You Found the Dress, Now What? Bridal Accessories

March 10

You did what you thought was, at first, the impossible-you found the dress that you will wear on your wedding day, the start of one of life's greatest adventures. Congratulations! 
If you're in the throws of wedding planning, your natural next question is going to be, "Now what do I do?" That's exactly why we're here-to give you the tips and tricks on what comes after finding the dress! 

This week, we'll look at Bridal Accessories! From lace detail to sparkle, our collection includes beaded straps, belts, earrings, bridal collars and capes, veils, headpieces and so much more-the options are truly endless. Bridal accessories allow you to get a little creative and truly make your look one of a kind with your own mix of beautiful accessories. We're so lucky to house accessories from some of the industry's most talented designers. Whether you're a boho bride or the classic ballroom princess, there are plenty of beautiful options from these amazing designers to complete your bridal style. Keep in mind that most bridal accessories are special order and can take anywhere from 6 weeks to 6 months to arrive, depending on the designer. We work really hard to keep a beautifully curated collection of accessories that are avaialble on the shorter end of that time frame, as well as those that take the full 6 months to arrive to ensure that our #BHBrides have a multitude of beautiful options. Whether your gown is best accented by silver, gold, pearl, or even moonstone, there is something for every bridal look!

Are you a more traditional bride? Pair a classic lace edged veil and simple but beautiful drop earrings to style that fitted lace gown to perfection.
Fell in love with a strapless gown but always saw yourself in something with straps or sleeves? Consider embellishing your gown with a pair of straps (there are laced and beaded options!) or even a bridal jacket or bolero to bring your original vision to life! 
For our boho bride? Take a look at our ribbon tie head pieces with floral detail and the perfect pair of stud earrings to make add that special touch to your beautifully natural look.
And for the bride who can't get enough sparkle? Amp up your look with a blingy bracelet, earrings, or belt. Another amazing option? A veil is with a rhinestone edge or even one of our many rhinestone encrusted headpieces.

As we said before, the options are endless and can compliment any bridal look! Give us a call at 281.681.3430 to schedule you accessory appointment today-we'd love to help you style your bridal look to perfection!

#BHB Real Wedding: Renee & Broderick

February 8

Sweet, sweet love is what first comes to our minds when we saw the images from #BHBride, Renee, and her husband, Broderick's, wedding! Set in the beautiful Ring Mountain Event Center overlooking the Texas Hill Country, their wedding day was filled with stunning views, beautiful details, and visible love. Renee looked perfectly timeless and so romantic in her Watters ensemble, and their colors of navy and peach were perfectly striking against the natural backdrop. Congratulations to the happy couple-we wish you many years of love and adventure!

Returning to an Old Love

February 1

February is known by most of the world as the month of love thanks to good ole St. Valentine's, and we wouldn't have it any other way, because let's be honest, what we do centers around love! That being said, we thought it only appropriate to announce something we are oh so excited about. Jim Hjelm by Hayley Paige will be returning to Brickhouse Bridal this month! Jim Hjelm Bridal is classic and timeless beauty. It's a collection for the bride who wants to be remembered in a world driven by trends that are here today and gone tomorrow. Blending beautifully unique lace and romantic silhouettes, the Jim Hjelm collection boasts designs to complement eternal beauty that will never go out of style. While we await our new samples' arrival, we will be hosting a Jim Hjelm Trunk Show on February 24th & 25th featuring their Fall 2016 collection, and we can't wait for our brides to see these beauties! Give us a ring at 281.681.3430 to schedule your appointment today! 

Pretty in Pronovias

January 17

We recently received our #BHBride, Michelle's, bridal portraits and just couldn't help but share them as they were absolutely stunning! Her beautiful high neck lace gown from Pronovias was soft, timeless and so romantic-we fell in love with the gown all over again! We thought it would be a great start to our Tuesday to share the beauty with everyone. Thank you to Joanna Krueger for these beautiful images! Enjoy!

2017 Bridal Trends

December 22

Every new year brings new bridal trends, and as we go into the holidays to celebrate family, traditions, and all that 2016 brought, we thought it would be fun to look at a few of the trends that will be seen in the upcoming 2017 bridal collections. There are so many to love, but we thought these might some of the more interesting and fun ones to showcase!

Bows
The ultimate feminine chic detail, bows are back! We'll be seeing bows incorporated into stunning backs of gowns, as well as sleeves! 

 

Metallic
We swooned over metallic with the rest of the bridal world when it was introduced heavily with bridesmaids collections, but seeing it in bridal collections brings it to a whole other level! This stunner from Watters is sure to be unforgettable-either in rosegold or ivory!

Tiers & Vertical Ruffles
A favorite of the 2017 collections is most definitely texture! Tiers and vertical ruffles is how this trend will play out in soft and dramatic designs, making it a look for a variety of brides!
