Choosing your wedding day style!
Choosing the perfect wedding dress, makeup, and hairstyle seems to put some brides- to -be into major panic mode…and we can see why! Everyone around you is quick to throw in his or her two cents about the way you should look. Your mom loves your hair up because you can show off your beautiful long neck (that you inherited from her!) and your grandma insists that you wear a veil! Your sister loves you with a bold red lip but your fiancé loves when you look natural. Your mother in law thinks you would look amazing in her wedding dress- she has it in a box in the garage if your interested- OY!
Before you call the wedding off let us give you a few tips that can help you make these tough decisions so much easier.
The fab-four – Do your self a favor. When it comes to wanting the opinions of others keep your inner circle small. Even if you have 10 bridesmaids standing up in your wedding it really wont do you any good to have every one of them give their opinion on your wedding day style. Keep the inner beauty posse to no more than four people. And pick people whose style you love and who will be honest but kind to you. For your hair and makeup trial we recommend thinking of one person who would make the experience fun and helpful for you. Maybe a sister, best friend, or mom. Someone who puts you at ease. And at the end of the day, go with your gut on what dress, hair, and makeup you feel most beautiful and comfortable in.
Trend today- regret tomorrow
Being in the fashion business, we LOVE a fun new trend and we love how fashion is always coming up with new ways to keep us looking updated and fresh! With that said, we also know that we regret some trends much sooner than others! When it comes to your wedding day try to stay true to who you are. If you never wear your hair up or wear a bold lip maybe your wedding day isn’t the time to experiment with those trends. But if you are fashion forward and always trying something new and daring- then doing something bold! If you are true to yourself you wont shock anyone at the wedding- you will look like you in the best possible way! Rock your best self and feel comfortable with the styles that you choose.
Overthinking kills happiness-
I would say this is a very common problem we see in the bridal business. The bride gets the dress and shoes, and she loved the hair and makeup trial! But as the wedding day approaches she starts to rethink everything. You can usually chalk all the second-guessing up to nerves as the day quickly approaches. Chances are you made great choices on your wedding day style but that inner voice starts to make you rethink everything. Do yourself a favor and set up a second hair and makeup trial if that would make you feel better. Or scroll through your pictures to reassure yourself that your wedding dress is perfectly you. Just don’t get to caught up in these feelings- remember this day is about you getting married and celebrating with the people you love the most- and that is what you will always remember!
