Now count up you’re A’s, B’s, C’s and D’s!
If you picked mostly A’s, you are: The Innocent Bride
You prefer a more angelic look and love sprucing up your look with flowers, pastels, and more earthy accessories. When getting married, you will feel most comfortable choosing a gown that is more traditional. Traditional gowns are fitted on top and come out wide at the waist, in a princess-like manner. Top the look off with soft curls and accessories like white flowers, which can be real or an accessory of your choice decorated with crystals. However, as with any unique bridal styles this look is certainly not for every bride. Her innocent look is not something that can be recreated with the right makeup or the right dress; she will look this way no matter what she wears. Just because the dress is fluffy and white does not mean that everyone will look adorable in it. So, flatter your fabulous self and accentuate your assets.
If you picked mostly B’s, you are: The Sensual Bride
The sensual bride is bold and exciting; she takes risks and lives for passion. Physically, the sensual bride tends to have strong features and looks dignified and elegant with red lipstick rather than a made-up doll. Wearing white on your wedding day symbolizes virginity and purity but let’s face it, we don’t all have angelic faces nor care to look innocent, even on our wedding day. For this time of bride, a fitted gown accentuating the hips and waist, some red lipstick, an elegant hair twist and an attitude that says “I can rock this look” are the way to go. We have all seen women who are desperately trying to carry out the sensual style with an innocent bride look! It just looks unnatural. Therefore, if you have strong features, have a curvy body and look great in a mermaid fitted gown, this look is definitely for you! Keep in mind that dressing a little sexy on your wedding is okay, but it will be best to still make sure it is done in good taste.
If you picked mostly C’s, you are: The Casual Bride
You’re a nature-lover, enjoy playing with the young ones, roughing it with the boys and you don’t mind getting dirty. Comfort is what you look for in clothes, and your wedding gown should be no exception.. The gowns that you will find surprisingly comfortable and casual, while still elegant for your wedding are different variations of the Grecian-inspired dresses. These gowns are flowing and comfortable yet elegant and sultry. They are fitted at the bust and flow to the ground. To top off the look,, try accentuating the hair with soft waves or with braids on the sides of the head. This look is great for a bride who has always dreamed of a beach wedding or a casual destination wedding.
If you picked mostly D’s, you are: The Trendy Bride
You’re the girl setting the trends not following them. You have always been considered a trendsetter, and therefore your wedding day should be no exception. For the Trendy Bride, gone is the day when putting together a bridal look was all about tradition. You’re the girl most likely to revolutionize the bridal look once and for all! A note to all brides, this look is very difficult to pull off unless you are the Carry Bradshaw of your circle, I mean, who else can pull off a bird in their hair on their wedding day? Dare to add color to your gown, accessorize with interesting hats and hair-pieces, add a statement necklace, or even opt for a short gown. The sky is the limit for the Trendy bride, but stay true to your body type and skin complexion. You’ve always known how to pull off any look, so make sure you’re working with what you know and not totally stepping out of your best looks.
Remember, no matter what category you fall under, it’s all about confidence. A bride needs to “own” her look and feel comfortable carrying out a style. Choosing the look that will fit your personality will bring out your inner happiness, confidence and ultimately result in an amazing wedding day experience for the fabulous and stylish you!
