When brides come for consultations at DeRiah Boutique Salon, our stylists begin the appointment by asking them, “What kind of bride are you?” Sometimes, brides get flustered; they aren’t sure what kind of bride they are and they don’t know what style will best suit them on their special day. Other times, brides bring in the exact photo of the up-do or loose-wave style they’re looking to replicate. No matter which type of bride you are, DeRiah is here to perfect your wedding day vision. With so many bridal magazines and sites like Pinterest popping up, there’s an over-abundance of styles to choose from. We encourage people to bring in images or ideas of styles they like; even if the picture isn’t exactly what you’re going for, seeing elements of multiple styles you’ve chosen as possibilities can help us create one that is personalized just for you. Often, when brides come in unsure of what they’re looking for, we ask them about other elements of their wedding. What does the dress look like? What kind of accessories will you be wearing? What sort of venue will it be held in? These questions give our stylists insight into what your overall wedding personality is, and will often help guide us towards your perfect style. So, what kind of bride are you? Modern The modern bride throws tradition to the wind in favor of contemporary weddings that boast sleek details, vibrant color palates and tons of personalized details. The modern bride might enjoy a statement style, like a dramatic top-bun or unique bow.
Classic Timeless and elegant, the classic bride infuses her wedding with traditional touches, resulting in a stylish wedding filled with everlasting beauty. The classic bride may be more comfortable with a traditional chignon, or even a simple, but still elegant up-do that will photograph well and never go out of style.
Glamorous Stylish and chic, the glamorous bride infuses her wedding with opulent details and a big dose of “wow” factor, resulting in an impossibly luxe celebration. Glamorous brides often choose o accent their looks with statement jewelry, big, dramatic waves, or up-dos you would see on the red carpet.
Vintage The vintage bride looks to the past for her wedding inspiration—whether that’s mid century modern or 1920’s glamour—resulting in a stylish wedding with a timeless twist. Birdcages and retro-curls are popular for the vintage bride, as are messy, tousled waves for the more earthy-vintage girl No matter what your bridal style, DeRiah loves helping brides-to-be plan and execute their wedding day styles.
