Weddings have so many traditions, it can sometimes be difficult to remember them all; so which ones should you keep up with and which ones to pass on? Here are our recommendations!
Definitely wear a wedding gown! As frugal as some brides are, passing up wearing a wedding gown is not recommended. You don't need to go with the huge ball gown, but you do want to wear something that lets you stand out and shine on your big day; you want to be noticeable in the crowd, so look for something that compliments your style, makes a statement and is you times two! Note that you don't need to keep the tradition of wearing white, in fact majority of brides wear ivory or champagne as it is more flattering to most skin tones, giving you that bridal glow instead of a washed out drab. This fall, blush pink is our go-to, it's allure and romance is stunning and unique creating a memorable statement.
Veils and blushers were originally used to ward off evil spirits for a new bride, these days wearing a veil is personal preference. There are so many options for accessories, depending on your gown, venue and theme, you may choose to not wear a veil. You may have always imagined yourself wearing the whole bridal ensemble, but if a veil just doesn't seem to look right, or makes you feel silly, don't worry, it's not a must these days. If you do decide to keep this tradition remember, your accessories should complete the look, not BE the look. You don't want to over accessorize, taking away from your face or not looking like yourself can give you regrets once your pictures come back.
One tradition we love? Something blue! We adore the lovely blue shoes or touch of blue in the accessories. This tradition is so sweet, symbolizing purity, love and fidelity; but to us it is much more stylish. A little pop of color adds fun and excitement to your look. A hint of blue in earrings will bring attention up to your face, also adding detail to portrait photos. Blue shoes makes for some adorable photos as well, it also peaks through as you walk down the isle, taking the eye from your perfectly manicured toes then up to your glowing face.
