The Ultimate Bridal bucket list – 15 things you must do before tying the knot!

Wedding planning can be tiring, frustrating, time consuming, overwhelming and stressful. After all, you are prepping for the most important day of your life!

So, we suggest take a break and fill your last days as a ‘single gal’ with some really fun things! After all these are some memories you will cherish a lot, specially after getting married! 😉

Check out this bridal bucket list of things you definitely need to do before you tie the knot!

Throw the most epic bachelorette:

Spend some time with your #GirlSquad and indulge in some much-deserved gossip and drinks. Go wild in Vegas or Ibiza, treat yourself to a spa day or get dressed up and have a drunken week-out!

Face your fears:

Now is the perfect time to do something, which you would never usually do. Face your fears and book yourself an adventure sport – skydiving, river rafting or paragliding! Go on a solo trip and be with yourself & your thoughts for some time 🙂

Whatever gets your adrenaline going,  just do it! Marriage will seem way less scary afterwards :p

First date (again):

Repeat your very first date with your hubby-to-be. We’re talking about the exact same location, the same outfits, the same everything! It will be fun to relive the experience again and you’ll get to have those first date butterflies all over again! Just make sure to avoid the first date fails though :p

Take a break:

Amongst all the chaos around, it’s very important to find time just for yourself. So, put down the to-do sheet, forget about the decor details and just relax. Just switch off from all the wedding planning and sleep the night off!  You can thank us later.

Love letters:

Go, old school, forget whatsapp, IMs and emails and write an actual letter. One of those cheesy romantic ones about why you can’t wait to marry him, and give it to him the morning before the wedding day. He’ll melt right away and be reminded why he fell in love with you in the first place.

Go on a wild shopping spree:

Buy those shoes you’ve always wanted, the expensive jacket you know you’ll probably never wear, the contour kit which is ridiculously expensive but so damn good! No we don’t mean spending on a Lamborghini, but treat yourself to something you would never usually buy. Go on, you’ve got our permission!

Pre wedding photoshoot:

In between all the hustle bustle of the wedding planning madness, don’t forget to schedule a pre-wedding photoshoot! Plan the shoot in any of your favourite places or where you got engaged and you can cherish those happy moments forever. It’ll help you get to know and relax in front of your photographer too!

Brunch with his famjam:

If you haven’t hung out a lot with each other’s extended families, this is a must do. Getting to know relatives, at least on the first-name basis is important for both you and your fiance’! Also, if you tend to forget a lot, have your partner draw you a family tree! What are you waiting for, go plan that fun brunch now!

Break in your wedding shoes:

Practice walking and dancing in your wedding shoes way before the D-day arrives! You don’t want blisters on your wedding day now!

Clear Your Work To-Do List:

Getting married does not mean you ignore your work! So keep in mind to take care of all the big-projects and work assignments way early so that the to-do work list isn’t floating around in your head. Work is the last thing you want to think about as you head into your wedding weekend.

Have the baby talk :

It’s important to have this talk before-hand – to know your baby future. You may want no kids, your fiance’ may want kids, or you both might wanna wait some time to be ready to be parents –  it’s always good to have that talk. So just plan it up to get you both on the same page!

Make your own tradition:

 

Something like brewing your own beer every 6 months, doing a trek every 3 months, having a date-night every saturday, taking a trip to your favourite destination every year, going to a yoga class every morning. In short, anything that’s very “YOU” as a couple. It really does get the fuzzies out.

 Marry the love of your life:

Everything you were stressing about in the lead-up to your big day will fall aside as soon as the special day arrives. Trust us on that! This is the most important day of you life so enjoy each and every second of it!

Easy skincare tips & tricks to get that natural glow for your D-day!

Your wedding day is going to be the most special day of your life and all the eyes are going to be on you! While you may be preparing for a lot of things in advance to ensure your D-Day goes on great and smooth, one thing you might miss is taking care of your skin!

 

You need to have glowing skin for your D-day. How to get it? Here’s us helping you out:

 

1. Sleep:

 

 

A good night’s rest has never been more important than in the weeks  leading up to your wedding day. A solid 8 hours of snooze will do more wonders than you can even think of! Need another excuse to hit the pillow at a reasonable time?

 

2. Wash your face:

 

 

Always wash your face before bed! If you’re not washing away all the dirt and sweat from the day, you’re asking for a breakout. Keep cleansing wipes on your nightstand for nights when you’re too tired to move!

 

3. Detoxing sheet mask:

 

 

Not only do they make for a great Instagram selfie, sheet masks also work wonders for your skin. Sheet masks serve up a ton of nourishing hydration to your skin. So, put on the mask, relax and wake up with a glowing face.  

 

4. Instant acne remedy:

 

 

If you’re someone who only suffers from the occasional pimple, you can use Hydrogen Peroxide as an overnight spot treatment. Pop it on your pimple before bed, and wake up to see it almost completely gone.

You can get it here.

 

Or

 

Aloe Vera is famous for treating wounds and scars and also acts as a remedy to get rid of acne fast. Apply Aloe Vera juice or gel on spots and let it dry for about one hour before washing it off with warm water.

 

Or

 

Apply a non-gel toothpaste before going to bed. For the most significant improvement, wake up a few times during the night and check whether the toothpaste is still covering the spot. If it is not, add more.

 

5. Ice it out:

 

 

Rub an ice cube all over the area for about two minutes before applying an acne cream or a DIY face mask.

 

6. DIY face mask:

 

 

Whip up a spa-worthy mask right at your home using strawberries and yogurt to help smooth bumps and unclog pores. Smooth it on, kick back, and try not to eat it all up :p

 

Or

 

Combine cooked oatmeal with lemon juice and egg. The oatmeal’s antioxidants will bring down swelling, while the acid in the lemon kills bacteria in your pores and the vitamin E in the egg will tighten skin so it appears perfectly smooth.

 

7. Hydrate your skin:

 

 

A dry face is much more prone to wrinkles and breakouts. So, simply cleanse, wash your face before you sleep and apply a good night-cream with anti-ageing properties. It’ll make a huge difference in the look and feel of your skin.

 

8. Don’t pick it:

 

 

Whatever you do, resist the urge to squeeze. It is tempting to pick and pop at a pimple, but that can lead to permanent scarring and further breakouts.

 

9. For your eyes:

 

 

While you get the glow on your face, don’t forget the eyes! Constant exposure to computers, sun and the lack of sleep can leave you with dark circles. You can use these simple ways for healthy eyes:

– Use a comforting eye contour gel that works on hydrating the skin around your eyes as you sleep

– Use an eye mask to cover your eyes while you sleep

– Wash your eyes with cold water when you wake up

Your dark circles would not have vanished, but your eyes will look fresh!

10. Avoid salty foods in the evening:

 

 

This one is especially applicable for the nights leading up to your big day! We’re talking about the actual night before the wedding. Make it a point to avoid highly salty foods as they can lead to puffiness.

 

11. Vitamin C:

 

 

One of the keys to achieving radiant skin is the good old Vitamin C. This  super ingredient banishes dark spots and improves skin’s tone, revealing beautifully glowy skin. We mean who doesn’t want that?

 

12. Incorporate hydrating food in your diet:

 

No matter what skin type or issue you may have, your body craves water.  Drinking water is great, but eating foods that are naturally hydrating is the best! Especially during summers!

So, try to incorporate watermelon, cucumbers, tomatoes and kale.  A good rule is to include an additional 2 water-rich fruits or veggies in your diet.  

 

13. Don’t do anything drastic:

 

 

The ultimate beauty goal for most you brides is to look like themselves, but better. A lot of you get carried away with invasive procedures to melt away all those signs of ageing. We can’t stress enough on how this is NOT the way to go. Not only do you risk having a bad reaction to a procedure with serious downtime, you also are in danger of not looking like you.  

 

Embrace the uniqueness that makes you ‘you’ and walk towards your fiance’ looking like the beautiful person that your partner is expecting you to be!

With just eight bungalows hidden thick in this jungle-like resort on the face of a cliff looking over the ocean –  Secret Bay feels as if it were built specifically for honeymooners.

Some love stories touch our hearts, keep us thinking about it and give us happy tears! One such story is of this differently-abled couple – Anup Chandran and  Nehal Thakkar. This ‘Wedding On Wheels’ as their photographer – 361 Degree Productions likes to call it, touched our hearts too!

 

 

Anup and Nehal come from different states and totally different cultures.  Anup is a South Indian whereas Nehal belongs to an orthodox Gujarati family.

 

But they were destined to be together! In 2003, Anup met with an accident in which he lost his legs, 2 years down the line, Nehal met with an accident at the exact same place. Coincidence, serendipity or fate?

 

A common friend introduced them for the first time and they developed an instant connection! From Orkut, to Facebook, to playing Farmville (where Anup used to cheat in order to win :p), they never knew how and when they fell in love! It took them seven years to convince their respective families, and they never gave up on each other however hard the situation got!  

 

 

 

Anup and Nehal had the wedding of their dreams and we can’t stop gushing about their wedding pictures. Scroll on to see the most emotional & inspiring wedding of 2018 captured by 361 Degree Productions

Gorgeous Statement Hair Jewellery for the bride-to-be!

If you were under the impression that bridal hair accessories are limited to the age-old maang tikka, matha patti or passa, then we are here to prove your wrong!

 

From maang tikka with tassels, royal head chains to statement side tikka, the bridal hair accessories today have upped their game! The right hair accessories can completely transform your bridal look with that little oomph factor!

 

Here’s us listing some gorgeous bridal hair accessories which will not only enhance the hairdo, but also boost your bridal look on your mehendi, haldi and the D-day itself! Traditional or modern? You take your pick:

 

1. The royal courtesan look:

 

 

Designer – Anita Dongre

 

This bejewelled royal courtesan look where a necklace or a maang tika is used to embellish the bridal plait had to be first on our list. It looks so regal and stunning at the same time. Doesn’t it look divine?

 

2. New age juda pin:

 Juda pins are no longer the same old boring pins that they used to be! The new age juda pins can make any bridal hairdo, especially buns way prettier! Elaborate and pretty, a lot of them come with chains hanging from them which looks stunning and really graceful.

This south-indian wedding tradition in which you have flowers or gold or both put across the length of your hair is just too beautiful! With the changing times more and more brides are opting for a modern take on the traditional designs and it looks equally stunning too!

 

4. Wreaths:

Wreath or a floral tiara (as you call it) used to be a western wedding affair some time ago! Well, they’ve totally taken over the mehendi and haldi scenes in the Indian weddings by now! We love this bride’s statement wreath and how she has matched the colours of the flowers to her lehenga.

 

5. Head-chains:

We are having a really hard time to take our eyes off this chunky head-chain piece the bride is seen wearing! It’ll make for a great statement bridal hair accessory to wear at your mehendi, sangeet or cocktail function. What do you think?

 

6. Passa:

Once associated only with the Muslim weddings, the jhoomer or paasa is now a hot and trending bridal accessory. You can opt to wear only a paasa on the side or team it up with a Maang-tikka to get the complete bridal look. Worn either ways, we feel it adds a regal old-world charm to the bridal look!

 

7. Head Piece:

Bejewelled, beaded or plain-simple, these bridal headpieces look totally chic! You can add a maang-tikka in the centre or wear it just the way it is, the choice is all yours!

 

8. Matha patti:

You can wear it the traditional way or just on one side of your partition, it looks dreamy either ways! That being said, we feel matha-pattis look way more stunning than the Maang-tikka, for your wedding look!

 

9. Oversized polki chand tikka:

Well, if the maang tikka is going to be of this size, you can totally ditch the matha patti. *So Stunning*

 

10. Dainty flowers:

Don’t these dainty floral pins look too adorable! Get the ones with kundan, little petals or ghungroos which will take your bridal hairdo up a notch for your haldi or mehendi functions!  

 

11. The one that says ‘Ladkiwale’:
