Something that is described as ethereal is exquisite, gentle, and light, an otherworldly type of beauty. I don’t know about you, but that sounds exactly like what I would want my wedding to look like! That wonderful romantic and ethereal wedding is easily achieved with just a few simple steps. This wedding, photographed by Kelsey Prater Photography, is the perfect example of romantic, ethereal bridal beauty!
1. The Hair
Soft, loose, natural hair is the key to a romantic hairstyle. This updo isn’t pinned too tightly, and the bohemian-esque braid is the perfect touch. Hair can be worn either up or down for your own ethereal wedding, but the fundamental idea is having a style that looks gentle and relaxed, nothing too sharp or harsh.
2. The Dress
Just like with your hairstyle, it is important that the style of your dress is soft and flowy, as opposed to the tight and structured style. This dress couldn’t possibly be more romantic! The length of the train, the lace, and the delicate beading are absolutely swoon worthy. Paired with a long veil, this look is the ideal inspiration for an ethereal and romantic wedding.
3. The Venue
Luckily, almost any venue can be used for your ethereal wedding. Some can use a few more touches to complete the look; for example, if your wedding is indoors, a few soft fairy lights really dial up the ethereal, romantic feel. Some venues already have that aesthetic and don’t need much decorating, like the lovely outdoor venue featured above.
4. The Photographer
Your hair, dress, and venue can all be perfect on the day of, but without a photographer who can capture your wedding in the right way, all your hard work won’t translate to your pictures! You need a photographer like Kelsey Prater, who knows what you’re looking for and understands what you want the final product to look like.
We hope this simple guide gives you all the inspiration you need to plan your own ethereal and romantic wedding! Be sure to ask Kelsey Prater Photography to capture your flawless day, and tell her that The Pink Bride sent you!
