Modern Trousseau

February 29, 2012. Category: dress, jewelry

Brides love to show off their newly engaged or married status, and we don’t blame them! Kate Spade has a great line called “Wedding Belles” that features all sorts of fun stuff from jewelry to rehearsal dinner dresses and more.

If you want to show off to the world the fact that you are now someone’s Mrs. They have a cute gold necklace and earring set, or a passport holder and airline cosmetic bag for your honeymoon trip.

They also have bridesmaid bangles – the perfect gift!

 

An added perk: they’re affordable. Fall in love, again.

February 28, 2012. Category: hair
Today we had the privilege of an in-office hair and makeup lesson with Remona Soleimani and Nour Kazoun! We learned so much from the ladies and even got our hair and makeup done! It is important to be prepared for your bridal day hair and makeup session so they gave us the tips below

Remona suggests washing and blow drying your hair after the rehearsal dinner the night before rather than the morning of. However, if you have greasy hair you may want to wash, blow dry, and apply some mousse to your hair the morning of. Just remember not to straighten or style! 
Also wash and moisturize your face that morning with the products you usually use to avoid having a reaction on the big day. Your bridal makeup will typically last six to eight hours, but your blush will start disappearing so it is important to keep a rosy and a coral blush on hand. You’ll also want hairspray and lip color, which most hair and makeup artists will give you as part of a touch-up kit. It is important to use the same lip color all day and night rather than using something that just looks close. 
 Even brides that aren’t usually over-emotional can’t help crying as they hear their groom declare his love at the altar or dance with their father at the reception. The key is not to swipe away your tears! Instead, blot your eyes with one finger inside a tissue or hold the tissue in your tear duct to soak up the moisture. If tears are running down your face, blot with your finger and the makeup will naturally blend back in. If you’re really sobbing and your make up gets messed up there is a solution! 
Nour loves Neutrogena makeup wipes, especially the purple night calming ones. Take one and dab to fix your makeup, or wipe to clean your makeup off. Blot films are another great item to keep around, especially for a summer wedding. They remove the oil without removing your makeup and will prevent you from looking shiny in photos. If you don’t have an oily complexion, blot powder (medium shade is good for most skin tones) applied between your photos and ceremony or your ceremony and reception might give your skin a perk, but use a sponge.
 If you’re wondering what you can do before your wedding to look better on your special day, Nour stresses getting facials. Ideally brides should start getting facials every three weeks beginning six months before their wedding.

Okay that was a ton of info.  If you want the one on one treatment be sure to connect with Remona and Nour yourself!

Maid to Order

February 13, 2012. Category: bridesmaid dresses
Are you looking for an easier way to shop for bridesmaid dresses? There is a hot new website called Weddington Way, where you can shop by style, price, theme, length, designer, neckline, and/or fabrics. 
When you find something you like, you can save it to your favorites and then send it to your bridesmaids. By sending your bridesmaids invitations not only can they view your favorite dresses, but they can also rank them, comment on what they like and don’t like about them, and order on the spot based on detailed measurements (they carry up to size 28). You can even order swatches for $5 each.

The only hitch,  take ten to fourteen weeks to arrive, so be sure to order them well in advance!
