Laugh if you want, but the how to style your hair on your wedding day is a pretty big deal and will effect your overall wedding look.

First off, do you want to wear your hair up or down? Al lot of brides will try desperately to grow there hair out as long as they can for their wedding day with the intention of wearing it long beautiful locks. But if your facial features are shown off best with a shorter hairstyle you may want to forgo the push for longer lengths. A Short spunky do can be made elegant plenty easy. Regardless, if you do want to wear your hair down for your wedding we have two suggestions: Firstly, don't just wear it in a straight everyday look and secondly add some sort of hairpiece or veil. We don't suggest having your hair down and straight because it is rather casual and everyday look. Adding some soft waves or curls is a great way to add a little extra umph and elegance to your look. Also, with adding a hairpiece you will further distinguish yourself as the bride particularly from your bridesmaids. Wearing your hair up does tend to more easily give you added elegance, but, like when deciding if you should have a short or long hair cut, deciding between an up and down do will require the same facial feature considerations. Furthermore, you will still want to consider the addition of a veil, headband, tiara, or other hairpiece to mark you as queen of the day. Besides, what bride wants to turn down the opportunity for a little added sparkle?

How Guests Can Dress Their Best for a Fall Wedding

How a Guest Can Dress Their Best As a guest, getting dressed up for an event like a wedding can be a little tricky. There are questions of how formal or casual the wedding will be; if it will be indoors or outdoors; if there is a specific theme that the bride wants people to adhere to; what colors should be avoided in order to not blend in with the wedding party; and even what the fashion trends are for the season. So, the question in this blog article is, what should guests wear to a fall wedding?

Warm Tones

Dressing warm for a fall wedding does not necessarily mean dressing to withstand cold weather. If the wedding is indoors, guests have a lot more wiggle room to show off their wedding ready bodies in elegant warm toned dresses, ties, and suites. A light strapped dress or even an elegant strapless gown can work in any fall wedding. The key for a strapless or thinly strapped dressed is keeping the color tone warm: Think maroon, custard, forest green, navy, rose, orange, brown, and black. Other elements that are trending this fall are mod and tea shaped dresses, as well as lace and crochet patterns.

Not only do they work better for the colder weather, but the knee length ensures a classy look , and the floor length dress allows you to create a mixed look of formal and casual. With such a simple floor length dress like the one below, we would suggest a sparkling hair piece like a crystal comb or some large dazzling earrings.

Instead, go for a lively color that embodies the same intensity of the sun hitting fall leaves. You will want to pay attention to how formal the wedding style is when deciding between a mini skirt or a strapless knee length, but regardless you can still get that spunk from that perfect pop of color. Or, if you want to give yourself a little more edge, go for a dress with a gorgeous pattern on it! Patterns work great in the fall and will gladly say "I like to dance more than that monotone dress".
