I was approached by Lover.ly to participate in this challenge and I thought it was a fabulous idea! I’m certain that all young girls have pictured the day that they would get married and I, for one, occasionally do think about what my actual dream wedding day would be like! I know I hear all the time that planning the day is incredibly stressful but everyone says that it’s the most special day of our lives so I say it is most worth it!
A part of the challenge was to pick out which of the following venues your dream wedding would be located: an elegant estate, secret garden or rustic winery! I wanted my wedding to be at a traditional church when I was younger but as I’ve grown up now, I now think that a secret garden would be so romantic and beautiful. There’s just something so ethereal and serene about being surrounded by nature!
Going onto the wedding dress shop on the website is so overwhelming, but I mean that in a good way of course! Wedding dresses in general are just so breathtakingly beautiful and after browsing through the pages and seeing the hundreds of stunning styles, it became increasingly difficult to pinpoint what my perfect wedding dress would be. However, I was immediately drawn to the designs by Maggie Sottero! Her dresses all have a feminine and classic feel to them, very much like my personal style. I have always envisioned my wedding dress to have lace detailing and a long trail. I want to look and feel like a princess on the special day! =) I guess I won’t know what my perfect dress would be until I’m preparing for my actual wedding and I’m going around different stores trying to find the perfect one! But there are definitely two particular styles that catch my eye every time:
♡ Form fitting lace dress with a low back, long trail and a bow at the back
♡ Bigger, princess-like dress with lace detailing
① Lucinda Dress
② Lauralee Dress
I definitely think that for the particular venue, I would want something more softer material wise. I definitely also think that these dresses are more classic rather than trendy because I don’t ever want to look back one day at my wedding photos and regret my choice! =P
I remember being so obsessed with the planning of Chriselle Lim’s wedding and I completely fell in love with the shoes she wore on her special day. I absolutely adore the embellishments on the front T-straps and I feel that they are the most perfect shoes. They would be such a splurge but I know that I would be able to get good use out of them after the wedding too, especially for other more special and glam night occasions. =)
I would choose a veil similar to that shown in my first dress choice. However, if I was wearing the second dress, I would probably opt for something a little more toned down and go for a jewelled head piece such as the one I showed. I think it suits the venue perfectly!
Of course I can’t complete my post without including what sort of makeup and hair I would choose for the special day! For makeup, I would most definitely go for a more natural glam makeup look that is classic. I wouldn’t dare to play around with any trendy looks just because, as I said before, I don’t want to look back and wonder what I was thinking!
I’m not someone who really likes their hair all the way up so I would love to have my hair curled in a half-up half-down sort of style. I really adore softer and natural looking curls so I would want my hair to be curled like the picture above and pinned back (minus the hairpiece).
That completes my dream wedding day! I really enjoyed this challenge, it was so much fun to put together. I can’t wait to look back to this post when I’m actually planning on getting married and see how my tastes will (or won’t) change!
