Fashion Elements

Amanda's gorgeous wedding dress is modern and classic with an angular sweetheart neckline and tulle statement train. The dress is accompanied by a self-belt adorned with sparkly details.

Lauren will source the following items to complete the look:

  • Veil - it wouldn't hurt to purchase this veil for your trial. You can try it on to get an idea for the overall look and return it if you change your mind. Also, please find an example of a modern birdcage veil here.
  • Shoes
  • Earrings
  • Bracelet
  • Shawl / cover up
  • Clutch

Hair + Makeup

Hair and makeup will be done by Amie Decker Beauty. Whether you decide on up or down, it never hurts to have a little extra hair ;) Hair extensions will add volume and help hold the curl. Bellami is a great, affordable option. I would suggest the color the blonde or platinum blonde. Every pack comes with a tester so you can make sure the color is a good match before you open the entire pack and can't return in.

Hair up 

If you choose to wear your hair up, I would suggest a clean, sleek updo. Not too much "whispy" hair left out. Either parted on the side, or pulled back with lots of volume.

Hair Down

If you choose to wear your hair down, I would suggest a deep side part with clean, loose curls.

Half Up Half Down

Makeup

Makeup should be soft and highlight your natural beauty. Stick with a pink / peach color palette.
