A note from Andrea (owner of Bella Bleu Bridal) about why she adores Sara Gabriel's work:

In my search for a veil designer to showcase, I was in awe when I found Sara Gabriel. Bella Bleu proudly features Sara Gabriel Veiling and Headpieces because the quality and craftsmanship of Sara's pieces are meticulous and unmatched. Her designs are very unique, feminine, and stylish, appealing to most every bride. As a business owner, I personally enjoy working with Sara not only for her strong attention to detail and timely communication and delivery, but the fact that she always has the bride in mind and wants to make sure that every custom order will be everything the bride is envisioning. The packaging is an exquisite signature Sara Gabriel box which protects the pieces for generations to come. She truly cares! Sara shares Bella Bleu's vision of providing the bride with an exceptional experience! 

And now, a little Q&A with the designer herself!!  Sara Gabriel :)

Style Unveiled:  What has most inspired your bridal artwork for the last season?
Sara Gabriel:  Art-deco, and Hollywood regency style...have you seen the trailer for the Great Gasby movie that is coming out this fall? Drool!!!
Style Unveiled:  If a bride is wearing one of your headpieces with one of your veils, do you suggest she tone down the rest of her look (as far as a large necklace or big earrings)?  How many bridal accessories would you say are too many?  Or is there such a thing?
Sara Gabriel:  That's a good, and tricky, question. There is no simple rule, you just need to trust yourself to be able to detect when you've crossed the line between "just enough" and "too much". 
Style Unveiled:  What do you believe the upcoming bridal accessories to look and feel like?  What should we expect from Sara Gabriel in the coming season?
Sara Gabriel:  Brides are beginning to move away from the French net fascinator craze that has defined bridal accessories over the past 5 seasons. We are seeing a return to traditional, long veils, which I love! Brides are also moving toward "estate" pieces with lots of Swarovski crystal and away from silk flowers. Our 2013 collection reflects these trends. 
Style Unveiled:  If you had to choose one color to wear as an accent with a bridal gown, what would it be (first color that comes to mind! wink wink)?  Now that you've named the color, why did you choose it?
Sara Gabriel:  Black. Cream with accents of black looks so sharp, and can definitely capture the upscale bohemian look that is dominating bridal right now.  
Style Unveiled:  Your pieces are so girly and so feminine!  It's all about feeling pretty when a bride is shopping your site.  Do you consider yourself a girly-girl?  Is this what you typically dress and style yourself as in every day life?
Sara Gabriel:  Haha! I'm a mom of two, so more often than not I'm in jeans and a tee-shirt. However, when I travel for trunk shows, I prefer a  mid-50's look...lots of full skirts, vintage necklines and shoes with bows!!
Style Unveiled:  What is your best wedding planning advice you can share with our readers?
Sara Gabriel:  Be uniquely YOU! Don't give to much attention to the wishes and desires of other people, especially when it comes to how you will look on your day. It is YOUR day and the only two opinions that matter are yours and your fiances : )
