Wedding Dress Ideas: Oscars 2013 Trends

The Academy Awards was an evening filled with bombshell beauties, their handsome dates, and Oscar trophies. The big winners of the night, Jennifer Lawrence for Best Actress and Ben Affleck for Best Picture, snagged top honors, but the real winners of the night strutted their fashion on the red carpet. Here are 5 trends we found that you and your loved one should try for your own big day!


1. Trumpet Wedding Dress

Every woman dazzled on the red carpet, including Maria Menounos in her gorgeous hip-hugging magenta gown. The Romona Keveza dress she wore was not only classy, but also showed off her hourglass figure without the fuss of extra material or designs. Try this simple trumpet style gown with a sweetheart neckline to accentuate your curves. For this style, wear minimal accessories, especially if you decide to add some sparkle to the gown!

2. Vintage-Inspired Wedding Hairstyles

For hair, Reese Witherspoon looked absolutely stunning with her side-swept, vintage-inspired soft curls. Not only do these curls highlight the face, but they are also easy to do if you want to style your own hair for your wedding day. This hairstyle is always great with small earrings and nude or light pink lips for a soft vintage look.

3. Light Pastels Wedding Dresses

Jennifer Lawrence and Amanda Seyfried weren’t just a hit on the big screen, they also wowed with their white floor length gowns. Lawrence’s gown was a fan-favorite with her mermaid-style ivory strapless gown, while Seyfriend was equally as beautiful in her daring light lavender dress with heavy embroidery. For your wedding dress, try a unique appliqué like Seyfriend or venture towards a figure-flattering gown like Lawrence’s for a gown that will surely be red carpet fabulous.

4. Elegant Tuxedos for the Groom

The men looked especially handsome for Oscar night including Channing Tatum and Chris Pine. As these hotties strolled in with their tailored black tuxedos everyone could tell that bow ties were definitely in. Pine wore a double-breasted suit while Tatum wore a more traditional vest with his tuxedo. Keep in trend for your groom-to-be and pick a bowtie over a long tie this coming season.

5. Grooming Ideas for the Wedding

It is often expected for men to shave their beloved facial hair in time for their wedding. However, Hugh Jackman and Ben Affleck proved that full facial hair is equally as sexy. Grooming is essential for your man; so don’t let his hair get out of hand. For the wedding, have him trim his beard so he can look like these A-listers for the big day.
