Wedding dresses & hair accessories 2017

18 February 2017
/ / /

After we launched our 2017 wedding hair accessories collection, a French-Canadian blogger, Emma of M.A. The Girly Girl, wrote an interesting article matching her favorite bridal headpieces, flower crowns & veils with wedding dresses (click here for the article – only in French though!)

I liked it so much, it gave me the idea to do something similar to inspire brides-to-be! I asked Caroline Jarry, the amazing stylist who we interviewed for our post on how to wear a wedding hair accessory with short hair, to pair wedding gowns with her favorite Capelio wedding hair accessories!

I selected two fellow Canadian designers selling on Etsy to illustrate the wedding gowns popular trends of 2017. Here’s the result!

 

The two-piece wedding dress

Who hasn’t seen crop top in the street in recent years? This trend is ultra-popular with fashionistas, so it was only a matter of time before this look was also available for the bride. There are plenty of great two-pieces wedding gowns for the bride on Pinterest, which is stylish while being totally different from the traditional wedding dress.

Caroline’s choices 

The Marianna flower crown : I like the more “present” side of this flower crown- it works as well with the classic side of the skirt and more modern top”

The Petals bridal headband : “This bridal headband is also perfect for this wedding dress, if we prefer to leave the spotlight to the wedding gown.”

The wedding dress with cut-off

More and more brides want to be not only gorgeous on their wedding day, but also sexy as well. Hence the trend of wedding dresses with cut-off patterns that has emerged in recent years.  It’s easy to find beautiful wedding gowns that are both sophisticated while having a sexy allure to them by showing a little bit of skin here and there!

Caroline’s choices 

The Anna Alexandra wedding hair comb : “This subtle wedding hair comb enhances the godess-like style of this dress”

The one-of-a-kind red flower crown : “This flower wreath not only complete well the wedding gown, it also brings a touch of color to break with the classic ”all in white”…!”

 .

The modern-princess wedding dress

Many future brides want a wedding day that will unfold like a fairy tale and feeling like a princess on their big day is a big part of it! Nowadays we can forget the bridal look of an oversized skirt on a corset, a strong trend for decades. Now we use modern details to play with this theme, so you can feel like royalty but with a trendy look!

Caroline’s choices 

The Cosmo flower wreath : ”I love the bucolic details of the dress and to put these forward I think this delicate flower crown is perfect!”

The Luna double wedding veil : “With such a romantic wedding gown, you can opt for a veil, in this case the Luna bridal veil since, thanks to its perfect proportions, it completes the dress without adding too much details”

.

.

The classic wedding gown

Nothing beats a simple, classic wedding dress that you may even be able to reuse for a special occasion or to pass on to a young woman in your family in the future. You can find beautiful dresses with a classic cut but with a touch of originality : a bust with sequin, an interesting lace pattern, etc.

The Marie-Helen birdcage veil : “With this subtle and classic wedding dress, this delicate birdcage veil enhanced by the jewelry piece, will be just perfect!”

The Ireland bridal fascinator : “Don’t hesitate to wear this wedding headpiece delicately placed on a messy bun or even on loose hair : with the wedding gown, your shoulders will be perfectly highlighted.”

Wedding hair accessories for the bride and bridesmaids

4 February 2017
/ / /

Capelio's collections of wedding hair accessories are not only for brides: our fascinators, headpieces, flower crowns and barrettes are also created with the idea to offer a vast selection for the bridesmaids, the flower girl and the mother of the bride. In fact, you can find in our wedding hair accessories availables various designs that can be matched together by the bride and her bridesmaids to create a visual harmony and a continuity with their wedding outfits.

Here are some suggestions for brides who would like to mix and match the wedding hair accessories of their bridesmaid to theirs - psst, you can also offer them their hair accessory as a thank-you gift to kill two birds with one stone!

Baby’s breath flowers

We already had in our Etsy store a duo of white flowers, with our Gabriella flower crown and some Abby white flowers hair barrettes as a package for the bride. But our Anna Rosa babys breath flower crown is so popular, not to mention everyone loves baby's breath flower, it was only a given that we would create flower hair accessories to go with the flower wreath. Thus how we added the Anita baby's breath flowers combs to our 2017 wedding hair accessories collection!

Therefore now you have the Anna Rosa baby's breath flower crown that you can wear with a veil (a package is available on Etsy of both or we can add the veil directly on the flower crown) or you can wear it on its own. For the bridesmaids, you can order few Anita mini-combs of 4 cm-long with baby's breath flowers. And there you go!

Traditional & birdcage veils

Birdcage veils have been very popular in recent years, but still about half of brides opt for the traditional bridal veil. So we creates two headpieces for the bride using both a birdcage veil and the traditional wedding veil. Last year we created our Vienna bridal headpiece and this year we have included in our collection the Duo headdress.

As the Vienna veil was a popular design last year, we thought to offer a wedding hair accessory with the same inspiration that could be worn by the bridesmaids and other members of the bridal, or by the bride during the reception, for example. Thus the Simone headband was created, made with tulle like a traditional veil as well as with birdcage veil. It's perfect for the bride who wears the Vienna or the Duo headpieces and wants to offer a thank-you gift to her bridesmaids that they will also wear on the wedidng day!

Fabric flowers

Flowers : a must-have detail for any wedding! We see it in the bouquet (of course!) but also in the decoration, in the centerpieces, and much more. No wonder so many brides incorporate them as well in their wedding outfits!

We created our Bloom veil for the bride not only with handmade fabric flowers on a hair clip but also with petals that seem to fly on the veil. The bride wearing this veil will now have the possibility of having her bridesmaids wear at the same time the Petals headband which, as its name indicates, is composed of fabric petals. The pearls among the petals match the centers of the fabric flowers of the Bloom veils, also with pearls.

The Bows

Another very popular detail after the flowers, bows are included in the theme of many weddings. We had created the Chantale birdcage veil on a headband with a fabric bow first for a specific bride of the same name as a bespoke wedding hair accessory - her gorgeous wedding gown had three bows in the back. We loved the result so much that it was later included in our regular wedding collection.

It is however by pure coincidence, while working with the wedding hair accessories of our 2017 collection, that we came up with the Clara bow headpiece. The crin gave it an interesting shape, but it lacked a little something... We add a little bit of birdcage veil, and voila! A wedding headpiece that is original, while staying girly and fun to wear!

The two combine perfectly: the Chantale veil for the bride and the Clara bow hair clip for the bridesmaids!

Wedding photography at Morrin Center

I don’t know about you, but I love wedding photography and I love the Morrin Center! Having organized the photoshoot for our 2017 fashion collection, Murder Mystery, in this superb venue reminded me of the magnificent wedding photos made at the Morrin Center for the magazine Mariage Québec some time ago. Our Anastasia birdcage veil for the bride (the same used for the vintage rustic wedding pictures) accessorized the bride’s beautiful wedding gown.

I had made an article about the publication of the photos in the magazine, but here are some extra photos to inspire you, future brides!

Wedding trend : Rustic chic weddings

17 December 2016
/ / /

Last week you saw the amazing pictures of our previous photoshoot for a vintage rustic wedding, which is an original twost on this ultra-popular and much-used concept. A vintage and a rustic vibes go easily together so to inspire you even more, what do you think of a rustic ambiance paired with… a chic atmoshpere?

Most of the time  we would not think of pairing these two themes together, and yet : Mélanie did it splendidly well for our photoshoot, mixing the talent of the many talented wedding professionals (see the list of everyone involved after the photos) and the result is amazing! After all a wedding, like a couple, is the amalgam of many different influences, compromises and tastes: what better way to demonstrate it than an environment in an urban and kitsch restaurant, with a chic and elegant wedding decoration?

.

The look of the bride

The bride wore a dress of a Quebec designer whom I particularly like, Sonia P. Mélanie styled the wedding gown with our Simplicity bridal veil on comb. The veil brought a traditional and high-end vibe, while the dress offered a touch that was both original and friendly without losing any of its elegance. Perfect for our theme!

Removable birdcage veil and bridal headpiece

3 December 2016
/ / /

Those who were tempted by the wedding headpiece with birdcage veil similar to the one worn by Esmeralda on her wedding day, offered in the ”one-of-a-kind accessories” section of our Etsy shop, will be disappointed to learn that a bride has jumped on the opportunity to be able to wear it at her own wedding in January! Unfortunately, it was the only one available… but for other brides, you can still look at the wedding hair accessories still available in our Etsy store, including the one-of-a-kind accessories still available, or even contact us for a bespoke headdress! Also, it’s worth mentioning that our January bride asked for personalized details that could inspire you.

Indeed, not really loving the tulle behind the feathers of Esmeralda’s hair piece, we decided to put behind the curly feathers a piece of birdcage veil. You’re probably thinking, a piece of birdcage veil on top of the veil of the headpiece? But our bride had a great idea: having the birdcage veil to be worn over her face on a hair clip as a separate piece :

This way, she can easily remove the veil after the ceremony and wear only the headpiece. A good idea, considering that many brides remove their veil after the ceremony before the reception. A nice example of customization that could also apply to you?

Browse our Etsy store and don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss the details of your wedding hair accessory you would like to adapt or modify. Check out the ”one-of-a-kind” accessories and be quick : once they’re gone, they’re gone forever! Keep an eye on this section, new accessories will be added regularly!
