This romantic lakeside summer wedding at Steel Magnolia Barn was everything that they had ever envisioned for their wedding day.
Most people view bachelor or bachelorette parties as separate things. Now many couples are preferring to throw their parties together.
Your maid of honor is your number one. She has put in the pre-wedding time and effort to prove it to you, so of course, you want everyone to know that that person is playing an extra-special role on your wedding day. And while dressing them differently from the rest of your bridal party is a quick and easy way to set them apart, that might not fly with your wedding-day aesthetic.
sunscreen formulas are optimal for every skin tone. Especially for those with darker complexions. Whether chemical or mineral, many sunscreens are known to not completely disappear on deeper tones even after they’re rubbed in. When formulated incorrectly, opaque ingredients like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide can cause a white cast. These are clearly not melanin friendly sunscreens. Rather than go without SPF entirely, we recommend looking for formulas that include micronized versions of their key ingredients. Or melanin friendly sunscreens that incorporate the addition of masking pigments to avoid a ghostly cast.
Long gone are the days when bridesmaids had to be just that: maids. Today, having a best guy friend, brother, or even a business partner standing by your side at the altar is becoming more common. After all, if they’re your support system and close confidant, gender doesn’t matter.
You’ve been asked to play a huge role in your best friend’s wedding…being her maid of honor! However, this job comes with many important tasks…one of the most important being the the maid of honor speech. While this is a moment to celebrate your friendship, the idea of getting up in front of a crowd can be unnerving if you aren’t used to getting up in front of a crowd, giving a speech, but we can help!
While the two of you are the most important people at the wedding, half the fun is being able to plan and celebrate your wedding day with your nearest and dearest friends by your side as bridesmaids and groomsmen. While you might think its as simple as just grabbing your friends, assigning them a bridal title, and calling it a day, there are a few other things you’ll want to consider before you make the final selections on your wedding party people.
Thinking about writing your own wedding vows? It’s a tremendous undertaking to try and sum up your love, dreams, and promises for you and your fiancee in a few short minutes. Overwhelming as it can be, it’s well worth it. It’s a chance to tell your love story, give guests a peek into what makes your relationship unique, and share meaningful words with the person you love most in this world.
Once you’ve decided who you will be asking to be in your wedding party, you then have to narrow down your options for maid of honor. But how do you choose amongst all your close friends and family? If you have more than one person in mind who fits all of your Maid of Honor needs, you may find yourself wondering if it’s okay to double up. The answer is: Yes!
You’re engaged!! Your head is spinning with all the details. Then, you discover that the sun sets at 5:40 in Nashville for your late October wedding, and you planned on a 4:30 PM ceremony. We can help you select the best time for your wedding ceremony.
