Every little girl knows what her perfect wedding looks like. As they grow up, this picture changes, but the staples are always the same: the perfect dress, the most romantic venue, tons of fragrant flowers, something blue…

Oh, yes, and their soulmate waiting at the altar.

But once it’s time for the actual planning to start, things can get overwhelming. So we give you a couple of tips that will help you get organized and minimize the stress. Because no wedding is perfect without a happy bride!

It goes without saying that you want to look your best on the big day, but the possibility of something going wrong with your makeup is a real one. That’s just Murphy for you. So you want to minimize the risk as much as possible.

One of the best ways to make sure your makeup look is on point for your wedding day is getting the permanent kind. Permanent makeup has been a huge trend among brides, because it’s a great way to instantly improve your look, and get long-lasting results.Microblading eyebrows for special occasions or getting permanent eyeliner is very popular, as it abolishes the stress of asymmetrical eye makeup, and there’s no chance of running or smudging, which is inevitable with all the dancing throughout the day.

Just make sure you get permanent makeup early enough for your skin to heal completely before the big day. It takes 6-8 weeks for the healing period to end, and then it’s usually time for a top up appointment, which takes some time to heal, too. So if you’re considering getting permanent makeup, do it at least a couple of months before the wedding.

Choose a Theme

Choosing a theme makes planning so much easier, as it gives you a starting point and determines the style of, well, everything, from the design of the invitations to bridesmaids’ dresses.

If you have no theme in mind, go througha list of wedding themes, choose one that best suits your personality and taste, and start planning from there. This makes decision making so much easier – just ask yourself Does this tablecloth color match my theme? 

Plus, having a theme makes your wedding unique. Everyone’s been to a thousand basic, elegant receptions, but Roaring 20s themed one? Everyone’s sure to remember that.

Male Beauty – The Groom Deserves a Confidence Boost, Too

It seems that all women turn to bridezillas at least a little bit once the planning starts. Of course, the bride is the one everyone’s gonna be looking at, but the groom also deserves some attention.

Men have insecurities too, so why not treat your future husband to a male beauty treatment that will give him a confidence boost?

Most men don’t wear makeup, but there are still things they can do to improve their look and enhance their features. Eyebrow grooming is a must, as it will make your man look neat and elegant (microblading works for guys, too! How about making a couple’s appointment with your local artist?). 

Botox for men, has also been very popular in the last few years, as men have started to become more interested in anti-aging. Men may be reluctant to get permanent work done, but if you find an experienced professional and explain what exactly it is you want, no one will be able to tell you’ve had any work done at all. They’ll just notice a refreshment!

Photos are Forever

So once everything has been set up, the final step is finding the best professional photographer available. Photographs of your special day are something you’ll cherish for the rest of your life, so you want them to turn out as fabulous as possible. 

There are many, many wedding photographers out there, so choosing the best one might get confusing. The best strategy is to start by looking through their portfolio – if they have little or no prior work on their website or social media, that’s a red flag. 

Another key factor is choosing the perfect spot for a photo session. This can be somewhere on the venue, or elsewhere in the area, like a forest or a fancy spot in town. It might be a good idea to get the official newlywed photos taken a few days before the big day, as long as you don’t mind your future spouse seeing your dress. 

To Wrap It Up

There are many tricks that will allow you to enjoy your wedding planning, as well as your actual reception. From little improvements to your look, to getting that one perfect photo, the most important thing to remember is to have fun and enjoy the process. At the end of the day, you’re marrying your soulmate and that’s the only thing that matters!
