Things to take into consideration when picking out the right veil.
1. Make sure that the comb is sewn onto the veil in the right direction. This will be an issue if the veil has diamonds or a pattern. You want to make sure that the curved part of the comb is against the head and you are able to see the diamonds or design. I have had a few brides that came to me with beautiful veils but since the comb was sewn on wrong, you couldnt see the design or the diamonds were facing the wrong direction. Make sure that you try your veil on before you buy it. Or if you are ordering one make sure that you it way before you wedding so that you can send it back and get a new one if something is wrong with it.
2. Look for veils with wire combs. You want to be able to secure your veil in place with bobby pins and the best one to do this with is one with a wire comb. The wires are looped in a way that you can stick bobby pins through them to secure them to your hair. The plastic combs usually do not have anything to put booby pins through and therefore are kinda difficult to secure to the hair.
3. Make sure that the veil is not heavy. If your comb is heavy then your hairstylist may have a problem getting it to stay in your hair without wieghing your hair down. The veil is usually placed right below the crown of the head and that is usually where the volume is. You don't want your veil to pull down on that part of your hair because that is usually the section of hair that is teased and sprayed to give you a littile height.

I love Magnolia Gardens! They have the best scenery and a good bit of shade. I recommend booking this venue early because they are really popular. They have a cute little cottage that you can get ready in. I often do onsite hair and makeup in the cottage before the wedding starts. March/April is a really good time to book your wedding, because the Azaleas bloom early, and they have a ton of them.

AIRBRUSH MAKEUP IS A MUST FOR THIS HOT HUMID WEATHER! Don't worry about your makeup melting off, streaking, or rubbing off. My airbrush makeup is sweatproof, humidity resistant, and sweat resistant. You can dance all night and your makeup will look as if it were just applied.
Try not to wear too much foundation and mascara before your wedding. This will let your skin breath. While it is hot, your pores open up more and allow anything that is on top to go inside the pores and become trapped, causing black and whiteheads.
Stay away from powders! Except eyeshadows. Mineral powder and face powder are bad for your skin. They dry it out and clog it up....especially in this heat.
The less mascara you wear, the longer and thicker your lashes will be for your wedding. Alot of people think that they will need the false lashes, but if you follow this tip, you will just need a little eyelash primer. I have the BEST eyelash primer, it makes your lashes 2 and 3X's longer and thicker instantly. It is better than anything out there!

Airbrush Makeup began in the Cinema industry in 1925, when makeup artists used the technique to paint hundreds of extras in a quick and effective way.
The techniques were re-popularized in the 90’s when digital photography and High Definition Television required a flawless and natural coverage without a heavy buildup of product on the skin.
It has only been a recent occurrence that makeup artists, specializing in Airbrushing have been offering it to clients outside of the photographic, film and television industries. This is mainly due to a greater use of digital wedding photography, which has created a demand for flawless, long lasting foundations as well as a greater accessibility of airbrush products.
Countless clients have often asked me about the benefits of airbrush makeup when compared to traditional techniques. Below is a great explanation of airbrushing and the benefits of it.
What is so remarkable about this technique is that the most refined droplets of foundation are directed and deposited on your face through an air delivery system. The resulting finish is flawless skin with natural looking coverage.
When the air fuses with the foundation, it oxidizes it into a high opacity; you get maximum coverage with a breath of product, a girl’s best friend! The last thing the skin needs is to be weighed down with too much product, collecting in areas that exaggerate flaws instead up minimizing them.
This is a strategy that any good makeup artist strives for in an application; perfect skin and undetectable foundation. However, it gets better!
The longevity of the water or silicone based airbrush foundation is good for ten to twelve hours. An alcohol based product can last upwards of 16 hours and will survive the harshest of elements.
Brides can now dance on into the night knowing they haven’t budged or smudged.

The makers of tuxedo pants have found a way to help the guys pull their shirts nice and tight. There are holes inside the front pants pocket. Feel around and up high--they are there!
Best man tip: Under the circumstances, the front pants pocket might not be the best place to keep the rings! (or your keys, or your money...)
