Hair trends for the “bride” to be – Beautiful Bride’s Philly – Philadelphia Wedding and Event Planner – Angela MALICKI events

Ladies are you looking for that perfect, trendy hairstyle for your wedding day? Than look no further! Dana Perisa, owner and her assistant Maggie Armstrong of Beautiful Brides Philly tells all! Take a look at our Q & A! Dana and her team are mobile hair and make up artists that come to you for any special event. BBP work speaks for itself, Dana and her team are professional, on trend and will make you feel like a princess. We recently worked with them on a event for Wish Upon a Wedding (a non profit organization) for Kelly and Michelle

Q: What are brides asking for?

A: Brides are asking for pretty much everything! We see a wide range of styles based on the brides personality. However, we do see a lot of half up half down styles and up-dos that incorporate braids and a lot of texture.

Q: Are classic hairstyles coming back?

A: A popular trend is to take a classic bridal hairstyle, and add a twist to it. Overall, brides are leaning towards a much more casual and easy-going look, rather then the “over done” – so that may mean instead of the slicked back look, pulling a few pieces of hair to frame the face.

Q: Do you see more up do’s or long curls? Or other?

A: It’s split evenly between the down-do and the up-do — it really depends greatly on the bride.

Q: What are mothers of the bride and groom asking for?

A: They usually gravitate towards a simple, but elegant blow out, or a classic hairstyle such as a french twist. There is no need to mess with what works!

Q: What hairstyle tends to go with certain types of dresses? (i.e. mermaid dresses look nice with long flowing hair)

A: The brides gown will reflect her personality, which will in turn reflect what kind of style she wants for her wedding day. If someone has chosen a big, Cinderella inspired dress, then her hair will probably reflect that drama and elegance. A bride who opts for a more casual, shift inspired frock, may go for a more casual down-do full of loose curls.

Q: Are headbands and pearls used in the hair frequently?

A: Headbands are a new addition to the already dizzying array of hair accessories that a bride can choose from, but we do see them. Sometimes, after the ceremony is over, the bride may opt to change out of her veil and into a more casual hair accessory.  Pearls are classic, so for a bride that has opted for a more traditional look may want to add a few pins with pearl to their ‘do.

Q: What is the most common hairstyle that you’ve done?

A: A common style we see is when the hair is gently pulled back to the crown of the head, curled, and pinned to create a mound of curls that is both flattering, and appropriate for aspecial occasion. Often we also see brides and bridal attendant request a half up half down look with romantic curls.

Q: Which celebrity hair style do brides want?

A: We see a lot of images of Eva Longoria, Jennifer Lawerence and Carrie Underwood.

Q: What can be done if any of the bridal parties hair do’s come undone?  

A: The hair styles we do never come undone! But in the rare case that they do, our stylists always leave some bobby pins and often recommend the bride have easy access to a can of hair spray. The bridal party member in question can opt for two options — pinning the curls back in place, or completely disassembling the updo and transforming it into an elegant down-do.

Q: What is your favorite hair do?

A: We love a classic, vintage inspired up-do. Something with some volume and structure, ala Grace Kelly or Audrey Hepburn.

Angela + Christopher – Sneak Peek Part 1-Atrium at the Curtis Center- Philadelphia Wedding Planner- Angela MALICKI Events- Titus Print

This summer we had the pleasure of working with Angela and Chris day of on their glamorous chic wedding! We’ve known Angela (via Eric) for years and knew when her and Chris met in 09′ , this was a match made in heaven. We were honored when they asked us to design their wedding stationery and assist with Day of. We started our day at the Hotel Monaco where the bride was sipping champagne getting pampered before slipping into her stunning beaded gown.  The bridesmaids looked fabulous in their long satin black gowns, completed with perfect pink bouquets designed by Petah Bashano Flowers.  Once Angela put on her Jimmy Choo’s , we were good to go and we made our way to the  Cathedral Basillica of Saints Peter and Paul in Philadelphia. After  the ceremony Eric and I headed to the reception at the Atrium at the Curtis Center where we began set up of all the gorgeous details the couple worked on.  The Reception was breathtaking with a black, white, and pink theme, customized all the way to the “Eat. Drink. And Be Married” napkins found at the bar.

Dianna + Phil – The Yellow House at Willowdale – Chaddsford, PA -Philadelphia Wedding and Event Planner – Angela MALICKI Events

Like all our couples, you grow a bond to them like family, with Dianna and Phil, it was a strong bond that will be forever. Their wedding was picture perfect that June afternoon. The sun was shining, there is a calming breeze, and you are in the middle of a green field surrounded by nothing but open space and a beautiful yellow house (and cows).    Angela was super excited for the planning of this wedding because Dianna is truly an amazing woman and was so much fun to work with! She hit every angle of this “Country -Chic” wedding from fabulous cowboy boots to rustic window pane centerpieces.

The bridal party looked amazing. Dianna’s wedding dress was from Jennifer’s of Hockessin, DE. It was Modern Trousseau “May” with a Tony Federicci birdcage veil and feather headpiece. She looked absolutely stunning and her cowgirl boots from Ariat truly expressed her desire for a rustic chic wedding

I love this pic of her mother Sharon, putting the finishing touches to Dianna’s look. Sharon’s dress was purchased from Van Cleve Pavilion in Paoli.

Her bridal party wore BHLDN short Beribonned green and yellow dresses and cowboy boots! The combination of the two colors was perfect for each other. Dianna and her bridal party completed their look with help from Hair Stylist Amanda D’Andrea and DUO Make-Up Artistry! Their hair and make-up looked simple, elegant, and everyone looked beautiful!

arrangements, elegant lighting, and sophisticated table settings.  Setting up for this wedding was a blast. The linens were beautiful and matched everything perfectly. Eventions Productions provided remarkable lighting which added a romantic feel to the venue as well as the beautiful floral arrangements from Sweet Pea of Jennersville. .  The groomsmen looked just as good too, of course!!! The ceremony and reception was held at The Yellow House of Willowdale. The grounds were romantic and elegant and meshed perfectly with Dianna and Phil’s country-theme wedding! Other amazing details included a vintage typewriter for escort cards and was used as a “Guest Book” where guests were able to type their wishes for Dianna and Phil! There was also a family board, designed by Madikay Designs, which has the couple’s name and year along with words in various fonts to describe their family. On each table, small wooden chalkboard signs were used at table numbers, which were designed by Crafts by Joyice (ETSY). Tables were named after all different types of beer and wine! The favors were perfect for the theme of this wedding. Dianna and Phil filled small Muslin bags with birdseed. Written on the front of each bag was the phrase “All You Need Is Love,” designed by Plantables and Paper. Save the Dates, Invitations, Beer Labels, and Thank You Cards were fabulous and designed by Beth Ann Horwitz of Newark, DE. Each and every detail truly added to this rustic chic and modern weddding! To top it off, Phillip, a home brewer who goes by Infinite Craft Brew, made a delicious Wedding Edition Session Amber Ale beer to celebrate the big day! The label on the beer bottles had a picture of Dianna and Phil’s matching wedding bands! Photographer, Rae Barnes, was able to capture the unforgettable moments throughout the night! The entertainment provided by No Macarena really set the mood for Diana and Phil’s first dance and for the rest of the entire evening! Guests were able to enjoy the wonderful entertainment as well as the delicious dinner provided by Perfect Settings Catering as well as the sweet desserts from Bing’s Bakery. Here are a few of our favorite pictures from Dianna & Phil’s Wedding! Thank you, Rae Barnes, for beautifully capturing the best moments!

Destination Aloha, In Philly? – Philadelphia Wedding and Event Planner – Angela MALICKI events

Close your eyes… think lounging on the beach in your own cabana, sipping on your Mai Tai with those cute little umbrella straws hanging over the side. Can you hear the ocean waves rolling onto the beach? The warm water barely coming up to your toes, which are now slowly digging deeper and deeper into that soft, powder-like sand. Got that image in your head?

Now open your eyes. As your staring at your computer screen in the corner of your work cubicle realizing how nice it would be to get away, I have one question for you- who wouldn’t want to go to Hawaii for vacation this year? Oh, can’t afford the $1,500, 24 hour round trip, plane tickets? Don’t have time to take off a week from your over-demanding job? Suddenly all relatives are MIA when needing someone to watch your three, darling children?

What’s the next best thing? Why, the Hawaii Islands of Aloha themed Philadelphia Flower Show of course! Starting at $27 a pop, tickets are much more affordable than that 12 hour plane ticket (and the commute should be a little easier for you too). And the best part is, the whole family can come! If that doesn’t do it for you, know that all proceeds from the show help out the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society. Taking a mini Hawaiian vacation AND helping a good cause? Well that’s just a win/win for everyone.

The Philadelphia Flower Show truly has something for everyone. Doors of the Pennsylvania Convention Center open Sunday, March 4 at 8am and close Sunday, March 11 at 6pm. Sprinkled throughout the week are “themed nights” ranging from LGBT Night Out on Monday to Girls Night Out later in the week on Thursday. You can even meet Bethenny Frankel  on Saturday and try out some of her new Skinny Girl Cocktails. For those of us who have kids, during the weekends are events geared to a younger crowd, and how about the men in our lives?? Well for them, the ultimate Man Cave was created including table games sponsored by SugarHouse Casino, virtual competitions of Tiger Wood’s PGA, and projection screens broadcasting Sixers and Flyers games (surround sound included).

And guess who will be attending Wedding Wednesday? Of course Angela and her crew wouldn’t miss an event like this! Sponsored by Philadelphia Wedding, this event is held Wednesday from 5:30-8:30pm. Make sure to check out our table display, featuring custom-made stationary from Angela’s new line, Titus Print! There will be champagne, complimentary appetizers, and of course all types of flower displays, as well as DIY Bouquet stations hosted by Philadelphia Wedding’s Carrie Denny, and flower arranging demonstrations by Flowers by David and Robertson’s Flowers.

Hope to see you there!

xoxo

Holiday decorating with Mother Nature’s goods – Philadelphia Wedding and Event Planner – Angela MALICKI events

The winter holidays are a wonderful time to decorate your home, both for entertaining and to make those cold gray days a little brighter.  Many of us make a trip to the grocery store or perhaps the florist shop to pick out some roses, mums or carnations for the holiday centerpiece.  But why not try something different this year?  Something much more unique, affordable and sustainable?  With more than 80% of the cut flowers sold in the US today being imported from other countries, usually Columbia and Ecuador, and with those same flowers being literally drenched in pesticides (to ensure there are no bugs on them that would get them tossed out at the customs inspection when they’re unloaded from the plane), it’s a great time to look closer to home for your floral materials.This holiday season, take a trip into your backyard (or your neighbor’s, with permission of course) to trim the tree in a different way.  Both bare branches and evergreen boughs are perfect for simply elegant displays in the home.  So are pine cones, seed pods, perfect fallen leaves and other botanical tidbits.  To dress them up a bit with holiday sparkle, try spray painting them gold, silver, copper or white and sprinkle with a bit of glitter.  Since these wintery botanicals aren’t as delicate as fresh flowers, your hard work will last much longer, and you can think outside the vase.  Try placing white glitter dusted pine cones under a glass bell jar for a delicate and seasonal display.  If you just can’t be without fresh flowers (I’m right there with you), try your hand at forcing bulbs indoors.  Narcissus and Amaryllis are the most widely available in florist shops, garden centers and even hardware stores.  Choose a beautiful wide low bowl that fits your decor, fill with pebbles, and sprout your bulbs to bloom over the winter, providing not only long-lasting color but delicious fragrance too.
Love ‘n Fresh Flowers is a petite, sustainably managed, urban flower farm and full service event floral design studio in Philadelphia dedicated to creating fresh textural arrangements exclusively with locally grown flowers.  Love ‘n Fresh focuses on eco-lovely weddings and other events with a vintage flair.   Their flowers are also sold at area specialty grocery stores and through a fantastic Flower CSA.  Jennie Love, owner and designer for Love ‘n Fresh, is passionate about using locally grown flowers  in unexpectedly unique and elegant arrangements. Trained both as a grower and floral designer at Longwood Gardens , she loves educating customers about the beauty and value of locally grown flowers. In every aspect of the business, Love ‘n Fresh manages the whole creative process .
