My Top Four Wedding Trends

My latest  post as featured on David Moore Wedding Photographer  for this post I want to share with you my top 4 wedding trends, that I am really liking. If you’re in the planning stages of your wedding these are worth looking at. 

The way a wedding is planned and the choices a couple make have totally changed over the last few years. Brides and grooms are more open to doing it all differently and stepping away from the norm of what a weeding day used to be and what guests even see it as. I think brides and grooms are taking more risks, being creative and are thinking outside the box. 

But always remember you do not always have to follow the trends. Find what works for you as a couple and go with it. Any questions just put them on the comment section.

Mixed Centerpieces:
Gone are the days when all centerpieces had to match. Play around with the designs e.g. different size vases, different styles of floral arrangements.

Move away from the traditional when it comes to seating. Have no table plan, no top table, mix up the style of table round, rectangle and ditch the chair covers. Go on and try something different. 

Personalised Cocktails:

This sounds very fun. Crate your own cocktail and have it served at your reception. Make it your first drink as a Married couple. How much fun would be the tasting for this one.   

Add an extra element by adding some cool signage to your wedding day. This can bring some quirkiness to your wedding or it can be a good conversation starter between guests, it can also be something very special like a quote that means something special to you as a couple.

Flormar Revolution Lipstick In Burgundy Mission

I was delighted to receive a sample of the Revolution lipstick in burgundy mission, along with the lip liner to match. These were Kindly sent from RDC Communications. Flormar was launched this year in Ireland and it has proven to be a huge success and a popular choice for those who want affordability and quality. 

I tested this lipstick out over Christmas, as I am trying to be more adventurous and try out stronger colours, as I normally tend to stick with nude tones. This lipstick is a rich berry colour with blue undertones, having these undertones makes your teeth appear whiter.  
"Revolution is Flormar premium lipstick containing shea butter, cocoa, olives, a super pigment and easy 8 hr staying power".
Application Tips:
Before application ensure your lips are in good condition especially in this harsh weather. Exfoliate to remove any dry skin and apply vaseline regularly to keep them conditioned. I applied setting powder to my lips before application, this can help prolong …

Finally Contouring is getting the push

Anyone else as happy as me to see that contouring is not as popular in the makeup world. I personally could never get used to it. I think it looks amazing in photographers or on a night out when done right. If you prefer a more heavy look. I believe strobing has been around before it was just called highlighting then. So do not be confused!!!

For me I prefer a more natural look when it comes to makeup. The whole idea with strobing is that you can see the skin and it is not heavily covered up. 
I have been using the Mac Strobe Cream for a few months now. You can also strobe with powder.

What I like about Mac Strobe?

It makes the skin look radiant,fresh and healthy (for tired Mammies like me it's a must) It's easily applied. It's a no fuss product, there is no messing with it. It can be worn alone or added after foundation is applied. With some blush you are good to go.

Think about this, have you ever gone to a wedding and after dinner all you want to do is take off your heels and wear something more comfortable so you can dance the night away or have you only wished that you had of brought the hair clips and hairspray that you left at home...I know I have for sure, so do not let your guests go through these traumas at your wedding.
