Bridal Trial Four real brides-to-be unveil their dream Big-Day looks.

Bridal beauty has been quite straightforward for centuries. No matter how eclectic or out-of-the-box you normally are, a fresh, beautiful face basically transcends all cross-sections as the most coveted look when walking down that aisle. And with good reason: you want to be able to look at the wedding pictures decades from now and not find a tacky digi-perm (cringe!) or dated goth lip in sight.


Everything about a blushing bride is appropriate, reverent, and feminine. However manufactured that flush is, what woman wouldn't want to emulate those first snatches of love? Plus there's that whole Cinderella thing, and there's no changing that.


Regardless of how steeped one is in tradition, though, keeping the look tailored to your personal style is always refreshing and appreciated. Looking like a vision in white may already be par for the course, but by all means, leave things old, borrowed, and sickly blue to your everyday dumpster-chic for now. The Big Day's all about new beginnings.
