4 Splurges That Will Make You Feel Wonderful on the Big Day

Monday, November 26th, 2018

If you are like every bride out there (at least in some respects), you want to make sure you feel splendid on your wedding day. Sure, the dress will make up for a large part of that, and the accessories will surely add to the feeling.

Before all that though, there are small things you will want to do for yourself and for your body – splurges that will prep your entire being for what’s meant to be one of the most fabulous days of your life.

• Professional manicure. This is more than a splurge – it’s a must, especially given that everyone will want to see that stunning ring on your finger. Get a fancy manicure done as soon as you get engaged and it will already put you into a fantastic mood – it’s one of the all-time favorites when it comes to pampering!
• Microblading. Eyebrows are more than important for your look – and if you want the perfect pair on your wedding day, you should definitely consider investing in microblading. If you decide to go for it, keep in mind that you should undergo the process way before your wedding – the healing takes some time, but the great news is that your eyebrows will continue to look flawless for the next 1-3 years.
• Hair treatment. While your regular hair routine might have been working really well until now, getting a professional, in-depth hair treatment might be the best idea before your wedding. From highlights to a complete change in color and various heat processes for the ideal hairdo, your hair will go through a lot to look perfect on the Big Day. Prep it for what’s to come with a truly effective salon treatment!
• Microdermabrasion. If you want your skin to look flawlessly glowing on your wedding day, you should also consider a microdermabrasion treatment. A regular at-home exfoliating routine could work very well, but since this is an important event, you might want to go beyond that – and microdermabrasion is the best there is!

Wedding trends aren’t “there” to be blindly followed. They exist to provide brides with the inspiration they need to create a unique wedding – an event infused with their personality, with their style, and with their love stories.
At the end of the day, you can choose to follow or not follow a wedding trend – but taking a look at it is worth it even if just for the sake of “finding new ideas”.

What are some of the more interesting wedding trends for 2019? We’ve gathered some emerging trends below – so read on and find out more.

• Less is more. This has always been true, but in 2019, it seems that the wedding fashion world is returning to its basics, to a simple world of embroidery-free wedding gowns that aren’t over the top in any way. They’re just pure elegance. Of course, detailed wedding dresses will still be majorly present – but aside from them, minimalist brides will find more and more options signed by the world’s most reputable designers.

• Pockets, pockets. Who doesn’t love a dress with pockets? So practical and chic, so unique and modern at the same time! In 2019, more wedding gowns will come with pockets – not necessarily for you to carry around the entirety of your bridal SOS kit, but just enough for you to carry your smartphone (and snap a couple of selfies with your besties).

• Bare makeup is back. With Meghan Markle featuring the most amazing barely-there makeup on her (royal) wedding day, it was a clear sign that bridal makeup is taking a turn for simplicity too. If you don’t want to go over the top with your makeup, 2019’s trends are your chance. Invest in quality skincare and keep your makeup to a minimum for a stunning, naturally beautiful bridal look. Everyone will love it!

• Red lips aren’t gone. Not at all! If you want a bit more glamour into your wedding makeup, red lipstick will be huge in 2019. The key lies in picking a shade that suits your particular complexion – something that will truly make you shine!

Looking for discounted wedding accessories? Adorn offers you the option to buy stunning pieces on reduced prices – or just to rent them for a very small fraction of their original price. Come visit our site and take a look around – we guarantee you will be charmed!

Winter Bride? Accessorize In Tune with the Season!

Wednesday, November 7th, 2018

There’s something utterly amazing about a winter wedding. It may be the warmth of the indoors, the comfort of the foods associated with winter events, the joy of Christmas and New Year’s floating in the air, or simply the magic of snow. It may be the wider availability of venues and vendors and the lower prices. Or it may just be the fact that your love story is connected to winter one way or another.

Whatever it is, if you have your heart set on a winter wedding, you deserve the very best, from A to Z – and your accessories should definitely be a priority.

How to accessorize as a winter bride? We have some tips and ideas for you – so read on and find out more.

  • Diamonds. Well, OK, diamonds are always in fashion – there’s just no way anyone can say that diamonds are “so last year”. There’s something about their sparkle and glamor that works especially well for winter brides, though – so if you want to look truly glamorous, a diamond statement piece will definitely be a great choice.
  • Pearls. Their color and their timelessness make them a true ally for all brides – but when it comes to winter weddings, pearls tend to be associated even more with snow, magic, and luxury. Thankfully, you can wear pearls in a myriad of ways – from stunning dripping earrings to sophisticated multi-layered bracelets.
  • Swarovski clutch purse. Although you will not wear a clutch purse down the aisle, having one in handy is the easiest way to make sure your absolute basics are there, with you (because, let’s face it: who doesn’t need a lipstick refresh)? This is a great opportunity to incorporate yet another fabulous winter-worthy and elegant piece into your wedding look – such as a clutch purse made with Swarovski crystals (for a dash of glamor) and tulle (for a feminine and bridal-worthy touch). Incorporate this into your wedding look and it will help you complement your attire in the most beautiful way there is!

Looking for budget-friendly wedding accessories? Have you ever considered renting some of the pieces that would otherwise be very expensive? If so, you MUST check out what Adorn has to offer – we promise you will be pleasantly surprised by the variety, quality, and prices of our products!

4 Things You Can Do With Your Wedding Attire After the Big Day

As a bride, you want to look nothing less than absolutely flawless on your wedding day. You want to shine, you want to be the most amazing woman in the room (and on a three-state radius), you want this to be your BIG day in every way there is.

Of course, you will do everything in your power to make sure you feel absolutely amazing on your wedding day – and that’s absolutely natural and fine.

What do you do after the wedding day? What happens with your dress, jewelry, and accessories?

Well, we have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • Keep the dress as a souvenir. Many brides decide to keep their wedding dress as a souvenir (and a lot of them think that maybe, one day, their own daughters will want to use their dresses for their own wedding day). If you decide to do this, our advice is to make sure you take it to a professional preservationist – it will help you maintain your gown’s beauty intact regardless of how long you want to keep it.
  • Donate it or give it away. If you want your wedding dress to serve a meaningful purpose once the Big Day is done, you can always donate it or give it to a friend who cannot afford buying her own gown. This gesture will bring so much happiness in someone’s life and it will make YOU feel so great about it too! Many women would “kill” to have a dress like yours – so why not make their wedding dreams come true just as yours came true on the Big Day too?
  • Sell your wedding dress. If you want to recover part of the money you invested in your wedding gown, you can always sell it as well. There are specialized boutiques that take in gently used wedding dresses and sell them further for lower prices. A bride on a lower budget will be SO happy to wear a less expensive, but absolutely stunning dress at her wedding!

You can sell your wedding jewelry and accessories too! Here at Adorn, we accept slightly used wedding day accessories for sale, so if you have something, do not hesitate to contact us as soon as possible. We guarantee you will never regret it!

4 Amazing Ways to Help You Save Money on Your Wedding Look

Monday, November 5th, 2018

As a bride, you want to look nothing less than downright spectacular as you walk down the aisle and celebrate your Big Day. However, looking picture-perfect frequently comes with a pretty hefty price. From the wedding gown itself to the shoes, hair, and even makeup, everything about your bridal look will most likely cost quite a lot.

What is there to do? What are some of the best ways to save some money on your wedding look without compromising on how a luxurious bridal look will make you feel?

We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • Hunt for a discount wedding gown. For instance, sample sizes are usually sold on heavy discounts – but even if you don’t belong to that particular sizing range, you can still find a lot of wedding dresses on discount. It’s important to follow the price reduction patterns practiced by the biggest bridal boutiques in your area. Furthermore, having all your money ready to make a payment can also save you money (e.g. you might get up to 10-20% off just for paying in advance, during special events held by the bridal boutiques).
  • Sell your wedding dress. Not particularly keen on keeping the wedding gown as a memory of the Big Day? Sell it as a gently used wedding gown – you might not be able to get back its entire price, but you will recover a pretty large sum of money this way.
  • Do your own hair and makeup. If you’re daring enough and if you know you’re crafty, why not create your own bridal hairstyle and makeup? Not only will you save a lot of money on the specialists you would have to hire otherwise, but you will also get the chance to keep a lot of products (both for your hair and for your makeup). With a bit of training and some YouTube videos, you can pull off something really nice!
  • Rent your wedding jewelry. Why pay the full price for a pair of diamond earrings you won’t be wearing anytime soon? Renting is a more financially-savvy option – and it will allow you to pick whatever pieces of jewelry suit you and your style most, without feeling restricted by a limited budget!
