A wedding day is the most beautiful day in one’s life. It is a perfect time to express your personality through your creative ideas. It is a day when you show love to your family and friends for being part of your Big Day.

So, to create that special memory for a lifetime, special effort must be put to make the dining an experience.

In some ways, your wedding reception is almost more important than the actual ceremony. I know, I know, your ceremony is vitally important as it’s the moment when you properly get married. But, the reception is normally the part of a wedding that people remember the most – at least from the guests perspective!
As a result, you need to ensure yours is memorable and gets people talking for years to come. You want to be that one wedding people still reminisce about in five years time. To do this, you need to nail down the cornerstones of a good wedding reception.
We’re going to let you in on a secret ladies; it’s not only men who can propose. Shocking, isn’t it? But alas, there it is. No longer do ladies have to wait until the leap year to pop the question. More often, women are taking the helm and getting the job done. In fact, about three-fourths of Americans say it would be okay for ladies to do the proposing.

Planning a wedding is notoriously stressful. If you have any kind of experience at all in planning anyone’s wedding day, you will know that there is always so much more to do than you initially believe. This is a common source of frustration, particularly for the bride and groom, but there are ways to alleviate the whole worry. One of the most sensible things you can do in the last few days in the run-up to the wedding is to carry out a last-minute check. There are a few essential items which should be double-checked at this last juncture.
However you are going to be arriving at your wedding, you absolutely need to make sure that it is definitely all arranged. If you are getting a taxi, then double-check with the taxi company that all is well. Similarly, if you are going for something more extravagant like a horse-and-carriage, be sure to specify the exact time that you need them to arrive. It might even be worth giving them a slightly early time. As the bride, you are welcome to be a little late on your wedding day – but you will probably find that you just want to get to the venue in good time anyway. Also be sure to check the transportation of other guests and the wedding party, if relevant to your day.
It goes without saying that you will want to document the day, so you should be sure to double-check that the photographer is definitely still on board. This is one of the most commonly overlooked parts of weddings, so you should make sure to do this early on in the last few days. It’s also worth shopping around a little earlier for a photographer who you feel you can genuinely trust. Having that trust will make a world of difference on the day, and it will be one less thing you need to be stressed about. Remember that you want the photographer to capture the whole day, so get them to arrive as early as possible.
If you still have money owed to any of the vendors or other professionals, then it might be worth paying ahead of time before the day itself. If you get the financial concerns out-of-the-way early, then you don’t have to spend time on the day itself worrying about money. Especially when that is the last thing you want to be thinking about as you get married! Pay upfront, and you can always seek a refund if someone doesn’t show or the service is not what you expected.
A great tip is to get your luggage taken in early so that you don’t even need to think about it on your big day. Doing this will save you a surprising amount of stress, and it will be luggage weight off your back in more ways than one. This is the ideal task to gift to a bridesmaid or close friend, so be sure to make use of them in that respect!

- Planning the perfect wedding isn’t exactly easy, so most brides are only too happy to get some sound advice from people who’ve been there before.

I’m here to change that. Here are some wedding planning tips and tricks you really do need to know:
It’s impossible to decide what to do with your hair on the best of days, let alone when a special occasion is approaching. If it’s your wedding day, your prom, or you’re just celebrating a big achievement, you want to do something special to your hair, but you’re not always prepared to deal with any long-term changes. If you want to give your hair a makeover for just one night, here are a few temporary solutions for you to explore.
Temporary short hair
Normally, you love having luxuriously long hair, and you’ve been very patient waiting for it to grow to the desired length. The last thing you want is to cut it, but sometimes you think an outfit would look better with shorter hair, or you just want it out of the way during a heatwave. Fortunately, you can achieve this look without trimming a single hair. The faux bob is an easy way to style your hair short, and no scissors need to get involved. At most, you’ll only need to search the house for every hairpin you own.
Temporary long hair
Whether you’re happy having short hair, or you’re impatiently waiting for it to grow, sometimes it’s nice to have a night of showing off your long shiny hair. This temporary miracle is easily achieved with clip in hair extensions, which are cheaper and less time consuming than getting a weave. There are extensions to suit every color, and style of hair, so all you have to do is style it the way you want. On the other hand, what’s the point in having long hair for a night if you’re not going to let it flow free?
Perhaps you’re usually very conservative with your hair color; if you ever think about dying it, you always stick with something close to your natural shade. However, if you’re going to a concert, a festival, or you have an epic Halloween costume in mind, then it might be the right time to get a little crazy with your hair color. If you don’t want to commit to having blue hair, however, then there are a few solutions. You could try colored hairspray so you can wash it out later, or use semi-permanent hair color to decide if you want to make the look permanent later.
Temporary big hair
Despite all the volumizing hair products you use, it feels like you keep walking a fine line between flat hair, or a frizzy lion’s mane. Some stylists recommend sticking with short hair or getting a blunt trim to make your hair look like it has more volume, but if you’re hoping for a memorable style for a special occasion then there are a few sneaky ways to add volume to your hair. Dry shampoo, back brushing, and plenty of hairspray at the roots will keep your hair elevated for the duration of the evening. It might also help to curl the roots for a little extra bounce.
In the run-up to your wedding, you’ve got a lot to do. By now, you should have the foundation of your day planned out, including everything from the venue to the entertainment. But even when you have some of the bigger plans in place, there’s always a few things that can crop up before the big day arrives. One of those that you always need to remember is your beauty preparations. Because not only do you want to look good when you get married, you’re going to want your prep to last for the honeymoon too. So, here are a few steps you can prioritize to tackle both birds with one stone.
First of all, you might like to think about getting a facial or a few. You’re going to want to make sure that your skin is prepped and looking as good as it can before you walk down that aisle. Although you may not be able to control stress that leads you to break out, a course of facials should keep your skin looking great. And because you need a great base for your makeup, it should be a non-negotiable prep step.
Makeup Trial before the Big Day
Then, you’re also going to want to make sure that you get your makeup trial scheduled in. Not everyone likes to have their makeup done by someone else, so it’s important that you can find a person that you’re happy with. It may take you a while to find the right makeup artist, so you need to schedule in trials. That way, you can be confident that you’ve made the right choice and that you can agree on the look you want.
After makeup, you’ve also got your hair to plan too. This may be something that you do with your bridesmaids to make sure that you all have hairstyles that work with your dresses and the style of the wedding. For this, you may want to get some tape in hair extensions that can give you more length or volume to style with. You should also look for lots of different inspiration online so you can determine whether you want your hair up or down, straight or curly, or with any accessories.
Even if you don’t usually tan, you may want to think about getting a little glow before the big day. It can help you to look healthy and give your skin a radiant boost too. There are lots of different pre-wedding tanning options that you could consider, so you need to decide on a style that you’ll be most comfortable with, and a color that feels most natural to you too.
And of course, you’re going to want to get your nails seen to. Every bride wants to have a beautiful manicure on her big day. Whether you choose to go with something natural or a statement color, be sure to book in as close to your wedding as possible. Plus, you may want to go for a pedicure too, especially for your honeymoon.
