Wedding Day Beauty Ideas: Negative Space Manicures

Nails have had a HUGE moment in beauty and fashion over the past several years, so it’s no surprise that brides are just as conscious about the looks they sport on their fingers as they are their hair and makeup choices. And one manicure trend that was spotted on runways during Spring 2015 NYFW was the negative space manicure. The look consists of a clean nail bed in a buff or soft pink color, then adorned with pops of bold shades on nail tips or near the cuticle. And to get your digits ready for the big day, check out out 9 of these negative space manicure trends over on

How To Have a Halloween Themed Wedding Without Going Overboard

The most memorable event of your life shouldn’t be based on a cookie-cutter design selected for you by your wedding venue. Themed weddings, or branded weddings as Something New for I Do likes to say, are the perfect way for couples to create an overall wedding look that reflects their individuality. But as with every wedding theme, there’s a fine line between nailing it and overdoing it. Here are four tips for designing a fabulous (not freaky) Halloween themed wedding.

1. Candy is an element of Halloween that already works well for weddings. Candy-filled dessert bars are currently a popular trend, so playing into the idea of Halloween candy could work if implemented in a way that still says wedding. Place cake plates and jars filled with your favorite Halloween candy around your cake to create a dessert bar that ties in your theme.

2. When working with pumpkins, go for stunning – not spooky. Use mini pumpkins as jack-o-lantern table numbers or as vases for your fall flower centerpieces. Lace-patterned, wrapped and painted pumpkins also make for beautiful wedding décor.

3. Black and orange can even make a beautiful wedding color palette with the addition of accent colors. You don’t necessarily need to use them simultaneously or side-by-side to achieve the Halloween look, but if you do, consider small doses as less is truly more. For example, incorporate black into your décor or wedding cake, and orange into your bridal party’s attire.

4. Tie in elements of fall, not just Halloween. How fun would a reception hayride be? Bonfires for roasting marshmallows, a s’mores bar and pumpkin spice cider for cocktail hour are some ideas that can create the perfect marriage of fall and Halloween characteristics.

Remember, you don’t have to go all out and throw a costume party with fake spider webs – unless that’s your theme! Are you planning a Halloween themed wedding? If so, we want to hear about your inspiration, tips and tricks (or treats).
