One Look – Five Styles Classic Bride, Series 2:

One Look – Five Styles Classic Bride, Series 2:


This bride was dressed in a gown from Mon Amie Bridal; the gown was very romantic and feminine which had cascading ruffles and a very lightweight fabric. Contrasted by the bride’s classic, chignon hairstyle which we really want to enhance with various head accessories from headbands to crowns and head pieces without overpowering the entire look. Winged liner and red lips completed this bride’s classic look, see how we styled each look below.

Style 1: Keeping the entire look ‘classic’ bridal, we left the bride’s chignon untouched, and instead added simple Dvnchi earrings and a What a Betty belt to the dress creating the perfect amount of sparkle and accent to the look.

RITZFINAL79RITZFINAL67Style 2: This stunning Dvnchi head crown wrapped in a circle so we placed it around the bride’s head, the beautiful crystal leaf-like design creates this halo affect around the bride’s head and also looks like vines perfectly placed in her hair. The earrings, also Dvnchi, were kept simple to highlight the headpiece.RITZFINAL69RITZFINAL68Style 3: We loved the simplicity of this What a Betty belt, and instead of having the bride wear it on the dress, we wrapped it around her head for a double headband look. The belt as a hairpiece, nicely accents the hairstyle without looking busy.

RITZFINAL77RITZFINAL74Style 4: A bold, silver floral crystal Dvnchi headpiece was added to the side of the chignon to create a striking bridal look. You can’t help but do a double or even triple take at the magnificent head piece, so much so that we didn’t want to add any other accessories aside from the small Dvnchi earrings. If you want to wear a long veil with a headpiece like this, have your chignon styled up higher on or close to the crown of your head and place the crystal floral headpiece underneath the chignon with the veil cascading underneath it down the back of the bridal gown.

RITZFINAL57RITZFINAL58Style 5: This Dvnchi crystal leaf design headpiece had a curve to it so we thought it best to place it wrapped around the chignon which created an interesting and beautiful bridal look. The headpiece is statement enough for this classic bridal look but if you want to add more sparkle, add a simple crystal belt or layer crystal bracelets/bangles.
