If you’re planning a spring or summer wedding, you will want to make sure you keep your skin beautiful and radiant throughout the cold months. Put your best face forward on your wedding day with these simple tips:
Protecting Your Skin from the Sun
Sunscreen isn’t just for the summer. The sun can cause damage to the skin, even in the winter. Always remember to apply sunscreen to exposed part of the body.
Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize
As the season changes, so should your skin care routine – you may find that your skin seems dryer than usual during winter. Therefore, moisturizing your skin is a top priority to ensure glowing skin on your special day.
Don’t Forget Your Lips
During the winter, lips can get chapped and dry very easily. Licking them will only make it worse, so be sure to always have lip balm on hand.
Don’t let your skin suffer throughout the cold months. Take care of your skin.

What’s a wedding without flowers? Beautiful bouquets and boutonnieres or bunches of blossoms at the center of each table – let’s face it – flowers are important. But the cost can quickly add up. So the question is – how can you pull off a picture perfect event on a budget? Here are a few money conscious tips:
- Opt for easy – look for local growers and blooms that are in season.
- Less is more – small flowers and smaller bouquets can create more of an impact, giving a chic and modern effect.
- Get more bang for your bloom – use ceremony flowers for the reception.
- Do-It-Yourself décor – considering a rustic theme, with vintage vases filled with fresh garden flowers and save hundreds of dollars.
Trudy’s Brides also encourages brides to bring their flowers to their consultation, as they will help when accessorizing their gowns. Trudy’s Brides also can help make recommendations when looking for florists! Call them today at 877-778-8659 or visit them online at www.trudysbrides.com!

Let’s face it – there are fewer things more exciting than shopping for your wedding dress.
It’s the one time in your life you should feel the most beautiful and your choice of dress can make or break that feeling.
So, before you get caught up in the emotions that come with dress shopping, here are a few things to ask during your bridal consultation:
- Ask about the fabric. Will it wrinkle easily? Unless you plan on walking directly down the aisle, this could prove to be an important component.
- Ask about what fit will best suit your body. It’s one thing to see a dress online or in a magazine and another to have it on. You want what will flatter you the most.
- Ask about the bustle. You’ll want to celebrate with your family and friends comfortably after the ceremony, not spend your time dragging around your train.
- Ask about your accessories. Some accessories can complement your choice of dress and some can diminish it. Ask your bridal consultant which will suit your dress best.
- Ask about delivery. Every designer is different in style and in turnaround time. Your bridal consultant should know the exact timeline for the average delivery and then you can walk away knowing an estimated time of arrival.
You’ve finally found the man of your dreams. You’ve got your beautiful engagement ring on your finger, a date marked on the calendar, and now, it’s time to shop for your dream dress…but, you wish you could lose a few pounds before the big day! One of the biggest challenges for any bride is losing weight in time for the wedding day.
Here are a few simple tips to keep in mind when trying to achieve this goal:
- Track your food. Keep a small journal handy and mark down what you consume. Seeing it on paper will make you more accountable and help with your motivation.
- Eat breakfast. It’s the easiest meal and also helps jump start your metabolism for the day.
- Drink your water. A little trick to keeping on point with this is to start in the morning. By the evening hours, you’ll notice you’ve consumed more by sipping on a water bottle all day.
- Make movement a priority. Even if you only start by walking a few blocks, moving is key to keeping your body burning calories. Choose the stairs or park across the parking lot when shopping.
- Get a buddy. Having a friend or loved one help you stay motivated is key to reaching your goal and sharing in your success.
