Finding the perfect headpiece can be a bit of a challenge for many brides.  If you want something specific or custom Modest Couture by Elizabeth is just what you need.  They have a variety of looks, colors & designs.   The best part is that she can design a custom headpiece just for you.  Here is a sample of what they have to offer.

Bridal Headpieces

Written By~Modest Couture by Elizabeth

I love creating custom bridal headpieces! It is such a pleasure to personally work with each bride to create all of the veils, hats, birdcage veils, and fascinators.  It is so much fun to brainstorm with each of you to come up with the perfect piece for your big day!

Some of my different headpiece types include:  Birdcage veils, blushers, long traditional veils, pillbox hats, fabric flower fascinators, feather fascinators, headbands and the new “Kate Middleton” hat.

Feather fascinators have really come into their own as of late.  A feather fascinator is a great way to top off your outfit perfectly for your big day or for any special occasion.  Feather fascinators can be made from a variety of feathers including marabou or ostrich.  They can be put on a comb or a clip.  Because all my fascinators are completely custom made for each bride or bridesmaid, you can choose the size, colors, types of feathers and the adornments included.  They can be worn individually or with a birdcage veil depending on the look you are trying to achieve.

Pill box hats are one of my specialties.  These are a classic look from the 1960’s that many brides are opting for because they are so unique.  There are very few who actually make pillbox hats anymore.  I love them!  They can be done in a variety of ways to customize them to complement your wedding gown.

Photo by~Modest Couture by Elizabeth

One of my newer hats is the “Kate Middleton” style of hat.  It is a small tear-drop shaped hat worn high on the head, usually adorned with lace, Russian veiling and a few strategically placed feathers, and sometimes a piece of bling.  Kate Middleton and other London socialites wear these frequently.  They are such a fun way to add romance and fun to a wedding.

Headbands can be any width you choose, from very narrow to wide.  They can include veiling, flowers, beads, bling or anything you or I can imagine.  These look especially great on brides with ultra-short hair!  Flower girls love them too!

Birdcage veils can be made in almost any length, shape and size.  I like to make them separately so they can be used with hats, flowers, feathers or headbands!  They are such a fun accessory!

If you are wanting to have a little sweet fun with your wedding this just may be the perfect wedding for your inspiration.  Angelina & Chase wanted a to have a sweet vintage wedding showcasing their love for each other & some of their favorite sweets as well.  The colors she choose were yellow, green & blue.  The colors really showcased the fun ideas with balloons & the amazing wedding cake made by Tasha from Cake-A-Licious.  Don’t forget the gorgeous personalized wedding dress created by Betsy with Modest Couture By Elizabeth.  She knows how to create the perfect new-vintage gown for any bride and I love it!!  Angelia made such a beautiful bride.  Special thanks to Andrea with Andrea Hanks Photography for sharing these images with us.  We hope this sparks a few new, fun ideas for future brides.  Congratulations Chase & Angelina.  We wish you lots of LOVE & happiness in your new life together. :)

Here are a few words from the bride herself:

 

HOW CHASE AND I MET…

Chase and I were born and raised in West Valley City, Utah. We only lived a few blocks away from each other and we both graduated from Hunter High School. His younger sister Chelsea was one of my good friends and she is the one who set us up. Their parents gave them four tickets to see a Jazz game and they both had to bring dates, so Chelsea asked me. It was a wonderful night; we ate at Rumbi, played mad libs and drank a lot of diet coke.

I was down at school in Cedar at the time and so we can thank Facebook for our relationship. We talked a lot through that website and it is funny to say that is where this all began. One weekend a few months after dating, Chase was down in Cedar visiting me for the weekend. We planned on taking a day trip to St. George and it turned into a weekend at Disneyland. Chase said to me, “you know Disneyland is only six hours away..” He knew that I loved Disney and that he would win over my heart if he took me there. And he did, there at the happiest place on earth I knew I was falling in love with Chase Helm. That love has continued to grow ever since.

HOW I CAME UP WITH THE THEME…

It started with the song “can’t help falling in love with you,” by Elvis Presley. I am in love with Elvis and music from the 50’s and 60’s, I can thank my dad for my old soul. That was my song to Chase and that would be what we danced to. Chase and I decided we wanted an old theme, as if we were getting married back then. The theme branched out a little more to a “sweet vintage” theme. Chase’s grandparents own the Condie’s Chocolates and we wanted to include that into our wedding. The wedding was planned to what Chase and I wanted by my cousin Bobbi. She had all the wonderful ideas from the colors and the big balloons to the lanterns and decorations at the Reception. She had been planning my wedding for many years and new exactly what would be perfect.

The best part about the theme was my dress and hat. I wanted a short vintage dress, and had no idea if it existed. I found Modest Couture by Elizabeth in the Utah Bridal magazine and fell in love. We made an appointment and met with Betsy at her home. The dress was the Sophia and it was the first one I tried on, it was the dress for me. To top it off I added a pill box hat, it went perfect with the theme. Then Betsy recommended me to look at a photographer who knew how to take great pictures with that theme, Andrea Hanks.

MY FAVORITE PART ABOUT THE WEDDING…

My favorite part was walking out of the Temple doors holding my husband’s hand. It was so fun to see our family and all our loved ones there to greet on our special day. My other favorite was when Chase and I danced for the first time as husband and wife, to our song. There must have been a million times that I had played that out in my head before the wedding, and then there it was in real life, it was so beautiful.

WHAT I WOULD DO DIFFERENTLY…

There are two things, I would not have cried as much and would have made more time in the day. I think that the planning and hard work leading up to the wedding was overwhelming on the day. I felt like Chase and I had worked so hard to get to where we wanted to be that day. It was crazy to think that all those people were there for us, and I was so happy they were. I only say I wish I didn’t cry as much because of my make-up, you can only touch so much up. They were all happy tears and it was a happy day.

The most important change is one that I will tell every soon to be bride I know from now on, is that I wish that we would have had more time in that one day. Maybe had a ceremony time for earlier in the morning so we could have had more time to take pictures at the Temple. We were very rushed that day and it was hard to get everything in that I wanted. My best friend Caitlin told me to stop and look around at what was going on and to take it all in, she told me that it would go by so fast. Man was she right, and it was the fastest day of my life.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH ANDREA…

Having a good photographer was on the top of my list of things I had to have at my wedding. When Betsy recommended Andrea she just had so many good things to say about her, so of course we had to look her up as soon as we got home from the dress appointment. I knew Andrea was the one when I saw a photo from a previous wedding she had done, in this picture there were the two wedding rings with diet coke cans and ice, and I fell in love.

Chase and I met with Andrea for lunch to talk about what we were looking for and how we wanted our wedding. She started the lunch by getting to know us, asking how we met and how we came up with the ideas for our wedding, she told us about herself as well. She really wanted to focus on the fact that she liked to develop a relationship with the bride and groom and how it would show through the pictures. And that is exactly what happened, Chase and I really connected with her.

A man that Andrea had worked with before had these beautiful old cars and that is what we wanted to shoot our engagements with. I wanted to have a photographer who I trusted and valued their ideas. Andrea came up with all the locations and ideas and they were perfect for me. It was such a fun day; it went from super hot to pouring rain. And we shot with the same kind of car that Elvis had used in one of his movies; Andrea knew that was a must. Chase and I had never really taken pictures like this together, and so it was a very new experience for us. She captured things in those pictures that Chase and I felt and that couldn’t be described in words. We knew that she was exactly what we wanted.

The day I took my bridals I brought my mom with me, who was a lot of fun to be around and I think she helped Andrea out too. We just followed her in our car and she took us to several locations. They were random places that by just looking at them seemed so ordinary, but they turned out so well and I thought they went with the theme so well. My mom and I got to know Andrea and the life she had lived very well; it was a great day out with the girls.

The wedding day was the craziest day of my life and Andrea was there to help me through it. I felt like I didn’t have to worry about her at all, I knew that the pictures of my special day were in the right hands. She caught things in my wedding that I didn’t even know where there, and it is so nice to look back at them now. She knew exactly what Chase and I wanted and we had so much fun with her. I was sad to say goodbye to her that night, knowing that was it.

In our second Q&A with a Utah Wedding Gown Professional, Betsy from Modest Couture By Elizabeth shared with us some of her insight into wedding gown trends and styles.  Betsy is her own designer and her style is extremely unique and different from any other out there.  In just a short period of time her designs have become very popular with brides from all over the United States.

According to Betsy:  “Modest Couture by Elizabeth was born out of a need for fun, unique dresses for brides, homecoming queens, Quinceañera, and all those who prefer not to show too much skin!  These dresses are different on purpose… I don’t want them to look like the same old frumpy-modest dress. These dresses are intended to party, boogie and celebrate in, in your own style, while still having a fabulous one-of-a-kind dress made specifically for you!”

Who is your favorite bridal gown designer?  And why??

Me!  Because my designs are distinctively different, offering ‘new-vintage’ inspired couture designs that are modest. I incorporate both old and new designs with old & new fabrics for a completely unique look.

What are the top dress styles & trends for 2011?

Lots of tiers, soft cascading fabrics, flowing layers, different types of lace, pleats and bows; and especially tea-length gowns.

What wedding dress trends do you foresee in the future?

More designers will start showing gowns with sleeves.

What is the first question you ask a bride when they come in looking for a wedding dress?

What is her vision and feel of her wedding?

What advice do you have for brides when searching for a wedding gown?

Try on all sorts of styles, with different necklines, waists, skirts and lengths.  You’ll never know looks good on you if you don’t try it.

We are a few months into 2011 already but now is a great time to talk about wedding trends. Weddings are so personal and individual but it never hurts to get ideas from what others are doing.  Just because you follow a wedding trend does not mean you have to lose yourself. Take these trends and use them as elements in your wedding; then make sure you add your own personal touches as well.

Vintage Car~Something Vintage Something Blue

The first trend of 2011 is ‘vintage touches.’  What’s old is new again and brides are incorporating this trend into their own wardrobe with vintage-style wedding dresses, red lips, finger waves in the hair, etc. One idea is to even re-use your mother’s or grandmother’s wedding dress. You can rework the dress to fit your own style but what a sweet idea to be able to wear something so personal to your family. We are also seeing a lot of vintage touches in the photography at weddings. This can be done with old photo booths, setting up wedding photos of your different family members, or the style of your photography can be very vintage. If that is the look you are going for make sure you talk to your photographer and let them know what you have in mind.

Remember this dress?  This was her Grandmother’s dress that she had Modest Couture By Elizabeth remake special for her. Read that story here.

Eco-friendly weddings’ are the second trend of the year. Brides are looking to be more environmentally friendly when planning their weddings.  This could mean using LED lighting, recycled paper for your invitations and programs, old mason jars as decorations and maybe even food from local providers. Along with this trend comes another sub-trend: ‘outdoor weddings.’ If you feel confident about the weather then by all means, plan a wedding outside. There is simply no substitute for natural light and the beauty of the outdoors. Of course, it’s always a good idea to have a plan B just in case weather becomes a problem.

Our third wedding trend is ‘DIY weddings.’ Many people are still looking to save money and doing little projects on your own is a great way to stay on budget with your wedding. On top of that, it really adds personal touches to your wedding day and it allows you to incorporate your own interests or hobbies. Some of the easiest DIY yourself projects are your wedding favors, place cards, table decorations and maybe even your programs or invitations.

‘Social media’ is our fourth trend of the year. With Facebook, Twitter and blogs it is extremely easy to keep your guests in the loop while planning your wedding. You can keep friends and family up to date with all your wedding details, or maybe just a few you want to share. These social media tools are also a great way to collect addresses or maybe even send an e-vite to friends and save on some postage.

Now let’s talk fashion! Gray will be taking over as the neutral IT color for 2011. You can pair gray with vibrant hues to really make the colors pop. Navy blue is also showing itself as a trend for 2011. Metallics are making a large presence in weddings; whether that means using a bright color with a metallic accent, or even using several metallic shades together. Gold, silver and champagne colors will definitely be seen a lot this year. As we all know, the focus of a wedding is on the bride. Dramatic ball gowns are making a comeback this year and we will be seeing these fairy-tale inspired styles on many different girls this year.

Ryan and Jessica were married at Heritage Gardens during a very cold December Day, and I am pleased to share some of the details of their wedding day with you, which were freatured on The Bride and Groom.com.  Go here to view the post on their site.

Photography by~ Andrea Hanks Photography

Ryan & Jessica were married on 12/16/2010 at Heritage Gardens. They had such fun details & colors that I wanted to share their wedding planning story with you.  Winter is almost nearing an end so be sure to check back soon for Spring weddings.

How they met~ “Ryan and I met in High School though a mutual friend. It’s actually kind of a funny story; we were going on a double date, but Ryan was not my date. The girl that was supposed to go with him ended up not being able to come so it turned into just being the three of us and by the end of the evening I knew that I wanted to see him again. We went to prom and we’ve been together ever since.”

How Jessica came up with the theme~“One of the first things Ryan taught me was how to snowboard. He was so patient, and now it is one of our favorite things to do together. I never imagined that I would get married in the winter, I always thought that it would be fall, but because of extenuating circumstances it ended up that way and now I’m so glad that it did. I absolutely loved my winter wonderland wedding.”

Jessica’s favorite part of the wedding~ “My favorite part of the wedding had to be all of the people that came to show their love and support. I never even imagined that I knew that many people, and to see friends that I hadn’t seen in years was very special.”

What Jessica learned~ “Is that I never want to do this again. You always dream about planning the perfect wedding but you never dream about how much it really takes to put one together. I had three months to plan because my husband is in the army and would be home on leave soon and we didn’t know when he would have to return, so we had a small window of opportunity, and we took it. On top of full time school and full time work planning a wedding was the last thing on my mind at times. Don’t get me wrong though, I wouldn’t take back one second of the experience but I sure am glad that it’s over. The result has been better than I could have ever imagined.”


What she would do differently~
“I honestly don’t think that I would change a thing. All of the little snafus are what makes a wedding a wedding, you always remember the things that went wrong better than the things that went right and those are the ones that you end up laughing about the most later.”

I wanted to share this wedding collaboration with you to help inspire you to create your own wedding inspiration.  It doesn’t have to be extravagant, or expensive.  It just has to be personal, inspiration & tug at the heart strings.  When planning your wedding remember who will be watching your wedding video years from now.  Or might want to wear your wedding dress and stomp around in your old wedding shoes.  Your day just end after the wedding.  Think of it as just the beginning.  A beginning to a new, wonderful life together as a married couple  and what your future may hold.

That is what this wedding collaboration is to me.  A reminder of all things wedding are beautiful & you can create your own by adding a personal touch to everything you do. Have fun putting your own wedding celebration together & create a love story to share with everyone you meet.

Special thanks to all the amazing wedding vendors who put this amazing collaboration together.
