Wedding dress trends are chic and dramatic compared to prior years. It’s not uncommon to see a bride wearing a powerful color rather than the traditional white, a mini dress or a dress with a dramatic slit.
The ultra-romantic look is back, too. Thanks to Kate Middleton, sleeves and lace are making a comeback.
The most important tip of all is to be yourself and enjoy being the belle of the ball.
Many brides want natural-looking makeup. Go for definition rather than color. You want your features to show up - not the color of your makeup.
For eyes, create shape by using variations of you own skin tones with browns, grays, and peach. For cheeks, apply blush after you do your lips so you don't add too much color. Lipliner should always match your lipstick.
Save money with a rustic or country wedding theme. An outdoor setting is the easiest way to get that rustic feel. Consider a park, a barn, or even the beach. Decorate using items from your backyard: Twigs, dried flowers, pinecones, hay, fruit, vegetables, and vintage items such as Mason jars will add to the ambience.
Remember that your bouquet should complement the style of your wedding dress. If you have a fairly simple dress consider designing your own bouquet with elaborate flowers and details. Go over the top! If it’s your gorgeous wedding gown you really want to show off, consider a smaller, more intimate bouquet.
Your hairstyle will be one of the most important details of your wedding. What you decide can change your look completely, so choose carefully and wisely based on what is flattering on you and what fits your personality and lifestyle. Simple is the new sexy – from updo’s you can create yourself to loose and tousled hair - it can all work. If you have healthy beautiful hair, consider wearing your locks down.
