“I had make-up trails before my wedding and none of them felt right, I was getting so caught up in “you can’t do your own make-up”! When I asked my husband he said he loved the way I look and how I do my own make-up, he couldn’t understand why I would stress myself out getting someone else to do it!”

“Curl all the girls hair the night before!! After each curl use a little metal clip to clip the curl. Do this with your entire head, put a shower cap on or tie a bandana or t-shirt around your head to sleep in. Don’t take the pins out until RIGHT before you guys walk down the isle! BAM super fresh curls! Use heat protected hair spray and you’re golden!!”
