As a bride-to-be, you want to be the most gorgeous woman that has ever walked down the aisle. You want to be more than pretty – you want to be radiant, stunning and truly amazing from all points of view.

Truth be told, beauty will always be in the eye of the beholder – so you can rest assured that your loved one will always see you as the prettiest girl at the ball. And yet, if you want to feel great in your own skin for the Big Day, here are some useful bridal beauty tips for you:

  • Your beauty preparation starts now. Believe us, the long-term changes can go a very, very long way when it comes to making you feel really beautiful. Stop biting your nails, grow your hair if you want to, apply a very good cream on your face, start working out and eat healthier. These are the kind of changes that will make you radiate beauty from within.
  • Remember: trying new looks before the wedding is, most of the times, a very bad idea. Sure, that fiery red may look amazing on you – but if it doesn’t, you might find there’s not enough time to get rid of it. If you want to make a big change before the wedding, do it at least a few months in advance, so that you have enough time to switch back if you don’t like it.
  • Careful with that spray tan! It is definitely more advisable to get a bit of spray tan than to stand in the sun, but keep in mind that just a little is what you need. Going too crazy on the fake tan will not look good on anyone.
  • Last, but not least, remind yourself to create a bridal look that accentuates your most beautiful features. Big, sparkly eyes? Choose a makeup style that emphasizes on that. Beautifully arched lips? Settle for a lipstick that will make that pout really pop with grace and elegance.

Know the basics to creating a perfect rehearsal dinner

The rehearsal dinner is one of the most important and emotional pre-wedding events – so, as the couple-to-be-married, you definitely want this party to be really amazing for everyone. How to do it, though? How to plan a rehearsal dinner everyone will genuinely enjoy? Here are the basics to keep in mind when creating the perfect rehearsal dinner:

  • First of all, you should understand the purpose of this gathering. For once, it is a great opportunity to rehearse the speeches and all the other important parts of the wedding reception. But even more than that, it is a very good way to introduce guests to one another, so that they socialize better on your wedding day.
  • Furthermore, you should also know that the rehearsal dinner can be as casual or as formal as you want it to be (from backyard barbecue parties to sophisticated events, everything goes). In general though, the rehearsal dinner is less formal than the actual wedding, but not by a lot (so if you want to have a fancy ballroom wedding, your rehearsal could happen at an elegant restaurant, for example).
  • Also, it is essential to know that the guest list should include all the wedding VIPs and all of the out-of-town guests as well. Moreover, it is also customary to invite the officiant and his/her spouse, so make sure you plan for this as well.
  • Generally speaking, no invitations need to be sent for the rehearsal dinner – except for very fancy affairs. So, if you plan on having a rather elegant party for this pre-wedding event, you should definitely send out invitations (with or shortly after the wedding invitations) and you should also request for RSVPs.

Your wedding is such a special day! Be prepared by knowing what to expect as the bride

Leave a comment

Food Art.jpgYour wedding is just as special as you and your love story are. It is a completely unique moment in your life – and, for many of you, it is a day you’ve been expecting ever since you watched your first Disney fairytale.

What are some of the things you should expect of your wedding day, as a bride? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • Everything will feel like a rollercoaster of emotions. The morning of your wedding? You will not be able to eat much. Ten minutes before the ceremony? You will most likely have a nervous breakdown and you will feel as if the weight of the entire world is hanging on your shoulders (while being excited about it at the same time too). The actual ceremony? The happiest moment of your life! This entire day is bound to take you up and down and then up again – and, by the end of it, you’ll learn to love every second of the good and the bad of your wedding day.
  • Some things will not go as planned. Sure, they will not be BIG things. But some of the details may not be as you have thought them to be. Someone may be late, you may feel a bit dizzy, some of the flowers may have to be replaced last-minute. But you know what? This is what makes this day so much more unforgettable!
  • The “magic” will happen when you least expect it. Of course, saying “I Do” and having your first dance will both be memorable moments you will cherish for the decades to come. But, beyond that, you will find that your wedding will be sprinkled with completely unexpected magical moments too – infuse yourself with these, for they are precious!

Be sure you can relax after the wedding by planning an amazing honeymoon!

Leave a comment


With so much stress associated with the wedding planning, you deserve a relaxing and unforgettable break. How do you plan the perfect honeymoon though? What are some of the most important things to keep in mind when planning your honeymoon? We have gathered them right below – so read on and find out more.

  • Start planning the honeymoon with about 6 months before the wedding. This will give you plenty of time to decide on the location, find a travel agent, save money, research the hotels and transportation, as well as make bookings for everything.
  • Make sure to obtain your visas and passport with approximately 3 months before the wedding (if you plan on traveling abroad, of course). Also, do take into consideration the option of buying travel insurance (especially if either of you has health issues or if you are concerned that bad weather could threaten your vacation).
  • Start thinking of your honeymoon entertainment with about 2 month before the departure. Buy a camera and a luggage and book your activities if they need reservations. Also, if you plan on doing scuba diving, do make sure to start taking lessons and get certified before you leave.
  • With about 1 month before the wedding, reconfirm all of your reservations. Also, find a kennel or a pet-sitter for your furry friend if that’s needed. Last, but definitely not least, start making a packing list as well.
  • Pick up your airline tickets and exchange approximately $50 in local currency with about 2 weeks before the departure. Furthermore, make two or three photocopies of your most important documents (passport, credit cards, traveler’s checks and any other documents you may need on your vacation).

Feminine and delicate, tulle is a wonderful fabric to bring into your wedding décor. But how do you do that? How to incorporate tulle in your wedding in a stunning and truly stylish way? We have gathered some ideas for you – so read on and gather some inspiration from us:

  • For the ceremony. If you want to make your ceremony look as if it was torn out of the most beautiful fairytales, use tulle to decorate the chairs. A simple sash brought together by a small bouquet of flowers will look absolutely gorgeous for the chairs that are closest to the aisle!
  • For the reception. Bring a bit of tulle into your wedding reception too by covering the tables with tulle. This will make everything look fantastic and it will create a dreamy ambiance everyone will love.
  • For the cake. While you may not be able to incorporate tulle into your actual wedding cake, you can incorporate it into the cake’s décor. Create a delicate and summery vibe around your cake by covering it with a beautiful tulle-based canopy – it will look amazing!
  • For your wedding look. A lush princess-like tulle skirt will make you feel as the most splendid bride on Earth. Moreover, if you want to be just a little unconventional (and if you want to wear comfortable shoes), pair an elegant dress with a pair of funky sneakers with tulle shoelaces. This will make you look more than unique!

Your wedding ceremony is a moment you want to remember forever. You want it to be embraced by love and care, you want it to be magical, but even more importantly, you want it to be truly and utterly romantic.

Choosing the right décor for your ceremony altar and aisle can help you create the perfect ambiance. How do you do it, though? What are some of the best ideas to help you create a wedding ceremony that’s simply beautiful? We have gathered some ideas to inspire you – so read on and find out more.

  • Garland may not sound like the fanciest thing out there – but the absolute truth is that it can look really gorgeous. Imagine a wedding canopy made with pastel-shaded honeycomb garlands and how beautiful it will look at your ceremony!
  • Rose-petal aisle. There’s nothing more romantic than roses – so why not incorporate them in your wedding aisle? Sprinkle rose petals along your aisle and you will feel like a true princess as you walk down towards your future spouse!
  • Cute signs. Add a bit of personality to your ceremony by designing a sign that speaks about your relationship. For example, you could ask your wedding party members to flip signs with “Kiss the Bride” as soon as the officiant says it. This will bring a smile on your guests’ faces and it will definitely make for a really memorable moment!

Every bride wants to look gorgeous in her wedding photos, make sure you know how to make this happen!

Your wedding day is a unique moment in your life – so you will want to capture it in photos that are truly stunning. How to make sure you look drop-dead-gorgeous in your wedding pictures? We have gathered some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • Your makeup should emphasize your natural beauty – not overshadow it. So, we suggest you stick to natural shades and techniques, so that you feel really great when shooting for your wedding pictures. Also, try to steer clear of using too much eye shadow – it can have the exact opposite effect of what you are aiming for.
  • To make sure your hair looks gorgeous in the pictures, remember to have it photographed during the trial – and remember to ask the stylist to take pictures from all the angles. This way, you will look really graceful and pretty regardless of where your photographer stands when they shoot the photos.
  • Holding your bouquet. We highly suggest you don’t clutch the bouquet with the arms flat on your side. Instead, hold the bouquet at hip level, with your arms slightly curved away from the body. This will give the impression of a smaller waist and smaller arms – and it will also create a very candid and well-balanced photo as well.
  • The ultimate secret to beauty? Smiling. Smile because this is your Big Day. Smile because you are marrying an amazing man and because you are going through one of the most important and romantic events in your life. Smile for all those people who chose to be there for you on your wedding day! Smile and you will be absolutely fabulous in the pictures!
