I was approached by Loverly to create a wedding look for their Dream Day Style Challenge. Needless to say, I was beyond giddy to give this challenge a try. You had to choose between three locations (rustic, beach or traditional) for the challenge, so I chose a beach wedding. I went with a pink color palette, since brides usually wear and decorate with shades of blues and purple for their own beach weddings. My look for the challenge is very feminine and a bit vintage.
The Dress: I chose a short, strapless wedding dress that has an A-line skirt and sweetheart neckline with bow detail. The dress seems perfect for a beach wedding, it’s budget friendly (only $700), and looks comfortable enough for you to move around the beach and dance the night away at your reception.
Accessories: For the accessories, I went with a dusty rose, gold and white color palette. I wanted colors that give the look a vintage touch. The headpiece and all the jewelery, including the wedding ring, are all vintage inspired pieces. I purposely selected accessories that are under $100 (Except the wedding ring. You should always invest in a very nice wedding ring.), but also pieces that you can wear again after your wedding day is over. You can definitely wear that cute miu miu pink clutch again to a fun date with your new husband!
The Shoes: The shoes are my favorite part of this whole look and I almost bought them myself for my own wedding. I didn’t because my cousin sent me the perfect pair as my something borrowed. I love that these pink heels have cute bows and that they are kitten heels. I recommend wearing kitten heels or even flats to your wedding, because all the standing and waiting around will leave you with blisters on your feet, if you wear anything higher. If you want high heels for the wedding pictures that’s great, but trust me change into flats or kitten heels after. Your feet will thank you for it!
If you wear a feminine look like this one for your big day, keep your hair and makeup simple. Wear a cute cat eye with rosy cheeks and lips, and finish the look with a braided updo or a sleek ponytail. I recommend wearing your hair in an updo for your beach wedding, because the heat and the nerves will completely destroy and frizz your hair if you wear it down.
