BRIDAL AND FASHION JEWELRY FROM BIJOU TRéSOR

This week we’re excited to share with you Bijou Trésor Jewelry Boutique. Originally a Los Angeles based brick-and-mortar jewelry boutique, Bijou Trésor has since grown to open a second platinum showroom in Beverly Hills and an online jewelry store that carries an eclectic and beautiful array of fashion and bridal jewelry.

Bijou Trésor’s fashion jewelry includes bright, bold, lavish pieces shimmering with color and Swarovski crystals, all designed to add the perfect amount of sparkle to every special occasion. But it’s their bridal jewelry collection that’s particularly stunning, adding an air of traditional elegance to their typical edgy and colorful fashion-forward style.

Here at Harsanik.com we picked a few of our favorite pieces from Bijou Trésor’s  Bridal Collection. The first is a Swarovski Hair Comb, and this one of a kind hairpiece is a perfect accessory for any bride to be. We love how the emerald cut center stone is surrounded with clusters of Swarovski crystals.

CRAZY MARRIAGE PROPOSAL VIDEO

Talk about a crazy marriage proposal! This guy Josh falls 4 stories off a building to propose to his girlfriend!

Poor girl - she almost has a heart attack thinking her boyfriend is about to die!

It's definitely an entertaining video, and it's getting a lot of plays on YouTube. But it turns out this video is fake. Looks like they created this video as an advertisement for a drink (Neuro). If you watch the video carefully, you'll notice that everyone in the video is drinking the same Neuro drink.

A BRIDE'S STORY: OUR WEDDING

*REPOST*

This is Marineh and I am one of the co-founders of Harsanik. On August 7, 2010, I was so blessed to get married to the most amazing man. We had a beautiful Armenian wedding at Taglyan and it turned out to be a magical day!

Throughout the past year, I shared my wedding planning adventures in my blog called A Bride's Story, including picking the venue, the dress, the food and cake tastings, and other fun wedding stories. Now, a few months after the wedding, I am excited to share with you all the photo and video highlights from our wedding day over a series of blogs!

A BRIDE'S STORY: MY HAIR, MAKEUP & HEADPIECE

Hi again - this is Marineh, co-founder of Harsanik.com, the #1 guide for planning an Armenian wedding! Often times, brides email me asking for suggestions for hair & makeup artists, as well as ideas for hair accessories. There are many great vendors listed on Harsanik.com under the Hair, Makeup & Beauty and Bridal Accessories categories. So I recommend browsing through our directory to find the right vendor who fits your style to cater to your Armenian wedding.

I’m happy to share with you who I chose to work with for my wedding hair & makeup, and my unique headpiece. Edward Jacob was my hair & makeup artist, and he works in the Capelli Salon located on North Brand in Glendale, CA. I first tried Edward Jacobs for my engagement party, and I fell in love with his work! He does a phenomenal job with both hair and makeup, and he focuses on making you look naturally beautiful.

After my engagement, I went back to Edward for my bridal shower, and of course my wedding day. Edward was so amazing to work with! He is a fun, young guy and he knows how to make you feel relaxed on your special day. He is also very creative with hair, and he was able to come up with a beautiful style to go along with my beautiful headpiece!

Speaking of my headpiece, I was so thrilled to have picked Addicted 2B Jeweled to design my wedding headpiece! Knarik from Addicted did an amazing job designing a unique and stunning 3-piece headpiece customized to my preference. When I met with Knarik, I told her I was looking for something a little different. She showed me a picture of her new bridal couture line that she was working on, and I immediately fell in love with the style. I worked with Knarik to customize the headpiece to be exactly what I wanted: a 3-piece design, each shaped like a leaf, wrapped in chiffon fabric, draped with large Swarowski crystals, and touched up with a bit of lace.  The headpiece was beautiful and I had so many people all day asking or commenting about my headpiece from Addicted 2B Jeweled.

Thank you both Edward Jacob and Knarik from Addicted 2B Jeweled for the amazing work!

UPDATE:
My headpiece is not like a traditional Armenian headpiece. On August 20, 2011, Kim Kardashian wore what is being referred to as an "Armenian headpiece" on her wedding day. Kim's headpiece was beautiful and very traditional, with tear-shaped diamonds hanging over her forehead.  Check out our Bridal Accessories category to find many vendors that can re-create Kim's look for your wedding day!
