I lost a good two hours last weekend watching TLC's Say Yes to the Dress, much to Theo's well-hidden despair. There's something about watching women try on dress after basic-ass dress that really fills me with life. Honestly, just thinking of having to plan a full on wedding and making so many decisions makes me break out in hives, so I enjoy living vicariously through other women from the comfort of my tiny couch. Among the myriad decisions a bride has to make is what kind of look she wants to rock on her big day. Here are a couple suggestions if you are in search of your perfect wedding day look! Hope they help narrow down even just a few of the hundreds of decisions you must make!
Think long hippie hair, flower crowns, and a dewy complexion. This look is all about glowing skin, rosy cheeks, doe-eyes, and a flowing dress. Perfect for a forest setting with lots of greenery on a foggy day. Let Kate Moss and Stone Fox Bride be your guides.
Bare feet, a simple yet sexy dress, and freckles make for a dreamy beach wedding. Natural colors like seashell, sky blue and sand are the perfect backdrop for peaches and cream makeup with a loose or slightly pulled back hairstyle that won't go crazy with the ocean breeze. Play up the lashes and keep everything else faux-natural.
Strapless dress with a sweetheart neckline, plummy lips, ballet slipper colored nails (which I happen to be currently sporting), and twist up that hair for your black tie affair. Surround yourself with red roses, your Manolo's can be your something blue, and you can even throw on some gloves a la Caroline Bessette Kennedy.
Let Grace Kelly and Jackie Kennedy be your guides. Don't shy away from lace, floaty organza that drifts behind you, sleeves, and a good cat-eye. Rep lips, tea roses, and yellow gold jewelry will throw back to your granny's timeless style. A perfect modern day example of vintage inspiration: Amal.
These are only a few different styles, but hopefully they inspire you to find the perfect look so that you feel your absolute best on your special day. You'll find me at the open bar!
