Wedding gown

The artsy airbrushed wedding dress

In an earlier blog post I have already challenged the thought that a wedding dress is supposed to be white! At the NY Bridal Fashion Week in April designer Naeem Khan showed a wide variety of colored wedding gowns. The colorful bridal decor trend has flourished, and now we can add a new trend to this lovely wedding spectre - the airbrushed wedding dress! 

 When the artist Taylor Ann got married this summer, it was in a one of a kind artwork of a dress. Bought in a regular wedding dress shop she had taken this gorgeous but quite regular wedding dress and airbrushed it with bright colors. By that she created a very original and brand new wedding dress look.

At the first glans you might think dip died - it is not! You can learn more about how to airbrush a wedding dress here

The reason why I personally admire this bold choice so much, is that she used the colors in her dress as a guide line to the general wedding theme and decor. Even her hair was in the color scheme, and I simply love that!

And then she topped it off with a pair of big boots - at a forest wedding - ingenious!!!

 A wide palette of colors was used, and still nothing seamed uncoordinated or messy! 

Off cause it goes without saying that this is not for everybody, but for the brave, untraditional and colorful bride this might just be the solution. For more information and inspiration you can always check the two links below!

Tattooed Bridal Perfection

Long sleaves and a high neckline - this is what many tattooed brides are looking for. Normally proud of their beautiful art work, as brides they want to hide it, before walking down the aisle. Here strong willed and stylish women tend to bow for the common consensus idea of how a bride looks. And a bride does not have visible tattoos!!!! 

WRONG!!! 

We are here to end this narrow minded idea of the bridal look, and give you some inspiration on, how you can bring together your tattoos and your inner bride.

Tattoos can be both romantic, feminine and very bridal like. If styled in the right way, your tattoos can be the foundation of you whole bridal look instead of the liability you would like to hide.

1) First of all find a dress that compliments your tattoos. They are there, so they need to be incorporated into the look. Does this mean that you are more bound than a non tattooed bride? Both yes and no. As to the style of the dress you are not, but some dresses might look strange or incomplete on you if only half a tattoo is showing.

One way to solve this problem is by laces. By wearing a laced dress you can both show off and cover your amazing body art work.  

Instead of hiding the tattoos, the white colour of the dress and the see-through laces are highlighting the coloured details of this brides beautiful tattoos.

Another excellent wedding dress solution is the bare dress. By this I mean a dress that is strategically bare, in order to probably show off the tattoos.

2) Our second good advice is to coordinator your accessories with your tattoo. Whether it is the colors or the style of tattoo, accessories is a good way to connect the bridal look with the tattoo. You will find that a lot of jewelry often is a bad idea!  

The flower crown is always a huge hit, especially with the tattooed brides. Look how this bride has colour coordinated her flower crown with her tattoo, putting her hole bridal look to a hole new level! No visible jewels as the crown and the tattoo are more than enough to create a stylish and unique bridal look 😍🌹

This lovely vintage looking bride, matching her wide variety of tattoos with a 20's inspired wedding dress is just to die for! Not wearing any jewellery is a wise chooise! The vast detail work of the dress and the many tattoos are a perfect balance. Just enough and not too much!

This is a different approach to the vintage bridal look! Leaving the modesty to the remaining brides and going all in the the Rock'N'Roll bride, matching the brightly coloured tattoos, the dark hair and the dark red lips with the very lady like, divaish and vintage jewellery! I love this, though it is not for everybody 😍🌹

Matching her brides maids and her lips with her tattoos - That is just brilliant 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

3) The third and final tip has to do with contrasts. The pureness of the white dress and the rawness of the tattoos is an example of how opposites can compliment each other perfect. If you play with the given contrasts you will see, that instead of creating a messy and devided look, they will bring out the best of the two worlds and combined them in one amazing bridal look!

In the end the essence is that it can be more difficult to create the perfect bridal look, when you are tattooed, but if you remember to use and show of your art work, then you are already one step ahead of the untattooed brides when it comes to the unique and personal bridal style!   

I have gathered a little portfolio beneath illustrating how amazingly beautiful tattoos can be at weddings 😍
