Bridal Beauty, Wedding Style: What's Trending Now!

Special to OneWed by Karin Crimmins, owner of Red Carpet Studios

Hello ladies! The 2011 wedding season is in full swing! So let’s talk about what’s trending now in the world of wedding style and beauty! One of the top trends I've noticed on my latest wedding adventures? Having not one, but two wedding dresses. Why the hell not I say!! Embrace your inner princess for the wedding ceremony and live out your fairy tale fantasy by looking totally radiant and beautiful in a bridal gown that makes a stunning statement. Ball gown and mermaid silhouettes are especially dramatic. Once it's time for the reception, WOW everyone in a chic little white dress!! Let your hair down and bring the hemline up, up, up! Grandma might not like it but your hubby-to-be will! Need some designer suggestions? My picks are below, but let us know who your favs are! • Princess for the Ceremony: Romona Keveza, Pronovias, Vera Wang. • Diva for the Reception: Lela Rose, Monique Lhuillier & Badgley Mischka. Next let’s tackle weather & hair. Weather is totally out of our control and can be so unpredictable! Here are some ideas for wedding hairstyles that will keep you looking your bridal best... no matter what the weatherman says the forecast will be: • Humid, hot, hazy, foggy, windy, and rainy: A simple pulled back wedding hair style will hold best. Try either a high ponytail with some height at the crown or a smart chic chignon. Keep your hairstyle in place using a strong hold glossing gel and super strength finishing spray. I like Redken or Kenra products. • Breezy, Sunny, Cloudy, and Overcast: You can opt for a few hair styles here. Long, loose curls will work well, just make sure a taming lotion is used. The use of a curling iron and a thermal spray will keep curls and waves looking bouncy and fresh. Half up hairstyles will also work well. Curl your tresses and pin some pieces up to give a tousled, textured look to your wedding hairstyle. Sleek & straight will work best when special care is given in the blow dry stage. Here, a volumizing product is key and should be applied from roots to ends. Next, straighten small sections of hair with a flat iron and finish with a glossing spray and firm hold hair spray. Whether you're a DIY bride or hire a professional to do your wedding 'do, these tips and trends will keep you spot on for wedded bliss!! Congrats to all of you soon to be brides!
