Kim's Bridal Shower!

All of us here at Amelishan Bridal were so excited for Kim's Bridal Shower. She's getting married on Oct 3rd so we knew we had to have it soon. We decided we wanted it to be a surprise so we made up some excuse to all meet at The Mineshaft in Hartford for dinner. Which isn't too unusual for us so she had no idea it was going to be her shower.

We all got there early to set up and get ready and waited patiently for the Bride to Be to arrive. When she was about 6 minutes late I figured I'd give her a call, because after all what would we do if the bride forgot to come and never shows up?! So I gave her a call, and guess what, she forgot! She told us just to go ahead without her and she'd be there in an hour! I have never heard of the bride not showing up for her shower! So, we had to blow the surprise and tell her to get her butt over there because this was her surprise shower. LOL She felt so bad!
But we all had a blast, even while we were waiting for her to arrive. Below are some pictures of her with her presents and some of the whole group.

We love you Kim! Even if you were an hour late for your Bridal Shower!! :)

Pick Out A New Scent For Your Wedding Day

One of the wedding tips I love to give is to pick out a new perfume for your special day. It's wonderful because it's fresh and new for you and because scent is one of the biggest inhibitors of memory, if you wear it on special days or anniversaries your husband will smell you and wonder why he's feeling giddy and so in love again.

Start looking at least 2 months before so you can experiment with the scents and make sure that they react well with your chemistry and that none of them give you a headache or make you feel nauseous. The best way to do this on the cheap is to collect samples from department stores or Sephora. Just tell the makeup consultant what you're up to and they will be more than happy to dig up samples for you from the back or make the samples for you. Just remember to try different scents, from Sexy Siren Bride to Romantic Bride to determine what feel your going for on your wedding day.

When you've found the perfect scent don't forget to spray it on before you put on your wedding dress as some fabrics like silk and taffeta are easily stained by perfume. And save that sample to take with you on your Honeymoon, it'll be easier to pack than the regular size and less breakable. Try to save some until at least your first anniversary, because trust me, as soon as your Husband gets a whiff of you and the memories of your wedding day start rushing in, you won't be able to stop him from sniffing your neck!
