Springtime Bridal Beauty

Spring is such a romantic time of year. The birds are singing, the flowers and trees are budding, and the temperatures are just right for long leisurely strolls with your beloved. What a perfect time of year to tie the knot!

We work with brides year round to create unforgettable beauty looks. From the planning stage to experimentation to the big day, our stylists are great resources for any bride. We even offer a full package designed For the Bride that includes a Swedish massage, a European facial, eyebrow reshaping, a spa mani/pedi, and makeup application.

Over the years we’ve helped many brides create truly beautiful springtime bridal looks. Here are some of our favorites:

Flower Power

Beautiful flower arrangements are the foundation of a wedding, from the bouquets to centerpieces to the petals strewn on the aisle. We think that when it comes to flowers and weddings, it’s almost impossible to go overboard!

Flowers can be easily incorporated into hairstyles, like tucked into a classic chignon, woven into braids, or featured in beautiful wreaths that can be worn with hair up or down.

Even if you’d never be caught dead using artificial flowers in your bouquet, it is often appropriate to use flowers made from cloth in your hair. While usually nothing can compare to the real thing, real flowers can droop and wilt and could even attract a not-so-friendly bee!

Bronzed Lady

While the inclination for many brides hoping for a romantic makeup look is to lean heavy on the pinks and peaches, we love the look of bronze for spring. Bronze on the cheek or eye gives a beautiful glow, and will create depth and strike a great balance with a flowing dress and touchable hair. Try the popular Moonglow Bronzer from jane iredale – this golden bronzer, made with 24-Karat gold flakes, can be used to subtly create the “Golden Goddess” look.

Bright Lips

We’ve been seeing a matte red lip everywhere lately, but we think that a spring bride deserves something even brighter! A pink or coral color  is a beautiful complement to spring colors. Get double-beauty duty in one product with Lip Fixation from jane iredale – each color boasts a lip stain and a lip gloss for long-lasting, luscious lips!  Just remember to layer your lipstick with pressed powder to give it the staying power you’ll need and prevent your groom from turning pink!

And Finally… Be Yourself!

Spring weather can be unpredictable. Sometimes you can get rain, heat, and humidity all in one day! Keep this in mind when you are choosing your hairstyle. You will have much better luck keeping your style looking good if you work with your hair’s natural texture rather than try to wrangle it into something different.

If you dream of sleek locks for your wedding day but your hair is curly or tends to curl up when it is humid, you might need to trade in the straight look for a romantic style that will be enhanced by loose curls.

You’ve heard this a million times, but it bears repeating: brides are the most beautiful when they honor what they really love. No matter the season, you’ll be happiest and feel the best when you are true to the real you!
