    I went with my favorite orange and it perfectly matched my bouquet.

    I went with french ombré and a little swirly design on my ring fingers.

    I considered doing a dark red to match my bouquet, or a dark green to match the BMs dresses, but ultimately decided to go the more neutral/traditional route.

    I am going with a more nude color, I never wear color on my nails.

    I'm thinking this, except more of a red burgundy and a rose gold stripe to go with my color scheme. I want dark nails as I never really do mine with three kids & housework 😅 I can do a nude any time.

    I went basic with pink and white tips and glitter on top I honestly wasn't very fond of my nails. Felt like they were a little too long and could have been done better. Buuutttt I was already nervous about getting married the next day and just let them be. Lol

    I get fun colors all the time. I'm sticking with classic square French nails for my wedding. I don't want to be trendy, I want to be timeless that day.

    This is pretty! I like how it combines a subtle theme with a splash of boldness with the design!

    Something subtle. I never do bold nails anyhow, and I don't want my nails to be a distraction on my wedding day. Just not my personal style.

    I like classic, maybe French manicure for me but I would just close your eyes and see how your mind pictures your nails. If it's bold go for it, that's you and if it's classic go for that. No matter what, you will be a beautiful bride!
