Beautiful Wedding Hairstyles for Short Hair
Whether you dress up your tresses or wear your hair au naturel, short hair can look every inch as glamorous as long locks on your wedding day. Add an accessory for a special occasion feel, or let your pixie cut do the talking with pared back make-up. Brides opting for a traditional take could consider a vintage style birdcage veil, while a strategically placed clip elevates every-day hair to big day beautiful in no time. Brides-to-be with short hair needn’t shy away from the braid trend either – plait your fringe or go for a wrapped braid to channel your inner-Heidi. “I always advise brides with short hair to keep their hair short for their weddings; why go longer for the most important day of your life when you prefer it short every other day?” comments Mark Coates, National Education Manager for Bumble and bumble UK.
The best tulle and organza wedding dresses
Nothing says “femininity” quite like a beautiful wedding dress crafted from organza and tulle. Whether you opt for a skirt full of ruffles, or a subtle gradation of layers, these dresses exude elegance and give off an undeniable princess vibe. Tulle needn’t be all about the drama, though – it can be slinky too, when used for sheer panels, or can be incorporated into dresses through mermaid or fishtail style gowns. Opting for just a tiny bit of tulle makes for a romantic statement, while the material can even be paired with lace panels for a modern take on one of the wedding industry’s most iconic fabrics. Your wedding day may be one of the only occasions you can embrace this most flamboyant of fabrics, so add as much or as little as you like for the dress of your dreams.

The best wedding trainers for brides
A few years ago, pairing a princess wedding dress with anything other than high, fashionable heels was a big no no. These days though, it’s becoming trendier, and totally acceptable, to go down the casual route and wear trainers instead. Brides who would normally ditch the heels for flats for the party ditch that step altogether, and why not? Is there anything wrong with being comfortable on your wedding day? And where you might think boring white sneakers are the only option, think again. Brides are getting more and more creative with blue embellished shoes (their something blue), Converse personalised with their wedding date, and even lace designs for those traditional at heart. Plus, you can’t knock the fact you will be more likely to wear them again. So, if you’re ready to embrace this wedding trend and sprint down the aisle, here is our pick of the best bridal trainers…
