It’s no secret that every couple wants their wedding to be special. After all, your wedding day is one of the most magical days of your life. You want your big day to not only be fun and enjoyable for your guests but also unique enough that it’s remembered for many years to come. One of the best ways to ensure that your wedding is as memorable as possible is to choose a theme. Vintage, Bollywood, Disney princesses, it doesn’t matter what – choose a theme that you love.

Themed weddings are not only more memorable but also a lot of fun to plan and partake in. Of course, they do come with a lot of work. But if you want your wedding to be remembered for many years to come, having a theme is a great idea. To make planning your themed wedding easier, here are a few useful tips. Take these on board and you can ensure that your big day goes off with a bang.

Get inspired

When it comes to wedding planning, inspiration is key. Take some time to look at various wedding theme ideas, and see if one of those stands out. Look online at photos of themed weddings, if you find any that you like, do more research into them. Look for photos, find ideas for each area of your wedding, from the food to the favours, and get an idea of what it will take to pull off each theme. Talk to your partner and see what they think – this is important as your theme needs to be something that you’re both happy with. It could even link to the two of you. For instance, if you met while traveling, you could host a travel-themed wedding. Find a way to link your relationship to your wedding theme and it will be even more special.

Pick a suitable venue

Once you’ve selected a theme, the next step is to find a suitable venue. Don’t get too hung up on this matching your theme perfectly as decorations can have a big impact on the look and feel of a space. What you want is to find a venue that’s affordable, has enough space for all your guests, and has the potential to be transformed. This means looking for somewhere that is simple and has plenty of areas for decorations. Make sure that when you are viewing venues that you check it’s okay to use decorations and other bits and bobs to transform it into a themed space. Most places will say yes, but it’s still worth checking, just in case.

Incorporate your theme into everything

If you want your themed wedding to be a success, you need to incorporate your chosen theme into every aspect of your day. From the transport to the entertainment, your theme needs to touch every part of your wedding. This might take some careful thinking and planning, but it is doable. For instance, if your wedding is country themed, the food should be a BBQ or a hog or ram roast – something that fits the theme. Or, if you’re planning a vintage day, you need to send out vintage wedding invites. If your theme is glamour, your drinks should include champagne and fancy cocktails – you get the idea. It’s the small details that make all the difference.

Make it fun

Whatever your wedding theme, the most important thing is to make it fun. Regardless of the type of wedding you’ve planned, the most important thing is that it’s a fun and enjoyable day. Don’t be afraid to have a laugh. If something goes wrong, don’t stress about it, focus on the good things instead.

A themed wedding is a great way to ensure that your big day is as fun and memorable as possible. It will take a bit of planning, but once you’ve got all the details ironed out, it will be a fantastic day.

Handbag Hero | Bioderma Make Up Removing Wipes

Handbag heroes. We all have them. You know the one I am talking about, the product you keep in your handbag and would be lost without. Some of us also buy them in batches and keep them in all our handbags, our car, and our desk. 
When the girls in Escentual asked me was I interested in trying the new Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micelle Solution Make Up Removing Wipes, I said yes, but I was very skeptical. I know Bioderma products have become a very well known, their reputation precedes them, but wipes are just something I have always been skeptical of. 
Wipes for me just don’t do it. They are never moist enough, there is never enough of the wipe and they always, ALWAYS, leave my very feeling rather delicate. And not in the way my current face products do. The majority of wipes I have used in the past have left my skin stinging. Especially in my under eye area.
These wipes did not do that. And the first thing that hit me about them was that they were a good size but also that there was so much moisture in them. I literally just needed one to clean my whole face and it lasted the whole time without drying out.
Why, you may ask,  does this make it a handbag hero? Well first off it was the ideal product to have while I was away at my cousin’s wedding. Crawling up to your room drunk at 5 or 6 in the morning does not normally mean you are in the mood to fully cleanse and wash your face. However these wipes did the job of removing most of my make up without leaving my face feeling sore and tender the morning after (my mum did drunkenly steal an use about half of the pack though).
I also find them great for throwing into my handbag when I am heading off out for whatever reason. You can’t always rely on the house you end up bunking in having the necessary tools to remove and cleanse the oul war paint off, so having a few wipes on hand just make it that bit easier. And they don’t particularly take up a lot of space either.
www.escentual.com is my go to site for premium beauty brands and are always the person I turn to when I want to try a new product, often having products to pre order before their general release. They will keep you in the loop with anything exciting about to be released.

What’s your handbag hero?
