AND MY TOP TIP FOR YOUR LOOK IS… ?
Be YOU on your wedding day… OK, be YOU but with bags of style… show the inner goddess. Forget the ‘How to look like a bride’ pages in that pile of mags you have now accumulated, how about doing yourself (and the groom) a favour, and looking like YOU – only of course the best YOU you can be !
Think RED CARPET, not bridal and you’ll be on my wave length.
What’s YOUR style… which words best sum you up… ?
soft & girlie
classic, clean, chic
quiet, simple & shy
elegant & expensive
WAG wannabe OK-mag-style
Gypsy Wedding full bling
Don’t know my true ‘look’ (need Lucinda !!!)
My advice – FOR GOODNESS SAKE BE YOU !!!
DON’T be swayed by your photographer / hairdresser / dress maker / friend / mother /mags & tv wedding shows to be a ‘cut-out’ bride… you aren’t sacrificing yourself to the devil…. yes, ok it’s kind of a ritual, and we all like a bit of tradition, but if GOK suddenly announced that to be the BEST bride, you had to tattoo each others names on a buttock would you do it ?
If your dress is simple, slips down over the body – no added anything, then go messy with the hair and stick a flower in…
if the dress is big and bling, keep the hair sleek and beautiful, pulled cleanly back with structure…
if it’s vintage, do a softer vintage up-to-date hairstyle – no need to look like you are in the WAFS, or appearing in a 40’s film…
Make the most of YOU, even if that means doing nothing – maybe YOU look best JUST how you are !! wash/blow-dry your own hair, use a bit of tinted moisturiser, apply dark brown mascara, addi a slick of vaseline to the lips, and pinch your cheeks before you go down the aisle…
what ever ‘look’ you choose, don’t forget my top tip…
“Wear it with CONFIDENCE: walk tall with elegant confident posture, laugh, smile, be happy… and show everyone how much you love your man…”
