Pop the champagne, you’re getting married!!
Before we jump in, let's take a moment and celebrate this joyous moment in your life…
As young children, we dream of what our wedding days will look like, who will be standing next to us at the altar and what forever after will look like. Now that the time is here, soak in every delicious second of this journey you are embarking on, because it goes by fast!
People either love wedding planning or hate it, there’s really no in between. With so many details to keep track of, it's easy to feel overwhelmed by the whole process.
If you are the bride to be or know someone getting married, we hope this guide can help support you or a loved one during this exciting, yet nerve wracking time. We are all in this together!
House of Lashes is proud to be the preferred lash choice of brides and MUAs for all things weddings! Engagement parties, Bridal showers, the Bachelorette weekend, Bridal shower and rehearsal dinner…we’ve got you covered.
Here’s the Ultimate Bride’s Guide to Survive:
- Test out Different Styles
- Just as you try on different dresses, you NEED to try on different lash styles before the big day. Lashes will look different on your eye shape compared to how they look in the tray, so do yourself a favor and try it on! Flared, rounded, wispy, dramatic, this is the time to experiment and really get a feel for what you like best.
- Say Cheese!
Next, while you’re in the process of trying different lash styles out, remember to take pictures of yourself! Take selfies, have someone take your picture from afar, with flash and no flash. You have to cover all your bases. This way you’ll get an idea of what the lashes look like in photos (which is oftentimes different from what we see in the mirror).
Another important note to keep in mind - flash photography erases 50% of makeup… so if there was ever a time to go with more volume, it’s now!
- Keep Glue Handy
- …At all times! Our glue is waterproof, which is a MUST for emotional situations. Stress and happy tears don’t stand a chance with our trusty, award-winning formula! It even works as a necklace fastener! Check out this mind blowing hack: https://www.instagram.com/reel/Cc5uOoBveEg/
- Have Backups
- Because you just never know! You’ll feel better about having spares, more options, or being the hero if someone else forgot to pack theirs. And honestly having too many lashes is never a bad thing!
- Be Honest
If you are having your makeup professionally done, it’s so important to communicate openly with your makeup artist or friend about your wants and needs. Afterall, this is your big day and you want to make sure you feel comfortable in every aspect.
Eyeshadow too dark? Ask them to lighten it. Lash poking you in the eye? Speak up. Want more blush? Tell them. They can’t fix something if they don't know what the problem is.
We hope these 5 tips help to make your journey to the altar just a little easier. Remember that at the end of the day, weddings are about celebrating your love with the most important people in your life.
Don’t get too caught up in the details and just have fun.
Wishing you and yours a lifetime of love.
