Flower Girls
A flower girl is a participant in a wedding procession. Like ring bearers and page boys, flower girls are usually members of the bride's or bridegroom's extended family, but may also be friends.
Her male equivalent is the ring bearer or page boy. Often the ring bearer and the flower girl are dressed to look like a couple, and they may be dressed in miniature versions of the bride's and bridegroom's clothes.
Typically, the flower girl walks in front of the bride during an entrance processional. She may spread flower petals on the floor before the bride or carry a bouquet of flowers. Her dressing resembles to the bride's.

How to Make a Beautiful Flower Girl Basket


A flower girl is a noticeable part of any wedding party. She usually wears the same color of the bride and may have curls in her hair and other dainty accessories such as a headpiece or gloves. Her duty in the wedding is to gently throw flower petals on the ground for the bride, as she walks in. The flower girl carries the petals in a small basket customized with decorations such as flowers, ribbons and bows.

Instructions:

 Choose a basket small enough for a toddler or child to carry. If the basket is not at the color of 
your choice, spray paint it before adding the additional decorations.

 Line the inside base of the basket by cutting a piece of cardboard the same diameter as the bottom 
of the basket and place the cardboard inside the basket.

 Lay the satin on a flat surface with the shiny side down and set the basket on the satin. Attach the satin to the basket by pulling it over the bottom of the basket. Put glue on the inside of the basket just over the top, pull the satin up, and press it on the glued areas. Attach the satin to the basket until you completely cover the bottom of the basket and trim off any excess satin.

 Attach a piece of ribbon around the top edges of the basket with the hot glue gun. Add the rosebuds and flowers on top of the ribbon around the basket.

 Make a small bow with a thick piece of ribbon or tulle and glue it to the front of the basket.

 Wrap a ribbon around the handle of the basket and glue the ends down on the inside of the 
basket. Trim any additional ribbon.

 Place the rose petals inside the basket.

Bridal Hair


Getting married is truly a dream comes true, you’ve finally met the man you want to spend the rest of your life with. When selecting your wedding jewelry, your gown, your shoes and your dress, your hairstyle will be the completed look to pull everything together. This year’s styles are right in line with celebrity looks from the red carpet. Braids are a great addition to add something modern to your bridal hairstyle, or play around with hair accents such as hair wreaths, veils, and even hats. You can also use floral accents to add to your hairstyle if you are getting married in a warm season. Key trends to play around with for 2013 are hair twists, creative undoes, braids, headpieces, soft romantic curls, deep waves, and ponytails.

















Here are some top tips that will help you choose the right bridal hairstyles for your wedding day.
Grow your hair a few months before the wedding. This will give you more options in choosing the right hairstyle that will suit you. This will save the cost of acquiring hair extensions if needed.
Consider a wedding venue – beach or church. A soft flowing curls style long hair or short hair and sassy style may be more suited for the beach. A traditional up do hair style may not be suitable for a church or a fairy tale wedding theme.
Have you ever wondered if there is a perfect bridal hairstyles picture for you on your wedding day? You’ve seen all the glossy bridal magazines and still not sure whether a certain hairstyle looked amazing and beautiful on the celebrity or model is right for you. You even try to imagine yourself in one hairstyle.
Do not panic, with some professional help from a hair stylist bride or even female friends, you’ll have the most perfect hair style for your wedding day.
One of bridal hairstyles with veil are the most popular for brides with medium length hair is half display. In this hairdo, the stylist will pull the front of the bride’s hair back, and leave the rest flowing down. Seeing this tends to work well for any formality of wedding. Before applying the hair style you choose you have to treat your hair a few months prior. It will be three months in ideal. Wash your hair in warm water, use a shampoo and conditioner best, cut the ends of your hair with razor for better growth.





Wedding day is supposed to be one of the best and splendid days in one's life. It is the only time to make their dreams come true. Other than wedding arrangements, preparation of wedding couple is also of greater importance. Bride must plan their wedding dress, makeup, and jewelry and hair style well in advance. Here is a short description on bridal hair styles.

Bun Hair Style













To get some different look but keeping with traditional bun hair style you can move the bun from center of the head to the side. It looks very stylish. I recommend this hair style to the brides who have prominent eyes and
broad face cut


Twisted Bun Hair Style

Bun hair style is considered as traditional bridal hair style. In this style all of the hair is collected together and twisted to form a bun. After making a bun, different accessories or flowers are used to adorn the bun for elegant look. This hair style is very suitable for brides having long hair.
Side Bun Hair Style















Twisted bun hair style also looks very nice. It is also suitable for the brides who have a short length of hair. You need to curl your hair and then collect them on a point in different styles.
This style looks very stylish. Different accessories can also be used to adorn the hair in this style.

Curled Hair Style
You can make a different look than traditional look by curling your hair and then joining them on a point and leaving rest of hair to add to your style and beauty. This style is very suitable for brides having step cutting and short hair. Curled hair always looks very fair.
Bohemian Hair Style



















If you have long hair and don’t want to tie them then this hair style is very good for you. You may curl the hair and tie them with a crown. The hair will be loose at the back but away from the face. Brides having wavy hair must try this hair style.

At my wedding,
My hair was pulled up and the rest was loose.
With a touch of Babyliss
My hair was decorated with small white flowers.
All I remember from my hair design is that I had a headache from the pins, and when I got home I washed my hair fast...

Wedding hair accessory ideas:

Headbands

Before you discard the thought of wearing a headband as being too Blair Waldorf, take a peek at some of the beautiful, sparkly bridal headbands and yes, even tiaras! If you are looking for just a subtle hair accessory, try a thin floral or embellished headband that can easily be incorporated into a down or half up half down hairstyle. Your hairstylist can easily style your hair into soft, pretty waves for a very natural look. Of course, if you want a little more bling, a thicker headband or tiara with lots of rhinestones may be more your thing. You can incorporate a tiara into an up do as well.




 

 

  

Flowers

Real or fake, flowers always make for a feminine hair piece and a lovely adornment to add to your hairstyle for your wedding day. They can be incorporated into updos, down and half up half down hairstyles. We especially love real flowers placed into the side of a down hairstyle for beautiful beach
brides.

Bridal makeup

This week we will talk about bridal makeup.
How to match the right makeup for you,
Different techniques , tips, videos and recommendations.

















10 Tips For Bridal Make Up:
Nothing is as beautiful as a joyful bride. To avoid any makeup stress on your special day, keep essentials like pressed powder and lip color in your emergency bridal kit for touch ups. Practice your makeup application before the wedding, so when the day comes you'll feel confident, beautiful, and ready for one of the most memorable days of your life.

Consider Climate before Applying Makeup.
Especially for brides getting married in warmer climates, consider using as many oil-free products as possible — primer, moisturizer, foundation, etc. — and keeping oil-free blotting sheets on hand.


Always Apply Your Foundation with a Sponge or Brush.
"Certain foundations work better with a sponge or brush, but definitely use either one or the other — never your fingers. The less you can touch your face, the better. Your fingers can also leave behind fingerprints so the look isn't as smooth and finished-looking. If you use a sponge, apply foundation by stippling the sponge, not swiping it across the skin. This gives your foundation a more natural look, and blends it more evenly into the skin.


For a Natural Makeup Look, Try a Cream Blush.
It goes on sheer and looks healthy and fresh. If you want more staying power, try layering a powder blush on top of it.
You Can Learn Where to Place Your Blush Just by Smiling!
When you smile, the apple of your cheek pops out. Place your blush right there and blend into your temple — this will make it look like you're naturally flushing.
An Eyebrow Pencil Is a Must-Have.
A big step that some women forget when they do their makeup, and something that you'll especially want to do on your wedding day, is to use a brow pencil to fill in your eyebrow. It really frames your eye and finishes the whole picture. A tip for finding the right color for your eyebrow pencil: Always go a shade or two lighter than your own natural eyebrow color.


Curl Your Lashes the Right Way.
"The best way to curl your lashes ,is to curl at the root of the lash, at the middle, and at the tip. You don't need to clamp down with the curler, just squeeze lightly.
 Do have a makeup trial before the big day.
Have a few trials with a makeup artist or a makeup counter. Most freelance makeup artists will offer a bridal trial separate to the actual wedding day. It’s not a con to take your money! The trial is so important. Both for the makeup artist and for you .
Having the chance to try different looks means that on the day you are going to be feeling confident and happy in the knowledge that the look you are wearing is right for you and is going to last!
Do have your trial in the morning so you can see how your make up lasts.
Have an appointment in the morning so you can really see how the products wear throughout the day. The makeup might look perfect when you first have it applied, but see how it wears after lunch!
Do take a photo. 
Take a photo in natural daylight with a digital camera (not a camera phone) as soon as you have had a makeup trial. The makeup needs to look good on camera as well as face to face. The camera doesn’t lie! It also doesn’t help to get a close friend’s opinion. Or a
sister’s. They never lie either!
