Bridal season is in full bloom, so we have decided to put together a wedding planning series to fill your Pinterest boards with even more inspiration and help you feel confident on your big day. We understand it can be overwhelming to plan a wedding, but determining a theme is the first step to ensure a smooth and successful day. We’ve created the ultimate series of wedding planning guides for every type of bride, from bohemian to elegant to glamorous. If you’re a glamorous bride looking for inspiration, this is the wedding planning guide for you.
The glamorous bride is all about the “wow factor” when it comes to her wedding. Fashion-forward, confident and bold, she’s sure to plan a fabulous affair that will whisk you away to another world filled with extravagance. She has a penchant for all things sparkly and tends to add her own twist of embellishment onto even the most simplistic details. Naturally, her wedding will make a statement, so opulent chandeliers, oversized rose-filled centerpieces and romantic ambience will come in no shortage. The glamorous bride will look to the red carpet and A-list events for inspiration and will likely channel old Hollywood with her decor. Her wedding will be the most memorable event of the decade, so follow along for inspiration for everything from the venue to the wedding dress and of course, a few Luxy-inspired glamorous hair ideas.
The key to a glamorous wedding venue is choosing something that is bold and makes a statement. A room with unique architectural details such as glittering chandeliers or ornate crown molding will set the glamorous bride’s wedding apart from the rest. An opulent ballroom, a high-class hotel or historic mansion are all suitable options to achieve this effect.
Wedding Gown Inspo
As for a wedding gown, the glamorous bride will likely wear something with dramatic detailing for her grand entrance. She has a soft spot for glitz, so gowns with a beaded bodice or crystal embellishment are strong options. Her dress will make jaws drop when she ascends down the aisle, which means something with an elegant low back or voluminous Cinderella-inspired skirt would work wonders to achieve the glamorous effect.
The glamorous bride loves anything with bling, so she’ll naturally be a big fan of hair accessories when it comes to her wedding hairstyle. Her look will be topped with a touch of sparkle, which makes a glittering crystal hair clip the perfect option for a bridal hair accessory.
As for wedding hair, the glamorous bride loves high volume and texture, which is why Luxy Hair extensions are key. Even if you aren’t looking to add length, Luxy Hair extensions work flawlessly to add volume and thickness to provide that extra wedding “wow” factor. Whether you decide to leave your hair up or down, Luxy Hair extensions make any hairstyle possible by adding extra thickness and length. Check out a few of our favourite glam hair looks that incorporate Luxy Hair extensions for inspiration:
1. Teased, thick curls
The glamorous bride has a “go big or go home” mentality when it comes to her hair. She loves the look of attention-grabbing, voluminous locks and luckily, she can totally achieve her dream wedding hair with Luxy Hair extensions. To achieve the look of luscious and thick curls, follow the steps in the “romantic wave” portion of our DIY wedding hairstyle guide.
2. Side swept Hollywood curls
For the glamorous bride who wants a little elegance but still all the drama, side swept, glamorous Hollywood curls are a great bridal hairstyle option. We love the look of this crystal clip floating right above the ear to show off the bride’s glowing skin and chiseled cheekbones. To achieve the balayage effect of this photo, be sure to use a set of Luxy Hair extensions that are a shade lighter than your roots. This adds a sunkissed, ombre effect to the hair without all the damage of actually bleaching it.
3. Cascading Updo
For the glamorous bride who wants to wear her hair up, we love the idea of a voluminous style with cascading, face framing pieces. A look like this is perfect to try with Luxy Hair extensions to achieve the fullness and thickness. To achieve the look, be sure to try out our twisted updo hairstyle tutorial and add some glitz by incorporating a crystal hair clip.
The glam bride loves wearing dramatic makeup on a daily basis and her wedding will be no different. A deep smokey eye with shades of golden bronze or charcoal are great options to bring the bridal glamour. She treats makeup as an art so winged liner, fluffy false lashes and perfectly lined plump lips will all be a requirement for the glamorous bride’s primping routine leading up to her big debut.
Since the glam bride is such a fan of sparkle herself, she’ll likely want to see her bridesmaids in something glitzy as well. Full blown sequin dresses or metallics are an eye-catching option, or the bride could also opt for just her maid of honor to wear something glitzy to make her stand out.
The glamorous bride will want a cake that leaves an impression on her guests. Decadent tiered layers complete with floral-shaped fondant, metallic frosting and even edible sparkling sprinkles will be options she considers when designing her dream cake. The bigger, the better!
