BEHIND-THE-SCENES WITH THE BHLDN STYLISTS
Oh the life of a BHLDN stylist- From the outside looking in it's all sunshine and roses but they work hard, really hard. Sure they get to play with dreamy wedding dresses and crystal bridal accessories, but they also put in long hours answering customer inquiries, working with store staff, shuffling paperwork (it is a desk job after all), and carefully measuring and fitting each product to different body types so they can complete all the aforementioned tasks. There are endless to-dos to complete at their perfectly styled desks each day. But, of course it's the fun stuff we want to hear about...
Every month or so the web stylists gather up the gowns, dresses, and accessories we're preparing to launch and hold a day long fit session. I've started tagging along on some of these and capturing the rare behind-the-scenes moments we all die over. The tulle! The lace! The perfect pair of shoes! It's exhausting work for them but a bridal fan dream. Here's a look at some of the images I've captured for our most recent launches (the Fall 2015 Collection is on-site now!):
The stylists try to imagine and reimagine each dress for all types of wedding venues- courthouses, city lofts, rustic woodland paradises, destination weddings, churches, vineyards, backyards...all of them. It's their job to anticipate the questions our brides will ask even before they ask them, and to challenge the popular trends of the day to encourage our customer to be the best versions of themselves on their big day. It's a big job and I'm constantly amazed at their commitment and love for all things bridal. A love that includes BHLDN, but also transcends it. If you're ever in need of wedding advice, I highly recommend the BHLDN stylists free services. Oh right, I forgot to mention they do all of this for free- as if they weren't awesome enough. - b.
