You know how when you have some big event coming up, you always stress a little (or a lot) about what you’re going to wear? You stress about what you’re wearing because you want to make a good impression.
I always believe that when you look good, you feel good. So, when we think we look good, that confidence shines out. On the flip side, when we don’t think we look good, we tend to shrink and hide and feel self-conscious.
And the same concept also applies to your wedding day. Because while weddings are all about feeling, you not only want to feel good, you want to look good too. Learn the 4 steps to ensure you look amazing on your wedding day and subsequently feel amazing too.

Most couples want their engagement to be a surprise, but not always the ring. You want your partner to love their ring And if your partner is particular and has their own style, you may not want to pick one out for them.
Many couples are picking the engagement ring together nowadays which is great because it ensures you’re both happy. It also allows you to create something custom or find something vintage or just pick the right setting. You’re spending a lot of money and you want this ring to be something they want to wear every day. But do you pick the ring out together before or after the proposal?

One of the biggest decisions you’ll make is what you’re wearing on your wedding day. Whether you care a ton about your wedding dress or you don’t care at all, you still want to be wearing something you like. Something that you feel good in.
A great source of inspiration to find your wedding dress is Bridal Fashion Week. You can see what you like and don’t like. And perhaps discover something you hadn’t considered, but might want to. You can also get great inspiration for your wedding design along with accessories, and hair and makeup. Here are my favorite designs and trends from Bridal Fashion Week’s Spring 2018 collections.
