We have seen some absolutely stunning bridal makeup, and right now we are obsessing over all of the striking lip colors brides have to choose from for the perfect wedding day pout!

Whether you want to keep your lips looking naturally kissable or bold and romantic, we are going to share the perfect high end and drugstore options in every hue that will be gorgeous (and smear proof!) for when you say “I Do”! And, even better, we have paired each lip color with some of our favorite gowns to complete the wedding look!

Traditional Nude

The most popular wedding day lip look is a nude tone that highlights the bride’s natural beauty and doesn’t take away from the dress. We love a nude lip with this low-back Tara Keely!

High End: MAC Velvet Teddy ($17)

Drugstore: Milani 69: Matte Beauty ($5)

Beautiful Berry

Autumn brides who are looking to add some color to their makeup look are always stunning in berry lips, especially when paired with a delicate tiered gown like this Matthew Christopher.

High End: Too Faced Melted Liquefied Longwear Berry Lipstick ($21)

Drugstore: L’Oréal Colour Riche Lipstick in Blushing Berry ($9)

Orange-Toned Red:

This is for our bold brides who just love a good lip color, even on their wedding day! Orange tones look absolutely beautiful and compliment gowns that allow you to delicately show a little skin, just like this sweetheart Matthew Christopher gown we have been loving!

High End: Kat Von D Lipstick in A Go Go ($20)

Drugstore: NYX Liquid Suede Lipstick in Orange County ($7)

Classic Red:

Of course, we could not forget about a favorite for winter weddings and brides going for an Old-Hollywood look: red! We love seeing a red lip with a sleek, satin gown like this Ysa Makino that gives every bride a beautiful sparkle.

High End: Sephora Cream Lipstain in 01 Always Red ($14)- I swear by this stuff!

Drugstore: Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate Moss in 001 ($5.49)
