A Florist for your wedding... Flowers for wedding Lake District Florist

and now for the flowers... what on earth shall I choose?

A Florist for your wedding... Flowers for wedding Lake District Florist

So what about the flowers?
Lucinda says:

"Creating a 'theme' for your wedding can really help to bring everything together more easily, after all, knowing what you actually want can be the hardest hurdle when setting off on the roller-coaster ride towards planning your big day..... "

Alternative (REAL !!) wedding day hairstyle ideas continued...

and my top tip for your LOOK is... ?

Alternative (REAL !!) wedding day hairstyle ideas continued...

Be YOU on your wedding day... OK, be YOU but with bags of style... show the inner goddess. Forget the 'How to look like a bride' pages in that pile of mags you have now accumulated, how about doing yourself (and the groom) a favour, and looking like YOU - only of course the best YOU you can be !

Think RED CARPET, not bridal and you'll be on my wave length.

What's YOUR style... which words best sum you up... ?

 

soft & girlie

sexy lady

wild child

free spirit

classic, clean, chic

vintage twist

quiet, simple & shy

elegant & expensive

WAG wannabe OK-mag-style

Gypsy Wedding full bling

Don't know my true 'look' (need Lucinda !!!)

My advice - FOR GOODNESS SAKE BE YOU !!!

DON'T be swayed by your photographer / hairdresser / dress maker / friend / mother /mags & tv wedding shows to be a 'cut-out' bride... you aren't sacrificing yourself to the devil.... yes, ok it's kind of a ritual, and we all like a bit of tradition, but if GOK suddenly announced that to be the BEST bride, you had to tattoo each others names on a buttock would you do it ?

If your dress is simple, slips down over the body - no added anything, then go messy with the hair and stick a flower in...

if the dress is big and bling, keep the hair sleek and beautiful, pulled cleanly back with structure...

if it's vintage, do a softer vintage up-to-date hairstyle - no need to look like you are in the WAFS, or appearing in a 40's film...

Make the most of YOU, even if that means doing nothing - maybe YOU look best JUST how you are !! wash/blow-dry your own hair, use a bit of tinted moisturiser, apply dark brown mascara, addi a slick of vaseline to the lips, and pinch your cheeks before you go down the aisle...

what ever 'look' you choose, don't forget my top tip...

"Wear it with CONFIDENCE: walk tall with elegant confident posture, laugh, smile, be happy... and show everyone how much you love your man..."

stay gorgeous

Fashion and Beauty Writer - Make up Hairstyling Clothes Styling for editorial; Lucinda Hayton

Posted in Behind-the-scenes...

I've been writing for magazines and newspapers for over 10 years now, everything from make-up tips to shop-till-you-drop features... searching out the very best products to make us look and feel great...

Fashion and Beauty Writer - Make up Hairstyling Clothes Styling for editorial; Lucinda Hayton

I love being asked to write for a magazine or newspaper... whether it's my top-tips for make-up products to run along side a beauty feature, or a full blown before/after make-over/interview that I'm asked to style, write and put together. Having written my own double page column in a newspaper for 9 years I know what it takes to keep up to date with all the latest and greatest beauty products & fashion seasons out there... I love doing Q & A and answering the private messages these columns generate, where I can be more one to one. Thanks to all the editors out there who have believed in me over the years... a massive thanks to Jane Moore who did so much for me all those years ago... and to Joanne Colley who gave me my first space on her pages... where have the years gone ?

Stay gorgeous

fashion styling spring summer 2013

metallics, cut-outs and brights... so diverse, its Mad Max meets Madonna on the Star Ship Enterprise...

fashion styling spring summer 2013

'so what to do for fashion 2013 ?' they said, sat around their designer desks back in 2011... 'hmmm, there's a recession looming, its gonna be bleak, and the weather will no doubt be crap in the UK...

s'gotta be cheap, chearful - to brighten the mood, and as warm as spring/summer fashion can be...

ah yes; metallics ! wrap everyone in tin foil, like they do after a marathon... cut out a side here, a back or a shoulder there - so it looks summery.... and hey presto Spring/Summer fashion 2013'

If you are under 18 go for it, compete with the Darlics if you dare !

Oer 18? chose a metallic top with skinny jeans, or metallic skinnies with a loose slash neck fine jersey-kit top... you get my point...

stay gorgeous

hair styles for weddings (latest looks)

 

Come on, you've lived with your self this long, you've tried many styles and received different opinions from friends, you probably already know what suits you for a night out

oooh-er, but when it comes to your wedding, you kinda loose sight of who you are don't you

is the latest hairstyling really the way to go? or should you stick with your usual 'best' look ?

do you REALLY want to try something completely new for the one big day in your life that will of course be photographed for ever ?
