Reasons for your choice

You need to be aware of what colours are right for you too. You might want to consider getting your colours done so that you know for sure.  Do you look good in crystals, rhinestones or pearls? Get help from your family, friends, a wedding planner and the people who work at the bridal salon. Consider it being made personally for you by a professional.

Wedding ceremony formal vs casual

It still remains a personal choice for the bride and groom, but it seems like the new generation prefers to draw from their own imagination, rather than stick to the traditional ways. While choosing between formal and casual wedding ceremony, the thing remember is that your wedding day is an once-in-a-lifetime occasion and how do you picture this day in your mind.

The stiff necked tuxedos and traditional white gowns are thrown away for themes dresses and setting close to the couples’ heart. Casual weddings are now held anywhere, on a beach, on a boat, a hill, a meadow, in a beautiful garden or by a lake, somewhere that means something to the people tying the knot.

Wedding day makeup tips

Bridal wedding earrings with crystalsWomen from all walks of life are looking forward for their wedding day to come so preparations go meticulously including how they should look on that special day. To make them the most beautiful bride, here are some wedding day makeup tips that may be helpful to make them shine and stand out. Put in mind that the bride will be wearing a white gown so the makeup should be just right, not too light nor too heavy. Foundations should be applied evenly on the face and set with sheer finish powders to last longer. Use water resistant eye liners and mascara to withstand tears since emotions may pour down. Before applying lipstick, line it with lip liners first for long lasting effect and choose brighter colors like rose, pink, plum, or others that are two tones brighter that what the bride usually wear. An additional layer of lip gloss can add glamour to the lips and finish it with a vibrant colored blush to highlight the look.

5 interesting wedding etiquette you should know.

Beach wedding accessories- Dolphin Toasting setThere are countless of wedding etiquette that you may encounter as you plan your wedding. Here are 5 wedding etiquette that might strike your interest. In today’s economy, it is not a violation of the etiquette if the couple themselves and other family members contribute to the wedding expenses. If traditionally there is a rule on who pays for what, now that rule can be modified. Giving out of invitations should be done at least 3 weeks before the wedding date to give ample time for the guest to accurately plan their schedule. If you don’t want your guest to bring along their children, you can include the phrases “Adult Reception” or Adults Only Reception” in the invitation. If you are wearing gloves, you can take them off before the ring is worn. As much as possible avoid putting the ring over the gloves. The best man and the father of the bride traditionally give the toast, but if you want other people to propose a toast, it will not be a problem.
