Kim's wedding at the Stone House!

This past March, our Bride, Kim, got married at the rustic Stone House in Warren, NJ. Kim bought her show-stopping gown by Augusta Jones at Exquisite Bride in Millburn, NJ. Not only was she so fabulous to work with, but she is also gorgeous. Kim is a wonderful woman and we wish her and her husband the best!

Tip of the Day: Create Your Own Wedding Website

Technology is the way of the world nowadays. Keeping friends and family members updated on news before the big event helps the bride stay organized and stress free. Most online wedding sites come with a RSVP tool and a section for you to blog about the proposal. And of course you can upload photos and video as well.

You already know family members will call up and ask: "What are the directions to the church?" "When is the bridal shower?" "Did you get our RSVP?" Dealing with the time consumption of planning a wedding and picking the right dress is hard enough; having 100 and something phone calls will only cause a headache. An online wedding website can be seen as your own personal assistant. Not only will you and your guests benefit, but you can share all the details of your wedding with friends and family no matter where they live!

Below are links to some great wedding personal sites FREE of charge!

Tip of the Day: Beauty

Even if you have perfect looking skin, the few days before your wedding is not a good time for a facial.Even good complexions may flare up under the pressures of wedding planning. Deep facial massage and manipulation can cause redness and bumps that may not go away in time for your wedding day. If it's in your budget, ideally it would be wonderful to plan several facials beginning at six months before your wedding and up to ten days before the special day. This kind of scheduling will allow your skin a chance to recover and minimize stress-related eruptions.

You will also need to decide whether you will have your makeup done professionally on the day of your wedding. If so, it's wise to have a trial-run at least once. If professional makeup on your wedding day doesn't figure in your budget, consider scheduling one or two visits with a makeup artist before your special day.

If you're comfortable doing your own makeup, the months before your wedding is a perfect time to learn all you can about the "look" you will try to achieve. Check out the colors and products you will need. Remember that you will be under stress when applying your makeup on your wedding day, so keep it as simple as possible in effort to make duplicating your look relatively easy. Keep in mind that a fair-skinned bride often looks rosier when surrounded by attendants wearing pink. Keep in mind your own skin tones and whether or not you will be tann on your wedding day because of the time of year.

Stay beautiful brides! :)

Tip of the Day

Ask a friend or family member to take tons of photos for you.

You may have hired a photographer, but the photographer can’t be everywhere. They also may have missed a great shot because they took it at a different angle. Besides, the photographer proofs are expensive to buy outside of what's included in the package.
