If you happen to have two major dates in your future — a baby's due date and a wedding — well, soon-to-be Mrs. Mom, you have much to celebrate. But first, take a deep breath and pick the wedding dress. Size your maternity wedding dress according to what your due date will be on your wedding day, and size up to cover your bases: It's always easier to tailor a larger dress. Then the sky's the limit! You can a choose a silhouette that includes a flowing A-line skirt and a high empire waist or, in the opposite direction, a form-fitting style that shows off your great legs and features a flattering neckline. If your bump will be small on the big day and you would prefer to hide it, a peplum waist is the perfect camouflage. (Bonus: In some cases, you can double dip by using your wedding dress as your baby shower gown.) No matter how far along you are, your wedding will be a celebration of love and life. We've rounded up some gorgeous maternity wedding gowns from our favorite online shops, including Etsy, Nordstrom and David's Bridal. Cheers to you!
Your wedding day is the perfect opportunity to reveal your beautiful best all the way to your fingertips. That's why we've curated the prettiest nail polish colors for summer brides, all available now at Walmart. From sweet pink to sensual gray to seaworthy blue, here are a handful of our favorites tones that will work with wedding gowns and bridal party dresses of any color, along with suntanned skin of course!
Taking advantage of the long Fourth of July long weekend for your wedding celebration? Tones of red, white and blue will add sizzle to the shindig. Our country's birthday invites you to imbue your wedding with classic Americana motifs. Plus, planning a patriotic party allows you to create a laid-back and casual wedding vibe.
Think out of the box when orchestrating your Fourth of July wedding. Rather than the traditional white flower girl dress, choose gingham. Instead of fancy ties or ascots, have your groomsmen wear red, white and blue bowties. Then, finish the affair with sparkling fireworks!
A blushing bride with a dewy glow, lush lashes and flushed lips: Doesn't that sound like a pretty picture? You can create it. Use your inner beauty as your canvas, then bring your creative talents and some artist-worthy glowing beauty products into the mix. This is how you can amp up your natural beauty for the big day. We love the high-low nature of beauty products that can be found in one spot, via Walmart, which offers high-end brands such as Guerlain and NARS, as well as affordable brands like L'Oreal and Revlon. We've curated a list of glowy skin and makeup products, including bronzer, highlighter, lip gloss and more, for a wedding day look from Walmart that won't break the bank.
Ah, the honeymoon: It's the glittering light at the end of the wedding tunnel.
