Summer is fast approaching and with it comes countless days spent on the beach, good times with friends and general feel-good vibes. But how do you channel that sense of endless sense of fun into your summer wedding look?
There are a number of ways to pull off the perfect summer wedding look. Ask your make-up artist for a fresh, dewy glow to give the illusion that you’ve just returned from a long walk outdoors in the fresh air. Summer beauty tends to focus on a more natural look, so choose a subtle coloured lipstick that enhances your own lip colour.
When it comes to your hair, consider adding a few highlights that frame your face for a naturally sun-kissed look. Girls with mid to long length hair might like to add a few playful plaits to their tousled and beachy looks, whereas short haired brides might like to add some elegant hair slides for a sophisticated yet fun summer look.
The Main Event
Of course, the most important feature on your wedding day (apart from your dashing groom!) is the perfect wedding dress. One of the best parts about summer is the hit of feel-good endorphins that you get from all that sunshine, so your summer wedding dress has to make you feel and look just as fabulous!
With so many dresses to choose from these days, it can be helpful to narrow down your selection to a particular theme. Maybe you’d like your dress to feature some lace detail? Wedding dress designer Maggie Sottero often plays around with lace designs – have a look at the stunning Sonja dress – it’s delicate and dreamy looking, with a pretty lace bodice and sweetheart neckline. This dress evokes images of summer romance and is perfect paired with an intricate flower crown for a pretty summer wedding look.
Maggie Sottero’s Tawny dress is well-suited for those looking for glamour, with a fitted body and a flowing layered tulle skirt to make a statement. The intricate lace and beaded design on this dress adds a touch of romance and will suit a bride who wants to stand out on her big day while channelling her inner princess.
For the summer bride who prefers to keep things simple yet chic, take a look at Rebecca Ingram’s beautiful range of wedding dresses that lean towards the more traditional look with a fresh and youthful update.
