5 Tips Tuesday- Everything Wedding!

Hello everyone! I thought Tuesdays may start being a perfect day to offer at least  5 helpful tips to get your wedding planning moving right along. It is always  good to think outside of the box and do something a little different to make YOUR day-extra special♥

   My first tip is to you is, while thinking about your wedding hair is to not be afraid of accessories! Small veils coupled with really whimsical feathers give off a very classic look. Especially when you wear deep red or maroon lip stick like this bride. I would say though if you do opt for some sort of hair accessories make sure you feel comfortable. You can also take it off for your reception as to have two different looks at your wedding- like the celebrities do!

 My second wedding planning tip is that if you are thinking about doing an up-do hairstyle, think about doing loose pinned curls as opposed to really stiff -high hair. I think this bride looks effortless and not to mention beautiful.

My third wedding planning tip is to have something interactive for your guests to do at your wedding. I really like this idea below. Its a little card style memento for your guest to fill out at your wedding. I think it is awesome  because it will be a constant reminder of who shared your special day with you and will also give you an opportunity to gather some advice from couples who have been where you are now.

This is also super interactive! I am a very visual person so having  portraits of everyone from my wedding would be something I would always cherish. People always like to have something keeping them entertained whether it be while attending weddings or other events, so keep little inexpensive things like this in mind. Small details can really bring your BIG day together.

Lastly, whether or not your going to have an open bar at your wedding you can always do something completely different like these root-beer floats in very classy champagne glasses. Everyone like root beer floats ..right? Not to mention they are age appropriate for everyone!

Wedding Accessories: 10 Hot Trends to Wear Now

While wedding accessories might not always be the feature of your big day, they are a wonderful addition to stylize and complete your wedding ensemble. From a stunning hairpiece to shiny-studded shoes, there are countless ways to create an unforgettable look. We’ve selected 10 small
wedding accessories with big wow factor.

  1. Belts: A gorgeous lace belt can add a dramatic edge to an otherwise simple gown. Some even feature a pop of color or ornate beading, both of which make this accessory feminine and fashionable.
  2. Hair Vines This handy little chic wedding accessory can create multiple looks for your hair. Use it with your updo to add a flattering touch of sparkle.
  3. Feathers: Ever since Sex and the City star Sarah Jessica Parker donned a plume for her on-screen character’s wedding ensemble, brides everywhere have been clamoring for “Carrie-inspired” headpieces. A pop with a peacock feather
    is great, and several designers have incorporated fantastic feather headpieces into their latest collections. While feathers can add a wow factor to your wedding attire, use subtly to compliment the rest of your bridal look.
  4. Beaded Headbands: In the style of flappers and 1940s fashion icons, beaded headbands are a fantastic way to add something extra to a classic hairstyle. They are an elegant alternative to the traditional tiara and work with both updos and down-dos. These headpieces have made an overwhelming comeback, as many designers have released modern takes on these vintage accessories.
