To help you choose the best hairstyle for your wedding day here are some glamorous ideas you can try for the wedding based on your hair length.
Extra Short Hair

With all the natural weather patterns that have been sweeping over the United States lately we are reminded of how rough nature can be.

One of the most beautiful parts of spring is all the flowers that grow. These are primarily bulb flowers like tulips, daffodils, crocuses, irises, hyacinths and lilies.

While tulips, daffodils, irises and lilies are great for arrangements, you would want to do potted plants of crocuses and hyacinths for centerpieces.
Every woman wants to look and feel sexy on a regular basis and especially on their wedding night. From the style of your hair to the color of your toes, women do such a great job at picking themselves apart. To ensure you both look and feel sexy on your wedding day I have come up with a list of ten changes you can make.

Food and alcohol are two of the most expensive parts of a wedding reception. Buffets and time of day are a great way to cut down on the cost of food. However there are limited options for cutting back on the alcohol tab while still not having to charge at the bar. To help cut back on some costs here are five tips to help keep you alcohol tab low at your wedding reception.
Limited Hard Alcohol
The best way to save money on your alcohol bill is to have only a few types of hard alcohol and mixers available. This might mean you have a short list on the bar that says the few types of mixed drinks and other bottled alcohol available. A few examples are margaritas, rum and cola, cranberry and vodka, and mimosas. Then you just have to stock up on the two ingredients in each drink which is not as expensive as an unlimited bar.
When you are planning your wedding the last thing you will be thinking about is what to pack for the night after your big day. This is a great opportunity to purchase some fun items for the first night the two of you will enjoy together as husband and wife.

While you might have had this one figured out already, picking out really sexy lingerie set is a must for your wedding night. A stop at Victoria’s Secret or Frederick’s of Hollywood would be a great start as they have a huge selection in most sizes.

The night before your wedding make sure you exfoliate your face and moisturize directly after. It feels so silky smooth when you finish and helps with the makeup application the day of.

A nice soothing face mask is the best way to start your wedding day. It feels great and helps take away any redness or puffy areas on your face. Cucumber masks are the best because the cucumber is a natural anti-inflammatory. You can purchase a variety of these at the store or look up a recipe online.
Choosing the perfect moisturizer can pose somewhat of a challenge with all the varieties available. For your wedding day you are going to want a great lightweight moisturizer that does not make your face feel sticky. Most health shops or drug stores have an inexpensive vitamin C moisturizer which is a great choice.

With that in mind I have established a list of topics to go over in detail based on the winter or holiday theme to help with planning your wedding.
Set the Date
When thinking about planning a winter wedding there are three whole months to choose from. Whether you want a regular winter day or a holiday wedding on Hanukah, Christmas or New Years, it is important to keep in mind your family and friends. Hopefully if it is a holiday wedding you will be able to celebrate all together as two happy families spending the holidays together. I must say that is the perfect opportunity for a family gathering. The holidays bring people together as is so adding your wedding to the mix would make it extra special and allow more people to show up.

The most important of all is defiantly how much experience the photographer has or in other words, how great their portfolio is. To ensure they know what to do and you like the art of their photos, asking to see a portfolio is first on the agenda. Also if you know anyone else that has used this particular photographer then you could ask to see their photos. This would be considered the first round of elimination when it comes to selecting one of the many photographers out there. While making appointments and viewing lots of photos may be time consuming, you will be happy you did so.

Every bride-to-be has a million things to do before the wedding. This can lead to some slip-ups and missed opportunities when it comes to planning. Nobody wants to deal with last minute issues or cancellations but they tend to happen more than you would expect. To give the brides a heads up on what could happen I’ve come up with a list of horrible situations that have happened to other brides. Read on so that you can hopefully avoid these nightmares.
Wedding Dress Is Not Ready
I’ve heard of this happening more to brides that have distant weddings than local, but the seamstress has literally no time to get the dress finished.

Marriage is one of the largest decisions you can make in life. With two individuals joining together and becoming a family it is very important to consider each other’s circumstances. Now days it is very common to be marrying someone with children and as their fiancé it is important that you work on making a close relationship with the kids.
