This is the day you’ve been waiting for your entire life; the dress is picked out, the band is booked, and everyone has sent in their RSVP. There’s only one thing left to worry about…
Your appearance is one of the most important details of your magical wedding day and with all the planning, calling, tasting, and picking, you might find it difficult to find the time for your own preparations. Luckily, this simple primping schedule will help you find the time you need to look your best.
Everyone knows a good tan makes us appear more toned and healthy. It also makes a white dress and a white smile pop. That’s why you should begin building up a tan as early as five weeks before your wedding date. This gives you over a month to gradually deepen your skin tone without causing any burns. Don’t forget to moisturize before and after each tanning session. Or go the natural route and use and organic self-tanner to gradually build up a golden sun kissed colour. A product we love is Lavera’s Organic Self-Tanning Lotion €15.89 at most health stores.
Smooth is sexy in this day and age, so make a hair removal appointment at four weeks until the wedding. This will allow your skin time to heal, and any discomfort or itchiness will subside in time for your huge day. Waxing is the preferred hair-removal method; the process is speedy and the results last up to two months. You can have virtually any part of your body waxed so feel free to splurge on an all-over waxing.
Three weeks before your wedding, focus on hair. Take a day to go to your favorite salon. Get a cut and color, or at least nix your dead ends. When you arrive to your home, soak your hair overnight in warm coconut oil. Coconut oil is an all-natural miracle oil that will tame frizzy locks, strengthen weak or brittle hair, create a healthy sheen, and the best part is that it’s inexpensive and smells like a day at the beach.
Make a facial appointment two weeks before the big day. Chemical peels are a great way to slough off dead skin cells, but they can cause redness. That’s why it is very important to give your skin some time to calm down before the ceremony. Your fresh, glowing skin will have all eyes on you. At home, raw sugar and olive oil make a great all-over scrub for touchable, supple legs.
The nails make the outfit, and classy nails will complete your wedding day look. French heart tips are edgy and flirty, classic french tips are oh-so classy, and a nude or clear polish says you’re confident with your own natural beauty. Make the appointment for your nails one week ahead of time so you don’t have to feel rushed on decision making concerning nail colors, lengths, and styles.
Your day is almost here, and you deserve for people to know just how stunning you really are. Drop their jaws at your ceremony by following this plan. You (and your new partner) will be thrilled that you did.
Wedding hair vines are very on trend this year, but if you are asking yourself “What’s a wedding hair vine?”, let us explain. Wedding hair vines are long, flexible head pieces made on thin twisted wire that can be shaped to any design required to suit your hairstyle. Wedding hair vines generally don’t have any combs attached to them and can easily be pinned into your hair wherever needed. This gives them the flexibility to be worn with many different hairstyles.
So, how should you wear your wedding hair vine...
First, decide on how you will be wearing your hair; will you be wearing your hair down, in a long loose braid? Hair vines also look fantastic in half up half down hairstyles. Simply secure into the section of your hair that is pinned up, and then gentle curve down through your loose waves. If you are wearing your hair in a loose plait, the hair vine can simply be plaited into your hair as it is done.
As we mentioned hair vines are a very big trend for this year and here are our top selling wedding hair vines for 2020 so far...

Pearls are very often a popular wedding day gift for a bride, but why are pearls associated with weddings, you may be thinking!
Thanks to their fabulous shimmering iridescence, these organic little gems have always been highly prized throughout history, in fact, Cleopatra is said to have dissolved a pearl in a glass of wine before drinking it, simply to show Marc Antony that she could consume the wealth of an entire country in just one meal, and the ancient Greeks associated the pearl with love, marriage, and marital harmony. During the crusades knights wore pearls on the battlefield, believing they held magic powers that would protect them from harm. In the 1500s pearls were so highly regarded that countries across Europe passed laws forbidding anyone apart from nobility to wear them. And even to this day, they are still a popular choice for royalty, especially at weddings. Queen Elizabeth II wore them at her wedding and over in the USA, Jacqueline Bouvier wore a strand the day she became Mrs Kennedy, which was almost royalty.
