FLEUR: Vancouver Wedding Show Re-Cap

Vancouver Wedding Show, Fleur Vancouver

Well, here we are! Our one-week-aversary since the FLEUR Wedding Show and we are finally recovered and getting around to sharing some of our favorite moments from the event with you! And brace yourselves lovelies, because it's a bit of a long post! 

Upon arrival, brides to be travelled the world through various rooms decorated like Paris, Asia, New York and Whistler. Each room had a corresponding canapé station thoughtfully prepared by the JW Parq Marriott influenced by the decor. After indulging, they joined us in the main ballroom to mingle with Vancouver's top wedding vendors, see the Blush Bridal Fashion Show and partake in the expert panel featuring Kaitlyn Bristowe and Monika Hibbs.

At our booth we displayed a selection what to expect when you you visit us at Jeweliette Jewellery on elegant white pedestals supplied by Debut Event Design with logo appliqués by The Wrap Guys. We also had oversize posters printed of a recent mini shoot we did with Hong Photography, Jayna Marie Makeup and Kelsey from Lexington ModelsMore on that shoot in another post (coming soon!).

We loved showing everyone all the new hair accessories we have been working on and sharing more about the process of our craftsmanship. All of our pieces are made in our Vancouver studio, from start to finish, using techniques that became popular in the 1950's. We send no parts of our jewelry to be worked on by outside sources which is why we have total control over your piece and all the customizing options we can offer! 

Vancouver Wedding Jewelry, Elsa Corsi

Here's a peek at one of our most popular styles The Jennifer Earring! a custom designed named after one of our past brides that found a home and a heart in our collection!

Ok, So back to the show! When we weren't at our booth chatting with brides we were walking around the ballroom admiring all the hard work our industry friends put into their displays! Especially the florists! Hello, when you are at show named FLEUR then you know the florists are bringing their A-Game to the Flower Game!

Our first stop was at The Flower Factory display. They had a really cute market cart set up with multiple bouquets you could choose from and have you photo taken in from of their flower wall. Looks like a perfect Instagram moment, right? Snap away! P.S. If you are not already following us on the 'gram you can click "follow" HERE

Elsa Corsi

It could be said that Elsa Corsi was destined to become a jewellery designer. Heralding from a long line of Italian shoemakers turned merchants, it was only natural that she inherit a passionate eye and skill to pursue aesthetic beauty. It was in 2006, to celebrate her own wedding that she came out with a dedicated collection of bridal jewellery. Clients were attracted to the vintage technique mastered in the collection and were thrilled to have their own piece of heirloom jewellery. Her bridal and special occasion jewellery has been sought out by the city’s top stylists and fashion editors for photo shoots and Real Brides wearing Elsa Corsi jewellery are regularly featured online and in print in Real Weddings, Weddingbelles, Grace Ormonde and Wedluxe Magazine.
 

FEATURED: Paris Meets New York In Wedluxe Magazine

An It Girl is a trend-setting (in fashion, lifestyle, etc.) woman or girl with a ton of self-confidence and self-worth that sets the example of how to have it all, and look good doing it.

So it only makes sense that when Wedluxe Magazine set forth the "It Girl" as the style inspiration for the Winter/Spring 2018 Issue, that Countdown Events chose Garance Doré. Along with her effortless, cool-girl style, Garance is French fashion illustrator-turned photographer-turned blogger credited with starting the street style blogging template as we know it!

Scroll down to see the more from this stylish spread, featuring our Stephanie Earrings and Crystal Hand Jewellery! 

Paris Meets NY_Cover.jpg
Drawing inspiration from famed fashionista Garance Doré and the two metropolises she represents, this chic wedding design is the bridal embodiment of European elegance and stylish simplicity. See more from this Glitterati Style File in the Winter/Spring 2018 issue of WedLuxe Magazine (Vancouver & Western Canada edition), on newsstands now.

FEATURED: Emerald Green In The City with Jasmine Hoffman and I Like Her Style!

It's no secret that we are obsessed with anything that resembles Emeralds! In the Swarovski rainbow there are several greens that fit the description, but the shade featured in these pieces is the first green they created, and the one that officially bears the Emerald name.

Most of the styles in our Online Shop can be customized in this shade, but these pieces featured on Jasmine Hoffman for I lIke Her Style Vancouver, were created with your Holiday Party Style in mind! 

The full feature appropriately named Jasmine In The City - Bejewelled In Emerald can be viewed online, HERE! But keep scrolling for more of our favorites and to shop our Emerald Green Jewellery!

My favourite thing about doing business in Vancouver is the support I receive and collaborations that I’m able to do with others. We have such an amazing group of business babes in Vancouver and it’s really great to see the networks grow. I always say – ‘we will rise up together’.

But they look equally FANTASTIC joined together to form a longer style. Jewellery that does double-duty? Yes, Please!

CRÈME DE LA CRÈME: Vancouver Wedding Show Re-Cap

Vancouver Wedding Show Featuring Jewelry Designer Elsa Corsi www.elsacorsi.com

If there is one event that our bridal community and brides to be have come to look forward to year after year since 2004- it's Creme de la Creme produced by Countdown Events! Pre Cremè days just the very thought of bridal shows conquered up cringe worthy images of yards of tacky tulle, campy fashion productions and rows of vendors in a traditional trades show format just handing off business cards to passing brides. Thanks to Crème who continuously elevates the bridal show expectation, this is not the case anymore! Keep  scrolling for some of my highlights from this years Crème de la Cremè Show on November 19, 2017 at The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver.

Vancouver Wedding Show featuring Jewelry Designer Elsa Corsi www.elsacorsi.com

We were pleased to debut our new collection featuring sculpted gold leaves, vintage porcelain flowers and delicate vines along side our Classics, like The Vine Comb shown below which will always be a mainstay in the line due to its timeless design.

Vancouver Wedding Show Featuring Jewelry Designer Elsa Corsi www.elsacorsi.com
Vancouver Wedding Show Featuring Jewelry Designer Elsa Corsi www.elsacorsi.com

Also this season, you will see us incorporating more of the leaf motif with White Opal Swarovski Crystal. White Opal crystals are a lustrous, translucent milky  white color that has an inner glow to it. Combining it with Clear crystals, is one of our favorite ways to add a different dimension to the overall sparkle of a piece. 

Vancouver Wedding Show Featuring Jewelry Designer Elsa Corsi www.elsacorsi.com

Everyone was also asking about our Laura Hair Jewelry, seen below! This is just one of the several ones we have available to try on in our shop however the beauty of making our collection locally means that we can also customize these pieces!

Vancouver Wedding Show Featuring Jewelry Designer Elsa Corsi www.elsacorsi.com

Rule #1 of wedding shows. Expect a strict diet of cake, cupcakes, cake pops and anything chocolate or chocolate covered. It burns a lot of calories walking around a show so go ahead and indulge a little (or a lot!) I went for this  Salted Caramel and Chocolate Cupcake topped with Coconut from Cake and Giraffe. However, you cannot go wrong with any of the cake vendors featured at Crème as the have all passed the ultimate taste tests! Lè Gateau Bakeshop is also favorite and made my epic birthday cake last year! 

Vancouver Wedding Show Featuring Jewelry Designer Elsa Corsi www.elsacorsi.com

These mini cakes designed by Joconde Patisserie were truly a work of art on the feature table with florals by Dushan Florals and decor by Art of the Party. The Elsa Button Earring in White Opal as shown is available in our Online Shop!

Vancouver Wedding Show Featuring Jewelry Designer Elsa Corsi www.elsacorsi.com

And if my tiara and sky-high hair by Courtney Brands and makeup by Nadia Albano Style Inc. didn't already make me feel like a Queen, it was definitely this Floral Throne designed by Celsia Florist. Every year they just bring it with something new and exciting! Just WOW! A perfect backdrop for portraits, I can see a lot of 2018 brides putting this on their wishlist!

Vancouver Wedding Show Featuring Jewelry Designer Elsa Corsi www.elsacorsi.com

Another item I can see being on every brides wishlist is a custom floor wrap by InStyle Floor Wraps. Elevate your dance floor and shoe selfie game instantly!

Choosing a wedding gown is probably one of the biggest decisions a bride will make, and Couture Fashion Show by Bisou Bridal featuring Galia Lahav Gowns didn't make it any easier - they are ALL so gorgeous!!! 

Vancouver Wedding Show Featuring Jewelry Designer Elsa Corsi www.elsacorsi.com

The Gatsby inspired makeup and hairstyles styled by Nadia Albano Style Inc. were accented with some of our hair accessories and earrings. The curved Fiori Comb seen below is one of our classics and comes in five sizes!

You Definitely Need To Bring This To Your Beauty Trial

Along with the oodles of inspirational beauty pins you have been collecting, you will want to bring your bridal accessories to your hair trial.

Why you ask? Because having the items to work with at the trial allows your stylist to create a style that truly shows off the piece and finishes off your final look. You don't want her (or him!) spending hours designing a hairstyle only to be surprised on the day of with a new element, do you?

Having the piece in hand is key to determining the best possible placement for maximum impact. Heck, you didn't spend all this time and money picking out the perfect piece only to have it not show up in photos!

Wedding Halo, Hair Trial.jpg

When it comes to side combs, we usually recommend that they be placed on the RIGHT side of the hairstyle, as this is the side that your guests will see the most of during the ceremony and be in most of the photos. However, some stylists we know like styling the hair to the LEFT side of the face because they say they say the hair just looks better on that side. See? That's one of the details you can determine at the trial and you will need the accessory to decide for yourself which way you feel the most beautiful!

Wedding Hair Vancouve, Halo, Mirror,.jpg
Wedding Hair + Makeup, Sarah Halo, Trial.jpg
Wedding Jewelry, Sarah Halo, Earrings.jpg

We know sometimes it can be hard to choose a piece and often we see brides torn between two styles in our shop that they really love. So as an extra service to our brides who have committed to purchasing with us, we offer them to take two pieces to their trial to ease their selection process. 

Our shop, Jeweliette Jewellery is open Tuesday to Saturday 10:30am - 6pm 

Appointments are not necessary, but you are welcome to make one so we know to reserve that time for you!

Love the Sarah Halo featured in the post? It is available in our online shop!

5 Ways To Photograph Your Shoes and Jewelry (Before You Put Them On!)

As women, our obsession with shoes surely must start with the age old story of Cinderella. Could a single pair of shoes reeeeeaaaally be that important? When it comes to wedding day footwear, the answer is YES!

We'd also like to add the jewelry to that equation, since it is these accessories that you can absolutely wear again after the big day (hello, anniversary!)

So we have rounded up some our our Real Brides photos from their wedding day that showcase two of their favorite things! Shoes and Elsa Corsi Jewels! Enjoy!

A West Coast Wedding As Seen In Style Me Pretty

Style Me Pretty is one of everybody's favorite wedding blogs! It showcases oodles of inspiring content and some of the most beautiful weddings around the world. So naturally when one of our brides is featured on it-we are thrilled!

Set within the super stylish walls of the Rosewood Hotel Georgia and bedecked with white blooms and leafy greens from Garden Party Flowers, not even our Vancouver rain could put a damper on Betty and Steve's beautiful day!

Betty wore our Pave Halo Earrings and double strand, freshwater pearl Violetta Bracelet. Each bracelet is hand strung to order so we were able to customize the fit of the bracelet to a perfect size. We then hid the clasp with a sparkling design of Swarovski crystals so there are no gaps or hanging chains, just a seamless circle of beautiful jewellery.

Both of Betty's pieces are available in our Online Shop and can be customized at check out.

Fabulous Friends Night Out

If you follow us on Instagram, then you might of caught our story of a recent night out with The Girls at Joey's Restaurant. Everyone kept asking what the occasion was...a birthday? A celebration? What? Nope, just Thursday

We also got to resurrect on of our original chokers from the 90's as well as Tasseled Necklace we had hiding in our jewelry box. That's the fun thing about jewelry, it's not about wearing it everyday or how often you wear it - it's about being able to call upon pieces when the mood or the occasion calls for it. Bonus points for when it reinvents what you already have in your closet which can be even more satisfying than getting a new dress!

Elsa Corsi,  Jasmine Hoffman, Hong Photography
Elsa Corsi, Jasmine Hoffman, Hong Photography

To start we feasted on a family style presentation of appetizers that included Night Market Curry Dip, Hawaiian Tuna Tacos and Osaka Style Pressed Salmon Sushi. Note to self- next time order more of the Pressed Sushi...it was to die for!

Food Photography Vancouver, Hong Photography, Joey Restaurants

And then we feasted some more! You can never go wrong with Steak Frites. Unless you are a vegetarian, then it would not be the right choice. Good thing JOEY Restaurant has some options for both Vegetarians and Celiacs, who were also at the table.

Food Photography Vancouver, Hong Photography, Joey Restaurants Vancouver

Cheers to these custom, crafted Elderflower Collins Cocktails! They were the perfect color to match our table arrangements from Sunflower Florist. Yes, we brought our own flowers...because that's just how we roll.

You would think that Jasmine had planned her nails and sequined Little Pink Dress to match our drinks as well, but pinky swear that was just a happy coincidence!

And these two! They are just the cutest! Diana is what we like to call a BRIEND. A briend is what you get when one of your past brides becomes one of your lifelong friends! Get it? Bride + Friend = Briend.

Diana and Hannah from Little Pink Dress Design. Hannah made Jasmine's sparkly little number, pictures below and Diana's daughter christening outfit- now that's what we call range!

What do you get when a microblader, a costume designer and a makeup artist walk into a room? Three super stylish women, obviously! Sarah just opened a chic Gastown Micro-pignemtation Loft and Claudia Da Ponte is one of Vancouver's most sought after stylists and costume designers for television.
