My wedding look

This morning, I rode my trusty bike to Cutler and Make Up Forever for my wedding hair and makeup trials. I was a little nervous, but I ended up having such a great time and was totally thrilled with how it turned out (especially the sweet little braid). Now I want to get married immediately.

More photos on Glamour.com...I really hope you like it :) xoxo

What a fantastic look - romantic and special but still you. So many wedding make-up/hairdo combinations end up looking overdone and fake, so the person doesn't look like them anymore.

Gloria said...

That up-do is perfect for the style dress your wearing........the neck of the dress is georgous and you want to keep it that way by not over doing with a veil...excellent choice. Make sure the hair stylist does your hair a big tighter than than the hair style calls for because it will fall a bit on it's own and you don't want it too look messy for your pictures and You don't want it to fall out when your dancing.

beautifuliving said...

Joe - I wanted to pop in and say a quick hello. It was lovely chatting with you and Alex at the Sunday Supper but gee, I feel down right silly. I hadn't realized you were engaged. Though it is probably for the best, I can talk weddings 366 days a year. I love 'em. I love talking about them. I go on and on about 'em. I never would have shut up.

Well, congratulations to you two! You make a wonderful pair. I'm sure your day will be stunning and I wish you all the best. Your hair looks perfect, as does the make-up.
