Inside our August/September 2015 issue you'll find our "How It Girls Do Bridal" series, where our favorite fashion girls share their been-there-rocked-that advice for looking (and feeling) beautiful on your wedding day. But we're giving you an exclusive sneak peek by spotlighting one of the very stylish ladies every week! Here, Luella & June blogger Bradley Agather Means is dishing her best big-day tips. Steal her bridal style secrets to nail your more important outfit yet.
Opt for timeless over trendy.
"Don't get caught up in the wedding dress trend of the moment. You don't want to be looking back through photos and be able to date the wedding based on the dress. Instead, focus on your own personal style and what works best for your body. The best dresses are the ones that incorporate a blend of both modern and traditional elements. These are the dresses that stand the test of time. "
Prepare for day-of beauty.
"I was really focused on skincare leading up to the big day. I wanted my skin to look glowy and extra fresh, so I relied La Mer Refining Facial Scrub for exfoliating followed by plenty of Rodin Olio Lusso Face Oil."
Make sure your hair is ready for all-night-long dancing.
"I should have let my stylist add more hairspray and perhaps a few more bobby pins to my 'do. After three solid hours on the dance floor, my hair wasn't quite as picture-perfect as it was when I walked down the aisle."
Personalize with your own personal details.
"I love the idea of incorporating personal touches that only the bride (and perhaps her soon-to-be husband!) knows about. For example, a message written on the soles of her shoes or an embroidered monogram with her initials or the wedding date. These are the kinds of secret gems that make a bride's look extra special and one-of-a-kind."
