Truvelle: 2014 Lookbook

5 May

Many of my Bridal client’s already know the mad love I have for these gowns, I can’t say enough good things about them… but for those of you who are just stopping in, or maybe you’re a first time reader here, You couldn’t have picked a better post to join us on 🙂

Today I share with you, a sneak peek into the 2014 Bridal look book I was a part of recently for Truvelle. I was honored to be a part of this shoot, working with an amazingly talented team, and of course Gaby with her stunning gowns!

A little about this company: Gaby previously worked with Ellebay Bridal Boutique. Last year, Gaby branched off and created Truvelle; wedding dresses for the modern bride that are unconventional and effortlessly beautiful.

Based in Vancouver, Canada. These stunning gowns are made from scratch. Gaby creates made-to-order wedding dresses, with a heavy emphasis on design, fit, and quality. All of her patterns are handcrafted and perfected, with carefully chosen fabric that is individually hand cut, and each gown has its own unique story.

In her first year, Truvelle dresses have been named as one of the favorite dresses of the year on many of the top blogs!

Take a look!

Wedding Tips: Wearing Fresh Flowers in your Hair.

6 Jun

As we head into a busy summer of weddings, the requests for wearing fresh flowers in the hair is looking strong this year!

So today I wanted to take a few minutes to list some quick tips for those looking at wearing real flowers for their big day.

1. Do not spray anything on your Flowers. This includes things like Perfume, Hairsprays, etc. Doing so can cause your flowers to wilt. Be sure to style your Hair, finishing off with your setting spray, THEN Place your fresh flowers into your style last.

2.  If you can, always try and get your florist to make or attach your fresh flowers to a Hairpin for you.

You want to make sure it’s a Hair pin (not bobby pin), large or small size – depending on the flower. Your florist can then wire or tape the flowers stem line along one of the prongs giving the flower both stability, easier pinning, but also to help balance it better to either lay flat as needed or sit up a bit more in relation with your Hairstyle.

 Your florist will also be able to tell you which flower choices will be your best option and the flowers that will last the longest when out of water, under the hot summer sun all day and more.

3. If Doing it yourself, be sure to leave some extra stem to make it easier when attaching to either your pin/clip or into the Hair.

4. Sizing. Choosing the appropriate sizing is key. You want to make sure its balanced, both with the sizing of your Hairstyle, but also your face shape.

Some client’s may opt for one large flower that corresponds with their floral choices, others might do an arrangement of multiple flowers grouped together for the appearance of one large flower or to fill a section of the style. This is also a great idea, for those looking at sneaking in a few different colored flowers, or textures of multiple flower types for added visual interest.

5. To help keep your flowers lasting as long as possible, be sure to leave them in water and/or in a refrigerator up until your last possible option before either leaving and starting into your day.

Here are a few inspiration images for you…. Enjoy! 🙂
