Choosing your dress is one of the biggest decisions in your life- make sure you choose the right one!

 

First things first, most girls have an idea as to what dress they thing they will be getting married in on their big day. You need to take a number of things into account prior to even stepping foot into the the dress shop;

  • Consider your body shape – choose the dress that helps accentuate your best features,
  • Think about any color schemes that you have in mind for the big day
  • Ensure that you go to as many dress shops as possible, this will help you compare not only prices but potentially different designers/styles.

Body types and dresses

 

It is exceptionally important to ensure that you choose the correct dress for your body type. Dresses may look lovely on a mannequin but that doesn’t necessarily translate into the dress of your dreams below are a few ideas for body types to dress styles to help avoid wedding dress fails;

 

Pear figure – narrow mid section which then flares out which helps accentuate the narrowness of the midsection and takes the eyes away from the hips

Petite figure- Sheath and close fitting dresses help accentuate your curves and makes the illusion of stretching your silhouette vertically.

Hourglass figure – fitted bodices work best on this shape as this helps show off your curves.

 

 

Shopping for the “one”

When shopping for your perfect dress there are number of considerations you must take into account prior to booking your appointments. You must take a close of your girls to come with you to not only help you keep on task but also help drink all that Prosecco! You must also try and book as early in the day as possible, as this will help avoid clashes with other brides – nobody wants a Bridezilla in their shop. You must also think about stylists, not every shop will have Vera Wang on the hangers, you have to consider your appointments accordingly.

 

Finally the best advice is to go and have fun! Dress shopping is something you and your friends and close family can all get involved in and they will definitely let you know if it is the right one or not as soon as you try it on. This is the one day where everything is about you – so make a statement!

Bridal hair- How to look Fabulous….

If there is one thing that I reiterate to all my girly friends is that you have to prepare, prepare and doubly prepare in the lead up to the big day, you don’t want frayed hair or ghastly split ends .On a wedding day the bride and the groom should look perfect, as if they`ve stepped out from a fairy tale.  Every little detail is extremely important when your big day is approaching, but don’t forget: you need to care about your hair a few months before your wedding date. If you follow our advice, you are going to be the dream bride of every hairdresser and your hairdo is gonna be gorgeous.

First of all, let your hair grow as long as you can and use treatments, moisturizing products suitable your hair type in order to have healthy and shining hair. Schedule your trims around eight or nine weeks and your hair will grow rapidly. You can prevent split ends with cutting them on a regular basis and also using plenty of conditioner while showering. Besides, there are several practices which are good to know, for example brush your hair before washing, not to brush to much while it is wet or lay off the heat styling tools.

Don’t underestimate the importance of the trial sessions. It means you have to book at least one day before the wedding and tell your plans to the professional who can help you can figure out the appropriate hairdo . There are many possibilities you need to decide on your trial appointment on like the colour, the style, the accessories, the length, if you want flower in it or not. We suggest you  gather and take photos of styles you like, ideas you would like to try and also be aware what kind of makeup you will wear, because everything needs to be in harmony. When you are at your stylist, keep an open mind about recommendations but ensure that you end up with something you really want.

Watch the ingredients of the products, most of them contain silicone and they do more harm than help. If you used too much silicon-heavy material on your hair you can solve the problem with using a clarifying shampoo and/or conditioner in the previous weeks. Thanks to the newer formulas you can buy silicon-free cleaning, conditioning and styling goods as well.

Beside the external cures the significance of the proper nutrition and the avoidance of extreme diets are indisputable. Get the essential vitamins and nutrients from the vegetables and fruits and consult with your dermatologist about the supplements which can cause noticeable improvement on your head.

If you colour or dye your hair, you have to make sure that you choose the best experienced hairdresser, and not to cut corners with your hair, because wedding photos and video are taken forever and you don`t wanna be a colourless angel on them. Refresh your colour or ask for highlights to reach the best texture and a natural effect. Maybe some of you are enough brave to make extreme changes in your colour, but leave it for later. Ensure that you avoid dying dark hair a few  days before your wedding, as this can leave marks on your forehead and neck. As our last recommendation, we are finding more and more of our brides are now going for loose and natural look, complicated buns are so not in right now.

If you take this advice, you will have hair that Rapunzel would envy on your wedding day.
