10 timeless trends that every bride should know about

Your wedding is a one-time milestone event that will forever be etched in the pages of your memories. However, the wedding scene is one that is a flurry of constant activity. Trends come and go at lightning speed. So, choosing a wedding dress is no easy feat, as with each passing year you have to make this difficult decision from hundreds of new choices. Add to it that most brides have an engagement that lasts a year or more before they tie the knot. So, it is anything but easy to zero in on the dress that you will be as excited to wear on your wedding day, as the first time you tried it on.

Although fashion trends can be used as a guide to what is in vogue at the time of your wedding, the safest option is to pick a dress that is more classic than it is trendy. This way, your dress will always be timeless and you need not worry about your look being dated few months later.

Whether you are a bride who loves classic wedding dress features, or a modern bride who wants to stay away from anything associated with another age, we think you should definitely take a look at the list we have here. We are sure that there is something here for everyone, with interesting updates to traditional classics. So check it out and get ready to be blown away.

Laser cut lace

Brides either love lace, or hate it! There is no other way about it.

Lace dresses have forever been tied to weddings, and it has an unparalleled elegance. Nevertheless, it isn’t equally liked by all. Not all women are smitten by the whimsical charm of floral details that flutter and scatter as a thin layer over a sheath of fabric underneath. One of the reasons for this maybe that the definition of the details on lace are often hazy, and not crisp. However, laser cut lace adds that necessary touch that makes the result very fine and well-defined. Laser cut lace simply means that the details have precision and are very evident. This adds more style to a wedding dress and instantly makes the bride look prettier. This process allows designers to create elaborate works of art, and this is usually found in the necklines, sleeves, back and even hemlines of the skirts. When lace appliques have this finish, the dress has a 3D look, that is simply gorgeous!

The Mori Lee 2821 is a perfect example of the beauty of laser cut lace. The details span the bodice and thin beyond the waistline, only to reappear at the bottom of the skirt and culminate in a scalloped hemline. The thin embellished waistband is removable, but when retained, it emphasizes the femininity of this gown. Take a look at how beautiful the laser cut alencon lace appliques are. Don’t you think this gown is just as fashionable as it is elegant?

You will find more stunning gowns with this feature in the Mori Lee and Angelina Faccenda collection at Best for Bride.

Shoestring straps

If there is one thing that makes everyone around a bride, including her, uncomfortable, it is an ill-fitting strapless gown. The last thing you should have to worry about on your wedding day, is if your bodice will stay put, or cause an embarrassing accident. Nonetheless, many brides aren’t fond of wedding gowns with sleeves and thick straps, and so decide to go with strapless gown despite how uncomfortable it can become. Strapless gowns are a very feminine and romantic choice. However, they aren’t good on brides who are either large-chested or small-chested. A gown with straps is always the better option for these brides.

Shoestring or spaghetti strap gowns are dresses that will rescue you from the dilemma of choosing between a strapless dress and one with sleeves. Sexy, yet supportive, these tiny shoulder straps are all you need for the gown to stay up, and you do not compromise on style in any way. Most gowns that feature shoestring straps also come with amazing low-cut back details, that will wow your wedding guests. So, it is a choice for the fashion-conscious bride; a dress which is modest and glamorous at the same time. It couldn’t get better than this, don’t you think?

We love how the shoulder straps play a major role in balancing out the heavy skirt of this Mori Lee 5416. A strapless or sweetheart bodice would make it look like just another gown, perhaps a tad incomplete even. This simple addition of the spaghetti straps, however, transforms the dress into a romantic and sensual gown. It also draws focus to the shoulders and decolletage, making it the perfect choice for a bride who has worked hard on toning her figure in time for her big day. You may also like to check out the Mori Lee 5411 and 6818 that look just as gorgeous with this feature.

Illusion backs

The illusion trend is one of the best wedding dress features of this century. It goes hand in hand with lace, and is the perfect way to hide those problem areas, or highlight your best features, when chosen properly. What we love most about illusion backs is the drama that comes with it.

It is essentially mysterious, and the surprise of seeing how glamorous a bride looks from the back in an illusion neckline is astounding. Subtly sexy, it has a romantic and delicate finish that can make any bride a ravishing princess. Most designs also feature a strand of fabric buttons that run through the center, and this only accentuates the beautiful effect of this design feature. Although it requires some forethought in deciding how to support your bust, since typical undergarments may not work suitably with these gowns, we think your effort is well-worth the effort. And, it isn’t too complicated. You can either choose a backless bra or have your seamstress add cups to the gown for the necessary support.

The Mori Lee collection is renowned for its fantastic illusion back dresses. It is in fact, quite difficult to pick a favorite, so let’s go with just one of the many gowns we love. The 5011 is a gown that is magical, when viewed from the back. A sheer stretch of fabric wraps around the torso, with a strand of fabric buttons punctuating the center. Tiny wisps of feathery, floral details emanate from the edges, forming a border along the outer edges of the sheer bodice and framing the sheer sleeves. Although it is a dress that completely covers the back, it is a beauty that a modern bride will fall in love with. Check out the front of this gown by visiting this link here, to understand what we mean.

Romantic ruffles

Ruffles are a beautiful feminine feature, and they can be used tastefully, to enhance the appearance of a gown. When placed in the right places and in the right quantity, ruffles can make your curves more pronounced, or downplay any unsightly flaws and bulges. This camouflaging effect is perhaps, one of the reasons that this style element has always been sought after. When ruffles are used in lavish doses, it can even take on the appearance of feathers and transform a gown completely.

Smaller and tighter ruffles have a drastically different effect. The impact of ruffles also varies according to the style of the gown’s skirt. It can look contemporary when added to the flared skirt of a fit and flare silhouette, while it creates a classic finish for an A-line gown.

Since we are talking about timeless trends that will fascinate today’s woman, let us look at the former. The Mori Lee 5409 Venice Lace gown is a befitting example. While the snugly fitting bodice is embellished with elaborate lace details, the skirt has a flourish of ruffles that cascade like a waterfall and pile at the feet. The sweetheart neckline and the placement of the ruffles in such a manner that light bounces off the delicate fabric, renders this gorgeous gown a stylish and sophisticated choice for the confident bride.

Simple sheath

Simplicity is not only the sheath’s beauty factor, it is also it’s unique selling point. A sheath silhouette is one that naturally drapes over a bride’s curves, considerably accentuating her feminine charm. If you look at the general trends that have come and gone over the years, you will find that the sheath is a standard that has always been in the limelight. This is precisely the reason it is a timeless trend. Additionally, it is a no-fuss style that will be loved by both the minimalist bride and the ones who love classics.

Unlike the trumpet and other fit and flare designs, this doesn’t cling to your body, and this makes it very chic. Another unique factor of the sheath or column, is that it can be easily dressed up with the proper use of accessories. So, if you have your heart set on showcasing a unique wedding jewelry set that you have chosen, the sheath wedding dress may be your best option to beautifully compliment it.

The Mori Lee 2809 is a sheath that is a masterpiece of beauty, all by itself. Gently draping over the natural frame of the bride, the dress enhances the beauty of the bride’s original curves and is great on slender frames. Delicate beading decorates the classic V-neckline, and straps and continues into a dramatic low-cut illusion design at the back. This dress also features laser cut lace details, another beautiful feature that we discussed in the beginning of this article. Altogether, it is a dress that is difficult to pass by, and we simply love it for all its interesting details.

Light colors

One trend with staying power, that has always been the forte of the bold and beautiful bride, is the colored wedding dress. We do not however mean the deep, dark colors. Lighter colors can add an interesting update to the white wedding dress, and they are always a fashion statement. This is a way to shine on your big day by wearing something that is unique, but in a different way.

You can also consider this idea if you have a specific color theme, and want the right shade that will allow you to be a part of it. When you choose a color that compliments your complexion, you will also look more beautiful than you possibly would, in a white dress. Colors like peach, blush and baby blue are beautiful choices. The other option is to consider dresses in shades like gold or silver, which are also beautiful alternatives for the traditional white wedding dress. Suitable for both the traditional and modern bride, these dresses add an instant touch of glamour and make the bride look even more glamorous.

The Mori Lee 2789 is a mesmerizing beauty that is featured in light gold here. The rich embroidered details add finesse to the metallic finish of the satin fabric. This dress is so glamorous, that it is almost red carpet-worthy. Adding extra dimension to already luxurious fabric and embroidered details is the illusion neckline with shimmering details that extend into the bodice, and also frame the neckline in the form of a necklace. This dress is a shining example of how a lace dress can be anything, but old style.

10 common makeup mistakes to avoid on your wedding day

Your wedding day is the one occasion when all eyes will be on you, and you do not want to disappoint. It is easy to imagine yourself as a beautiful bride. However, making it a reality is not just as easy. Good looks don’t happen overnight. Skin care and grooming should be an ongoing task to ensure you are in top form on your wedding day.

Despite your skin and hair being in top shape on your wedding day, you may not look as good as you wanted to, if your makeup isn’t done well. In fact, your choice of makeup can make or break your overall look. Hence it is important to pay close attention to how you dress yourself up on your wedding day.

Here is a list of the most common wedding makeup mistakes that brides commonly make. Stay one step ahead of the game by preparing in advance, so these do not prevent you from looking great on the most important day of your life.

1.Not having a specific idea of how your makeup should be on the day

Rather than go with what you think will be good, or leave things to the discretion of your makeup artist, prepare yourself with a specific idea of how you should look on your wedding day. Nail this look at your makeup trial session.

Before you book your makeup artist, have a trial session where you can see exactly how you will look on your wedding day. Look for inspiration in  magazines and off the internet, and take these with you to your appointment, as references. This will give your makeup artist a framework to work with. By checking out how this will be during the trial, you can recognize whether it will work, or if it is better to make changes to your idea.

2.Not finding the perfect foundation color

For those of you brides who will be doing your wedding makeup yourself, your wedding day is not the time to open a brand new bottle of foundation. You should ideally have settled on the shade to wear, at least a few weeks in advance.

Wearing foundation that is darker than your skin tone will give you an artificial, painted look, while wearing one that is a shade or two lighter can make you look all dolled up. Neither will be right. Make sure you find the right shade, as this will be the best way to enhance your looks and cover up natural problem areas and have crystal clear skin on the day. If you can’t find your foundation easily, try to mix up foundation colors till you find the right shade. Just remember that your wedding day shouldn’t be the occasion to first try it out. You should have figured out the right proportions to mix, well in advance. Only then will you avoid making a mistake on the day.

3.Not using waterproof makeup, especially eye makeup

Even if you have to spend extra on waterproof makeup, it is worth every penny. Water resistant eye makeup is an absolute essential for your wedding day. Even if you manage to keep your tears at bay, your eye makeup can get ruined quickly and look far from fresh by the end of the day, if it isn’t waterproof. So, buy mascara, eye liner and eye shadow that can withstand your emotional outbursts on this very special day.

If your wedding is in the warmer months, it is a good idea to invest in good quality waterproof makeup not just for your eyes, but for every part of your face. This way, you do not have to worry about the makeup running when you sweat, and you can retain your freshly made up look all through the evening.

4.Overly blushing bride

Excess use of blush will ruin your wedding day pictures. You may want to stand out from the rest of the crowd, but don’t let it be at the cost of looking too pink. Apply blush only to the apples of your cheeks and blend, blend, blend till they look like they are part of your facial features. Also, it is best to go light with color. Overly pink shades can be an eyesore and look excessively pronounced in your wedding pictures. So, stick to shades that you have used before.

If you use bronzer, blend it into the blush, so it doesn’t stand out distinctly. Make sure that you already have tried it out and made sure that the shade works, and you aren’t experimenting with it on the day of the event.

5. Looking very unnatural

Your wedding day is the right occasion to dress up your best, but this doesn’t mean you should end up looking like someone else altogether. We believe that the best looking brides are those who look like prettier versions of themselves, through the right application of makeup. So, aim for this. Stick with colors that just accentuate your features and add more definition to your natural look. Don’t use unnatural tints, unless absolutely necessary.

Cat eyes and smoky makeup, emerald eye shadow and glitter on your cheek may be fine, but make sure you try it out before the day, to make sure that it looks good and that you can comfortably carry it off. Also remember that smoky eye makeup often doesn’t look too great in photographs. Your photos could end up looking odd with shadows around the eyes, so check the chances of this happening. Tans, browns, natural pinks, cream and taupe are shades that look good in almost every setting. So, focus on this palette, instead of reds, purples and oranges. If you must wear that bright red lipstick on your wedding day, balance it out by keeping the rest of your makeup simple. Too many colorful details can look loud, and you may end up looking overly dressed and unattractive.

6. Overdoing your eye makeup

We just mentioned how smoky eye make up may not be such a great idea for your wedding day. It can easily spread and doesn’t show up as well in photographs. Although the eyes are very important to enhancing your overall wedding day look, do it sensibly so it doesn’t look overly dramatic.

This article on the Huff Post suggests using black only in the mascara, for your eye makeup. Keep the rest of the colors soft, and it will look a lot better. We recommend cream makeup, since it lasts longer and is easier to apply. Powder is fine when applied, but it doesn’t stay as long. Another important factor is to consider the color of your eyes when deciding on your eye makeup. The colors you choose should subtly enhance the natural beauty of your eye color. If you will be using false eyelashes, do not add more than is required, as it can look a little crazy. When filling in your brows, do so with eye shadow that matches the color on your upper eyelid. Follow the natural curve of the brow for the best results.

7.Let the skin glow through

Many brides make the mistake of piling on too much makeup that they end up blocking the natural look of the skin. Use only as much makeup as is necessary, and go easy with the foundation, blush and base makeup. If you have naturally good skin, airbrushing is a good option. This allows your skin to shine through and nothing looks as good as healthy and naturally glowing skin.

Thick layers of makeup also tend to look cakey, and can make you look older in photos. It is essential to balance it all out, and stay with what feels comfortable and doesn’t look too much. Add concealer only where absolutely necessary, and use the foundation appropriately to cover up any flaws. Don’t create a mask over your natural skin. This will look lifeless. Trust your natural beauty to shine through, and use makeup only to enhance it where necessary. You will look lovely and dewy when you do this.

8.Overdoing the lips

When the rest of your makeup is complete, you may feel that your lips look washed out and pale, and you must color it well to make it blend in. Don’t do too much painting, or you will regret it. Just apply the necessary layer of lipstick, don’t be too generous with it. Exfoliate your lips before you apply lipstick, so it looks soft and the lipstick sticks for much longer.

If your lipstick is naturally glossy, or bright, it may be good if you skip the gloss. Too much shine can cause your lips to lose definition, will make it look flat and your lipstick may even spread. Lip stain is always better than lipstick, as it lasts longer. The other problem with lip gloss is that it will come in the way of your kiss and your groom will end up with a matching lip color, which we don’t think could possibly look good!

9.Getting the tan wrong

A healthy tan looks great on a bride, but overdoing it, or using fake tan lotions can ruin the chances of looking good. Some fake tans look good in person, but end up giving an orange look in pictures . When going for tan sessions, we suggest that you do it well in advance. This will save you from any disastrous problems closer to your wedding day.

One likely problem is your skin ending up with streaks from a previous tanning session. You can avoid this problem if you build up your tan over a series of session, instead of in a single intense session closer to the wedding day. This will also prevent you from going overboard with the tan.

10.Not setting the makeup with powder or allowing it time to set

The last step when you apply makeup, should be applying a loose layer of translucent powder over your makeup. Alternately, you can also use a makeup up setting spray. These are the right ways to make sure your makeup stays. If you skip this step, you will find that your makeup fades as time passes, and you will end up looking tired and with soggy makeup by the end of the day.

However, don’t use too much powder to set your lipstick, as this will cause it to fade faster. Instead layer your lipstick with lip stain and line it to keep your lips defined throughout the day. Long-lasting lipstick is a good choice. Also, aim to finish your makeup on schedule, as it takes time for it to settle. If not, you will be caught with it smearing with the smallest move, and repairing it will not be too easy.

That wraps up the list of the different makeup mistakes that can happen, and how you can either avoid them or fix them.

Your wedding day is one of the most special days in your life, and looking perfect is absolutely necessary to remember this day fondly. Although you may be tempted to do all your can to look as great as possible,

Expert answers to 7 tricky bridesmaid situations

Bridesmaids are the women who share the stage with you on your wedding day. This is a position that you should confer after thoroughly thinking it through. This is because they have an important role to play at your wedding; it is one where they will have to handle several responsibilities.

However careful or calculating you may be when choosing your bridesmaids, you can still end up with unexpected surprises or awkward situations in this area at different stages of the wedding planning process. Sometimes, the issues may crop up right from the time you start choosing your bridesmaids, at other times it may be an issue that suddenly popped up when you thought everything was progressing beautifully.

Here are some issues that brides have had to tide over, and let us look at the best way to handle each of them.

Q. Who to choose when you have more than one Bestie?

Enter Friends, with Monica who had to choose between Rachel and Phoebe, or Jules on Cougar Town with Ellie and Laurie! This is a situation we’ve seen time and again. If you have always been certain of who to choose as your Maid of Honor, and its been mutually agreed upon, lucky you! If not, do not worry, we have a few solutions for you to consider.

  • Leave it to the girls to decide among themselves, if you think that is the best approach. Of course, be prepared to go with whoever they decide to choose, if you take this route.
  • Ask them both. There is no problem with having two Maids of Honor, and it can perhaps be easier on them too as they can share the responsibilities and you needn’t feel guilty about your decision. This is the easiest and most practical approach, especially if you seem to be getting nowhere with making a choice.
  • If you have a sibling who you trust to take care of everything well, it is best to ask her and avoid stressing over it further. This will also save you from the problem of choosing between friends.
  • When considering your choices, give priority to responsibility, availability and organizing ability. Remember your maid of honor should be available and able to make things easier for you, and not just someone you choose so she is happy.

Q. What to do if a bridesmaid is pregnant or a new mom at the time of the wedding

Since you’ll be engaged for a long time, don’t expect all your bridesmaids to be in their current situations at the time of your wedding. They may or may not! However, having a bridesmaid who is pregnant or a new mom doesn’t have to change too many things. The best approach in this situation is to ask her what she would be comfortable doing. If your friend would still love to continue being your bridesmaid, trust her with it. If she is nervous and would prefer to back out, it is best to go with her choice. If your friend would like to continue in the role, make sure you do all you can so she is comfortable. You may have to make a few changes to plan when ordering her dress. It may have to be altered or you may have to choose it closer to the wedding. So, plan the logistics accordingly. Also, entrust her with light responsibilities, given her situation. She will already be handling a hundred extra things of her own, so don’t stress her out with more than she can handle. Just talk to her and find out all you can about how you can make things easy for her, and we are sure it will all work out well for both of you.

Q. When your bridesmaids hate the dress you chose

It is impossible to make everyone happy, and yes, it is your happiness that ultimately matters. So, if your choice for the bridesmaids dress doesn’t find favor with the girls, you can still stick to it. All the same, remember that there are several ways in which you can work around this and find a choice that they can be happier about.

Many brides make the mistake of choosing bridesmaids dresses in unusual colors, that many girls find unappealing. The mix and match bridesmaids look is one of the best ways to tide over this issue and get you what you want, while your bridesmaids are also happy. You can keep two or three factors uniform, like the color, neckline, hemline or designer collection, and allow your girls to choose any dress they like as long as these factors are met. Find out how to do this right, by checking out this previous article of ours. The other way is to go with a neutral color or universally flattering pattern and step up the style with colorful accessories or bold fashion items. Here are some suggestions for some colors that work this way in this post.

Spend some time researching your options and be open to ideas that fit in with your wedding aesthetic. You may not only find a choice that everyone adores, but it may also give you something unique that sets your wedding apart. Also ask your bridesmaids if they have any suggestions and then make a choice that nobody can totally hate. This way, you’ll be happy and so will your bridesmaids.

Q. Your bridesmaids think they are paying too much for everything

When a bridesmaid agrees to be one, she knows she signs up to spend some money for your wedding. So, it is part of the deal. Nevertheless, it is up to you to be reasonable about what you choose, so you don’t make your friends regret their decision later. This bridesmaid voices her concerns, in this post on Apartment Therapy, and she tells us how difficult it is for her to cough up all the money she is expected to spend for her friend.

Remember that this applies to your bridesmaids too. They have to pay for a dress which they may never wear again, pay for the bridal shower and wedding gift, hair, makeup, accessories, and these things can quickly add up. So, if you value your friendship, it is only right that you are understanding and either stick to reasonable plans where they have to pay only what they can afford, or volunteer to pay for anything extravagant. The best approach is to have options for everything from the dress to the gift, and allow them to pick from the choices based on their comfort. Your wedding shouldn’t leave any of your friends in a financial crunch, and unless you have been on the receiving end with the same friends previously, it is only wrong if you do. If you think the dress price exceeded your idea, or if they have paid more than they expected to, you can always buy them their accessories like shoes or jewelry and take that burden off them. They deserve it for all the hard work (and money!) they are putting in to make your day extra-special.

Q. What to do when one of my bridesmaids just doesn’t get along with the rest

Your bridesmaids are a team, and they do have to spend some time together to plan their roles and responsibilities properly. Having a bossy bridesmaid or one who always seems to disagree with the rest can throw the entire situation into chaos. So, the first step is to recognize the likelihood of any such problems arising, before you pop your question to your bridesmaids. If there is a difficult friend in your list, consider whether it is more important that they be a bridesmaid than avoiding arguments among your bridesmaids. If you think it is, you may have to take on an active role to avoid potential problems. This article on Huffington post gives some practical solutions in this regard. Firstly, avoid tricky situations that can lead to friction.  You can delegate responsibilities like the shower to a particular person, even outside the bridesmaid group to avoid arguments. Delegate only specific responsibilities to her, so she won’t have to cross paths with an opponent. Pair her off with those who can handle her with tact. Finally, before your wedding day, sit her down and personally ask her to put aside her differences and cooperate, so your day goes well. If she cares even an ounce for your happiness, she will handle it well and make sure that the excitement of your day is not ruined due to her petty and unnecessary problems.mix ‘n’ match bridesmaids dress

Q. What to do when a bridesmaid can’t keep the wedding planning details a secret

Whether it is because she is super-excited about your wedding, or simply jealous of what you have, it is simply wrong to tell others your wedding planning secrets. If your bridesmaid does this by mistake, let it go, but make sure to ask her nicely to never repeat it. Despite this, if she continues with gossiping, it may be better if you act immediately. If you wait too long, she can cause your wedding surprises to be ruined by her inconsiderate behavior. Aim for a solution where you involve only those who can keep their thoughts to themselves, in the planning. Don’t make it into a bitter problem and spoil the entire mood by arguing with the person who spills the beans every time. Be discrete and don’t give any details if she keeps asking you for what’s going on. If you want to handle it diplomatically, and not create any unpleasant situations, assign a generic project to her and leave her with it. Make sure it is one that won’t make a difference even if she goes around telling the town what is involved, and it’ll keep her busy from interfering with the rest.girls-685787_1280

 

Q. Is it alright if my bridesmaid lives far away and will be arriving just in time for the wedding

This isn’t too rare these days. After all, you may have friends right from the time you were a little girl, who are close to you despite the physical distance. Although it may not be easy to shop for the bridesmaid dress or plan the shower from long-distance, it is still possible. Where dress shopping is concerned, you can simply mail her the options or share links to the collection online, and ask her for her opinions. Once the choice is made, you should order it for her, along with the dresses for your other bridesmaids. For this you need to know her dress size. Make sure that your bridesmaid is measured by a professional seamstress, so you get the measurements right before ordering the dress. Since you will mostly be ordering all the bridesmaids dresses in one go and from the same dye lot, make sure you know this before you place the order. Once the dress arrives, ship it to her right away. This will allow her to get the alterations done, so it is ready to be worn when she travels for the wedding. Where the bachelorette parties and bridal showers are concerned, it is up to your maid of honor and other bridesmaids to plan it. If you would like her to attend, see if it is possible to move these events closer to the wedding date. Since you want her to be involved in the wedding as much as the rest of the wedding party is, you can consider designating some day-of tasks to her. Nevertheless, remember that she may be tired from the journey and so accommodate that factor into the plans as well.
