A Bridal Shower Look by Nordstrom Mission Viejo, California

April showers bring May flowers. Well, at BHL we have a little saying of our own: Bridal Showers bring wedding flowers. Wedding season has arrived, and it is our favorite season yet. Engagement parties, bridal gown shopping, and all the fabulous detail planning for the big day. We’ve kind of been bursting at the seams with excitement over all the wedding season details.  One of our absolute favorite wedding loves is the fun filled bridal shower.  You know how we feel about Nordstrom Mission Viejo here at BHL (we love them) and you know how we feel about wedding details (it’s the best), so when the two combine for a crazy beautiful fashion statement? We are beyond excited.

It’s the kind of bridal beauty that’s worthy of some serious swoon, and Nordstrom Mission Viejo has it all for us. You can find all the jaw-dropping gorgeous details that Nordstrom Mission Viejo created for a fabulous bridal shower look. Right here.

Personal Stylist, Susie Grossman styled this beautiful bride with an angelic yellow, lace detailed Maggie London dress.  For a pop of color, coral colored Charles David “Icon” sandals were added.   We are in love with this adorable dress, and those shoes. Stunning!

To top it all off with a pair of darling Kate Spade Earrings and a gorgeous headband by Tasha, is just perfect.

To complete the yellow laced romantic ensemble, beauty stylist Sarah Zaret creates a fun bridal shower makeup look. She chooses the gorgeous coral color as her inspiration. Coral crush is all the rage!  It exudes happiness and sunshine, and looks great on everyone.  To create the coral crush look, Sarah used Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Brick and cream blush for cheeks and eyes.  For lips she used the new Glossy Lip Stain from YSL, and for a bold brow look,  she used Anastasia.

A Getting Ready Bridal Look by Nordstrom Mission Viejo, California

Everyday I get to write about hot wedding trends and all the amazing details for all things wedding. Sometimes I have to pinch myself, as I can’t believe it is my job to find the freshest and newest wedding trends and share them.  Some of the hottest trends I see are in fashion, style, and wardrobe. So, when you fuse them with all the pretty wedding things, you have a hot and  fabulous combo. Which brings me to the latest and greatest news for all of you wedding fashionistas: One of our favorite fashion spots, Nordstrom Mission Viejo will now be featured on BHL. We are in love with what Nordstrom Mission Viejo offers for their brides and their bridal party and guests. With exceptional service and the greatest fashion merchandise, Nordstrom Mission Viejo’s personal and beauty stylists are ready to assist brides and their friends in finding the perfect look.

We wanted to kick things off with the Bride’s “Getting Ready” look. Get ready to be inspired!

Beauty Stylist, Sarah Zaret has put together a Glowing Bride Look. In order to create a glowing look, she used some amazing illuminating products. First, for a glowing skin effect Sarah used La Mer, Laura Mercier, Armani and MAC products. She really  wanted to give a natural shimmering eye look, so she chose a Bobbi Brown eye shadow.  The pinched rosy cheek was created with the new Halo blush from Smashbox.  Sarah chose a YSL lip product for a blushing lip that’s long lasting.
