As warmer months approach, we know that at both of De Riah’s Milwaukee area salons, we will soon be styling countless brides and bridesmaids throughout the remainder of 2012. While trends come and go, wedding traditions date back to the beginning of history. The bridal veil originated as a symbol of youth and virginity, but today the lifting of the veil, for that first kiss, is symbolic of the removal of the last barrier between herself and her spouse-to-be.
A modern day fascinator is larger than a hair clip and can sport feathers, flowers, beads or beautiful fabric and it is attached to the hair with a comb, headband or hair clip. Brides are wearing them as an alternative to a veil or hat especially if she is wearing a non-traditional wedding gown. De Riah is always excited to work with your style. Bring in headpieces for your trial bridal styling so we can ensure your look will be perfect on your special day, accessories included! Text by Sheryl Davies
