Carolina Herrera’s 5 Tips for Looking Your Best on the Big Day
Whether creating gowns for every-girl or for celebrities such as Jessica Simpson, Caroline Kennedy, Renée Zellweger, and Christina Hendricks, the designer and living legend knows what it takes to prepare a bride for her walk down the aisle. Here, her words of wedding wisdom.
Pick What You Love
"Remember that finding a flattering silhouette isn't the only thing to consider when selecting a dress. It must suit your personality as well."
"Regardless of where you purchase your dress, have a professional seamstress do the alterations, because she'll have an eye for the correct proportions."
Add Your Own Touches
"Jewelry, shoes, flowers, hair, and makeup are also a reflection of your personality. Choose accessories you adore, but don't wear too many. I like to let a bride's beauty and the elegance of the dress speak for themselves without lots of other distractions."
Give It a Boost
"As you are walking in, have someone fluff the back of your dress. It adds a bit of drama for the big moment."
"Remember to take a breath, and soak in all of the love that you'll receive on that day. Because when you see your fiancé standing at the end of the aisle, nothing else will matter."
