By Natalie Willingham – Bridal Makeup & Hair Specialist

Short hair doesn’t need to be boring on your wedding day. In the last year I’ve styled a number of gorgeous ladies who have all had short hair (above the shoulders). So to give you a little bit of inspiration here are a few tips to take your wedding hair from now to wow!

Creating an Atmosphere at Your Wedding With Music

By Rosanna Whitton of Flautino

So you’re getting married? Congratulations! I bet you’ve already been dreaming about your dress and maybe the venue and who you’ll ask to be bridesmaids. But what about the feel of the wedding?

Creating an Atmosphere at Your Wedding With Music

This is a little more ambiguous but equally important, for you and your guests. The atmosphere of the wedding will be created by lots of things: the people who are there, the décor, the style and the music. It might help to do yourself a mood board with clippings from magazines to inspire you and narrow down the style you’re after. Think about things like the lighting, maybe creating scents with flowers and candles and little random things like a treasure hunt for after your wedding breakfast or a few outdoor games.Continue reading
