So today’s the day I head up to Newcastle for the Love MyDress Summer Soiree. Having had the pleasure of meeting Annabel a few times now and as a big fan of the blog I was very excited to get the invite and even more so that I’ve been able to arrange my diary so that I can go as the guest list will include the cream of the UK wedding industry and who doesn’t love an excuse to get all dressed up for a night out?
The dress code is 'glamorous, gorgeous and vintage inspired' so with the help of my mum (her wardrobe and sewing skills!) I’ll be wearing a 50’s style black & white cocktail dress with some cute black bow wedges, and if I can remember where I "safely" put it away I do have the perfect vintage diamond neckace too.
Lots of guests are having their hair and makeup professionally done for the evening but as I won’t get to Newcastle until late afternoon I’ll be taking the DIY route (and probably doing my makeup up on the train).
I’ve spent the last few days scouring the internet for ideas and am currently deciding between these two looks for my hair:
DIY hair tutorial by Keiko Lynn via Bridal Musings & How to create a 1060’s inspired Beehive by Elsie Larson of A Beautiful Mess via Rock’n’Roll Bride
and these make-up looks...
Shady Eyes tutorial by Keiko Lynn & Old Hollywood Glam video tutorial via The Beauty Department (quite like this Ooh La La hairstyle too-though not sure how it would work with my fringe)
If you're looking for hair and makeup tutorials for your wedding day I highly recomend you check out The Beauty Department as they have lots on there.
Ooh decisions, decisions...my current thought is the half up do with a bit of a wave at the ends with the Hollywood Glam eyes, those smoky eyes could be tricky...What do you think?
