Let me be the first to say I'm learning that I need to share these kind of posts (featuring our real clients much more often), I have so many great galleries that I can't wait to share with you all! Not to mention more rolling in each day.

We've been so blessed to work with many lovely brides and their closest friends and family, I'm happy to be able to share this tribute with everyone. Stay tuned for much more on this through the holiday season!

Which bridal look is your favorite?

One thing that our clients particularly appreciate is the itemized beauty timeline we create for the wedding day. When I reach out to collect all of the details and any special scheduling requests in order to make the timeline, occasionally, people ask me what I mean. Today I'm sharing with you all of those little things you might have not thought of, I hope you find this list helpful!

  1. People who always arrive late- we probably don't want to depend upon them to be present first thing in the morning especially if you have an early start time!

2. People who have a long commute- maybe we don't want them to start so early in the morning.

3. People who have other obligations or tasks to perform the day of the wedding- ideally, they can perform tasks first and we can have their hair and makeup appointments later in the day so nothing gets messed up.

4. Anyone with Allergies- so we can prepare in advance

5. People who live in the same household- a bridesmaid who is also the mom of your flower girls should have her appointments around the same time as her daughter.

Ultimately, I just need to know the important requests that we need to accommodate, and I don't need to receive a complete order from you. In fact, I need a little flexibility in order to work out your timeline in a way that incorporates my special tricks to make sure that your day runs smoothly.

The heat this summer is no joke! Aside from using iron styling and products to tame frizz, some days I like to just embrace it. For me, this looks like an area close to my temples that will always frizz and wave- and then not match the rest of my style about 10minutes after going outside. Then there's also the chance that curling iron waves will disappear and puff out- in this case it's nice to have a great accessory to still feel cute and put together when the humidity takes over.

I consider this the year that I've officially become a hat person. In addition to providing some welcome added shade, this hat covers the entire "frizz halo" and is a great versatile accessory for days spent mostly outdoors or running errands.

I love that this hat matches several of my outfits. I found it at express for around $40, and it also comes with a beige band (instead of the black).

If you've followed me for a bit, you might have noticed that I love brightly patterned scarves. In addition to wearing on your wrist, around your purse strap, or neck, they offer a handful of hair options, too! Here, I wear one of my favorites like a simple headband tied at my neck hidden away. I like keeping a bit of the front hairline exposed because the scarf helps to keep it perfectly in place and smooth.

Another trick to this look; keep the top of your ear tucked in the scarf- this prevents the appearance of ears sticking out.

Here, I knot a scarf (twice) in the front and then tuck both ends inside. This look helps me to smooth down and hide my problem areas. Plus, you can pull up the hair at your crown for some added volume that is held in place by the scarf.

Both of my scarves are from Anthropologie for about $30. These are last season's designs, but the brand has other great styles that are currently available.

Until next time, enjoy the summer!
