The Perfect “I-Do” Look

Today’s guest post comes to us from Jennifer LaVelle of Mary Kay (Web/ECB), makeup expert and recent bride who was married in summer 2015.

In a world of Pinterest, finding inspiration for the perfect make-up is limitless. As you choose your dress and hair style it is important to meet with your make-up artist early to determine what your day-of look will be. Some brides (myself included) go through multiple sessions with their make-up artist to get that perfect look.

Choose Your Pros Wisely (That Means Early)

You want the absolute best venue, photographer, and DJ that you can afford. Duh. Why wouldn’t you? Of course you want to have a wedding for the ages. Now imagine choosing the best of everything and then finding out that they’ve chosen somebody else – another bride!

The Polite and the Realistic: Attendant Duties

Your wedding is a big deal to you (plural) and it may also be a reason to celebrate for your dearest friends and relatives. Some of whom you may determine should be part of your bridal party, not just the celebration. It is important that you are clear about what the attendants’ financial and personal responsibilities are so that you can also inform your prospects before they accept the job.
