The D-Day, everyone will look at you, and you need to be perfect for the photos. But, how to plan your destination wedding beauty ? Discover the tips from Nanoo, hairdresser and MUA in Montpellier !

What treatments the Bride can do for the D-Day ?

In first, for your wedding, your skin needs a special treatment. Nanoo advice to do that 1 week before the DDay for a facial car and hair removal. “The day before, help your skin with a night cream, and a day cream the morning”. To avoid red marks or allergies, plan your treatment 1 week before the DDay.”

And concerning the hair ?

“Ideally, plan your shampoo the day before. The, your hair will be softer and waver.”, explains Nanoo. “A natural drying is always better”. On the South of France, you can afford to let your hair dry with the warm !

Could you give some tips for the bride’s hairdress ?

Nanoo recommends natural shampoos and sends brides an explanatory note with the shampoo to use. She asks them to treat their hair with this care regularly during the year. “Commercial shampoos are often too concentrated and oily, which suffocates your hair. To be beautiful, your hair needs to breathe,” explains our hairdresser and makeup artist. She also advises against making masks that tend to grease hair and make it heavier, “I recommend using egg yolk and olive oil to replace masks.” Our professional regularly has positive feedback on this technique that sublimates the hair.

How do you weary your eyes and get rid of the dark circles?

Some of you will naturally have dark circles, others will simply be tired on the wedding day.That’s why we asked Nanoo for advice on getting rid of dark circles. “Nothing beats the natural! I recommend using blueberry water or rose water,” explains Nanoo. For the application, our professional advises to use warm compresses that should be tapped on the underside of the eye and especially not to rub because it is an area where the skin is sensitive. “You can also make blueberry water cubes to apply in the morning or in the evening by tapping,” says our makeup artist.

What do you think is the wedding advice to give for beauty?

Nanoo usually says to stay self-reliant. “You have to sublimate yourself, but don’t disguise yourself!” quotes the beauty professional. Also, it is very important to have a good diet. Indeed, Nanoo explains that what you eat is reflected on your skin but also on your hair. It is then necessary to adopt a good diet to have a bright face and healthy hair!

How to book a Wedding Video Maker ?

Dear Bride & Grooms to be,

You’re getting marriend in France, and consider the option to hire for a wedding videomaker. But, how to choose and book a professionnal ? Your wedding planner in Montpellier interviewed Erik, from Le Studio Video who tell us 5 tips to help to book the best videast for your DDay.

When should Bride & Groom start to looking for their videomaker ?

“I would say..ASAP. Wedding videomaker are more and more required, even if there are more choice in term of styles. The best would be to book this vendor 1 year before your Day. After, it’s always possible but the choice will be pretty limited.”

According you, why it’s important to hire a videomaker moreover a photographer ?

According Erik, it depends of couple expectations. But in general, video brings something more emotional than the photo. “On a film, we can hear people laugh, move, talk.. We feel the atmosphere, for example during the special excitation of the first dance. we could remember differents souvenirs with a best real life mood”.

Could you explain what styles of wedding videomaker could we found ?

“In first, the storytelling, which is a narrative film, from a speech or a review for example. Secondly, a videoclip is a longer video (10-30 min) or a reportage covering (more than 30min).” For example, Erik uses a lot of reportage shoots, with natural immersion, and lights. “The, the artist could add some music (entertain or slow), with differents colors, slow motion.. Every film is unique”.

For you, what are the tops moments to capture on the Day ?

“The one : the arrival of the Groom to the ceremony, then, his first look with his wife-to-be.” During preparatives, Erik love to capture Bride connections with her closes, and some natural shoots of the guests during the cocktail, when they are relaxed.

“For the party, speeches, first dance, and wedding cake entrance will be the keys moments”. But he lets Bride & Groom guide him to keep what is important to them.  

The important thing to know before to hire a videomaker ?

“Bride & Groom should be totally confident with the artist, so the feeling is as important as his style.”  To give to them the best experience, Erik meets them several twice, in real life or by video call. “So, on the DDay, videomaker could feel all the emotions naturally, and sublimate them !”.

Wedding Coordination Services

Hello all,
Today, I wished to share more in detail with you the Wedding Coordination Services. This service is essential to enjoy fully of your wedding !

What is the role of your wedding planner?

A wedding coordination begins in reality well before the D-day, approximately 2 months before. Indeed, when all your vendors are booked, I organize a logistic RDV  on your venue with them.  At least, the caterer, the DJ, the photographer, and the decorator.
So, it makes us to detail  all the logistics of the D-day and to anticipate the unforeseen. It can go of the access truck, in the road sign to be set up, to the light for photos. It is there that I am going to ask you all the questions to accompany you at best: plan B in case of bad weather, who composes the procession, if you wish to make a bouquet throw etc.

And that I takes the address and phone number of your close friends for the possible surprises for your attention!
From there, a schedule of your day results, with address and phone number of the speakers, the plans of room, table etc.

Througtout the day, I can need to request you and to make you validate certain points, but in 99 % I do not need an it because everything will minutely have been prepared.

 

Also, I am there by your side to make sure that you drink and eat (and I always insist on these points), that you do not forget your bouquet, your rings, your wishes..

Our mission continues throughout the day, in particular for the management of your ceremony (ies). Respect for the timing, the management of the procession, the photos .. No moment is left at random!
We are there to manage the small details (which have the importance). For example: the good implementation of the paper goods, the ignition of candles, tests for the surprises with your witnesses .. And even sometimes, according to the chosen option, some handlings!

We leave you generally after the service of the wedding cake, the last highlight of the day. From there, the DJ takes care to put the atmosphere, and the owner of your place of reception must normally be always available if necessary.
If however shuttles are organized to return the guests at night, we remain always reachable if necessary.
