20 Feb 2016 Posted by trubridal in Wedding Hair

After years of long, straight hairstyles worn around the shoulders, it’s marvellous to see the amazing variety of mould-breakingnew styles that are bringing in lots of fresh and original hair designs!

Versatile, varied and original

The medium bob has become more popular than ever, as women discover you don’t have to have long hair to wear a relaxed or formal updo. After the uniformity of long, straight styles, everything has changed and now versatility, variety and originality are the key to contemporary hair fashion!

And you won’t find a more interesting and varied gallery of quick and easy updo’s for medium length hair, than I’ve chosen for you today!

What the salons say

There’s been a huge swing towards medium length hair recently and salons report that the main reasons are clients no longer want to spend a hefty amount of money on extensions. Moreover, after having to spend so much time and effort on careful washing, conditioning and generally keeping hair extensions in good condition, women have finally asked themselves, ‘Why am I doing that, when I have perfectly good natural hair?’

The salons say most women are asking for a medium length bob, with or without layers, so they can style it at home in several different ways and with the minimum of fuss! And that’s where quick and easy updo’s for medium length hair come in!

Trendy

Updo’s are currently super-trendy and not only for special occasions. In a fashion-throwback to the 1960’s, when upstyles where a major fashion for a number of years, updo’s are once again a popular choice for work, home and leisure.

Unlike the problems of arranginglong, heavy hair into a stay-put, comfortable and attractive style, quick and easy updo’s for medium length hair are so much simpler to achieve!

Glamorous Wedding at Hummingbird Nest Ranch

19 Feb 2016 Posted by trubridal in Wedding Ideas
Glamorous Wedding at Hummingbird Nest Ranch

This glamorous wedding at the Hummingbird Nest Ranch is going to be the talk of the town for a very long time. A beautiful story of two college sweethearts and a romantic proposal at the Hollywood Bowl all led up to a happily ever after moment for Torre and Steven. Empty Vase knocked it out of the park with a chuppah and floral arrangements that will make your head spin and Revelry Event Designers’ lounge area is so cozy you will simply want to curl up and never leave. Thankfully photographer Curtis Dahl captured all the stunning details of this lavish wedding to whisk us away to this magical day.

Gatsby Summer Dream

Torre and Steven envisioned a rustic, natural setting that would present a juxtaposition to the glamorous feel one would expect at the Beverly Wilshire hotel. They began with a color palette of all whites and delicate hints of silver accents where guests would feel like they stepped into a candlelit Gatsby summer party – romantic and magical without being overstated. Hummingbird Nest Ranch provided the perfect backdrop with the property’s mesmerizing mountain scape. The rest was orchestrated by Irene Boujol of Mindy Weiss Party Consultants and an A-list of vendors.

Suspense in Beauty

Torre chose the lovely elegance of renowned designer Galia Lahav for her gown with lacey details and an alluring train. Her Bridesmaids were invited to find their own dresses in shades of nude to present a mix and match styling. For the first look the groomsmen blindfolded Steven while Torre waited atop a mountain. A suspenseful moment that melted away when he finally made his way to her and took the blindfold off. The entire wedding party was present to celebrate this moment with their special bride and groom before taking their nuptials.

Jaw Dropping Design

They exchanged vows under one of the most breathtaking chuppahs we have ever seen. Empty Vase created a jaw-dropping full floral masterpiece that was perfectly positioned under a grand tree on the property that lead to added drama with Peterson Event Lighting’s handwork. Guests moved into the all white tented reception where Classic Party Rentals, Empty Vase and Revelry Event Designers created a drop dead gorgeous ambience with florals, mirrored tables, chandeliers and one truly chic outdoor lounge. Even the all white cake by Royal Cakes was overflowing with lush flowers. Testimony to this team’s work, the bride and groom exclaim that the reception design was “a present in itself.” An inspiring statement for how all weddings should be. Bravo!

Romantic Candlelight Wedding with Neutral Tones

Romantic Candlelight Wedding with Neutral Tones

At the intersection of modern, clean and minimalist, you will find Jumi and Layi’s ridiculously beautiful wedding with Gorgeous Human Events and Joseph West Photography. It’s a wedding the bride, Jumi, planned through the inspiration delivered by us – Strictly Weddings! And not to be too biased, but an absolute stunner – largely due in part to the romantic candle filled reception. If we had our way, every wedding would come with a side of sparkle that Jumi delivered. A little dash of glitter coupled with the masculinity of gray gave Jumi all the opportunity she needed to play with light and depth to create a pleasing neutral tone atmosphere she yearned for on her dream day. We are honored to be sharing Jumi and Layi’s story and their wedding planning process who exclaimed that our blog was one of her “absolute favorites while planning her wedding” as it helped her visualize real weddings making the whole process easier. And now, she in turn, brings her wedding to us to help inspire brides-to-be!

Match Making Mom

We weren’t the first to help Jumi though. Her mother played a strong role as the match-maker to her now husband Layi. After attending a friend’s wedding and recuperating the next day, Jumi was nudged to attend church with her mom who covertly set up a first glance opportunity that fateful Sunday followed by a sneaky Facebook connection. Since Jumi has her account settings on privacy lockdown, Layi needed help finding her on the social platform which her mother was more than eager to deliver. After a few back and forth direct messages, Layi asked for Jumi’s phone number and they then talked for six hours. Several years later, he shocked her with a proposal on bended knee in front of 45 of their closest friends at his birthday party she had planned.

Personalities Reflected

Jumi and Layi both share an affinity for modern architecture, clean palettes and minimalist design. They wanted their wedding to reflect their personality as a couple. She began with choosing a mermaid Lazaro gown with jaw-dropping hand beading that dazzled under the lights during her walk down the aisle at the Fellowship of the Woodlands in Texas. Her Bridesmaids wore dresses from the Dessy Collection for the ceremony. For the reception, Jumi wore a custom made Danny Nguyen Couture who also had made her veil. IrieJade Beauty and Alex Jean Beauty gave Jumi a glamorous bridal style with her hair and makeup. Her eyes even complimented her chosen color palette with neutral metallic shine enhanced by gray matte and eyelashes that go on for days.

Minimalist Design Meets Romance

Gorgeous Human Events and Keisha’s Kreations took Jumi’s cue for minimalist design. The reception’s romantic ambience was heightened by the use of 600 candles that filled the room. Tall glass vase floral arrangements bursting in white blooms of roses, hydrangeas and orchids graced each mirror topped table for reflective beauty while gray linens perfectly accented silver chargers. Crisp, contemporary details like geometric ghost chairs where found throughout and we love the added element of the rose buds silhouetted on the drapes and dance floor.

Pastel Wedding Colors for a Utopian Summer

18 Feb 2016 Posted by trubridal in Wedding Ideas
Pastel Wedding Colors for a Utopian Summer

Pretty pastel wedding colors surrounded by the greenery of the Holland Marsh Winery give us a taste of a utopian summer dream. Soft hued tones continue to trend on the wedding scene for 2016 thanks to Pantone’s colors of the year: Rose Quartz and Serenity. And let’s be honest, lighter pale colors have a way of becoming the foundation of an utterly romantic ambience every bride swoons over. With this styled shoot, Anya Bortnik of Le Chic Soirée conceived a graceful scene featuring crystal chandeliers, luscious pastel florals and soft, flowing bridal gowns. A charming vision with a contemporary aura captured though the lens of Crystal Hahn Photography.

Pretty in Pastel

The stark white of the Lucite table and vogue chairs from Detailz Couture Event Rentals give the pastels a pop and surrounded by the greens of the winery an outdoor scene begins to take shape. Of course, we love the use of chandeliers in any thing related to wedding! Renaissance Event Rentals and Planning’s are perfectly utilized not only over the tablescape, but the floral arch creating a modern day look that is a bridal favorite. Royal Orchid Florist arrangements burst with pale pink and purple bunches of hydrangeas, roses and large bloomed dahlias. Similar bushels of floral are incorporated into the arch wrapping the wooden structure in rustic glam appeal. Sugar flowers of Cakealicious by Reem on the four-tiered cake are the quintessential touch to tie in the allure of the dessert table with the overall scene.

Fashion Forward Bridal Style

Their bride wears two distinctly different Wedding Dresses by Whyte Couture, each boasting a fashion forward bridal style. The mermaid gown is grand yet elegant with a sexy vibe eminent in the lace corset bodice. The look is graced with the bold bling of Tara Fava Jewellery’s necklace for a polished and unforgettable finish. The second look showcases the floral details on a flowing ball gown. Bespoke Beauty gave the bride a soft and romantic updo accented with fresh floral to heighten the elegance of this bridal style.

Happily Ever After in Coral and Poppy Red

18 Feb 2016 Posted by trubridal in Wedding Ideas

Hot off the runway all the way to the reception, pretty shades of corals and poppy reds are blooming beautifully in everything from bridal party dresses to table décor to flowers. Here are a few ways you can embrace these luscious colors, whether you’re having a more traditional or modern wedding.

Styling the wedding party.

Don’t get too serious or match-matchy. Have fun by playing off of the different hues. If you choose lighter dresses, consider darker accessories (and vice versa) like these parasols and dance-worthy heels. For kissable lips, use a matte lipstick for a more traditional look, or go for the gloss and a little sparkle for a more modern take.

RSVP to a stylish reception.

There are so many ways to make your day even more special with the perfect reception décor. Ditch the white linens and plates and think color, color, color. Not everything has to stay in the coral or poppy red palette, but consider mixing in some neutral colors or greens for a perfectly polished effect–from flowers to candles. Or, take your whimsy all the way with oversized center pieces, shapely glassware and creative seating cards. After all, this is your day, no matter what colors you choose.

Cheers to your special day!

How to guess he is going to propose

18 Feb 2016 Posted by trubridal in Wedding Ideas

Image:© Minerva Studio/ Fotolia

The marriage proposal is one of the most incredible and memorable moments in every woman’s life. The engagement is a prelude to the wedding – one of the happiest days for any woman. You have been dating for enough time and for a few weeks you feel he has become more nervous and as if he is making some plans. Find out if this will be a marriage proposal with a beautiful ring.
1. He helps you more than before.
You have noticed that he suddenly is willing to do the dishes or change the sheets instead of you. This is his way to show you he is worth to be a husband, he cares about the home and does the housework together with you.
2. Brags about himself.
He knows you have your career and can take care of yourself, but as most men he wants to be the financial core of the family. This means  to have decent work, salary and no loans. Men instinctively want to take care of their other half so maybe before he asks you to spend your lives together, he may brag about a work well done or a bonus by the boss.
3. Acts as if you just started dating.
Flowers and fancy dinners again? In fact he tries to make sure that when the big moment comes you will say “yes”. According to Cosmopolitan for many men the challenge to propose is very exciting and freshens the relationship.
4. Questions you.
When the time comes to ask “Will you marry me?” he will for sure want this moment to be special and unforgettable for you. This means he will need more information about you – for example what is your favorite place or most pleasant moment of your childhood. He knows very well your friends will ask “How did he propose?” and he wants you to have a great story to tell.
5. He is very nervous.
In the big day he will be very nervous. Even if he is sure you will say “yes” he will be nervous whether everything will go according to plan. If he is terrified from the weather prognosis for the weekend or insists you to order chocolate cake for desert this means you will receive a shiny engagement ring.
