Tuesday Tips: Choosing Your Prenup Stylist

August 13, 2019

After going through a lot of themes, you’ve finally decided on a concept for your prenup session. Next thing to ask is, who should we book to style us? Choosing your prenup stylist can be quite a tricky and big decision. You will let them conceptualize and style you for the duration of the shoot – which is why you need to really pick someone who will help you achieve the pegs you are going for. So here are a few tips on how to choose your prenup stylist:

1. Narrow down your choices by reading reviews

As the wedding industry is growing and growing, more and more stylists emerge. Needless to say, you will find a whole lot of people to choose from. To narrow them down, be sure to check out their social media profiles for client reviews. Checking their previous works will definitely tell you if they are legitimate or not, and if their clients were satisfied with their work.

2. Check their portfolio

Visiting their social media profiles to do a quick scan of their works will tell you if they’re the one to go for or not. Depending on your chosen concepts, some stylists just won’t fit your preferences. This is why it is important to browse through their other works first before booking them.

3. Consider your budget

Different stylists offer different inclusions and with this comes varying rates. Be sure to check your allocated budget first and consider your venue – as some venues charge higher rates and some stylists also have out of town fees.

4. Choose someone you feel comfortable working with

Unless you personally know the stylist, chances are, you wouldn’t know what they’re like. But your initial conversation with them will already give you a hint on their work attitude. You will be working with them for a whole day – or more, so it is important that you feel comfortable around them.

5. Don’t overthink

At the end of the day, always remember that clothes and accessories are not the subject of the photos – they are definitely not the highlight of the day. Don’t stress yourself out with unnecessary details. Prenup sessions are not a hundred percent about the clothes you wear, or where you took the photos. It is about you, the couple, who love each other. And this will be reflected even without all the fancy little things.

Your prenup session will not last for a long time, but the results will. Your photos will tell a story so make sure that you feel confident all throughout and let your love for each other stand out.

Tuesday Tips: Picking the Perfect Bridal Bouquet

July 9, 2019

Hi lovely brides! We know that choosing the right flower arrangement can get a little tricky. But don’t worry. For today’s #TuesdayTips, we’re back with a few things to consider when picking the perfect bridal bouquet on your big day. So here are 5 things you need to consider before choosing your bridal bouquet:

1. Consider your wedding gown

Before you go straight to bouquet hunting, look at your wedding gown first. If your dress already has plenty of frills, and frontal details, then your bouquet can’t be big on wild flower arrangements. Your wedding gown can’t clash with your bouquet. If your wedding gown has plenty of embellishment, don’t let your bouquet cover it. Conversely, a simple gown would look lovely with a big floral arrangement.

2. Size and shape

Bouquets come in all shapes and sizes! So if you’re going to walk down that aisle, make sure your bouquet complements your body shape. A cascading bouquet would highlight your body if you’re a tall bride. And if you’re petite, a posy bouquet would definitely bring out your charms more.

3. Know your flowers

If you’re into symbolism, you would know that flowers have different meanings. And you might want to choose flowers with the meaning you want to convey the most. For example, white carnations signify pure love, and daffodils mean new beginnings. While each flower has a meaning of its own, don’t get too caught up in this. After all, guests won’t come up to you and ask you what your bouquet actually means.

4. Your wedding theme

It’s important to keep in mind what your wedding theme is when choosing your bouquet. This helps specially in deciding which colors to go with – the colors that will dominate the whole event. Don’t you want your bouquet to be cohesive with the setup?

5. Your style and personality

At the end of the day, you will be the one who will be holding the bouquet. So it’s up to you and what you really like. What you think will look best for you. You will get to decide what you want to see during your wedding day. So make sure to choose something that you’d want to keep in your memory to cherish forever.
