Thousands of weddings happen each day around the world. A lot of them will follow the exact same routine, from start to finish. But there’s a few people out there that like to switch things up a little and go for different wedding styles when it comes to the dress sense and beauty. Depending on what you like, you’ll probably already have an image in your head of what you’d like yourself to look like on your big day. But as the months of planning go on, this can all change. Especially as you start seeing different ideas from either dress shops, or the dreaded Instagram accounts. Instagram is the worst for seeing other people’s wedding, or wedding styles and wishing your could be the same once you’ve already bought the dress and made the arrangements. But it is great for inspiring you in the beginning. Some styles are truly incredible on Instagram. So, without further ado, here’s some wedding styles you should consider if you’re tying the knot next year.


The reserved look is one that seems to be quiet popular in the wedding world. Even though there’s no real statement going on, the look seems to still have a massive impact. Sometimes the simpler things in life are the best, this goes to show with this style. So, if you want to go reserved, you’re going to have to keep things plain and simple and covered up. A lot of wedding dresses are absolutely beautiful at the minute, but do show a lot of cleavage and have see through sleeves etc. some leaving nothing to the imagination. A lovely reserved look at the minute is the silk styled wedding dress, full length sleeve with the tradition veil. Keep the dress tight fitted all the way down. It’ll still keep the dress in that lovely reserved style, but will add a bit of character to the dress. If it was a puffed out one it’d sort of be too similar to the traditional look. Jewelry wise, simple silver or gold will do. A small necklace, perhaps a bracelet and some statement earrings will really compliment this dress well. As for makeup, you want to try and achieve that simple dewy look that’s perfect for a wedding. Keep caking minimal, and apply a little bit of eyeshadow. If you’re having it done professionally, just mention you’d like it reserved and they should be able to complete a lovely look for you. A simple up do with the hair, or down and curled will be perfect, nothing too out there.
