Wooo! Today’s post makes me so happy. Not just because I love bridesmaid dresses, but ya’ll know I am also the biggest cheapskate ever – so today is like the roundup mecca of awesomeness! Take a scroll through our budget-friendly finds below, wont ‘cha? All of the product information and prices can be found at the bottom of this post.
I started this post thinking I would write a basic roundup of my favorite bridal makeup video tutorials, but SURPRISE … time after time I always keep going back to the same source. So instead, this post has evolved into a love letter to Pixiwoo. With a bajillion views, Sam and Nic are two makeup artists with a bomb.com Youtube channel that features DIY makeup tutorials. And these girls are good. Fantastic, actually. Pixiwoo even regularly features makeup tutorials to mimic popular celebrity looks (Angelia Jolie makeup tutorial, anyone?) and has a full gamut of bridal makeup tutorials.
For a budget bride, doing your own makeup can be an absolute necessity. And in my opinion, Pixiwoo is the absolute best resource! Here are some of our favorite bridal makeup tutorials to get you started.
Now, I know the next video is a drag makeup tutorial, but stay with me here. Believe it or not, this was actually my most helpful video! Pay special attention to these contouring and highlighting tips. For girls with a round, full face like me, this was the difference between date-night-out-makeup and it’s-my-wedding-day-bitches-makeup!
And last but not least, the classic Audrey Hepburn, my absolute favorite tutorial!
There’s nothing sexier than a well-tailored dress. This gorgeous bridesmaid look is sure to flatter your waistline AND your wallet. Throw in a few gold accessories, some seriously sparkly shoes and you have a winning evening look. Best of all, the entire cost of this look comes in just shy of $200.
Man, November got here fast! I guess time flies when you’re busy having wedding blog fun. We kick off this week with a gorgeous budget bridal look! I love the pale tint of this champagne bridal outfit. Throw in some sparkly stud earrings to die for (they’re CZs!), plus a sexy suede pump, and you’ve got a winning outfit. At only $704 for the entire outfit, you’re budget will be happy, too!
I’ve been on a purple kick lately (did you see our new purple, Bistro Chalkboard wedding invitations?). With purple on the brain, it only seemed fitting to create an amethyst bridal look that is both elegant AND budget friendly! Paired with cute peep toe pumps and drop earrings to DIE for, this bridal look is sure to turn heads. Plus, at only $864 for the entire outfit, your wedding budget will love you too!
I love the idea of a destination wedding. While I chose to get married in my home town I LOVE the idea of getting away for a little R&R while you are in the midst of last-minute wedding stress. Plus, you can just extend your stay after the wedding – there’s no need to travel again for a honeymoon! This bridesmaid look is so bright and airy! Add in some fun accessories and your girls are sure to match their tropical surroundings.
I’m sad to see summer go, but oh so excited for the new batch of brides who have begun wedding planning for next summer! I never made it to a country wedding this year, but I LOVE the idea of a soft flowey dress with warm distressed leather cowboy boots. Isn’t this outfit just divine? And even though we’ve dedicated this look for bridesmaids, the BEST part is that this ensemble would also be GREAT for a bride on a super strict budget!
