Your wedding day look is probably one of the most important things you’ll decide on in your life. After all, it’s one of the most exciting and important days, and there are going to be pictures taken all day long. These pictures are going to last forever, so you want to make sure you look and feel your best! Here are some ideas to perfect your wedding day look:
Finding the Perfect Shade Of White
Brides traditionally wear white. This isn’t compulsory, but it is usually expected. It’s a tradition that’s going strong to this very day, and allows the bride to wear a different color to all of the other wedding guests. However, there are a hundred different shades of white that you can go for! You can go for bright white, yellow-white, gold-white, silver-white, ivory, cream, and the list goes on. Making your decision, you should take into account many things. Take into account your skin-tone first, as the shade you choose can either wash you out or make you look beautiful. You should also bear in mind the ‘style’ you want to go for. For instance, if you love vintage wedding styles, then more of an off-white will look better than a pure, brilliant white.
Your Bridal Jewelry
Choosing your bridal jewelry will help you to emphasize your look. An amazing dress is going to look great regardless, but your jewelry can really set it off and finish off the look you’re going for. Look at bridal ring sets that suit your ideal look, and then choose the rest of your jewelry based on what you’ve chosen. Make sure you choose jewelry that will enhance your dress, rather than overwhelm it. You’ll need to take into account whether your dress has sleeves, the neckline, and how you’re having your hair.
Hair And Makeup
Your hair and makeup can either be done by a professional, or by yourself. Make sure you do lots of research if you plan on having them professionally done, as they aren’t all created equal. You may want to watch a few tutorials and do it yourself to be safe. However, you’ll want to take into account the different types of makeup that look best in photographs, natural lighting, and so on. Make sure you think of the climate. If you’re getting married in summer or in a foreign country, you won’t want to be caked in makeup with your hair loose. You’ll be sweating all day long!
Your shoes, bag, and other accessories help to finish off your wedding look. It’s worth mentioning that your shoes probably aren’t the most important thing, as people won’t see them unless you lift up your dress. Why not invest in an amazing bag that you’ll use again instead?
Considering Your Personal Style
Bridal style is very different to other styles, but it’s a good idea to ensure you still put part of yourself into the outfit. Make sure you stay true!
Things To Do In Advance
There are things you can do in advance too. How about deep conditioning your hair once a week, giving yourself regular facials, and taking your vitamins? This can help to make you glow on your special day!
