The Best of Bridal: Styles of the Past 100 Years


We absolutely love this amazing video published by Glamour! Showcasing the lovely engagement rings and popular bridal looks of the past 100 years, this stylish shoot features all kinds of pretty.


Which decade is your favorite? We adored them all, so here’s the scoop on how to style your very own vintage-inspired look!Family-000077062903_Medium.jpg


At the turn of the century, modest Edwardian gowns and simple rings were in vogue. Think parasols, bustiers, stockings—the whole nine yards! Veils during this era were long and simple, often accompanied by flowered hats or floral garlands.


Our Top Picks: Style this look with a vintage gown à la Downton Abbey and classic accessories like headpiece 6410, veil V7198, and bracelet BC141.



This decade was all about opulence and fashion-forward sparkle. Thanks to the Gatsby movie a few years back, modern brides inspired by this jazzy era have plenty of options! Geometric designs, beautiful beading, and Art Deco lines create a fabulous ‘20s theme.


Our Top Picks: Style this look with a jazzy, beaded sheath gown and sparkly accessories. Try on headpiece 6351, a clip like 6405, and a tie veil such as 6354.



Due to the economic crash of the Great Depression, this era featured much more modest wedding attire. Suit sets and blazers came into style, though intricately beaded cap veils were still popular.

Our Top Picks: Petite bow clip 6607, Chantilly lace cap 6364, and bracelet BC130.



Much like the previous decade, dress suit sets were popular and often worn by military brides. Modest, high-necked wedding dresses and long veils were in style. Flower headpieces, pearls, and lace gowns grew in popularity.


Our Top Pics: Style a look of endearing romance with pearl crown headpiece 6491, tie lace veil 6444, and pearl jewelry set J2094.



The economic upswing of the ‘50s meant more extravagant wedding attire! Stand-out examples include Jacqueline Kennedy’s beautiful off-the-shoulder bridal gown and decadent cap veil, as well as Grace Kelly’s high neck lace gown and lace trimmed veil.


Our Top Picks: Style this look with a period-inspired French net veil like 6225 or a dramatic cathedral veil like V7179C. Add pearl-encrusted bracelet BC139.



Diverse fashions in the ‘60s offered brides everything from long lace sleeves to full-skirted princess gowns to modest going-away suits. Some brides wore hats, some wore flowers, and some went with multi-tiered veils.


Our Top Picks: A dreamy veil with lots of volume like V7164, Venise lace flower clip 6533, or drop earrings EA227.



Spread the love! Bohemian looks were all the rage (and are still loved by the modern boho-chic bride). Floral lace veils, unstructured dresses with lots of layers, and flower headbands were popular.


Our Top Picks: Stick a pretty flower on lace headwrap 6378, wear a lovely lace-trimmed veil like V7322, or try on a sparkling vine headband like 6647.


The poufy sleeves, crazy colors, and big volume of the 1980s left a lasting impression. Over-the-top veils and voluminous gowns with long trains became popular after Princess Diana’s 1981 wedding. Opulent ceremonies with lots of lace and floral accents became the big thing.


Our Top Picks: Re-create a retro look with an eye-catching headpiece like 6324, a dramatic cathedral veil like V7196C, and bling-worthy jewelry like BC102.



Sleek and slim became popular in the ‘90s, with satin gowns, spaghetti straps, and simple silhouettes taking over. Crisp updos and minimal makeup were preferred to create an elegant, refined look. Brides began to incorporate colored sashes or ombré gowns.


Our Top Picks: A princess tiara like 6304, a ribbon edge veil like V9999, and dainty jewelry set J2035.



In the past decade, strapless princess-style dresses and dramatic skirts ruled the runways. Fit and flare lace gowns and destination wedding looks became popular. Fingertip veils grew in demand, while unique accessories personalized each bride’s ensemble.


Our Top Picks: A beaded edge veil like V7301, sparkly headpiece like 6587, and a beautifully embellished belt like BT030.


Welcome to The Pinterest Bride era! Today, customization is everything. Lace sleeves, creatively embellished backs, and whimsical layers offer brides plenty of options. Designers offer gowns in a range of colors. Beaded patterns, removable overskirts, dress separates, and new laces have taken center stage. Cathedral veils are back.


Our Top Picks: A dreamy foldover cathedral veil like V7234, nature-inspired headpiece like 6605, and shoulder jewelry like SH209.



What do you think the next decade will bring? A return to the sleek and sparkly styles of the 1920s, a throwback to retro designs from the ‘70s or ‘80s, or something entirely new?

Our 5 Prettiest Lace Veils


There’s nothing more romantic or dreamy than a stunning cathedral veil. Lace edges lend a feminine, utterly graceful accent to your bridal ensemble—in fact, these beautiful trims have been used in weddings for hundreds of years! While most laces nowadays are machine-embroidered and then stitched on or beaded by hand, the effect is still absolutely gorgeous. Check out our different types of lace veils and discover the perfect design for your wedding day.

Chantilly Lace


Originally created in France, Chantilly lace is characteristically soft and pairs well with flowing gowns and layered overskirts. An airy, eyelash lace design flawlessly complements a fairy-tale ensemble. Style V7210 features a beautiful cascading 2-tier waltz length veil edged in soft Chantilly lace. Pair it up with sparkling jewelry to complete a formal look, or go boho-chic and add a floral headpiece for an utterly romantic outfit.

Venise Flowers


Venise lace originated in Italy and is characterized by Baroque floral scrolling patterns. More structured than many other modern laces, Venise flowers make a striking impression and were used on Princess Kate’s veil back in 2011. Style V7273 features a simple rolled edge and beautiful, narrow Venise lace flowers along the curve of a flattering fingertip veil. This timeless, elegant look is truly fit for royalty.

Floral Appliqués


We’ve all heard the saying, less is more. Scattered lace appliqués add a touch of nature-inspired bridal beauty to your ensemble without an overpowering amount of trim. Perfect for a more whimsical look or an outdoor rustic wedding theme, scattered lace beautifully complements a lace gown with subtle sweetness. Style V7159 incorporates floral appliqués and a classic cut edge in a waltz length design. So romantic, we are swooning!

Metallic Embroidery


Metallic embroidered lace adds rich, luxurious beauty to any bridal gown. This look can be vintage-inspired or totally modern, depending on how you style it. Many designers have created dresses with lavish gold embroidery or stunning silver beadwork. Style V7281 features a metallic rolled edge and beautiful metallic lace appliqués that can be customized in silver or gold. Add accessories such as gold jewelry or a beaded belt to finish off a look that is all you.

Alençon Lace


Our best-loved veils feature Alençon lace. Formal, feminine, and beautifully elegant, Alençon lace was originally created in France and remains a stunning addition to any bridal ensemble. Style V7034CX is our most coveted cathedral veil, featuring a light rolled edge and lavish, eye-catching lace embellishing the sides and bottom curve. This gorgeous style is perfect for the pure romantic.

7 Actually Fun Bridal Shower Ideas


So you want to plan an amazing bridal shower! All you need are engagement-themed trinkets and flowery place settings—right?

The tricky thing is that the bride’s besties don’t always know each other. Cousins and work buddies and mom’s friends get thrown in together. Enter awkward silences.

You can beat the bridal shower blues with fun, eclectic activities! Customize these fabulous party ideas to entertain a variety of ages and personalities.


Champagne & Cocktails

Drinks are a MUST at any bridal shower. Go with a fun summer theme by serving strawberry lemonade or raspberry cocktails, and definitely share the ultimate bridal bubbly: champagne! For underage guests or non-drinkers, sparkling cider will do the trick.


Dessert Bar & Cakes

There’s nothing cuter than a dessert bar. Serve all kinds of sweets and everyone will find something they love. Sparkly cakes, brownies, fudge, chocolate strawberries, pretzels, and the bride’s favorite candy are just a few ideas. If you have invited celiac or diabetic guests, include gluten-free or sugar-free options for them to enjoy, too!


Deluxe Men in Tuxes (servers)

Mix things up! The bridal shower is typically a female-only event, but for added pizazz, throw in a few well-dressed men. You can recruit the groom and his pals to serve drinks, or hire butlers in tuxes. Either way, you’ll have some good-looking guys waiting on you.


Wonderland Tea Party

Want to make it classy? Host a tea party, complete with fine china and a variety of tea-time treats! And because the party doesn’t have to be all about eating, you can practice fortune telling with tea leaves, put advice for the bride and groom in a tea pot, or take wonderland-themed pics with props.


Cute Cake Pop Favors

Everyone loves taking favors home. Since the point of a bridal shower is to shower the bride with presents, it’s only polite to give guests something back. Sweet little cake pops, DIY hot chocolate, or s’mores bags are just a few edible gift ideas. You can also give tiny potted plants, packets of seeds, bracelet charms, or miniature makeup kits.


DIY Flower Crowns

Art projects are time-intensive and give your attendees something creative to take home. Host a DIY flower crown station for some summer fun—you can even encourage people to wear them to the wedding! Provide pretty fabric flowers, luxe craft paper, or fresh blooms and watch as your guests create their own customized, beautiful hair accessories.


Sparkly Bracelet-Making

Who doesn’t love sparkle? Give guests something pretty to wear to the wedding with a DIY bracelet-making station. A bit of filament, some jewelry findings, a few crystal beads, and voilà! You’ll have personalized, take-home favors that every person will love—because she made it herself.

Top 8 Beauty Tips for Brides


With the 2016 wedding season kicking off, many brides are faced with the question: how should I style myself for the big day?

For the past few years, the trend has been to go as you are. Natural is a safe bet, so your groom won’t be left wondering exactly who that is walking down the aisle. However…

On the flip side, if you don’t glam up for the big day, when will you? Your wedding is the perfect time to pull out all the stops and really WOW him.

Say hello to our top 8 tips for styling a jaw-dropping look on the big day, while still feeling like YOU.


Beautiful Nails

It’s easy to remember getting a manicure after you’ve just been engaged, because everyone keeps asking to see the ring. Be sure you have pretty nails for the wedding, too! They’ll show up in everything from couple’s photos to bouquet pictures to shots of you holding hands. Choose a neutral tone that will look beautifully bridal with your gown, or go for a romantic shade such as light pink. Add a sparkly or clear overcoat of polish to help keep your nails from getting nicked or smeared.

All About The Eyes

Don’t you want to lock eyes across the room? Give him (or her) chills by creating a dramatic eye. You can play off your color scheme with a pop of color, if that’s your thing, or accentuate your irises with a rich metallic. For daytime weddings, we suggest keeping it neutral with nudes and sheer colors—take it to a bolder place with deeper hues and sparkling layers for the evening reception.


Fresh, Kissable Lips

Every bride should look absolutely kissable on the big day—and not just because you seal the deal with your lips! Sport a lovely smile from the ceremony to the reception with a dewy (but not sticky) lip gloss. Prep by staying hydrated and lightly exfoliating your lips before applying lip gloss, a liner, and a light color. For a youthful or daytime look, stick to pinks, corals, and neutrals—for the evening, pull out a bolder hue.

That Effortless Glow

You’re all heard the word applied to everything from gowns to skin to an abstract idea of beauty: effortless. This look is anything but easy, but with a few tricks, you’ll have it nailed! Start with as clear skin as possible (wash your face, apply toner, and moisturize as usual in the weeks leading up to the wedding). Apply a matte makeup or concealer and practice smoothing your tone. A light powder will cover uneven spots—then use a pearly highlighter or a dusting of blush for that lovely glow. The key here is to keep it light. Only use what you need and bring oil-blotting wipes to refresh your look.


Thick Wedding Lashes

Even if you’re planning on neutral wedding makeup, bold lashes are a must. Your eyes will stand out in the photos, and you’ll love how gorgeous and Hollywood this look makes you feel. Try on some fake lashes, or if you prefer to go natural, choose an eco-friendly (not tested on animals) mascara that will leave your lashes black, thick, and slightly curled.

Hot Hair Styles

Top looks this season include loose buns, all kinds of braids, and messy updos. If you’re going hair up, consider a chic (easy maintenance) bun. This style will hold all day. For a more rustic or youthful look, braided updos are making a comeback.

For a romantic style, a twisted chignon with loose tendrils looks especially pretty with a sparkly headpiece. Want to wear your hair down? Use a curling iron and a reliable mousse or spray to achieve celeb-worthy, beachy waves.


Drama In The Back

Everyone will be watching your walk down the aisle. This is why so many designers have created gowns with back details such as sheer laces, buttons, flowers, or back jewelry.

Make sure you look amazing with a headpiece and/or veil to give the back of your head some style. Tuck a sparkly comb or some pins into any updo—for down hairstyles, consider a bridal halo or headband. Cathedral veils are totally in, so make sure you try on a long veil to complement your gown.

Trend: Flower Accents

The Fall 2016 and Spring 2017 bridal runways showcased tons of flowers. The gorgeous sheer floral laces, ethereal layers, and dimensional flowers on this year’s bridal gowns are just begging to pair with luxurious lace veils and flower hair accessories.

Incorporate modern beauty into your look with floral earrings or jewelry. You can tuck fresh flowers into your hair, or better yet, tie on a pretty flower wreath made with soft organza and sparkling with tiny rhinestones. It’s your day to shine!

5 Reasons You Should Have a Spring Wedding


Trying to set a date? Say “I do” to a gorgeous spring wedding! We are absolutely in love with the romantic stylings available to spring brides. Here are our five favorite reasons for kicking off your marriage between March and May!


Pretty Flowers Everywhere

We’re talking flower petals in the aisle, flower curtains adorning the walls, tall vases of flowers, flowers hanging from the ceiling, flowers overflowing from your bouquet. Spring is naturally the best season to use fresh blooms in your décor. You can choose seasonal varieties to keep costs down (as much as possible) and indulge in a sensationally romantic ambiance.


Precious Flower Girls

There’s nothing cuter than a little flower girl in her princess-style dress, sporting a halo of tiny flowers in her hair! (Unless, of course, you tie a floral wreath around your dog and parade him/her down the aisle as the ring-bearer.) Flowers as adornments go back centuries, and this lovely little touch adds fairy-tale charm to your theme.


Beautiful Bridesmaids

Can this year’s floral gowns be any more romantic? We’re swooning over the incredible floral bridesmaids’ dresses popping up in spring weddings. You can mix and match pretty pastels and flower patterns for a coordinated yet stylish look that will be unique to your wedding.


Romantic Color Schemes

Soft pastels paint a picture of subtle elegance and feminine beauty. Serenity, blush, champagne, peach, nude, lavender, and sage are perfect for spring weddings. Add a pop of bold color such as marsala or navy for a striking effect, or go for a romantic watercolor look with mostly neutrals.


Amazing Bridal Florals

Spring is the time to indulge in flower accessories. Options abound for a stunningly romantic look: style your hair with a pretty floral halo, soft petal comb, golden metallic bloom, or sparkly rhinestone design. Consider pairing a veil embroidered with floral designs or edged with lace for a head-over-heels gorgeous ensemble.

Black Tie Attire
Obviously a black and white wedding should be a black tie affair. Your groom and his friends will look sharp in tuxedos (white or black).

Dazzling Dresses
A white or ivory bridal gown isn’t your only option. Slimming, sensual black gowns make a bold impression—whether you dress up your bridesmaids, don a LBD for the reception, or gracefully glide down the aisle in a tulle ball gown. Shimmering sequins in gold or silver also complement a glamorous black and white color scheme.

Sparkling Jewelry
Stunning bling is a must-have for any formal wedding. Fine tune your look with an elegant rhinestone jewelry set, vintage-inspired black drop earrings, or a warm gold accent like a bracelet or belt. If you’ve chosen a strapless gown, consider shoulder jewelry! Ideally, pick something you’d love to wear again for a special occasion.
