Looking your good on your big day is just about as important as it gets! All the planning, all the mad dashing around, all the worrying, none of it will matter to you if you don’t feel the most beautiful you have ever felt. You’ll want to remember that feeling of all those ‘wow’ moments for the rest of your life, so here’s a blog to give you a few ideas of how to do something a bit different on your big day that’s certain to leave you looking beautiful.
Quite possibly the most important purchase of your entire life, you wedding dress has to be perfect. Somewhere between fit-for-the-occasion and personal style is a good place to start, but just because it’s a wedding it doesn’t have to be white. There’s a whole host of gorgeous dresses out there, from the classic to the contemporary, and it’s up to you which you prefer. The sultry and sexy Ruby and Diva host a sumptuous collection of some of the coolest dresses around, you can see for yourself at www.rubyanddiva.com/boutique/the-bride/the-dress, with modern designs with traditional roots, on trend dresses and some stunning alternative ideas. As well, I’d also seriously recommend taking a look at the brilliant www.rockmywedding.co.uk for their total wedding commitment and sheer passionate approach to all things nuptial. There’s loads of great places out there offering a lot of great ideas, but I have to say I love these two the most because they’re just a little bit different and aren’t afraid to show their individuality, which is what your big day is all about really!
Hair and Makeup
Styling is everything, and your hair and makeup should complement your dress, whatever style you choose. Classical understatement is always a perfect choice, but what if you find yourself wanting to do a little bit more? Well, you could bring an exotic element to your style by checking out www.hairmakeup.co.uk/asian-bridal-make-up-london. These Asian styles team intricate hair weaves with soft, smoky makeup to produce a stunning visage. The combination of elegance and intricacy in combination with the soft, pastel colours really create a lasting impression of timeless beauty with an exotic and enigmatic twist. Conversely, for that more traditional, classic approach, take a look at www.lucyjaynemakeup.co.uk/services/bridal-services.html. Here you’ll find a bespoke makeup service for you and your bridesmaids, as well as a very useful freshen-up service for when you want your make up reapplying or changing for the evening!

Accessories are the little things that can help make your big day. Your veil, if you opt for one, can be a great addition, as can a tiara or a garter, not to mention your jewellery too. Again, there’s a lot of choice, and there’s always the danger of over-accessorising – there is such a thing as too much! It really just boils down to two options, you either look to complement your look, or add to it. For either choice, take a look at www.elliesweddingaccessories.co.uk for an amazing collection of some stunning items, perfect for any wedding. If you’re looking for something a little less traditional, then I cannot suggest www.funkybride.co.uk highly enough. Funky Bride offers some of the coolest handcrafted, bespoke bridal accessories available, their unique pieces really lending your day a personalised touch.
Whatever you choose, it is your day and all it really comes down to is how comfortable you feel. A beautiful dress, hair and makeup combination can go a long way to making that happen, and all topped off with a couple of extra trinkets for that little added glam.
