How To Match Your Wedding Hairstyle To Your Wedding Gown

16 Jul 2016 Posted by trubridal in Wedding Ideas

Finding the perfect Wedding Dress is only the first step in putting together your look for the big day. You’ll also need accessories, makeup—and to figure out what to do with your hair. And certain gowns will look best with certain hair styles, says Marlene Montanez of Latest-Hairstyles. Here are some of their ideas for pairing your wedding day hair with your dress.


Backless Dress. Backless Wedding Dresses are on trend right now, and whether it’s completely open in the back, partially so or just the illusion of an open back with lace detailing, you’ll likely want to show that part of the dress off. Consider an updo for your wedding day hairstyle to give your back the spotlight. If you aren’t feeling an updo, but still want something that’s flattering, you can also try a longer hairstyle where your hair is pulled and styled to the front and side. Think an ultra-glamorous low side pony.


Strapless/Sweetheart Dress. Strapless and sweetheart-neck dresses are still some of the most popular Wedding Dress styles. The good news is, they not only flatter just about every figure, they work with just about any hairstyle, too! If you are having a church ceremony or concerned about showing too much skin, consider wearing your hair down–even in a sleek, straight style or long, loose curls, instead of a formal updo.

The Ultra Glam Gown. A super dramatic dress with lots of embellishments needs a more sophisticated style. Whether you choose to embrace the glamour with a sleek updo or play the contrast game by going with a more loose, natural look, almost anything goes. But you’ll want to stay away from trendy dos like braids.


Boho or Beach Dresses. If you are having a beach wedding or a more casual affair, embrace the afternoon vibe with a non-fussy look. Long hair styled in beachy waves or even loose braids pulled back are perfect for beach weddings. And brides with long or short hair can experiment with some pretty bridal hair accessories, like flowers, headbands and even the new feather hair pieces.


The Understated Dress. If your dress is simple, sophisticated and elegant, you can play up the drama with your hair. For down hairstyles, that means lots of volume and for updos, that means pretty bridal hair accessories and glamorous styles that incorporate lots of curls.


One-Shoulder Gown. A one-shoulder gown is great for showing off fabulous arms and a little skin, so don’t want your hair covering that up. A half-up, half-down wedding hairstyle is a great way to balance off this asymmetrical look. If your wedding is a bit on the formal side, an updo works really well with this look, too.


The 10 Biggest Things All Brides Forget

16 Jul 2016 Posted by trubridal in Wedding Ideas

With all the wedding planning you’re doing right now, it’s hard to imagine there’s any detail you haven’t thought of – but trust us, there are certain to-dos that somehow never make it to the top of list. Here are 10 essentials to keep front of mind:

1) Making post-wedding plans

We’re not talking about the honeymoon here (who would forget to plan that?). We mean you need to decide what you’re doing immediately after your wedding. If you don’t want the party to end with the last dance, you should pick a late-night spot in or near one of the guest hotels. If privacy isn’t all that important, book your wedding night room in the same hotel as your guests. If you just want to get to bed, we strongly suggest you book a room elsewhere.

2) Bringing your overnight bag

If you’re allowed to check into your hotel room early — and you don’t personally need to be there to officially check in — pick someone to drop your overnight bag at your hotel before your ceremony starts. A guest who’s staying at the same place will more than likely be happy to do this for you, since they’re going to have to check in anyway! If your things can’t arrive sooner than you, ask a Bridesmaidto be responsible for bringing your bag to the wedding and finding a safe spot for it in the bridal suite. Even easier, if you’ll have the same car or limo for the entire day and night, opt to keep your stuff in the boot.

3) Picking someone to take your things home after the reception

Your gifts, mementos (think toasting flutes, cake topper, unity candle and guest book) and any leftover food, booze or cake need a trusty escort to get them home. Choose a person and let them know about their responsibility. And you may want to donate your centrepieces. Nursing homes typically accept flowers, but call at least a few days before the wedding to find out when someone can drop off the arrangements. If you’re changing out of your gown before you head to your hotel room, you’ll need a person to take it home, too— even if you have no plans to get it professionally preserved, you don’t want to leave it behind! Make sure there’s a hanger and a garment bag on hand (the one your dress came with will do!) so your gown stays in tip-top shape.

4) Deciding where everything goes

Besides planning where all of your guests sit, you need to figure out where you’ll put programs, escort and place cards, menus (if you’re having them) and bomboniere. Once you’ve decided who’s going to set these out — your wedding coordinator, Bridesmaids and banquet managers are all good choices — give them clear instructions on where they should go (one bomboniere on every other plate at tables, for instance, if you want couples to share the takeaways, or all of them in two baskets by the exits if you want guests to pick them up on the way out). Also, if your venue’s staff will be setting out these items, find out when you can drop everything off — some venues want everything a couple of days before your wedding; others won’t take anything until the actual day.

5) Decorating the other areas

Of course, no guest will walk out of your wedding if the bathrooms and cocktail bar are left bare. But with all the energy that’s put into dressing up the reception and ceremony spaces, you might want to put in the small extra effort to give these spots the décor they deserve. A few candles will work.

6) Buying gifts for the wedding party

When gifts are constantly coming to your door, it’s hard to remember that you also need to dole some out! So who makes it on the gift list? Everyone who plays a role in your day — yes, your parents and future in-laws, too. You don’t need to make a big presentation.

7) Choosing how to gather the gifts

If you’re not having a wishing well, there are three times when guests are likely to thrust gifts at you: while they’re in the receiving line, during your table visits and when they leave for the night. Designate a person — one of your Bridesmaids, your mum or your groom’s mum — to collect envelopes, and have them by your side with a large but inconspicuous bag when you’re saying hello and goodbye to your guests. That person should also keep an eye out for guests who seem a little lost at the reception — they may be trying to figure out where they should put their gift! If you decide instead to have a wishing well, box or other stationary receptacle, add a cute sign and tell a few people to subtly spread the word around.

8) Figuring out your day-after plans

If you’re leaving for your honeymoon straight from your hotel, make advance arrangements for a car service to take you from the hotel to the airport, and be sure you bring any luggage you want with you on your trip (and a passport if you need it). If you’re not going on your honeymoon right away, then you need to know where you’re going the morning after your wedding (home, or your parents’ house?) and how you’re going to get there. Park your car at the hotel before your wedding if you’re allowed, or ask a friend to come pick you up and bring you where you want to go the next day. Don’t schedule your ride too early — you’ll probably be exhausted.

9) Bringing the legal documents

Signing your marriage certificate after the wedding ceremony is one of the most important aspects of your day; after all, it officialises the reason you threw a wedding in the first place! After all the hours of planning, you’re probably more focused on the party afterwards than the legal side of your nuptials, but without the paperwork, all the stress and money spent will be for nothing. Your celebrant should hopefully keep you on top of all the legal requirements, such as lodging your Notice of Intended Marriage at least one month prior to your wedding day, and bringing along three marriage certificates for you to sign on the day. Also, there is a ‘Declaration of No Legal Impediment to Marriage’ which you will need to sign close to, and prior to the marriage taking place. Check with them a few days before the wedding so you can have peace of mind.

10) Making and confirming itineraries

Check in with every single supplier, from the limo driver to the linen rental company, one week before your wedding. Many of them will beat you to it, so be ready to go over times and locations whenever you get a call. Send out agendas to your Bridesmaids and groomsmen, too — how else will they know what time you’re taking photos? If someone in the bridal party is notorious for being late, start their schedule half an hour early just in case.

10 Things Brides Forget To Do After Their Wedding Ceremony

15 Jul 2016 Posted by trubridal in Wedding Ideas

Use the Bathroom

Use the bathroom. You’re going to be taking photos, greeting guests and preparing for your first dance as husband and wife, so it might be hard to find a lot of time to visit the restroom during the reception. Before you get back in that limo, be sure to take a bathroom break–and don’t forget to take a few Bridesmaids with you to help maneuver the dress while you pee.

Retouch Makeup

Retouch your makeup. You kissed your groom and maybe even shed a tear or two swapping your vows, so you’re definitely in need of a little retouching before moving on. Bring along a small purse that you can keep in the car (or have a friend or family member hold on it) that has everything you need–oil blotting papers, concealer, lip gloss, etc.–to make sure you look picture perfect all day.

Alone Time

Spend alone time with groom. You’re finally husband and wife, and there’s nothing rude about sneaking away for a few minutes for some alone time. It will give him time to gush over how gorgeous you look and for the both of you to reflect on the ceremony. In fact, in Jewish tradition, couples spend alone time in another room to signify their new status as husband and wife.


Eat Something

Eat something! One big bridal complaint: Many don’t get to sample the delicious food at their own wedding! You spent so much time agonizing over the menu, you deserve to enjoy it along with your guests. And since you’ll likely be drinking during the party, it’s best to do so on a full stomach anyway.

Comfortable Shoes

Slip into comfortable shoes. If you plan to take outdoor photos, you don’t want your heels sinking into the grass. Or at the very least, you’ll want to be able to dance during the reception. (Despite what Carrie Bradshaw might say, your feet will hurt once you spend a few hours in heels). Be sure to bring a pair of flats so you never have to go barefoot during the event (unless you’re getting hitched on the beach!).

Take Off Your Veil

Take off your veil. If you don’t want to wear it all night or for the first dance, it’s probably easiest to take it off right after the ceremony since you’ll have to be super careful not to ruin your ‘do during the process. This is a task you maid of honor or mom can help you with.

Engagement ring

Put your engagement ring back on.During the ceremony, you’ll want to leave your ring finger on your left hand free so your groom can slip on your wedding band. You can simply move your engagement ring to your right hand or have someone hold it for you until after your vows, when you can slip it back on for the reception. Remember: The band is usually worn closest to your heart on your left hand.


Check Out Your Ceremony Space

Check out your ceremony space. Another thing a bride forgets is to really see the ceremony space, says Mystique Latese, founder of Coordinator for a Day. “Often she is brought into the church or the ceremony location as part of a covert operation in order to keep her out of sight. The only moment she experiences the space is when she walks down the aisle.” Take the time to see the flowers and the décor, see the altar where you stood and the space


Thank Wedding Party

Thank your parents and bridal party. It’s a great time to also have a private moment where you express you gratitude for all they have done for you and your groom on this special day. It’s also an opportunity for these close friends and family members to have the bride and groom all to themselves for a final moment before they have to share you with the rest of the guests. “The next phase of the wedding day is a flurry of food and fun and after the ceremony is a perfect time for private moments such as these,” says Latese.

Collect Sentimental Items

Collect ceremony items. Don’t leave behind anything of value–sentimental or otherwise–at the ceremony space. Extra programs, the unity candle, the Ketubah, or family photos that might have been on the altar are things that can easily be forgotten during the excitement that occurs after your vows. Assign a friend or family member to gather everything and hold onto it for you until you get back from the honeymoon.

37 Blush Bridesmaid Dresses

11 Jul 2016 Posted by trubridal in Bridesmaids Dresses

There’s a reason this light-pink hue is a bridal style favorite.

It’s no wonder blush is such a popular wedding color: It’s romantic and demure. Plus, it’s perfect for spring and summer nuptials. Light pink also happens to flatter nearly every skin tone, making it the perfect shade for Bridesmaid dresses.

It not only works for a variety of shapes and shades, but it also can act as a neutral. In other words: You’ll have no problem fitting a blush bridal party into your color scheme or theme. And this is one hue that looks good on all fabrics and silhouettes.

Since it’s so widely popular, it’s easy to find the color across a variety of retailers and designers. Which means for you and your ‘maids, splurging isn’t a necessity. Even better, if you’re willing, you can let your girls pick a silhouette that suits their body type and style, without fear that the shade they choose will be off. After all, most light pink dresses go together beautifully, whether or not they fall in the exact same spot of the rosy spectrum.

You can even fit a blush Bridesmaid dress into most seasons. While it’s more popular for spring and summer weddings, you can have your girls wear it in any time of year, with slate grey and gilded accents grounding it in the cooler months.

31 Wedding Hairstyles for Short to Mid Length Hair

09 Jul 2016 Posted by trubridal in Wedding News

The only thing more important than the dress on a girl’s big day is her hair and when it comes to wedding hairstyles for short to mid length hair, it can be hard to get inspiration for something as equally beautiful as the rest of your big day should be. If you don’t want to rely on hair extensions and would much prefer to rock your wedding hair naturally, here’s everything you need to know.


The humble headband is an instant way to offer something new to any look and when you have short hair, you have the opportunity to rock something slightly more overstated than those with longer hair and an elegant or intricate updo.
Wedding Pixie Hairstyle with Headband

The simple addition of this classic and elegant headband has worked perfectly with those curled tendrils peeking through this messy pixie hairstyle. A definite winner if you ask us.


The messy chignon is a very easy look to rock, especially if you have medium length hair. It’s a matter of rolling the hair over and securing in place, letting a few tendrils to hang down and add a curly, romantic tone to the whole look.

Rolled Chignon Wedding Updo for Short Hair

A hair accessory has once again been used here but this time, a simple brooch-style hairpiece. In fact, you could even use an old brooch or family heirloom in your hair to keep the spirit of tradition alive. Something old and borrowed…


Vintage weddings are all the rage these days and this vintage wedding look is simply breathtaking – one that we’re definitely adding to our list.

Vintage Wedding Hairstyle for Short Hair

Pin curls take a bit of practice before you get them right but are one of the most elegant style of curls, structured rather than messy and all over the place. Just because you don’t have long hair doesn’t mean you can’t still rock some beautiful curls.


For those weddings when natural hair is key, a few large-barreled curls are the perfect way to rock it, especially with the beautiful flower addition that you can see here.

Simple Shoulder Length Hairstyle with Flowers

If beachy wedding is your theme, flowers in the hair are a must, and this look shows you how to rock those floral delights without your wedding verging into the area of tacky.


A very fifties / sixties vibe, the beehive is a great look for a classic wedding, and with some tousling and backcombing is actually a very easy way of adding to bulk to quite short hair.

Wedding Updo for Short Hair

The braid you can see used as a headband can be faked with a hair piece, and that simple chignon is both stylish and beautiful. We love everything about this look.


Bringing back the headband today, we love this lace addition to her hair, especially when you haven’t gone with a traditional veil.

Wedding Bob Hairstyle with Headband and Braid

The braid is a simple addition but one that adds a little something extra to the hairstyle. It also helps to cover up a large forehead if that’s what you’re worried about. You don’t just have the option of bangs as you can see here.


We’ve gone back to easy and breezy wedding hair here and this look screams bohemian, a super simple and romantic way to wear your hair with, once again, the simple addition of some floral beauties.

Romantic Braid Wedding Hairstyle for Shoulder Length Hair

This time, a sprig of something pretty, perfect for when a big flower in your hair just won’t do, and you were hoping for something a little more back-to-nature.


A wedding wouldn’t be complete without rhinestones and we love this simple updo with sparkly rhinestones.

Elegant Wedding Bun Updo for Short Hair

Instagram / riawnacapri

The hair is left simple, straight and with a few tendrils left to frame the face, with the entire bun covered over by what could be a hair piece / accessory, but also could be an old brooch or family heirloom once again.


For when you don’t have hair length to make a feature out of your hair on your big day, use flowers once again but with this bride, a floral halo or crown more than a simple addition poked into your loose locks.

Short Wedding Hairstyle with Flower Crown


This look is very pretty, but if you’re having an outdoor wedding, just be mindful of wasps and bees!


Just because you don’t have long hair doesn’t mean you can’t still wear it up. This simple half up hairstyle for mid length hair is pretty, easy and doesn’t take too long to do.

Simple Half Up Wedding Hairstyle for Brides with Short Hair

It has been beautifully adorned with what looks to be baby’s breath – a flower that not only looks beautiful but smells delightful also.



If you want more of a rocky and edgy look for your big day, what about this one – a braided pixie hairstyle that not only rocks a super cool cut, but also a super cool color – that silvery / gray tone is to die for and we are lusting after it too much right now.

No flowers, no gimmicks, just simple hair with a simple braid – what’s not to love about this?


Another headband to complete those big day vibes, finger waves are curls or waves that actually originated from the 20’s and 30’s, perfect for those looking for a Great Gatsby themed wedding event. Or even just a traditional, vintage one.

You don’t use any curling tools for this look – no straighteners, no curling irons, no curling wands, barrel tongs, anything. Just a lot of wet look gel, a comb and your fingers, using the tools you have to tease and set the waves with an S-shaped formation.


Another wedding hair look, another hair accessory – this one continues to follow that vintage theme but this one has more of a 60’s or 70’s flare to it, another hair brooch or grip to nestle nicely in those cute and short curls.

We love that the curls look very natural in this look, all a little different and sitting a little differently from each other. A side-parting completes the look of course, and you could even use another hair accessory to keep your bangs out of your face.


If you’re more of a bold bride, what about this look – an edgy color, an edgy style, and even better than that, a super-slim edgy braid to add a little something extra to the look.

You wouldn’t normally associate this look with volume for a wedding day but we think it works pretty well. Not everyone wants to have beautiful and cute flowers and accessories in their hair.


Sliding back into the more traditional and we come to this stunning messy updo, a look that (in our experience) takes a lot of practice to make something so messy!

Messy Wedding Updo for Short Hair


Using a simple ponytail and some bobby pins to secure in place, tendrils have been swooped up and pinned in with loose tendrils framing the face and curled for added measure. This hair goes perfectly with those chandelier-style earrings. Every wedding needs a little bit of vintage glam-bling.


If you have a bob, wedding hair can be hard to find inspiration for, especially when you have a short bob like this neck-nape skimming style.

A few simple braids and some bobby pins is all it takes to recreate this beautiful look, one that is both messy and elegant all at the same time, and finished off with a simple set of pearl earrings, is very classy.


If you have a slightly longer pixie look, why not rock the headband again but this time, an all-round headband as you have the option of showing it off the entire way around.

Another clever idea to bring back the traditional effect – something borrowed could be a pearl necklace similar to this one that you could wear around your head as a hair accessory rather than an actual necklace. Great idea, huh?


Curls work really well on short hair that’s been growing out for a while, and as long as you don’t go for a tight spiral perm, you won’t lose too much length with the bouncing waves either.

Some of the soft curls have subtly pinned back in this look, just by pulling random strands back and securing them in place with blonde-colored bobby pins but you could just leave it loose if you wanted to. We think it would look just as cute.


This look is so very lovely and, we think, almost a little latino too! There’s something very sassy about this look and we think it has something to do with that thrown-over curl / wave at the front. What Jessica Rabbit probably would have looked like if she’d had short hair, you know?

We can’t help but think this sassy look would go hand in hand with a Wedding Dress that shows off the shoulders, perhaps something bodice or corset-inspired with nothing around the arms. What do you think?


What about the brides that don’t want flowers or accessories and would prefer to keep things slightly more au naturel? Well, then you verge into using your own locks as a hair accessory just like this braided headband.

Starting from one side, taking a piece that’s a little below your ear (if your hair is long enough), start braiding and as you go, take it over the top of the head, adding more to the braid but leaving it loose as you go. Pin the end on the other side of the head to where you started and pull out / tease loose tendrils to give you a wavy and romantic look and you’re good to go.
