Beauty and the Bride ... look gorgeous on your D-Day !

Love is in the air! For all those who are looking at tying the knot this wedding season, here are a few tips to look absolutely stunning on your wedding-day.

The preparation starts much before the D- Day. Ideally start planning at least three months in advance so that you can look beautifully radiant with a natural glow on your wedding day.

Three Months:

 Maintain a healthy diet... Consult a dietitian. Make a diet chart that suits your lifestyle
Knots And Hearts | Premium Wedding Planners
and stick to it. With each morsel remember that you will look gorgeous on your D Day.
 Meditate...Take time out for yourself, put on some soothing music and meditate for at least an hour. A calm mind will help you manage the wedding stress and also help you reduce the stress and tension lines on your face.
Exercise...Make an exercise regime for yourself. Walk, Run, Cycle or Swim – It is the best cardio that you can get. Remember to take up a toning regime as well. Pilates or yoga will be a perfect complement to your cardio.
Beauty Regime...Cleanse tone and moisturize with religious fervor. Use sunscreen every time you go out. Oil, wash and condition your hair every week to maintain the luster of your hair. Don't miss out on eight hours of beauty sleep. That is the best remedy for avoiding dark circle under your eyes.

Two Months:

 Hit the spa... A soothing body massage will ease out your worry lines and relax you. Perfect for a stress free mind and fit body to charm everyone on your D-day. A good spa routine also defines body-posture and will tone your skin. Four weeks prior to your wedding date go in for a body scrub and polish. Make sure you have a gap of at least 4-5 days between the last routine and your D-Day. It will give your skin time to heal and look absolutely glowing!
Perfect time to go in for the final fittings of your trousseau... You would be following your regimes in full swing and all toned up by now and looking gorgeous in preparation for your big day.

One Month:

 Make-up brands are of utmost importance... All cosmetic brands should be tried and
 and tested before application. Go in for a trial a month before your wedding so you know what works and looks best on you. Do the whole dry run, complete with hair and make-up.
Select a hair cut in consultation with your beautician... Your final selection should be in line with your D-Day hairdo. 
 The camera is the hidden ghost... It captures all the little details. Make sure you pose with a million dollar smile. Opt for teeth whitening via traditional routes or a famed dentist.

Follow these simple steps and come your big day you would look positively glowing and stunning … like a queen!

Choosing THE Perfect Venue for Your Perfect Wedding

While you have various plans and ideas for your special and extraordinary wedding ceremony and reception, in order to bring it all into a reality, the first and very basic step would be booking the apt venue. What you want in your wedding and how it is going to be executed could greatly be influenced by your choice of venue. Therefore, keeping in mind some key points could prove to be very important. Before starting your hunt for venues take a look at the points below to include in your checklist that will help you narrow down your choices:

·         An Outstation Wedding or in the Home City | Location
·         Small & cosy or Royal & Grand | Style
·         Family Only or Family, Friends and Friends of Friends | Number of People
·         Regular wedding in a Banquet Hall or a classic but Outdoor wedding | Venue
·         Local or Exotic | Food 
·         Local or Cost Effective or Exotic or Celebrity Styled | Entertainment

Once that you have discussed and fixed on these basics with your fiancé, your practical task of choosing an apt venue would begin. The capacity of the venue and the available facilities and amenities along with accessibility of the venue will be a part of some of your basic parameters while selecting your venue.

Make a statement with the perfect venue ! 
Once you have shortlisted the kind of wedding you want speak to a few friends or relatives who have gotten married in the same city you have chosen and take down some suggestions for them. It is very important that you meet a representative from each one of the venues and get a go ahead on each item on your checklist and are fully satisfied that it meets every criterion on your list, before going ahead with the booking.

Also, make sure you check on the hidden costs and any possible insurance they have against property damage during weddings. Yes! We know weddings are a lot of fun but things do tend to get broken, torn or damaged during a wedding and the bridal party has to go through a lot of heartache when they are presented with a huge damages bill.

Once you re completely satisfied…go ahead and book the venue! You have ticked off a very important element on your wedding list!
