If this past year has taught us anything, it’s that the show must go on! Whether your wedding was pre-pandemic, post-pandemic, or paused because of the pandemic, the planning hasn’t ended and most likely got a little more complicated. This year we have seen an influx of intimate weddings and gatherings relying on the tiny details, and special moments rather than the typical big & bold weddings we were used to.
On the flip side of these more intimate weddings, brides have the opportunity to focus on the smaller details that sometimes get overlooked. Beautiful linens, cutlery, and bouquets, are some of the few things that now command your attention. But aren’t you forgetting something? The bride’s look is always number one - pre and post-pandemic!
The celebrity weddings over the past year have had some jaw-dropping looks and included vows from some of the biggest stars! Ariana Grande, Jeannie Mai, and many more tied the knot with elegant hairstyles that set Instagram’s radar off the charts.
