Thursday, February 28th, 2019

  • Strapless wedding dresses work with almost anything. Ideally, you want to create balance between the bare shoulders (and bare back) and leave your hair down. However, depending on how intricate the design of the bodice is, you might also want to pull your hair up – or leave it in a half-up half-down hairdo. Strapless wedding gowns are among the most versatile options in terms of the hairdos they can work with, so you’ve got lots of options here!
  • Off the shoulder wedding gowns look absolutely elegant and romantic. However, you have to pay attention to them because leaving your hair completely down might make you feel like too much is happening around your shoulders. You can either pull your hair up in romantic updos (e.g. a subtly braided updo with a few floating curls), or you can leave it swept to the side (a side braid, a side bun, or even a side pony tail, for example). However you decide to pull it back, leaving your shoulders and décolletage open and on display works best with this style of bodice.
  • Boat neck wedding dresses are really sophisticated and elegant, and the key here lies in keeping your hair away from the base of the neck, where the boat neckline starts. There are a million lovely ways to pull your hair up – and, depending on the actual design of the dress, you can land on something that’s either very romantic, like a messy bun with a few curls escaping, or very polished, like a clean chignon.
  • V-necks wedding gowns are all about delicacy and femininity, so the hairstyle should suit that vibe. Leaving your hair down or pulling it in a curled half-up half-down hairdo are both popular options. You can also go for an oversized side bun, or, if the dress allows for it, a slightly messy side braid, which will look really romantic and feminine with a more casual, rustic-chic wedding dress.

Monday, February 11th, 2019

You want to be the most splendid bride that has ever graced the earth with her smile as she walks down the aisle. And that’s perfectly understandable – every bride is unique in her own way, and her wedding day is a totally unique moment in her life. So yes, looking at your very, very best, is surely a priority on your list – and for a long list of good reasons too.

Your hair, your makeup, your dress – they all matter a lot. And so does your wedding jewelry – the precious pieces you will adorn your attire with to complement it in a beautiful and elegant way.

What happens with the bridal jewelry after the wedding, though?

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

  • Wear it. Who says you have to pay hundreds or even thousands of dollars for a piece and only wear it once? If you feel that your wedding jewelry would be suitable for other special occasions too, you can definitely wear it. A small and dainty necklace can be worn even on a more casual basis, if you feel that it’s a nice way to remind yourself of the magic of the Big Day!
  • Keep it. Some brides want to preserve their entire wedding look for as long as possible. Dress preservations and bouquet preservations are a real thing, and it’s easy to understand why a lady might want to make sure these items look flawless for the longest time. You can do the same with your wedding jewelry too – but don’t forget to have it professionally cleaned every now and again if you want them to stay just as pretty as they are today! Who knows, maybe one day your own daughter will want to wear your blue earrings on her wedding day!
  • Sell it. Want to save some money (and maybe use it for a luxury honeymoon)? You can definitely sell your gently used bridal jewelry and accessories too – and this is something you can do with your dress and even with your wedding décor.

Looking for gently used wedding jewelry for your Big Day? Or maybe for a place that will allow you to rent these pieces for the most special event of your life? Contact Adorn right now and come see the stunning options we offer. You won’t regret it!

4 Things to Know before You Attend Your Final Wedding Dress Fitting Appointment

Sunday, February 3rd, 2019

Looking picture-perfect is one of the most important items on a bride’s list of to-do’s – and it all starts with picking the right wedding dress to suit her, her style, her personality, her story.

Once you have ordered your gown, you will also have to attend a few fitting appointments to ensure that your wedding dress is perfect for your body – and your final wedding dress fitting appointment is of the utmost importance.

What are some of the essential things to know before you attend your final wedding dress fitting appointment?

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

  • If you plan on losing weight, make sure you stop around the time you have your final wedding gown fitting appointment. You want this appointment to be the last one, so your wedding dress should suit your body as you will “wear” it on your Big Day. Of course, weight loss can happen afterwards too, but do make sure your dress will be able to adjust to that.
  • By the time you have your last fitting appointment, you should already own your wedding shoes. Most importantly, you should bring them with you to your fitting appointment. This is extremely important because it will determine the actual length of your wedding gown.
  • It is also important to bring the wedding day undergarments with you as well. Yes, you should bring along the actual undergarments you plan on wearing on your wedding day. This will allow your seamstress to fit the dress around your body in a way that makes the undergarments invisible (and it will also allow you to make undergarment adjustments in case you notice any irregularities during the last fitting appointment).
  • Last, but not least, it is recommended that you bring your major wedding accessories with you too. For instance, your wedding veil is important for the fitting appointment, especially if it’s very long and it needs to coordinate with the train. Other accessories are important too, because they will help you gain a better perspective of how you will actually look on your wedding day.
