Wedding Wednesday…Reception Planning and Makeup


November 17, 2010

Have you missed me blogging all about the wedding? I’m sure some of you are gagging right now as I elaborate on the intricate details, but we all are aware that I am an OCD bride that wants everything to be perfect on my magic day. {and yes I know, I have already been told something is bound to go wrong, to which I say, “that is why I have a wedding planner”–haha}
This afternoon, Mom and I are headed to meet the fantabulous Amy Lynn Larwig at Nashville StudioWed to discuss all things makeup. This is one area I haven’t thought too much about when people ask “how do you want to look on your wedding day?” Well, I am most certain that I want to look like me… and by that, I mean I want to look like the best version of me–does that make sense? I want to incorporate soft pink/rose-colored lips, false eyelashes {yes, I heart them!}, and eyes that pop…wish us luck and let me know if you have any advice in this area.
Here is a look at some celebs’ makeup that I absolutely love–inspiration if you will:

Tomorrow afternoon is the BIG reception planning meeting… I am so nervous I could scream! This is where we talk about anything and everything reception-related so I have been in preparation mode to get my thoughts and ideas in order–and with that, plenty of inspiration boards as if you’re surprised. 😉

Here is a small peek at some inspiring touches and details we’ll be
discussing with everyone at aVenue tomorrow…
Other course there are plenty of other details {favors, decor, creative ideas and design elements, etc.} I would LOVE to share with all of you, but I have to keep some things secret until next June… can’t go giving away all my secrets now can I?? Happy Wednesday friends!!

    Love your inspirations!! It is all going to be perfect!! You know, I was sure I would run into something during the wedding, but minus my little bridal breakdown before the rehearsal… everything was perfect. So it can happen, and I'm sure it will all be perfect for you as well!


  2. Everything looks grogeous! I, too, was an OCD bride… and with that being said, your wedding will be magical because YOU were hands on in every way. Continued fun!

    Gorgeous!!! I know it will be beautiful!!!

  4. I bet wedding planning is SO much fun!!!

  5. I had the airbrush foundation done for my wedding day and I absolutely loved it! It was soo flawless all night! I was def the OCD bride who had a garden wedding and 30 minutes before we were put under a Tornado Warning! haha! Can't wait to see more details

    I'd definitely put a lot of thought into your hair/makeup. That's something I wish I would've focused on more leading up to the wedding. And if you're not happy with the style/products, don't be affraid to change vendors! It's the one thing that you'll look at over and over (in your pictures) and you want to love it!

  8. I love that look with the flowers and the branches coming out of it..so elegant and beautiful!
