Real Brides Share Their Biggest Big Day Beauty Regrets

“While I still really love my big day beauty look, I feel like it was a bit subtle—like how I do my makeup for a big night out. I was so worried about not looking too dramatic or over-the-top, that I told the artist to focus on a natural look and downplay my makeup. Now, I actually feel that I should have done a little bit more. It’s not a regret really, but something I maybe would have done a little differently, or at least played around with a bit more.”

“I hate to say it, but I hated my hair. The clip-in extensions were a totally different color than my own hair! I didn’t want to be a bridezilla, so I didn’t focus on it. My stylist told me we didn’t need to dye the extensions to match, but we really did. I think she was being lazy. In some my photos, you can see the two-tones and it’s so annoying. (I don’t share those!)”

“I don’t have any beauty regrets from my big day, but I almost did. My husband had mentioned how he loves my hair down, so I was dead set on keeping it down for the wedding. At the last minute, I came across a photo of a bride who had her hair in a simple high bun and I loved it. I knew it was risky to change my mind so last minute, but I went with my gut and I am so glad I did. I loved my look.”

“Looking back, I didn’t really love my makeup. I used a girl that everyone else I know had used, and I feel like their results were just better than mine. I had my makeup done before for other people’s weddings as a bridesmaid or for other special events, and think it turned out way better.”

"I regret not having two different hair looks for ceremony and reception. I loved having my hair down for the ceremony, but I wish that I did an updo style for the reception since I was soooo hot. I got married in July, so twirling around on the dance floor in two weaves wasn't fun!"

"I hired a hairdresser who I did not know very well and, although my hair looked nice, I would have liked it to look a little better. Make sure you have many trials and really, really trust your hairdresser. Now is not the time to go with someone new!"Read more at:wedding dresses melbourne | wedding dresses online

How to find the best bridal dance lessons in Sydney

The first dance as a husband and wife is a moment that will be treasured forever. However, it is often an event that can bring up anxiety for some, as many brides are not confident with their dancing skills.

Therefore, finding the best bridal dance lessons in Sydney is so important. By having some lessons, a couple can look natural and confident on the dance floor, and truly embrace the special moment. This article will explain how to find the best bridal dance lessons in Sydney, so the first dance can be the highlight of the evening.

What style of dancing is needed?

When looking for lessons it is important to establish what style of dancing is needed. As Sydney is a very multicultural area a wedding may be a traditional Indian wedding, a Greek wedding or something entirely different.

The theme of the wedding will influence what style of dancing will be occurring and so what types of lessons are needed. Once a style has been chosen, then it is easier to find a dance school that specialises in that niche.

Even if a wedding does not have a certain theme, it is still important o know what type of dancing is wanting. A bride may want a more elegant dance with ballroom influences or may want something fun and silly like hip-hop. Whatever the desires, it must be decided first before finding a company that will fit.

What is the timeframe?

When looking for bridal Sydney dance lessons it is key to know the timeframe. There is no point approaching companies without this knowledge as they won’t know if they have time in their schedule or not.

Figuring out when the wedding is going to be as well as an ideal time frame for lessons is a huge advantage. It is also a good idea to decide on lesson frequency e.g. weekly, fortnightly or monthly. This way no time is wasted when approaching relevant businesses in Sydney as a straight up no or yes can be given right away.

Furthermore, it is important to book lessons as far in advance as possible. While of course, quick weddings do happen, it is less likely to end up in disappointment if booking are made very early on. The best companies are in high-demand and some may even have a wait list so remember to book lessons as early as possible.

Price shop

As soon as the word ‘wedding’ is mentioned, prices tend to go through the roof. Having said this, it doesn’t mean that a bride has to settle on the first quote given. It is wise to get a few ideas of costs from a few different companies to ensure that nobody is getting ripped off.

On the other hand, if a company is priced well below others they may not be the best quality. Aim for a business that offers a price range somewhere in the middle for the best chance of finding a great company.

Have a trial lesson

Companies that go above and beyond will offer trial lessons before any dance packages are bought. A great idea is to set aside a week or fortnight and book in a few different lessons to see which ones are best suited.

If a website does not have a trial option, then give them a call to see if they offer one. If they do not then it is perfectly okay to walk away. After all, a lot of money will be spent, and everyone wants to find the best lessons they can.

Check reviews

Checking reviews is another great way to find out how good a company is. Check posts that the business is tagged in on Instagram and Facebook to see if they have previous happy customers.

A Google search for reviews will reveal a lot and of course, word of mouth is often the best way to decipher if people are happy with a certain company. Before deciding on who to choose, it is a wise move to read reviews and testimonials first.

Choose someone you connect with

At the end of the day, the price, style, and timeframe may all be right but a bride must connect with the teacher. Again, finding this out in a trial is a great way to decide if a connection is made.

A good teacher will make someone feel comfortable but still give valuable feedback. A great teacher will have realistic expectations, while still making the experience fun and ensure the bride feels special.Read more at:vintage wedding dresses | wedding dresses adelaide


The Disappointing Truth Ring Bearers Have to Live With

I remember when my brother was a tiny page boy—er, ring bearer—and my family sat in rapt attention as he performed his noble duty of walking steadily down the long aisle, pretending to balance a thousand dollars worth of gold that symbolized eternal love on a slippery pillow. It's no wonder he soon upchucked all over his rented child's tux—the nerves must have gotten to him!

The closest ancestor of the rather recent American invention of the ring bearer is the page boy, who was required to carry the queen’s train when she walked down the aisle since (obviously) it was “too heavy for the bride to walk with on her own,” according to wedding historian Susan Waggoner. Thank goodness my brother only had to carry the imaginary rings; if he had to haul 20 feet of the finest imported satin and then hurled all over it, the laundering bill would have consumed his college savings!

I asked my brother to recall the events of that fateful day. He begins by nonchalantly saying he doesn’t remember much because it was 19 years ago and and he was only six, then dives into the specifics. “I thought it was exciting to dress up and war the tux and felt bad I ruined it,” he says. “I was supposed to dance with someone—I can’t remember if it was the flower girl, bride, mom, or someone in the bridal party—and I was excited about it. But I didn’t get to do it because I was in the basement during the whole reception, just in my white undershirt laying on the couch.” No Macarena, no chicken dance, nothing. Then he even dares to get a bit petty (but who among us wouldn’t in his circumstance?): “Also pretty sure I was called the ‘ring bear,’ not ‘bearer,’ and thought it was kind of strange.” Precocious children run in my family.

Now the unfortunate details leading up to the actual upchuck episode could have happened to any single one of us. After all that pressure to deliver as a mere first grader who could barely count to ten, he needed something to take the edge off. He sat down for the reception, and what was before him but two truffles packaged so delightfully with the phrase, “love is sweet.” Love is sweet, he thought, stuffing both chocolates into his mouth at once. And in mere minutes love spewed out all over the place settings and table cloth, which my dad quickly taco’d and disposed of.

I decided to run this story by my dad to see if it’s an accurate account. My dad’s response was: “I just remember it happening and being like like holy s**t!!! Didn't see that coming!!!!” I personally recall my dad trying to conceal the state of the tux upon returning it to the rental company and asked him if that was true. “I don’t recall,” he parrots the futile refrain of all powerful white men.

Waggoner writes that ring bearers’ “function has become largely decorative” and they “are not essential elements of weddings.” Say that to the sad little boy laying in the basement, Ms. Waggoner! What I want to say to my brother is: you are not alone. Just listen to these other accounts!

Myca says she asked her two nephews to be ring bearers, carrying vintage books with ribbon, and she was later informed that her oldest nephew was disappointed when he learned he had carried a fake ring down the aisle: “A few months later I let him hold my wedding ring, and he was so happy! I had no idea he felt like that. I guess he really wanted that responsibility.” Hope experienced something similar with her nephew, who was ”upset and embarrassed because he didn’t carry an actual ring down the aisle in my sister’s wedding.” So when Hope asked him to be her ring bearer, she assured him he would certainly carry her rings. “He made it all the way to the best man, dropped the box on the ground when he was handing it over, and left it!” Talk about a mastermind of revenge; I need to meet this kid!

Laura’s nephew carried a Poké Ball ring holder down the aisle: “After the ceremony, he freaked out when he opened it and it was empty. We had to reassure him that the rings were safe and he had done his job well.” Jenn’s ring bearers “forgot to sit down and stayed standing with all the groomsmen being very alert in their ‘roles!’”

All these kids are taking their jobs super seriously, and they are totally being punk’d. It’s like they think they are competing in the Olympics, but all the viewers know it’s just little league. The transaction is clear for flower girls, who pretty well know that they’re there to look cute, (what else are women good for?). And that is something they totally can’t mess up, cuz baby, they were born with it. Meanwhile, the boys are under the impression that they are basically being entrusted to manage our investment portfolios, but our accounts are filled with Monopoly money. Imagine thinking you’re the wolf on Wall Street and finding out you’re just trading paper money for plastic houses; you might just toss your cookies, too.Read more at:Yellow Bridesmaid Dresses | Pink Bridesmaid Dresses
