a special day.

We anticipate and accommodate, we expect the UNEXPECTED!

Weddings are wonderful, but boy-oh-boy can they be hectic. Sometimes your grandmother needs help deciding on a hair style that makes her feel elegant AND fun. Maybe your niece who’s set to be your flower girl, is having a total melt down because you nixed the unicorn pigtails (trust us- it’s happened). These are the things that our team deals with every day and the things that we thrive on!! We are looking forward to being part of such special moments.

Falling In Love- Trends You’ll See Everywhere This Season

Falling In Love

Many people get bummed to see summer come to a close. With the end of swimsuit season, no more fruity drinks with umbrellas and the days beginning to get shorter- it’s easy to see why folks could get the blues.
 

But then there are those people who absolutely LOVE the autumn!! Those that start at NYE to count down the days to Halloween and Thanksgiving. Those that want ALL the pumpkin spice things. Those who were meant to live in boots, jeans and flannels. For those people, this is a time to rejoice!!! This week we’ve put together a list of our favorite fall wedding trends- hope you love them as much as we do!! 

 

METALLICS

Rose golds, platinums, bronze and silvers have been hot on the scene for about a year on every thing from phone cases to popular eyeshadow pallets, serving trays and home decor. 

 

And as so many trends before, as goes fashion industry, so goes the wedding industry shortly after. This fall expect to see these luxurious and lavish tones EVERY WHERE- bridesmaids dresses, cakes, table scape, stationary and seating charts and just about any where else brides and grooms can cover in these glitzy hues.
 
 

 GAMES

 Since the temperatures are far more tolerable than they were just a few weeks ago, plan on spending a bit of the cocktail hours playing laid back games with family friends and the bridal party. 
 
A little bit of play time with Jenga, Bocce, or Corn Hole is a total blast for guests to play at the beginning of a reception but they are also a smart move to keep your loved ones occupied while bride, groom and wedding party are taking the formal photos after the ceremony. 
Games are also a great gift idea for couples starting their new life together (many of whom are also moving in together or getting a new place to live) and one of my favorite features is that its a great opportunity for more personalizations and monograms!!!! Which weddings can always use more of!!
 

FURRY FRIENDS

Im not exactly sure why the trend of absolutely adorable animals at a wedding seems to have really picked up right as fall kicked off- maybe its the drop in the temperature, maybe there is a petting zoo connection…..who knows, but I am loving it!!!

There is a whole mini- industry popping up where you can rent these lovely llama guests for your wedding or any other special occasion!!

From bunny, llama, fancy chickens, goats, mini- pigs….expect to see the whole farm at weddings this season. Here are some more really adorable animal inspired weddings

BIG PAPER FLORALS

Whether using these giant hand crafted blooms as bouquets or as background decor, paper flowers area  great choice because they are just so incredibly versatile. You have so many more options and avenues to be unique and expressive when you are creating something on your own.

If you elect to make them your self, they could be quite a bit more time intensive than simply ordering fresh cuts, but there is no denying that paper and fabric are quite a bit less expensive than the real things.  See some of the best tutorials we found on the web here, for making them your self. 

 There are so many beautiful and creative ways to express your self at your wedding during the fall. If you think we missed your favorite- leave us a line in the comments!!

And as always, CONGRATULATIONS to all our stunning brides getting married this fall!!

It’s Bridal Show Season!!!

August 9, 2017

Well that special time of year has come……

IT’S BRIDAL SHOW SEASON!! 

The biggest and most well known event in our area for more than two decades is Bridal Spectacular, and we are so excited to be there again at

Booth #109 this August 18th and 19th.

Bridal conventions and show are a great opportunity to get some serious day dreaming and planning done in a short amount of time, but with all those vendors and attendants the job can be a bit over whelming.

So we’ve put together some tips on how to get the most out of your time there.

HAVE A PLAN

When you first walk on to the bridal show floor it can be a little bit overwhelming. The space is gigantic, the crowds can be crazy and there are literally hundreds of different vendors there that provide dozens of different wedding services- from caterers to makeup artist……they are all going to be there.  

Have an idea of your the colors you are loving at the moment. Are you wanting to be a spring bride and planning for possible showers or envisioning your first kiss under the trees as the fall colors change to deep reds and yellow? 

What about your budget? Is this something that you and your partner are going to foot the bill for? How many guests are you thinking? A small ceremony with a few dozen guests enjoying an intimate dinner? Or a rocking party with hundreds taking over the dance floor.

It will help you tremendously to keep some of these things in mind. 

ENLIST YOUR A TEAM

Unless you’re planning private and romantic elopement  (which so many of our clients do as well) you’re almost guaranteed to have a “team” or “squad” of people in your life that want to be part of your day and will do just about anything to see you and your future spouse happy at your wedding.  

Whether it’s your mom, aunt, cousins, soon-to-be-mother/sister-in-law, best girlfriend or……heck……even your brother or dad!!!!! Make these folks feel special and ask for their help and support. Walking up and down the seemingly endless aisles can be intimidating and daunting to say the least- having people by your side, who love you and have been filled in on your vision for the wedding will help keep you focused and eliminate a lot of the of the extra noise. 

ASK THE RIGHT QUESTIONS 

In the days leading up to the bridal show, before you even step foot in the convention center, think of what you are going there for. Great questions to ask your self are “What have I already got planned/booked/paid a deposit on?” , “What am I still missing?” , “What is my over all budget?” and “What are my “splurge” items/services?

By asking your self these questions (and really thinking about the answers) you can save a HUGE amount of time and focus your efforts at the bridal show.  If you’ve already booked your dream photog, then you can easily eliminate a few booths. If you are ordering a delicious custom cake to be delivered from your favorite bakery in your home town, then make sure to keep that in mind.

MAKE REAL CONNECTIONS

As has been mentioned, there are A LOT of vendors to see and people to meet at these mega shows, there is absolutely no possible way you are going to get to know and connect with all of them. 

Just like a networking event it’s easy to make your rounds at a bridal show, shake plenty of hands, collect lots of business cards and then get home to start looking over your look and realize you don’t even remember any of those names or what it is that they do.Makeup In The 702 Lipstick Bar-Casey Jade Photography

Once you’ve asked your self about your budget, time line, colors, theme- make the most of your time by focusing on the vendors that meet your remaining needs but are also people you genuinely like!!! As there are dozens of different services offered to brides there are also dozens of different personalities, its important to work with vendors that you vibe with. Those that see the vision for your special day. 

ASK THE RIGHT QUESTIONS 

In the days leading up to the bridal show, before you even step foot in the convention center, think of what you are going there for. Great questions to ask are “What have I already planned/booked/paid a deposit on?” , “What am I still missing?” , “What is my over all budget?” and “What are my “splurge” items/services?

ENJOY YOUR SELF!!!

There are countless resources- be they magazines, blogs, forums or bridal shows- go mine through while you are planning your wedding. It is important to remember what the whole celebration is about. While planning a fabulous party is always at the front of mind the most vital part of this experience is remembering that two people who love each other endlessly are coming together to celebrate that devotion. 

Don’t rush it. Don’t stress it. Take a breath and take it all in. These moments will absolutely fly by, so be sure to slow down and absorb the moment that you are currently in.
