As we already mentioned wearing a pompous hairstyle is not your thing, even if it is one of the most important days in your life. So, the best alternative to the chic hairstyle would be an updo, which is still better than a simple blowout without looking too dressy. Don’t forget to adorn it with a beautiful brooche borrowed from your grandma.

Skirt Ensemble

In fact brides can wear any attire they want on their wedding day and you shouldn’t limit yourself to dresses only. Consider a top and skirt ensemble in the matching colors. Besides, you might even replace the skirt for a shorter and thus flirtier alternative for a reception dinner.

In case you are not used to wearing heels on a regular basis, then you should probably avoid them on the wedding day since you don’t want to slip in the aisle. Consider accessorizing your bridal look with classy patent leather oxfords or velvet slippers, which work equally well both with a short dress and with a trouser ensemble.

Want to stand out with your wedding day look, but still remain chic and stylish? Go for a blazer and trouser ensemble in crisp white. You will not only look dressy and elegant, but also portray yourself as a fashion-forward girl that is not afraid of going beyond the bounds.

If you still want to keep one of the key elements of the wedding day – the wedding dress, but still add an effortless feel, try to keep the rest of your look subtle including hairstyle, makeup and accessories or simply avoid them. Don’t allow the stunning tiara or diamond necklace steal all the attention from you.
