Okay we have all heard the craziness that is planning a wedding. On top of that, Brides have countless occasions and events to get Prept for, from the engagement party to the bachelorette party to the big day and even the honeymoon (+ everything in between)...it can all feel overwhelming.
Here @ Prept we are believers that Brides should be able to look & feel their best throughout their whole bridal experience, without the stress of curating the perfect looks on their own.
We put together a fun shoot showcasing helping a bride-to-be feel beautiful, confident, and “prept” for her wedding weekend in Charleston, SC featuring style + beauty help from Prept and event planning expertise by The Weekend Collective. All of the details surrounding wedding weekend events were curated and coordinated to perfection for the perfect southern soiree. In this blog we are sharing more on wedding weekend curated looks and our style inspo.
The Weekend Lookbook
With the dress nailed down (thank you Lovely Bride) we started curating different weekend lookbook that included:
- Rehearsal Dinner
- Bridal Luncheon
- The Big Day (accessorizing around the dress)
- After Party
We wanted to play with textures, variations of white, and some color to mix it up. You don't just have to stick to solid white... you can really get creative to add that WOW factor, standout, and feel like the outfit is special and out of the ordinary - because what better excuse to do this but your wedding! We also wanted to play with new + vintage options - Brides have more options than ever these days to leverage gently used, vintage, and even rented or thrifted pieces.
The Bridal Luncheon
Vibe: Feminine, floral, pastel, summertime, chic garden luncheon to celebrate the bride to be at the start of the wedding weekend through a unique outdoor setup at the Wentworth Mansion. We went with a light pink Amanda Uprichard dress adding in some pearl and crystal accents with a headband and bag, and paired with a nude sandal. Natural makeup + waves rounded out the special look.
The Rehearsal Dinner
Vibe: Romantic, elegant featuring off-white and gold accents for an evening affair at the roopftop of The Dewberry. We went with a stunning Needle & Thread ivory dress with some sparkle and completed the look with hair pulled back into a bun so the dress could have its moment.
Enter the fiance! We paired the groom in a window pane jacket, grey slacks, white button down, and slippers to compliment. Men need love too and "the look" is perfection when you consider both the Bride and Groom and how it all comes together.
The After Party
Vibe: Vintage, sexy, fun to compliment hints of deep red valor and black and white marble flooring at Henrietta's at the Dewberry. We played with two looks here and in general it is ALWAYS good to have options as a Bride, you can't have enough just in case something happens and as you might change your mind. We tried out a white on white look with a slip dress and Cult Gaia clutch + vintage number with insane (in a good way) embroidery detail.
The Wedding Day
Vibe: Modern, light, airy with hints of lilac accents. Outdoor ceremony in the Dewberry Courtyard with inside reception in the Ballroom. The Big Day consisted of a Sarah Seven dress that had sleeves (so in right now!), veil with pearl details, and studded shoes to add a little pop when seen.
See all the vendors involved in the shoot below & comment and let us know what you think!!! Which look was your favorite?
