DelectablyChic! is excited to present its 4th Annual Summer Bridal feature, our four part series on Wedding Prep, Gifts, The Wedding Day, as well as Best Urban Honeymoon Hotels.
Last week, we covered Gifts. This Week, we are on to The Wedding Day.
Here are this year’s recommendations for ideal beauty products as well as must haves for your big day.
For Your Scent:
Falling in love is like being wonderstruck so it’s no wonder the aptly named perfume Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift is a fun and fabulous choice for brides this season.
For something lighter and more exotic, use The Body Shop’s Moringa body mist which truly smells like a light fragrance of rose petals.
For a stronger floral scent, consider Crabtree & Evelyn’s Somerset Meadow eau de toilette which also comes in a mini 12 ml perfume gel size convenient for your bridal pouch. This scent has a matching Bath & Shower Gel if you wish to layer.
For those who prefer an even gentler scent, a must have is L’Occitane Verveine Eau de Toilette mini 10 ml roller. Not only is a pretty, fresh, light, feminine scent, it also counteracts any smell from sweat you may get if it’s a hot or humid day.
For Your Blush:
The Body Shop’s Leona Lewis Shimmer Palette in shade Oh Deer! Blush gives a subtle depth to your cheekbones while adding a youthful shimmer glow.
For Your Face:
A true must-have is Joico Humidity Blocker Finishing Spray which forms a protective shield on your face to block out humidity and ensure your make-up and you look perfect longer.
For Your Lips:
The Body Shop’s Lip Gloss in Raspberry or Mango gives just a hint of freshness of your wedding lipstick.
For more intensity and deeper shimmer, use Crabtree & Evelyn’s Shimmer Lip Gloss in Honey Glace or Raspberry Pink.
For Your Nails:
OPI comes in some perfect bridal colours including chalk white (Alpine Snow), baby pink (Hawaiian Orchid) and oyster pink (Makes Men Blush). For a bolder, high impact look, try OPI’s Magazine Cover Mouse from their Couture de Minnie Collection. It is a red liquid sand with bits of pink and golden shimmer. The Minnie Collection also features a basic candy pink called A Definite Moust-Have.
For Your Memories:
Don’t forget your Guest Book and Memory Photo Album. We particularly love C. R. Gibson’s ivory leather set. The loose leaf Guest Book in style “Promise” is easy for guests to share their well wishes and the album in style Promise has Gift Record pages with numerical stickers so you can actually have a family member volunteer to enter all on the spot!
3 WEDDING DAY MUST-HAVES – 2013:
- Tide to Go for those unexpected emergencies
- Mouth Kote Dry Mouth Spray – perfect way to keep your breath fresh even if you don’t wish to eat and in order to protect your lipstick.
- Gnaw chocolate. Whether it is the Croc Bar with jelly crocs, Lemon Meringue, Crystallized Ginger, Banoffee Pie or Go Bananas, keep a bar of this decadent Norfolk tongue-in-cheek chocolate handy for any last minute panic attacks, stressouts or even second thoughts. One piece of this dynamo and you’ll feel both calm and ready to take on the world.
Next week our Wedding Series annual guide will continue with Best Urban Honeymoon Hotels.
