If you are hoping to have a wedding that is as chic and stunning as Audrey Hepburn is, take a look at our tips below!

Take your inspiration for your dress from Hepburn’s actual wedding dresses! Some looks just say “Audrey Hepburn” more than others, such as:

  • High-Neck or Boat Neck Necklines. These necklines are super classy and timeless!
  • Tea Length Dresses. Tea length dresses were a big trend in Hepburn’s time, and choosing to wear one for your wedding is a surefire way to channel her fashion!
  • Pretty in Pink! One of Hepburn’s most recognizable wedding looks was her ballet pink dress that she wore when she wed Andrea Dotti. There aren’t an abundance of ballet pink gowns these days, but blush dresses are definitely on-trend and are a gorgeous way to make your bridal look really stand out!

The Hair

Audrey Hepburn was often seen with her hair up in a coiffed updo, possibly in part due to her training as a ballerina. You can channel this for your wedding hairstyle, no matter your hair length!

  • A Clean and Chic Bun. A ballerina bun is always a classy look, as well as a great way to keep you cool at a summer wedding!
  • Pinned Finger Curls. For those with shorter hair, finger curls are a great way to bring have the feel of Audrey Hepburn and her time period, without the long locks!


The Makeup

Understated and flawless are the words I’d use to describe Audrey Hepburn’s makeup, and channeling her look is easily attainable for your special day!

  • Blushing Beauty. Flawless skin with rosy pink cheeks is the way to go for Hepburn-esque face makeup!
  • Flattering Statement Lip. Up your makeup game by having a statement lip, but keep it elegant with lighter colors like coral, pink, or blue-toned reds.


The Accessories

Audrey Hepburn was all about simple lines and minimalism, so just like her makeup, her accessories were understated and timeless.

  • An Elegant Headpiece. Hepburn wasn’t big on glitz and jewels, but an understated and sophisticated headpiece is never a bad idea!
  • Perfect Pearls. Pearls are the epitome of classy chic, so pearl earrings and/or a pearl necklace is the perfect accessory for your Audrey Hepburn inspired nuptials!


The Theme

Choosing a theme for your wedding can be a daunting task, but if you want an Audrey inspired wedding, it’s a piece of cake!
