Tips: Choosing to Wear a Veil or a Headpiece for Your Wedding

With casual, outdoor, destination and vintage inspired weddings growing in popularity over the last year, more traditional-style wedding trends have sort of come to a standstill.

Our dresses are sexier, our shoes are colorful and our hairstyles have taken on a more tussled, natural look…and typically sans veil. But with the royal wedding taking center stage earlier this year and the consequential emergence of grandiose, Victorian inspired weddings predicted for 2012, it’s more than likely the veil will be making a comeback.

So how do you choose? Continue reading

Designer Spotlight: My Future Wedding

My Future Wedding

Growing up, I wasn’t exactly the girly type. But just because my rugby ball replaced my Barbie doll, that doesn’t make me any less of a girl. Needless to say, weddings were an entirely foreign concept and I never really gave them any thought. While my grade school counterparts had everything planned down to the seating arrangement, I had never once thought about my own wedding. And then, some 20 years later, that all changed when I was hired on at Weddingstar.

Am I married? No. Am I engaged? Not yet. But I am going away on vacation with my boyfriend of four years who I have a house and a dog with, and I believe that would be an ideal time and place for that oh-so special moment. Of course, if he fails to do so, there is always Valentine’s Day just after we get back, and we just so happen to be going to a hockey game in Calgary that night. Hmm…

As exciting and special as it will be, I figure there is really no rush for him to propose. Little does he know that I will have the entire wedding planned out by then anyway.

Vintage vs. Modern Continue reading
