I spoke to lots of lovely brides at the Wedding Experience wedding fair at the Hop Farm last weekend. It got me thinking about the advice I have shared with brides over the busy summer bridal season and the advice I would have liked to be able to share with all of the brides to be I met!
In amongst all the stress of organsing your wedding, it's really important to find a pocket of time to take care of yourself, whether that means hiring a makeup artist and hairstylist for the day, or to help you to create a look that you will recreate on the day, or even if you are going it alone; here's five tips that should help you feel and look your best!
• Trials are essential! It may cost more money, it may seem unnecessary, but it is the only way to make sure you are working with the right people and you share the right visual plan for the day.
• Are you wearing white on your wedding day? Then plan your look wearing white! Colours influence each other and wearing the right tone will help you to visualise the complete look.
•Remember that you want to feel like you, but the best most empowered glowing happy version. This isn't everyday, this is the best day of your life and you should feel like you look that way! If that means wearing a different shade of lipstick or your hair up then go for it! Your hair and makeup look can be like your dress, sometimes you surprise yourself!
•Don't forget your body! When we get embarrassed, cold, or happy our ears often go red, and so do chests after a prosecco (or five). Pop some foundation over these areas, and a highlighter or body shimmer over high points and down the length of arms and legs so on camera everything matches.
• On the day have a kind helper carry your powder, lipstick, and concealer. This is all you should need to top up during the day so you look sassy all day and night!
