A great way for style savvy brides to set their wedding day look apart is to go bold. Choose one element of your wedding day look that really makes a statement, and go for it. Some wedding gowns have a built-in statement that is inherent in the design – a one-shoulder strap covered in layers of chiffon flowers, a dramatic, architectural side bow, or a daringly low back.
But picking a knockout statement gown isn’t the only way to be a bold bride. The most simple wedding dress can serve as the perfect backdrop to a fantastic layered necklace, stunning chandelier earrings or an oversized hair piece. Even bold red (or candy pink!) lips and a dramatic 1940s lined eyelid can take a wedding day look to a whole new level. Short dress brides can up the ante on their wedding day look by choosing out of this world heels – Louboutins or otherwise, if they have ruffles, feathers or a bold hue they will definitely make a style statement.
Though I can go on and on about ways to make a wedding day fashion statement, the most important piece of advice is to choose something that really speaks to you and brings attention to a great asset. In the fabulous photo above by photographer extraordinaire Jasmine Star, the bride (pseudo-bride, since it was a photography workshop and the couple was already married, ha) went bold with a fantastical bridal hat / headpiece. It’s definitely an over the top couture look, but she rocks it. And, it brings attention right to her gorgeous eyes. A style statement success, if I do say so myself.
P.S. If you love the look, see more pics from the workshop here on Jasmine’s blog.
