Wedding Friendor: Solutions Bridal Designer House

by Andrea on Friday, April 14, 2017

Your wedding dress. It’s the foundation that we start at when we are designing your wedding. It helps us understand our brides style & personality, gives us an insight into the formality of the wedding and truly gets a gitty as we swoon over OUR favorite Wedding Detail.

Today we are featuring our friendors at Solutions Bridal Designer House.  This Bridal Boutique not only goes above and beyond for each and every client, they carry some of our favorite designers and offer a completely one of a kind experience for our clients. We are so thankful to be able to send our brides to experience all the beauty, fashion & fun Solutions offers.

Here are some important things to know about Solutions Bridal Designer House from Jamie, Solutions very own Bridal Fashion Blogger and Stylist: 

What are the lines you carry in the store? 

Ines Di Santo, Oscar de la Renta, Rivini, Anna Maier, Suzanne Neville, Lela Rose, Alyne by Rivini, Monique Lhuillier Bliss, Marisa Bridal, and Jim Hjelm.

 

What is the biggest trend or look your being asked for?

Brides are loving illusion! The illusion is such an amazing detail because it creates an “invisible” look. Aside from the lace and beaded details on the illusion, it also helps a bride through support because it has the additional fabric to help fit the bride really well.
How can a bride prepare for her initial wedding consultation? 
I would advise every bride to arrive at her bridal appointment with an open mind. An open mind to different styles of gowns as well as being open to finding the dress and saying “yes”. A bride never knows when she is going to have her moment when she finds the perfect wedding dress and says “yes!”

What’ makes the experience at your store unique to the bride?
The Solutions Bridal experience is equivalent to flying first class. From a celebratory champagne toast to providing undergarments and heels for each appointment, we are truly are full-service styling. Each bride also works with an experienced bridal stylist who will work with her from the day she shopped in the salon to the day she walks down the aisle.
This is my  4th year in bridal, so my favorite gown changes all the time for different reasons. However, currently, I am loving traditional wedding gowns. Manye by Ines Di Santo (Andrea’s wedding gown) is my favorite. Manye’s French Alencon lace paired with her fit is the perfect amount of sexy. It shows off a bride’s curves without exposing too much skin.

Tips: Bridesmaids Gifts

by Andrea on Thursday, February 16, 2017

So the time has come….you are about to get married! You have everything you can possibly think of planned for your masterpiece of a wedding. But then you remember one important thing, YOUR BRIDESMAIDS!  Where would you be without them?! They have done everything for you…help plan your shower, keep you calm when you are having a meltdown, dress fittings, been a shoulder to cry on, make you laugh, and took you on the best bachelorette trip you could have wished for! Now, it is your time to repay them for all the love they have shown you through the hectic wedding planning!

It is so nice to give them something meaningful and that they can use again. I mean what doesn’t say I appreciate you more than a customized item. Every time they use it they can think of the wedding they got to play a huge part in.

One great gift that every girl loves is a beautiful robe. They are great for pre wedding pictures when everyone is getting ready. They are also great for future girls night in, popping a bottle of champs and reliving all the funny things that happened during the wedding night. We all know every bridal party has some funny stories to share!

Want to do something different? How cute is it to give your bridal party matching outfits? Stick with a neutral pallet and something classic that the girls can enjoy wearing many times. We had a past bride give a chambray shirts with leggings. It was such a cute idea and something we don’t see much!

Some other great ideas that every bridesmaid would love is a great bottle of perfume. Its great to give so they can spritz themselves throughout the wedding, but also smell great for months after! Whenever someone ask them what perfume they are wearing, they will automatically think of you and your wedding…we hope!

When in doubt just get wine. Think about it, what girl doesn’t enjoy a nice bottle of wine…and you can always add a customized wine glass for a nice touch! Jewelry also always wins a girls heart.  A beautiful monogramed necklace, bracelet, or earrings are always a winner when it comes to a gift.

When it comes to planning a wedding there are so many details that can get overlooked. Don’t forget the most important girls that have been there for you through thick and thin! Let them know how much you appreciate them not just with gifts but with love. Remember, if you have happy bridesmaids, you will be a happy bride!
