This infographic was created by Danielle Bagworth, a fashion and beauty writer and an extremely excitable wedding guest (always the bridesmaid, never the bride). She recommends eden spa to any bride-to-be for a luxurious and relaxing spa break in Nottingham, UK.

The inspiration for this infographic stemmed from a Summer filled with countless wedding invitations. As a giddy guest, I often obsess about my outfit, make-up and hair and this made me think; what must the bride be going through? Therefore, I have provided 6 top tips and tricks to applying perfect bridal make up that will last all day long.

Custom Gowns for any Occasion (1)

Finding the perfect gown for that special occasion, whatever it may be, is always a thrill.  Not being able to find one, on the other hand, can be devastating.  Rather than exhaust yourself trying to find the perfect dress, why not have one created, that’s one-of-a-kind and just for you?

As a designer, this is one of my favorite endeavors.  Many clients come to me with a variety of ideas and styles, or perhaps pictures of a few different gowns.  Together, my clients and I collaborate to piece together the perfect ensemble.

Creating a custom gown is a lengthy process, but well worth it.  In general, the process consists of anywhere from three to five consultations over the course of three to six months.  The price of a gown will vary, depending on the intricacy of the design, but in general price ranges from  $1,200 to $4,000.
