With unconventional materials, fabric textures and styles, a whole range of fashions, styles and designs are at a bride’s fingertips. Read on to decide what looks good on you…

First step to tying the knot

Along with discussing just how serious a commitment it is that you’re signing up for, there are also some specific things that all partners should experience together before they actually decide to go for the long haul. You want to make sure that y ou are both facing the same direction. Your future should be a combined effort, based on what you both want for yourselves and each other when it comes to planning your big day.

Decide on your beauty professional

The easiest way to find any pro for your wedding is by asking your friends-nothing beats word of mouth, especially in the world of weddings. Your photographer or hairstylist might also have great suggestions for a makeup artist, since most have worked with some in the past.

Current bridal trend

Despite many wedding dresses having that ‘timeless’ feel about them, there are definitely trends that arise in bridal fashion.

More relaxed and bohemian style designs are perfect for summer weddings. There has been lots of hype over this style of wedding dress this season .

Bridal fashion has come so far in recent years, to the point where wedding jumpsuits and trouser suits are almost as common on the runway as dresses. If you’re skirt-phobic and want to rock a totally unique and stylish look – then this is the trend for you.

Kandyan or Indian saree or a dress?

The type of bridal attire that a bride chooses depends on her preference, sense of style and body shape. Each bride is different in every way and this depends on each ones individual style.

What to look for in a wedding saree or dress

Bridal consultants will tell you that they constantly see women come in with a set idea of what they want for a gown, then try it on and don't actually love it. Instead, they fall for something completely different – like something they'd never considered. Keep an open mind to finding a dream dress or saree that you didn't know would be your dream dress.

Doing a trial before the wedding

It is important to do a trial as it helps the bride and the person dressing her decide on the finalized look that needs to be achieved on the day of the wedding.

Airbrush make up vs regular foundation

While Airbrush makeup has been used by professionals for many years, it has become more popular with personal users in recent times. There are many differences between airbrush makeup and traditional makeup, and benefits from both, but one size does not fit all. So if you are interested in purchasing an airbrush makeup kit, you will be interested in learning the differences between the two different types of makeup application and how they affect you.

Airbrush makeup is makeup which is applied using an airbrush stylus and air compressor, similar to that used for applying spray tans but on a smaller scale. It is applied in the form of a very fine mist and therefore it is necessary for the product to be a lot thinner than normal foundations. However, despite being thinner, airbrush makeup provides fantastic coverage of imperfections, which can be built up from a sheer to full application, while still looking natural and letting the skin breathe. Airbrush makeup gives a professional but natural look.
