Wedding Mood

Everyone knows that your wedding day is about more than showing off all the amazing little details. It’s about “setting the mood”. Here are a few simple ideas to get you to thinking about what kind of wedding mood you want to create at your wedding.

Live Musicians – This is the number one way you can add ambiance to your wedding mood, and with selective songs you can create the perfect mood for your guests to walk in to and continue to enjoy during your ceremony.

Cultural Elements – Adding a cultural element to your event is a wonderful way to ensure that you are “getting your guests in the wedding mood”. There are Indian flairs, Buddhist traditions, Historical trends and many other ideas in which you can select from.

Non-traditional seating – Creating a different seating arrangement at your wedding will make a lasting impression and definitely set the mood. Seating ideas include: Crescent moon designs that wrap around the alter area, full circle seating, and custom bench seating.

Guest Involvement – There are some great ways that you can give your guests something to do upon their arrival. For example: Guests can write a best wish on ribbons attached to floral picks that they can stick into your floral arch before they are seated. This is a wonderful way to get your guests involved and create a romantic wedding mood for your ceremony.

Custom Lighting – This is by far one of the most brilliant ways to set the mood to any event. The options are endless no matter if you’re getting married indoor or outdoor and there are lighting elements that can totally set the wedding mood to your event.

Whatever you do to set the mood for your wedding we would like to encourage you to be creative, and of course you can follow our posts for more “fresh ideas”.

Beauty Trick

Shape your brows.

A well-groomed brow is our first beauty trick can take years off your look. You just got to find a reputable salon in your area to help you obtain a nice clean shape that you can maintain. The cost runs $10 – $15. 

Aim for a flawless complexion:

Healthy looking skin starts with an awesome cleanser, toner and magic potion. Not all products work on everyone so we recommend that you ask your mom what works best for her. After all, this is where your DNA came from so doesn’t it make sense to ask your mom what she is using. One trick we use on sudden blemishes is to hold an ice cube directly onto the breakout for a few minutes. This is a beauty trick that actually works and it will reduce the swelling and minimize the pore, which will allow you to effectively use make-up to cover it.

Protect your face:

Protecting your face with an awesome sunscreen is the key to an even skin tone. Try these two awesome products. Shiseido Ultimate Sun Block Lotion, it’s water resistant and has a SPF 50 or Total Block Clear with a SPF 65. Both offer full sun protection and don’t leave your face feeling greasy. 

Target your foundation color:

It is important that you find a foundation color that matches your neck. Staying on the yellow side of the spectrum will make you look younger. Try Bare Minerals line for a more natural look and apply over Estee Lauder maximum cover foundation to successfully hide any imperfections. 

Create brighter eyes:

Have you ever heard of using white eyeliner? How about a light shadow on the inner corners of your eyes? Both of these works! The actual beauty trick is finding the perfect placement and color of shadow to pull it off. First Class Weddings recommends that you visit your favorite department store and schedule a free makeover at one of the counters. You can test out any new products and experiment with methods of applications to help determine what works best for you. And, it’s fun!

Take care of those lips:

Finally, don’t forget about your lips! Any naturally tinted lip balm with sunscreen is a must carry item. If you want to avoid chapped lips, try using Super Lysine Plus lip balm with 24 SPF on a daily basis.
