“Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.” – Gwyneth Paltrow

I already revealed to you that I have hired a stylist to do my hair and makeup on our wedding day. Now that my hair and makeup trial is approaching, I’ve been searching high and low for inspiration for my wedding-day look. My dress is vintage inspired, so I’d like to complement it with a look that channels the 1920s Hollywood glamor. My ears will be bejeweled with these Art Deco earrings I scored from Perfect Details:

The vintage Hollywood look is becoming really trendy again, so there are plenty of resources out there for inspiration. My favorite look at the moment is red lipstick, subtle metallic eyeshadow, blush cheeks, and lonnnnng come-hither eyelashes:

I haven’t decided on a hairstyle yet. This one is tough, y’all! There are so many options! Like many girls before me, I’ve been growing my hair out for the wedding, so length shouldn’t be a limiting factor. I am gravitating toward an updo with lots of volume and details:

And I loved Mrs. Sparker’s wedding-day hair—it’s hard to go wrong with a chic chignon!
So, I need some help! How do you think I should wear my hair on my wedding day? For those of you who are already married or who are past this stage of wedding planning, what inspired your wedding-day look?
