How the Finishing Touches to your Perfect White Dress Set the Stage for your Big Day.
Style, like beauty is truly the sum of all parts and your wedding day is no exception. Accessories are hair & make-up are equally important components as your wedding dress to ones overall wedding day style. For our first collaboration we styled 3 wedding dresses and a bridesmaid dress from The White Dress for an event with Swell Beauty at the Rancho Capistrano Winery. This being OC STYLE REPORT’s first bridal styling shoot, we stayed true to essence of bridal.
It’s not always the dress that makes your look a particular style, but the accessories.
Our Modern Bride is “modern” simply because of the way we chose to style the mini birdcage veil. The inspiration for this look did not come from the world of bridal but fashion and music-think Beyoncé at the MET Gala. It’s looking at bridal styling in a different way that will set you apart on your wedding day.
So many of us southern California ladies love bohemian style, but boho for your wedding day look can be tricky. We wanted both glamour and bohemian style for this look. Simply taking a crystal embellished head piece and wrapping it on the upper arm and adding a soft silk belt with a flower, gave this glamours dress a bit of bohemian flare without being over-the-top boho.
Don’t forget, it’s your day to be glamours; let your venue & flowers speak your bohemian style while standing in the spotlight with grace and beauty.
Subtly adding your theme to your wedding day style is key to not looking like your wearing a costume especially when it comes to vintage. We took a wedding accent belt and used it as a head piece weaved into the finger wave of the hair to give a vintage feel to a modern woman. Again, it’s this accessory & hair alone that finish the look in a subtle vintage style.
