The Bohemian Bride

Not all brides are created equal. Some are more “bohemian flower child” than “ballroom princess”. When it comes to achieving that effortless boho bridal outfit, the key is picking a dress and accessories that reflect your laidback style—but turned up a notch on the glam factor!

Keep your hair loose and flowy, perhaps some beachy waves, and keep your makeup natural and simple to go with the overall relaxed feel.

DIY: Bridal Beauty

Every DIY bride knows that it’s all in the details, right down to your wedding-day beauty regimen. Your wedding will be one of the most photographed events of your life, so getting ready for those close-up moments is definitely worth the extra effort!

Here are some tips for putting your best face forward on the big day:

Practice makes perfect: Just like if you were to go to a makeup artist, it’s important to do a “trial run” for your day-of makeup look. You want to make sure everything looks natural and flawless, and that your makeup can withstand the entire day!

Skin Prep: To get the perfect canvas, great skincare is key. Treat yourself to weekly at-home facials prior to the wedding. Stress can cause flair ups, so make sure to take extra good care of your skin during the hectic planning phase- exfoliate daily, eat a nutrient-rich diet of fruits and veggies, get plenty of sleep, and drink LOTS of water!

More is NOT more! : Keep your makeup simple and natural. You want to enhance your natural beauty, not mask it behind layers of makeup. The key is to look like you, but better.

Don’t overdo the powder or you’ll risk looking lackluster. With a big powder brush, lightly dust  a sheer finishing powder to seal your foundation.

A few strategic strokes of highlighter/luminizer in the inner corners of your eyes, brow bone and along the cheekbones goes a long way in making you look fresh and glowing. Don’t go shimmer-crazy or you could end up looking like a disco ball in your photos!

Something Blue

Should you walk down the aisle without something blue? The tradition dates back to the Victorian England, but blue has been a symbol of faithfulness, purity, and loyalty since the days of ancient Rome. Sapphire earrings or a baby blue garter are a sweet and simple way to honor tradition, but bright cobalt nail polish isn’t as rebellious as your Great Aunt Muriel thinks! Before the nineteenth century, blue wedding dresses were far more common than white  gowns. Today, a soft blue dress makes a great "cut the cake" dress option!

Some brides choose to add a blue ribbon to their bouquets or add a blue monogram to their gowns. Unlike some bridal traditions, this is one custom that encourages creativity. Do you prefer teal to indigo? Adore azure, but can’t abide royal blue? Choose navy blue peep-toes or cobalt pumps to complement a more traditional gown.

Check out some of our blue bridal picks below from the Zappos Wedding Shop!

What to Wear to a Winter Wedding

If you’re celebrating a winter nuptial or two this season, you’ve probably been thinking about what you’ll be wearing. We’ve rounded up a few tips and suggestions to get you started!

  1. There’s a fine line between getting dressed up and being overdressed! It’s quite the faux pas to outdress or steal the spotlight from the bride, so keep it classy and simple.
  2. Lace is a great fabric to wear to both a daytime or evening event. Make sure to wear a good base layer so it’s not too revealing.
  3. For formal black-tie weddings, a black dress or gown in a sleek silhouette is the most versatile choice. You can even wear it again at those holiday parties just by changing up your accessories!
  4. Guys, invest in great suit separates. A single-breasted blazer is a modern way to dress up your go-to button-up shirts for a wedding. Keep it traditional by wearing the matching pant or break it up to add interest.
  5. Wedding receptions usually mean dancing! Make sure you’ve broken in your new dress shoes before hitting the dance floor. You don’t want to end the night with blisters. Ladies, Foot Petals are a great idea just in case!

Fall Wedding Picks

Autumn wedding bells are about to ring, and it’s definitely cause for anticipation and excitement. Although bridal whites and creams will never go out of season, autumnal weddings are the perfect setting for something with a little bit more drama and richness.

For a formal, black-tie affair, we love the idea of classic black, deep navy or rich jewel-toned dresses for the bridesmaids. If your wedding is a more casual daytime event, softer hues such as blushes, beiges and pinks make a great backdrop for the season’s richer color palettes.

Check out some of our current favorites in bridal dresses, shoes and accessories. For even more wedding options, shop the Wedding Shop!
