Wedding Season is Coming to a Close!

Weddings - Captivating-BeautyThe wedding season is winding down in the Brainerd Lakes area….we still are booked out for a few more months, but you can sense the season has come to a close.

I know the brides we have booked are hoping for beautiful Fall weather in the Lakes Area except one – who is hoping for a little snow:)

There are still a lot more bridal pictures to come so keep checking back in with us.

Thank you to all the brides who have entrusted us for your wedding. We love weddings, and we love helping our brides feel and look beautiful!

A lot of times one of our brides will ask us to share a story of a Bridezilla that we had to deal with….and we tell them we have never had a one!! Since we have a lot of wedding under our belt in 3 short years….that is saying a lot!

Thank you to all our brides – you have been the best!!

Brainerd Wedding Hair – Up vs Down Style

Brainerd bridal hair

There are a few things to consider when making the choice of an up or down style for your hair on your wedding day.

First of all, what is the cut of the dress and does it have intricate beading or a pattern you would like to display? If so, an updo would be a good choice.

Another thing is how well does your hair hold a look? Is the weather likely to be humid? How hot or windy will it be? For all of us natives of the Brainerd Lakes Area, we know that the humidity will more then likely be quite high, so choose your bridal hair style accordingly.

Most importantly you want to be comfortable and to feel the most like yourself.
