Like so many other ’90s trends, the slip dress is making a comeback! We love the way this simple shape looks for weddings. (It might have something to do with the dress Monica wore when she married Chandler…) The new slip dresses are still as no-fuss as ever, and the body-con silhouette is still anything but boring! Here, some of our favorites for 2014:

Bridesmaid’s got back! While wedding gowns with dramatic and elegant backs have been a major trend in 2013, after October’s Bridal Fashion Week we’re willing to bet that the backless trend will hit bridesmaid dresses in 2014. We love that it’s subtly sexy and more fashion forward than your traditional bridesmaid silhouette.

When it comes to getting a beautiful back for the big day, we recommend exfoliating with dirt. luxe salt scrub followed by a little Caudalie Divine Oil for seriously glowing skin.

Here, our favorite new ways to get the look.

Laid-back, 1970s style is a big trend in weddings right now, so it’s no surprise that effortless hairstyles inspired by the decade are high on brides’ request lists, too. This new take on romantic bohemian style is a little more urban and a little more rough around the edges than popular styles from a few years ago, and it’s the epitome of unfussy chic. Here are our favorite looks from Lover.ly to inspire you.

To pull this off, choose one or two vintage-inspired styles to imitate—think a vintage dress and makeup with modern hair—or do the updated 2013 version of your gown, hairstyle, and makeup. Here are four gorgeous vintage beauty looks to get you inspired.

Katelyn beaming on her wedding day.

On October 27, 2012, I reached a major life milestone and had a beauty breakthrough. First and foremost, I married the man of my dreams—and thanks to the talented Brian Sutherby in Chicago, I had classically romantic, best-version-of-myself makeup—and learned quite a bit from it. While the wonderful world of airbrushed foundation can’t be stressed enough (it will change your life), I discovered a few more attainable take-home tips. Here’s how to take makeup from your big day and use it in your daily life:

Equine inspiration is the latest craze in weddings and the more horses we see, the more we contemplate the state of our own flowing mane. Winter is slowly approaching, which means dehydrated strands will quickly follow. Keep your hair healthy and conditioned with a weekly masque or special treatment. We’re big fans of Ojon’s Damage Reverse. Since you shampoo it out after 20 minutes of application, there’s no oily residue left behind. Only super smooth, glossy locks!

Every bride makes a grand entrance, but if you choose a dress with a revealing back, you’ll need to prepare for a grand exit as well. Gorgeous backed gowns give brides the opportunity to look stunning from every angle, but that hard-to-reach area is often neglected when it comes to our beauty routine. Make sure you’re flashing your best rear view by following our simple steps to a beautiful backside (and maybe grab a friend to help).
