Hey there, princess, check this out: If you’re down with the crown thing (pretty much the hottest trend going in bridal hair accessories for 2018 weddings), we’ve got a handful of seriously regal headpieces we think you’re gonna like. Enjoy…and visit these fine Houston salons for even more bridal crown and bridal tiara styles!
Your b’maids do so much sweet stuff for you. Here’s something sweet you can do for them: Gift them with bridesmaids bags they’ll clutch with joy on your wedding day, and use, with fond memories, and a ton of style, long after. Here are a handful of our faves!
So soft. So pink. So…FREAKIN ADORABLE. Lulu’s pink crushed velvet clutch tops our list of bags we’d like to have and to hold. The magnetic front closure and zip top mean this hip-and-girly b’maid bag will keep your gals’ wedding-day essentials safe. Carry as a clutch or attach the 48-inch gold chain strap that accompanies this totally versatile bridesmaids bag.
San Francisco-based designer Mary Frances created this beaded bag in homage to the vibrancy and diversity of the city where she grew up. And what a pretty city bag it is! Your bridesmaids can use the Femme Pouch as a makeup bag or mini-clutch, both on your big day, and on any date night, girls’ night or night on the town!
Neiman’s demure pouch is such a perfect combo of preppy crispness and cosmoplitan chic, with its natural fiber construction and funky metallic tassel. Personalize your bridesmaids’ pouches with their initials for an extra-special touch.
Add a pop of glorious color and a fun floral motif to your wedding-party style, with Banana Republic’s vibrant flat-zip pouch. Your gals can carry it as a clutch on your big day, and use it to keep things organized inside a larger bag, at work or at play!
J. Crew is our go-to for simple sophistication–and their metallic leather pouch is no exception. This luscious Italian leather mini-bag is pretty enough to use as a wedding-day clutch, and practical enough to use as an understated evening bag or inside-the-tote cosmetics pouch any and every day. Bonus: It can be monogrammed with your bridesmaids’ initials or something fun, like LOL, BRB, ETC and more.
We close out this post with yet another HWB darling: Aldo’s swank Cipressi. We can’t get enough of this spotlight-grabbing box clutch, with its lucite gleam, floating faux pearls and pale gold hardware. Show your bridesmaids how much you appreciate their dedication and generosity by gifting each girl with her own Cipressi; she’ll love you even more than she does now (if that’s even possible!).
1.) Boho Braid. French, Dutch, fishtail or a combo of techniques…whichever you choose for your wedding-day look, braided bridal hairstyles are so on trend. Natural hair not quite long enough to rock braided locks for your big day? Azur Salon at West Ave has the solution for that! Natural or…helped out a bit…wear your long bridal braid swept to the side, and pair it with a textured drop or modern ear-crawler for maximum cool.
2. Messy Updo. Part classic chignon, part sexy tousle, the slightly undone updo is a lovely bridal hairstyle choice for medium to long locks. Because this style already has a lot of texture and movement, you don’t want to add more with super-elaborate chandelier earrings or oversize stones. Instead, opt for an elegant piece of hair jewelry, and dress your lobes with delicate pearl-and-diamond drops or studs.
3. Half Up, Half Down. It’s a style compromise…in the most beautiful way! The half-updo takes your hair out of your face, but also allows for flow and movement. It’s both demure and dramatic, and it’s the perfect bridal hairstyle to frame your pretty face, and showcase a larger, sophisticated bridal earring style.
