Tuesday, September 16th, 2014 | Filed under: Wedding Fashions, Wedding Shoes | author: By BLG,    

Ways to Make Your First Looks More SpecialA top wedding trend is for the bride and groom to forget about that old wedding superstition that it’s bad luck for the bride and groom to see each other before the ceremony.

You’ll get that amazing first look at each other, in a spectacular wedding setting, and capture the expressions on your faces when you see each other in your wedding attire for the very first time.

Tuesday, March 18th, 2014 | Filed under: For the Bride, Wedding Fashions, Wedding Shoes | author: By BLG,    

At our northern New Jersey location, with such close proximity to New York Fashion Week and the epicenter of fashion trends, as well as to shopping meccas like the Short Hills Mall, our brides have their fingers on the pulse of the latest trends in bridal fashion. And one of those trends is for the bride to wear sensational shoes on her wedding day. Designer shoes are in demand, with Jimmy Choo and Christian Laboutin shoes leading the trend.

The bride’s wedding shoes are of such great importance that some brides are choosing their wedding dress style for its ability to show off their shoes. For instance, the big trend of short wedding dresses shows off the bride’s shoes, and there are even wedding dresses that are knee-length in front, draping gracefully to full length in the back to frame the bride’s choice of dazzling shoes.

Gorgeous wedding shoes are such a valued part of the bride’s wedding day look that professional wedding photographers are taking the same kinds of close-up spotlight photos of the shoes that they do of the wedding rings. Read more…

Pinterest is so much more than a collection of pretty pictures; for brides, Pinterest provides a look at the top wedding trends (so that they can decide if they’d like to follow the trends or avoid them!) in every wedding planning category from wedding gowns to wedding flowers, décor, photography, rings, and especially wedding locations and wedding food and drinks.

When you’re researching and booking wedding vendors and sites, it’s important for your wedding experts and wedding site managers to get a crystal-clear understanding of what you want for your wedding day. And as they say, “a picture is worth a thousand words.” When you can present to your wedding experts and wedding site team a collection of images of what you want, and what you don’t want, the experts to whom you entrust your wedding vision get that clear picture of what you both would like, and they can then start creating it for you, right down to the garnish on the appetizers you call a Must.

Every bride wants to look stunning for her wedding celebration, and truly enjoys the pre-wedding preparations that include planning her wedding day beauty look. To design your perfect wedding day hair and makeup styles, it’s important to remember that wedding hair trends and wedding makeup trends are only guides to helping you choose the loveliest styles for your unique look. Your skin tone, hair personality and condition, and comfort with more dramatic wedding makeup and elaborate wedding up-do’s will greatly determine what your wedding look will be.

As the well-known wedding beauty adage goes, “You’ll look like you, only better.”

The first step in determining your wedding hair and makeup styles, you’ll first consider the style and location of your wedding. If you’ll have a formal outdoor wedding, your hair might be swept up in an elegant fashion or left loose and flowing in a romantic style. A daytime wedding calls for more natural makeup, while a nighttime wedding that’s more formal calls for dramatic makeup. According to top wedding makeup trends, bold, red lips can be worn in any wedding style, since it is a signature style of today’s weddings. Read more…

Engagement Ring

Your engagement ring will always be with you, as an ever-present reminder of the moment you became engaged, and as a symbol of the deep and beautiful love between you. Since this ring is such a focal point on your hand, and since it will be one of your most treasured possessions, a great deal of care must go into choosing the perfect engagement ring. That’s why a top wedding trend right now is for the bride to be involved in designing or selecting her engagement ring.
