Bridgette’s Pick of the Week – Lupita Nyong’o Headband Inspiration

Brides everywhere will be inspired by Lupita's Oscar look.

ATTENTION: Brides with a short a ‘do often want to rock a hair accessory for their strut down the aisle, too. However, most bridal magazines would lead us to believe all brides should wear their hair shoulder length or longer. This is frustrating, so I was beyond happy to see how Oscar winner and all-around fly girl Lupita Nyong’o wore her gold and diamond Fred Leighton headband with her princess Prada gown recently on the red carpet.

Bridgette’s Pick of the Week – My Facial at Milla’s Treatment Boutique

Milla & Me at her chic treatment boutique!

Last month I had the pleasure of getting a facial at Milla’s Treatment Boutique. It was awesome. Although I had been to the boutique once for a press event, this visit was my first time actually having a treatment done by Milla and my first facial in years. The best part?

Bridgette’s Pick of the Week: Wedding Top Knots

This "side" knot is a stylish option for the unconventional bride.

While my own hair is currently short and will probably be even shorter for my wedding day, there are many of you who are opting to rock your tresses long for your strut down the aisle. In years past, women were confined to the basic low chignons or predictable high buns that screamed “prom hairdo” but not anymore. The options for updos as of late are modern and fashion forward. No Styrofoam donuts needed: The messier, the better! Here are a few (including the pic above) that I’m feeling at the moment: [Read more...]

Bridgette’s Pick of the Week – Wedding-Ready Short Haircuts

Like the River Hair Salon in Atlanta, GA created this gorge (!) style.

In between mailing Save-the-Dates (Who knew it would take so long!), finalizing centerpieces, spending way too much time on the Pantone and Dessy websites looking at shades of purple and trying to maintain some semblance of a personal life, I have begun to ponder how I will wear my hair on my wedding day. Okay, let me “keep it all the way 100″ as the kids say — my hairstylist has begun to ponder how I will wear my hair on my wedding day. And she gave me homework. She suggested that I show her pictures of what I like/have in mind. Yet another task for my growing to-do list. [Read more...]

The Road to Mrs. – My Style to the Aisle Bridal Expo Recap

Triple B's Road to Mrs. blogger Nae shares the 411 on DC's Style to the Aisle Bridal Show!

Last weekend I attended the Style to the Aisle, A Bride’s Runway event at L’Enfant Plaza Hotel in Washington, D.C. Created by Michelle Davis of Memorable Moments Event Planning Co. in Baltimore, MD, this one-of-a-kind bridal fashion event brings brides face to face with designers, bridal boutiques, models, photographers, makeup artists and hair stylists. This event is different from most bridal shows/expos in that it is centered around Michelle’s belief that the aisle is a bride’s personal runway and every bride is a celebrity on their special day. Who can argue with that? [Read more...]
