Here's the thing about your wedding day makeup: It's going to look incredible. And aside from maybe the heavy powder and false lashes, you're going to want to replicate and incorporate what the makeup artist did into your daily (or evening) routine. So, when you do your beauty run-through, work with your stylist to find out the exact products and colors she's using or go online and choose them together. A pretty eyeshadow palette can take a bride from her wedding day, to the evening reception, the honeymoon, and all the way to her first anniversary celebration (and beyond!). Here, we've chosen some of our favorite bridal eyeshadow palettes from Sephora, Bloomingdales, Nordstrom and more
What's your sign? Better yet, what are all your bridesmaids' signs? Whether it's the traditional zodiac based on Western astrology and ancient Greco-Roman mythology or the Chinese zodiac that repeats its animal signs on a 12-year cycle, these personal (albeit superstitious...) symbols never fail to fascinate. Incorporating the various zodiac signs and representative animals into personalized jewelry for your wedding day is a welcome trend, be it in the form of a signature piece for the bride or a special gift for your best gals. We can't predict the future, but we can promise your bridal party will have stars in their eyes over these beautiful necklaces, pendants, charms, bracelets and rings from Nordstrom, Etsy, Urban Outfitters and more.
Modern weddings can carry on for days and feature multiple events, including the post-wedding brunch. This delightful event is more than an occasion for drinking mimosas and eating eggs Benedict: It's a stress-free occasion that takes place the day after the wedding when the newlyweds have experienced some much-deserved rest. The post-wedding brunch allows for out-of-town guests to say a longer goodbye and it ensures that everyone can discuss what they loved about the wedding.
So, what's a bride to wear to wear to the post-wedding brunch? We love a post-wedding brunch dress that's casual, fresh and lovely. We prefer ivory or white, whether it is a solid white or a white backdrop that features a delicate floral print. White keeps the bridal theme going, but it can have many incarnations, from a breezy sundress to to an elegant lace dress to a lightweight dress featuring embroidery. Here, we've made a list of gorgeous brunch dresses from Anthropologie, ASOS and Nordstrom. They range from casual to sophisticated, and any one will keep you chic during your post-nuptial bliss.
Flower crowns are all the rage in decorative headpieces, allowing a creative bride to imbue her wedding with a boho fairy vibe. These flower crowns have roots in mythology and art and can be traced back to ancient Greece, where people wore them to celebrate the gods. Flower crowns made a major comeback during the '60s and '70s, when hippies ushered them in as a symbol of peace, love and intimacy with nature.
Bridesmaids, flower girls and brides can all accessorize themselves with floral crowns for a romantic wedding filled with blooms. Any hairstyle will accommodate a flower crown, whether it's sitting atop cascading tresses, encircling a high, wavy ponytail or wrapped around an elegant bun. Angela Cosmai, celebrity colorist and color corrector at Pierre Michel Salon in New York City, says, "A lovely idea to pair with a flower crown is a headband braid, which can be achieved with your hair or by adding a faux braid. Wrap the braid around the head then intertwine the hair in and out of the flower crown to give you a whimsical look."
Most brides won't want to part with their flower crown after the big day, and they don't have to: These crowns, available at favorite retailers including ASOS, David's Bridal, Amazon and more, can do double duty as a festival accessory. Watch out, Coachella!
