Lusan Mandongus 2017 Wedding Dresses feature scintillating details inspired by the stars. The collection includes the exquisitely beaded gowns, Theta and Comae.

“A rare sight in our urban night skies, Lusan Mandongus’ 2017 Bridal Collection takes inspiration from mysterious meteor showers which captivated the attention of mankind over the centuries. Following on from the Milky Way theme of 2016, Meteor Showers capture the vastness of space and the lush drama of ever-changing planets and stars as they light up the dark abyss of space. Meteors are recorded as radiating meteoroid trails, creating spectacular patterns and bursts of light.”

Wedding-Planning Jobs for the Mother of the Groom

27 Oct 2016 Posted by trubridal in Wedding News

Wedding-Planning Jobs for the Mother of the GroomThough her role is secondary to the bride’s mom, the mother of the groom can still make a solid contribution to your wedding prep to take some stress off you. (Plus, getting her involved is a solid way to get your relationship with your future mother in law off to a good start!)

Figure out the vendor tips.
Though tips aren’t mandatory, they are customary; they’re also the way to acknowledge anyone who went above and beyond what was expected. If you’re not much of a numbers person, ask his mom to do the math. (Consult our tipping chart to find out how much to give to who.)

Stock the getting-ready room.
She can put her motherly instinct to good use by making sure there’s plenty of drinks and snacks on hand. This is so that the bride and her girls don’t pass out from hunger or dehydration as they’re getting hair and makeup done and getting dressed, which will take hours. No need for heavy, sleep-inducing foods — better choices are fresh fruit, vegetables and dip, and light sandwiches.

Put the wedding-day emergency bag together. 
Aspirin, tampons, needle and thread — these are just a few of the crucial items she’ll need to gather. The bag could be customized so it’s based on the wedding’s location or time of day.

Assembling the favors.
From bedazzling the gift tags to tying bags with ribbon, the favors can be labor-intensive. The MOG’s help will be especially needed if the Bridesmaids, traditionally the favor wranglers, can’t help out. If you’re handling the work too, it’ll give you time to chat one-on-one.

Picking up out-of-towners.
If many guests will be flying in for the wedding, several drivers will be needed at different times and days to fetch them. So if she’s willing and able, ask her to put on her chauffeur cap, fill the gas tank and head to the airport. There’s a wedding on the way!

Want To Know More About Power Dressing?

17 Aug 2016 Posted by trubridal in Wedding News

Power dressing – the term itself brings to your mind visions of powerful men and women wearing business like suits with the right shoes making important corporate decisions. The thing is power dressing is a very important part of most women’s lives because it definitely gives the person dressed in such a way, a definite advantage. Though people may reiterate that it does not matter what you look like as long as you have the right talent, the fact is, appearances are important to give you entry to prove your talent. That is why office dressing for women and men is such a big thing especially if your job involves authority and dealing with consumers and other top brass. You will need to come to grips with power dressing and also quick hairstyle tutorials for office women.

You will need to learn office dressing for women decoded into easy to adapt steps so that you need not spend quite that much time on it on a daily basis. If you are really serious about power dressing and becoming a powerful player in your office, then you should go beyond mere power dressing. You should look at office behavior – 6 steps to make things happier at work too.

Here Are Some Ways That You Can Decipher What Power Dressing Is All About:

It is about smart not sexy: While looking and feeling powerful can be a sexy feeling, power dressing is not about dressing sexy but about looking smart. You will need to start looking at your body type on those terms and work on looking smart. Dressing sexy to office will not make it power dressing because it is not appropriate and not at all advisable.

Fitting not fancy: When you are getting a wardrobe together for power dressing, then it is important that you pick out suits, jackets, skirts, tops, and trousers that fit well. This means that you will need to be able to sit, stand, make presentations and have meetings while feeling good in the clothes that you wear. This means that the dresses or outfits that you pick up have to be fitting and not fancy or tight.

Comfortable not casual: While power dressing and comfortable are not two terms that we use in  the same sentence, the fact is you can never look powerful until you are comfortable with the way you look. While we are talking about comfortable here, ensure that you do not go overboard and make the outfits too casual. While casual outfits are definitely comfortable, they do not reflect a powerful aura.

Simple and sober: Most power dressing outfits dictate that you stick to simple but elegant cuts and sober colors. This is because colors that are too bright or vibrant may not always have the aura of subtle power that you want to project with your office dressing. That is why, you will need to go for simple lines and ensure that the colors that you use are subtle while suiting your complexion.

Many people talk about power dressing as if it is something too complicated, which it is not. It is simply a matter of understanding the way you look and the way you want to look. This means getting to grips with the way your body is shaped, the way your features are put together and getting the colors right as per your complexion, eyes, and hair. Power dressing also includes the way your hair is styled as well as your makeup and the accessories that you carry along with the outfit that you wear.

31 Wedding Hairstyles for Short to Mid Length Hair

09 Jul 2016 Posted by trubridal in Wedding News

The only thing more important than the dress on a girl’s big day is her hair and when it comes to wedding hairstyles for short to mid length hair, it can be hard to get inspiration for something as equally beautiful as the rest of your big day should be. If you don’t want to rely on hair extensions and would much prefer to rock your wedding hair naturally, here’s everything you need to know.

1. MESSY PIXIE HAIRSTYLE + HEADBAND

The humble headband is an instant way to offer something new to any look and when you have short hair, you have the opportunity to rock something slightly more overstated than those with longer hair and an elegant or intricate updo.
Wedding Pixie Hairstyle with Headband

The simple addition of this classic and elegant headband has worked perfectly with those curled tendrils peeking through this messy pixie hairstyle. A definite winner if you ask us.

2. ROLLED CHIGNON + HAIRPIECE

The messy chignon is a very easy look to rock, especially if you have medium length hair. It’s a matter of rolling the hair over and securing in place, letting a few tendrils to hang down and add a curly, romantic tone to the whole look.

Rolled Chignon Wedding Updo for Short Hair

A hair accessory has once again been used here but this time, a simple brooch-style hairpiece. In fact, you could even use an old brooch or family heirloom in your hair to keep the spirit of tradition alive. Something old and borrowed…

3. VINTAGE HAIRSTYLE

Vintage weddings are all the rage these days and this vintage wedding look is simply breathtaking – one that we’re definitely adding to our list.

Vintage Wedding Hairstyle for Short Hair

Pin curls take a bit of practice before you get them right but are one of the most elegant style of curls, structured rather than messy and all over the place. Just because you don’t have long hair doesn’t mean you can’t still rock some beautiful curls.

4. WAVY SHOULDER LENGTH HAIR WITH FLOWERS

For those weddings when natural hair is key, a few large-barreled curls are the perfect way to rock it, especially with the beautiful flower addition that you can see here.

If beachy wedding is your theme, flowers in the hair are a must, and this look shows you how to rock those floral delights without your wedding verging into the area of tacky.

5. TEASED UPDO

A very fifties / sixties vibe, the beehive is a great look for a classic wedding, and with some tousling and backcombing is actually a very easy way of adding to bulk to quite short hair.

The braid you can see used as a headband can be faked with a hair piece, and that simple chignon is both stylish and beautiful. We love everything about this look.

6. BOB HAIRSTYLE + BRAID & HEADBAND

Bringing back the headband today, we love this lace addition to her hair, especially when you haven’t gone with a traditional veil.

The braid is a simple addition but one that adds a little something extra to the hairstyle. It also helps to cover up a large forehead if that’s what you’re worried about. You don’t just have the option of bangs as you can see here.

7. SIMPLE & ROMANTIC HAIRSTYLE FOR MEDIUM LENGTH HAIR

We’ve gone back to easy and breezy wedding hair here and this look screams bohemian, a super simple and romantic way to wear your hair with, once again, the simple addition of some floral beauties.

This time, a sprig of something pretty, perfect for when a big flower in your hair just won’t do, and you were hoping for something a little more back-to-nature.

8. SIMPLE UPDO WITH SPARKLY RHINESTONES

A wedding wouldn’t be complete without rhinestones and we love this simple updo with sparkly rhinestones.

The hair is left simple, straight and with a few tendrils left to frame the face, with the entire bun covered over by what could be a hair piece / accessory, but also could be an old brooch or family heirloom once again.

9. CURLY SHORT HAIR + FLOWER CROWN

For when you don’t have hair length to make a feature out of your hair on your big day, use flowers once again but with this bride, a floral halo or crown more than a simple addition poked into your loose locks.

This look is very pretty, but if you’re having an outdoor wedding, just be mindful of wasps and bees!

10. SIMPLE HALF UP HAIRSTYLE FOR MID LENGTH HAIR

Just because you don’t have long hair doesn’t mean you can’t still wear it up. This simple half up hairstyle for mid length hair is pretty, easy and doesn’t take too long to do.

It has been beautifully adorned with what looks to be baby’s breath – a flower that not only looks beautiful but smells delightful also.

 

11. BRAIDED PIXIE HAIRSTYLE

If you want more of a rocky and edgy look for your big day, what about this one – a braided pixie hairstyle that not only rocks a super cool cut, but also a super cool color – that silvery / gray tone is to die for and we are lusting after it too much right now.

No flowers, no gimmicks, just simple hair with a simple braid – what’s not to love about this?

12. FINGER WAVES + HEADBAND

Another headband to complete those big day vibes, finger waves are curls or waves that actually originated from the 20’s and 30’s, perfect for those looking for a Great Gatsby themed wedding event. Or even just a traditional, vintage one.

You don’t use any curling tools for this look – no straighteners, no curling irons, no curling wands, barrel tongs, anything. Just a lot of wet look gel, a comb and your fingers, using the tools you have to tease and set the waves with an S-shaped formation.

13. RETRO BRIDAL HAIR

Another wedding hair look, another hair accessory – this one continues to follow that vintage theme but this one has more of a 60’s or 70’s flare to it, another hair brooch or grip to nestle nicely in those cute and short curls.

We love that the curls look very natural in this look, all a little different and sitting a little differently from each other. A side-parting completes the look of course, and you could even use another hair accessory to keep your bangs out of your face.

14. EDGY HAIRSTYLE FOR BOLD BRIDES

If you’re more of a bold bride, what about this look – an edgy color, an edgy style, and even better than that, a super-slim edgy braid to add a little something extra to the look.

You wouldn’t normally associate this look with volume for a wedding day but we think it works pretty well. Not everyone wants to have beautiful and cute flowers and accessories in their hair.

15. MESSY UPDO

Sliding back into the more traditional and we come to this stunning messy updo, a look that (in our experience) takes a lot of practice to make something so messy!

Using a simple ponytail and some bobby pins to secure in place, tendrils have been swooped up and pinned in with loose tendrils framing the face and curled for added measure. This hair goes perfectly with those chandelier-style earrings. Every wedding needs a little bit of vintage glam-bling.

16. CUTE HAIRSTYLE FOR BRIDES WITH A BOB HAIRCUT

If you have a bob, wedding hair can be hard to find inspiration for, especially when you have a short bob like this neck-nape skimming style.

A few simple braids and some bobby pins is all it takes to recreate this beautiful look, one that is both messy and elegant all at the same time, and finished off with a simple set of pearl earrings, is very classy.

17. LONG PIXIE CUT + BEAUTIFUL HEADBAND

If you have a slightly longer pixie look, why not rock the headband again but this time, an all-round headband as you have the option of showing it off the entire way around.

Another clever idea to bring back the traditional effect – something borrowed could be a pearl necklace similar to this one that you could wear around your head as a hair accessory rather than an actual necklace. Great idea, huh?

18. CURLY UPDO FOR SHORT HAIR

Curls work really well on short hair that’s been growing out for a while, and as long as you don’t go for a tight spiral perm, you won’t lose too much length with the bouncing waves either.

Some of the soft curls have subtly pinned back in this look, just by pulling random strands back and securing them in place with blonde-colored bobby pins but you could just leave it loose if you wanted to. We think it would look just as cute.

19. MODERN VINTAGE HAIRSTYLE

This look is so very lovely and, we think, almost a little latino too! There’s something very sassy about this look and we think it has something to do with that thrown-over curl / wave at the front. What Jessica Rabbit probably would have looked like if she’d had short hair, you know?

We can’t help but think this sassy look would go hand in hand with a Wedding Dress that shows off the shoulders, perhaps something bodice or corset-inspired with nothing around the arms. What do you think?

20. BRAIDED HEADBAND

What about the brides that don’t want flowers or accessories and would prefer to keep things slightly more au naturel? Well, then you verge into using your own locks as a hair accessory just like this braided headband.

Starting from one side, taking a piece that’s a little below your ear (if your hair is long enough), start braiding and as you go, take it over the top of the head, adding more to the braid but leaving it loose as you go. Pin the end on the other side of the head to where you started and pull out / tease loose tendrils to give you a wavy and romantic look and you’re good to go.

BRIDES: Style Tips for the Indie Bride Lovely Bride’s Lanie List

03 Jul 2016 Posted by trubridal in Wedding News

We recently had the chance to chat with Lovely Bride’s Lanie List, who helped us better define what it means to be an “indie bride”. As the founder and proprietress behind Lovely — a collective of stores across the country who cater to the modern-minded bride — Lanie buys for the bride who loves trends, but stays true to herself.

Boho Bride

Here are some of Lanie’s top style tips and pieces of advice for the “Indie Bride” in all of us.

Think beyond the big-name designers and consider some of the newer, hotter names in the market
“Everyone is loving Rue De Seine, Katie May, and Anna Campbell these days. They hit all of the right trends right now, but do it in a way that is very personal to their designer aesthetics,” says List.

If you like the notion of bohemian style, consider a long-sleeved silhouette
“Long sleeves are a chic and bohemian look that we are loving on our brides. The great thing about it is that it can please the moms but have a great modern look with see-through lace or beadwork that covers in just the right places,” says List.
