Experts in the field of beauty have seen it all…from Bridal beautiful to Bridal disasters! Here are a few tips from those experts who are in the know and will help you to look and feel your best on your big day….

“If you look good in person then you are going to look good in pictures…you want to look like yourself.”

“A lot of girls are afraid of applying eyeliner to their bottom lashes, it really balances your look and defines and polishes the effect…if can still look natural.”

“The best spots to apply fragrance to the skin are areas where the heartbeat can be felt-wrists, neck, and décolletage. Movement will diffuse the fragrance into the air and your heartbeat is a good way to accomplish this. Also, loose powder layered over your perfume provides a barrier between the product and the environment and it will last longer.”

“Plan ahead! Choose a spa six months prior to your wedding that you really enjoy and sit down with an expert to make a plan to monitor stress weekly…map everything out from facials to massages. The whole point, after all is to have fun and enjoy your wedding. Also, any aromatherapy products with chamomile or lavender are good.”

Brenna Collins
Spa Director

“The Most important thing is that the bride and groom should have a facial no less than a week before the wedding. It is better to have a week to repair any irritation, especially if you do not normally have facials.”
