Which Bride Are You?

If you’re the Victoria Secret Bride:

You’re a bombshell babe whose goal is to look unintentionally beautiful. Voluminous hair is sexy: Stay away from the straight iron! Go for texture or large, loose curls that give you a wind-blown effect when you strut by. Your guests won’t be able to take their eyes off you.

If you’re the Beach Bride:

You’re all about having fun and don’t take things too seriously. Your hair should reflect your playful, carefree outlook on life, so opt for loose waves. Weaving two braids around the back of your head for a reversed crown look will add dimension to the laid back style.

If you’re the Girl Next Door:

You feel comfortable in your skin and prefer to look and feel natural, especially on your wedding day. A loose braid is perfect; not over-the-top, but just whimsical enough to feel like a bride. Add a homemade flower tiara for a fresh look all your own. Your natural beauty will surely shine.

If you’re the Modern Bride:

You’re a fashion-forward woman of today and want a hairstyle that rivals those of celebrities on the red carpet. To accomplish this, pull curls back into a loose bun a little higher than the base of your neck. Every little hair should not be hair sprayed down; stiff updos are overdone. Don’t take yourself too seriously and go for effortlessly beautiful, leaving out short, wavy tendrils to frame your face.

If you’re the Pinup Bride:

You’re a decade’s girl who would rather rummage through thrift stores than shop at department stores. For a fun, sexy style, use a thick curling iron to roll up pieces of your hair into rollers. One you release large, face-framing barrel curls, brush them out. To get the complete ’50s look, wear a caged veil with a flower or sparkling brooch to add glamour. Your grand entrance will be unforgettable.

If you’re the Vintage Bride:

You long to have witnessed 1920s Paris. The beauty and grace of the era is stunning, and your wedding is the perfect time to embrace it. A structured side-do with the identifiable wave will help you channel Daisy Buchanan and create the glamorous elegance you always dreamed of.

If you’re the Ballerina Bride:

You’re peppy, feminine and have been dreaming of a Cinderella-wedding since you were a little girl. A prominent bun on the very top of your head is all you need to complete the fantasy look. After gathering your hair into a high ponytail, wrap the tail end around, pin it and soon you have a top-knot worthy of a princess.

If you’re a Lace Romance Bride:

You’re a hopeless romantic who has dreamt of looking soft and beautiful on her wedding day. Using delicate lace as inspiration, a twisted bun at the base of the neck will accentuate your natural features.

If you’re a High Fashion Bride:

A true fashionista, your inspiration has stemmed from the runways of New York and Paris. You understand that a successful, unforgettable look doesn’t end with the dress. Donning a low ponytail with texture on top adds a modern, couture edge fit for a model.

The Ultimate Wedding Guide

What to Wear to ANY Wedding!

Casual Look

x-32

  • Above-the-Knee Dress: a cute sundress with flowers or pattern is a perfect fit. The dress should not be to short, just above the knee is perfect. You can also try dressy separates, like a blouse and skirt.
  • Heels are NOT Required: try to wear ballet flats or fun detailed sandals.
  • No Flashy: sequins and rhinestones will be way to much for this kind of wedding.
  • Do Not Go to Casual: regular weekend clothes are not permitted. Do not wear ANYTHING denim. This is a very important event, so make sure to dress the part!
  • Hair and Makeup: keep it natural! For hair, do a sleek ponytail, loose up-do, or waves. For makeup, keep it light and fresh.

Semifomal Look

  • The Cocktail Dress: you can wear almost any color, it all depends on your preference. If you want to dress it up, just add a statement necklace and heels.
  • Do Not Go for the Super fancy: a floor-length dress or a dress with lots of sequins will look completely out-of-place. It will look like you are competing with the bride or bridesmaids.
  • Don’t Forget you LBD: you can always wear your favorite little black dress and add some flare. You can add a color belt, heels or statement earrings.
  • Wear the Heels: a little height always makes you look fancier and dressier.
  • Hair and Makeup: for hair: a updo. For makeup: a bold lip.

Formal Look

  • Long or Short: you will see both long and short dresses, but a long dress is the natural fit for a formal wedding. If you do choose a short dress, make sure it is knee-length and has “luxe” detailing such as ruffles or shine.
  • Standout Accessories: add a sparkly statement necklace, strappy heel, and metallic clutch to give your look glam and beauty.
  • Do Not Reveal too much Skin: try to stay away from high slits, a low back, or a plunging neckline. These types of dresses are to sexy for a wedding.
  • Dress to Impress: make sure you are dressed up enough. With formal wedding more is better. For formal wedding, daily wear is not permitted.
  • Hair and Makeup: this is a great time to consider to get your hair and makeup done professionally. Go for a polished hair style and sleek lips and eyes.
