How to look great on your wedding photos

Every bride wants to look her best on her wedding. It’s YOUR day. You need to love you photos and they will stay with you forever. I’ve put together a few tips to help you look amazing on your special day:


1. Meet with your photographer before the time. Get to know her / him. Being comfortable with your photographer is so important. Also chat with your photographer before the time about what you want. If both know what is expected, the day will go just perfect.


2. Practice your pose. Although you don’t want to look staged and artificial, you do have a picture in your mind what you want to do. Practice and see if what you have in your mind, actually looks the same in the mirror.


3. Enjoy yourself. Just enjoying your day and forgetting about the camera will show. You will get tired to smile the whole time if the smile is forced. Forget about what your guests are going at the reception and just be in the moment with your groom. Remember the day is about you and your love. The guests are there to celebrate with you.


4. Make sure you are happy with your make up. When you go for your make up trial, take photos. Ask a friend to take a photo that you can see what you will look like on the day. Remember the trial is there for you to make sure you are happy. If you aren’t happy, say so… and let them work on it until you are happy.


5. Practice different smiles. Smile with your eyes. Use them all. And remember that laughing always makes you look amazing. Nothing like a good laugh to not only relief stress, but also to make a perfect picture.





Winter Skin

Winter is known for causing Winter skin. This includes cracking, eczema, dandruff and flaking of skin.


Some tips to help you prevent Winter skin:


* Use sunscreen. Even if it’s Winter, you skin still needs protection.

* Use a humidifier. They are great to bring some moister into the air and will be absorbed by your skin and hair.

* Use an oil based moisturizer. It will seal your skin to prevent moister lost.

* Use creams with Chamomile or Aloe Vera or Lavender. Use the ones with natural oil as they are always best.


I trick that seems to be working for me as well is that when I shower, after washing but still in the shower I put some baby oil on. Then down RUB dry, just lighting dry your skin. My skin really feels the difference since I started using it this way.

If you have bad eczema, use natural aqueous cream. Don’t use the fragranced ones as this just irritates the skin more.

The Bug Trend

It’s hot. It’s fun. And it’s buzzing. The latest trends in clothing prints are bugs. Butterflies, dragonflies, bees, praying mantes even cockroaches (chills). If you don’t like the idea of a dress covered in bugs, this is a good option. Bring some fun to your outfit with these creepy crawlies.

The Snood

The Snood stayed from last year’s trend and I can understand why. It’s bulky, warm and stylish. So get yourself a warm cosy snood..

The Hooded Snood

What’s better than a snood? Well, a hooded snood of course! I personally need to go find myself one this instant. They are warm and just what you need in the icy windy we are experiencing today.

Some personal flair

I believe in being an individual, so take some of last year’s old scarves and pretty them up. Ad buttons, butterflies, bugs (as that would be really THE thing to do), flowers – anything you feel like.

Mid-weight Scarf

For those who don’t need to have something bulky and just want to feel something warm around your neck, this is the scarf for you. It’s not as heavy as the bulky scarves and you can use them even when the days grow warmer (yes that’s not happening in a while).
