I don’t know how on earth my wedding is almost two months away, but here we are! I am definitely feeling the pressure of everything that still needs to get done, but it’s all coming together, and now that RSVP cards are showing up in my mailbox, it’s feeling more real than ever! Fellow spring brides, know that I am thinking of y’all–we’re almost there! :)
Next up on my wedding to-do list is my hair and makeup trial, so I thought this would be a good time to share some of my inspiration. I am SO excited that Samantha of Lula Hair and Makeup (she worked her magic at this shoot last year!) will be prettifying my favorite ladies and me on my wedding day. She is so talented at achieving the really beautiful, natural look I love, and she’s also as sweet as can be–exactly the type of person a girl wants around on her wedding morning!
When thinking about how I want to look on my wedding day, one of the most important things to me is that I feel like myself. That said, I have two “signature” beauty looks: my hair is really long, and I never shy away from bright lipstick. Long hair means that I can do pretty much anything with it, so I’ve been collecting inspiration that runs the gamut from long, romantic curls to chic updos. Let’s take a look!
There are the “all down” looks–I love the princess-y feel of these styles!
There’s the classic half up/half down, AKA the perfect happy medium.
And, the updos! I rarely wear my hair up, which makes it feel extra special when I do (like at the V7 launch party). I love these elegant, piece-y (but not messy) styles.
I always feel my most dressed up with color on my lips, and while I wouldn’t want to go too bold for my wedding, I do have my eye on a few bright-ish shades as possibilities (this one in Strawberry Sorbet and this one in Primerose look gorgeous!). Here is some pretty lipstick inspiration from past SW editorials!
How did you/will you wear your hair on your wedding day? Are you incorporating any of your go-to beauty looks? I’d love to hear!
