How to style a modern, princess and romantic dress

Whether you’ve envisioned your dress since you were a little girl or started searching after

getting engaged, one of the most exciting parts of wedding planning is finding the dress. But the

fun doesn’t stop there. Choosing the dress is just the first part of bridal styling. As you walk

down the aisle on your big day, all eyes will be on you and making sure the little details – hair,

makeup and accessories flow with the gown you’ve chosen is what will create that ‘wow’

moment. Read on for styling and makeup tips to go with the top three classic bridal looks:

modern, princess and romantic.

Modern

In contrast, to the modern architectural neckline of this model’s dress, her vintage wave and

subdued glamour makeup look soften the overall feel of her modern gown. Her hair was pulled

up to draw focus to the exposed neckline and face drawing the eye up; and accessories were

avoided as a distracting necklace or bracelet would have taken away from her gorgeous skin

tone. Overall, the look feels modern, yet glamorous and would have any groom falling in love all

over again.

Princess

For the girl with an inner princess, this two piece Marchesa gown (corset top and skirt) will bring

a feminine show stopping moment as she walks down the aisle, but allow for an outfit change

(short skirt, perhaps?) midway through the reception. A swooping curl hairstyle pulled up for the

classic ballerina effect brings attention to the face, elongates the neck, and gives the overall feel

of classic elegance that doesn’t compete with the drama of her gown. A simple sparkly bracelet

was added on her left hand to draw attention to her best accessory; her engagement ring.

Romantic

This gorgeous drop waisted, modified mermaid gown by Tony Ward is a swirl of lace and

beaded leaves that float romantically up along a sheer neckline. The model’s hair was pulled

away from the face drawing attention to her silky complexion, elongating her neck and

showcasing shimmering earrings. By leaving a few curls down in the back guests’ attention is

drawn to the intricate beading detail seen from behind. The look is pulled together with a soft

smoky brown eye, pink coral lips and cheeks that exudes pure elegance and romance.
