The Natural Makeup Look

With wedding season approaching, many brides have been planning for months, running walkthroughs, booking vendor after vendor, and looking for venues for all of their wedding-related events, such as bridal shower venues. One vendor they have probably booked is a makeup artist. Brides want to look their absolute best on their big day, but they still want to look like themselves. 

The “No Makeup” makeup look is a top ask from brides that a wedding makeup artist must fulfill. Soft glam makeup is one look that highlights the bride’s natural features while covering any discoloration or insecurities. But how do you achieve natural bridal makeup?

Here is what you’ll need to do to achieve the perfect “No Makeup” look:

  •   Apply your regular skincare routine (prep first to make sure the skin is hydrated)
  •   Use a pore-filling or gripping primer
  •   Find a medium/buildable coverage foundation that fits your skin type
  •   Under the eyes, use a concealer one or two shades lighter than the foundation
  •   Set your foundation with a translucent or setting powder
  •   Work with a bronzer or heavy contouring to accent the shape of your face
  •   Blush should be lightly applied and a complementing shade to your skin tone
  •   Highlighter is optional but, if used, should be put on the high point of the face

 

Wedding Day Makeup Prep

A proper skincare routine is key to a more flawless makeup application. As a bride, if you don’t already have them, you should test out a few skincare products weeks before your wedding day. It is recommended to give your skin some time to adjust to the new products or see if they have any reaction. Another important tip is to consult with a skincare professional before testing any new products.

When it comes to finding all the right shades of foundations, concealers, and powders, the wedding makeup artist should know how to see the skin tone and undertones of a bride’s skin. This is why most artists will recommend a “trial” run a few weeks or months in advance to establish which shades and which look the bride will need and want.

Getting the “No Makeup” Makeup Look

To achieve the natural makeup look, you want it to look like the makeup is barely there. A light to medium buildable coverage foundation is integral in this process. It allows you to even out the skin tone while covering any blemishes or discoloration. For the rest of the face, the artist doing this bridal makeup should have a light hand and shouldn’t be packing on the products, which would make any face look cakey. Lightly bronzing instead of intensely contouring, feathering brows and not having sculpted out ones, and choosing a natural pink or nude lip with a gloss on top are additional features that help create a natural bridal look. The eyeshadows should be neutral and, once again, a compliment to the bride’s skin tone. Adding a shimmer or highlight to the eyes, bridge and tip of the nose, high points of the cheeks, and the cupid’s bow on the upper lip will leave you with a subtle but very bridal glow. Applying the highlighter to the points of the face where the light naturally hits is what brings this glow to life.

Best Bridal Shower Gifts for the Bride-to-Be

Best Bridal Shower Gifts for the Bride-to-Be

Finding the perfect bridal shower gift can be a challenge, especially if the bride is a really close friend and you want the gift to be memorable and special. Bridal shower gift ideas can either be traditional or out of the box depending on the bride’s wish list and taste. When in doubt, there is nothing wrong with a gift that’s a little bit of both worlds. If you are getting ready to attend a bridal shower but are having a hard time coming up with the perfect gift, these are some of the best and most unique bridal shower gift ideas to make your search easier!

Classic Bridal Shower Gift Ideas

If you are looking for a more traditional gift, here are some classic bridal shower gift ideas you can choose from for the bride-to-be.

Dessert Stand
When a couple decides to get married, they are likely already living together or are setting their sights on becoming homeowners. The purchasing of a home is usually followed by a housewarming party, and a housewarming party usually has cake! No dessert table is complete without a dessert stand, whether there is a beautiful chocolate cake or a variety of cupcakes, a dessert stand will always come in handy and makes one of the best bridal shower gifts.

Placemats
Simple and easy, placemats make the perfect statement piece in the dining room and kitchen. Gift the bride-to-be a set of placemats that accentuate the dining area in their home with a splash of color or choose a set that complements a theme or vibe they have going.

Picture Frame
One of the best bridal shower gift ideas is a beautiful picture frame. A frame can be used in many different ways around a home as accent pieces or the focal point of the room. Picture frames can hold memories of you and the bride or her own memories that she will make in her marriage.

Champagne Glasses
The most timeless bridal shower gift idea is a pair of champagne glasses. The champagne glasses can be used on the day of the wedding for a toast and even on the couple’s anniversary. As a special touch, have the champagne glasses etched with the bride and groom’s names or their wedding date.

Unique Bridal Shower Gift Ideas

If the classic bridal shower gift is not what you are looking for, here are some unique bridal shower gift ideas for you to consider as you’re shopping for the bride-to-be!

Cookbook for Newlyweds
Help the new couple make their first dinner together with a newlywed cookbook from your favorite chef or homemaker. This unique bridal shower gift idea is one that keeps on giving! Over time, the couple can find their favorite recipes and make their signature dishes on special occasions, like their anniversary or the holidays.

Personalized Sun Hat
If your bride enjoys some fun in the sun, there is no way that you can go wrong with a personalized beach hat. Have a cute saying sewn into the brim or the bride’s new last name if she is changing it.

Personalized Doormat
Whether the newlyweds have a home or are planning to move in together, a personalized doormat is the perfect unique bridal shower gift idea. Customize a simple doormat with the couple’s last name and the year of their marriage to welcome them home as newlyweds.

Foodie Dice Tumbler
Newlyweds need a date night now and again but deciding where to eat can be the hardest thing. A foodie dice tumbler can help make the decision easier! With 186,000 possibilities, date night will always be interesting.

SOS: Wedding Day Emergency Kit

SOS: Wedding Day Emergency Kit

It’s almost time to walk down the aisle and you may be feeling anxious, which is normal for any bride. Worrying robs you of enjoying this special moment in your life. Nevertheless, it’s important to keep a wedding day emergency kit on hand to help make sure everything goes smoothly on your special day. We’ll show you what to include in your ultimate wedding emergency kit so you can enjoy your special day at our South Florida country club.

 

Super Glue/Clear Nail Polish

Have a run in your nylons and tights? Include a clear nail polish in your wedding day emergency kit to spread a quick coat over the tear to prevent them from running any further. For broken jewelry or shoes, have super glue on hand to fix any defective accessories.

 

Makeup

As you’re getting ready for your wedding day, not everything may go as planned; for example, your makeup artist may arrive late. Having your own makeup stash on hand ensures your face will be made up as you walk down the aisle. For your wedding emergency kit, include makeup such as mascara, eyeliner, foundation, lipstick, and blotting papers to freshen up your makeup look throughout the day.

 

Sewing Kit

Among the hustle and bustle of getting ready for your wedding day, you or your bridesmaids may have snags, tears, or loose threads in your dresses. The best remedy for this is a sewing kit. This will make surviving your wedding day that much easier as everything seems to move so fast.

 

Your wedding day is a special day for you and your other half and having a wedding day emergency kit with you during the day will make you less anxious. Want to know about holding your wedding at our South Florida country club? Contact our staff to find out more information.

2019 Wedding Trends

2019 Wedding Trends

Now that it’s the beginning of the year and your special someone proposed to you in 2018, it’s now time to start looking for wedding trends for the new year. Wedding trends change year after year, making wedding theme trends in 2019 unique in their own way. Each year, wedding themes evolve through the décor, fashion statements, and floral arrangements. With each coming year, themes are more unique to the couple taking part in matrimony. So, what 2019 wedding reception trends can you expect to see in the new year? We’ll let you know so that you can choose the best for you and your spouse to hold at our South Florida country club.

 

Dark and Edgy

Contrary to the popular theme of “light and bright,” going dark and edgy for your wedding reception will be in-style. Over the years, weddings have become edgier with moodier accents to contrast the typical soft, romantic décor along with bright photography. Couples are becoming bolder when it comes to choosing and mixing colors. Darker colors for receptions are one the top wedding trends for the new year.  

 

Minimalism

Of course, everyone has heard of minimalism. So why not bring it over to your wedding reception? This is one of the 2019 wedding reception trends that not only looks simplistic, but it can also save you some bucks as well. You won’t have to put in much effort in wedding planning as all you have to do is pick three monochromatic colors and clean lines. As our South Florida country club is a neutral setting, this 2019 wedding trend won’t look out of place.

 

Back to Basics

While unconventional, edgy 2019 wedding trends are on the rise, there are still couples who would flock to the classic wedding theme, and there’s nothing wrong with that! The classic theme includes traditional design accents with a classic ballroom wedding reception area, an important wedding element that can be found at our country club. So, have fun picking out monogrammed cloth napkins, crystal stemware, silver candlesticks, and more.

 

Choosing the right 2019 wedding trend is up to you and your special someone. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime event, so have fun choosing whichever 2019 wedding reception trend you’re looking for.

10 Questions to Ask Your Wedding Venue

10 Questions to Ask Your Wedding Venue

Get to Know Your Wedding Venue

Whether a couple is shooting for country chic or a cityscape romance, wedding venues set the tone for the entire event. The food, the flowers, the dress, the decor—there are so many things a couple must consider when planning their wedding, but few things are more important than the location of it.

Considering this, the professionals at Deer Creek golf club share ten key questions every couple must ask of their wedding venue before they tie the knot.

  1. What dates are available within the desired month?

Ask this question to eliminate venues that may be booked during your specified month, or that may not offer the date you wish for. For instance, a Saturday in June may have to be booked far in advance.

  1. What is the price of the venue?

Oftentimes, venues offer Fridays and Sundays for discounted prices. Other weekdays are even lower. Asking about the financial obligations of the venue allows you to get a better deal. Maybe you can even use that extra money to spring for a trendy candy table!

  1. What’s included in the price?

Ask this question to check if your venue provides food, beverages, chairs, décor, etc.

  1. Are there any special offers during the wedding date?

Some venues have different features they provide at certain times, like a rose garden in the summertime. The wedding venue at Deer Creek Florida golf course is known for its unique offerings and atmosphere.

  1. How many people does the space accommodate?

This question is integral for those with large families and lots of friends invited to the wedding.

  1. How many events are hosted in one day?

Asking this will help you know what to expect for that day in terms of time and help. Most couples prefer venues which host one or very few other weddings in a single day. This way, the attention of the staff and the time of the location space is freed up and focused solely upon that single couple.

  1. How long will the venue be provided for?

Couples must ask this question to accurately schedule their ceremony and reception time. No newlyweds want to be kicked out of their beautiful venue during the obligatory couple’s dance. Not to mention, guests wouldn’t appreciate being thrown out of the party either.

  1. What are the accommodations?

Find out if the venue has enough restrooms, offers sufficient parking, provides handicap accessible features, and has other special accommodations, like coat checks or separate rooms for the bridal party.

  1. What suggestions are there in terms of floor plan?

Your venue coordinator knows the space the best, so they can offer you the most efficient and elegant way to layout your wedding reception and/or ceremony.

  1. Are there any kinds of restrictions?

This is beneficial to know for noise and décor. Do this to avoid an extra bill for the loud music or the illegally-strung blinking lights.

While you and your soon-to-be spouse will benefit greatly from asking these questions, there is one thing that cannot be answered in this way: the ambience. Before your big day, visit the venue a few times to get a feel for it. If it doesn’t feel right, don’t count on questions to resolve your apprehension. If the venue does feels right, though, then make your wedding dreams come true and book it!
