This post is for the women who have already gotten married.
You ladies are all so BEAUTIFUL! Everyone looks so stunning and like they are MEANT to be a bride. Is it a natural transformation to be that lovely on your wedding day or is the difference night and day?
Anyone brave enough to post pictures of how they looked on their wedding versus a normal good photo of themselves? I bet this would also help future brides realize that they can look as pretty as all of the pictures they see, it’s partially an illusion.
I ask for a friend…yes, that’s it. A friend who is average and looks average and does not think she will look even half as stunning as any bridal picture she has seen. TOTALLY not me. Nope.

Ok I will play. I still felt like myself, just improved. I spent more on makeup so that I could be comfident and just feel amazing on my big day. I think it was worth every penny (although DH didn’t think so, men just don’t get it 🙂 I also think that having a good photographer helps because they know how to place you and the lighting and angles that will make you look your best. Ahhh if only I could look like this everyday 🙂

@Tina.Baker: Wow. You look incredible in your wedding photos. You’re makeup artist really made your eyes pop. They look so much more blue on your wedding day.

@Tina.Baker: You look beautiful!
@MrsFutureG: I think all brides look gorgeous on their wedding days! I teach 5 and 6 year olds and showed them our video highlights and they all said that doesn’t look like you! I said which one looks better, they pointed to the wedding and said that one!
Here is a normal photo
And on our wedding day

You ladies all look amazing both before and on your wedding days. Thanks. My “friend” is relieved to see not everyone starts out jaw droppingly stunning.
Also, @joymarie, WOW. Everyone’s pictures are amazing but yours? Wow. Your husband’s heart must have skipped a beat when he saw you come down the aisle!

I like playing with makeup, so I’m used to the transformation. Sometimes I do not feel like myself at all, other times I feet like myself just with improvements. That said at the wedding I felt like myself, just better.
Normal life (minimal makeup) :
Wedding (full makeup done by a professional)
(ps. this is just the best closeup of my makeup currently available. It’s not exactly the picture I’d chose to represent my big day.. but whatever)
