Bridal Style: Neat & Nautical
Last week we shared some nautical wedding inspiration, including ideas for incorporating backdrops into your big day. We gave you a sneak peek at a bride and her maids taking photos in front of a nautical photo backdrop and we’re back with more bridal style inspiration.
The gorgeous bouquet from Gertie Mae’s Floral Studio has an organic feel to contrast the sleek fitted style of the wedding gown and a pop of orange is an unexpected spin on the traditional navy nautical color palette. We’re seeing a trend toward big bouquets and with a simple dress, a bunch of blooms is the perfect accessory.
Style tip: If you’re on board with a trendy wedding theme like nautical, make sure to incorporate elements that are uniquely you, like a pop of your favorite color!
The bride was styled with an updo, pulled to the side, and drop earrings with pearls. Fresh and natural looking makeup with a little bit of shimmer on the eye, completed the clean and classic look.
Beauty tip: Don’t want anything too dramatic? Play up your natural assets with eyelash extensions. This subtle change makes a big impact!
Since the bride’s hair was pinned up, the bridesmaids’ hair was styled more casually, but pulled back from their faces. Susan Gramling handled hair styling and Brielle Brenner and Hope Ferguson worked together on makeup. When you have two makeup artists working on your bridal party, make sure that they are on the same page about your bridal style. Again, rosy cheeks and soft pink lipstick give these girls a glow without anything too dramatic. Each bridesmaid could show her unique style with her accessories, as long as they had pearls.
Style tip: As the bride, you may want all of your maids to wear their hair the same way. Similar styles, with slight modifications (a twist here, a clip there, or even hair parted on different sides) allows everyone to look their best without forcing hair in to a perfectly uniform style.
