    From classic to quirky. Top types of wedding transport

    So today I have a little post about wedding transportation to share with you. if you want to arrive at your wedding in style it is time to think how? Will it be a classic car? A quirky stretch limo? Fairytale horse and carriage? Something completely and utterly bonkers? Unadulterated luxury? Today’s post as a bit of everything.

    From classic to quirky. Top ten types of wedding transport

    Bride and bridesmaid transport

    A few things to consider:-

    How big is your dress and how big is the inside of your dream car? This needs to be checked. If you have a HUGE dress, the last thing you want is for it to be creased and crushed after being squeezed into a tiny back seat.

    Horse and carriage

    If you are opting for an open top car or horse and carriage, does the roof come down quickly if the weather is not so hot? And if the roof does come down, will you be stooping for the entire duration of the journey?

    You may want a horse and carriage but factor in the inordinate amount of extra time that journey will take. If there is some distance to travel, this option just isn’t practical. If you have set your heart on this, why not just start the journey in a car and transfer to the carriage nearer the wedding venue?

    Stretch limo

    Got lots of bridesmaids? Maybe a stretch limo is an option. One car-lots of room and an injection of glamour too.

    Whatever mode you consider, make sure you shop around and get recommendations. You can even use a well known trade directory and find local wedding car hire services to give you a helping hand.

    Groom and groomsmen

    Very often the men’s transport to a wedding is a bit of an afterthought. Taxis or family and friends usually bear the brunt of the responsibility, but why not make their journey special too? You could opt for a stretch limo aswell and then at least the bridesmaids and groomsmen have a way to get the wedding venue after the service, whilst the bride and groom hijack the other limo.

    You can hire a classic sports car for the day or half day. What better way to arrive at your wedding than in a classic red Ferrari?

    Guest transportation

    Now usually guests can find their own way to your wedding, but if your venue is remote, or even a surprise, this is something to consider. Theree are some fab bus services, from limo buses to red London buses. If you are having a country themed wedding, why not see if you can hire tractors to transport guests?

    Specialist cars

    Now my sister and her husband both had Mini Coopers when they got married. They were members of the Mini fan Club and well….they were quite obsessed with Minis. So they chose to have as their wedding car a stretch Mini. It suited them perfectly and shows that there is a wedding car out there to suit everyone.

    So there you have it. How will you be getting to and from your wedding? Would love to hear from you. Bye for now, Jenny.

    Different Makeup Styles for Weddings

    Traditional Makeup Styles

    While most people aren’t going to want a return of the mid-twentieth century in other ways, the mid-twentieth century clothing styles and makeup styles have been making something of a comeback in recent years. These are styles that are going to allow people to look very classy and elegant without looking as if they are wearing too much makeup.

    Wearing some bright red lipstick, strong mascara, and smooth red blush is going to cause a lot of people to think about the 1950’s right away. Light blue eye shadow works well here as well. Thinning the eyebrows only adds to that effect, since natural eyebrows are ‘in’ these days, but heavily trained eyebrows were more popular in the past.

    Women in the 1950’s and 1960’s tended to put a lot of effort into their appearance, but they didn’t look as if they were wearing an extreme amount of makeup. The bright red lipstick and the bright eyes of 1950’s glamour can still work well in the context of a modern wedding. Some people might even decide to go back further in time for the same thing.

    Smoky Eyes

    Wearing some silvery eye shadow or darker eye shadow combined with heavy mascara can automatically make the eyes look really smoky. Combining these smoky eyes with nude lipstick or subtle foundation that evens out the complexion without adding any color can draw more attention to the eyes.

    wedding makeup

    For a lot of people, it’s the eye makeup that’s the most important. This is especially true for a wedding, where people are going to want to leave their lips free for the kissing part of the ceremony anyway. Smokey eyes can have a dramatic look without looking the least bit tawdry. They are classic in a way that is still very modern, and so a lot of people are going to prefer them for a fashionable modern wedding. People can find lots of great makeup styles at Makeupbyellia. Hiring a makeup artist on a wedding day can make all the difference in the world. Read more

    Choosing His and Hers Wedding Rings

    It’s time to choose your wedding rings. Are you going to opt for matching his and hers matching rings? Do you prefer to have individual styles? Is your husband-to-be not bothering with a ring at all?

    Even after making this decision there are more to come. Do you want platinum, gold, titanium, or something else? Do you want contemporary or vintage? Would you like precious stones set into your ring? Will your wedding band match your engagement ring?

    Today I am bringing not advice, just ideas on choosing his and hers wedding rings, so that you can see just some of the options available to you.

    If you want something a bit different, that maybe has a back story and some history behind it, then a vintage wedding ring may be for you. There are lots of specialist stockists or you can shop in vintage shops or online stores such as Etsy.

    Contemporary wedding rings

    You could do ultra modern with a contemporary wedding ring. Some designs are like mini modern pieces of art and are sure to be a talking point wherever you show it off.
