Bridal Beauty 101: Finding That Perfect Style for Your Gown

You’ve found that dress of your dreams and now it’s time to focus on putting the entire look together with hair and makeup.  Need help? Well, we’ve got you covered, because today we’re joining forces with Jennie Kay for a quick run-down on all things beauty with tips + tricks on achieving that glam wedding day look, no matter the gown or style you’re dreaming of. Let’s get started.

LOOK 1: CASUAL GLAMOUR

Your style? Laid-back with a big ol’ side of sophistication. Which means rocking a stunning gown that shows some skin and hair + make-up that is just as sleek and glamorous. Jennie Kay suggests pairing your dream dress with a rope braid pony or soft low bun that is dressy enough for a wedding, but is also completely effortless.

LOOK 2: VINTAGE ELEGANCE

You’re a vintage-inspired lady looking to rock that elegant lace number, but still maintain a modern, yet sexy edge. Jennie Kay’s tip? A bright red lip for that much-needed side of sophistication and a stunning updo that frames one side of the face, plus sweeps across the back in a beautiful style that is reminiscent of the past.

“Look at the way you wore your hair at your initial dress fitting. It usually mimics your initial idea on how your hair should be.” – Jennie Kay Beauty

LOOK 3: BOHO BEAUTY

Crave a look that is soft, romantic and free, just like you and your wedding? Then this fab boho look from Jennie Kay Beauty is sooo for you. Simply keep your hair natural in wave and texture and add three gorgeous braids for a little pop of WOW.  Want to add a little glamour to the look? Really make those eyes stand out with just the right shade of shadow and mascara.

LOOK 4: SWEETLY CLASSIC

For those of you who want to keep it sweet + classic on the Big Day, Jennie Kay suggests a low twisted ponytail that is equal parts show-stopping and wholesome. Pair it with subtle makeup (like a light pink lip) and a gown that has just a pop of sass and the results are absolutely timeless.

LOOK 5: TOUSLED SOPHISTICATION

Waves are a girl’s best friend and when it comes to a wedding day look that is equal parts laid-back and sophisticated, Jennie Kay keeps those tousled waves down with just a few sweet strands pulled back for a look that is all sorts of romantic. Add some soft pink lips and some barely-there makeup to complete the look.

Contact Jennie Kay Beauty to create a seamless, stunning look from head to toe… you won’t regret it.

Romantic Turks and Caicos Wedding

From Brilliant Studios… Brittany and Troy combined their individual styles to create their dream wedding at a stylish boutique hotel in the Turks and Caicos. While both the bride and groom have laid-back personalities, as Brittany put it: “I tend to gravitate more toward the Bohemian vibe, whereas Troy is more of a throwback to the midcentury modern days.”

The couple live in Pennsylvania, where they both work for the Philadelphia Phillies (which is also how they met). When they couldn’t agree on a location for their wedding in the States, they compromised with a destination wedding. They looked at locations all over the world before Brittany found a wedding on SMP that took place at the Gansevoort in the Turks and Caicos — a small chain of islands just southeast of the Bahamas. A year and a half later, they were saying “I do” in the same place.

It was extremely important for Brittany to have a hands-on approach to her wedding, so she brought all decorations, gifts and signage purchased from Etsy vendors for the ceremony and reception. All other elements were left to the couple’s wedding planner, Luise Bayley of NILA Destinations.

Details were key to this wedding — from the delicate florals, to the driftwood arch, to the personalized coconuts filled with rum. Brittany wanted the day to be an “airy, carefree affair” — and it turned out to be nothing less. Brittany and Troy exchanged their vows by the sea under their handcrafted arch, with a rainbow for a backdrop. They had an outdoor reception on a moonlit beach, ending the night with a bonfire in the sand and a s’mores bar.

“The memories of dancing barefoot with my new husband, friends and family under the stars on a Caribbean beach by a bonfire is a feeling we all will hold onto for life,” Brittany says.

But there WAS one thing missing: their 2-year-old Golden Retriever, Archie, who Troy and Brittany are rarely without. It was important to the couple that he somehow be a part of their wedding. Annie Lee from From Scratch TCI swooped in with the perfect solution: Cookie favors, with a particular Golden Retriever in mind. One cookie was shaped like Archie, and the other, a little pink heart.

“All of the vendors we worked with were true professionals, but in the end, almost felt more like friends we had made for life,” Brittany says. “This was a dream come true. Literally.”
