AISLE STYLE: Engagement Party

When I think about all of the weddings I have seen through my own eyes or what has inspired me in magazines or stories, one thing comes to mind: true love. There is nothing more romantic about two souls coming together as one and promising to be there for one another for the rest of their lives. I am a true romantic at heart and always look for romance in all parts of any wedding. 
As I continue to plan my own with less than two months to go, I wanted to incorporate romance into all of my wedding decisions. I can’t help but get lost in the details of a venue, invitations, flowers and the overall look of the bride and groom.

With a big celebration on the way, I wanted to share a few tips about how I have been styling my looks and hope it inspires you. As a bride, you have so many events to shop for and sometimes it can be overwhelming and not know where to start. I have handpicked a few of my favorites, from classic to fashionable pieces, and have a handful of tips below to help you prepare for the BIG day and the entire JOURNEY.
When it comes to dresses, I am a firm believer that it should be personalized to your personality and characteristics. There are a few details in clothing, especially for brides, that scream romance and love. Ruffles, lace, and details, such as bows, are all feminine touches that reflect a very flirty yet romantic feel. Depending on the type of wedding you are having, you can break the celebrations down and wear a different type of outfit every time. For example, when it came to my bridal party announcement, I wanted more of a statement and opted to wear a jumpsuit for a fashionable moment. For my engagement party, I I wanted a dress that was flirty yet romantic, which is why I chose to style this David’s Bridal dress. The options are endless and my best advice is to focus on pieces that define you, your relationship and your style. I had handpicked a few of my favorite pieces below that can be styled from your engagement party to rehearsal dinner and more.

Think about your outfit as a full look. It always starts with the dress but is completed with the details, such as your accessories, hair, and makeup. When I find the perfect outfit, I always start to envision how I am going to style my hair and makeup in a way that makes a statement. It sets the entire mood and story of the event! If you’re anything like me, I always opt for classic Hollywood-glam curls, but lately I have loved experimenting with different looks much more. A simple, low updo is always classic and to add some details, you can always add hair accessories. Some accessories that I love are hair clips, bows and pearls for an added touch of romance.

Last but not least, the shoes! Shoes can’t be forgotten because they are equally as important as the outfit, hair, and makeup. Whether your dress is short or long, you want to feel confident walking in a pair of shoes that make you feel your absolute best. I always strive for balance when it comes to creating outfits. If my entire dress is lace with intricate details, I keep the shoes simple with a strappy heel. If the outfit is more classic and needs a bit more romance, have fun with the shoes and opt in for a style you wouldn’t generally try, like all over crystals or a touch of color.
