Your wedding is the most romantic day of your life. Valentine’s Day, anniversaries, and birthdays just don’t encompass the same life-changing excitement and romantic allure as a wedding. And, as an adult, you probably won’t wear an extravagant, gorgeous gown with lavish accessories on any other day! In short, your wedding is a unique opportunity to honor your love in an unabashedly romantic way.

Nothing expresses love quite like lace. Elegant, backed by hundreds of years of tradition, and timelessly gorgeous, this classic bridal material provides a look of feminine grace. Our V7175 Alençon lace veil infuses any bridal wardrobe with classic elegance. Ornate beading weaves through a gorgeous pattern of regal flowers with breathtaking romance.

The symbol of bridal beauty, this exquisite scalloped Alençon lace mantilla sweeps over your locks with Old World grace. A waltz-length veil featuring generous Alençon lace, V7175 evokes a mood of romantic beauty.

Match Me
Ideally, you should match V7175 with a lace gown. If you are wearing a dress made from another material but love the idea of a lace-trimmed veil, be sure to choose lace accessories! For example, we highly recommend pairing V7175 with its sister headpiece, style 6456. Fall in love with an elaborate, embroidered lace and pearl floral headpiece blooming with classic beauty. Attached to an easy-wear clip, this lovely headpiece wraps your wedding-day hair with sprawling bridal flowers and leaves to complement a lace gown and pearl accessories.

It also works well for any season of wedding. Whether you’re getting married in a church or on the beach, you’ll look stunning.

Sparkle Style: What Your Ring Says About You

(Bel Aire Bridal – Style V7266)

Are you dreaming of a sparkly Christmas?
According to a recent poll by Brides magazine, about 51 percent of brides are involved in choosing their engagement rings. Whether the rock is a complete surprise or you show him exactly what you want on that special finger, we hope that you receive a design you absolutely love. After all, you’ll be wearing it for the rest of your life!
When it comes to diamonds (still the most popular stone for engagement rings), the four C’s reign supreme. Clarity, color, carat, and cut play into how expensive your bling will be. We’re going to focus on the cut of your gorgeous stone—which comes in a dazzling array of choices—and what each shape says about your personality!

Cushion Cut – Modern, Trendy, Fabulous
Also known as a “pillow cut” or “candlelight diamond,” a cushion cut stone looks like a square with rounded corners. Sparkling like crushed ice, this cut has enjoyed recent popularity with brides who want something slightly more modern than a round diamond—though this style has been around for over 200 years! Usually set as a solitaire or halo, the cushion cut embraces any band with dazzling radiance. Cushion brides lean towards runway trends such as plunging necklines, embellished backs, snazzy silhouettes, and celebrity styles. You are modern and not afraid to shine!

Heart Shape – Sentimental, Romantic, Feminine
If you’re a fairy-tale bride, a heart-shaped ring may be in your stars! This sweet shape evokes a theme of true love; you are marrying your soul mate. Pairing this enchanting stone with an engraved band will personalize your engagement ring. Only the true romantic chooses a heart and keeps it with her always. Heart brides lean towards lavish lace, extravagant floral arrangements, feminine colors like blush or champagne, and intimate wedding details. You are in love with love!

Emerald – Confident, Powerful, Sleek
Utterly chic, an emerald cut evokes minimalist beauty. The confident, no-fuss bride with a penchant for shine prefers this clean look. Free from distractions and crafted with narrow, long facets, the emerald cut is best if you prefer pure elegance. Due to its shape, jewelers often need higher grade clarity diamonds to create this cut (making it more expensive). Emerald brides are attracted to sheath gowns and simple, elegant details. You already know you’re fabulous.

Round – Classic, Traditional, Sparkly
If you love sparkle, choose a round brilliant stone! With 58 facets and the most brilliance of any cut, a round stone will make everyone stare at your hand. This cut looks amazing accented with a pavé band, halo setting, or raised solitaire. Classic yet popular, a round stone is the best choice if you’re unsure of what you like or want something that will stay in style. Round cut brides are modern yet classy, leaning towards popular wedding trends and flattering styles.

Marquise – Alternative, Free-Spirited, Artistic
If you like to stand out from the crowd, a marquise diamond is right up your alley. Unique as the bride who wears it, this stone is shaped like a tiny boat and has a slimming effect. This brilliant, elongated cut marries a look of courtly elegance with creative appeal.Marquise brides go for non-traditional gowns and quirky accents.

Princess – Trendy, Modern, Romantic
Combining classic sparkle with an edgy shape, the princess cut looks square (sometimes slightly rectangle) with the most brilliance and fire of any non-round cut. One of the most popular choices for engagement rings, princess diamonds add artistic beauty to any setting. Princess brides stray only slightly from the beaten path, enjoying classy but modern gowns, trendy accessories, and just a few romantic touches. You’re willing to bend tradition and personalize your wedding!
