Stunner Thursday: Short Hair Bridal Styling

Today’s Stunner Thursday is focused on short hair wedding looks. So many bridal hair style features center in on long haired brides with elaborate updos, leaving short haired brides to hunt high and low for complementary styles and accessories and even prompting some to spend the time of their engagement to the day of the wedding growing out their short locks. Well, in my opinion, short haired brides shouldn’t feel shortchanged when it comes to their wedding looks. Here are a few short hair bridal looks that I hope leave my short haired readers with the confidence to create a wedding day style all their own without extensions or the “fun” of months of growing out their dos.

Etsy Virtual Bridal Show: Day 3, Shoes

Shoes glorious shoes!

Welcome to the Second Annual Etsy Virtual Bridal Show! Over the coming weeks, the Etsy Virtual Bridal Show Team will present the best of their handmade and vintage wares that are sure to give your wedding a unique and personal touch. Today’s shops feature fabulous shoes that glitter, sparkle, and shine.

Speaking of glitter, sparkle and shine…check out these gorgeous earrings from Tatty Chic that could be yours!

Wouldn’t they set off a pair of sparkly shoes clips or glittered heels? “Tatty Chic is a collection of jewelery and accessories inspired by romance and all things feminine. Each piece of jewellery is designed and created lovingly by myself using pretty vintage and new trinkets and treasures which I collect from around the world, the end result being a delicate and romantic, one of a kind piece of jewelery you will want to treasure.” To enter, peruse Tatty Chic’s shop and pick your favorite piece. Post your fave in the comments section and that’s it. UPDATE: We have decided that all giveaways will have a deadline extension to the end of show on April 21st!

I began the Etsy Virtual Bridal Show last year to support individual artisans and vendors and to provide couples with alternatives to the mass produced wedding finds out there is traditional stores. The bridal world is evolving and growing away from the expected and moving toward individual craftsmanship and DIY touches. What’s great about Etsy is that you too can have a handmade look to your wedding without sacrificing your fingerprints to your hot glue gun.

In addition to helping individually owned shops, I wanted to bring awareness to my chosen charity: Wish Upon A Wedding. “Wish Upon a Wedding is a nonprofit 501 (c) (3) organization that provides weddings and vow renewals to couples facing terminal illness or other serious life-altering circumstances, regardless of sexual orientation. Often, couples facing such situations do not have the energy, time, money, or resources needed to plan their wedding. Our organization takes care of all the details, offering couples a chance to relax and enjoy a very special day while surrounded by the love of their closest family and friends.” -www.wishuponawedding.org

Please note that donations are not required to view or for vendors participate in the show. This is my labor of love to bring awareness to Wish Upon A Wedding and my belief in supporting small businesses and individual artisans. If you feel led to help Wish Upon A Wedding accomplish their mission, please see Wish Upon A Wedding’s donation page.

Etsy Virtual Bridal Show: Day 1, Bridal Gowns (3 of 3)

Here is the final part of the Bridal Gowns section. I hope you have enjoyed all of these gorgeous dresses and hopefully one that speaks to you. If you are wary about ordering a custom dress, I can assure you that you won’t be sorry. Check out a shop’s feedback and see how many satisfied customers they have. Don’t be afraid to ask for what you want, even if it’s a bit non-traditional. Work with the shop and trust that they are experts at what they do. I ordered my own wedding jacket from an awesome Etsy vendor. I gave her my measurements and when it arrived, perfection.

What is Your Bridal Style?

Having trouble narrowing down what type of wedding you want? Need some insight with regard to your wedding theme? Well, Get Married.com has a really great tool to help you: The “What is Your Bridal Style?” quiz. Pop on over to http://www.getmarried.com/discover-your-style/ and find out what your bridal style is. In addition, Get Married has a weekly show on WeTV every Saturday morning at 9:30am ET/PT and a free wedding magazine just for signing up on their main page: http://www.getmarried.com. What is my bridal style?

36% Fergie
Bold and modern and one of a kind.

You are an edgy and free spirited bride. You love being creative, different and unpredictable. You have your own style and you want your distinct personality to shine through everything you do. The reception and ceremony will be bold and dynamic and the perfect setting for you to make a statement. Your wedding gown will be anything but ordinary- perhaps, a short white gown paired with fabulous colored heels that screams attention but not bride. Your funky style will shine through in your decor. Your guests will flip over the black and white print, especially the motif inspired wedding cake. Your wedding is all about the location and it must stand out from other weddings. Whether you say “I Do” on top of a mountain, in the desert, or even at your local art gallery, your wedding will be uniquely yours.

22% Julia
Your simplicity defines you and your wedding.

Calm, cool and casual we never see you sweat the small stuff. You know your wedding will go off without a hitch because, in your mind, it’s really all about you and your husband. Your wedding will be a fabulous celebration complete with beautiful floral combinations and sweet details like lovebird centerpieces and photo box favors. You and your guests will have fun dancing to the Dj and posing in a customized photobooth. Your wedding gown will be simple yet chic and no doubt your shoes will be comfortable! At the end of the night a stretch limo will whisk you & your husband away, completing your magical day!

22% Khloe
Trendy and full of sass.

You are a fashion forward and sassy bride. You crave the latest designer duds and are always up-to-date on the hottest trends and styles. Your wedding will be the hit of the year with the hottest decor and dancing that lasts into the wee hours of the night. You would look ultra-chic in a classic gown with a colorful sash. We envision your wedding to be filled with bright flowers and customized lighting. Your guests will dine on miniature versions of your favorite comfort foods paired with a signature drink, perhaps a pink pomegranate martini. To complete your sassy wedding you and your groom will give each guest a lottery ticket wishing them all luck in love.

15% Charlotte
Your traditional taste stands the test of time.

You are a classic and traditional bride. You love traditions because you believe that trends are here today and gone tomorrow. Your wedding will be timeless and elegant with a sentimental ceremony and sophisticated reception- after all you have been planning your wedding since you were a little girl. Your white wedding gown is graceful and you complete the look with a simple blusher veil. Your wedding is filled with all of your family, friends and loved ones because it’s important that everyone you and your fiancè love share in this special day. The wedding is all white and the reception carries the theme with some hints of color added into the mix. Your guests will dine on an elegant meal and then let loose when the dancing begins. Your guests will be delighted when they see your wedding cake, napkins and menu are adorned with your new monogram.

8% Scarlett
Vintage and creative, your mix of old and new makes something uniquely you.

You are old Hollywood glam with a touch of romance. You have an eye for style and this will no doubt come through in your wedding decor. We envision your venue filled with items from antique shows and markets. We see candelabras and rose petals spread throughout your reception. Your ideal wedding dress is a long, cream lace gown with hints of beading and detail throughout, either found at a vintage store or redesigned from a family member’s gown. Red lipstick and shoes to match! Your guests will sip on martinis and champagne, dancing the night away. As the music dies down, your guests will send you off into the night with sparklers creating a fantastic photo op and a memorable moment.
