Her simple, yet elegant bouquet is the perfect accent to her stunning dress. According to the Knot, "Fresh picked, wild looking bouquets are still reigning in the land of florals. In their recent article, titled '7 Hot Wedding Trends For the Fall,' "Finishing Touches, such as small vines of ivy, elongate the shape of traditionally arranged bouquets, giving them a whimsical appeal, while unexpected add-ins, like thistle and small leafy twigs, capture the spirit of the outdoors."

We are loving the half up-do styles on the bride and her bridesmaids. This bumped twisted half up-do (far left image) is a stylish look perfect for saying 'I Do's.' Another great way to add texture is to add in a braid (far right image). According to The Right Hair Styles, half up-do's are a very popular and trending on Brides and their Bridal Party.

Check out this gorgeous Bridal party! Even the smallest personal touch can make all the difference. For instance, we love how all the bridesmaids wore their hair up, except for the Maid of Honor, next to the Bride, who wore her hair completely down.

Layers twisted back into a up-do gives this look a unique but elegant style.

Nude lip makeup is the minimalist style trend that you'll love to try! Finding just the right lip shade for your special day can be overwhelming, so here's some help from Brides magazine where they feature "20 Flattering Lipstick Colors for Every Kind of Bride."
