Why Do I Love Making Memories
Why Have The Floral Arrangements Embellishing The Most Important Day Of Your Life Be Boring And Predictable? You Are Neither Of Those Things! Therefore, Why Should Your Flowers Be? It’s Thoughts Like These That Eventually Pushed Me To Move On To My Passion Of Floral Design. I Have Now Been In The Business Now For Nearly Thirty Years. That Being Said, I Had Always Worked For Other People In The Past, But Then, I Finally Realized That It Was Time For Me To Help Brides Of My Own. Flash Forward To Present Day, I’m Thrilled To Say That I Just Celebrated Three Years Of Owning My Own Business, And Couldn’t Be More Over-joyed To Have The Opportunity To Give My Clients My Full Attention And More.  as A Floral Artist, I Live For Helping My Brides Create Their Perfect Wedding. Creativity Is The Root Of My Passion And The Main Inspiration Behind Starting My Own Business. My Least Favorite Thing On The Other Hand Is Feeling Trapped Into Generic, Cookie-cutter Designs. This Is Why I Love It When My Clients Allow Me The Freedom To Think Outside Of The Box And Be More In Tune With Turning Their Personal Stories Into Elements I Include In Their Arrangements. I Get To Play Around With Beautiful Blooms, Feathers, And Greenery Every Day, While Also Helping My Clients Concentrate On The Actual Products They’re Receiving And Making Sure They’re Worth Their Time And Effort. to Me, Flowers Are Like A Piece Of Jewelry. They Can Make A Huge Statement, With Gorgeous Colors And Jewels, Or They Can Be Simple And Subtle, While Still Making A Significant And Sweet Impact On Your Entire Day. My End Result Of Every Wedding I Work On? creating Something Unique And Personal To You That You Are Head Over Heals For.with Loveannette

Everything You Need To Know Before Getting A Wedding spray Tan
You’ve Planned Every Detail Of Your Wedding Including Found Your Something Old, New And Blue. You’ve Even Mastered Your Makeup And Hair Look And Nailed Down What Your Bridesmaids Look Will Be Like. Diva? It’s Ok - And Guess What, Its Your Day! The Last Thing You Want For You (and Your Bridesmaids) Is Something So Easy And Simple To Do …. Is A Spray Tan Mishap Such As The Bronzers Transferring Off On Your Beautiful White Dress And Of Course That Dreaded Cheetah Orange Hue That You Will Forever Be Haunted With In Your Forever Pictures.as A Wedding Makeup Artist, I See Hundreds Of Sunless Tans Gone Bad On A Weekly Basis —- Whether It’s From A Bad Spray Tan Or Selecting The Wrong Self Tanner. So I Know Your Struggles And We Want To Help You Get The Perfect Glow. we Know Wearing White Can Be Daunting So You Are Probably Going To Want To Get Your Faux Glow On And So We Have Collaborated Our Best Tips For Brides To You Can Be Sure You Are Looking Your Best And Have No Worries About The Overall Finish. Once You Have Learned The Abcs Of Sunless Tanning (spray Tans And Self Tanners) You Will Be A Pro And Will Never Regret Learning The Inside Scoop.1. when Is The Perfect Time To Get Your Spray Tan?  we Suggest Getting A Fresh Spray Tan At Least 48hours Prior To Your Wedding So You Will Have Two Showers To Wash Off The Bronzers Prior To Wearing Your Wedding Dress. By Day One, Your Tan Has Already Started To Settle Into The Skin And You Are Encouraged To Follow The Aftercare Instructions To Keep That Flawless Glow. You Also Have Time To Be Sure It Looks Great Everywhere And Be Sure Hands And Feet Didn’t Absorb Too Much Of The Tan. And If, God Forbid It Isn’t Right...you Have Time To Get It Fixed Or Touched Up. 2. is There Any Chance It Will Get On My Dress? Not Usually As Long As You Have Had A Chance To Shower Twice Between The Time You Received Your Spray Tan (or Applied Self Tanner) And When You Put On Your Wedding Dress.3.  white Is An Extreme Color To Wear With A Tan. How Should You Pick What Shade To Tan With? You Want To Have A Consultation With Your Spray Tanner And Talk About Factors That Would Help Her Choose The Spray Tan (and You Can Use These Tips When Selecting A Self Tanner). You Want To Look At Your Current Base Color, Hair Color, Time Of Year You Are Getting Married, Color Of Dress, Etc. We Don’t Suggest Tanning More Than Two Shades Darker Than Your Current Natural Skin Tone Because It Will Look More “fake”. You Also Want To Research What Undertones Would Look Best For You - Spray Tans And Self Tanners Can Vary In Undertones: Green, Red, Caramel, Violet, Etc. Each Of These Will Give You A Different Finish. We Suggest You Start One Month Prior To Wedding And Book A Trial Spray Tan So You Can Feel More Confident In Selecting The Tan That Looks Best On You. 4.  what Should You Look For In A Tanning Salon Or Self Tanner? Choose A Place That Doesn’t Use The Same Color Shade For Everyone. That Is A Really Bad Sign, A Really Bad Sign. And Find Out What Spray Tan Formula Including Undertones They Use. Most Salons Carry Their Recommended Self Tanners So These Questions Would Apply To Selecting The Right One Too.    5. What If I Wanted To Look Darker In My Tan But I Am Nervous If The Initial Spray Tan May Be Too Dark And Come Off Looking Too Orange? we Recommend A “double Dip” Technique With Your Spray Tan Or Self Tanner. What This Means Is You Will Book An Initial Spray Tan 4-5  days Prior To Wedding Day And Ask For The Lightest Formula So It Will Have 48hrs To Settle In And Provide A Beautiful Base Tan. Be Sure To Follow The Aftercare So You Will Protect And Moisture Your Skin Properly. Next You’ll Book Your Wedding Day Tan (part Two) For 48hrs Prior To Wedding And Spray Tan Either Same Shade (to Darken  1-2 Shades Darker) Or One Next Shade Darker (to Darken 2-3 Shades Darker).

8 Great Insider Secrets To Help You Plan The Perfect Dream Destination Wedding.
Author Catrina Reese There Is Absolutely Nothing More Special Than Getting Married On The Sand Someplace Tropical And Romantic. As Beautiful And Exquisite As These Locations Are; It Takes A Lot Of Work Planning A Destination Wedding. There’s Much More To Take Into Account Than The Perfect Venue Itself; Which Definitely Is The Main Item On The List Of Priorities. Timing Of Your Ceremony, Weather At The Location, And Your Guests’ Availability To Travel Are All Major Concerns Every Couple Planning A Destination Wedding Needs To Consider. So, Check Out These 8 Great Insider Secrets When Planning A Memorable Getaway For You And Your Guests. These Tips Can Help You Pull Off A Destination Wedding To Remember. 1. Pick The Perfect Spot Your Wedding Location Determines Not Only The Mood, But Also The Travel, Time And Budget Required To Pull It Off. Your Wedding Elements—which Include Location, Activities And Overall Ambiance—should Say Something About Your Shared Style And Passions. And What Makes A Wedding Memorable Is When Your Guests Head Back Home From Your Wedding Weekend Saying, That Was So Them! If Your First Vacation Was Somewhere Tropical? Invite Friends And Family To A Resort In Mexico, The Caribbean Or Hawaii. 2. Time It Right Unfortunately, The Best Weather In Popular Vacation Destinations Tends To Correlate With Tourist Season, When There Are Typically More Crowds, Fewer Hotel And Venue Availabilities, And Higher Rates All Around. If You’re Planning A Destination Wedding During This Peak Time, Book Your Venue And Reserve Your Room As Soon As Possible. If You Opt For The Off-season, You May Be Able To Save Yourself And Your Guests Some Money And Still Enjoy Great Weather. While The Off-season Will Mean Fewer Crowds, The Weather Can Be A Gamble, So Consider The Caribbean’s Hurricane Season. Some Places You May Consider Many Have Their Stores, Venues And Vendors Close Up Shop. 3. Give Everyone A Heads-up I Hear A Lot Of Brides Say “i Have Been Planning For This Day Since I Was A Kid” And The People They Desire To Be In Their Bridal Party Are Special Family And Friends. So, When You Are Planning A Destination Wedding Before You Ask Them To Stand By Your Side, Let Them Know So They Can Gracefully Decline If Their Finances Are Tight. And It’s A Good Idea To Give The Rest Of Your Guest List Plenty Of Notice So They Can Begin To Plan And Get The Best Deals On Flights And Make Appropriate Arrangements To Be There As Well. Send Out Save-the-dates At Least Eight Months In Advance So You Will Not Be Too Upset If Some Of Your Closest Friends Or Relatives Don't Attend. While You Are, In A Sense Footing Some Of The Food Bills, Their Fees For Travel, Hotel And Extras Can Really Add Up. 4. Make Guests Feel Welcome & Dress The Part Your Friends And Family Are Eager To Celebrate With You, So Create A Wedding Website That Will Make It Easy For Them To Find All The Necessary Details In One Place—like Group Rates For Flights And Hotel Rooms—how To Get To And From The Airport, A List Of Nearby Activities They May Want To Do On Their Own And An Itinerary Of The Weekend’s Events, Like The Rehearsal Or Welcome Dinner. And Upon Arrival, Make Sure Welcome Bags Are In Their Rooms; Like Sunscreen, Water And Bug Spray. Don't Forget To Consider The Climate When Choosing Your Wedding Attire—and The Dress Code For Each Of Your Events. You'll Be Swimming In Sweat If You Pair Your Satin Ball Gown Or Wool Suit With The Humidity That Comes With A Tropical Outdoor Venue, And It’s Considerate To Give Guests A Heads-up On Appropriate Attire And Footwear If You’ll Be Exchanging Vows On The Sand. 5. Factor In The Extra Expenses If Done And Planned Right, A Destination Wedding Can Cost No More Or Maybe Even Less—than Hosting The Same Party At Home (depending On Where You Live, Of Course). For Example, If You Live In A Us Metropolitan City Where Venues Are In High Demand Then Holding Your Wedding In Mexico Will Likely Be Less Expensive Than Doing It At Home, Even When You Total In Airfare, Hotel Expenses And Local Excursions. Still, There May Be Extra Expenses You'll Need To Factor In For Any Destination Wedding, Including Welcome Bags For Guests And Travel Costs For You And Your Immediate Families. So, Make A Budget That’s Realistic And Factors In All Of These Extra Costs. 6. Research Local Marriage Requirements The Legal Side Of Tying The Knot In A Different Country Can Be Complicated And Should Be Researched. Many Countries Have A Residency Requirement (for Example, 24 Hours In Turks And Caicos) Which Means You Must Reside In The Country For A Certain Length Of Time Before Your Ceremony. Although This Is Usually Just A Few Days, It Can Be Longer. If It's Next To Impossible To Do It At Your Chosen Destination And Have It Legally Recognized, Consider Making It Official (by Government Standards) Before You Travel. That Way Your Wedding Day Will Be In Front Of Your Guests, But There's No Doubt It's The Real Deal. 7. Get Help Control Freaks, Beware: If You're Hosting A Wedding In A Distant Locale, You Will Need To Entrust At Least Part Of The Planning To Someone Else's Capable Hands. You Can Get A Coordinator To Be Your Behind-the-scenes Go-to Person To Assist With The Local Destination If Creating Gift Bags For Guests, Greeting Everyone At The Airport, Keeping People Busy With Fun Activities Once There, Vetting Special Requests (babysitters, Dry Cleaners, And So On), And Getting Everyone Where They Need To Be On Time. 8. Consider The Elements It's Essential To Think Of The Unexpected When Planning A Destination Wedding. Talk With Your Planner Or Venue About Lighting: If Your Reception Takes Place Outdoors, You'll Need Backup For When The Sun Goes Down And For Safety Too. Stringing Market Lights Or Adding A Romantic Vibe With Hundreds Of Candles Are Great. And Even Through Crashing Waves Are Peaceful And Romantic, Your Guests Want To Hear Your Vows. So, Consider Lapel Mics, And Make Sure That The Dj Or Band Has Enough Equipment And Power To Entertain All Night As Well. Besides That, Think About What Else You Can Provide To Make It A Better Experience For Your Guests, Like Flip-flops For Your Oceanfront Ceremony Or Umbrellas In The Event Of A Late Afternoon Drizzle.
Water Color Floral - Wedding Ideas!
An Important Part Of Planning Your Wedding Flowers Is Considering Your Wedding Date. Most Flowers Are Available Year Round, But If They Are Out Of Season In Your Area, It May Cost More To Bring Them In From Other Parts Of The World. There Are Certain Flowers That Cannot Be Obtained Out Of Season For Any Price, Just A Few, But If These Are Your Absolute Favorites, You’ll Definitely Want To Keep That In Mind When Choosing The Date! A Quick Call To Your Florist Will Solve Any Disappointment Later On. Locally Grown Flowers And In Season Flowers Are More Affordable And Usually Fresher, They Do Not Have To Make A Trip, So To Speak, And Then Re-hydrate Upon Arrival. If A Green Environment Is Important To Your Theme, Keep It Local. Choose A Color Scheme Instead Of Particular Blooms. Leave Some Of The Artistic Details To Your Floral Designer. Always Consider Temperatures Around Your Wedding Date. If You Plan To Have A Snowy January Wedding Theme And Wish To Take Photos Outside With Your Flowers, Keep In Mind That Some Blooms Are Not Tolerant To Cold Conditions. Consult With Your Florist About Which Flowers Can Hold Up, Take The Outdoor Photos After The Ceremony, Or Have Your Designer Create A Silk Flower Mock-up Just For Those Chilly Pics! The Same Idea Goes With Certain Blooms In The Middle Of August. Flowers That Tend To Wilt In The Heat Need To Be Conditioned Ahead Of Time And Must Not Be Out Of Water For Long Photo Sessions. Discuss With Your Florist, Which Blooms May Be A Problem And Make Substitutions That Will Last Longer. An Example Is A Balmy Outdoor Beach Wedding, Instead Of Stephanotis, Choose White Dendrobium Orchids That Love The Tropical Temps. These Tips Will Help You Coordinate Your Wedding Date With Your Dream Floral Look.
