The Dos and Don’ts of Your Wedding Day Make-Up

Oct 11, 2013

Planning the perfect wedding requires making what seems like a million uber important decisions. While the groom might disagree with the life-altering level of gravity, we don’t! While you fuss and flutter over every last detail, your bridal accessories and make-up shouldn’t be a stressor. We’ve got some solid make-up tips that will have you glowing when that magical day finally arrives! 

Do:

* Bring references to your make-up trial. Start looking for images of make-up that you really like, and bring them with you on the day.

* Focus on the most important elements of your look, such as beautifully natural-looking skin, softly groomed brows and feathery lashes. If you get these basic factors right, the rest of your make-up will fall into place.

* Wear a white t-shirt if you’re having your make-up tested in a store, so that you can see how the make-up looks against a pale color.

Don’t:

* Have your make-up test done anywhere with overhead fluorescent lighting.

* Just apply make-up to your face. Instead, extend down your neck and over your shoulders if necessary, this will ensure you face is not a different color or even texture to your body.

* Go for anything too trendy. You have to live with these photos forever!

* Rush. Allow at least 45 minutes to an hour for make-up application on the wedding day.

Looking your best, from your wedding dress down to the very last bridal accessories, need not be a stressor.

Follow these simple rules and you’ll look picture perfect on your wedding day! What are some of your wedding day dos and don’ts? Let us know in the comments below.

 

There’s a Spider in My Wedding Dress & Other Wedding Superstitions

Oct 4, 2013

In the past we’ve talked about some timeless wedding traditions, such as the bride wearing something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. These are only a small handful of traditions and superstitions that are followed throughout an engagement and wedding ceremony. Here are some lesser known superstitions that have been followed for years by brides and grooms.

According to Greek culture, tucking a sugar cube into your bridal gloves will sweeten your marriage.

Have you ever heard the rhyme, “To change the name and not the letter is to change for the worst and not the better”? This means that it’s bad luck if both the grooms and brides last names start with the same letter.

The English believe that it a sign of good luck if the bride finds a spider in her wedding dress.

Have you ever wondered why engagement and wedding rings are worn on the fourth finger of the left hand? It was once thought that a vein in that finger led directly to the heart.

Bells are chimed at Irish weddings to keep away evil spirits and to ensure the couple has a happy family life.

Not engaged? No worries! Legend has it that if a single woman sleeps with a slice of groom’s cake under their pillows they’ll dream of their future husband.
