What's Your Wedding Day Look?

Have you considered your "look" for your wedding day?

Some brides want functionality, and some want pure elegance. Many times brides want to make sure they look like they do every day. I agree- you don't want to look like a completely different person!

You definitely want to consider the style of your wedding dress , since clearly that is a huge part of your "look". Also, think of where your wedding will take place, as well as the style of wedding you will be having. If your wedding is going to be in the summer and outdoors, you might want to consider wearing your hair in a loose up-do to stay a bit cooler. You want to be stunning and gorgeous on your wedding day, so be sure to consider all aspects of your wedding day to best achieve your wedding day "look".

The key to knowing what will be best for your wedding day look is to have trial runs. These trial runs are most beneficial to you when they are booked approximately 1 to 3 months before the wedding. You don't want to be squeezing in your hair and makeup trials a week before the wedding! If you've never used your makeup artist or hairstylist before, it's a good idea to have a trial run when you first book them. This lets you know what their style is like and whether or not they are capable of giving you the look that you want. (I personally had one makeup artist do my makeup for my engagement photos, and it wasn't exactly what I wanted. Thank goodness I did that, because I found an amazing makeup artist months later, and even had her do my makeup twice before my wedding day.) Trials will also help so you can be aware of how well the products will hold up. That way you'll know if you need to have some powder on hand or a bottle of hairspray nearby.

Now your hair and makeup probably won't look exactly how it looked for your trials, and that's okay! If anything, everything will probably look better than with the trials. It's definitely a huge help to the hairstylist and makeup artist (and the day's timeline) if they already know what they're doing to make you a beautiful, glowing bride!

There are so many factors to consider when choosing your wedding day look, but remember, it all comes down to what will make you feel beautiful, comfortable, and happy!
