Nudes may be nice, but is there anything as utterly romantic as a red lip? Or as flirty and fun as a pop of pink? A dramatic, yet wearable, lip can be a chic way to go a little bold on your wedding day — as long as you don’t overdo it.

“It’s best to keep the rest of your makeup minimal and soft. Fresh, glowing, hydrated skin; a soft highlight on the eyes; and a touch of rosy blush will complement a bright or bold lip well,” says Alexandria Gilleo of Dutchess County-based Bridal by Alexandria. “I recommend using a lip pencil to line the lips and prevent any color from bleeding.”

Gilleo shared seven of her favorite bright-and-bold lip colors for brides. “Just remember that with confidence you can rock any shade,” she says. We couldn’t agree more.
