Invitations That Won't Break The Bank

Invitations can be extremely costly, but these two from the web site are elegant but won't break the bank.  So if you don't want to make your own invitations these are a good option for keeping your costs down but still having a quality invitation and response card.  Add a lined envelope, this inexpensive upgrade adds a touch of class without breaking the bank.  These aren't the only gems on this site, so take a look and see if you can find the invitations of your dreams.

Consider Having Your Wedding Makeup Professionally Done.

Many brides decide to scrimp by not hiring a makeup artist to apply their makeup on the wedding day. Getting your makeup done on this special day is all part of the pampering every bride deserves. It will also help the bride relax and give her confidence that she looks her very best. Your weddng day makeup should be different from your everyday street makeup becaus it's not everyday you are wearing a long white lace gown and making vows to spend the rest of your life with the love of your life. Have the artist emphasize but not overdo you eyes and best features so they are shown off in your photos and video of your big day. Pluck eyebrows or wax them the day before your wedding. If you or a makeup artist do them the morning of the wedding, it may leave redness that will show up in your photos. Consider a lipstick that has staying power and waterproof mascara. All those kisses and sips of Champagne will leave you little time to reapply your lipstick and you don't want to spend your wedding reception in the ladies room reapplying lipstick. Give yourself plenty of time so you and your bridesmaids have time for last minute checks and a quick lunch before your wedding.
