What kind of bride are you?


Whether you’re planning your own wedding now or have been dreaming about it since you were a little girl, like most women, you have thought about what you want to look like as you walk down the aisle. What kind of dress you want to wear, how you want your hair and makeup to look — are you a classic bride, a glamorous bride, vintage bride, or bohemian bride!

Keeping things on trend while trying to channel your inner retro or boho goddess can be difficult. Everything that was once old is made new again but with slight variations. Try picking two details to emphasize from your inspired look while keeping everything else modern. If your dress is a vintage style, try keeping your finger waves soft instead of super sculpted. If you’re a makeup lover like we are, you are probably a huge fan of winged liner. Keeping with your 1920’s theme, you can have your statement eye and opt for either a bold or nude lip.

We saw a lot of bohemian touches this wedding season. Flower crowns adorned beach waves which were the perfect touch for that boho vibe. If you prefer your hair up, loose, undone up-styles with Dutch braids will keep your look organic and romantic. Fresh faced makeup in dusty rose shades on your lips and cheeks with champagne lids will finish off your ethereal look.

There is something so enchanting about the classic princess bride. If you have been envisioning your Cinderella moment, your full tulle gown will speak to all the fairy tale lovers. Sleek up-styles or low buns with jeweled hair broaches along with your cathedral veils are timeless touches. Dewy skin and peachy cheeks with soft pink lips will show off your bridal glow. Lastly, shimmery lids with a semi smoke in the corner of your eye and natural lashes pull this look together.

For all you glam brides out there, you’re all about the drama! Dramatic makeup that is!! Full coverage foundation, contoured cheeks, smokey eyes, and lashes, lashes, lashes. Victoria’s Secret inspired hair is right up your alley. Hair that has the perfect amount of volume — no Jersey Shore poofs going on here. Long, flowing tendrils, all down or pulled half up, will pair perfectly with your sexy style.

No matter which bride you are, we know that you will have your guests lusting over your bridal style.
