Perfect Wedding - Bridal Make-Up

Perfect Wedding - Bridal Make-Up

This video below, has some very good and helpful tips on how to look great not only on your wedding day for all your guests, but also on how to look gorgeous in your wedding photos.

Many brides who normally do not wear makeup, or wear much makeup when they do, , are afraid of adding heavier makeup to their face for their wedding day look.

Consider this! It is supposed to be the only wedding day you will ever have, and with that in mind, , you do want to WOW, your groom, and everyone else on this special day by putting your best face forward (as well as hair), right? Of course you do.

So, why not give everyone a pleasant surprise (or even shock!) by going with a more dramatic bridal look?

You'll look and feel sexy, awesome, wonderful, beautiful on your special day, and you'll look the same in your wedding photos!



Below are some makeup "Looks" we thought you'd appreciate!

Wedding Trends In 2012 To Be Aware Of: READ & SEE PICTURES BELOW:

Weddings In 2012 ~ Expect To See A Lot Of The Following:

WEDDING DRESSES: In 2012, expect to see more Victorian style (inspired) wedding dresses with a hint of color to add drama, and romance. The desire for change, will draw brides toward these soft, sexy styles that express femininity, new beginnings, elegance, and a return to simplicity.

MORE THAN ONE WEDDING DRESS: This trend, which has been in play for a while now, will continue into 2012. Basically the bride chooses a more elegant gown for her ceremony, and a more simple wedding dress (perhaps even a party style white dress) for her reception that will allow her to let her hair down and have fun!

Yeah, , sort of like the Taco truck! Sounds crazy, right?, , and maybe a little "tacky", , however, , , if done properly, a Food truck at a wedding can be a fun addition to your overall wedding day and theme. For Example: For an outdoor wedding where you WILL provide a catered meal for your guests, , , a Food Truck can be a great way for your guests to satisfy their cravings, or hunger while waiting for the festivities to begin. Food Truck services may not be for everyone, but we're sure to see a few wedding receptions with them in 2012.

WINE TASTINGS: Expect to see this trend at weddings in 2012, , where in addition to the couple providing champagne for their guests to toast with, , , a local winery may be hired to provide samples (aka tastings) of their wines to the newly wed's guests at no cost to the guests.

WEDDING COLORS: While we're likely to see some brightly colored weddings in 2012 (which are wonderful!) Brides and grooms of 2012 will want to convey feelings of tranquility to their guests. Because of this, , expect to see a trend of neutral colors (and ultra-romantic themes) in 2012. Expect to see combinations like beige (or browns) and shades of blue in 2012!
this is more blue and brown than our wedding, but this is a good blue/turquoise example Pictures, Images and Photos

FULL-OUT DESSERT TABLES, CANDY BUFFETS, & GOOD NIGHT STATIONS!! 2012 brides and grooms will want to treat their guests like they're visiting grandma's house (as in everything you want to eat at hand!, and nothing's a no no!) Dessert tables display everything from pies, cupcakes, pastry's, coffees, to chocolate fountains with strawberry's and other delights to dip. Candy Buffets (currently popular) will continue in popularity as decorative treat stations in 2012. Good Night Stations - Will consist of a final treat for the guests at the night's closing. This can include things like donuts, and coffee.

Money Saving Quick Tips - For planning a wedding

Money Saving Quick Tips - For planning a wedding

It's not only time consuming to plan a wedding, but it's also very expensive. Below are some helpful tips to cut some of the costs.

1. To save money on the alcohol bill, try having your waiters walk around and offer your guests their choice of wine, rather than leaving open bottles of wine at every table. Leaving open bottles of wine on every table, may save time, but often results in a lot of wasted wine that you still have to pay for. You can also have wine served in carafes rather than bottles. This way you can buy the much larger bottles which are less expensive than the table size bottles. Let your guests pay for heavier alcoholic drinks themselves via an available bar.

2. When it comes to the bridal gown shops in your area, pick one and stick with that same bridal shop. You may find that some if not many bridal gown shops, as well as tuxedo shops offer discounts or rewards if you use their services to dress your entire party. When you go to a shop to check them out, ask them if they offer any discounts in such a case, or ask them if they have a special "rewards and discounts program". This will also save you the time and trouble of shopping around. Do make sure you're comfortable with that business first, and that you've checked references prior to committing yourself to any one bridal gown shop, or tuxedo shop.

3. Hire two limos instead of one. This may sound silly, but many couples find out the hard way that hiring just one limo for the entire day, can often run into more mony than simply hiring two. If you hire a limo company simply to pick you up and drop you off prior to the ceremony, let them leave, and pay for another limo to come back and pick you up after the ceremony and take you to the reception, you don't have to pay for the waiting period in between. You can save a lot of money simply by not paying for a limo to sit and wait for your ceremony to be over, (especially if it's a Catholic Mass).

5. When it comes to flowers, you really do want to go with a reputable florist in your area, however you may want to ask your florist about going with real flowers on the arrangements that are most important to you, and consider going with silk on the arrangements that guests will only see from far away. Ask your florist about rentals. Most guests will only look and not touch. In my experience in the wedding business, silk is getting better in quality, and is very hard to distinguish even at a close distance. Remember appearance is what matters most, and I've been to some beautifully decorated weddings that were mostly silk, and the guests commented only on the wonderful appearance of the decor, and usually they did not attempt to touch or smell. In some cases two couples getting married in the same location (one after the other) can share the costs of the floral baskets, isle flowers, etc., and save money. Many catholic churches do several ceremonies in a day (back to back), and this may be one case in which shared floral arrangement costs may work out perfectly. Speak to the people in charge at your ceremony location and ask them to help you contact other couples using their facility to discuss this possibility of sharing floral decor and costs for back to back weddings.

6. When it comes to the location of your ceremony and/or reception, pick a location, church, hall, garden etc. that has beautiful architecture, or greenery already. This will save you the need of doing much decorating. If your wedding location of choice is already beautiful, then you've got little decorating to do.

7. Save money on wedding photography (and videography) by hiring a better photographer to do less work ~ Rather than selecting a lower priced photographer and ordering a huge photo package. Basically, , go with a photographer that is trusted and reputable, , and simply order a smaller package. More images can always be purchased at a later date. Don't risk your memories by simply going with the cheapest in town.

8. The date you choose can come with a price tag. Prime dates usually in the early spring, and summer months and always on a Saturday come at a more hefty price with most vendors. If you've got your sights set on a particular wedding vendor for your wedding day, always check their availabiltiy for your date first. Prime dates (usually Saturdays) fill up quite fast with vendors who are in demand. If you put off hiring the vendor of your choice too long, it's a good possibility you'll not be able to hire them for your date. You can always meet with a professional and ask him or her if they have special rates for "off days" meaning any day of the week other than Sat. They may or may not, but it is quite common for wedding vendors to have different rates for days other than Sat. Of course there are pros and cons, but if you're not planning a large wedding (over 150 guests) this could work out quite well for you.

9. Don't get carried away with your guest list. Keep it limited to close relatives and friends. To avoid unexpected guests, be sure to make it clear in your invitations that seating is limited to names listed. If you want an adult only wedding (no children are going to be there), don't feel apologetic for making that clear in your invitations either. Your true friends and caring family will make other arrangements for their children, and will refrain from extending extra invitations themselves.

10. Consider making your own invitations (and avoid spelling errors, which can cost you via re-orders), and if you don't have the time to do so, consider ordering your invitations online. There are several reliable online wedding invitation businesses. Be sure no matter where you decide to go to get your invitations that you check, re-check, and triple check your wording, date, addresses etc. It's quite common for a bride to go alone and order her invitations, and although she may check her wording, and spelling, she may have too much on her mind and simply overlook something minor. It's a good idea to have a second, or even third person go over the wording, dates, times, addresses etc.

4. Consider making some of your decorations yourself. Check your local party supply, and ask a clerk for ideas and tips. You'll be amazed at how much money you will save, and you just might find it a fun thing to do. Have a special day set aside when you, your relatives, and friends can get together and make center pieces, party favors, etc. Using candy as part of wedding favors is always a treat for your guests, and if you buy candy in bulk you'll save money.

Wedding Cakes Galore!

Wedding Cakes Galore!

By: Amy Spade

Wedding cakes can be the symbol of unity and the beginning of fun at a wedding reception. Images of a bride and groom smashing a piece in to each other’s face are not necessary.

Going local

One of the easiest ways to pick a wedding cake is to go to your local bakery. Better yet, you can go to the bakery in the town where you will be married. When you go with an out-of-town wedding cake, you may not be able to access them quickly in an emergency.

Being close to the bakery helps you if you have any questions or concerns as the wedding gets nearer. You may want to choose a larger style or a smaller one, depending on the responses to your invitations. In fact, smaller bakeries can be more flexible than the larger, more impressive ones.

Since you won’t be competing with hundreds of other couples, you have a better chance of getting personal service too.

The size matters

Although the baker that you have selected will be helping you with a size that is appropriate for your guest list, you may also want to consider a few other things.

A larger cake style is more impressive in pictures at the cake-cutting ceremony. You may want to choose separate tiers or just multiple ones to give the cake a better height so it’s not hiding behind you and your spouse.

The size is also a consideration when choosing the flavor. One of the newer trends is to have particular flavours for each tier. So if you want to have more flavours, you’re going to need more tiers, and an overall larger cake.

And don’t forget to save the top tier for you and your spouse to eat on your first anniversary. It’s a really a sweet tradition.

A different idea

If you’re still interested in having multiple flavors, but not a larger cake, you can try separate cakes for each table. Some couples have opted for this as they can provide different flavors, but also guests may move from table to table to try other flavors—and in so doing, create more conversations and relative interaction.

Your wedding cake can be as simple or as elaborate as you choose. If your budget is a concern, then you may want to keep in mind that at the end of the night, you will be eating it and that no one will worry about how expensive it was.
