weddings // mani Monday nails

Happy Monday, y'all!  I've been "Little Miss Weddings" lately as a bridesmaid, wedding photographer, and good ol'-fashioned wedding guest.  As a result, I wanted to share some of my favorite sightings of lovely wedding-appropriate manicures, courtesy of (what else?!) Pinterest!

I am generally in favor of crazy nails with bold colors, patterns and designs, and experimentation -- but NOT on your wedding day.  I found a lot of over-the-top ideas on Pinterest (just search "wedding nails" and you'll see what I mean) and some of them are borderline acceptable, but for the most part I think sticking with soft pink, blush, or peach tones is a good idea, or go with the good old-fashioned French tips.  My only exception to this (aside from subtle glitter) is going red.  It's still a classic shade and if it fits your wedding and your personality, go for it.

What do you think?  What did your wedding day manicure look like?  Would you rock a bold color or fancy design on your nails for your wedding?

Please, whatever you do, don't do this for your wedding.  Or ever.  I beg you.

Linking up with Heather & Heather!


  1. I love the first 2! I imagine I would end up doing my nails like that when/if the time comes.

  2. Oh I LOVE the one with the band on the ring finger, what a cute idea! Great inspiration friend :)

  3. I love the little extra sparkles... Too cute & adorable!

  4. These are all so fun, but I especially love the first!
