Wedding of Marie-Pier & Jean-François

11 February 2017
/ / /

We wrote an article about Marie-Pier’s wedding hair accessory, a Quebec bride who decided to unite in the South in 2016 (click here to read the article). And now we are lucky to have the picture of this beautiful wedding!

Why did the couple choose to have a destination wedding? The bride explains, “We wanted to celebrate our wedding longer with our guests and enjoy as many moments with them as possible. In addition to the desire to spend more time with their loved one, Marie-Pier mentions that she was looking for an alternative to a religious wedding: “A wedding at a church did not connect with us at all. We wanted something more symbolic, simple and family officiated by a member of the family.”

The bride and groom wanted something family-centered, natural and spontaneous. Nothing superfluous: simplicity was the word! Thus the couple created a wedding that reflected their personality, taking inspiration from the sea, with the wedding theme color white and fushia. That’s why we added fushia touches in the white feathers of her wedding hair accessory Catherine for the bride:

All weddings require a lot of organization, of course. But in the case of a destination wedding, the planning and preparation of the big day are complicated by the distance. In the case of Marie-Pier, she decided to hire a travelling agency in Quebec City that not only made the connection with the wedding planner at the destination, but also took care of the plane tickets and hotel reservations for the couple and the wedding guests!

The sand ceremony, that all the guests took part in, and the entrance with the family and the children are among the favorite moments of Marie-Pier. “To see the emotions on everyone’s faces as well as the groom was a magical moment in a magical place and a great setting!”

Marie-Pier’s advice to future brides? “This day belongs to you and it must suit your personality; do it as you want.” She recommends enjoying the preparations for the wedding, even if they are sometimes tedious: “It is part of the wedding experience. This day is a whirlwind of emotions that happens just too fast!”

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!

5 reasons to wear a wedding veil

16 October 2016
/ / /

We gave you 5 reasons to wear a wedding hair accessory to your wedding (click here to read the article!), so it’s only fair to do the same with wearing a bridal veil! Because after all about half of brides nowadays wear wedding veils : here’s (probably) why!

1) It is your wedding. You want to wear a veil? Wear a veil. Some may talk to you about the bad symbolism of it – but if you want it, who cares? Some will say you only wear it for the ceremony anyway… so? Don’t dress for others, dress for yourself : as simple as that!

2) You will have a full bridal look. Believe it or not, some brides never have that moment of finding The One when trying on a wedding dress – but once they had a wedding veil on their head, the die had been cast. Like a wedding hair accessory, a veil can be a great way to add style to a simple dress.

3) It will make great pictures. Let’s be honest : one of the biggest reasons for many, many brides to wear a veil is because it will make incredible pictures if it inspires your photographer (or even for a boudoir session!) Pinterest is filled with amazing images of the bride and groom with the veil in the wind while they kiss, or other pictures just as breathtaking.

4) You can create a tradition. Some families used to pass on wedding dresses from generation to generation, but trends change so much, not every wedding gown style are timeless and can be worn decades or even years from now. If you want to keep something for your daughter or niece to wear on their big day as well, keep your veil can be a great idea.

5) You can re-use it in different ways. Sure, it may not be as easy to reuse as a wedding hair accessory, since many can be worn as fashion hair piece. But you can use the fabric of your veil to create something you’ll be able to wear again, especially if it has beautiful details. For example we used the leftover fabric of the dress of a mother of the bride to embellish her headpiece (click here for pics!) – why not do the same with your veil! Not feeling so crafty? We got you covered : just get in touch with us to have some suggestions (include pics of your veil!) or to tell us your idea and we’ll see what we can do!

Still hesitating between a wedding hair accessory or a bridal veil? Remember that the choice is yours and shouldn’t be dictacted by another person, article or whatnot. When choosing your wedding veil or bridal headpiece, as with any other accessory of your bridal look, you have to consider the overall style you’re going for and see if it all comes toghether perfectly. And remember, in case of doubts, just ask us!

5 reasons to wear a bridal hair accessory on your wedding day

8 October 2016
/ / /

You’re in the middle of your wedding planning after the big proposal, you choose your bridesmaids, your venue – you even found The One (your wedding dress, that is). Now you’re thinking : bridal veil or wedding hair piece? There are so many great options out there, it’s difficult to choose isn’t it? Read this 5 reasons to wear a bridal hair accessory to see if it’s for you :

1) You will be original. While more and more brides are opting for wedding hair accessories other than a veil, even now it’s about 50/50. The big advantage with a headpiece or fascinator is that you have so many choices out there, you can find something trully original – we can even make a bespoke, unique design!

2) You will easily wear it for the entire day. A lot of brides ditch the veil after the ceremony and pictures because it’s heavy, because it’s difficult to get around the venue with a long veil and other reasons. But if you make sure to choose a hair accessory comfortable, you’ll be able to wear it for the entire day and throughout the night!
