In Bridal, accessories open the door to a look that is versatile and tells many different stories. I founded my Ever After Boutique on these basic principles.
I personally LOVE accessories; they are such a great expression of Fashion. You can take any look and with the right belt, necklace, earring, etc. transform that look to the next level. What is even more fabulous is taking that same look and styling it three to four times over.

These principles apply to your Bridal look as well. Enjoy the moment and make it your own. It is no mystery that the Bridal Couture Houses produce one or two exclusive collections a year. These gowns are works of art to be worn for those who seek the allure of a truly couture piece for their wedding day. It has been my philosophy to make each look special to the woman who wears the gown. Through the process of styling, the bride must make the look her own.

For example take these two amazing looks: one from Oscar de la Renta’s 2009 collection and the other from Vera Wang’s 2010 collection. These gowns have been the most sought after gowns by brides! They set the stage for a new trend in Bridal Gowns.

Ever After Brides can style these gowns in various ways. An example of one look is keeping it clean and simple with diamond earrings, a bracelet, and a simple runway veil. Another look, use chandelier earrings, a crystal encrusted belt at the natural waist, crystal veil and two large crystal bangle bracelets. A last look could be the traditional bride that pair the look with heirloom earrings, cross and bracelet from the family’s jewels. Upon placing her veil she selects a mantilla of chantilly lace.
