#WinifredWednesday - Bouquets for the Classic Bride

Who doesn’t love flowers?  They smell nice, they look nice and they have an amazing ability to brighten even the gloomiest of days.  At Winifred Bean we're crazy for all things floral, the bridal bouquet being no exception. This week, we’re obsessing over these gorgeous Classic Bride bouquets - we think they’re the perfect pairing to Petals or Tulipe.  And while we love a clean white bouquet as much as the next girl, we love a little flair.  Think green succulents, unexpected purples, or loosely bunched bouquets for a natural, flowing floral look.  Whatever your style, we hope these gorgeous images brighten your Wednesday a little (or a lot)...xo!

#WinifredWednesday - Makeup for the Indie Bride

OK, we admit it - we're constantly pinning hair and makeup inspiration over on our Pinterest board.  Sure, we love a bride's dress (especially when it's Winifred Bean), but we really love seeing a bride fully styled - hair, makeup, accessories, the shoes... What we adore about the Indie bride is her willingness to take a risk or two.  Think fun shoes, an ethereal dress, or a flower crown.  But when it comes to her makeup, pretty, soft and natural are the key words.  

The Indie bride might slide a little gold shadow over her lids for a gilded effect, or opt for pretty purple to reflect her bouquet.  She may emphasize her pout with a little bordeaux lipstick, or choose barely-there nude for a natural but gorgeous effect.  The options are endless, but we've managed to round up five of our all-time favorite makeup looks for the Indie bride.  Let the inspiration pinning continue!
