How to feel like a bride before the big day

, , ,

Is it just us or you get engaged and then you have to wait until the big day to wear your dress and feel like a bride? Girl, we hear you. You want that ‘they put a ring on it’ status from day one!

Well we’ve got just the solution for you. From adopting new hair trends to working on that perfect bridal manicure in a plush embroidered robe, here are your 5 steps to feeling like a bride way before your big day.


#1 Your Morning Cuppa

First up, let’s start with your morning cuppa. There is nothing more lovely than taking a moment to daydream all things weddings with a nice cup of coffee or tea. Flip through bridal magazines and make your wedding to-do list to get ready for the big day. And with most of the world currently on lockdown, why not use this opportunity to flash that ring of yours on social media with the perfect “Does this Ring make me look Engaged?” mug.

#2 Bridal Hair

One of the biggest hair trends for 2020 is understated & sleek – both for everyday wear and bridal looks. And what better time than during quarantine to spend some time testing different hair styles for all your wedding related events? From your hen-do, post-wedding brunch with families/ friends and your honeymoon, now is the time to get creative with your hair styles.

Romantic Wedding Hair Style

It’s always a good idea to also add something a little extra to give you that bridal edge and make you look extra gorgeous.  These timeless, sweet and feminine Hair Silks for example are handmade in the UK & made with 100% silk. A perfect alternative to a veil or statement for your wardrobe and something to keep forever. Use them to secure your hair in hundreds of different styles, from a simple headband, to a loose messy bun or even a sleek pony. These Hair Silks have been designed specifically to drape in this fabulous way and work with any hair type and length.

#3 Manicure fit for a Bride

That perfect bridal manicure never fails to perfectly highlight that engagement ring! Soft neutral shades of pink are usually the big winners as they don’t distract from the ring or the dress on the big day. But when it comes to wedding nails, there is no one rule for all, so if you want a pop of colour, go for it!

Firstly, make sure you regularly use a little drop of Apricot Oil to give your nails a little TLC before getting into bed. This will make your nails stronger and healthier in preparation for your big day.
