How To Style A Glamorous Bridal Braid

Easily one of the most sought after hairstyles of the bridal season had to be the loose braid! In any variation! To the side, half up, around the crown...you name it, our brides showed us them all as their top inspirations for their wedding day hair!

So naturally, when it came time to photograph some of our new braid-worthy hair accessories we called upon Jayna Marie Makeup and Hair to create an effortlessly glam version we knew our brides would love! Voila! 

Wedding Hair Braided Style at www.elsacorsi.com

Now when we say effortlessly glam...we mean with a little effort as there are a few keys to pulling off this look successfully!

First, you will want to get your hands on a set of quality hair extensions at Abantu. Not only do they have an amazing selection, but the staff there really know what they are doing and can help you match up the extensions as close to your natural color as possible.

Secondly, and the most important (we think!) are some fabulous hair accessories! Our choice for this is multiple coordinating pieces artfully placed in a sparkling cascade. What we love about keeping the pieces separate, as opposed to one large long piece, is the versatility it allows your stylist when creating the look. Plus, for future occasions you can choose to wear all or some in a different arrangement or style altogether! Hello, birthdays and anniversaries! We just love it when pieces can be re-worn, don't you?

If you loved this look, we have rounded up all the pieces in our Online Shop for you to recreate it on your own!

Worn alone or in a group, these hair pins feature three sizes of graduating marquise crystals in a fern inspired shape.

  • Swarovski Crystal

  • Length about 2 inches

  • Width .6 inches

  • Made to order

  • Available in Gold or Silver Plating (indicate at checkout)

  • Swarovski Crystal

  • Metallic Leaves

  • Available in Clear or Light Silk Crystals, please indicate at checkout,

  • Pairs with

  • Pairs with Rosebud & Gold Leaf Hair Pin, as shown in last photo

Now, I say effortlessly glam...but there is definitely some effort and must haves to get the look!

The first thing you must have are hair extensions! They are the key to creating the perfect balance of length and volume to support this look. We suggest Abantu  as your first stop in shopping for this important purchase. Not only do they have and amazing selection already, but the knowledgeable staff are more than happy to assist in matching up the right style and color for your needs!

Secondly, the right hair accessories...of course! We like using multiple coordinating pieces to create a sparkling cascade. This way your hairstylist has more versatility when creating the look and you can wear as many or as little as you want for another occasion! Hello, birthday and anniversary!

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.
 

A Sunset Engagement Shoot You Will Want To Pin Immediately!

Vancouver Engagement Photos by Simply Sweet Photography, Full Post at www.elsacorsi.com

These days, most photographers include a pre-wedding shoot or Engagement Shoot with their photo packages for your big day. Don't miss out on the opportunity to have little fun with it!

Whether you are normally shy or or a selfie queen, this is a great moment to get cozy with the people you will be spending a lot of time with on your wedding day! The best photos are always the ones where you can let your true smiles out naturally!

Vancouver Engagement Photos by Simply Sweet Photography, Full Post at www.elsacorsi.com

It's also an opportunity to experiment with some hair and makeup styles without the pressure of it being on the wedding day! We find our brides like to do a little more of a playful style for these shoots and opt for a classic bridal style for the actual day. So it is a great way to satisfy all your style aspirations!

We just love how Vancouver Hairstylist, Zia Stolbie used both our Crystal Hair Branch with The Gold Leaf Rosebud Hair Pin to create a glamorous, woodland inspired down do.

All of the jewellery and hair accessories from this shoot are available online now for purchase.

FEATURED: Deco Glam With A Nigerian Twist In Wedluxe Magazine

Wedluxe_Brandi_Cover.jpg

At first glance, you might look at Brandi and Emy's wedding photos in Wedluxe Magazine and think that they are one of the styled shoots...nope! These two are the real deal and their glamorous wedding with a Nigerian twist oozed fun and originality!

LAD_4846.jpg

For the first of her three outfit and jewellery changes...yes, three! The beautiful bride wore one of our favorite styles - the Elsa Button Earring! An earring we love (and wear!) so much, we named it after ourselves! This is the perfect statement stud earring that looks equally appropriate for formal occasions as it does at brunch with the girls after the big day! 

Wedding Vancouver, Hong Photography, Elsa Corsi Jewelry

Then for the dancing portion, Brandi let her hair down and wore one of our other favorite styles...a one-of-a-kind couture design featuring a combination of white opal and clear Swarovski crystals.

We are one hundred percent behind the trend of having an "accessory change"! Why? Because sometimes, depending on the the time of day your ceremony is, what you would wear to church at noon is not necessarily what you would wear dancing at 8pm! Makes sense! Plus, you get to add two pairs of earrings to your jewellery collection so its a double win!

La Vie En Cherry Blossom (Part 1)

There is no more beautiful time of year in Vancouver than the Cherry Blossom Festival, which this year runs April 2-29th! It is the prettiest time of year when the landscape is filled with cotton candy colored puffs that literally make Vancouverites mad with delight! If you don't believe us, you'll have to take a peek at our friend Lele Chan's Instagram account that highlights some of the crazy antics she has witnessed on her street highlighting the lengths people go to to get that perfect photo for the 'gram!

While we haven't gone to those extremes (yet!) we did find away to beat the rain and bring the cherry blossoms indoors with an exquisite floral installation by Dushan Flowers on the cage swing at Prep Beauty Parlour!

FEATURED: Carrie + Mr. Big in Wedluxe Magazine

It is so fun after many accessory visits to see a brides Bridal Style Vision come to life and be featured in the pages of Wedluxe Magazine! Carrie had already chosen a beautiful Romona Kaveza Gown with clean lines and gorgeous sparkling belt so as soon as we saw the photos she brought we knew we had the perfect earrings to go with! Voila! The Kara Earrings!

Carrie, Lori Miles, Wedluxe

A bridal belt is kind of what we like to call a "Necklace for the waist" so opting for a bit of a longer earring to go with it eliminates the need for a necklace and creates an overall balanced look!

Carrie, Lori Miles, Bridal Belt, Vancouver Wedding

This is such sweet moment of her sister helping her put the jewels on, especially because we also did her sisters wedding jewellery about seven years ago! 

Sisters, Lori Miles, Vancouver Wedding

If you are wondering why all her girls look so fabulous...it is not just because her other sister owns a fabulous beauty parlor called The Glamoury that we have blogged about before!

...it's because they got it from their mama! No boring Mother of The Bride outfits here! We love this sparkly ensemble complete with our Three Marquise Post Earrings and darling Hair Pins from Jeweliette Jewellery!

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!

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.

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!

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.

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!
