What I Wore to..My Engagement Party

So when you are recently engaged you want every excuse to wear a white dress.. I was super excited to have a engagement party. So of course I wanted a dress I would cherish forever and I decided on a fab white Crystal encrusted Rachel Gilbert . I was so excited when it arrived and was worth every penny. image  It was a strapless dress but I felt it needed straps as I felt I would be pulling it up all night as the crystals are quiet heavy and I am quite busty. I visited a family friend who is a seamstress and got her to add straps to the dress. image My theme was Old Hollywood so I wanted a lot of glamour I picked a pair of diamond stilettos up in a shoe shop in the Liberty’s in Dublin City they were worth a small fortune but looked amazing on. image image Earrings were Crystal Pavè bezel drops by Jon Richard and the hair clips were by Vincenza for Debenhams I loved the vintage plating on these as it really added character to them. image I booked into Citywest Hotel Angel Hairdressing for my hair to be done. Stylist washed, dried and ran the wand through it to get the relaxed Hollywood curls I asked for then myself and my lovely friend Serena had lunch in the hotel with our fresh makeup free faces before we set off to get our makeup done. image Tada the final look that Debroah from Closer2Fabulous created having worked with Debroah as a model. I cannot praise her work enough whether it’s under pressure or in a relaxed environment she always manages to make you feel like you are far away from the stresses of the outside world. She also takes her time to make sure you are 100% Fabulous and I opted for dewy Hollywood carpet fit makeup! L❤VE It !! image Some photo’s my man took before we left our room for our party. The bracelets I am wearing are Pearl charm by Thomas Sambo and the Crystal bracelet in the middle is from Forever21 image Myself & My handsome Hubbie to be at our party 💏 (Note the sky scraper Crystal stilettos I earlier wore had to be changed for a comfort /lower heel) 😂 image Have you a engagement party to plan.. if so what are you planning on wearing ? 💏

Bridal hair & beauty inspiration.. from New York Bridal Week!

Florals

This year we are seeing a lot of floral garlands or single flowers in bridal hair trends very boho chic/midsummer night’s dream. Personally I love floral hair accessories I think it really brings beauty to a look. Kate Moss pulled off this look for her wedding day!

Curls
Curls are still a big hit especially the 1920s/1950s designs adding that little bit more creativeness to a style  especially on long hair it gives hair the lift it needs.

Braids
French plaits and fish tail designs are big again giving a edgier style to a look. Maybe Disney’s frozen is to thank for this ice princess style. I also think it can relax a look and its very flattering on the face as it tends to be messy instead of structured.

You can also change this look from night to day by choosing to tie it up later in the evening or the opposite and let your hair down.

The Sophisticated ponytail
Simple yet chic this really suits brides who want the the minimalist look if your dress is plain or satin this can be a nice touch. It’s very dainty look for a bride that is very lean as it doesn’t add too much volume to the face or dress.

Princess inspired
A lot of princesses have worn this look most recently princess Catherine aka Kate Middleton its classy yet relaxed and romantic it has a etherdal vibe to it and is nice for the bride who likes her hair down.

Old Hollywood
This look stems from the 1920s Hollywood stars and who doesn’t want to look like they stepped off the red carpet. This style can be done with a lot of teasing the hair to sit into a sleek style . And also you can mix it up by adding finger waves then brushing them out to give more volume to the look,depending on your personality

As you can see all the makeup looks compliment the overall look, soft, natural, and beautiful.
Remember it is your day, and your look should not only to be what you want but it should also compliment your dress number one and your makeup. You should feel comfortable ,confident and like a princess in your own right 👑
