Grooms Guide to Wedding Prep

There are huge details that go into planning a wedding; the venue, your theme or color scheme, the music, the flowers… the list goes on. With so much going into planning such an important life event, the groom tends to leave getting ready until the last minute. It’s true, he has a lot less to think about than a bride does, but it’s his day too, so we’ve come up with a short list to make preparing for the wedding a breeze for him.

Prepping your skin

Just like styling your hair, your skin and facial hair shouldn’t be an afterthought and shouldn’t be much of a change from what you normally do. Regularly washing and moisturizing your face is enough to get healthy skin and keep any spots at bay. However, if you have problem areas, feel free to see a dermatologist at least a month before the wedding, and they can give you professional guidance on how to handle your breakouts.

When it comes to styling your facial hair, stick with your usual style. You will feel most comfortable and confident when you feel most like yourself, and facial hair can be a defining characteristic. If you rock a beard, make sure it’s trimmed and styled neatly. There’s a ton of products on the market to help you achieve a perfectly groomed beard or mustache. If you want to go for a clean shaven look, ensure you’re using a new razor and quality shaving products. This way, you will get a soft face that’s free of nicks and bumps.

2018 New Pantone Color ~ Purple

This Insightful Post from our very own Asheville NC native florist Robert Hill of BobbyMark’s Design

With a New Year in full swing brings new colors and trends for the upcoming Wedding Season in 2018.  After reviewing some of the top leading Wedding Professionals and print Magazines in the industries here are a few things we can expect to see for 2018.

Pantone colors of Ultra Violet and other various shades of purple is where this season is headed. The main color of ultra violet color can seem quite strong to many but, there are ways to incorporate such a powerful color into the season’s trend.

Leading Professionals are saying the organic greens and mixed greens will be taking a back seat this season. But, I think we haven’t lost it entirely. We can still see early in the spring and summer wedding a nice mix of softer dusty greens mixed with softer shades of floral working in the Ultra Violet pop of color. Mixing these softer shades of ivory/creams, various shades of pinks and lavenders will be on target for early season’s Trend.

As we head into the later Summer/Fall Season we can expect more deep rich vibrant mix of colors giving a more Regal elegant feel to our Ultra Violet Trend. Deep rich vibrant shades of magenta, eggplants are sure to be seen in the later season’s mix. Some are saying the Royal wedding is leading the trend for this seasons color Palette ~ So will they select Purple?  We shall see…

With the trend in changing venues to unique Rooftops, Museums, Warehouses and other hidden finds. Professionals are telling us to expect more metals and woods in the mix of vessels with the floral mix and cleaner designs to this year’s trends. But, always keep in mind when working with the Ultra Violet colors in your venue, the darker the venue use lighter or strong vibrant contrasting colors to make your color of Ultra Violet pop and not blend into the venue.
