Any bride (or woman, for that matter) would tell you that they have imagined their dream wedding dress at least once. Now, on Brides.com, you can test-drive that dress to see if it can be a reality.

The new Wedding Makeover tool on Brides.com has an extensive library of wedding gowns that you (or a virtual model that shares your shape) can “try on” before you head out in search of your dream gown. You can also get a head start in dressing your bridesmaids for the big day.

No makeover is complete without a little hair and makeup-and, the Brides.com Wedding Makeover delivers with a plethora of hairstyles and makeup shades you can test out. Then, print out your complete look and hit the stores (or salons).

Whether you’re mapping out your wedding day look, or simply looking to have a little wedding fun, the Brides.com Wedding Makeover tool is a surefire way to make sure that, on this day, you look absolutely fabulous.

This RealSimple.com beauty article is meant to give women step-by-step makeup ideas for a night out on the town. Even so, I think that these looks can transfer nicely into the big day for a stylish bride or her ‘maids.

After all, I love a bold lip color going down the aisle could make a huge impact.

Although the bridal mags will always carry sound advice on makeup looks for your big day, I couldn’t help but admire the looks on Elle.com’s beauty special. The makeup choices suit red-carpet royalty of various styles and skin tones, which will definitely suit you for their wedding day and many other occasions thereafter. After all, you are queen for the day.

As I went through my own hair and makeup trial for a wedding I will be walking in next week (which, by the way, was a success), I figured it would be a good idea to share a few helpful artcles dealing with big day beauty for the brides and for my fellow ‘maids.

Big day beauty is a BIG deal.

As I perused StyleCircle, I took notice of this inspiration board compiled by one Adrienne Careccia O’Connor dedicated to an important, but somewhat overlooked element of the wedding day: the hair!

Naturally, this would be the time a bride and her ‘maids would want to look their absolute best and how the hair is styled is crucial to that overall “Man, I look FABULOUS!” feeling. This board highlights some popular hairstyle options; perhaps you can find something to suit your fancy. Enjoy!
