    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.

    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.

    All You Need in One Idyllic Location

    Gozo has everything you need for a perfect wedding. There is a plethora of specialist companies to help you plan and execute your wedding arrangements. 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. That means that they have the experience and expertise to ensure that your dream wedding goes without a hitch. You can then concentrate on relaxing and enjoying your big day in style.

    Perfect Photographs to Cherish Forever

    A wedding album will bring joy to you and your spouse for decades to come, especially when you have beautiful wedding photographs taken against truly stunning backdrops. That’s something that Gozo can guarantee. With more than 300 days of sunshine a year you won’t have to worry about dark clouds overhead as you might at a British wedding venue. You don’t have to go to the Caribbean for a winter wedding on the beach.

    Honeymoon in Style

    Whether you choose to combine your Gozo wedding with a honeymoon there, or select the island as a standalone honeymoon venue, it’s a choice you won’t regret. 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. There’s something for all budgets and to suit all tastes in Gozo.

    Gozo means ‘joy’, and once you’ve been married on the island you’ll understand why. It’s the perfect wedding backdrop that’s just a short flight away and ferry ride from airports across the United Kingdom. When you want a wedding that you’ll never forget, the golden sands and azure seas of Malta’s sister island take some beating.

    This year we get to celebrate the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as well as a third Royal baby, so it’s going to be quite a busy year. Many people like to keep small keepsakes as a reminder of these historic events. Items from the Queen’s Wedding to the Duke of Edinburgh and her Coronation are now collectables, as well as those marking Prince Charles nuptials to Princess Diana. The latest set of Royals are just as popular and items marking their special days will no doubt become collectable in the next few years.

    This particular collection has a clean contemporary design in monochrome black and white. There are no photographs, that can quickly date and there are a choice of practical items for every day use or the commemorative decorative items. My personal favourite item is the commemorative tea. Imagine brewing a cuppa whilst settling down to watch the Royal Wedding on the TV.

    Grab yourself a slice of history with Royal Wedding Commemorative Designs – Prince Harry & Meghan Markle. I know I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled on they day what will be this year’s wedding trends set by Harry and Meghan.

    52 memories for an unforgettable wedding experience

    Now I get a LOT of emails from companies with “innovative” wedding ideas and services. Some are not so original, some are downright weird and some are just inappropriate. Now recently i got an email about a fab idea from a Swiss based company 52 memories.

    The idea is based on a romantic wedding surprise tradition the founder of the company experienced in Germany myself and one that is virtually unheard of in the UK, as far as I know.

    52 memories for an unforgettable wedding experience

    For one year, 52memories will evoke the memories of the most special day in the life of two people – and makes this day unforgettable. Using the 52memories app, guests, family and friends design greeting cards with personal photos and congratulations for the wedding.

    The company then print these personal congratulations on high-quality postcards and send them to the address of the newly-weds every week during the first year of their marriage.
    So for 52 weeks, they will receive a surprise every week – on time, reliable, worldwide.

    Unique. Emotional. Tears of joy guaranteed.

    52 memories for an unforgettable wedding experience

    52memories have digitalised this idea because guests unfortunately forget to send cards after a couple of weeks… Imagine you choose the postcard to be send in week 45 ;).

    The cards are not “random postcard creatives” but designed with a self taken picture or selfie in the 52memories App.

    In the end, the guests just have to pick and save the date they want their personal card to be sent to the bridal couple.

    52memories print and ship them every week as soon as the time is right.

    I love this idea. It is such a personal and thoughtful idea. A way to banish those post wedding blues when you think all the fun of the wedding is over. you can actually prolong the whole experience for 12 months and  you never know what you are going to get. You might get something touching, a risque message from your best man, or a heartfelt message from a relative from overseas.

    Here is a short film explaining the service in a bit more detail.

    What do you think of this idea? I love it but would love to know what you think.
