In life, there are few days more significant than your wedding day. You’ve found a spark with someone, it has grown into a flame, and now, you’re going to make it official for all the world to see. As the bride, you no doubt want to look your sexiest and most elegant.
Hitting these markers is easier than you might imagine. Don’t buy into the false belief that looking and feeling sexy is somehow inappropriate for weddings. Sexy is a powerful state of mind and you deserve to experience it on your special day. By following a few simple tips, you can embrace your sexy side while remaining the picture of grace and elegance.
Choose the right dress
This may seem obvious but getting the right dress is absolutely paramount. If you want to feel sexy and look elegant, you need a dress that suits your personality and flatters your figure. Whether you go with a ballgown, a fit and flare, something hot off the runway, or the dress your mother wore, make sure it fits. Do as many fittings as it takes to get things absolutely right. Nothing feels less sexy than a dress that pulls at the seams or one that keeps sliding down your body.
Dare to bare
Don’t be afraid to show a little skin. A plunging neckline, a low back, lace, or even a slit in the skirt are all great options for a sexy look that remains classy. Look for a matching wrap or bolero if you are concerned about revealing too much during a conservative church ceremony.
It’s all about the details
Feeling sexy and elegant doesn’t just come from the dress, it can also come from the things you wear with the dress. A sexy pair of shoes can completely transform the way you move and carry yourself in your dress. You might also consider getting a set of wedding lingerie. Is there anything that can make you feel sexier than beautiful underthings? Even if you have to wear something more practical during the day, knowing you have something to slip into at the end of the night can add that extra swagger to your step.
The right finishing touches
The right make-up can accentuate your natural beauty. Whether it is a full smokey eye with a bold red lip or something a little more natural, make sure that the look you choose suits you and your dress choice. You want to feel your most beautiful while still being recognizable to those that know you. Think about the things you like best in your daily make-up choices and take them to the next level.
When it comes to your hair, leaving it down is easily one of the sexiest options. But, of course, this depends on the type of hair you have and your dress. An updo can showcase your neck and shoulders in a very subtle, sexy way. Add a tiara, ribbon, or jewelled accessories for a little extra elegance.
When it comes to feeling sexy, your smile is perhaps your most powerful tool. You are marrying the person of your dreams, why not let the world see how happy you are about it? Strut your stuff with your smile on full display. Let your joy shine and you will instantly be your sexiest, most beautiful, self.
