Today I am going to be sharing my first post that I put together as the May Guest Wedding Editor of Brit + Co. Below, I share my best bridal beauty tips and tricks…
Hi, everyone! I’m so excited to be the Guest Wedding Editor of Brit + Co for the month of May! I did a ton of party planning for my new book, Celebrate. But of all the parties featured in the book, my wedding was my favorite one, of course. Aside from how magical the day was, I learned so much in the process—including a few tips that translate to planning other types of soirees, too. Once you plan a big wedding, hosting a birthday party or baby shower will probably feel like a piece of cake in comparison (pun intended!). So as Guest Wedding Editor, I’ll be bringing you a series of Wedding Wednesday posts with some of my best advice for planning your big day. Today, I’d like to start off with some bridal beauty tips.
Whether you’re used to being the center of attention or you’re typically more of a wallflower, your wedding is one day when all eyes will be on you. It will also probably be one of the most photographed days in your life, so it goes without saying that you want to look your best. You also deserve to feel as beautiful as you are happy. So with that said, I shared three bits of beauty advice every bride should know with Brit + Co today…
1. Look Like Yourself
There’s so much pressure to look the most beautiful you’ll ever look on your wedding day that brides often go overboard. But you don’t want to look back at your wedding photos and not recognize the girl in the white dress. Your “aisle style” should be a more dressed-up version of your everyday style. So when you’re choosing your hair and makeup looks, think about looking like yourself—but on a really, really good day. If you always wear your hair down, the elegant updo might not be the right choice for you. Instead, consider romantic waves or loose curls. If you’ve never sported a bold, red lip before, don’t have your wedding day be the first time you try it out. Instead, stick with a slightly richer version of the same shade you always carry in your makeup bag.
What other tips would you add for brides wanting to look their best on their big day?
