TGIFF… wait what? You’re probably reading that and saying, oh those Simply Couture Wedding Gals totally forgot to look over their grammar and edit that. But nope we meant it; it really is TGIFF… Thank God it’s Fashion Friday, of course! What would an exciting Friday be without our weekly fashion Friday blog? This week we are featuring veils. Veils are not for every bride, we understand that, but we still love them and think that if you’re on the fence about wearing on, this blog may help you finalize your decision on whether or not to wear one. We are featuring 3 different style veils, the cage veil, the fingertip veil, and the blusher veil.


The cage veil is a shorter styled veil. It frames and covers your face or a small portion of your face. This is to create a very simple, chic, and minimalist look. It is typically made from tulle or a wide net. It is typically embellished with some sort of flower, bling, or applique that sits in your hair. The best way to wear this style veil is to let it fall just below the edge of your nose.


Here are some of our favorite cage veils:


The fingertip veil is probably the most wide known and popular style of veil. This veil is typically what most brides envision when they think about a veil. This veils falls bellow the hips and extends to the fingertips. (Hence the name.) You can wear a fingertip veil on the crown of your head, slightly behind the crown of your head, or if you’re wearing your hair up than just above your updo.


Here are some of our favorite fingertip veils:


The blusher veil is any veil that covers your face. It is made from tulle, and can come in varying lengths, from your chin, shoulders, and even to our fingertips. The blusher veil also doubles as a double-tiered veil because of its two layers of tulle; one layer to cover your face, and the other layer a draped behind your head. A blusher veil should be fastened to the crown of your head.

I do not even know where to begin!  This is truly a wedding planner and client meeting for the history books..I met the bride, Tracie, at a bridal show I was invited to attend by our friend Nicole at Bridal Couture of Boca, and out of the hundreds of ladies I met that day, Tracie contacted me.  (Actually.. I think we were chatting before this via email, but she came to visit at the bridal show…it has been over 2 years so not sure the real story is “real” anymore.. ha!)  After chatting back and forth via email, we setup a consultation one night at a local Starbucks.  Tracie spotted me in the corner of the coffee shop and we instantaneously “clicked.”  Our love of black, white and neon color pops, along with polka dots and dry humor was a match made in planning heaven.  After an almost 2 hour consultation, Tracie decided to book me!  (I was honored and ready for the challenge).

We then had another consultation where she brought in the “big guns,”–Mr. B!  After meeting with them both, Mr. B had one qualm… “Make Tracie happy and be her therapist, her planner, her friend, etc… so I don’t have to hear about all the wedding details.”  I obliged after some laughs, and they signed the contract.  ….and so it began!    If I called ATT to check the amount of texts, or scanned through my email account, I am sure a 1k+++ number would pop up, but I would not change it for the world!  Tracie always used to say if she didn’t get a text or email from me daily she would “text or email me a stupid question (that she probably knew the answer to) just to get a response from me.”  She most definitely suffered from wedding planning withdrawal.  Hahahah!

After almost 18 months of full service wedding planning, we pulled together one of the most fabulous soirees in town!  We went from a glam hollywood theme, and narrowed it down to modern classic black and white themed wedding with a pop of ombre hot pink and touches of polka dots.  The wedding was in October, and guests are STILL raving about it to this day.  The vendors made the night, indeed!  We had a few aces in our back pockets (other than ourselves), including  Poirier Photography, Vision DJ’s, David Sutta Films, Orange Blossoms Florals, Got Smiles Photobooth, A Classy Affair Vintage Rolls Royce, Amazing Event Rentals, and  bakery to the stars–Divine Delicacies Cakes.  We also put together one HELL of a candy buffet fit for a candy junkie!  Our favorite moments were:  Tracie’s walk down the aisle, Mike’s fraternity dance (dedicated to Tracie), seeing the black “sexy” vases (wink, wink)!

I could not say more about this fabulous couple!  We have laughed together, we have been angry together, we have cried happy and sad tears, we have had one hell of a long journey that I would never change.  The wedding day was nothing short of amazing, with the ceremony being held at The Bonnet House Museum and Gardens, and the reception following at The Signature Grand.  We LOVE YOU MR AND MRS B!!!

Below are the photos(and details galore… our specialty) to document our journey springing to life:

We are all about gorgeous escort cards. What most brides forget, is that escort cards aren’t a detail that should be overlooked. Be creative; play with your theme and/or color. Dress them up, dress them down, play with nature, hang them, drape them, you can even make them edible. Escort cards are a fun detail to play with because there aren’t many rules. They are much less formal (not in the sense of up-scale, rather just less regulation) so you have free range to do as you please. With all of that being said, we found some of the most gorgeous escort cards on Etsy. They are expensive, but if you can swing it, we highly recommend these! You can use them for just your head table, or even just for a dinner party at your house. These handmade flower escort cards are simply stunning. They can be custom made to match your color and/or theme. Each flower is handmade, and the banner with the name printed on it is included! Each flower is hand stained in coffee to give it the perfect vintage feel. We love these beauties and know you will too.

Where you can find these place cards:

The Price: $30.00 for a set of 5 + shipping
*Custom Orders are available.

Happy Etsy Shopping!

We are SO SO honored to be considered by Grace Ormonde Wedding Style.. but to be chosen, is priceless!  Thank you Erica for believing in us and in our vision for this five star, luxury platinum wedding.

We were brought on board months before this spectacular soiree with some vendors that packed a punch.. first and foremost, they had hired Munoz Photography to capture the event, brought in a killer band and our favorite, Derek Mack Band, one of the best Rabbi’s in Miami,  and topped it off with floral, draping, lighting, and catering by Gourmet Design Catering.  It was truly a night to remember.

The bride and groom wanted something over the top, and the bride was focused on having a night under the full moon, so guests could dance the night away by light of the moon and stars.  The color palette was based on the black tie event, and included black, white, slate gray, and silver shades. We decided on gorgeous rose linens from  Atlas Party Rental, and the most beautiful patterned glass charger plates, with satin napkins. The clear chiavari chairs made the tablescape complete.  The florals were over the top (just what the bride wanted)–loads of white hydrangea, white and pale pink roses, and over 10 sprigs of white orchids, draped over a enormous glass vase for the round tables, and a shorter variance on the long tables complete with plenty of flickering candles at the base.

The main entree selection had classic tastes:  Chilean Sea Bass and Filet Mignon, with the fun twist of “mini” appetizers at cocktail hour.  (The bride and groom LOVED the idea of mini sliders, mini shots of french fries and ketchup, mini potato knishes, mini crab cakes, mini mac and cheese cups, and so much more!)  The food continued topping the charts all night–since the bride is a sugar queen!  She insisted on having the BEST mini dessert bar and a bananas foster station.  Well, she got what she wanted, all right.. check out the pictures below…  Oh yea, and don’t forget the gorgeous cake we designed  to match the tablescape, complete with Swarovski crystal monogram cake topper!


There were so many amazing images… I will let them do the talking.  We were HONORED to be apart of this fabulous event and we wish Shani and Rich the best, always. (P.S.  Keep a look out for their little Yorkie–he was adorable and def stole the show as guests were greeted)
