When your wedding day arrives, regardless of what colour or length your hair normally is, you will want to make it look like it’s never looked before. Deciding on which style you really want may take more planning than you think.
You may want to have a style that involves having longer hair than you have now, or maybe shorter, or maybe you want a tiara or other decoration. Maybe you fancy a different colour but are not sure which. All of these need careful consideration and preparation - leave dying your hair to the night before and you had better be prepared for getting married with orange hair!
For those brides-to-be that have an all time favourite hairstyle that they have already worn a few times before you will have more time to concentrate on what other accessories you will wear on your hair.
Finding the Perfect Hairstyle
Browse through as many bridal magazines as you can looking at all the hairstyles.
Ask close friends and family members, as well as your hairdresser, which style may suit you.
Your hairstyle should compliment your wedding dress, for example swept up hairstyles suit a backless dress whilst romantic ringlets or cascading loose curls look wonderful on a princess ball gown.
Visit the hairdresser up to six months before your special day for any treatments such as perms, cuts and colouring.
Hair grows about half an inch a month so start growing as soon as you have decided if your chosen hairstyle is to be for long hair. It's always easier to have shorter hair when it is long, than longer hair when it is short!
When booking a stylist try and get one that comes with a recommendation from friends and previous brides.
Take into consideration the texture of your hair before fully deciding on the style. What looks great in a magazine or somebody else may not look as good on you!
Choose a style that you are going to feel comfortable in. If you don’t like hair in your face and you are always pushing it away then go for a style that is tied away, keeping it tidy all day, yet at the same time elegant and classy.
Your hairstyle should compliment both your wedding dress and facial shape and of course, most importantly, make you feel beautiful!
Our skin needs nourishment just as our body does and although its easy to keep the body 'fuelled' we must also remember to maintain our skin in keeping the plumpness and youthfullness we all crave!
Get into the habit of following a skincare routine, one which will last you well beyond the lead up to your wedding day. Even if you are born with perfect skin, it still needs help along the way.
Following a daily routine of skin care is simple and can be done in three easy steps. Getting into the practise of cleansing, toning and moisturising will benefit your skin for many years, as well as helping you continue to feel good about yourself.
12 months to go
Give up the junk food and replace it with fresh fruit, salads and vegetables, as this will help boost your immune system.
Start drinking the recommended daily 1.5 to 2 litres of water if you don’t do so already, as its important to keep your skin hydrated.
Start doing some exercise so that you look and feel great on the wedding day.
6 months to go
Try to make sure you start to get plenty of sleep, aim for eight hours each night, otherwise you will look tried in your wedding photographs.
If you don’t do so already start to exfoliate once or twice a week. If you are someone who has sensitive skin don’t worry there are a whole range of products available, and if you don’t like the look of them you can always make your own.
Cleanse, tone and moisturise twice a day.
Use whitening toothpaste which can help to remove any unsightly stains allowing you to smile with confidence.
3 months to go
Go and have your nails done. If you bite your nails and are conscious about it, then you can always have false nails.
Moisturise your hands regularly so that they don’t dry out.
Have your eyebrows done. If you have sensitive skin you might ask if you can have them threaded rather than waxed.
The night before
Have a soak in the tub with some aromatherapy oils, as they will help you sleep
It's time for your Hair and Makeover!!

A WORLD OF WAYS TO SAY I DO
Wedding Vow Examples
For hearing my thoughts,
understanding my dreams,
and being my best friend...
For filling my life with music,
and loving me without end...
As our marriage brings new meaning to love,
so our love brings new meaning to life.
When I wake up in the morning
Sunshine's falling on my skin
And I call you up to tell you
What a happy mood I'm in
Feel the rhythm in my body
And sing is all I wanna do
I feel the day will bring me sunshine
for it's another day with you.
If there's one face I want to see,
so beautiful, so true,
one smile that makes a difference,
to everything I do.
If there's one touch I long to feel,
one voice I long to hear,
whenever I am happy,
or just needing someone near.
If there's one joy, one love,
from which I never want to part,
it's you, my very special love,
my world, my life, my heart.
