20 Stunning Latina Wedding Looks To Consider For Your Fall Wedding

When it comes to the big wedding day, every bride wants their look her best and Latina brides are no different. If anything we tend to go over the top with just about everything from the veil to hair and makeup, and of course, the dress. We have to stand out because, primero muerta que sencilla. 

For some novias, the wedding dress or suit is the most important choice a bride makes, and for others, it’s all about the accessories, especially those who want to use accents to highlight cultural traditions.

If you’re a Latina looking for a unique look for your wedding this Fall, here is some inspiration to make sure you look anything but sencilla on your big day. 

Embroidered Dresses

These dresses are beautiful expressions of traditional hand-sewn styles from Mexico to Peru and are unique ways to add color to a seemingly boring white dress. This is a special way to remind your guests how proud you are of your roots.

Flower Crowns

Not all queens wear tiaras. Channel your inner Frida Kahlo in a bright pop color and a beautiful flower crown to adorn your hair. These flowers can match your bouquet for a more cohesive look or you can go rogue and style a more earthy, boho look.

Elegant Vintage Goth

Today’s brides have no reason to play by the rulebook. Break the rules, rock your tattoos and wear whatever type of crown you want to wear. This bride walked down the aisle with a dark glam, gray hair and a stunning headpiece to complete her look.

Botas Vaqueras

Some of us are vaqueras and proud to show it. Many brides are incorporating a cowgirl theme into the wedding and the outcome is fun and picturesque. There are also many pros to having a cowgirl-themed wedding. For one, you get to opt for cowboy boots which means you’ll be square dancing to el Caballo Dorado all night in a great pair of comfy boots! Second, who doesn’t smile when they see a great pair of boots under a wedding dress?

Lacy, Sexy, Cool Jumpsuit

Big puffy dresses can get heavy and are not very practical. Brides have the option of rocking bridal jumpsuits like the one above. Some novias like to jump out of their dresses after the religious ceremony and party in a more relaxed outfit like this. And if we’re honest this is just as eye-catching as a big puffy dress.

A Succulent Bouquet

Bouquets composed of unexpected floral arrangements like wildflowers or succulents can make a statement. This is also another way to incorporate your culture into your wedding. You can use succulents, flowers from your country and even some nopalitos.

Crowns And Headpieces For The Reina That You Are

If you’re a reina and you know it, rock your crown. Forgo the traditional veil in favor of a crown or tiara to lend a unique elegance to your look.

Jeweled Heels

Looking to sparkle from head to toe? Wearing gems on your feet are the perfect accent to a cool winter wedding (and an excellent “something blue”). Closed-toe shoes are a better option during the chilly fall temperatures.

Cultural Dresses

Mixing traditional elements with versatile styles, flower crowns can pull a whole bridal look together. For many brides, using a traditional dress reminds them and their families of how far they have come and how they plan to continue growing forward their culture embedded in their new family.

Goth Glam Bride

White isn’t for everyone. If darker hues are more your style, black might just be the option for you. Black dresses are the default when it comes to glamorous events and a wedding does not have to be any different. With unique accents, you can bring out your glam or bruja style into play.

Cathedral Veil

For those of you planning traditional religious weddings, the classic and elegant cathedral veil is always a gorgeous touch. These types of veils have been worn for centuries and they add an extra sentimental touch. In addition, if you don’t want your hair blowing in the wind, you can opt to have a light veil floating when you walk outside to make for a great photo opp.

Something Borrowed

If you are looking to incorporate a special element into your bridal look, consider wearing “something borrowed” from a family member like a shawl or jewelry piece that is meaningful and will give you confidence on your special day. Not everyone has their mother or grandmother around on their wedding day. Adding a piece that belonged to them can sometimes make the bride feel like that person is present.

Volume Fit For A Queen

For some brides, the bigger the dress, the better! A long veil and a wide skirt add the illusion of an hourglass figure. Plus, this is called a princess style for a reason.

Dashing Suit

If a suit is more your vibe, stand out in your own style with a dapper, well-fitted suit. Suits can be accessorized with a bow, tie, cool color accents and, of course, a great hair day.

Greek Goddess

If you choose comfort over style but also don’t want to look frumpy, a greek type of silhouette is the perfect option. Channel your inner goddess or fairy with flowy gowns and hairpieces that make you seem as though you stepped from a forest sanctuary and into your wedding.

Nails As Sparkly As Your Ring

Everyone will be staring at your hands on your wedding day. Some brides opt for a nude polish but if you’re the ultimate glam girl, you have the option to add even more sparkle to your hand. Most nail salons have gel polishes with glitter but there are others that offer appliques like mini stones or pearls.

No Such Thing As Too Much Lace

My mom has said that lace tends to look like you’re wearing a mantel. But traditional lace sheath dresses can be great for all body types and lend a romantic elegance to bridal looks. To avoid the tablecloth look, try a more delicate lace that isn’t bulky or heavy.

Flowy Beach Bride

If you plan to leave the cool weather for a beach wedding, you can do no wrong with a loose flowy gown, perfect for barefoot strolls and a seaspray ceremony. The style is effortless and the pictures are perfect — as long as you check the weather before.

Evening Veil

Bring a touch of vintage romanticism into your look with a vintage mesh veil that reveals your beautiful face. This is a lighter option that is much easier to manage than getting tangled in a six-foot veil.

Geometric Dress Design

Show off your personal style with a dress that hugs the curves and has a pattern all it’s own. These cutouts are what can make a dress more memorable.

Vanessa Romo Marks The Cover Of Vogue México In A History-Making Feature

Vogue México knows a good trend when it comes to the fashion world. Their recent decision to feature model Vanessa Romo on the cover of their September issue proves that they also know a classic too. Speaking with Vogue México the model opened up about her career, challenges, and experiences that have allowed her to position herself as one of the modeling world’s most prominent figures.

The model with Mexican roots started out her career by modeling on small projects then moved up to uploading images to Instagram and eventually became discovered by Forever 21. Soon after, the North American fast-fashion brand offered Romo a collaboration and she was ultimately signed to an agent.

Now she’s Vogue México’s September model.

In her interview with Vogue, Romo says that the first time she saw plus-size models on a runway, her view of the fashion industry completely shifted.

Seeing women with bodies just like hers, made Romo feel represented in a way that was beautiful and confident. Speaking to Vogue México, Romo explains that she struggled her first two years as a model because she was still in college at University of California, Santa Bárbara. Because of her Latin roots, Romo studied Chicano Studies and Spanish. Her interest led her to continue to explore her identity and Romo decided to audition for Nuestra Belleza Latina on Univision in 2018.

Romo told Vogue that she decided to take part in the competition because she knew there was a need for this representation in the Latino community. When she finished the contest, she realized that she needed to continue breaking expectations for models.

“With this new inspiration, she decided to learn to love her body. Modeling and fashion were for her a way of exploring her own confidence and growing her,” Vogue México revealed. “The power of modeling captivated her so much that it was then that she realized that she herself wanted to be part of the change. Just as she needed empowerment, she knew that there were so many girls and women who needed it equally.”

Cardi B’s Balenciaga Dreams Have Officially Come True! — She’s Their Latest Face

Fans of Cardi B know that the big-time rapper has long loved Balenciagas (particularly the ones that look like socks)!

As it turns out the feelings between the high-end fashion brand and the “WAP” rapper are 100% mutual. This week, Balenciaga revealed the face of its new campaign and it’s your girl Cardi B.

This week, Balenciaga debuted Cardi B as the face of its winter 2020 campaign.

In the images of her new Balenciaga campaign, Cardi can be seen wearing a midnight blue evening gown while lying down on a sprawling colorful lawn.

The Balenciaga ad featuring Cardi is currently strung up outside the Louvre in Paris. According to Dazed, the photo (which shows Cardi rocking a black bob while lying amongst a bunch of children’s toys) was self-shot in Los Angeles during the COVID-19 lockdown. 

Cardi’s appearance makes for a big-time Afro-Latina first.

It’s commonplace for fashion houses to use famous faces to model their clothes but Balenciaga has kept away from the practice up until now. Cardi’s appearance makes her the first celebrity that the luxury fashion house has ever tapped to head a campaign. Cardi’s appearance also makes it a first for the rapper who has never modeled for a major fashion house.  

Cardi’s celebrated the news on her Instagram.

“Ya looking at the face of a Balenciaga campaign!” she wrote. “I remember how I felt seeing myself on a billboard in NYC Times Square but Paris! Wish I was there to see it in person!”
