Wedding Hairstyles To Match Your Wedding Dress

The wedding dress is the star of the show, but your hair is your crowning glory. Be at your most beautiful by making sure that those two work hand-in-hand on your big day!

Here are some ideas to get your hairstyle brainstorming session started:

Chignon x Sweetheart Ball Gown

This style is princess-meets-couture in every way possible. Sophisticated, elegant, yet it is every bit as romantic as the wedding dress of our childhood dreams. Finish this look with a chignon. It’s the best way to accentuate the lovely details of the gown — from the sweetheart neckline to the swooping low back — as well as your collarbones and shoulders. You look like royalty! Check out this Eddy K Couture gown for inspiration.

Updo x Boat Neck

There’s something special about the boat neck’s simplicity. It’s very feminine, modest, yet when styled ideally, it radiates elegance. Wear your hair in an updo to match this neckline. This is a classic design, and anything that covers it would have the tendency to take away from its beauty. It’s definitely a sight, and people need to see it! This Amare Couture gown is a great example.

High Ponytail x High Neckline

Did I actually just write high ponytail? Indeed, I did, and I stand by my word. While most brides prefer the classic romantic route, edgy brides must have their way, too! And this combination feels like the way to go. Keep your hair away from your face and allow your dress to take centerstage. A sleek ponytail will do just the trick, but it won’t be silent on the sidelines. It’s every bit as adventurous and elegant as you are. Don’t believe me? Check out this Justin Alexander Signature piece.

Loose Waves x V-neck

The v-neck definitely creates a beautiful, feminine silhouette, and it’s perfectly finished with loose waves. Weddings are a wind-in-your-hair kind of occasion anyway, and you deserve to feel as carefree and beautiful as you look. Shake your locks, throw that bouquet, and feel extra confident in your skin. This Allure Bridals gown tells you exactly what I mean.

#Figure It Out: The Pros & Cons of Different Dress Styles on Different Body Shapes

All brides-to-be come to realize that wedding dress shopping has its own lingo. All of the different terms and names of designers can be overwhelming. But after you read this article and take a trip to Lotus Bridal, you will be a pro and have an understanding of what dress shape matches the vibe of your wedding & makes you look and feel your absolute best!

A-Line Wedding Dress

What is it?

An A-Line dress features a fitted bodice that flares from the waist, gradually getting wider as it goes towards the floor, mimicking a capital letter “A”.

Should I Say Yes?

This dress looks good on any body type. It emphasizes a teeny-tiny waist line while maintaining a classic, bridal feel.

Should I Say No?

If you are looking for a dress that shows off your booty, stay away from A-Line.

Trumpet & Mermaid Gowns

What are they?

Both Trumpet & Mermaid gowns are known for their body-hugging shapes. Trumpets flare out starting in the middle of the thigh. Mermaid dresses flare out starting at the knee, allowing for a more dramatic flare or “poof” at the bottom.

Should I Say Yes?

If you love your curves and want to show off that sexy-bod then this is the style for you! This dress elongates brides while showing off an hour glass figure.

Should I Say No?

If your main concern for your wedding day is mobility & ease of walking, then consider staying away from mermaid & trumpet dresses. Girls who do not want to bring attention to their hips often do not like the fit of these dresses.

Ballgown

What is it?

The Ballgown is best known for being the “princess dress” due to it’s full skirt and fitted bodice.

Should I Say Yes?

Lotus Bridal rejects the idea that a girl is too big or too small to wear a ballgown. If you want to feel like a princess on your big day, then the girls at Lotus Bridal will help you match it with the perfect tiara!

Should I Say No?

One thing to consider is that ballgown dresses can get heavy. Another factor to consider is your venue. If the space is on the smaller side, you might want to stay away from such a voluminous gown.

5 Sneaky Ways to Incorporate Your Something Blue into Your Big Day!

We’re all familiar with the bridal tradition of wearing “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue,” but what does it represent?

The Olde English rhyme outlines four good luck charms the bride carries on her the day of the wedding to bring different fortunes. Something Old represents continuity in marriage, something new is for a bright future, something borrowed is sharing in the happiness from another married couple, and last but not least, the blue symbolizes love and fidelity.

For the brides interested in keeping this tradition alive on her wedding day, we came up with 5 cute ways to seamlessly incorporate “Something Blue” into your ensemble.

1. Blue Opal Jewelry

Blue Opal is the perfect modern twist on the expected sapphire bling. We’re seeing the opal trend all over the Internet, so why not be the first to make it a wedding trend?

2. Blue Ribbon Around Your Bouquet

4. Nail Color

Pick a light blue color that will look great with your white dress!

Dress Like a Middleton on Your Wedding Day!

On the off chance you haven’t had access to Wifi for two whole days…Kate Middleton’s sister, Pippa, got married this weekend at St. Mark’s Church in Englefield, England! A big congratulations to her and the royal family! As expected, her wedding dress set new bridal goals for all of us. Her classically beautiful lace gown was  designed by Giles Deacon.

“I was thrilled to work with Pippa on her wedding dress,” Giles Deacon said, “The dress is constructed with a cap sleeve, high neckline and features a corseted bodice with draping to the front and a heart-shaped detail at the back.”

Let Lotus Bridal help you recreate this look so you can feel like royalty on your big day!

We chose a Le Papillon gown that mimics Pippa’s, not only by the lace overlay, but also in that it has a similar cap sleeve and a natural waistline. What is great about a natural waistline is that it accentuates the smallest part of your body helping you look and feel your thinnest. You can take this ensemble one step further by adding a petticoat under the gown to give you an Aline shape. Pair this dress with a cathedral veil and diamond headpiece and TAH DAH! You got the royal look!

Lotus Bridal has everything you need to complete your vision including accessories, shoes, veils, and bridal party dresses. Call today to schedule your appointment.
