This is a MUST. You can also work with your makeup artist. You can ask her for the best kind of sunscreen for a summer outdoor pre-wedding–something that feels light yet provides ample protection.

 

(2) Put on some mosquito repellent.

Summer brings out the critters we all hate, so it’s best to be ready with some mosquito repellent. If you don’t like the smell, try some essential oils too. Some oils help repel mosquitoes and smell good, too.

 

(3) Prepare fans and drinks.

A Sweet Church Union with a Gold and White Banquet That Followed

Melody and Jacky’s wedding day started out just how you would imagine–laughs and giggles with the girls during the morning preparations and sentimental moments as Melody got dressed with the help of her parents. But the as the wedding unfolded through Flowerspace Production and AP Studio‘s lens, you can tell that this was a day unlike any other. It was the beginning of Melody and Jacky’s lifelong journey together! This filled the couple with immense joy, so much that their happiness trickled over to all parts of their wedding. Their wedding details were also so elegant, by the way. White and gold details lined every corner of their banquet along with neutral flowers and dramatic lighting. We loved how the couple turned their indoor venue into a such a romantic scene. As a parting message, here’s a quick tip from the bride herself: “Do your research and understand what you want. And make sure you decide on how many dresses you need for the day. Or else, you’ll end up like me–having five dresses for the banquet but not enough time to get changed!”

    Etiquette 101: What You Need To Know When Hosting a Bridal Shower

    As part of the bride tribe, you (and some of the other girls) are tasked with planning the bridal shower. Before you start out with the planning, it will be best to acquaint yourself with the common etiquette rules for bridal parties. A good host should know all these and abide by them. Let’s begin!

     

    (1) Who takes the lead?

    Common practice dictates that the maid of honor (with the bride tribe backing her), a family friend, or a member from the in-laws hosted the bridal party because people found it in bad taste if the bride’s mom hosted the party. Nowadays, however, any person can host. In fact, some brides have several bridal parties hosted by different sets of friends – friends from work, friends from school days, etc. In the end, it really depends on who wants to throw a party for the bride; anyone can take the lead!

     

    (2) Who can be invited?

    The only thing you have to be careful with when inviting people to the bridal shower is making sure that all those you do invite are also invited to the wedding. Other than that, it’s really all up to you and what you think your bride will like. She might prefer a small, intimate gathering. Or in contrast, she might be thrilled to have everyone present. Connect with the bride’s friends to get in tough with all those who matter to her and whose presence she will appreciate.
