Wedding Look Changers
by Nicole Brewer
There are so many ways to express your personal style on your wedding day—so, get creative and be ready to try something new! The best part about your bridal style is that you don’t have to stick with one look; you can transform your classic gown into a unique fashion statement with just a few simple items—without breaking the bank. Add eye-catching finishing touches like hairpieces, jewels, sashes and clutches, and personalize your wedding wardrobe with accessories you’ll wear again with fond memories. Celebrate your day in your style!
If you like the romance of a vintage inspired fashion, a birdcage veil, blusher or fascinator can complement any hairstyle and wedding gown.
Consider swapping out your ceremony pearls for the classic sparkle of crystal or rhinestone accessories for the party. After all, the lighting, décor and mood shift during the reception. Why not bring on the bling at a fraction of the cost of diamonds?
Sashes are becoming a popular way to accentuate waistlines, and completely change the look of a dress. If you liked Kate Middleton’s lacey arm coverage, wear it during your ceremony and consider losing the lace for the wedding reception. You can reveal some skin and add a jewel encrusted sash–one embellished with delicate flowers, or perhaps a dramatic bow.
Though you may not be photographed carrying it, you’ll need a cute bridal clutch. For a twist on classic ivory, look for intricate lace or floral appliqués that make carrying your lip gloss and powder, something special. Or, go bold with a pop of color or bedazzled glitz and glam.
Whether you have a make-up artist on hand or not, you can even change your nude gloss lip to a deep or bright red hue that says you’re ready to mix and mingle and dance all night!
