How many weddings have you been invited to this year? So far, I’ve been invited to one and I couldn’t be more excited. I love weddings; the romance, the dancing, the free champagne…. By far the best bit about being invited to a wedding is having the chance to pamper yourself and invest in a stylish new outfit.
Of course, there’s also a lot of stress that comes with wedding season. Whether it’s your sister getting married or one of your old school friends, you want to look your best. You not only need a beautiful dress, but also the right accessories, and picture-perfect hair and makeup. The question is, how can you achieve this?
I’ve been thinking a lot about this, and I think that I’ve finally cracked it. Want to know how you can look and feel amazing this wedding season – keep reading.
Start with your outfit and accessories
Personally, I find that the hardest part of preparing for a wedding is choosing my outfit. The issue is that with so many pretty dress designs to choose from, I always struggle to find the right one. It needs to be the perfect cut, the right length, and just the right amount of ‘posh’ for the celebrations.
I tend to browse online first to get some ideas and then hit the shops. It’s important to ensure that you leave yourself enough time to find the perfect outfit – at least a month. This gives you time to pick a dress, look for shoes, and find all the other accessories that you need. If you’re really stuck, make an appointment to see a personal shopper and see what dress designs they’d put you in.
Choose the hairstyle you want
There are so many cute, pretty hairstyles that are perfect for weddings. It’s just a case of learning how to do them and seeing what works for your hair type. YouTube is a great resource for learning how to do a range of different hairstyles. However, if hair styling isn’t your thing, it could be worth having your hair professionally done for the big day.
If you’ve got short hair, this presents a whole new problem. When it comes to hairstyles for special occasions, sadly there’s only so much you can do with short hair. One option, if your hair is too short to style properly, is having hair extensions put in. If you opt for professional ones, like these LA Weave hair extensions made from real human hair, they can look beautifully natural.
Get your makeup spot on
As for wedding makeup, it’s all about creating a soft, subtle look. You don’t want to turn up caked in makeup – for a wedding, it’s much better to opt for a natural look. There are lots of fantastic tutorials online for creating natural-looking makeup, so there’s no need to stress.
For best results, opt for a BB cream or tinted moisturiser instead of using a full coverage foundation. Top this with a clear setting powder, a little blush, and bronze, and a small amount of highlighter. For your eyes, use nude eyeshadow to create a soft, subtle look. While a dark lip can add a little colour, for a wedding natural tones are always best. Don’t forget to set your look with a makeup setting spray – this will ensure your makeup stays in place all day.
So there you have it, all the best fashion and beauty tips for wedding season.
