Styling Your Wedding...Wedding Dresses, Hairstyles and More

Posted by Sherry Whitehurst on August 25, 2011


Planning a wedding is hard enough for a bride without the added stress of working out the styling details.  So much goes into styling a bride that it can feel overwhelming before you have even begun.  

Here are some ideas about the ways you can "Style" your wedding.

Wedding Dresses

I have written several recent articles on topics related to wedding dresses and here are links to some of those articles:

Wedding Makeup

This wedding planning site also has a section dedicated to bridal makeup.  It is likely that you will have your makeup professionally done for your wedding day, but you can get ideas for the look you'd like the most for your wedding day from the galleries provided here.


Wedding Fashion has a section devoted entirely to different types of wedding fashions for guests and party members.  This includes the bridesmaids, whose garments should accentuate the beauty of the bride's wedding gown, and the mother-of-the-bride dress.  Also featured are general wedding wear options.


Wedding Rings

The only part of a bride's outfit that could take focus off of the wedding dress is the wedding ring! showcases a lot of wedding ring types and styles, in varying price ranges to accommodate different needs.  There are also resources available for resizing, if a whole new ring is not necessary.

In addition to style resources, has numerous additional features, including registry services, to-do lists, guest lists, vendor resources, venue resources, and more.  Check it out to make wedding planning a breeze!
