@NVMox2480:  I think they look different enough but not too dramatically different. They say that you should be the best version of yourself on your wedding day anyway. Looks great to me.

@NVMox2480:  I think that they’re different enough to be able to tell a difference, but similar enough that you still look like you! For our wedding I had a neutral, smokey eye that was a little bit more intense than my every day makeup, obviously the coverage stuff, and then a gorgeous coral color lipstick. The only thing different was the eye intensity and the lipstick. DH loved that I still looked like me, just a fancier version!

It’s really about what you want though! If you think you may want something different, have your MUA try it!  I think it looks gorgeous right now and totally bridal, but it’s all about how you feel about it. 🙂

Honestly my day-of makeup was just a slightly heavier, slightly more bright/colorful version of my everyday. I DIY’ed but doing it that way worked out great.

It doesn’t have to be that much of a departure to look beautiful. (Especially if you know what looks good on you already, it’s natural they’d look somewhat similar.)

I like it but I feel the lip color might be a bit too trendy.. I don’t know. I’d go with a darker pink shade vs. the bright fuchsia.

I think it looks great! Once your hair is done, you’ll feel more “special”.

If you changed anything (not that you need to) you could smoke out your liner on the bottom instead of having a hard line. It will look more sultry.
