Tattooed Brides


This week we are going to talk about tattoos and brides,
Should they be revealed or covered at your wedding? 
Here's some tips, trends and different ideas.
I think:
Tattoos are who you are. By all means let them show!
Stay with me…















Found on tumblr.com  
Many years ago, when I was a girl and wanted a tattoo, 
People told me-"what will you do when you get married? 
A bride with tattoos is not pretty!" In the last years, I am happy
To see that there is more and more brides and grooms that are 
Getting married and showing their colorful sleeves and back tattoos.
After all, you need to be yourself at your wedding, 
And if your aunt has anything to say just smile and walk away.
This is your day, be whoever you want, come as you are and in
What you believe in. here are some beautiful tattoos for inspiration:

 To show or to hide?

For many, tattoos are a way of life.
For others an embarrassing reminder of their youthful folly or
A passing fad.
So when it comes to the wedding, a bride with tattoos will
Have to ask herself The big question:
To show or to hide?
It's normal that you would want to show them off,
They are a natural part Of who you are!
 Find a dress that completely reveals your tats, so everyone can
Appreciate them in the full. If you have a tattoo on your cleavage,
Look for a sweetheart neckline, if you have them on your
Arms a strapless,And if they are on your back,
A halter neck will do. If your tattoo is on
Your leg, then choose a short skirt.

 If you decide to hide your tattoo(s) there are lots of specialist make-ups
That can cover them. They are very thick and cover anything.
For a perfect finish choose one that is the same color as your skin
(remember you may have a spray tan done just before).
After application, dust off with powder for a matte finish.
 Buy the make-up a while before the wedding so you can get lots of practice in.
You could also look for a dress that covers the tattoo.














Henna Tattoo :
Henna has been there for centuries in the Arab World.
Arab women have been using henna to dye their hair and draw
Beautiful patterns on their hands and feet during special occasions.
It looks like the younger generations are getting into the
Henna trend especially at Henna parties and bachelorette parties.
Not all young brides are daring enough to put on permanent tattoos!
Like their wedding date, or matching tattoos with their groom.

Here are a few ideas you might like:

Wedding Boutonnieres

This week we will talk about the Boutonniere.
How to wear, how to match it to your res sans how to DIY... 
Stay with me. 


















Boutonniere?
A boutonniere is the male equivalent of the female corsage. 

The boutonniere is usually a collection of one or two small flowers.

 It is always pinned to the left lapel of the tuxedo or suit.

The boutonniere tends to be less expensive then the corsage and they are
Actually one of the simplest floral arrangements to make if one is trying 
To save Money at weddings or proms.
A man’s floral boutonniere may range in price from 10-40 US Dollars (USD),
Depending upon the flowers chosen, and the florist’s mark-up.
Sometimes boutonnieres are included in the price of a large order of 
Bouquets.
The groom, groomsmen, ushers, and the fathers of the bride and groom 
Wear boutonnieres at weddings.
 If someone other than the father is escorting the bride down the aisle,
He should also Wear a boutonniere.

How to Wear a Boutonniere

The boutonnière is worn on the left lapel of a men’s suit, sport jacket,

Or blazer jacket; it can also be worn on an overcoat.

The boutonniere is always attached above a man’s heart, and it should be

Worn in the lapel’s button-hole, a 1 to 1.5 inch opening that is a vestige 

Of When a man’s jacket lapels closed to protect his neck.









DIY Boutonniere:


DIY Feather Boutonniere
Step 1: Choose feathers and accent pieces in your colors
Step 2: Gather the pieces and arrange them exactly how you want them 
To look on your boutonniere.
Step 3: Using floral tape . bind your feathers together at the base. 
Be sure they are all secure in the adhesive and will not slip out!
Step 4: You’re done.
Making our own feather and floral pieces was one of the easiest DIY’s 
We chose to do! I highly recommend it and it’s a project that can be done 
Months in advance, which is always nice!


 













So which Boutonniere would you chose?
Will you DIY or will you buy one?
Which combination did you choose- Flowers, fathers or textile?
Share and comment ...
