Fabulous Hair for Your Wedding:6 Tips
May 9, 2010

Having a bad hair day is never good. Not loving your hair on wedding day is the worst. That bad feeling is going to show through all of your wedding photos. So what’s a girl to do? Plan ahead! Below are six tips for achieving fabulous hair for your wedding:

 1. Get recommendations of stylists experienced in working with updos and   bridal hair. These stylists not only know how to style your hair so it lasts all day, but they also know you are on a timeline, so they typically work quickly.   

2. Once you’ve found your stylist, make sure you schedule a trial run about 5 weeks before wedding day. This is the perfect amount of time for your stylist to give you a quick trim to liven up your ends and make sure you hair is healthy for wedding day.   

3. Bring photos of different hair styles to the trial run. Also, don’t forget to bring photos of your dress. Certain hairstyles go better with different dresses. A fabulous stylist will be able to give you advice on what hairstyle will compliment your dress.   

4. Bring your veil, tiara or whatever hair pieces you have selected so your stylist can properly work with them ahead of time. And bring a camera! Your stylist is going to do over a hundred styles in between the trial run and your wedding day. By taking photos from every angle, and providing your stylist with these same photos on your wedding day, your stylist will recall the exact style you have in mind.   

5. Discuss with your stylist what pre-maintenance needs to be done in the days before the wedding. As an example, hair that is washed the night before is far more manageable than hair washed the morning of your wedding.   

6. Establish a hair timeline for each person in your bridal party that will be getting their hair styled. Different stylists require different amounts of time to get the job done. It’s better to find out in advance exactly how much time is needed so everyone can be ready in time for photos.   

Happy Hair Planning!

My New Year’s Resolution
January 14, 2010

I made several resolutions for the new year, and one of them was to get my own blog up and running. One new year’s resolution down and only four more to go! 

The second part of that resolution? To write a blog every week. As some of you might already know, I’ve been the wedding blog writer for Ponte Winery for some time now. I’ve enjoyed that role but have longed for my own blog. I will still continue to write for this amazing venue, however this is where all of my blogs will post regularly and some will reappear on the Ponte Winery wedding blog, Wedding Vines.

My third resolution? To get a professional camera so I can upload cool photos to go along with each post. Photogs….any advice on what this newbie should purchase? Hmmm…..tough decison! I came to the realization that I can’t have an amazing photographer with me everywhere I go….so the next best thing would be to get a professional camera and try my very best. Just the other day I was sitting with a bride chatting about her wedding over cupcakes and all I wanted to do was take a picture of the beautifully frosted creation! So, I have no choice, a professional camera is resolution number 3.

I will save resolution 4 and 5 for another time. In the meantime, I thank you for following me on my journey and I look forward to meeting up with all of you each week =)
