The bride and her bridesmaids – Photo Inspiration

PHOTOS: Shyla Nico And Emmanuel Nwobi Glamorous Bridal Shoot

What will a party be or a wedding be without your girls cheering you on to the aisle. From the proposal, to bridal shower, introduction, traditional wedding and the big day; your wedding day.

Bridesmaid are unwed young women who are member of a bride’s party. Usually they  related to the bride (friend or family). They are always there giving you their support, prayers and love. What can a bride do without her model like bridesmaid. I say nothing, absolutely nothing.
Here are collection of pictures showing the bride and her friend.  I hope the pictures are a source of inspiration to you on you big day.
Enjoy & ciao for now.

KEEP THE SKIN RADIANT FOR YOUR MARRIAGE, LEARN HOW

gorgeous-skin

When it comes to great skin, the nutrients you put in your body are as important as the creams you put on it.

 Today, we focus on how to keep that skin of yours glowing and radiant for much longer than your wedding day.
1. A cup of green tea a day keeps the wrinkles away
Victoria Yoffie, integrative wellness practitioner and founder of YoffieLife.com says “The catechins (a type of antioxidant) in green tea boost blood flow and oxygen, which improves important nutrient delivery to the skin. The result is smoother and more elastic skin. And promising studies reveal that a combination of green tea and sunscreen enhances sun protection. The higher the quality of the green tea — think loose leaves over pre-packaged tea bags — the more potent the effects.”

2. Bone broth is big these days. And with good reason, says Be Well Health Coach Katrine van Wyk. “Bone broth (from beef, chicken, lamb or fish) is a rich source of collagen — the main structural protein of connective tissues. Collagen helps to both improve the elasticity of the skin and fight wrinkles. Bone broth also boasts great healing properties for the digestive system. We know there’s a strong connection between the skin and our digestive system — so taking care of it will ultimately also lead to healthier looking skin!”

3. Fat can be your friend, says Yoffie. “Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats — health-supportive fats — act as natural moisturizers to keep skin supple and glowing. Add half an avocado or a quarter cup of pumpkin seeds to your next salad or add 3 ounces of salmon or mackerel to your weekly meal plan.”

4. Check into the triple-crown benefits of chia seeds, incorporating them into smoothies, mixing into oatmeal or adding to almond milk to make chia pudding. The takeway? Super-seed chia “Fights both inflammation and puffiness — plus, it improves digestion,” says Tricia Williams, culinary holistic nutritionist at foodmattersnyc.com.

5. Drink your greens. “Dark, leafy greens like spinach, kale, Swiss chard and collard greens are loaded with minerals and vitamins — and are full of protective antioxidants that help our cells fight off damage from pollution, says van Wyk, author of Best Green Drinks Ever. “Greens also help reduce inflammation, which can calm any skin irritation and acne. A green juice loaded with leafy greens, some cucumber, lemon and just a small amount of fruit is a perfect pick-me-up for the skin!”

6. You can indulge your sweet tooth and benefit your skin, says Yoffie. “Cocoa flavanols, powerful antioxidants in dark chocolate, protect the skin from cellular damage caused by free radicals and help make the skin firmer, smoother and softer. For the best results choose chocolate that contains at least 70 percent cacao and to keep any extra pounds from appearing on your waistline while still reaping the benefits, limit your intake to a 1-ounce portion or the equivalent of 150 calories.”

7. Start at the top — and improve your scalp and hair. “Blueberries are well known for their powerful anti-aging properties, but they’re also rich in vitamin C, which is critical for circulation to the scalp and healthy hair follicles,” says Rebecca Fuller, RD, dietician, Fashion Institute of Technology and Coles Sports Center at NYU. “Increased circulation to the scalp aids in preventing dandruff, psoriasis, and other scalp conditions, as well as promoting faster hair growth. It can take approximately three months for dietary changes to show up in your hair, so be patient and enjoy the other benefits of blueberries, such as improved memory and improved blood pressure.”

9 Actions After The Wedding Party

9-mr-and-mrs-sign

In the first few weeks after all the wedding festivities wind down, your big day is still probably all you’ll be able to think about. You’ll want to ride that post-wedding high for as long as possible, but then, before you know it, you’ve been married for six months… and there’s still a pile of unused wedding favors sitting on your kitchen table.

Here are 10 things you’re going to want to take care of before your first anniversary rolls around.

1. Send out thank you notes.

2. Have your wedding dress cleaned and/or preserved.

3. Order your wedding album.

4. Review your vendors.

5. Return or exchange any unwanted wedding gifts.

6. Purchase any gifts you didn’t receive (and still want).

7. Take down your wedding website and registry. 

8. Return any items you bought for the wedding and didn’t use. 

9. Legally change your name.

Have you been putting any of these tasks off post-wedding?

Inform others not to make the same mistakes.

Can I Propose at Someone’s Wedding?

will u

This requires deep thought and we must be reasoned from the perspective of the couple.

To nurse this thought at all; you must be one of the couple’s closest friends and most likely on their bridal/groom’s train if they are having one. Or maybe a very close relative. If you do not have a close relationship with the couple and you are not sure how they will react, it is best not to do it.
However, if you are close to them; I think you should tell each party before the day; so, you know if they wouldn’t mind.

Secondly, you need to bear in mind that the wedding day is primarily a day to celebrate the love of the newly married couples and in as much as it isn’t a taboo to have a new one commence and might also be considered an honor; I think you shouldn’t be too selfish to want to do that. Let it be all about them.

More so, a proposal most of the time takes time. The process starts with the man asking, to the shocked silent lady, to everyone waiting for an answer and finally to the celebration of the new engagement. This will automatically take a huge bite on the program lined up for the couple, and they might have to scrap some because of the time factor. Especially for venues that are time-based.

Still, if I am the couple; will I be angry if a distant friend or family member proposes or get proposed to on my day?
I would say No.

No, if it won’t cause too much distraction like having your special rented drummers, getting a convoy and all to invade my wedding!!! and all the guests keeps talking about that experience and almost too exhausted emotionally to continue facilitating with my husband and me.

In conclusion, I don’t think it’s okay to propose at someone else’s wedding because it could go wrong. What if she says NO? The wedding almost becomes sour.

Just don’t do it.
