10 Things Every Bride Should Have According To Carolina Herrera


In the latest issue of The Knot magazine, we sat down with style icon Carolina Herrera for the ultimate list of wedding must-haves. Here are her tips for any bride-to-be (you’re going to want to bookmark this one — or better yet, pick up a copy of the Spring 2014 issue for yourself!).

1. A dress with personality

Wear a dress that makes you feel confident, beautiful and — most of all — like you. (Psst…this dress was on the cover of our Winter 2013 magazine!)

2. A touch of fantasy

Add an unexpected detail (like this whimsical Cheryl King veil or BCBG moto jacket) for that extra something special.

3. The perfect shoe

I love a heel that elongates your legs. Choose one that’s comfortable enough that you can dance the night away, like this strappy nude sandal.

4. Natural beauty

Don’t try something new, or completely not you, on your wedding day. Just keep looking natural and you’ll be radiating beauty.

5. Something borrowed and something blue

I like keeping up with tradition — find a “something blue” and a “something borrowed” that are meaningful to you.

6. Fun!

Don’t stress every little thing. Sometimes the least planned detail makes for the best memories.

7. Jewelry

Your best accessory is your groom, but if you need a runner-up, crystal or diamond earrings come in at a close second.

8. Flowers you love

My favorite bouquets are bunches of sweet peas, lilies of the valley, peonies and garden roses.

9. Time to relax before the wedding

Slip into slinky pajamas and get lots of beauty sleep.

    I think every modern day bride should capture the memorable moments of her special day and keep them together on a wedding website. What a great tool for reminiscing.

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
