At first, I'd like to plan a secret wedding next year because I want it to be solemn and memorable. Planning one can be stressful if you face pressure from family members and from those who disapprove or are overwhelmed with unsolicited advice and suggestions. I want it to be secret so everyone special in my life can be present but without all the hassle and stress in getting to that point. But since, I just blogged about it, I guess it's not much a of a secret wedding anymore. LOL That said, I am leaning towards a small, private garden wedding, much more fun & less stressful! We are both very private so would like it to be intimate and personal. Small yet beautiful and memorable.
So this is how I plan to look my best on my big day!
1. Making a guest list. The shorter, the better. I want to celebrate one of the biggest days of my life surrounded by people who loves me. I'd like my wedding to be more like a celebration with close-knit friends and family, than a major, major production or stage show. When I have fewer guests, I can splurge on the things that really matter to me. I'd most likely splurge on the honeymoon, wedding dress, make up artist and photographer. Also, I get to spend time with my guests, not feeling like a stranger fulfilling a social obligation.
2. Looking my best
My hair, nails, makeup, wedding dress.. and how I look in that dress, are all part of becoming the bride I want to be on my special day. Since pictures taken on that day remain part of my life forever, it's important to look and feel my best.
So here's where I'll start..Starting today, I plan to use Asian Secrets Lulur Whitening Body Scrub as a daily morning ritual to smoothen and whiten my skin before the big day. That said, I'd surely look radiant and glowing on my big day! :)Then I'll choose my wedding dress in advance. I want a dress in which I can stand, walk and dance in without worrying about "wardrobe malfunctions" or causing me any kind of discomfort. I want a soft, dreamy and flowy wedding gown with a sheer touch of romance, and timeless elegance due to the ethereal Grecian goddess look. Also, I'd love to see my baby girl slash flower girl in a flowy white dress looking like a flower fairy. Here's what I have in mind.Next, I'll choose a classic hair style and try to practice the look I want at home or with my stylist before the wedding day. I want to keep it simple and classic.
My wedding cake would be simple, elegant with floral design, more of yellow flowers and blue birds. Of course, I'd surely love to have a taste test to make sure it will taste better than it looks. :) I'd love to see more hues of yellow and blue.. blue birds and yellow ribbons. And some eggs too 'cause my baby girl loves eggs so much!
Another motiff would be a garden wedding just like on fairy tales with a beautiful shades of purple.. with my baby girl looking like a flower fairy ina magical place so full of her laughter & whispers…with fairy wings & imagination. :)
I'll have my nails fixed professionally manicured the day before the wedding. This is surely one thing I don't want to do too far in advance. I want tips and toes to look pretty and simply make sure that they are neatly trimmed, filed, polished, and buffed. After all, my hands will be the focus of attention when showing off that new wedding ring and for photos!
Trial make ups or a test run and find the perfect makeup artist before the big day. I don't want to transform myself into a different person with dramatic eye makeup or garish lipstick. I simply want to make the real me look better on my big day!
Last but not the least, I'd like to practice a lot of sweet kisses..
the sweetest kiss to seal the magic & beauty of the special day…
Few nights before the wedding, I'll make sure to have enough rest and complete sleep. No partying before the wedding 'cause bloodshot eyes and a banging hangover doesn't seem so much fun to me. Well, I can always have the perfect wedding in my head, but something can happen and I sure hope my dream wedding won't elope with my groom. So far, this is exactly how i want my wedding to be .. Fun, sweet and insanely beautiful!
