Hair Adornments & Veil Choices

After searching for your wedding dress, there is only one more item that could possibly complete the bridal look- your headpiece! There are many different kinds, all of which can compliment the dress!

You could choose a tiara, and look like a princess on your wedding day, complete with a stylish hairstyle, or you could get a fun and flirty comb. Combs can come with hair adornments such as crystals or feathers, all of which look great with wedding gowns.

Another great headpiece idea is to purchase a bridal cap. Bridal caps are very glamorous, and exude class. They only look good with the right  gown so keep this in mind while gown shopping, if you have your heart set on a bridal cap.

Fascinators can also be used, and have been wildly popular since Kate Middleton wed Prince William in 2011. Fascinators can range in price, and can be very intricate. They are very visually appealing, and can be the right addition to your bridal look!

When choosing your headpiece, keep in mind if it will look right with your wedding gown. Take a picture of your wedding gown along with you, or purchase it when you go gown shopping. Take your purchased headpiece along with you when going to your hair appointment so that your stylist can play with it in your hair!

A Most Important Job…

Amongst all the stress of planning your wedding day, you have two very important members of your bridal party just itching to sprint down the aisle. Keep in mind the flowergirl and ringbearers have a very important job in your wedding day: the keeper of the “rings” and to make way for the bride by use of flower petals.

This precious flower girl dress has a floor length skirt of lace and pleated organza ruffles. Many bridal gowns have the same features and now we’ve got the flower girl dress to match! As always, the ribbon sash can be ordered in a variety of colors. Swing by to take a closer look at it! Premier Bride's Perfcet Dress

Your flower girl will no doubt be adorable, so consider her dressing the part. Try to find a mini dress to accompany yours, or have one made. It’s always adorable to see the bride and flowergirl in their matching attire. You might consider giving her an unconventional bag instead of the basket that is a more traditonal option.

The ringbearer always looks daper in his mini tuxedo, just make sure he matches the groom to a tee. If the groom has suspenders, have the ringbearer get them too. A little fedora hat also goes a long way. You can certainly still use a pillow with fake rings, but consider something a little more updated like the ringbearer carrying a sign saying “Here comes the bride!” This is really sweet and can be used for great pictures.

 We have so much fun when the adorable Flower Girl dresses start to arrive. They’re just so cute! This is a new arrival from Jordan, shown in White and Light Pink. It has a satin bodice with a keyhole back and satin waistband. The tulle tutu skirt also has contrasting accents along the edge. This dress is available in any combination of 2 of the 75 colors Jordan offers. Lots of options with this one! http://www.fresnobridalsalon.com/

Your guests want to see the adorable ringbearer and flowergirls antics, so be ready for the comedy hour. Make sure that you put their parents in strategic places in the seating, so that if they do get a little rowdy, they can get them quickly.

They met in a kissing booth at an art school carnival. after graduating from cranbrook academy with MFAs in sculpture and printmaking, and began collaborating by making gifts for friends. over time their creative partnership has developed into multiple projects including: something’s hiding in here, the original mustache on a stick, seed house stationers, and forage haberdashery.

Their very first bow ties were made in the summer of 2010. the name FORAGE comes from our love of hunting for vintage and deadstock fabrics, which keeps their creative process fresh. each collection is hand crafted in limited numbers using cotton fabrics. their packaging is made in the US with recycled materials and hand printed by them.

We invite you to check out Kat and Eric’s Wedding Highlights from MVP Weddings HERE. We also encourage you to check out their BLOG as well.

ABOUT MVP WEDDINGS

Shortly after we were married in 2003 we began creating wedding videos for other couples. 8 years later I (Matt) am the primary cinematographer and editor while my wife (Susan) adds art, class and style to our wedding videos from a bride’s perspective. I (Matt) have also put on a few pounds since then 🙂

We are the owners of MVP Weddings and we partner with other talented cinematographers to create beautiful, cinematic wedding videos and provide a wonderful customer experience for couples. We lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for 13 years and moved to Fresno, CA in the summer of 2011 to be closer to our family. We would be delighted to create a beautiful wedding video with the art of cinema that tells your story. Thank you very much for considering our videography service, and may God bless you and your very special relationship of love and commitment in marriage.

Sincerely,

Matt and Susan Martin
