Attention to detail makes
the day even more special
FINE DETAIL: Many brides end up with sore feet
from their wonderful wedding shoes by the end
of the night, so make sure you have another
glamorous -- but comfortable -- pair to dance in.
There are always those odd little details
in organising any wedding that are all too
Here are a few suggestions:
If you're getting married in a marquee
somewhere remote, don't forget the
Portaloos. It might be not the most roman-
tic thing to consider, but you don't want
your guests getting caught short.
Keep the flower arrangements on the
tables low. People will want to see your
faces at the top table and be able to make
eye contact across their own.
Make sure you have two pairs of shoes
with you on your wedding day -- gorgeous
elegant ones for the ceremony, and comfort-
able good-lookers for dancing in.
Remember red wine as well as white, and
soft drinks, juice, or non-alcoholic punch for
Always try a couple of different looks for
your hair -- your dream style might not
actually show you off best.
And wear your chosen style for a few
hours when you're trying it out to make
sure it's going to be comfortable.
If you're going to have a lot of children
coming along on the day, make sure that
you've organised a few fun things to keep
them amused and make it a special experi-
ence for them too.
A treasure hunt in the grounds of your
venue is a great idea or get them decorating
little wedding cupcakes.
Don't forget the marriage licence and
SMARTEN UP: A well-groomed groom will do his bride proud.
A little grooming is
good for the groom
While your wedding day has tended
traditionally to revolve around the beautiful
bride-to-be, there is no reason why the groom
shouldn't look his best as well.
A good place to start is with your skin.
Women grow up moisturising their faces, but
a lot of men have never been in cooee of a
face wash or moisturising product, despite the
fact that their skin gets as dehydrated as
anyone else's, especially if they shave daily. In
winter, particularly, skin tends to end up
damaged and lifeless, stripped of its essential
oils by wind and weather.
So, as far out from the big day as you can,
start exfoliating your skin twice a week with a
body wash for the neck down, and a facial
exfoliator, to get rid of dead skin and pore-
clogging dirts and oils. Then get into the habit
of moisturising your face twice a day to keep
the skin fresh and hydrated. Take care when
shaving to go in the direction of your hair
growth and finish up with a nice after-
Closer to the day, start to pamper your hair
with a decent shampoo to make sure it's at its
healthiest and glossiest for the occasion. This
is especially important if you use styling
products on a regular basis, as they will leave
residues on the hair shaft.
Finally, make sure your cuffs end at great
hands. If you just can't bring yourself to man
up and get a manicure, then at least tidy up
your fingernails and cuticles at home. Clip
your fingernails so that they look smart and
square, and smooth the edges with a nail file,
working it in one direction only. Use a hand
moisturiser to soften your cuticles -- the skin at
the base of your nails -- and push them back
neatly with a cuticle pusher. These are readily
available at your local pharmacy.
