Ready To Wed 

I’m thrilled to announce our first official Ready To Wed short wedding dress collection! We have always had a few short dresses here and there, but now you can expect to see a whole collection. I am in love with all of these dresses and can cannot wait to wear them on anniversaries to come! The dresses are nicely fitted and have unique lace patterns as well as modern lengths. 

My recommendations: I recommend wearing these dresses for a rehearsal dinner, reception, casual second wedding, or a vow renewal! 

Alon Livne White 

On Friday we received an edited collection of Alon Livne’s white collection. Alon is famous for creating many celebrity gowns for Beyonce, Paris Hilton, Kendall Jenner, and Lady Gaga. Now brides visiting or living in Orlando can try on the white collection from Alon Livne which offers red carpet style wedding dresses. They are far from the typical wedding dress. They do offer more modesty than the typical belly showing Israeli designers; however, they still have the allure of today’s style. 

My recommendations: Alon Livne is not for every bride; nor does he try to be. The dresses are for a confident bride that wants to show her figure. They are an appropriate fit for a destination wedding or a beautiful reception dress!

With New York Bridal Fashion Week here, I have to share a few of my favorite must haves for your purse! 
1.) Journal. I journal all day. Whenever an idea comes to mind I just jot it down. A journal is good for fashion week because you will see tons of beautiful dresses. Writing down differences in each dress whether it is fabric, style, or designer it could help you remember each dress individually. 
2,) Hollywood Fashion Tape. Fashion Tape is an amazing product. At Solutions Bridal, we not only sell this product but are avid users! I personally use fashion tape if I am wearing a flowy top but the fabric wont stay in place. 
3.) Jimmy Choo by Jimmy Choo perfume.  Walking around the city can become very hot and sweaty! Not only will you look fabulous, but you can stay smelling fresh and clean!
4.) Still Standing Spray. EVERYONE needs this product. Just like Hollywood Fashion Tape , we sell this product at Solutions Bridal. We discovered this product at New York Bridal Fashion week last year at a fashion show!How to use product: After wearing your gorgeous yet uncomfortable pumps for a few hours your feet start to hurt! Still Standing Spray calls feet pain “stiletto suffering.” However, there is always a solution! Spray your barefoot with the product and within a couple of minutes your pain is gone and back on your fabulous way you go! Still standing spray is a safe product. Arnica and Aloe are the main ingredients! 
5. MAC Lipstick in “Dark Side”. Fall is the best time of the year to go bold with a dark lip. During fall, you can go day to night with a dark lip. During the day, go with a champagne eye lid and peach blush. For night, go with a shimmery slightly darker champagne shadow and some liquid eye liner! 
6. Orbit Spearmint gum. To put it simply enough, “clean it up!”
7. Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray. Other than makeup primer, setting pray is such an amazing tool. During fashion week, days can very long! Setting spray keeps your foundation and eye shadow on all day and night! Just close your eyes, keep the bottle about 2 feet away and spray!
8. Sunglasses. Sunnies aren’t only for blocking out UV rays, but looking and feeling fabulous. 
9. Fiber One Bar. Between fashion shows and buying appointments you become very hungy! Fiber One bars are full of protein and fibers to keep you full!
10. Hand sanitizer. As much as I love the city, it can be very dirty! Fight germs but stay stylish!
11. Solutions Bridal Sweat for the Dress bottle. Solutions Bridal sells these amazing water bottles. Stay hydrated and eco-friendly with our bottle! 

I hope these items help with your next trip! We will be posting behind the scenes photos on our instagram (@solutionsbridal) and here soon!
Stay Fabulous.

Styling Your Dress with a Short Veil

When it comes to selecting accessories, the options are endless. I recommend finding your accessories early on since it can be overwhelming making these decisions when you are closer to your wedding.

All of our veils here at Solutions Bridal can come in any length you desire. After you decide on your length, you may select your trim. There is beaded trim, lace trim, ribbon trim, and cut edge. Once you decided on your dress, finding your veil is the next step. 

Here are the basics on short veils (in order of photos):

Cage Face Veil: a veil that frames the face in a cage shape. They are made out of French net (like the one above) or can be made out of tulle for softer look. The cage face veil became a trend again after Reese Witherspoon wore a cage veil in the movie Sweet Home Alabama. The veil may extend just past the eyes or cover the whole face. 

My Recommendation: A cage face veil is a statement. Pair it with a sleek modern mermaid dress or a vintage lace dress. If you go with a cage face veil, go all the way and pair it with a bold lip and a soft feather in the hair. 

Cut-Edge Elbow Veil: a simple veil that ends at the elbow and has no trim detail. Of course you can always add trim detail to a veil like this. This veil is elegant, timeless, and a great option if you are not sure if you want to wear a veil at all.

My Recommendations: pair this with a dramatic back. It wouldn’t take away from the detail and will just add more attention to your back area. 

Juliet Veil: also referred to as a circular cut veil. The comb is placed in the middle of the tulle to create a clean line. There is no gather at a the comb. Jessica Simpson  just wore a Juliet cut veil on her wedding day. The photos were captured by Elizabeth Messina. 

My Recommendations: this is my favorite veil! Its a tear jerker! If you have a beautiful neckline on your dress, go with this veil. Also, it is very appropriate for a traditional wedding since one layer of the veil goes over your face as you walk down the aisle. 

Two - Tier Soutache Veil: a double layered veil with a narrow decorative braided trim. This is a classic “cake topper” veil. The one photographed is finger tip length; however, can be made to any length you wish. 

My Recommendations: this veil is for veil lovers. I recommend pairing this veil with a simple wedding dress since there is so much fullness. Also, have one tier placed on velcro so you can remove a tier for your first dance. Two looks in one! 

Stay tuned for my future post on lace veils! 

Love, Tali
