Mother of the Bride: Wedding Hair

We all know that the bride and groom are the center of attention on their wedding day, but as the ones who brought them into the world in the first place, you deserve to look your best! After your dress and shoes have been purchased, you need to start thinking ahead to how you plan on doing your hair, makeup, and nails for the big day.

There are three basic hairstyles: letting your hair down, pulling the top half up while the bottom hangs loose, or a full updo pulled into a bun or similar coiffure. Mothers with short hair or those attending a more informal wedding can get away without doing very much to their hair, but more formal affairs often require the assistance of a professional hairdresser.

When deciding on the best hairstyle for your daughter’s wedding, a stylist can be your best friend. Finding the most flattering hairstyle for each face and body type is their specialty.

The key is to use your hairstyle to create balance. So if you have a tall, broad forehead, you should choose a style that minimizes it by having some hair drape across the forehead. If you have a narrow face, choose a style where the fullness frames the face to visually “widen” it rather than piling hair on top of your head to elongate it further.

When doing your hair, it’s also important to take your cues from the bride. Don’t let your fancy updo outshine hers at her own wedding. A tastefully chosen hair accessory is appropriate – provided it doesn’t draw attention away from the bride on her big day.

You can use the software below to “try on” new hair colors and styles for your daughter’s wedding. Simply choose which model you’d like, choose the color of hair that’s closest to your own or be bold and try a new color. You can choose whether your hair is long, medium or short, wavy, curly, or straight, etc. Have fun! It’s free.

Mother of the Bride: Wedding Makeup

As far as makeup, you’ll want to begin taking better care of your skin several months before the wedding. Moisturize daily. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, visit a spa for a facial or mask – by then you’ll probably need to decompress from all the stress of helping with wedding planning, feminine anyway!

Some mothers of the bride do their makeup at home themselves, and that is always an option. But be careful: nothing would be worse than getting the wedding proofs back and realizing that you had embarrassing “pancake face” or crooked eyeliner in all the family pictures!

Whether you use a professional or do your wedding day makeup yourself, avoid the temptation to cake it on in an effort to hide blemishes or signs of aging. There are two reasons for this: for one, you want to look like yourself in the pictures. Two, by the end of the long wedding day the makeup will settle into the lines in your face and make you look older than you really are. When it comes to makeup, less is often more.

It goes without saying that you want to use only the highest quality beauty products on your child’s wedding day. This makeup has got to last and stay looking beautiful all day, and you often get what you pay for. Choose waterproof mascara and eye makeup – even if you think you’ll be totally composed during the wedding, on your child’s big day you never know what emotions will unexpectedly overtake you!

Mother of the Bride: Wedding Nails

A final consideration is what to do with your nails. A day or two before the wedding, visit a salon or give yourself a manicure (and pedicure, if your toes will be showing!) at home. Give yourself enough time to correct any disasters, but not long enough that the polish will start chipping, flaking, or cracking by the wedding.

Choose a neutral nail color. A French manicure is one of the best, most natural nail looks for your child’s wedding day. If you choose to paint your nails in color, stay in the pink or red family. Avoid bright colors, especially any that clash with the wedding colors.

With the perfect dress, shoes, hair, makeup, and nails, you’ll be ready for anything on your daughter’s wedding day. As the mother of the bride you should pamper yourself a little, so you can look your best.
