It is no secret that I love Sundays. It  is a day which I enjoy lounging, soaking in the sunshine rays, or perhaps staying in pajamas all day. But what is extra special on this fabulous Sunday, is the celebration of our fathers. This is a day to shower them with a whole lot of love. I mean, they do deserve it, and not just for today, everyday! So, in celebration of Father’s Day, we have asked our friends at Nordstrom Mission Viejo to pull together some father of the bride/groom “must haves”.  The spotlight is definitely on the bride and her groom on their wedding day, however fathers of the bride or groom also deserve some love. Especially if you are a bride. Dad’s and their daughters have an extra special bond which is almost hard to break on the wedding day. So, why not have dad in an amazing wardrobe, and have him feel even more special on your wedding day.  So, for all you dads out there, get ready to find out how Nordstrom Mission Viejo can help you look dapper for your daughter/son’s big day.

Lawrence loves this Canali suit. This wool slim fit jacket and flat front trouser can give the most traditional Father of the Bride a very modern, youthful look. It is also featured in a light grey if the wedding colors are a natural palette.

It’s head to toe service when working with the fabulous Personal Stylists. You have the suit and tie. So, now you need shoes to complete the look. The shoe selection is amazing.  From Ferragamo to Donald J Pliner shoes.

If all that was not enough, there is one final detail which you can not forget.  Besides the bride and groom looking their best for their big day, fathers will also want to do the same.  Dads, you will want to look, feel, and smell your best. Leading up to the big day, you will want to prep your skin. Dad’s, you will want to feel and look fabulous as you walk your daughter down the aisle, or take those memorable photographs with your son.  This is a special day for your daughter or son, but it also a very special day for you. So, why not get pampered? Pampering is not just for girls. Go ahead, enjoy!

  • Make-Up: Beauty Stylist, Sarah Zaret gives this beautiful mother a youthful yet sophisticated look. She uses a Cle de Peau Refining Foundation and concealer along with the Clarins Beauty Flash Balm to give the skin a lifted hydrated appearance.  The Black Navy Liner from Bobbi Brown both brightens and enhances the eye color.  Lips should never be a distraction or too difficult to apply, so Sarah applies the Clinique Chubby stick.  It’s a liner lipstick and gloss all in one. What a gorgeous mom!

To top it all off with a pair of darling Kate Spade Earrings and a gorgeous headband by Tasha, is just perfect.

To complete the yellow laced romantic ensemble, beauty stylist Sarah Zaret creates a fun bridal shower makeup look. She chooses the gorgeous coral color as her inspiration. Coral crush is all the rage!  It exudes happiness and sunshine, and looks great on everyone.  To create the coral crush look, Sarah used Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Brick and cream blush for cheeks and eyes.  For lips she used the new Glossy Lip Stain from YSL, and for a bold brow look,  she used Anastasia.
