Wedding Day Fashion


Go with classic looks rather than trends for hair and make up and also wedding day fashion. You don’t want to look back on your wedding pictures 15 years from now and wonder what was I thinking.

Your make up should look as if you are going to a wedding and not a party. I have been to and seen many pre-wedding make-up sessions and sometimes the look that the bride prefers is one that is high fashion as if you were going out to the club. My advise, keep it classic and just highlight and accentuate what you already have naturally. He fell in love with your natural look why change that? Further you don’t want to deviate too much away from your natural features so that no one can recognize you.
