Expectations vs. Reality

1. Access to the brand’s complete current collection and a selection of its most iconic wedding headpieces
Maria Elena Headpieces debuts two collections per year at New York Bridal Fashion Week. After NYBFW, the pieces are immediately ready for trunk shows. This means that brides have access to the collection as soon as it is completed. When a bridal store is not hosting a trunk show, they have a curated selection from each of their featured designers. However, during a trunk show, brides should expect to see the entire current collection as well as select timeless bridal headpieces. If you are a bride and have a special request for an accessory that you’ve seen on the Maria Elena Headpieces website or Instagram, be sure to let your bridal boutique know.

Once you are wearing your wedding gown or she has seen your dress, she will ask you a few questions to gain a better understanding of your personal style, how you will be wearing your hair on your wedding day, and what accessories you wear on a daily basis. Then the real fun begins. Gisele will pin your hair in a style that closely resembles hairstyle you want on your wedding day and suggest the bridal headpieces that most beautifully pair with your gown and personal style.
