When you walk through stores this time of year, you’d think that Easter was a holiday reserved just for kids. Adorable little Easter dresses for the girls and suits for the boys. Brightly-colored baskets with brightly-colored eggs. And, of course, let’s not forget the Easter Bunny.
Today, we are sharing a fabulous shoot that Marigold and Grey pulled together right in time for Easter weekend. As she prepares for the weekend to welcome guests into her room, she wanted to create something elegant and organic, something that would remind her of childhood but, ultimately, would be the the perfect adult Easter…and yes, there would be Cadbury eggs involved!
Yes, weddings are expensive, and for everyone involved. It is important to be conscious of how much your bridal party is actually spending on your big day. It is an honor to be asked to stand by your loved ones, but also a large financial commitment. As a bridesmaid, they are often times spending money on wedding attire from a dress to shoes to jewelry, bridal showers, bachelorette weekend, transportation, hotel stays, hair and makeup for the day of the wedding, and the list goes on. The average bridesmaid will spend between $1,500-$1,700 by the time the wedding is over. Make yourself aware of the time and financial efforts your bridal party is putting in to making sure your dream day is everything you wanted. Don’t forget to show them your gratitude and remember everyone loves a little pampering. Hey, they deserve it!
It is important to schedule a trial run with your stylist a few weeks before the wedding. You will be able to figure out the exact look you are hoping for and discuss with him or her a wedding hair care plan for the weeks leading up to the wedding. Before scheduling your appointment, we have a few things for you to remember.
1. Wear makeup; You don’t have to go all wedding day beautified, but you should wear your every day, natural makeup. You are going to be looking at yourself for a long time and it is easier to get an idea of the full picture, when you feel your best.
2. Bring pictures; Any inspiration you can show your stylists will help them understand the look you are going for. From wedding hair pictures you found on Pinterest to pictures of your flowers to your wedding dress, your stylists will be able to take your “wedding look” and help you create the perfect “wedding-do!”
3. Don’t forget your accessories; If you plan on wearing any bridal accessories in your hair, don’t forget them! You will need to stylize your hair with the veil, flowers or clip you plan on wearing the day of the wedding.
4. Prep properly; Wash and blow dry your hair the night before. Don’t put any product in and go natural. Your stylist will need to work with the texture of your hair the same way it will be on your wedding day.
5. Be open for change; If there is a style that you love, ask your stylist if there is anything you can do to to help it look its best. It could be anything from changing your part to getting longer layers. Be open for something new!
