Planning for your wedding day is fun, exciting, yet a little stressful. This is the one time in your life that gives you the biggest excuse to celebrate. The importance of this day encourages you to decorate to the extremes and look your very best. So, what on earth should you do with your hair? Let's ask Catherine, our hair and make up consultant from BrideQueen...

Choosing Wedding Hair Styles

On your wedding day, you want to feel as confident as possible. So, choose a wedding hair style that you are going to feel comfortable with. Let's take a look at some of the things that you may be uncomfortable with. Once your insecurities are defined, we will discuss how to work around them.

What Makes You Uncomfortable?

1. A bare forehead

2. Too much volume

3. Not enough volume

4. Your super curly, kinky hair

5. Your super thin hair

6. Your super straight hair

7. Your short hair

8. Not enough hair around your face

Now that we have pinpointed some of the most popular concerns among brides, We can start addressing those concerns.

Wedding Hair: Styles That Work with You

 

1. If having a bare forehead makes you "unbarebly" uncomfortable, then don't have a bare forehead! Add some swoop bangs to your wedding hair style and stay confident. Swoop bangs are a saving grace and they look incredible with most hair styles.

2. Too much volume give you thecreeps? No problem! Add less volume to your wedding hair style; however keep enough to leave a little umph to your style if necessary. On the other hand, you can avoid the volume completely if you can pull off a sleeker wedding hair style.

3. Need more volume? All you need is a Rattail Comb and some hair spray; better yet, a Bride Queen stylist! Rat, rat, rat, spray spray spray,....Bride Queen, Bride Queen, Bride Queen; now you have some serious volume!

4. Super curly and kinky hair is actually super cute! However, having it is a different issue. Women that have super curly hair often find themselves at a loss for wedding hair style ideas. Just remember, less is best with this type of hair! Have your Bride Queen stylist throw your hair up in a loose french twist or try some super cute hair accessories. Keeping things simple, lose, or accessorized can really show off your super cute curls!

5. Thinning or thin hair is such a damper! In most cases (at least from experience) women thin more on the top and this can really bring a queen down. Good news! If you are thin or are thinning anywhere and there is still sufficient hair to work with, a little ratting, smoothing, and maybe a little curling should do the trick.

6. & 7. If your problem is short or straight hair, it really isn't a problem. HAIR ACCESSORIES are one of earth's best inventions! Wear a cute headband, add some bejeweled bobbies to your bangs, where a stylish net hair clip, or try a flower clip...is your hair long enough to braid? There are endless possibilities! Work with what you got and with what earth has got to accent it with.

8. Having a fuller or a rounder face make many women a little insecure.  These women like more hair around their face than not. For this type of concern, a down style or a half up half down style is a good choice. Keeping some of the hair down can frame the face beautifully. This look minimizes the fullness in a face, making that queen more confident. Frame your beautiful face and stay confident!

7 Tips For Wedding Dress Shopping

7 Tips for Wedding Dress Shopping

Congratulations on your recent engagement! I’m so excited for you as you begin this new phase of your life. Now that you’re engaged, you may feel a little overwhelmed with everything there is to do as you plan for your wedding. To help you as you begin your search for the dress, Lauren James Bridal put together the seven most important rules you need to follow when you go shopping:

Have a realistic price range in mind when shopping for your dress.  There are four things that go into the price of every wedding dress you’ll try on from the type of fabric, the extent of the lining & inner construction, the type of ornamentation, and the skill of the seamstress who actually makes your dress. Many brides who go shopping for a wedding dress have a number in mind when they go shopping.  Experts recommend that this number can be up from 15 to 20% of the total amount of your wedding budget.  We have a wide range of price ranges at our store and we have been told time and time again by brides all across the state that we have the best selection they’ve ever seen in every price range imaginable.  I’ve written another special report that details the myth of finding a wedding gown in the $99 to $399 price range.  While there are dresses in this price range, most manufacturers have cut corners in one of the four areas I mentioned above to offer a dress that may not be a good fit for your wedding.  I would encourage you to read this special report so you can go into the experience of dress shopping with your eyes wide open and make an informed decision about what you’ll be wearing when you publicly declare your love and union to the world.

Limit who you bring shopping with you.  When you announce your engagement, you’ll have lots of friends who will want to go shopping with you.  No matter how much they beg and plead you don’t have to bring them with you.  In fact, you may find that bringing multiple people with you only means that you are going to hear multiple opinions.  Usually these opinions are spoken based on what they would wear, not necessarily what you want to wear on your wedding date.  As a result, many brides who have brought more than three people with them have told us that it was one of the biggest mistakes they made in preparation for their wedding.  One recent bride told us that she nearly left the store crying because her well-meaning friends overwhelmed her with contradictory comments and one of her friends really hurt her feelings because of what she said about the dress she actually picked to wear on her wedding day.  You don’t want this kind of drama when you go shopping, so just bring your mother and one or two of your closest friends or family members whose opinion you trust.  If you bring more, you are asking for a smorgasbord of opinions, none of which will matter more than your own.

Plan for your appointment to take from about an hour to no more than ninety minutes.  In this time you’ll be able to try on the four silhouettes of wedding gowns (which we’ll show to you when you arrive along with the five main types of fabric the majority of wedding gowns are made from).  Within an hour of entering the store, you should have a very clear idea of what you’re looking for and very likely you will have narrowed down your choice to a couple of favorites.  Your bridal consultant can give you three helpful questions and tips that will help you decide so you can say “yes” to your dress.

Be sure to eat at least an hour before you arrive at your appointment.  That way, you can focus on the experience of finding the perfect dress instead of thinking about eating or feeling hungry. On an occasion as important as your wedding, you don’t want to feel light headed when you’re carefully considering which dress you’ll be wearing when your fiancĂ© and you are married.

Bringing children with you to your appointment will be a decision everyone in your party will regret.  A bridal salon is not a very exciting place for a young child and they will lose interest very quickly in what you are doing and will want to explore.  As a result, you and other members of your party will likely be distracted from focusing on you and helping you find your dress.  Have someone else watch the little ones and you’ll be much happier with the outcome.

Tell your consultant what you are thinking and feeling.  Your bridal consultant is there to help you find your dress.  It doesn’t hurt her feelings or the feelings of a dress if you don’t like something you try on.  Please be open and honest with her about what you like and what you don’t like.  When you are open with her, she can offer suggestions and recommendations that can help you have a more rewarding experience and find the dress much quicker.

Saying “yes” to your dress isn’t harder than it was to say “yes” to your fiancĂ©’s proposal for marriage.  Every member of our professional staff is here to help you find the dress you love most.  Once you find it, you won’t necessarily be overcome by emotion.  Emotions are felt differently by people in varying situations.  Not everyone cries when they see a touching movie or hear a tragedy or moving story.  The way you’ll feel when you find your dress will likely be very different than how a well meaning friend or family member may have felt when they found their wedding gown.  Instead of crying, most brides typically feel very excited and love to move around in their gown.  They become possessive of the gown they’re in and visualize themselves getting married on their wedding day.  When you’ve found the dress you love, go ahead and say “yes to the dress.”  Then, you’ll be able to take a deep breath and know that you’ve done it! Since 80% of brides buy on their dress from us on their first visit, and we have the opportunity for you to save up to $300 on your wedding dress and accessories with our First Visit Advantage Program, we invite you to please come prepared to buy your dress.  We look forward to helping you say yes to your dress.
