Guest Post: An Exquisite and Pink Wedding Event

Welcome guest blogger, Jenna Laporta, Senior Marketing and Event Planning student with interests in fashion at Rider University. I recruited her from Dr. Aaron Moore's Event Planning class to attend The Pink Veil Event in Millburn: a wedding industry preview hosted by Exquisite Bride. She was lucky enough to get a complimentary hair and makeup treatment! Here is her review of the day.

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Exquisite Bride hosted a Pink Veil event that pulled a to-do list of vendors for brides to visit. There were vendors from Oh So Fab event planners, Cartier showcased sparkling round cut diamonds with gorgeous diamond wedding bands for her and detailed wedding bands for him. Sandals Resort displayed new destination wedding packages (themed by Martha Stewart), tuxedo services, bridesmaid and mother of the bride and groom gowns and much, much more!

As for the bridal gowns, the bridal salon displayed beautiful gowns from big ball room styles to form fitting simple gowns, some with intricate lace, some topped with layered tulle, and even gowns with embellished belts. The trend for this winter is to wear what you like and feel amazing! And don’t skip a beat, most brides still opt for the long veils and some make their trains longer for a more dramatic walk down the aisle. The Fountain Spa and Salon provided new looks for bridal hair; from up-dos, and braids to the soft curls of a destination wedding.

Besides the delicious treats provided at the salon, another sweet treat was having celebrity make up artist Khruaira round out the event with her team showing brides the most modern make up for their special day. I was lucky enough to try the new airbrush technique, which is very light and even smudge proof. The airbrushing takes place after the traditional bridal makeup (shades of mauve, pinks, and purples for this season) is applied. The airbrush system comes in nine shades and can be mixed to anyone’s color. Best part is the makeup lasts for twelve hours and brides are able to reserve appoints with Khruaira, her team and even book the night before and still look fabulous the next day!
