Wedding Hair & Makeup Tips From a Pro

We are so happy to have Kali Chris as a guest posting today and telling us the best and most fabulous trends in wedding hair and make up this year. Plus she is doing one awesome giveaway so read on!

Wedding hair and makeup 2016

Hi! I’m Kali Chris, I’m a licensed Cosmetologist/Stylist and Makeup Artist.
My work has been featured in Utah Valley Bride Magazine, Salt Lake Bride & Groom,Utah Bride Blog, Wedding Chicks, Elizabeth Anne Designs, Ruffled Blog, 100 Layer Cake, Martha Stewart Weddings, any many others. I have been doing hair for about 7 years and makeup for about 5 years. What started out as just loving the art of my job and being a part of people’s lives quickly grew into a deeper love for everything associated with it. The amazing people I get to meet everyday and lives I get to touch by simply helping them feel beautiful from the inside out is what I love the most!

Here are some trends for this year:

Face

  • Effortless and minimal makeup, but bold as well. Softer features, soft eyes, less contour, bold lips.
  • Beautiful dewy glowing, satin, luminous, radiant skin.
  • Simple contouring & dewy highlights.
  • Keep it natural but photo ready.

Eyes

  • Worn for days eye makeup look.
  • Tea stained eyes, just adding a single shade to your lid to make you eye color stand out a bit, simple but fun.
  • Soft feline eyes.
  • Smokey evening eye.

Brows

  • Strong brows or natuarl brushed out brows, you can’t go wron, bold brows are going nowhere though.

Lips

  • Simple lip but plump.
  • Bright lips.
  • Red is making a comeback!

Hair

  • Messy not so tamed updos, the more texture the better it will stand out in pictures, the camera loves texture!
  • Braids are still in, again with the texture.
  • Twists.
  • Half up half down, lets you have the best of both worlds, pretty and down but you don’t have to worry about it in your face.
  • My special touch, throw a cool detail design in the back and you have a fun twist to the regular half-up, half-down ‘do
    natural texture in the hair, like Redken Global Creative Director Guido said “It’s the way a very real woman would do her hair.”

Love it!  Thanks so much Kali!

Cakes

Your wedding cake should not just be beautiful but it should be so delicious that guests will be talking about it.

For that reason we believe the wedding cake should be served right from the get go.  Order sheet cakes made in the flavor of your cake and have it cut professionally in perfect 2″x 2″ squares.

Another idea is to have beautiful pedestal cake plates at every table full of mini cupcakes.  Put someone in charge of keeping the tables stocked.  It looks so nice next to the floral centerpiece.

We also love the idea of a groom’s cake.  This is a smaller version of the wedding cake, and a different flavor.  Picked by the groom of course.  And we are so excited that The Cake Market is giving away a groom’s cake on our site this week!

The ultimate Wedding Planning Guide

We have planned, decorated and put together many weddings.  The details determine the success of the outcome of planning and carrying out the big day. So many things are overlooked or not paid attention to during the event that we have created a fail proof guide to wedding planning. Some of these things may seem obvious but they are forgotten more than one thinks.  Happy wedding planning.

Invitations:

  • Design your invitation to reflect the feel of the wedding. If you are putting on an elegant & fancy night then that’s the kind of invitation you send out.
  • Postage is important! Have your invitation weighed at your local post office and make sure you get the right postage. Nobody wants their invitations floating around and then returned to you right before the wedding.
  • Ask the post office to hand process your invitations. This will keep your invitation from bending in machines and getting torn. You spend a lot on these invitations so they should look as nice as the day you mailed them.
  • Send out invitations 4-6 weeks before the wedding. This is important and necessary!

Photographer:

  • I’m just going to come out and say it… just because your best friend is a photographer doesn’t mean that you have to use them. Pick a photographer that has a style you like and one that you know will work with you to make sure the photos look their best when printed. Photography says so much about your special day. Printed photos are SO important in displays around the reception. (If your best friend’s work is the one you like, then great!)

Videographer:

  • Yes, is the answer. Yes, get a videographer. It’s such a great way to remember your day, guests love watching it and your future kids, they’ll watch it again and again and cover their eyes every time you kiss.
  • Make sure you know what time the movie is being dropped off at the reception.
  • When deciding where to show the movie, pick a place near a plug and avoid extension cords as much as possible.
  • Does the venue have a TV? Do you need to bring one from home? Do you need a DVD player or will the Videographer bring a flash drive to put right into a smart TV? Have all the answers and be ready to go. (Also, assign a bridesmaid or groomsmen to be in charge of this and keep the movie going through the night.)

Bridesmaids/Groomsmen:

  • Their job isn’t to mess around and just stand there and look good… that would be the job of the bride and groom.
  • Assign them different things to help out with through the night, especially the set up and clean up. No, they don’t leave when you do, they stay and help the families clean up.
  • Gifts for your bridesmaids and groomsmen: Pick something they can wear that night or use in the future. My favorite is a piece of jewelry for the bridesmaids and cufflinks for the groomsmen.
  • Apparel: Choose what you want your line to wear. You don’t need 15 different opinions.
  • The newest trend is to have everyone in the same color but all different dresses. I love this because you will be able to pick a dress that is flattering to every body type. Pick your first one and then make sure that every outfit matches that one. Take it when shopping.
  • The bride pays for the bridesmaids dresses. Don’t ask them to pay for them or reimburse you after the wedding.
  • The groom pays for the groomsmen’s ties or other accessories you want them to wear. If you aren’t going to rent tuxedos or suits then pick something and tell them what to wear. Most men have a black, gray, navy and khaki suit (and if they don’t…it’s time they buy one.)

bridesmaids in the ultimate guide to wedding planning

The Caterer:

  • The Venue should have tables for your buffet but if not, or if you are having a backyard wedding, you may need to have those set up when the caterers come. Check on that early and set up tables the day before the wedding.
  • Are they staying through the night to clean dishes off tables? If not then you will want to assign this to some friends throughout the night. Keep those tables clean! It’s not fun to look out over a wedding and see a disaster.
  • Pick the right linens for the food you are serving. Stay away from satin if it’s anything messy. Satin shows EVERY finger print and looks terrible within the first few minutes of the event.
  • Keep the dessert bar and buffet table clean. I die when I go to an event that has food and sweets spread all over the buffet tables and a mess on the floor. If the caterer isn’t watching and it’s getting messy, keep reminding them or better yet? Let them know before the wedding how very important it is to you that the serving tables stay clean and nice throughout the night.
  • To serve or not to serve? If you have the caterers serving food you will have less mess and be able to keep to the amount of food that you planned for.
  • Make sure the caterer is planning on boxing up some food for the bride and groom to take with them when they leave the reception and have a pretty bag for them to carry out with them.
  • Ask in advance for any extra food to be boxed up and sent home with the parents as well. In many cases, the caterer is planning on this but sometimes there is a lot of wasted food that the family could be enjoying throughout the week. Take it home!
  • Choose your dishes, napkins and utensils. Monogramed napkins are always a beautiful detail to the wedding that I love.

ultimate guide to wedding planning

Flowers:   This one is extra important for me because I did wedding flowers for so long and love them.

  • YES, they are important and whenever possible, leave the flowers to the professionals. Budget for flowers and avoid doing them yourself.
  • Flowers make or break your wedding. LOVE the work of the florist before you just choose one. Visit an event they’ve done and see florals put together.
  • Remember that just because you are in love with a certain type of flower, it doesn’t mean it’s in season. You can get almost any flower, anytime of year but if they aren’t in season then they will cost you a lot more. Your florist will be able to tell you what is in season.
  • Ask for a quote so there are no surprises.
  • I just don’t think you can go over the top on flowers so when you can, just go nuts.

wedding planner, food & flowers

Linens:

  • To the floor. Always choose a linen to the floor in white or off white and then do a table topper that matches your wedding.
  • TO. THE. FLOOR.

Music:

  • If you are choosing a DJ then choose your playlist so The Lion Sleeps Tonight doesn’t start playing in the middle of your event (unless that’s your favorite song.)
  • Choose a DJ that you have heard of or attended their event before, one that fits your personality. For me, I wanted someone appropriate, who didn’t say dumb things and just played music through the night with the occasional announcement that we asked for.
  • If you have announcements for them to make, write them out how you would like them said.
  • Live music: Again, attend an event and listen to them. Decide on the volume you want them to play at and the songs.  Instrumental is always a win, win and safe choice.
  • Pick all the music for the first dance and daddy/daughter dance. It seems obvious but you would be surprised at how many songs start a dance that the bride didn’t pick and now she’s in tears because she didn’t want Endless Love.

Dancing:

  • Similar to above, pick the music for your special dances.
  • Trim the length of your couple and daddy/daughter dance. Unless you are amazing dancers and will wow your guests with a choreographed ballroom dance (which would be amazing) then cut it short, there’s only so long you can sway back and forth.
  • If you choose to have dancing then finish the night with it.  Not every wedding needs to have dancing.

Make it homey:

  • I love beautiful couches, coffee tables and chairs set up in little gathering sitting areas. Not only does it create unique areas for guests to gather but just looks gorgeous.
  • Use signs to direct guest, welcome them to the event, thank them at the gift table, thank them for coming at the favor table and exit, and additional quotes or wedding sayings around the event is beautiful.  Try having things hand written in beautiful handwriting.  It gives a personal and elegant touch the your event.
  • The ultimate guide to wedding planning

Favors:

  • Make your favors a reflection of the event and use beautiful ribbons and tags.
  • Always place your favors at the exit or guests will miss them and you will be taking a lot home.
  • This is a great DIY for the wedding. Have a favor making party with your family or bridesmaids and form an assembly line. Do this at least 1 month before the wedding.

Frames and decor:

  • Pick all your frames and decor as early as possible.
  • When your photos are back, frame them, box them up and set them aside to be taken to the reception. Do this early and don’t forget! The mother of the bride does not want to be running around the week of the wedding gathering frames that match your event.
ultimate wedding guide

Refined Vintage

Colors:

  • Choose you colors and then go to a paint store and pick paint swatches. Take them everywhere and make sure everything you choose, matches your colors. You don’t want to show up to the reception and find that you have several different shades of the same color.
  • Pick an accent for metals. Choose silver or gold and this will apply to containers, frames, utensils, and anything else that is in a metal.

coral:grey:succ

Cake:

  • This is the most delicious part. Pick a cake flavor that both the bride and groom love or have a wedding cake and a groom’s cake (love this idea).
  • Sample cakes.
  • Tell your florist what you’d like for flowers on your cake so she can plan.
  • Cut and serve your cake early so it actually gets eaten. Guests will love it.
  • Have a cake knife already on the table, plate and napkin.

Send off line:

  • Make a tunnel, sparklers, toss rose petals, choose something to send off the bride and groom and end the night.


ultimate wedding guide!

 

Schedule:

  • Sounds funny but have a schedule and stick to it as much as possible. Cue “The Wedding Planner” movie…
  • Have someone assigned to letting you know the schedule. Someone other than the mother of the bride. Now is time for her to greet guests. Not be running around like crazy. Here’s an example of a night schedule for an open reception from 6:30-9:00 pm:

4:30   Photography of bridal party, family and couple
6:00  Reception starts in 30 minutes, bride & groom greet their guests in a line. Be ready 30 minutes early because some guests always show up early.
7:15   Cake cutting, cake cut and served
Bouquet toss (generally you toss your ceremony bouquet and keep your reception bouquet.)
Any extra things planned

Father/Daughter dance
Couples first dance
open dancing (if dancing)
8:30 Couple gets ready to leave, changing into going away outfits.
Send off line begins to form
8:45 Couple leaves onto happily ever after.
Family says goodbye’s to friends and wraps up the night.

Clean up/take down. Make sure you know when you have to leave the venue before you get charged for overtime.

And that’s a wrap on your fairytale day.

A dance to remember
Weddings

A dance to remember

A couple’s first dance can be a pleasure to plan, or it can give you great anxiety.  You might not want to do a sexy tango, but you also don’t want to sway back and forth for 2 minutes like a couple of high schoolers.  It’s a tough road to cross for many people, but I’m here to tell you that it can be fun and can kick off your wedding reception in the best way.

The first dance is a tradition that dates back to the royals, the guest of honor would start off the night with a dance before all the guests joined in.

On your wedding day, the guests are there to honor your marriage and celebrate with you. Sharing a dance together will make them feel like they are supporting the happy couple that loves each other.

I had a great opportunity recently to choreograph a beautiful couple’s first dance.  Rich & Mietra weren’t sure what they were going to do, but they were sure they wanted a dance.  I taught them a simple dance that made them feel comfortable and exited to perform. Not only was their dance beautiful but they had DAVID ARCHULETA  sing live! It all came together beautifully and I was honored to be a part of it.

A Couples First Dance

If you need a little encouragement or direction on choreographing the best dance for your wedding, I would love to contribute to your special day. Contact me at saltskyutah@gmail.com

Remember, life is always better when you dance!

Wedding planning: food & flowers

As part of our bridal week, we are talking about food & flowers, two important parts of your event planning!

Flowers are probably my favorite part of the wedding, they absolutely make the event and they’ll set the tone for the night. There are lots of “do it yourself” options when it comes to weddings, but I would leave this one to the pros. You don’t have to spend a fortune on your wedding flowers, but I also wouldn’t cut corners here. There are so many talented florists that will make all your floral dreams come true.  I’ve found one for you that I think will meet your budget while giving you that amazing design you’ve been pinning…. May Flowers.

To make it even sweeter, May Flowers is giving you a FREE bridal bouquet when you book your wedding with them by September 30, 2015. Read all about them at www.mayflowersutah.com or call for a consultation at 801-661-2855.

wedding flowers & food planner!

Now let’s talk food! When hosting a formal sit down dinner, food planning is easier because you will have guests RSVP but when you are having a buffet at your wedding, here’s a great formula for figuring out how many people to plan for: (#of invitations sent out) X (2) – (60%) = # of people to plan for.

For example:
500 invitations, X2 = 1,000 people -60% = 400
You would plan on food for 400 people. Remember to also remove from this number all the out of town people that will not be attending.

Here are a couple of options to consider when planning your day.

There are a lot of catering companies that will let you pick through an entire menu and set up every detail. The benefit of this is that you don’t have to worry about anything after you pick the menu. It will be ready to go when you get to the reception. The downside is that you generally can’t add any of your own food or desserts.  You also probably won’t be able to change quantities of food, for example, if you think that your guests will eat less meat and more salads, you might not be able to change that because you are being charged by the plate.  But, how wonderful is it to have everything taken care of?

wedding food & flowers planner

Another option is choosing a restaurant or catering company that will allow you to order exactly what you need and add in some food of your own. The plus side to this option is that it allows you to save lots of money by bringing some of your own food and desserts. The down side is that it is a ton of work and some extra stress. However, if you have some really great helpers, you can have the catered food delivered, add in the food you’ve prepared and set up your buffet table however you’d like.

Lastly, two great ways to serve your wedding cake that aren’t traditional but loved: Mini cupcakes on a cake stand at every table so guests eat sweets while they mingle. Or have a sheet cake version also made of your wedding cake that is served to guests throughout the night. Not just at the end of the reception when the cake is cut. (Read about this idea at Eliza’s wedding here.) Your guests will love eating the cake throughout the party. We have done both of these options for our weddings and they were a hit!

Do you need some cake ideas? Cakes by Katelyn will be exhibiting at the Bridal Extravaganza this weekend and has some beautiful cakes and cookies. We served her sugar cookies at one of our weddings and they were loved! Cakes by Katelyn also has a great surprise for everyone at the show, she’ll be introducing the wedding cookie tower!

Katelyn is also giving one lucky winner a cookie bouquet to pick up at the show!  Enter on our Instagram & Facebook pages. We will announce the 3 winners on Friday, April 17.

IMPORTANT! Once the reception gets going, you won’t remember details like taking home left over food. Make sure your catering company or kitchen helpers know that you want all the extra food boxed up to take home. You’d be amazed at the left overs you and your family can enjoy after the wedding is over. You don’t want all that food being thrown away or taken back, you’ll pay the same amount either way. It’s also a great idea to have a little to go bag of food or desserts to send off with the bride & groom. They generally don’t eat enough and are starving after the long day. They would just love to take something yummy with them to their hotel.

Happy planning and remember to enjoy it, it’s not as scary and stressful as you might think. Surround yourself with friends, family and talented businesses that are ready to help and you’ll look back on this time with some amazing memories!

Soda Bar

Are you looking for the perfect detail that will make your party or wedding stand out? Look no further, custom labeled sodas is what you need! These sodas are so perfect for every party you can think of. Today I want to show them to you in a wedding soda bar setting.

My sisters each had these served at their weddings, and guests not only loved to drink them but some even took one on the way out as a souvenir! We just loved how these sodas were customized with their names, wedding date and matched the colors of each of their weddings.

At Paulina’s wedding we served black cherry to match her wedding colors.

Samantha’s wedding had a soda bar with 4 different kinds of sodas.  Give your sodas a fun flavor name… Celebration Cream Soda, Forever Mine Raspberry Lime, Perfect Pair Pineapple… there are so many options that your guests will love reading, get creative!

7 Hot Wedding Colors for 2015

Are you getting married or helping to plan a wedding in 2015? I have some color pallets that are just stunning this year. Some are timeless and some are new and trending. When planning your big day, it’s crucial to carry around in your purse the color swatches! I think I could work on wedding planning everyday and be happy, it’s just so much fun to gather all the special details. It might be stressful to plan a wedding but it’s also a lifetime of memories you’re making, so enjoy the ride!

1. Lilac: The color combination of lilac, grey and off white is just stunning. I can see this look in an elegant wedding today or in Victoria magazine from back in the day… anyone remember that magazine? Gorgeous! I used to love to look at my mom’s Victoria collection. I put together a vintage look for this color pallet, what a beautiful backyard wedding this would be.

lilac
2. Marsala: This new wedding trend is refreshing. I like these colors mixed together: marsala/wine, light grey, dk gray/navy tint and blush. When using this color combination, marsala/wine is going to be your main accent. Notice the bouquet is mostly blush and off white with accents in marsala and gray. Touches everywhere will just make your wedding stand out this year.

marsala color pallette
3. Orange & Pomegranate. This year use fruit in your arrangements and decor. These colors are just stunning in an elegant indoor or outdoor wedding. I love this color pallet of tangerine and pomegranate. Not only are the colors rich and fabulous together, but use the actual fruits in your florals. Accent your picture table with bowls filled with tangerines and pomegranates. I also think adding a graphic of a tangerine to a favor would just tie it all together. There are so many shades you can use in this pallet that will all compliment each other.

pom:tangerine
4. Coral, blush & gray. Yes, we love gray this year! Whether in interior design or your special event, it’s just a spectacular color. There are gray succulents that you’ll see in this bridal bouquet, use them throughout the reception. It adds just a little bit of that outdoor, desert look and mixes it with the elegance of blush and coral roses and peonies. The clothing, jewelry, cake, flowers, favors, invitations can all have a combination of the entire color pallet and it won’t be too much. I just wish I had these flowers in my front room today, aren’t they so happy and beautiful?

coral:grey:succ
5. Hot pink and yellow. Bright? Yes! This wedding just says fun. I can picture the bridesmaids and groomsmen having a great time on the dance floor. A reception filled with sweets and a photo booth with great props! If you’re looking for a great summertime party, these colors would just be perfect.

hot pink:yellow
6. Coral to light pink. I love how soft and beautiful this is together. This vintage wedding would be fabulous with some comforts of home. Whether indoor or outdoor create some wonderful seating areas with pillows, backdrops and ribbon garlands. Creating areas that all serve a purpose for entertaining will make your guests comfortable and relaxed at your special day.

coral to light pink
7.Last but not least. Navy, gold, deep yellow. You’ll see a lot of weddings this year in navy blue with different accents but one of those is gold. I love the gold accents in this color pallet. Use lemons as accents and yellow shoes for the bridesmaids, it’s just too cute. I fell in love with these cake pops, they’d be so beautiful in a dessert bar. This wedding can be fun and casual or elegant. It would also make a beautiful sit down dinner.

navy:yellow

Good luck planning your big day! What colors are you planning this year? Send me pictures, I’d love to see them!
