Hair do’s and don’ts By www.promspot.com Don’t Fight Your Hair Curly girls want to go straight. Straight-haired girls want curls. Why fight Mother Nature? If you’re blessed with ringlets, don’t spend hours torturing your hair into a straight style -instead, choose one that enhances your natural texture. Run a lightweight balm that’s made for curly hair through your tresses to banish frizz and ensure you’ve got sleek, spirally curls. The same goes for those with straight tresses. Play up your sleek style by flattening things out with a straightening iron, or you can use hot rollers to create volume. Do Treat Your Locks Curly or straight, give your tresses some extra TLC to ensure maximum loveliness on your big night out. Find a deep conditioner that suits your hair type (heavy-duty for dry, damaged, or color-treated hair; something on the lighter side if you’re normal to oily). If your hair is in especially bad shape, get a trim to eliminate split ends, then follow a deepconditioning regimen with a concoction that’s

cool for frequent use. Limit heat styling, and detangle your strands with a wide-tooth comb (not a brush). Don’t Overstyle Avoid using too many styling products, like gels, pomades, or shine enhancers. Too much will overload your hair. And while it may seem like the only way to get your tresses to behave, the goop can leave you a greasy mess by the end of the night. Take the time to test out different looks and styles, using just one or two styling aids each time. Do Accessorize Whether long or short, up or down, play up your style with a killer accessory that complements your dress. If your look is glam and gorgeous, look for a vintage-style rhinestone barrette or hairpins. Got a more classic style? We love the look of a wide ribbon tied as a hairband to keep long locks from brushing your cheeks all night. And for any style, nothing can beat the glamour of a single flower (real or fake) tucked behind your ear.

Lingerie to match your dress SHEATH What to Wear: A Lycra or Spandex seamless slimmer. Look for one that shapes your figure from the lower thighs up to your midriff.

By Kathleen Murray www.promspot.com

The right lingerie is the key to looking perfect in your dress. Luckily for you, we’ve got the 411 on what underwear to wear no matter what your dress style.

DROPPED WAIST What to Wear: An all-in-one bra-and-girdle combo so you don’t need to worry about lumps and lines.

STRAPLESS What to Wear: A good strapless bra with strong underwire and firm elastic will work for you. Pick one with a deep plunge in front and a subtle push-up effect, and you’ll get the cleavage and support you crave.

V-NECK What to Wear: Depends on how low your dress goes! You may be able to wear a regular bra; but if the V really plunges, try petals or specialized adhesive bras.

HALTER What to Wear: A low-back corset that uses extra boning and stiff cups. It’ll give you the help you need up front but keep out of the picture in back.

A-LINE What to Wear: Control top underwear to mold your hips. It also minimizes your waist, tames your tummy, and lifts your fanny under this slimming style.

THE ONLY DISTRACTION IS THE VIEW!

Wedding Budget Traditionally, weddings have been paid for almost entirely by the brides family. However, today, weddings have become more of a “family affair”, with no strict rules as to “Who Pays for What.” Early in your wedding planning it is suggested you talk with one another and with your parents concerning the kind of wedding that best suits your style and budget. Be realistic. Set a budget you can afford and stick to it. Remember, you can have an exquisite wedding on almost any budget. It’s all in the planning. The following “Budget Worksheet” is provided for your convenience, to keep track of not only your anticipated budget, but your actual costs incurred, deposits paid and amounts still due.

Booking the Event Important considerations to think about when researching and selecting your reception venue • List requirements before viewing any possible venues • Location - decide approximately where you wish to hold the celebrations. Make sure it is convenient to as many guests as possible, it might be fun holding the reception on a remote island but it will definitely restrict the number of guests who are able to make it! • Number of guests - most venues will state the appropriate numbers they can accommodate. Too few guests and the atmosphere will seem unsociable; too many and it will be too crowded to circulate or dine comfortably. A number just below the maximum capacity will give a friendly, warm and sociable ambiance.

• Make a note of any other priorities. It could be anything from wanting a country environment or a wood beamed ceiling and log fire, to requiring a medieval castle to fit in with the theme or a colour scheme to match the bridesmaids’ dresses. If you wish to be married at the venue then you need to find one that is licensed for conducting marriage ceremonies.

Facilities you may wish to include at the venue: • • • • •

A bar In house catering Extra room for getting changed Accommodation for overnight guests Suitable arrangements for the wedding gifts to be viewed • Cloakrooms • Parking

Finding the right dress... By Elina Furman www.promspot.com Are you nervous about finding the right dress for your big night? Never fear, you will find it. And don’t even think about settling. Just use our list of tried-and-true tips to zap dress stress and help find the one. Get a Jump Start Unless you want to get caught in a shopping stampede, don’t wait until the last minute to start looking. If you’re not ready to hit the stores, check out some fashion mags to get an idea of what’s out there and what you like, and clip out your top frocks. Where to Go Malls, online stores, specialty shops -- too many options, right? So which way will you go? Well, that depends. If you’re big on personal attention (come on, we’ve all had our high maintenance days), a specialty store may be perfect for you: You’ll get sized, fitted, and fussed over. But if you know what you want, or if your cash flow is low, a department store or online shop is probably a better idea since they tend to have better deals. The Buddy System

What are friends for? Well, since you asked, to help pick out a party dress. Going solo isn’t smart. (It’s not much fun either.) A second pair of eyes never hurts. So go ahead and recruit a friend, your mom, or an older sis. PS: You know that old saying, “Too many cooks...” So remember we said to bring a friend, not the entire cast of Friends. The Total Package You know the drill: The right jewelry, shoes, and underwear can make or break a dress. If you have a favorite necklace or accessory you just can’t live without, wear it out so you can try it on along with any prospective dresses. You should also bring a pair of shoes in the heel height you plan on wearing for prom. It will help you see that dresses really will look like. And finally, don’t leave home without a strapless bra. Smile for the Camera Quick stat: One girl will try on an average of 20 dresses before finding the perfect one. That’s right -- you’ll be zipping through dress after dress. After a while, you’ll be lucky to remember your name, let alone what that two-piece number you tried on hours ago looked like. So unless you’ve got a photographic memory, you’ll need an actual camera to take snaps of your favorite frocks.

fashion guide 2012 Honeymoon Checklist The wedding plans may have been foremost in the planning, but the perfect honeymoon memories are not to be forgotten! Remember to make reservations well in advance so as to not be disappointed (depends on your intended destination). If a passport is needed, get it well in advance also, and make your travel plans in the same name as your passport to avoid confusion. Many couples plan to spend the first night of their honeymoon in a nearby location, and return the next morning for an informal brunch with family.

Photos It is said a picture is worth a thousand words, and so it is with your wedding memories. It is also said that this is not the place to scrimp too much since your wedding pictures should last a lifetime and more! After careful selection of a good photographer, you might want to make a list ahead of time of the pictures you would like and how many of each, and budget at this point in time. Your photographer will also have some good suggestions.

Finding a make-up artist From www.promspot.com Ask Around Your family and friends are a great source of information, and word of mouth is often the best way to uncover true talent. If an artist’s skills can’t be beat, you’ll be the first to hear about it. Pick up the Phone Salons often offer special makeup application services -- plus you’ll be in and out before you know it. But the top salons fill up fast, so reserve early to make sure you don’t miss out. Get a Sneak Preview There’s nothing wrong with asking for a makeover sneak peek. After all, you want to see what you’ll look like before the big night rolls around.

Know What You Want Clip photos from fashion magazines or grab shots of your favourite celebs to give the makeup artist an idea of what you want. It’ll give your pro inspiration (and it’s a lot easier than trying to explain it all!). Stage a Dress Rehearsal Happy with the finished results? Not so fast. Before you agree to anything, try on your dress to check how well it coordinates with your makeup. What works with your favorite white T-shirt might not look as good with your dress. Wear It Out Take a close look at yourself a few hours after a trial makeover to check how the makeup wears on your skin. Does it last or fade away? Check for color changes or allergic reactions -- then you’ll be good to go!

Check Out the Store Some tux rental shops have been around longer than you have. So before you plunk down your hard-earned cash, check out the inventory. Find an Expert A good formal wear dealer should be in the know when it comes to styles, sizing, and trends. If you’re not sure whether the sales guy is legit, ask him which is more formal: a peaked or a notched lapel? Correct answer: Peaked.

Avoid Clashing To match or not to match? That is the question. The answer? Ask your date. She might think it’s cute if your vest picks up one of the colors in her dress -- but she might also think it’s jaw-droppingly tacky. There’s no way to read her mind on this, so you’ll have to bring it up (and we promise, she’ll be super flattered you asked -- it’s a sure way to win points with her!). Deposit Required Most tuxedo rental shops will expect you to plunk down some dough to reserve your tux. Rentals average anywhere from $50 to $100, but the deposit (which covers any damages to the tux) will be considerably lower. So before heading out, make sure you’ve got some cash or a credit card on hand. The Complete Package The store you choose should be able to provide all the coordinating accessories. Ask your dealer if he’ll be able to get you a bow tie or neck tie, cummerbund or vest, cuff links, suspenders, and maybe even some shoes.

Questions to Ask Caterers From www.promspot.com You’ll spend more money on food than any other aspect of your party, so you’ll want to work with a top-notch professional. When making appointments to interview caterers, try to schedule a tasting of their wares at a later point. Don’t forget to ask them the questions below, which will help make choosing a caterer easier -- just make sure your taste buds have a say in the matter, too. 1. Does the caterer specialize in certain types of food or service? (They should provide you with sample menus to review.) 2. Can the caterer arrange for a tasting of the specific foods you’re interested in prior to hiring? (They should.) Schedule a tasting if you get a good vibe. 3. What is the caterer’s average price range? Are costs itemized depending on the foods you choose, or is there an all-inclusive flat rate? What would that include (linens, tax, gratuities, etc.)? Does the caterer have printed price sheets for food selections? 4. How involved is the caterer in a typical celebration -- does he or she work like an event coordinator/banquet manager, cueing the band, adjusting the schedule if guests don’t seem ready to sit down to dinner, and so on? (You will need to find someone to fill this role -- if your site manager or caterer isn’t going to do this, think about hiring an event coordinator.) 5. Will the caterer provide tables, chairs, plates, table linens, silverware, salt-andpepper shakers, and more? Ask to see these items to make sure they’re acceptable. Do you have to rent tables, place settings, and/or other equipment or will they arrange for the rentals?

want to be sure they will devote sufficient attention to you. You may want to pass on a smaller outfit who indicates they have another job or two scheduled for that day.) 8. Does the caterer handle all settings of tables? Will they put out place cards and favors? 9. Will the caterer provide wait staff? How many would they recommend for the size of your party? What will the wait staff wear? (Top caterers say they always use their own serving personnel, even if the site’s staff is available, because they understand the caterer’s way of doing business.) 10. Will the caterer be willing to include a recipe you provide, like a special family dish, or an appetizer with some sort of sentimental significance? Can they prepare vegetarian, kosher, or halal meals for some of your guests if needed? 11. Where will the food be prepared? Are there on-site facilities, or do you, the caterer, and the site manager need to make additional arrangements? If the caterer must bring in his or her own equipment, is there an additional fee? 12. Does the caterer work with fresh (not frozen) food? 13. Does the caterer have a license? (This means the business has met health department standards and has liability insurance -- make sure this includes a liquor license if you’re having a bar.) 14. Can the caterer provide alcohol? Or can you handle the bar separately? If you can provide it, is there a corkage fee? How and when do you get the alcohol to the caterer? If the caterer will provide it, do they have an inflexible wine list, or can you make special requests? How is this list priced?

6. Who is the main contact? Will the same person you work with when planning also oversee meal service on the day of the party? (You want this to be the case.)

15. How will the caterer arrange the food on the buffet table or on plates? Can you see photos of previous work displays?

7. Is the caterer working any other events or parties on the same weekend, on the same day, or at the same time as yours? (You

16. Can you speak to previous clients? (Get at least two references that had a similar number of guests and a similar menu style.)
