Modern motifs meet vintage flair at this lavender wedding
Love the trendiness of mixed metals but know your an old soul? Look no further than this dreamy lavender wedding theme! Pulling inspiration from the historic gadgets and machinery that drive steampunk fashion, the elegant scene contains copper and gold table decor as well as a vintage camera. Leading the colour palette are creamy hues of lavender and yellow in the floral, vintage chair, appliquéd tablecloth, sparkly Jimmy Choo shoes and even stationery suite. Between the baroque dining chairs and the four-tier paper crepe cake, we can’t decide which detail is our favorite!

Listen up, fall 2018 brides! Bridal Fashion Week has come and gone, and we’ve pored over every wedding dress to make your search for the One as easy as possible. Want to know the latest wedding-dress trends before you kick off a season of wedding-dress shopping? We’re here for you always. While last season’s wedding-dress trends aren’t going anywhere (off-the-shoulder, blue, lace!), this season saw a new take on some of our favorites. Capes are still going strong, but this season they’ve been upgraded from capelet to full-on princess cape. Off-the-shoulder dresses are still everywhere and ultra flattering, but designers put a new spin on sleeves for them. And ladylike mid-length dresses have us all seeing visions of Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face.
From princess-inspired capes to cool moto jackets, detachable sleeves, tea-length ladylike frocks, and even shorts, these are the wedding-dress trends we’re loving for 2018.
Brides, having long hair can be a blessing and a curse. While we love those hair-in-the-wind moments, it can sometimes be a real pain combing and tugging through long strands. It’s easy to run your tresses through a flat iron or blower on a day-to-day basis, but when you’re getting ready to walk down the aisle, plenty of factors come into play when deciding on your wedding day ‘do. Will my hair hold the style? Will I inadvertently cover my gown’s lace neckline? These are some of the many questions that will may worry you, but the answer is quiet simple: opt for an updo!
Whether a sleek ponytail or low maintenance bun, a wedding updo will prevent your luxurious strands from flying all over the place, and keep the attention on your wedding dress. Even better, you can add nearly any hair accessory to create a look that’s all your own. Keep scrolling for 17 wedding updos we’re loving right now.
An open back dress and low bun are a match made in bridal heaven.
After your updo is secured, loosen a few strands from the front to frame your face.
Long fine hair can be twisted up under to create a 40’s Bob style which looks timeless and glamours.
Your hair pins can totally double as accessories, like this bride’s gold leaf pins.
Show off you gown’s detailed neckline by opting for a high or low updo. This bride’s low maintenance waves is the perfect contrast to her otherwise chic look.

You realize you haven’t chosen your hair and make-up so you call alistbeauty and inquire about time date and colours. Every bride is different we will tell you. No one look is right for every bride.

1: Neutrals on Neutrals; Trendy colors come and go, but mix-and-match neutrals are always on point. This is one of alistbeauty’s favourites. Why? Well, because it is always on point. Neutrals always enhance your natural beauty, they work with every colours and always look fresh, natural and poised. Blond, Brunette, or Redhead, neutral work for everyone.
2: Blush Pink Palette; According to Pantone, “rose quartz” pink is the trend that’s here to stay in the 2017 season. This soft, subtle shade is one that’ll look great no matter the year. It always has a relaxed elegance, that innocent blush that all brides have naturally is softly enhanced with palette.

4: Nature’s Bride; Moments of greenery are a beautiful way to bring the outdoors in, with a touch of greenery it is a trend that’ll always look lush and rich. a layered bouquet reflects your personality, rich in layers of beautiful blooms and glorious greenery will always be a perfect choice. Peonies are everyone’s favorite wedding flower, these blooming beauties undoubtedly stand out against all the rest and are always perfect with their multi layered bloom and sweet soft fragrance. This look would be lost with a troup of bridesmaids all the same, so it is mix-and-match Bridesmaids Dresses for this wedding. Gone are the days when one dress for all is the standard. We think you (and your girls!) will love being able to chose their own look. After all nobody tells mother nature what to do. Your look will undoubtedly have natures colours, reds, greens, blues, purples, lilac, lavender. Blended eyes in soft colours, rich lips, and strong cheek bones bring this look to life.
5: Elegant Draping; Is there anything more lovely than layers of drapery? It makes every venue a romantic and elegant event. Drapery has been around for centuries and never seems to get tired or passe. Soft ivories, ecru, or smoky grey, draped fabric just says opulence.
