Bridesmaids rule! Your best girls, by your side, on one of the biggest days of your life – it’s a dream come true... right? Well, of course! They are your besties! But do take a little bit of care with your maids – they may have smiled through the making of the 3,000 origami birds for the reception, they might have traipsed happily around bridal boutiques every weekend, and they have probably spent lots on a special hen for you, so just make sure they get to enjoy the actual wedding! It’s tempting to give them lots of jobs for the day, but you want them to remember this wedding forever (and for all the right reasons). We know it’s a bit of a minefield, so this issue we’ve got help, advice…

Apply eye shadow and then two coats of mascara to your upper lashes. Sweep on your foundation with a large powder brush before adding a pop of colour to your cheeks.” “Give more lift and volume by speed-drying the root area fire” Hair KARINE JACKSON “Prep the hair with a heat-defence spray on the lengths and ends, and spritz some volume spray into the…

over to you*

Website wonders I just wanted to drop you a line to say how useful I found the wedding websites feature in your last issue. As I’m very newly engaged, I was a bit unsure of where to start with the planning, but your comprehensive list of websites has put me on the right track. My fiancé is complaining though, as I haven’t been off the iPad since! Lara Stringfellow, by email Will you be writing your own wedding vows?

bridesmaids confess all!

After the third bottle of fizz, the horror of planning the hen do was totally forgotten... CONFESSION # 1 “My friend’s wedding dominated our conversations for an entire year. The final straw was when I told her I’d broken up with my long-term boyfriend – her main concern was needing to rework her table plan!” Avoid the drama: Wedding planning can take over your life, but remember your big day isn’t such a big deal to everyone else (I know, right?!). Most bridesmaids will be excited for you and happy to talk over the details for hours, but it’s vital to maintain an interest in what they’re doing. Avoid relating all their news – good or bad – back to the wedding. Yes, they may be your bridesmaid for a year or so,…
