Updated: Jan 20



When it comes to Paris elopement, bridal style is the part brides care about most.Your wedding day is your day, the important day that you are the main character. Therefore, having an elegant bridal style is an essential element to helping you be confident and stand out in your once in a lifetime ceremony.


1. PARIS BRIDAL MAKE-UP

Here are a few reasons why it could make sense to a hire a professional hair and makeup artist for your Paris elopement.


Eliminates Stress

It is your wedding day, and, of course, you would want to look your best on this very special occasion. You may know how to do your hair and makeup, but won't it be better if somebody does it for you? Yes, hiring a professional hair and makeup artist is highly recommended because this will lessen the stress. All you have to do is sit back and relax as they style your hair and make you the prettiest bride, ever!

They know the current trends, and they will surely apply those to you so that you would look better during the big day. You will be the star of the day, plus the work of a professional artist will make you look better on cam.

2. WEDDING DRESS


Should i prepare the dress before come to Paris?

Even if Paris one of the greatest places in the world to find beautiful wedding dresses and wedding accessories I would recommend to take care of all that back home.


Let me tell you why.


It takes time to find a perfect dress

Your stay in Paris is limited, and you wouldn't want to spend it all on finding the best wedding dress. If you do this back at home, you have all the time in the world. You won't have to rush. And as a result, you'd find one that you really like.


You can fully enjoy Paris without stress

Finding the right wedding dress is exciting, but it could be stressful, too, especially if you are doing it in a rush. If you find your dress before you head to the city, there will be less stress. You can then focus on other things needed for your wedding, or you can simply enjoy Paris!


How to bring your dress to Paris?

A Paris wedding is a dream come true for a lot of women. But if you are doing a Paris elopement, this means that you will go to the destination with your dress. You would want to pack light so stay away from bulky dresses as much as possible. Get something that is flowy and light as they are much easier to transport. Avoid putting it in your checked-in luggage as well so that it won't get that wrinkly.


Which dress should I chose and where to buy it?


Ball gown elopement dresses

A ball gown is an excellent option if you are rectangle or pear-shaped as it can help create the illusion of curves and disguise the fullness of the hips. The internet would be a good place to start your search. You can also visit local stores.


A line elopement dresses

An A-line dress is very flattering mainly because of the silhouette of the skirt. Now, if this is what you want to wear for Paris elopement, you can check out online shops like Moonlight Bridal, David’s Bridal, Bridal Guide, and many more.


Mermaid elopement wedding dresses

Mermaid wedding elopement wedding dresses are current and stylish. They are fitted and daring, and they are certainly a fashion statement. You can see the most gorgeous mermaid dresses on Etsy.


Boho elopement wedding dresses

When it comes to an elopement wedding dress, Boho-style is surely the most classic. They come in all sorts of designs, which give you a lot of options to choose from. Visit Scout Bridal, Etsy, Emmy Mae Bridal, and BHLDN to see the most beautiful Boho-style wedding dresses.


Casual elopement dresses

If you want to be an 'informal' bride and you want to stay away from the traditional look, then a casual elopement dress might just be the right fit for you. The Knot, David's Bridal, and For the Love of Stationery feature plain yet stunning dresses.


The feminine dress suit

Most brides wear dresses or gowns during their wedding day. But if you want to look different or more unique, put a feminine dress suit on instead. Brides, Loho Bride, Floravere, and MATCHESFASHION are some of the best places to look into.


And if you are looking for a Bridal in Paris, here are some brands that I really love and would recommend for you.

3. CHOOSE THE PERFECT FLOWER ARRANGEMENT FOR YOUR ELOPEMENT



Take Note of the Setting

The flower arrangement needs to jive with that of the setting. If you opt for a park side ceremony, take a look at the colors of the flowers found in the location and try to match them. But if you prefer a more natural effect, go for wildflowers. This right here blends well with the outdoors and natural locations


Consider the Season

Sure, there are plenty of flowers out there. However, you need to consider seasonality. Find out what's in season and what's not. If your elopement wedding will be held come springtime, bright and cheerful flower arrangements are highly recommended. For fall, though, look for those with deep colors.


Pick Your Favorite

Needless to say, you need to pick flowers that suit your preference. If you have a favorite, then find out if it is in season. It could be something that your groom gave you on your first date. Consider the style, color, and smell as well.


Know the Florist's Location

Since an elopement wedding is not as big as the traditional ones, you can't expect everything to be available and delivered right away. With this, it is important that you know the location of the florist. Try to pick the flowers up yourself if it's not too far away.

And if you are looking for a Florists in Paris, here are some artists that I really love and would recommend for you.
