You can find the girls on Facebook here, twitter and on their website here. So you’ve found Mr. (or Mrs.) Right and the date is…

Wedding day survival bag

Every bride spends months, if not years planning their special day. From the dress, to the cake, right down to the tiny little details in the room. Everything is planned to within an inch of your life. Army majors have nothing on the planning skills of a determined bride. However, even though a bride plans for everything to go swimmingly, things can and will go wrong. That is why it is important to have a wedding day survival kit. On my wedding day, my sister and myself put together a bag that was kept in reception in case of emergency.This wasn’t a small bag, but a Ted Baker size plastic…

Six Month Clear Braces from My Dental: The Before and After

I am actually so excited for today’s post. Regular readers of the blog will know that for the few months running up to my wedding, I had a mouth full of braces and I think it is finally time that I shared with you the complete before and after pictures and post because the difference in my teeth, in my smile and in my confidence has really blown my mind.

Bridal Beauty Preparation

Over the past several weeks, quite a number of you have sent me messages asking could I detail what beauty preparation I did in the run up to the wedding. So many people find that the world of beauty throws so much at them in the run up to their big day, that they don’t know what treatments would actually benefit them the most. There is so many treatments out there, and to be fair while there are many wonderful treatments, there are many that are just looking to capitalise on the bridal market. Every woman wants to look her best at all times, but when it comes to your…

For some, the longed for wedding body comes easily. While the rest of us have a much longer journey to travel, to fit into our dream dress.…

With so many makeup artists out there it is hard to know which one will work best for you and make you look like the beautiful bride you always thought you would be on your wedding day. Even though I am writing about beauty everyday, I have found the task of picking a makeup artist extremely difficult. At least with the dress, I know more or less how I will look in it on the day and there is no chance of anything looking dramatically different. However, when it comes to makeup, you may…

10 Things people don’t tell you about getting engaged and planning a wedding

As many of you know, after over 7 years together, myself and Mr Beautiful Truth, got engaged last July in Florida. You would think after such a long time together, it wouldn’t have been the big shock that it was, but to say I was surprised would be an understatement. I think my words were “You’re joking” over and over again. Needless to say, we are both over the moon and very excited about getting married next July. However, since we have started planning, I have realised there is so much people don’t tell you about getting engaged and planning a wedding. 1. You will never be prepared for the…
