This look is by far one of our favorites that has ever been featured here on Once Wed. We were blown away when we saw these magical images from Erich, and we would love to see more brides embrace a darker lip for their wedding day.
Minimalism is the key to this look; Mimi + Taylor styled this black couture gown with simple makeup and hair and red lips to create a striking, yet not overwhelming look. If you’re going to wear a dress out of the ordinary for your wedding, we suggest you keep the rest of your look simple. Let your beauty, and the dress do all of the work.
From Mimi + Taylor:
The second look was inspired by the amazing bold statement gown (also designed by Sonthia Gi). We loved the contrast of the dramatic lace ball gown against the natural oceanside rocks during sunset. Erich McVey’s amazing photography and ability to scout great locations brought the dress to life. It was simply magical! To compliment this couture gown, we decided to go with rich berry-wine lips while keeping the hair understated with loose care-free waves. The final look is seductive, alluring and breathtaking.
Let us know if you’d be bold enough to try something like this for your wedding!
