Who doesn’t love wedding photos?! If you’re like me, you might start looking at a friend’s wedding album then somehow come across another wedding and get lost in a whole new love story of up-dos, decor and dresses. This happened to me once I came across my fellow Fashionista’s gorgeous wedding on my Instagram feed. Erica and I used to work together when I was a young summer intern at Victoria’s Secret — I always admired her effortless style and that showed through as she tied the knot just a few months ago. While most brides to be may opt for a classic up-do — Erica’s wedding look is the perfect inspiration for the non-traditional bride who wants to stand out for more reasons than her white dress.
When deciding her look, Erica wanted to channel, “the modern-day gypsy who loves natural glamourous hair and doesn’t try too hard.” Hair stylist, Dominick Pucciarello created gorgeous soft, cascading loose waves for the ceremony.
“My inspiration for my hair look was very boho inspired. I love that natural, effortless vibe with a touch of glam. My dress was the statement piece and my hair was the accessory so I didn’t want anything too overpowering. I just needed a nice accent.”
For the reception, Erica added a touch of glam with a beautiful head-piece. I love the idea of mixing it up when you’re ready to party! Being Pakistani, I especially adore this look. For the past couple of years, the trend at many Pakistani wedding I’ve attended has been incorporating a headpiece into your look. Whether you’re the bride or a guest it’s a great way to be festive and fashionable. It’s so awesome to see part of Pakistani/Indian culture being translated into American style. For a while it was very rare to find a piece of jewelry like this in the US but now they are so accessible. Glad I don’t have to make them out of my mom’s necklaces anymore. (True story). Erica’s wedding look is one of my favorites I have ever seen — I hope you find them just as inspiring! Be sure to follower her on Instagram for even more style inspo!
