Makeup Dos and Don’ts:

Every woman wants to be beautiful on her big day. And to make sure you’re looking your best, follow these wedding makeup tips of dos and don’ts for summer brides.

Do: Emphasize the eyes
This summer season the trend is all about the eyes. False lashes are the perfect way to add a little glamour to your eyes as well and make them “pop”. Long and lush lashes, shimmery shadows and lots of eyeliner will make your eyes smolder and have everyone hold their gaze just a little bit longer.

Don’t: Forgo foundation:
Whether you need it or not, use it because it creates an even skin tone, a must for wedding photos.

Do: Play it safe Natural beauty with captivating eyes is the look you want to go for this summer. Not only does the trend look amazing in person, but it’s enchanting in pictures. Be sure to use water-proof products when possible to ensure no amount of tears will disturb it and you will be runway ready when you walk down the aisle with all eyes on you.

Don’t: Over-load on Bronzer: The effect is meant to mimic where the sun would naturally kiss your face – down bridge of nose, across the forehead, tip of chin and highest part of cheeks. It is not meant to be worn over every inch of your face to look like a tan.

10 Money-saving Tips for Your Wedding Reception

When it comes to the wedding budget, a major consideration is what beverages to serve at the wedding reception. Many of your guests will expect you to have a bar setup that serves alcoholic beverages of some sort. But what you serve and how you will serve it depends on your knowledge of wedding reception bar options. Here are some terms you need to know for serving alcoholic beverages, and ways to keep costs down.

1. Champagne Reception:
This type of reception spotlights champagne as the only alcohol-based beverage served. When calculating how much champagne to order from your wedding cateringservice, allow four glasses per standard bottle. For a toast, figure one glass per person. For cocktails, you may need two. One-half bottle per guest is usually sufficient for most receptions unless you expect a series of formal toasts or if your event is very lengthy.

2. Corkage Fee:
This is a fee per bottle to open and serve liquor you bring to your reception site. Most of the time only restaurants will have corking fees. Other venues will require you to use their wine.

3. Consumption Bar:
At this type of reception, your wedding catering bartenders keep a running tab of drinks served and total the cost per drink. You pay for each drink consumed, and, depending on the tastes of your guests, your cost could be high.
