    Wedding Planning – How to Plan Your Perfect Proposal

    A proposal of marriage is as important a moment as the wedding day itself. It’s the moment when you tell your partner that your love for them is so great that you want – no – need to spend the rest of your life with them. You want the perfect proposal so that it brings back cherished memories forever.

    Ultimately a great deal of planning needs to go into the wedding itself, but how much thought have you given to the other big day – the one where you propose?

    Unless you and your partner both love doing things on the spur of the moment, you’ll want to give a lot of thought to how you’ll do it. After all, it is a moment that you will both treasure and reminisce about for many years to come.

    The perfect proposal plan

     The secret to an amazing, memorable or perfect marriage proposal is all in the planning and for that, you’ll need to think about the most important factors – namely, the venue, the ring, music and words, family and friends. Sit down and think about what means the most to your partner and what would make the moment as special for them as it could possibly be.

    The venue

    If you’re stuck for ideas there are lots to choose from. Scotland, for example, has some of the most stunning locations in the world. Maybe you could return to the place where you had your first date, have a horse drawn carriage ride on a beautiful day, take a boat trip on a beautiful Scottish loch or around one of its many islands. How about a walk along a beach, where your partner finds your proposal as a message in a bottle or written in the sand?

    After a romantic meal is another time to propose, with the ring arriving with the pudding, or in a beautiful fairytale castle – guaranteed to put some real magic into your moment. And, if you’re a couple who like to keep active, maybe you could arrange a treasure hunt somewhere beautiful, with the ring as the final prize?

    Wedding Makeup Winter Makeup Tips

    So this time of year plays havoc with our skin. Central heating, wind, rain and cold. Urgh, our poor skin needs a lot of extra TLC to keep it in tip top condition. If you are planning a winter wedding, it is especially important to take care of your face and know which makeup styles suit this time of year.,

    So we have some top wedding makeup winter makeup tips from London College of Fashion trained Hair and Makeup Artist, Susie Boyland. Susie is a London College of Fashion trained Makeup and Hair Artist

    She loves working one-on-one with each of her brides to help them find a wedding day makeup look that’s beautifully true to them.

    As we have already said, our skin can take a real battering over the winter months. Coming in from the cold to a centrally heated house, office or shop can cause your skin to panic. Your makeup needs a great canvas to work on, so as the temperatures drop you need to take extra care of your skin, especially if you’re getting married this winter. Here’s our tips on remaining radiant and glowing:

    Use a gentle exfoliator as part of your beauty routine twice a week. If your skin is becoming sensitive or red, reduce the use to just once a week.

    Use a 50 pence piece sized dollop and smooth gently over your face. Let the particles touch your face gradually. Gently massage into the face, slowly and carefully, and let the scrub do its job. Go for an exfoliator that doesn’t have harsh looking beads in it. Try not to scrub away at your skin in short bursts; this will only cause damage and irritation.

    Moisturize your skin inside and out. Drink lots of water and moisturise your face daily. Opt for a simple water-based moisturiser as this will nourish dry areas, or go for a natural product such as It’s All About the Face Hydrating Face Cream by Pureza Beauty.  

    Lips can really suffer over the colder months, often becoming chapped and flaky. Use a soft, moist toothbrush to gently exfoliate  any dead skin away in in circular motions. Apply a good layer of lip balm to protect and moisturise them every day.

The aim for this look is to be well presented rather than over the top. Think Jennifer Aniston rather than Kim Kardashian! Start with a great foundation designed for a long day like Estee Lauder Doublewear; this will give your skin a flawless base from which to build on. 

    Wedding Makeup Winter Makeup Tips natural bridal makeup look for love me love my weddng Well groomed eyebrows and highlighted bone structure is the key to framing your face for a chic and sophisticated natural look. Use a powder shadow, like MAC’s Shroom, to add a subtle shimmer underneath your eyebrows, the cupids bow of the lip and along the tops of your cheek bones. Remember the key is a natural sleek look -it is easy to end up looking like a painted clown, so build the look up gradually and step back and look carefully between each step.

    Make your eyes the focus of your radiant snow queen look. Create an elegant smoky eye using golds, bronzes and browns with an eye shadow palette like Urban Decay Naked. Keep both your cheek and lip colours similar shades to your natural colourings. A pop of blusher on the apples of your cheeks and a touch of tint or balm to the lips adds a subtle amount of sheen without looking too overdone.

    So there you have it. Look after your skin and keep it subtle ladies 🙂

It doesn’t need to be anything too crazy, but a few days with some sun, sea and sand could be the perfect prep for a wedding. It’s the perfect excuse to get away. Everyone could work on their tan and get bronzed for the big day too. Of course there will be the obligatory glass of bubbly or cocktail to keep things going and all kind of exotic things to enjoy.
