Wynwood Life Festival Remember

Dear TBP brides,

This past April, The Bridal Project team had the opportunity to participate in Wynwood's Life Festival Runway Show, a local event, featuring edgy high-end couture. The event was hosted by many talented people, thanks to the SWARM agency. Wynwood's Festival is a 3-day event celebrated once a year, that fuses food, music, art and fashion.Those who joined us had the opportunity to enjoy cocktails, visit local pop-up shops, and trunk shows, while listening to live music and being inspired by the local fashion trends. 

 
 

The Bridal Project presented our exclusive in store designer Carol Hannah, who is known for her whimsical and original wedding gowns, that combines different materials and colors. Her vibrant unique collection of bridal dresses was inspired by the modern bride, with colorful styles, that give us a hint of what Miami is. Check out some pictures and videos of the Wynwood Life event. 

The incredible experience was accompanied by an amazing partnership by “She is She”, the Miami fashion blogger combining fashion with self-esteem. We had twelve amazing models on stage, all  parading different styles, cultures, and nationalities, which made the experience unique. We would like to give a special thanks to 'She is She' and all the models for an amazing collaboration and for having shared this journey with us. 

We appreciate the support of Gerhard Rodriguez, our amazing photographer and videographer, for the show. He captured these amazing moments during the preparation and the event itself, so that we will never forget this memorable day. Brides, if you are interested in contacting him for your wedding day, for pictures or video, don 't hesitate to get in touch with him or to get more information about his special packages, exclusively only for our TBP brides.

 
 

Special thanks to everyone who is involved in this amazing journey: She is She, Cata Pinzon, Stevens Bartkowski, Cosmixmakeupschool and to our amazing models.

7 Tips and Tricks for your Bridal Beauty Routine

Hey TBP brides,

This post is about beauty and as a bride to be, certainly, you want to look impeccable not only on your wedding day. Below you can find 7 tips and tricks, The Bridal Project' s team has put together during a private makeup class with MACA SOTO. Maca is a renowned Venezuelan makeup artist, based in Miami, whose clients include; Chiqui Delgado,  Sasha Fitness, and Michelle Lewin. She is a real professional and will bring out the natural beauty in every woman. TBP brides, she will make you shine.

 
 

HYDRATE YOUR SKIN - Especially in summer, the warm weather dries out your skin. It is necessary to hydrate and prepare your skin before applying makeup. Look for water boosting products, don't go for the heavy base but instead for a gel. And of course don' t forget to drink a lot of water.  

PREPARE YOUR SKIN - Always start with a primer for a flawless canvas. It will prepare the skin and will help your makeup stay on longer.

CHOSE THE CORRECT COLOR - Choose the base, corrector, and powder according to the color of your skin. Match the color to the tone of your neck, chest, and forehead. Discover what color suits you best; yellow-orange based. Once you find it, stick to it in all of your base products. 

GET YOUR SKIN BRONZED - Give your face a little touch of sun. With a large brush apply your bronzer or contour to the hallows of your cheek, on the upper forehead, and on your chin. Use preferably a matte bronzer, so that your face does not look too shiny.

LET YOUR SKIN GLOW - Use the illuminator for the upper areas of your face, to get a more natural look. Do avoid applying it on your T- zone. Apply instead right on your cheek bones, possibly on your nose to make it look straighter, and slightly under your nose and chin to make the lips look bigger. 

LESS IS MORE - If you want to go for natural beauty, forget the smokey eye look. Instead, use lighter and natural colors which go well with your skin tone. Bring your makeup to a perfection by using an illuminator, bronzer, and perfect eye brows. 

USE TRENDY COLORS - Metallic colors are in, so have fun with them. Karat gold, true pewter, copper rose or aged bronze? Tell us what is your favorite and don' t forget less is more.

We have also put together a selection of products we absolutely LOVE and think you too should try. Contact us for more information or if you are interested for a private makeup session. TBP Brides you won't regret it!

Anna Campbell Trunk Show Experience

Dear TBP brides,

This post will be all about Anna Campbell and her breathtaking vintage wedding dresses. The Bridal Project is honored to have the opportunity to carry Anna Campbell collections exclusively in our store and bring their uniqueness to Miami. As a store, we admire the fact that we get the opportunity to provide brides with something extraordinarily different. We have the chance to show brides near and far something different and this is all thanks to Anna Campbell.

As a team, The Bridal Project had the opportunity to travel and work at the Anna Campbell’s headquarters. We got to know the brand inside and out in order to transmit to TBP brides every detail of Ana Campbell’s work.

The Bridal Project team thanks, all brides who came out during our first Ana Campbell Trunk Show. Our brides had the exclusive opportunity to see almost the entire selection of Anna Campbell´s gowns. This included a trying on the session, where the brides were able to feel and experience these vintage, modern wedding dresses. However, if you did not have the chance to come out and see us don’t worry. With every TBP appointment, the experience is unlike no other. We will accommodate any request you may have to make your experience worth your while. You can book an appointment with us right here: 

The Bridal Project team would like to once again thank all the brides who spent this beautiful moment with us. We had a wide selection of the Anna Campbell´s collection available that weekend as well as many accessories. Champagne was passed out to make the experience that much better. To top it off we had a media/press session with the top professionals from industry. Our guests had the chance to get first look into Anna Campbell’s latest wedding dress selection. A professional photographer was in the store providing guests with a look into a real photo shoot where the models were wearing the dresses. It was an unforgettable night. You can see our models in action.

Opening Party Remember

Dear TBPbrides,

We are proud to present our first Carol Hannah Trunk Show video. The bridal project had the opportunity to be surrounded by many talented and inspiring people. Beautiful brides with their family and friends, the best local vendors (mentioned below), and our fabulous TBP team.  We especially would like to dedicate this video to all the brides who came to visit the store during the first quarter of being opened. We really appreciated all of the support during the beginning stages. Thank you for letting us be part of your wedding preparation journey. TBP is very grateful you chose us as your non-traditional wedding dress destination.  

Those of you who attended the Trunk Show got the opportunity to see our exclusive showroom. This was located in the breathtaking, iconic Dorissa building of Miami. The incredible experience was accompanied by a glass of champagne, a unique selection of wedding dresses, and original accessories. The best part of the experience is that the designer Carol Hannah herself was present during the Trunk Show as well as the opening party. To add to the unique experience we had MG Events Catering who provided special tapas, Dj Grant from Ganon Studios who made the atmosphere feel lively with his unique music and Affinitycreative made this incredible event happen. Thank you!

Thalita Pascual, exclusively for The Bridal Project

Hey TBP Bride,

It’s official and the is date set. You are getting married! :) What an incredible experience it is, but along the way the stress kicks in. Expectations and all the work can overwhelm a bride’s state of mind. Yet you should be enjoying and having fun all the way through and down the aisle. 

But wait, there is some good news here. The Bridal Project, in collaboration with Thalita Pascual, certified PT & Fitness Nutrition Specialist, have set the guidelines below, exclusively for all our #TBPbrides.  After all it’s the most important day of your life and we believe you should cherish and celebrate it, every step of the way.

15877324_729252263897352_5816605532445736960_n.jpg

EXERCISE- This is a MUST. Exercise will give you more energy, boost happiness, make you sleep better, increase self confidence, and increase your immunity so when the big day comes you are ready to Rock & ROLL!!!

MEDITATE- This is a great way to calm your mind. It nurtures higher levels of clarity, harmony, and joy. Meditation can be done in so many different ways and if it’s something new to you, I advise to start it off short and simple, and with guidance. Search for meditation groups or a workshop to get you started.

EAT RIGHT- Stress levels and a proper diet are closely related. When you’re overwhelmed, you often forget to eat well, instead you reach out for sugary, fatty foods as an escape. Try to avoid this and plan your meals ahead of time. A diet that consists in wholesome foods have been shown to reduce the symptoms of stress and provide an overall better quality of life.

DRINK HERBAL TEA- It’s full of antioxidants, improves immune system, relaxes the mind and soul, and helps with digestion. It’s a great way to detox. Get thirsty and drink it up.

CALL A FRIEND- Think of “a friend”. The one that will be there for you ALL along the way. It’s important to have a support system, during this special time, so that when it gets a little rough you know you’re not alone.

TREAT YOURSELF- Go get a massage, pedicure, and/or eyebrows. Treating yourself to experiences that will make you feel pampered and looking good will boost your confidence levels, and we all know nothing gets in the way of a confident woman.

LAUGH IT OFF- Laughter releases endorphins that decreases levels of the stress-causing hormones cortisol and adrenaline. Laughing tricks your nervous system into making you happy. So don’t be shy and laugh your way through.
