After you say “yes” and leading up to the “I do” you’ll be blushing and in total bliss, but do not forget that you’re not the only one that will be getting some major attention. Your new friend, you know, the one that your ring finger now proudly carries will be the talk of the town, everyone will want to see how precious your new stone is. So, believe me when I say your mani madness starts now! Choosing the right color for your up and coming manicures during wedding festivities is important for what it all comes down to really, the photos! You want to make memories that will last a lifetime and you don’t want to offset the highlight of your beautiful, blissful, blush worthy ring with an unsightly manicure. Keep in mind that practically every event leading up to your big day, your ring, and nails will be captures in photos. So, to help alleviate some of the mani madness, I have composed a list with a few colors that will make any pre-wedding and bridal events amazing.
For your engagement party, everyone is going to want to see your ring so the nails too much be on point. Here you can kind of get away with just about any color that expresses who you are, I mean that’s what got him to pop the question in the first place, he loves you for you. Have fun with this mani, make it your own. Don’t forget that you can also jazz up these mani and make them even more blushing by adding designs, glitter, rhinestones and more.
