Mother’s Day special

6 May 2017
/ / /

Most of the time, families are very involved in weddings – some will even say too much! But there’s no denying parents and siblings can be a great help when it comes to putting together your wedding, especially mothers. Over the years, I have had the pleasure of of working with mothers of the bride on different occasions. For example, I remember this mother of the bride who ordered the wedding hair accessories for the whole bridal party! Or another mother of the bride who gave her own bridal headpiece (from her own wedding decades ago!) so we could use it to create new wedding hair accessories! And also, a mother of the groom who worked around the couple’s indications so her headpiece would reflect their favorite sports teams. How cute is all these stories?!

So with Mother’s Day coming up, I wanted to celebrate mothers – so why not kill two birds with one stone? You can now take advantage of a special promotion on our suggestions of wedding hair accessories for the mother of the bride (and groom!) with 25% off til the end of Mother’s Day! But hurry : quantities are limited!

Just use the code Mom2017 when ordering to get the special offer!

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.”

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!
