We are very much in love with the new summer wedding trend based on colored bridal dresses. We admit that this inedited look is very charming and inspiring. The truth is that we never really liked the idea of a colored wedding gown but now we’re deeply into this trend. This is due to the lovely nuances proposed by our designers. The colors they envision for a wedding dress are very sweet and romantic, nothing too flashy and stridently inappropriate.
We enjoy very much the concept of a wedding dress with color, especially when it comes to shades from the pastel palettes. The idea of wearing a colored dress on the wedding day can be very flattering for those who want to make a fashion unique statement. Every girl dreams of looking outstanding on her big day, but how many of us are really willing to sacrifice tradition and choose a colored style over the classic white gown? This question can definitely find an answer in these amazing gowns. Statistics show that more and more brides of today are interested in this trend.
Many women have the experience of red and other boldly colored gowns and they don’t find this style the most appropriate for their delicate vision. Forget about the bright colored Alfred Angelo wedding dresses and choose something soft and refined, like a Vera Wang design. The enchanting silhouettes we’re showing you today are from Carol Hannah. These pieces are from the strikingly beautiful bridal collection released for 2013. We are big fans of this designer and we like everything she does for the fashion bridal world. The shades she used for this bridal line are breathtakingly beautiful and feminine. We like the floating champagne, ivory and beige.
You can find these charming models in natural white shades as well. The models in light silver are absolutely fascinating, don’t you think? The fusion between the diaphanous silhouettes and the soft colors is sensational. This is a delicate refined contrast that can add more originality and uniqueness to the bride. The ball gown models in drapes, layers, frills and asymmetrical cuts are our favorite. The buttery yellow models look very fresh and feminine. They are ideal for spring and early summer wedding ceremonies. We also enjoy the gold and glittery sashes tied around the waists.
The deconstructed tulle designs look amazing and innovative. This collection gives you a lot of options in terms of structure, qualitative unique design and colors. If you’re looking for a sweet and trendy wedding dress with a hint of color then this collection will definitely be on your taste. The subtlety of the shades and the lightness of the fabrics used for these dresses are our favorite qualities.

If you still have no idea of how to do your hair for a beach wedding, read on to this post. We also brought a few beautiful pictures to help you get inspired easier. The most popular place to get married these days is the beach venue. Many brides & grooms of all ages, from different corners of the world choose a dream destination or a local beach for their ceremony and reception. The urban wedding style is not bad and not outdated either. It’s just that modern couples prefer to go for the relaxed style.
The seaside has much to offer when it comes to commodious places to enjoy and gorgeous beaches to explore. As the warm water touches our feet and the breeze goes through you hair you will discover that you wouldn’t want to spend your wedding day anywhere else. The silver sand and the fresh smell of the sea are other great elements that complete the perfect scenery for a casual comfy wedding. Although beach weddings may seem more carefree, it doesn’t mean that you can neglect your look and choose whatever falls into your hands.
One of the most important aspects to plan for a beach wedding is your hair. Everything can turn into an unpleasant day if your hair looks bad! To avoid a situation like this you have to choose something loose yet elegant in the same measure. It may sound difficult to achieve the perfect hairstyle for a beach wedding, doesn’t it? Well, you should not fret though. There are many beautiful ideas easy to implement and adore! It’s essential to keep in mind the weather conditions before making any hasty decision regarding your hairstyle. The most adequate type of look for a beach ceremony is the romantic and natural style.
The fairy-tale themes are not for beach venues, but the princess look can suit the luxury of the beach. If you want to obtain a modern-day princess look we suggest you adhere to the Grecian goddess look. This style is even more romantic, sensual and dreamy. Sweeping curls or soft long locks can not go wrong! You can adorn your head some more with a matching headband or another pearl headpiece.
For a more elegant yet nonchalant look, choose a loosely tied bun with soft curls. Add a tropical flower in your hair to enhance the exotic flair of the venue. These hairstyles are great to accentuate your femininity. Are you in for a timelessly classy look? If you don’t want a messy hair troubled by the breeze opt for a fancy chignon. If your dress is backless, wear this style to show off the beauty of your nape and skin on the back.
We all want the perfect look for your wedding. For some brides it’s easy to achieve the perfect look of her dreams, while for others it’s more difficult due to all the unique choices available nowadays in field. Weddings have become highly fashionable events based on all things aesthetical. However, there are a few changes that we can point here. For example, the modern type of elegance featured nowadays in weddings is slightly more simplistic and chic.
On the other hand, the romantic vibe is also more whimsical and personalized. In many cases, the modern brides prefer to go naturally and feminine. And when we’re talking about the natural look we can refer to the bohemian, eco-friendly, rustic or hippie style. There are many other unique themes you can focus on when planning a natural bridal look. But these ones are the most popular ones. The most common type of hairdo for a bride is the up-do. Nevertheless, we can discuss here about a myriad of ways of arranging your hair in an updo.
The choices are numberless and they are different from one case to another. It all depends on the formality of your wedding. The venue of the ceremony and reception can also influence your decision. For example, if you’re having a ballroom wedding, you must find a sleek elegant updo to suit the formality of the event. On the other hand, if your wedding occurs on a sandy beach, anything loose and curly can work. There are many beautiful up-dos that can be achieved by the bride herself. Those who are on a budget and want to save more money for the wedding can choose a DIY wedding hairstyle. You might not be able to make a bun on your own but you can create a simpler hairdo to go with your casual look.
The decision of the perfect wedding updo should also be influenced by the length and texture of your hair. If you are a short-haired bride you can create beautiful ringlets and then arrange them in a romantic updo. Brides who have a chin length hair can make the best of this look. The curls can be thick or looser, depending on how voluminous you want your look to be. Brides with long hair can also choose a romantic appearance by curling their hair. The trick to obtaining soft rich curls is to use a lot of cream and hair serum before making the curls. For a wavy hairstyle to suit a beach ceremony, you can use sea salt spray. This will add more volume to you hair and help you create instant messy curls to suit the seaside venue. Half up-dos and braided up-dos are also trendy choices.
Women like to get ready for attending a special party or simply for going out with their best friends. The wedding day is the most important event in the life of a woman and we can only imagine how hectic, anxious and excited brides get when it comes to planning their beautiful look for the ceremony and reception. We all like to pamper ourselves and flatter our figure and silhouette with pretty cloths and unique details. We like to accessorize our look with a gorgeous wedding dress, a unique pair of shoes, an eye-catchy hairstyle and a trendy make-up.
When you’re a bride, one of the most thrilling aspects to plan for a wedding is the make-up. The decision upon the most adequate makeup for the big day is always personal, but it is taken after a long process of searching and reconsidering the coordinates of the wedding. You can never pick a makeup on your own, without consulting the formality of your wedding, the design of your dress and the sophistication of your overall look. If you consider yourself to be a modern bride, then you have to look for a style that can suit your preference.
Don’t forget that every single item you will be wearing on your wedding day will speak of your personality and taste in beauty, style and fashion. So, be careful with the colors you use and don’t choose something too strident or too plain. The perfect bridal makeup is the one that makes you look at your best! Make sure to consider your face configuration when selecting the wedding make-up. Many brides of today prefer to go for the natural makeup look.
This is definitely good news, giving the fact that you will be able to look, behave and feel like yourself. It’s essential for the modern bride to keep to her individual style and preferences when choosing the hairstyle, the wedding dress, the bouquet, the makeup and the other accessories for the big day. However, you may have to adapt your taste to suit the tonality of the season or venue of your wedding.
For instance, if you’re having a winter wedding, you might want to choose something shimmer and glittery. For spring you can go pastel, and in summer you can use a bronzer. If your wedding takes place during the fall, you can choose earthy autumnal tones. Those who are having a tropical celebration you’ll have to consider brighter tones. Make sure your makeup fits the overall style you picked for your look. Among the hottest trends in bridal make-up we mention: nude lips and light eyes, shimmering eye-shadows, bold lipstick and dark eyes, subtle eye neutral tones like beige, peach, coral, cream and brown.
We don’t know about you, but we are very excited about the new braided hairstyles popularized nowadays for brides. We just can’t get enough of the gorgeous hairdos inspired by the braided style. This trend is constantly growing in popularity as more and more brides of today decide to adopt the natural look for their big day. We have to admit that there is something very chic and feminine about the braided hair that can make a woman look very unique and sophisticated, but in a simple way. We adore braids because they are simple, soft and elegant.
Besides this, we have to mention the fact that they are extremely versatile. Both long and short-haired brides can wear braids in a unique way and look sensational! We brought a few beautiful photos to help you gather more visual information for your own wedding. Who knows, perhaps you will be able to find something adequate in here for your own look! Braids can be worn loose or sleek, bohemian or sculpted, intricate or simple, rustic or glamorous.
Many stars in Hollywood seem to be into the braided hairstyle. The surprise is that they’re wearing braids on the red carpet and this says a lot about the beauty and elegance of this trend. We personally enjoy very much the messy look. Your braids don’t have to be perfect. Anything asymmetrical and messy can look attractive and suitable for the commodious modern bride. The braided hairstyles promoted nowadays are for the nonchalant women who want to look effortlessly beautiful on their wedding day. The boho-chic style is the hottest one, and braids occupy a large part of this trend.
Many brides choose to follow the hippie style and wear their hair in braids. And when we refer to this style we don’t mean those vertical simple braids. If you haven’t got the chance to see the new braided hairstyles, take a look at these pictures. The horizontal, circular braids and sophisticatedly mixed braids are the newest trend. The best news is that you don’t need extra knowledge in field to make your braided hairstyle. All you need is your fingers and a lot of mobility.
The most beautiful benefit is that you don’t have to use any special tools to create a romantic braided hair. When it comes to modern braids, the perfect look is actually imperfect. Don’t strive to obtain a flawless appearance because the beauty of braids is in their messy look. There are many designs to choose from.
Not only bohemian brides can adopt this style, but anyone who wants something classy and timelessly romantic can choose this look. Braids can now be arranged in unique up-dos and they look great on vintage brides.
The vast majority of brides have a dream of getting married in a beautiful white wedding dress. But it’s not always the case, giving the fact that this dream may seem a little bit too obsolete or conservative for some women. Those who want to make a fashion statement at their wedding and dazzle all their guests can dress up in a pantsuit or wear anything but a gown. These types of outfits are not necessarily for tomboy-brides, but for anyone who wants to wear something unique and bold at their wedding.
The perfect bridal look doesn’t mean the same for all women, that’s for sure. While some of us want to obtain a princess bridal look, others may prefer an alternative look. This is why you can never know what to call perfect and what not. But we do know one thing for certain: alternative wedding dresses are in for this year’s weddings. More and more women decide to adopt the unconventional look for their wedding and wear something out of the ordinary. If a traditional wedding dress makes you yawn, then you’re surely the alternative style kind of bride.
No one said that all women must walk down the aisle in a white princess wedding dress. Thank God, there are many other styles to choose from. But let’s see some alternatives. The culture inspired wedding dress is a very trendy example in this sense. Now that destination weddings are so popular, the modern bride can choose to wear something locally specific. For instance, if you’re having an African wedding you may want to dress up more culturally. If your wedding is inspired by the Asian or Indian cultures, you have to dress up according to their specific type of bridal wear.
The good news is that you can find different cultural wedding gowns updated to suit a modern wedding. Or, you can keep the traditional design but change the fabric to suit a more contemporary look. Accessorize your cultural look with a few trendy jewels and you’re ready! We adore oriental inspired wedding dresses adorned with amazing floral patterns. If you want something even more outstanding, choose a themed wedding gown. There are many styles to select from. There is nothing more exciting than a fantasy-like wedding dress. You can go Renaissance if you prefer the laced corset style, or Gothic if you enjoy the black and red dramatic gowns with plunging necklines. Those who are getting married in the country can adopt a western theme and wear something with long sleeves, cinched waist and cowboy boots, of course. Those who prefer something bolder can wear a punk rock wedding gown and a feathered hat. Or, choose a personally inspired wedding gown!
Naturally is the new way to go when it comes to modern bridal make-ups. As in many other cases, the 2012 bride is called to adopt a simple, sheer and feminine look for her big day. It’s hip to wear a fluid casual wedding dress inspired by the bohemian style, and it’s even trendier to wear braids as in a boho-chic modern look. We are very excited to see that the natural simple look is growing in popularity among our contemporary brides. If you are not sure whether to go for a bold or soft wedding makeup, take a look at these pictures first!
These beautiful make-ups will definitely convince you that this is the perfect style to adopt. However, if you are not a simple woman, you may not find this style adequate for you. In this case you can either choose to update your style or follow your own. Red lips are still in, but it seems that the blush and nude shades are more original and trendy. Our experts in field advise modern brides to keep their wedding day makeup simple, soft and refined.
There’s no need to stray too much from your natural skin tone and wear too much eyeliner and lipstick just because you have to be in the center of attention. In case you haven’t noticed so far, the pastel makeup inspired by the everyday look is the hottest. Besides, everybody was fascinated by the beautiful simple DIY makeup worn by Kate Middleton at her wedding! If a royalty chooses to do her own makeup and keep things so simple, why shouldn’t you?
It’s true that you have to make it more glam, but this doesn’t mean that you should cross the line and wear whatever looks eye-catchy. Keep close to your natural look. It’s essential for a modern bride to wear something that makes her feel and look like herself! The best advice is to choose one of your most beautiful features and play it up for a unique look. We are all gifted with a pair of beautiful lips or eyes, with a cute nose or cheeks. So decide on a beautiful trait and focus on it when doing your wedding makeup. Make sure the colors suit the nuance of your wedding gown.
If you’re wearing ivory, ecru or another off white dress, try to assort it with your eyes and cheeks. Summer brides can focus on a bronze shade. The natural colored lips and cheeks with smokey eyes is a big trend right now. But how many of you know that this look was the most popular back in the old days? It seems like we’re getting back to more and more trends of the past.
2012 and 2013 brides have many beautiful options when it comes to wedding dresses. Those who are planning a beach nuptial have even more superb wedding dress choices. We are very happy to offer you a few suggestions in this sense. Destination brides are surely the luckiest brides alive because they get to wear a flowy and romantic wedding dress. Nothing can compare to the luxury of a beach venue and the softness of a beach-inspired dress.
The amazing models we’re showing here are from Rosa Clara’s newest 2012 collection. These models are full of unique simple details that we adore. It can be very easy to fall in love with a Rosa Clara wedding dress, especially when they’re looking like this! These creations are innovative, fresh and very modern. This is where all the delicate draping lines and transparent fabrics are coming from. This bridal line is simply sublime and worth browsed by any woman who wants something feminine and sweet for her beach wedding. The collection is called “Soft” and we can understand why.
Rosa Clara’s wedding dresses are always feminine, dainty and full of grace. This is due to the lightweight fabrics this designer like to work with, such as tulle and silk voile. This collection is a tribute to femininity and naturalness. We can’t think of anything more adequate for a beach ceremony than a Soft Rosa Clara wedding dress. Contemporarily chic and fresh, the dresses available in this bridal line are inspired by two main trends: simple lines and spectacular volume. We recommend the models with fluid lines that follow the body shape for beach affairs.
This breezy style is ideal for sandy beach adventures because it is easy to wear and very sensual. But even the voluminous silhouettes are soft enough to suit a casual wedding. The volume they feature is not heavy but diaphanously sumptuous. We enjoy very much the juicy pastel colors used for some of these silhouettes. The beiges, the blushes and the peachy creams are the most seductive derived shades one could choose from for a beach wedding dress.
The high qualitative fabrics are used to enhance the most delicate details. Rosa Clara’s vision of the ideal wedding dress for the contemporary bride is very unique. There is a lot of naturalness going on in her collections, starting with the organic fibers and ending up with the wraps, folds and drapes that surrounds the bride’s body in infinite folds and asymmetrical creases. The diaphanous cuts remind us of the ancient goddess sculptural silhouettes. This is why we recommend this collection to destination brides, especially to those who are having a Greek wedding or simply want a Grecian goddess look for their big day.
Strapless and sleeveless wedding dresses are the most popular choices for both modern and classic brides. But it seems that more and more women prefer to cover their shoulders and arms with a beautiful wrap that can add even more uniqueness and elegance to their bridal look. We are very excited to see that wedding wraps are all the rage right now among contemporary brides. The strapless style can be indeed too boring for a sophisticated bride who wants her wedding gown to look lavish and unique. The strapless style is so popular and overused that even the most beautiful woman can look like a regular bride in it.
So, to escape the uniform standard look we suggest you add an elegant wrap. And this wrap can be a fancy bolero, a sleek shrug, a flowy shawl or an elegant jacket or coat. No matter what you choose to cover your dress with, you can be sure your look is going to be outstanding. It’s easier to differentiate your look among other classic brides by wearing an accessory of this kind on top of your dress. Besides the fact that this wrap will add more to your original bridal look, it will also keep your warm and cozy during the evening.
Brides who are planning a cold season wedding should also take into consideration bring a warp with them to cover their arms and shoulders during the ceremony. But even those who are getting married in the morning or in the evening should opt for this style, just in case the weather gets chillier than they are dressed for. It’s hip to wear a matching bolero with a wedding dress these days. We’ve seen this type of wear even among mothers, bridesmaids and wedding guests. The bolero or the warp should be made of the same fabric of the wedding gown. Otherwise the discrepancy would be just too big. If you can’t seem to find anything to match your dress in the same store, look for something similar in another store or online.
Make sure you examine carefully the texture and color of your dress when making the selection of your wrap. We think that brides who dislike the sleeved designs but don’t want the strapless style either will find this alternative more adequate. It’s trendier to adorn your shoulders and arms with a short bolero than to wear a long sleeved wedding gown that can make you look just too conservative. Lace boleros look amazingly modern and feminine, but the ones made of tulle, illusion and crochet as well. The wrap can feature long, ¾ or short sleeves. Take a look at these gorgeous pictures to get inspired for your own wear.
