Beautiful Bridal Hairstyles for Your Big Day!


Bridal Hair Trends

Finding the right hairstyle for your big day is an important part of the planning process.  With so many different styles, it can be hard to decide on a style that will work best for you and the achieve look you want. We have put together a list of the hottest trends in bridal hair to help you find your perfect style!

Loose Romantic Up-Dos

Gone are the days of tight, slicked back, constructed up-dos.  Brides are opting to go for a more natural, romantic look with loose curls and a lot of texture. Want to really make it romantic?  Add a floral crown or a bohemian-inspired head band!

Braids and Twists

The past few seasons have been all about adding texture with braids and twists.  This trend can be worn many different ways and allows the bride to really get creative.  To make this style even more elegant, add a sparkly brooch or embellished hair comb.

Vintage-Inspired Dos

Fingerwaves, pincurls and victory rolls are making a comeback!  These looks are perfect for brides that have that pin-up girl style or even a vintage or retro venue.  Add a vintage looking hair pin to complete this gorgeous look.

Wedding Dress Trends This Season

Top Wedding Dress Trends

Every bride wants to look and feel beautiful on her wedding day and the hunt for the perfect dress is not an easy task!  We have gathered the latest and greatest bridal trends of this season to help our stylish brides find their perfect dress.  Any of these trends are sure to make a statement and will have guests oohing and ahhing!

Fresh Colors and Floral Patterns

Colored wedding dresses made their debut last season and it looks like they are here to stay!  Soft hues and pastel splashes of color are perfect for brides wanting a more unique, less traditional look.  Some of the top colors that have been gracing the runways this season are dusty blues, blush pink, soft lavender, muted mint, light gold and champagne.  Bold floral prints are also hot right now.  We are seeing the floral pattern in many different ways, as a lace overlay or underlay, embroidered onto bodices, colorful prints on skirts and in subtle appliques.  Take a look at these gorgeous blush pink wedding dresses with ruffled skirt layers and a stunning multi-dimensional ivory lace overlay.  They embody both trends and are sure to be head-turners!

Draped Shoulder Beading

Wedding dresses with sleeves have been popular the last few seasons and now the designers are adding a fresh twist with beading and embellishments draping over the shoulder and heavily beaded straps.  These styles will be sure to draw attention and wow your guests!

Chic Two Pieces and Two-for-One Styles

Many brides love the versatility and uniqueness of a two piece gown.  Who wouldn’t want to have a more traditional dress for the ceremony and a party dress for the reception?!  With the two piece look, it is easy to swap out the skirt after the ceremony for a second look to keep guests on their feet. One of our newest arrivals below features a stunning café colored-beaded corset with an interchangeable ruffled skirt.  This dress is definitely a show stopper and is perfect for the fashion-forward bride.

Off the Shoulder and Boat Necks

Bold necklines are taking the lead over the classic sweetheart neckline. Boat neck and off-the-shoulder silhouettes compliment the shoulders and add a subtle sexiness to the bride, while still being conservative.  This look is great for a bride that wants to stand out without being over the top.

Any of these trends will be sure to impress your guests and have them talking about your dress long after the wedding.  Make your appointment today or stop in to try on these beautiful, on-trend gowns!
