Why is wedding stationery important for your big day?

Choosing the right wedding stationery for your big day can sometimes be daunting, as there are lots of decisions to be made. Pearl Vine Print explains why wedding stationery is so important for your big day!

The main decision to be made are; what style am I going for - traditional or modern? What colour scheme do I want? What exactly do I need? A lot of couples don't realise at first how many items there are available to give the perfect finishing touches. As a stationery designer, I can help you use wedding stationary to make your big day as perfect as you always imagined it to be.

One of the first things to think about

One of the first decisions for a newly-engaged couple is to decide on the date. Once the date has been decided, you usually want to let your nearest and dearest know with a ‘Save the Date’. This is so important as it gets the guests excited as they can start to plan for your wedding, and also gives your guests their first keepsake of your wedding day. More importantly, it the first chance to set the theme of your wedding. There are digital options but a printed one will always be more special - there is something beautiful about receiving a beautifully designed Save the Date that you can keep forever.

It covers so many parts of your wedding journey

Apart from the Save the Date, there are so many other things to consider. Everything from the lead up to the wedding; invites, RSVPs - to the day itself; arriving at the venue, the Order of Service, welcome signage, Order of Events, signs for guest book tables, menus, name place cards, seating plans - the list goes on! There's nothing more exciting for me than a bride who has lots of ideas as the possibilities are truly endless! Budget will always be considered, so all ideas are achievable - no idea is too crazy!

It's a keepsake for many

I found personally that on my wedding day, there were so many comments made on a number of things. There were comments on the order of events which everybody loves to see to give them an idea of what was going on throughout the day. There were also the name place cards which the majority of guests kept as it was another special memoir of our wedding. Even with to the menus, guests wanted to remind themselves of the food options which is nice to have. If the couple go for individual menus then that's another thing guests can keep.

How do I decide exactly what I need?

Every couple is different and that's great for me as one day I can be designing a bohemian-style, floral invite and the next day a foiled, wax-seal invite. It depends on the venue, the couple's style and even the season when they are getting married. I always like to discuss with the couple if they have any ideas in mind and then take it from there, as most usually know what they'd like. I usually start with Save the Dates or invitations and then nearer the time they might want to look at their on-the-day items. I have house collections but offer a bespoke service for those who have a clearer idea of something specific they'd like me to design.

Finishing touches

The great thing with all of my collections being customisable is that there are luxury extras which can be done as a little add on. Wax seals can be customisable too and come in an array of colours. There's also vellum wraps, monograms (an emblem of the couple's initials - like a logo for their big day) and envelope liners to send out any stationery. There really are so many options and each decision is so important!

I think the key thing to remember is that everything can be done within reason and within budget. I also offer foiling as an option too for those who love a touch of luxury as much as I do. If you'd like to find out a bit more or would like to ask any questions about finding the stationery for you, please send me a message over on my website at www.pearlvineprint.com.

The 5 Trends Brides Can’t Get Enough Of For 2019

Every bride wants her makeup to be perfect for her big day, but it can be difficult to keep on top of bridal trends to make sure your makeup is on point. You may hear a range of different and sometimes even contradictory tips and even if you do finally get your head around it, how do you know if these “trends” will still be trendy by the time your wedding day actually comes around? 

Thankfully, makeup expert Natalie Hehir from Makeup by Nat is here to give you the trends for 2019 that brides can’t get enough of.

  Top Trends

Berry Lips

Bye bye nude! 2019 is all about making bold statements with berry coloured lips. Celebs can’t get enough of the pretty but striking confidence that berry lips radiate. It’s the perfect colour to add a feminine palette to your makeup. Finish berry lips with more subtle blusher in pastel colours for the perfect combination.

Dewy Highlight

Ever wondered how celebrities get that beautiful and healthy glisten, without ever breaking into a sweat? Dewy highlights give you the catwalk glow while you walk down the aisle. Make sure you use creams rather powder to highlight and give a natural glow.

Full Lashes

Let’s be honest, you may not get a lot of beauty sleep the night before your wedding day. All the planning, drinking, nerves - and even some tears - can result in a tired bride. Fluffy strip lashes can give picture-perfect brides the ideal frame for the eyes and draw attention away from any bags under the eye area. Quality is important here to give a high-end appearance.

Pink and Mauve Eyeshadow

One of the biggest trends at Liverpool Fashion week were pink and mauve eyeshadow. These shades have recently been making an appearance in bridal makeup and are the industry’s must have for 2019! For best results, apply a neutral base coat, then use a shade of mauve in the crease. To complete the look, use a highlighter just above the crease and in the inner corner of the eyes to apply the pink shades.

 


How To Get The Perfect Look

So now you know the trends. What next? Here are Nat’s top techniques on how to achieve perfect the look.

  1. Eyes first. Beginning with eye makeup first makes it easier to clean up any fallout before applying your base.

  2. Prime your skin. Perfect makeup looks best on good skin, so it’s vital to prepare the skin beforehand. I recommend beginning as soon as possible to make sure your skin is healthy and glowing for the big day.

  3. Good lighting is paramount. Many hotels have poor lighting which makes it harder to get the makeup just right. Check the room beforehand and use a ring light where possible.

  4. Best for last. The bride’s makeup should be applied after the bridal party to ensure it’s fresh and perfect. A good makeup artist should always allow plenty of time for the bride and then touch ups on the bridal party if necessary.

The 7 Bridal Hair Mistakes To Avoid for 2019

Wedding Hairstyles You Need For 2019 pinned by Jenny blog www.redeventweddingfayres.com/blogging/The-7-Bridal-Hair-Mistakes-To-Avoid-for-2019

The 7 Bridal Hair Mistakes To Avoid for 2019

It’s every bride’s worst nightmare. The big day comes along, your dress is perfect, the guests are here, everything is going smoothly, but your hair just isn’t quite right.

Bridal hairstylist Jenny Dold from Pinned By Jenny is here to share the 7 most common bridal hair mistakes to avoid!

Not Doing A Hair Trial

A trial is a must-have to make sure we choose the right style for you and your bridesmaids. This also allows the morning to run as smoothly as possible.

Not Consulting The Weather

What’s the weather going to be like? Some styles can depend on the weather. For example if it’s raining and windy I would recommend to go for an updo instead of the hair being down. This will stay in all day and you won’t need to worry about the weather. 

Not Considering The Dress

It seems so obvious, but it’s so common for brides-to-be to choose a hairstyle without thinking about complimenting the dress. For example a vintage style dress might suit classic Hollywood waves finished of with a headband.

Forgetting Accessories

As a hairstylist I always recommend hair accessories for the bride, bridesmaid and flower girls. This is a great way to get that extra special look for your big day and finishes of the look perfectly. Fresh flowers give a lovely finish, you can ask your florist to prepare them for on the day. 

Not Knowing Your Hair Type

If you have short or fine hair or just want a fuller look, hair extensions are a great way to add length and volume. Your hairstylist can help you choose the best look for your hair type if you’re unsure.

Not Preparing

I recommend my clients to have a fresh colour a week before your wedding day to allow the colour to settle nicely. Depending on the style and your hair type I always recommend to wash your hair the day before. A professional blow dry the day before is a great way to to get that extra shine for the perfect finish. 

Not Getting Inspiration

Don’t underestimate the power of inspiration. Consult Pinterest, Instagram and bridal magazines to help get a better idea of the look you want to create. Giving examples to your hairstylist can help to achieve the style you want.

Nat’s Bridal Crush 2018

It’s probably no surprise to hear that my bridal crush of 2018 has to be Meghan Markle, who stunned the world with her natural beauty for the Royal Wedding. Every detail of the wedding was perfect, from the dress to her bouquet but the internet went crazy over her flawless makeup. The makeup artist Daniel Martin achieved the perfect Natural Bride look, which even highlighted her freckles, causing searches for “freckle-friendly makeup” to shoot up on Pinterest in the wake of the royal wedding!

 Makeup Advice for the Natural Bride 

If you’re like me and you just love the Natural Bridal look, here are my top tips to getting the perfect makeup transformation:

  • Choose a makeup artist that can create a variety of looks and not just the typical “bridal look“. As every bride is different, a makeup artist with a varied style can help to give you the best look for your face.

  • Bridal makeup doesn’t have to be heavy, a good artist can create a “barely there” look and make you feel naturally beautiful. Remember you want to look like yourself on your big day, just an even more beautiful version!

  • Have your trial as close to your wedding day as possible to make sure lighting and skin are as similar as possible to get the best match.
