Hairstyles For Your Big Day

You have your groom, your ring, and your dress all picked out. Your hair – that’s another story. Avoid having a bad hair day on your wedding by making sure you have a vision of your hairstyle that goes along with the theme and style of the rest of your wedding. We have picked out the best kind of hairdo for each kind of wedding dress. 

If you have an A-line or full ball gown, curls compliment it’s romantic silhouette. A curly up-do can be accented with a delicate clip, or a long, cascade of curls can be paired with a rhinestone headband to match the princess-ey nature of your gown.

 We have these amazing hairpins in store by Erica Koesler:

Mermaid gowns are flattering on most figures and are reminiscent of old Hollywood glamor. A side swept up-do with a vintage broach-turned-hair accessory is a great way to compliment the style of this gown.

Sheath dresses and empire-waist dresses are perfect for the bride who wants to look effortlessly chic. Braided up dos are a way to look styled but not too polished, perfect for a destination or rustic themed wedding.

The bride who chooses a tea-length dress for her wedding is not afraid to break tradition and has a style all her own. Birdcage veils make a great compliment to the short length of the dress, and a funky, stand-out hair style will be another way to show off your unique personality. Check out this featured wedding by our in house bridal accessory designer, Jaxie:

Not sure what style you are looking for? Join us July 18th for Bridal Styling Night at Miss Ruby! Our amazing local designers, Jaxie and Elan Couture Jewelry will be in store to help accessorize you from head to toe! RSVP:

Find The PERFECT Gift For Your Bridal Party!

Bridesmaids Gifts –
Through thick and thin, in sickness and in health, for better or for worse. No, were not talking about your husband. We’re referring to those equally important people in your life, who will be there to laugh with you, cry with you, and even wear a bright pink dress for you. We’re talking about your bridesmaids.

For all they have done for you in the months preceding the wedding day, an unforgettable bridesmaid’s gift is a wonderful way to show your appreciation. Whether you have one or ten bridesmaids, we scoured for some affordable and memorable gifts for your girls.
             A personalized piece of jewelry is a way to make your bridesmaids each feel special on your wedding day. MiNiBelle  has personalized initial monogram necklaces with a freshwater pearl accent. It’s a delicate accessory that will look as great walking down an isle as it will with a casual outfit:


S       Sticking with the theme of personalization, a unique way to celebrate your friendship is with lilmisskaties Latitude and Longitude leather bracelet. You can personalize the coordinates on each bracelet, allowing you to commemorate the location of your wedding, your hometowns, or the place where you and your friend first met.

3.       If your girls are the kind who prefers a night out on the town over a quiet night in, personalized bar wear doesn’t have to be just for the groomsmen. Engraved wine glasses like the ones from glassgirljen are as useful as they are thoughtful. Pair this with a bottle of your favorite wine and a custom label from casandria for a perfect gift set.

Do you have an idea for a unique bridesmaid gift? Let us know what you’re buying or what went over well at your wedding!

A day at the boutique

Every day at the boutique is different. Whether we are blogging, shopping for styles for the upcoming season, researching trends or working with customers we are always facing something new, exciting & different when we come to work!  We thought it might be fun to share with you every once and a while what we are up to here at the boutique. Kind of like a little glimpse into our daily life at the boutique!

Recently we had a wonderful woman named Jodie stop in looking for something unique - her 25th anniversary party was coming up and she needed something that said “bride” but stuck with the easy, beachy theme of her party.

After trying on a few different options, she stepped out of the dressing room in a tea-length Aria silk shantung dress, and it was obvious to everyone she had found a perfect dress for the occasion. “I glow in this one” she said.

After finding the dress, it was on to finding the perfect accessories. She added a beaded pearl Pronovias belt and a pearl and feather hair accessory by Jaxie to give the dress a subtle sparkle. Everything came together perfectly – so perfectly, in fact, she purchased her dress and accessories right off of the rack, and was able to walk out of Miss Ruby with a complete outfit in hand.

We had such a great time working with Jodie and wish her all the best with her 25th anniversary! And we'd love to help you out too! If you are looking for a dress for your special occasion, all of us at Miss Ruby Boutique are happy to help you find it. Remember it doesn't have to be a traditional wedding! We have women in all stages of their lives visit Miss Ruby in search of the perfect dress.
