Wear something easy to take off.

You will want to change into your dress without ruining your hair and makeup. Keep in mind that there will be a lot of pictures taken before you put your dress on so wear something cute. Robes and button downs can be an easy and cute option, and can even serve as a gift for your bridesmaids.

Arrive with day old, clean and dry hair as well as clean and moisturized skin.

Day old hair holds curls and styling for a longer period of time. If you have very oily hair, wash your hair and let it air dry. Also remember to come with clean and moisturized skin. This allows for flawless and smooth makeup application

Bring food and water for you and your bridal party.

Being prepared with snacks for the long day ahead will keep everyone refreshed and energetic.

Plan any skin treatments at least a week in advance.

If you’re planning to wax or thread any facial hair or get a facial, do so a week before your big day. Sometimes an allergic reaction from the hair removal or the skin products can occur and leave redness and rashes. Give your skin time to heal before your wedding.

Cozy up!

February 20, 2015. Category: bridesmaid gifts, experience, photographer, weddings

As we prepare for freezing weather this weekend we hope everyone has some place warm they can curl up and cuddle! In the meantime here are a few of our favorite ways to embrace the cold; who says February can’t be the new May?

If your wedding falls in the cooler months make sure you are happy with your venue or hotel’s indoor portrait options in case it is too chilly to take pictures outside. We always say if you love your plan b you won’t have to use it.

If you are going to venture out for pictures make sure you invest in pashminas for your ladies, you don’t want to look back in your album an only remember that your bridesmaids were shivering.

Custom cups and sleeves can spruce up a coffee or hot chocolate bar. And never underestimate the power of a cute fur shawl!

If you’re a bride chances are you’re worried about what to give your Bridesmaids as a “thank you for dealing with me on this rollercoaster ride.” You don’t want the gift to be something they would never use again like a heart-shaped mirror monogrammed with the wedding date and the bride and groom’s names.

 Well ladies if gift giving is not your forte Tulla Belles has a fabulous one-stop shop for you. At Tulla Belles you can find monogrammed jewelry boxes (with THEIR initials), monogrammed luggage tags, adorable aprons, and more! Your bridesmaids will be forever thankful, and will be able to use their gifts over and over again.
