Got dress pictures? Just because posts are always better with pics 🙂

I don’t think there is a bride “look”. You should do your makeup in a way that makes you feel like you and fabulous.

I think you should do exactly what you want, and it will be perfect. The idea that you won’t look “like a bride” is hogwash, IMO. You’ll BE a bride. Do waht works for you.

Sounds like a bride to me! I told my friend I didn’t wanna wear a veil and she said, “but then how will people know youre a bride?”   LOL.. ummm, my wedding dress??

It sounds bridal to me too. I’m going to take a guess and say that the people giving you hassle assume poofy dress=bridal?

From your own description, the image in my head is of a beauty queen, not a bride, but you should look how you feel beautiful. It’s your day. (Definitely concerned, however, by liquid eyeliner.)

@opal86:  I told my friend I didn’t wanna wear a veil and she said, “but then how will people know youre a bride?”

Hmm, the wedding vows might give it away… 😛

I also think all the comments people make about needing to “look like a bride” are lame.

@Ashley_B:  Do what makes you feel beautiful!  My older sister got married on the bay; however, she did not go with the typical flowy beach wedding.  She put clip in extensions in and had big curls, and did a smokey eye with false eyelashes!  Some may have thought that wasn’t typical for a beach wedding, but she did what she wanted and looked gorgeous!  You should do the same!
