Times have changed and women are becoming more and more busy, and it is in these times when less complicated hairstyles are welcome. Knotted buns can also be a nice hair style if you’re attending either casual or formal occasions.

In order for a knotted bun hairstyle to look best it is very important to have healthy, shiny straight hair.  The shine of the straight hair will enhance the appearance of the knot, enhancing it’s interesting look. So if you’ve got no time for a nice hairstyle, try knotted bun. I’m sure, you’ll never go wrong.

On choosing wedding invitations

wedding-invitation-ideasOne of the most important parts of the wedding preparation is choosing wedding invitations. Of course, this will serve as your official wedding announcement and at the same time, wedding memorabilia! Thus, choosing the right wedding invitation is definitely necessary.

Firstly, your wedding invitation should be based on the theme. The colors of the invitation should be well matched to the theme of your choice. The guest can easily have an idea of the theme of your wedding by merely looking at the invitations. Also, these well-thought invitations will also give your guests an idea of the gifts to buy and the clothes to wear on your big day.

There are so many invitations that you can now choose from, there are invitations like message in a bottle, photograph, DVD, scroll, fan and a whole lot more. You may also check on invitations that we will be personally designing here at GIRLYANA.com soon. (I am really excited about this!)

Meanwhile, sending out your wedding invitations should be done not earlier than a month before the wedding and not later than two weeks before the wedding. Sending invitations too early could make people forget your wedding day (remember the law of recency!) and sending them out too late could cause conflicts with your guests’ schedules.

Steps in Organizing a Bridal Show

Organizing a bridal show is good way to connect with more reputable professionals in your area as well as to introduce your business to a wider variety of potential customers.For those who would like to organize bridal fair and show, here are some helpful steps for you:

  • Set a date, time and place for the event. You may do this early to make sure that there will be no conflict with venue and other concerns. Also, it is better to determine what events you will be holding on the bridal show. Will there be fashion shows? Raffle? Exhibits, etc.
  • Determine admission price and whether you will be giving door prizes, free admission or any other freebies to brides and grooms who register to come to the show. Also, determine vendor booth prices and what vendors would receive with their booth purchases like advertisement on your website, bridal leads lists, etc.
  • Advertise your show on popular bridal sites such as kasal.com. Also, contact bridal magazines, newsletters and websites in your area to see if they’ll advertise your event in their publication or on their website in exchange for a booth at your show or some other type of collateral.
  • Start calling local wedding professionals and tell them about your show. Give them all the details about WHO, WHERE, WHAT, WHEN, WHY, etc. Offer to send them information about your show via email and thank them for their time.
  • Search for sponsors to support your event. There are so many businesses that you could tie up with like Photo/video and catering services.
  • Continue to search for vendors and promote the show until the day before. Make sure that your staffs are in place and you have everything organized and all your vendors are happy, as well as your attendees.
  • And lastly, enjoy and have fun!

Tips on Applying Make Ups for Brides

bridal-makeup
On your wedding day, you definitely want to look perfect. Not only will all eyes be on you during the ceremony and after, there are also wedding pictures to worry about. So you would really want to have the best make up to be applied on your face. Before people will speculate on your wedding gowns, shoes and all, they would certainly look at you first with all your make up on. So here’s some tips that we could share our MUAs during the make up session or the wedding preparation. Remember, you make-up has to last through hours of tears, kisses, dancing, champagne drinking, and more.

  • A good way to ensure make-up stays put is to use both cream and powder versions of everything.
  • Spend time applying foundation. If you have an oily skin, always look for an oil-free foundation or one that says ‘non-comedogenic’ on the label.
  • For maximum staying power and glamour, go with a liquid liner, dot liquid liner between your lashes and smudge with a small brush to blend—the technique adds definition without hardness—’then cover liner with a matching powder eye shadow to set the look.
  • To keep the eyebrows up and up, once you’ve added color, comb your brows into place with a clear eyebrow gel or mascara-style brush spritzed with hair spray.
  • Eye shadow colours must suit the skin colour, so daring colours like blue and green must not be used for bride make ups. They tend to give a weird look to the face.
  • If you’ve applied liquid or cream foundation, start with a cream blush, dusting it with translucent powder, then brush on a powder blush.
  • To look naturally flushed—not clownish—choose a blush that’s the color of your chest, palms, or fingertips.
  • Smoothen a bit of foundation on the edges of the lips before adding any color, which also prevents feathering around fine lines.
  • Line and fill in your lips with pencil. Brush on your lipstick and blot with tissue, then reapply
  • .

  • Avoid wearing bright lip colors as they smudge the most. Some reds, for example, bleed a lot more than soft peaches and pinks. It’s just the pigment formulation.

And lastly, feel good. This is your day so take all those worries away!
