A Simple Shade

Friday, July 29th, 2016

This week we’re going to keep it simple. Instead of matching up our jewelry with extravagant gowns full of color and frills, we’re going to show you how a little bit of colorful sparkle can do wonders for a simple dress!

First up is our Ruby Bracelet. This classic gold bracelet is surrounded by diamonds and rubies fit for a queen! We matched it with an elegant and simple Lela Rose mermaid gown. This dress gives off an air of sophistication that works perfectly with this deep colored bracelet.
The second match we’ve created is our blue sapphire Dryden Bracelet with a simple southern wedding dress. This dress is full of southern charm with its lace design on top and a flowing white skirt. The blue of the Dryden Bracelet just adds more romantic charm to the look!
Lastly, we have a beautiful Justin Alexander cap sleeve gown that we paired with our Alicia Bracelet. This genuine Opal bracelet is wrapped with real gold to create a simple, elegant look. Opal is the stone of hope and innocence and we think it looks stunning with a simple cap sleeve gown!

The Makeup Woes

Wednesday, June 29th, 2016
Every bride wants to look their best on their wedding day and for most brides that means applying a bit of makeup before they walk down the aisle. But what is the best way to do wedding makeup? Should you do your own everyday makeup or should you hire a professional to really get that perfect bride look? We had a quick Q & A with our partner, Christina Lawton from Captivating Beauty to answer some of our questions!
Q: How many hours ahead should a bride have her makeup done?
A: I like to have my brides ready at least an hour before their ceremony. I usually spend that hour or so before they need to go, helping them get ready for the walk down the isle. Its usually the time where if anything goes wrong, is the time to fix/adjust the situation and the Bride’s stress level will be at her highest. Take that time to sit, relax and let the people around you handle everything else.
Q: Should a bride do touch ups on her own or by a makeup artist?
A: Many of my Brides book me by my day rate, where they get me plus my assistant for a set amount of time that runs from the morning to their reception. This way they get an all inclusive styling and touch up experience and  don’t need to worry about anything. They like it because beyond touch ups, they can switch up their look for the evening. For my brides that book ala carte, they usually get a Glam Kitti which I customize for them and sometimes the whole bridal party will get one! Its the best little touch up kit that you can put your setting powder, lip color or concealer in and includes a mirror, blotting paper, lip brush, spatula and powder puff. Because I’ve customized with with everything I’ve already applied its perfect!
Q: Is it important to do a practice round of makeup before the wedding or should a bride just show up and get her makeup done?
A: I always require a trial before any Bride’s wedding. It’s essential because its a time for me and my bride to talk and decide what look will make her feel the most beautiful. By deciding before the wedding day, takes the stress away and saves time the day of. Imagine trying to figure out of you want a bold lip, smokey eye or subtle pinks while on a time crunch to get ready, into your gown, bouquets in hand and then possibly not be happy with the look you “just went with” because there was no time left.
Q: What are the best colors for a bride? Does it depend on the type of wedding?
A: Colors for a Bridal look depends completely on a brides tones, personality and even culture. Some weddings like Indian, Persian and some Asian cultures use certain colors of significance for their ceremonies.
Q: What brands of makeup do you think is best for wedding makeup?
A: There really aren’t brands that are best for bridal but it is more important to look at the ingredients in the makeup. For example, did you know spf can cause a flashback from a professional photograph? Some of my favorite brands to use are Make Up For Ever, RCMA, Temptu, Viseart and Skindinavia’s Bridal Setting Spray. I carry a range of brands in my kit because so many brands have great products. Many people like Ben Nye banana powder, I go for RCMA’s no color powder. Anyone of any race can use it because there’s no tint to it and you can re apply as much as you want to touch up and it wont ever change the look of your makeup.
Q: Should a bride do her own makeup or have it professionally done?
A: I get a lot of comments regarding what a professional makeup application costs because “anyone can do it.” The answer is yes, you can, and you could also take your own wedding pictures and record it all on your camcorder and play music from your iPod. But you don’t, why? Because you know a professional will do a better job. People might not even remember what music was played at your wedding or what type of flowers you had, but they WILL remember what you looked like, and you’ll have the photos for a lifetime. Don’t you want to make sure you look picture perfect ready in all of them? On the day you go from Miss to Mrs wouldn’t you like to be pampered for the day and not worry about anything?
Q: What kind of products do you use to keep makeup from melting in the heat?
A: Make Up For Ever with some mattifyling gel does great in the heat! A finishing spray to lock it in will seal the deal and if it all goes awry, ill be there to reapply anything as needed…unless you have your glam kitti!!
Q: What sort of makeup do you do for a bride that likes having her makeup to the extreme? How about a bride that wants as little makeup as possible?
A: You can apply the same makeup to 2 different brides and get 2 different looks all depending how you apply! Brides who want a glammed up look will often opt for a more smokey eye or bold lip while a more subtle bride will like a soft pink lip, natural blush and light color on the lid. Sometimes a bride will go light for the ceremony and for the reception, all i meed is to change up the lip color, smoke up the eyes and touch up the blush and she goes from blushing bride to beautiful bombshell!
Q: What kind of weddings have you done makeup for?
A: I’ve done large, intimate, cultural weddings where I’m booked for a three day period, destination weddings and high end weddings that cost upwards of 1-200,000. When a client chooses me for their wedding, your choosing a luxury experience far past your makeup application.
There you have it friends! We had a lot of questions and Christina had all the answers! You can check out her website for more information on bridal makeup and don’t forget to check out Adorn for all your bridal jewelry!

Barn Bride

Thursday, June 23rd, 2016

Rustic WeddingBarn weddings have never been more popular than right now and summer is the perfect time for them! Three things to keep in mind for your rustic barn wedding are lots of flowers, plenty of wooden elements, and the perfect dress. The key to a picture perfect rustic wedding is sticking flowers wherever you can. Pick out plenty of options and add them into your centerpieces, down the aisle, and anywhere in between. Obviously, a wedding wouldn’t be rustic without its wooden elements: A cute little sign, lots of wooden chairs for your guests, and of course, the wooden barn of your dreams! Lastly, make sure you’ve got the perfect dress. We’ve picked out one that perfectly combines that rustic feel with a touch of modern design. By pairing the dress with our Isabella Hair Pin and Materson Bracelet, you get the perfect touch of sparkle on your rustic wedding day!

A Wedding by the Ocean

BEach Wedding Ideas

One of the most popular summer wedding venues is the beach and we couldn’t love the idea more! Warm sand and beautiful ocean views make a wedding even more romantic. Seashells and starfish are simple and easy ideas to incorporate into a beach wedding! By placing both of these things in the bouquet and the boutonnière, your wedding party will be ready for their places by a beautiful blue archway to match the blue of the ocean waves. Matching  centerpieces on the tables will add a finishing touch! The ocean waves are always flowing and so should the dresses of your beach wedding! The bridesmaid dresses we chose are short, strapless and blue to offset the white of the long, flowy wedding dress. For jewelry ideas, we picked out some of our real diamond pieces that go well with both dresses. The first item we chose is our infinity diamond Vandervelden Necklace that gently scallops around the neckline. It’s one of our newer pieces and is already growing in popularity with modern brides! The Vandervelden Necklace looks beautiful with our Middleton Earrings. These earrings are modeled after the earrings that Kate Middleton wore as she married Prince William. Their retail value is $10,875.00 but you can rent them from Adorn for $160.00! They are sure to add a royal look to a beautiful beach wedding! To tie these sparkly jewelry pieces together we included our Anne pearl hair comb. This hair comb has a sprawling design of crystal and pearl clusters that are sure to make a bold statement. All of these pieces, together or individually, are sure to bring a special sparkle to any beach wedding! Below is a collage of beach wedding dress ideas for a simple look. In the top left corner, you will see on of our brides from Pasadena wearing our Lockwood Earrings for her beach wedding! This is a great picture of the beach bride and a great dress as well. We included three dresses from J. Crew’s beach wedding department! The other two dresses are from Tommy Bahama. We chose these dresses because not only do they have that simple beach look, but they also have a bridal feel to them that will make your wedding day even better!

If you’re a bride planning your wedding for 2012, this is the contest for you. Now through the end of the year, we’re holding our Cute Couples Contest. It’s a phrase people throw around all the time – “They make such a cute couple.”
What makes a cute couple? The reasons vary. It’s how a couple behaves together, how they influence each other, maybe inspire others – or each other (“He makes me a better person.”). It’s how a couple interacts with one another and the world around them. Maybe it’s as simple as that “something”, or those “somethings”, that drew you to one another in the first place.
To enter, submit a photo of you and your fiancé and tell us why you make a cute couple. Then… get out the vote! That’s right, tell your friends and family to vote and help you win. Ready to enter? Click here and good luck!

Green Brides Rent Diamonds

Monday, March 1st, 2010

The Green movement is everywhere, at the supermarket in new cleaning products, on the runway in organic and bamboo fashions, and even on our favorite television shows. According to Recycled Bride, the hottest green trend for 2010 is adding sustainable products and green friendly customs into your wedding day.

Here are a few tips:

Buy Pre-Owned Wedding and Bridesmaids Dresses: Obtaining a pre-owned wedding dress is easier than it sounds. A lot of great websites deal in the ‘recycling’ of wedding dresses and WHY NOT? You always get a great deal, the dresses are beautiful, and you’re helping a fellow bride out. Who knows, maybe she bought the dress in a rush and then found her dream gown 3 months later (which totally happened to one of my good friends). If you’re looking for a good website to start looking, we love the gals at Encore Bridal. Check them out!

green-wedding-tipsPre-owned Wedding Decorations: I like this option because it’s not necessarily one that everyone thinks about. Its not like you’re reusing flowers and napkins, it’s the cake server you use only once, the large/colored candy dishes you need for the centerpieces, the Victorian themed wedding gift card box you wanted so much. You can look for these pre-owned items anywhere, but I recommend checking out Etsy.com, RecycledBride.com, or even asking anyone of your friends who’s gotten married lately if they have anything you could use. 24 hrs before my wedding I realized I didn’t have 1)a unity candle (it’s a Catholic thing), 2)a cake server, and 3)a case to hold the bubbles everyone used when my husband and I left the church. Thank goodness one of my bridesmaids tied the knot a month before and was able to dig up all of the above.

earringsRent Your Bridal Jewelry: This ones my favorite! Not only is it economical to rent Adorns gorgeous dazzling diamonds – it’s great for mother earth too. Renting genuine diamonds helps to reduce your carbon footprint. Don’t believe me? Just check the Green Bride Guide for their tips on creating a sustainable wedding by renting your dress and jewelry. There’s nothing I love more than being green and looking

Its run by Emily Anderson – the author of the 2007 bestseller Eco Chic Wedding  – and has some of the best advice on how to create a wedding that’s sophisticated, stylish, and sustainable.
