    Head to Toe Wedding Beauty Preparation

    The big day is approaching, all the preparations have been made, the church booked, the flowers arranged, the wedding breakfast menu planned – but what about you? You to look the best that you have ever looked, but your pre-wedding preparation cannot be left to the last minute. Today we have just a few wedding beauty tips that will ensure you are in the zone with head to toe wedding beauty preparation.

    Head to Toe Wedding Beauty Preparation

    The face

    Nothing is more beautiful than great looking skin so your wedding day preparation needs to start with your face. There are no magic pills that will guarantee you a flawless, peaches and cream complexion on the morning of the wedding. The best thing you can do is establish a daily cleansing regime at least two to three weeks before the big day. Whatever treatments you take, ensure that your skin has the best chance by keeping it hydrated and drinking plenty of water.

    The body

    The rest of your body needs to be in pristine condition, too. Refresh your body by exfoliating two to three times a week with a gentle body brush or mitt, moisturize daily with a body lotion or cream. I have discovered a fab body lotion, Cuderm by Synergy Biologics. A highly effective, lightweight, hypoallergenic formulation that is clinically proven to help moisturise and protect all skin types but is particularly suitable for dry or sensitive skin. Believe me, when I read that I was sceptical.

    I have ridiculously sensitive skin, which is dry and itchy if i don’t use a body lotion, and lumpy and itchy if I use the wrong body lotion. I tried Cuderm for a couple of weeks and was delighted. My skin was moisturised (no lumps or itch), and looked fab, with a soft healthy sheen. An absolute must for a bride to be, or for every day use. And with a recommended retail price of £7.69 it is an absolute steal. I’m definitely going to try the other products int eh range, including their gel wash and hand cream.

    Hair

    Hair puts up with a lot of rough use and if it isn’t looked after correctly. It can look brittle and dull thanks to overuse of products and hot styling tools such as straighteners. Include Vitamin B in your diet to start repairing your hair from the inside, and use hair masks and scalp treatments rubbed well into your head to repair it from the outside. Massage will stimulate your scalp and release essential oils into the hair shaft. Have your hair cut a few days before your wedding to get rid of split ends and have a trial run of your wedding hairdo with your hairdresser so there are no last minute bad hair days.

    Nails

    Do not ruin your look by having ugly nails. If your nails are bitten or break easily, consider fake nails for your wedding. Have these applied professionally by a nail expert. Stick-on nails that you have purchased from a drugstore will not be robust enough for the wedding day and will fall off, leaving you with mismatched hands. Opt for a French manicure rather than coloured polish. It looks more elegant and will complement rather than contrast with your dress.

    There is so much for a couple to do before they marry that it can be difficult to remember that it is your big day. Make the most of it and enjoy it to the full by making sure you feel your best.

    Unique Gift Ideas for your bride on your wedding day

    Your wedding date is near. Are you still confused about what to get for your bride? You have been exchanging gifts for a while and still don’t know what the perfect gift for your partner should be, right? This is perfectly normal as wedding day gift should make your lovely bride feel the luckiest and happiest. So today we are looking at unique gift ideas for your bride on your wedding day.

    Unique Gift Ideas for your bride on your wedding day

     Personalised Jewellery

    A good piece of jewellery is a women’s best friend. As cliché as it sounds, a unique piece of jewellery will surely bring a smile to your partner’s face. While buying it, keep the wedding dress in mind and what would complement it it. We know the bride would probably have selected her jewellery already, so maybe chose something different she can add to what she wears on the day.

    The best option would be to go for an engraved piece with your and hers name on it or a word that perfectly describes your relationship. Personalised jewellery will work better than diamonds; you can trust us on that.

    Some flowers with a promise

    Budget isn’t usually an issue when you want to do something special for your loved ones. During the wedding day, give her a flower every hour until the day ends. With each flower, promise her one thing that you would do for her in this new journey. For this, you don’t have to go on searching from store to store; you can easily get wholesale flowers online.

    For instance, before the vows give her a rose and promise her that you would always be there for her during important moments. Or, during the after party give her a lily promising that you will always keep things interesting in the relationship.

    Wedding Traditions That You Simply Cannot Ignore

    Weddings anywhere around the world mean celebrations and happiness. This ceremony is not just about having fun and getting blessings from your near and dear ones. n every culture, at every corner of the world, there are specific traditions that everyone has to comply to. These traditions, which are now considered irrelevant, actually have a deep meaning seated in them. They have been a part of the culture for ages. In our time when it is difficult to grab a meal leisurely, many people consider that following these traditions will be nothing but a waste of time.

    Even though we have bid adieu to quite a few old traditions but there are still some of them whom we cannot ignore even in the modern-day weddings. Considering the meaning associated with these traditions, it is actually them that make a wedding more than any regular party. Let us see what all traditions have still managed to preserve themselves in the modern times.

    The stag party or the hen party

    The first and the foremost are the stag parties and the hen do. this one tradition has survived since a very long time and is still going strong. Stag parties and hen parties are probably the one tradition about which everyone is the most excited. Spending a gala time with their best friends, is something no groom or bride will ever bride. Now a day, these parties are not just restricted to a bar or a spa session, but people have begun going out on lavish trips before they finally enter their nuptial bond. These parties not only are meant for absolute fun, but the memories created in them are priceless.

    Wedding cake and wine

    This one is also still a compulsion in all the weddings. You remember the ‘purple wedding’ of King Geoffrey where he cuts the pie with his sword! It might be possible that having the wedding cake tradition is a modification to that since people like cakes more. After the wedding ceremony is over, the newly wed groom and the bride are supposed to cut the cake that symbolises their beginning in their marital bliss. From having a simple single layered cake to having a multi storey, fancy cake, anything is available in the market and you may choose it according to your budget and like.

    Wedding veil and the wedding dress

    The veil is an integral part of the bride’s dress. In the earlier times the bride’s face used to be covered with a veil to ward of evils and also it was considered to bring bad luck for the couple if the groom sees his bride’s face before the ceremony. Contemporarily, a wedding veil is probably considered just an inclusion in the gown to make it more beautiful. But people do still follow the tradition of having a veil.

    The wedding bouquet

    It is a long living tradition that the bride must carry a bouquet with her when she walks towards the altar for her ceremony. Later on, the bride is asked to throw the bouquet and whoever catches it, is considered the next one to get hitched. Well, maybe people did believe it in the olden times, but today probably it is only meant for fun in the wedding.

    Weddings all over the world are comprised of endless traditions that reflect our culture and beliefs. While we have lost most of them, the few of these traditions that have managed to stand through the test of time must not be ignored and incorporated in the wedding, even if only to have some more fun during the celebrations.

    Having an Unforgettable Wedding in Gozo the Little Sister Island of Malta

    Gozo is an island of around 26 square miles off the northwest coast of Malta. It is easily accessible by boat from that island. Gozo has a more rural character than Malta but is equally known for its glorious climate and golden beaches. These are just two reasons that make this little sister island of Malta an ideal place for an unforgettable wedding.

It’s a perfect location for weddings large and small. You’ll be able to select from live bands or DJs, high quality florists, superb photographers, cake makers and much more. The fact is that Gozo is designed with weddings in mind, so that many of the island’s businesses are related to the wedding industry.

The island’s five-star hotels allow you to honeymoon in luxury. There are also superior quality villas and restored farmhouses, full of Gozitan charm to consider.

    Alternative Wedding Breakfast Feasts

    For any wedding, the food is an important element. You want your guests to be well looked after, and to go home happy and full of great-tasting food.

    When it comes to wedding breakfasts, there is far more choice than there used to be. Most venues are more than happy to be flexible which means you can adapt the food that you choose to better serve the tastes of you and your guests. Here are a few, slightly different approaches you could take:

    Alternative Wedding Breakfast Feasts

    Serve a hog roast

    Modern Hog Roast Machines are quite compact and can potentially be used indoors as well as outdoors. Importantly, you can cook far more than just whole hogs. The latest spit roasters can be used for beef or lamb joints as well as for gammon, whole turkeys, and chickens. Most people love the succulent, tasty meat that this style of cooking produces.

    Once cooked, everything can be served in a variety of ways. For a sit-down event, serving the meat sliced with a range of vegetables, sauces or gravy is a great approach. For a more casual wedding breakfast, the meat can be pulled from the bone and served in bread rolls or as part of a help-yourself-buffet.

    Hire some street vendors

    Another option for casual events is to invite a few of your favorite street vendors to set up their stalls and feed your guests. This is a great way to give everyone plenty of choice and ensure that you cater for all dietary needs.

    Do the catering yourself

    If you are on a tight budget and have a large enough home or garden, you could feed your guests yourself. With this option, you need to be organized and serve food that can be prepared well ahead of time. If you want to investigate this possibility this article is well worth reading. It is written by a couple who actually did their own wedding breakfast catering, so is full of practical advice.

    Serve up a luxurious garden party tea

    Garden party food usually goes down well. Think tasty sandwiches with the crusts cut off, trays of finger foods and miniature cakes. You need to serve it all on proper plates with nice cutlery and luxury drinks to make this style of food special enough for your wedding day.

    Opt for a beach party

    In some places, it is possible to hold your party on a beach. This can be a really special venue and opens up the opportunity for you to serve freshly barbecued fish and seafood. It is usually best to hire a private beach for this type of wedding reception. If you do choose this option, be sure to check whether you need a license.

    A sumptuous buffet

    Last, but by no means least, is a tasty buffet. This is perhaps the best way to make sure everyone gets to enjoy a good selection of food. Be sure to pay special attention to your elderly or infirm guests. You want them to be able to enjoy as much choice as everyone else. Usually, the other people on their table will automatically look after them. But, it is also wise to have a quiet word with someone on the table to make sure they are ready to step in and give them a hand, just in case.
