The purpose of this exercise is to show some great ways of accessorising with your personality and style, to guide you into your own direction. (Do not get confused with seasonal colour schemes and personality. Just because you have a bold personality doesn’t mean you will look good in a bold colour!) Do any of these seasons describe you? Which one do you have the most in common with? Which seasons do you lean to? Weddings are always in fashion and trends are always great ways to style yourself to now. There is nothing wrong with wanting the super styled fashionable wedding and trends are great to modernise any look. Keep in the know with the latest bridal fashion and trend, but proceed with caution. Like everyday fashion, what’s hot today may not be tomorrow, so when you choose the latest style ask yourself: 1. Is it likely to date quickly? 2. Is it ……..(how you wanted to be seen on you day: Elegant? Glamorous? etc) 3. Is it classic style? 4. Does it match my personality? 5. Does it flatter and enhance my features? 6. Am I going to look back at my photographs in ten years time and wonder what was I thinking? The most important aspect when making your decisions for your wedding is you need to be totally honest with yourself, even when you don’t want to be. You need to choose wisely and make the right decisions as wrong choices can’t be undone after your day! Our advice is to go with your personal style and tastes rather than latest fashions and trends. If you want your look to be up to date, wear a classic dress and latest accessory. Accessories will give you the modern look you want, they are less likely to date and you can wear them again and again.
