ACOTAR in a nutshell
To all of you who are not from the book community… let me give you a little background to the wonderful world of ACOTAR.
It follows the story of Feyre Archeron, a young huntress who is dragged into the magical and dangerous faerie lands as punishment for killing a faerie wolf in the woods.
As Feyre navigates this treacherous realm, she discovers a complex web of politics, magic, and romance.
The book combines elements of fairy tales, romance, and action, creating a gripping and immersive tale that explores themes of love, sacrifice, and self-discovery.
So are you ready to dive in?
Creating the fairytale look
When it comes to finding the right look for your fantasy-inspired wedding you have got to be picky.
Everything should fit your style even when you want to incorporate elements or take inspiration from these books.
So if you’re unsure about what to do with makeup and accessories then here are some quick tips.
For accessories, consider a tiara or a floral crown to evoke that princess vibe.
Long, flowing hair or a romantic updo could complement the look beautifully.
Consider adding some dainty jewelry with a fairy tale theme, like a charm bracelet or a pendant inspired by a beloved fairy tale.
As for makeup, go for a natural, dewy look with soft, rosy tones.
If you’re feeling adventurous, you could add a touch of glitter or a subtle shimmer on the eyes to enhance the magical atmosphere.
