Posted by Caitlin on Jul 31, 2013

Our third favorite summer color scheme — emerald and navy blue! This inspiration board is fit for a preppy bride searching for her “something green” instead of her “something blue” since Pantone announced it’s 2013 color of the year. Incorporate emerald into your bouquets, boutonnieres, and bridesmaid dresses but also navy blue into your stationery, peep toe pumps, and mixed berry chiffon cake for an added nautical look.

This week on the blog, we’re sharing all of our summer hair and makeup tips. We know prepping to walk down the aisle is a momentous occasion for any bridal beauty. So, look your best — right down to your nails and toes — with these shades, depending on your skin tone:

Fair Skin - Blush, Fuchsia, Beige and White. The term “blushing bride” will get a whole new meaning thanks to pops of pink. Or stay traditional with natural nudes or a french manicure.

Olive Skin – Aquamarine, Silver, Coral and Lime. If you’re still searching for your “something blue,” lacquer on a pretty periwinkle. Or if you want a modern effect, stick to a shimmery metallic finish like silver.

Dark Skin - Gold, Navy, Red and Orange. Rock red lips in confidence with a vintage crimson hue to match.

Red

Would you rather be comfortable as you walk down the aisle? If your primped and pampered toes can agree, choose these firecracker red ballet flats.
