Your wedding is filled with excitement but too often you can find yourself rushing madly from shop to shop and making arrangements one by one. Imagine how exciting it would be to have the chance to preview what your hair, makeup, and dress will all look like together. That is exactly what two premier Hamilton businesses provide. Propaganda Salon and Bridal Suite Boutique, both located in Briarwood Shopping Village on Kuser Road, realize how important it is to have a chance to see it all coming together before the big day.
These businesses have teamed together to present Sneak Peek Appointments, which allow a bride to see ahead of time how her chosen make-up and hairstyle will look with her dress. Brides are encouraged to bring all hair accessories and veil to the trial. Be pampered at Propaganda Salon and then enjoy a quick walk to Bridal Suite Boutique for a lux custom fitting. This is the ultimate First Look and a vital planning step.
Both owners are engaged to be married soon and sense personally how important the littlest detail is. “We are as invested in your wedding as we are in our own,” says Tiffany Takter of Bridal Suite Boutique.
Annie Jarosz opened Propaganda Salon and Barber six years ago. She is an educator for Sebastian/Wella, one of the top professional hair care manufacturers, inspiring fellow stylists in the latest trends. With NYC fashion week under her belt, she knows what an owner needs to succeed. In addition, she is certified in Cinderella Hair Extensions, Keratin Complex Treatment, and razor edge skills in cutting and coloring.
“We invite brides and guests to the salon for pampered primping on the big day. You have the salon to yourself, complete with champagne and refreshments. Bring your photographer to memorialize the moment. We also are happy to provide on-location services. It’s all about the bride’s wishes,” Jarosz says.
Propaganda Salon is expert at the full range of color, cut, makeup, and extensions, including lash extensions, the ultimate look, that will last from the wedding day and throughout the honeymoon. Says Jarosz: “We love giving each bride her unique look, from natural to glam and bold.”
In 2015 Tiffany Takter became the new owner of Bridal Suite Boutique, having taken over and revitalized The Bridal Suite, a Hamilton icon for 30 years. She has become the new face of bridal fashion, dedicated to making your dress shopping experience memorable and enjoyable.
Takter has always been in love with the world of bridal fashion. In fact, at age 17, she interned for the original Bridal Suite and went on to the Fashion Institute of Technology. After working in top bridal shops in New York City and London, she brought her extensive experience back to Hamilton. Her team includes two in-house seamstresses who do all the alterations on site. In addition, they work with designers who can completely customize your wedding dress. Changing the neckline, adding bling, extending your train, customizing the length, for example, guarantee your dress is unique.
Of special note, Bridal Suite Boutique only sells bridal gowns and bridesmaids dresses including options for your bridal shower and rehearsal dinner. This creates a non-stressful environment. No prom or communion shoppers and no mother of the bride. At Bridal Suite Boutique it’s all about the bride! They focus on their moment and leave looking and feeling amazing.
“At Bridal Suite Boutique, we guide you through the process and consult with you at every step, ensuring you always have personalized, one-on-one attention,” Takter says “We know the new directions that color is taking in bridal wear. Ivory is the new white, but our clients want blush, taupe, and gold tone dresses as well.”
Bridal Suite Boutique and Propaganda Salon make a powerful team, combining the two most dramatic elements of an entrance. “We want to ensure you will walk down the aisle looking your absolute best,” says Takter.
“Indeed,” adds Jarosz, ”having two teams, experts in their respective fields, on your side will bolster your confidence that you look your absolute best.”
