Bridal Hair Trial

Bridal Hair Trial Tips

Preparing for your bridal hair trial

The second most important part of your wedding attire after the dress…what will I do with my hair?

A hair trial is essential to make sure you are prepared for the wedding day and to make sure you choose the perfect hair accessory or tiara which suits you and the bridal look you are trying to achieve. Here are some simple tips to help you prepare for your hair trial…

1) Browse the internet or wedding magazines before the hair trial day to find pictures, magazine cutouts and ideas of the look you want to achieve. Do you want a formal updo, something loose, flowing and romantic or a vintage creation?

2) Take a photo of your dress to the hair trial so the hairstylist can take inspiration from the style of your gown.

3) Choose a photo of yourself from a special occasion or night out with a hairstyle which you think suits you the most as this might give the hairstylist ideas about how to adapt a hairstyle to suit you.

4) If you have already purchased your bridal hair accessories or tiara you want to wear, take this to the hair trial. Sometimes you may have two pieces which you like and want the hairstylist to try both of them.

Remember, this isn’t about experimenting – its all about creating a look and finish which suits you and reflects your personality. For ultimate perfection, your hairstyle and the hairpiece you choose may also tie in with your wedding theme, wedding palette or even feature some personal touches!

How to wear a Bridal Cuff

Bridal Cuffs and Bracelets

Bridal Cuffs

Cuffs, Bracelets, Bangles…whatever you choose as wrist candy you can rest assured its guaranteed to add sparkle to your bridal outfit! Not only does a beautiful crystal bracelet add shimmer and interest to you ensemble but it will enhance and balance the accessories you choose to wear with your wedding dress.

If you have chosen  a simple pair of studs or a pendant set then a very understated, thin bracelet which matches the stones and shape of your jewellery is perfect to complete your look.  For a more glamorous, Hollywood style finishing touch – select a cuff which suits your outfit and frame. Petite brides should opt for a slimline design which doesn’t look too heavy but otherwise bigger is bolder. A clasp style crystal cuff is the right choice with a pair of chandelier style earrings. If you have chosen a one shoulder bridal gown then wear the cuff on the opposite arm to your shoulder detail to harmonise the look.

Bridal Cuff Bracelets are designed to work with a variety of different shaped bridal gowns. Strapless wedding dresses demand statement bridal jewellery whereas understated cuffs will be better to complement a high neck or halter neck gown. Remember, the detail in your dress – whether it is pearls, crystals or AB stones – should be the starting point for choosing your accessories. For a wide selection of bridal cuffs from various designer brands, visit our website.

Tips for choosing Wedding Earrings

Tips for choosing your wedding earrings

Tips for choosing your wedding earrings

Choosing your bridal jewellery can be daunting…especially if you don’t usually wear many accessories. Brides who are shopping for their earrings, necklace or headpiece should always remember that although their wedding day is a chance for them to create an elegant, glamorous look…you still need to feel comfortable with what your outfit and it should still reflect your personal style as much as possible. Earrings are the most popular bridal accessory once a headpiece or tiara has been chosen so there are some really important things to consider when finalising the pair of drops you will wear:

1. Think about whether the earrings are a similar drop to the styles you usually wear for every day or special occasions…if you are used to wearing big earrings then a pair of pearl chandelier drops will be perfect but if you only usually wear studs or no earrings at all then studs or a very small droplet style will be the best choice.

2. Consider how the style of earrings frame your face. Are the earrings wider at the top and narrower at the bottom or vice versa…drops and chandelier earrings will flatteringly elongate your face and create a slimmer silhouette in your photographs. If you want the majority of attention on a statement tiara or headpiece then opt for studs only.

3. Are you wearing a necklace? If you have chosen to adorn your neckline with a pendant then your earrings should be of similar size to your pendant to create a balanced look. If you want to make a statement in a big necklace then your earrings need to match the necklace as much as possible – to keep the focus on the necklace choose studs only but if you want to create a full-on glamorous look then you can choose larger drops which match your necklace as part of a set.

4. Are you wearing a bracelet or cuff? If you have decided to wear a bracelet then your earrings should match or at least reflect the style and design of your hand jewellery. A statement pair of large chandelier earrings are best balanced with an equally bold cuff bracelet or cuff bangle. A delicate, pearl chain bracelet will look best with a pair of medium drop pearl earrings or a simple pair of studs.

5. Comfort, comfort, comfort! For hygiene reasons, you can’t try on earrings before you buy them…but you can hold them up to your ears, judge how much they weigh or if you are buying online check the weight of the earrings before you place your order. Compare this information to the styles of earrings you wear on a daily basis or for parties to check if you will comfortably manage to keep the earrings in your ears all day.

Wedding earrings  are an essential piece of bridal jewellery for many brides in every country, every culture and to create a variety of different bridal looks. Browse online and in shops to ensure you find your perfect pair!

Vintage Wedding Shoes

Vintage Wedding Shoes

Vintage Wedding Shoes by Benjamin Adams

We thought our brides might like a sneak preview of the brand new Benjamin Adams 2014 collection…

The renowned footwear brand have combined their glamorous signature style with vintage chic to create some amazing bridal shoes. Using luscious leather trim in beautiful hues of gold and beautiful fabrics such as organza and lace, the new styles are dazzlingly different!

Brides who are familiar with the brand will recognise that popular shoe shapes remain…the round toe court style of the Gaga and the twisted strappy sandal design of the Claudia have been revamped into Preston – an elegant, vintage T-bar with the perfect tone of gold leather and Elizabeth – high heels with organza overlay and cute embroidery. The new range is all about texture – an inventive use of fabrics, trims and brooches add a delicate touch and inspire brides with ultra feminine design. This new outlook on the Benjamin Adams footwear collection offers something for brides who demand vintage wedding shoes with a touch of subtlety rather than full-on sparkly g glamour. A selection of unique styles for brides who don’t want to compromise on designer quality.

Don’t forget to check our website in September 2013 for the launch of the new collection.
