Tips to order your wedding hair accessories

7 March 2017
/ / /

Can you feel it in the air? It’s wedding season on the horizon, coming soon as the days get warmer and longuer!

Which means that bides-to-be will have even more details to think of and will (sadly) become more and more stressed. (Click here to read tips to minimize the pre-wedding stress!) Wedding hair accessories, for yourself and for your bridesmaids, are often something left for the end of the wedding preparations. Don’t! Of course everyone will look at the wedding dress, but everybody will look at you and especially your face during the wedding ceremony and reception, so your bridal hair accessories are very important! Once you have chosen your wedding gown, there is no reason to wait to choose your wedding veil and/or bridal headpiece!

Here are some few tips to help you order your wedding hair accessories so you have exactly what you want for your wedding day without any fuss!

Have few trusted opinions to guide you

In case of doubt, ask questions. Have few trusted opinions around you who can guide you about the overall look you want for your bridal outfit. You can hire a professional stylist to help you with your bridal look or ask your wedding planner, if you have one. Your loved ones can be of great help too, but don’t ask too many people because too much opinions and advices can leave you more confused than anything else. As for your wedding gown, carefully choose few people who understand your style and who will be honest with you. Friends and relatives who got married can be of great help too.

 Still unsure? Contact me. I know some brides have had bad experiences in bridal stores, with vendors trying to pressure them into buying a wedding dress and all the bridal accessories they could think of. Don’t worry, you can always ask me my opinion and you can be sure of an honest answer without any pressure! It can be a great opportunity to discuss together as well if, say, you want to customize your Capelio wedding hair piece!

Order at least a month before your wedding day 

… or even better, as soon as you know your wedding dress! I’m starting to receive enquiries and orders for weddings taking place… later this month. While in many case it’s not a problem, as early as possible is always the best. Not only for you (and for me!) it’s something not to stress about, it means you’ll have your wedding veil and/or bridal headpiece for the trials with your hairdresser.

Not gonna lie, I much prefer to have all the time in the world to create your wedding hair accessory with love and care than to feel rushed and stressed so it can be shipped as fast as possible! Also, ordering your wedding hair piece at more or less the last-minute means it may restrict your choices of bridal accessories since sometimes I need to order material from abroad. In case of doubt, just get in touch!

Check your messages!

Your Capelio wedding hair piece will be created just for you, so I’m probably going to send you pictures at each step of the process to make sure you LOVE your bridal accessory. Make sure you often check your messages so you can answer quickly, both for your approval but also if I have a question or other. While I know you have lots of things to think about – a wedding is A LOT of details, after all! – it’s very important for me your love your Capelio headpiece.

Anything else?

You know better than anyone the wedding you are putting together to reflect your love story and your personnality. Whether you have a question or about the infos of your wedding (date, setting, venue, etc.) you never tell too much information. Never be afraid to get in touch with me!

.

And now, a little gift for the early birds!

We’re offering 15 % off to the brides who order their wedding hair accessories before the end of March for weddings scheduled for May and after!

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!

A new week, a new photoshoot to take part in! In fact, this time, the planning and coordinating of said wedding photography session was the work of Mélanie Vallerand, photographer and wedding coordinator in Quebec City. A team of Quebec wedding professionals gathered together for this wonderful creative wedding photography session and, of course, Capelio was there!

Our Anastasia lace headpiece with birdcage veil was used for the first look, and the second was with our Simplicity veil in an ivory version. It is both a pleasure and a pride to lend our creations for a wedding photoshoot with so many talented people sensitive to the slightest detail!

I’m so excited to see the final photos, but we’ll have to wait until December! Some lucky people may have already seen the preview shots that were published on Facebook and I guess you know the result will be breathtaking. For the others, here’s a preview :

Fashion hair accessories at the Morrin Center

7 November 2016
/ / /

Yesterday we made the photoshoot for Capelio’s next fashion collection!

To organize a photoshoot for a new collection is always tedious: you want to surround yourself with the best people who understand your vision and who you can trust, you want to create an atmosphere that reflects the artistic direction of the collection and of course, you want to create breathtaking  photos that will inspire your clients. The process often involves many questiones you ask yourself, with a lot of stress and emotions, especially when you’re a perfectionist. In fact, a designer recently told me that just before her own photoshoot for her new collection, she felt none of her clothes were up to what she had envisonned because of the stress. So it’s not just me then!

But in the end everything went well, largely thanks to the talented people involved who all did a masterful job. So it’s really important for me to thank them properly here :

Angela Baughman and Olivia Eadie of Castle Coiffure;

Simon Trudeau, filmmaker;

Yvon Latulippe, photographer;

Camille Lavoie, makeup;

The models Audrey, Rebekah, Emilie and Charo;

Manon Fortin of the Morrin Center;

And finally Sonia Plourde, designer, for lending us her amazing clothes!

I thank them all from the heart for their incredible commitment, their immense talent and their great cherfulness! Not only did we all worked together to make beautiful photos, the day was also incredibly fun!

The wait until May 2017, when the collection will be launched, will be difficult… But you’ll get a chance to see few previews here and there on our Facebook page, as well as a special Instagram account created especially for the collection : @murdermysterycollection Make sure you also subscribed to our newsletter so you don’t miss anything :
