Your wedding will be one of the biggest days of your life, so you will want to remember every single moment. You spend hours choosing your wedding dress, your hairstyle and make-up. So, now it is time to consider the perfume you want for such a special occasion. Your wedding perfume should be really gorgeous to wow your guests and capture the magic of the day. So, when you smell it in the years to come, your mind will be filled with wedding day memories.
Spring is one of the most refreshing times of the year to get married to the love of your life, especially
when you want to try all sorts of funky and gorgeous hairstyles for your big day. This means that you get
to experiment with your creativity and have fun without worrying about any kinds of boundaries.
Especially when it comes to bridal choices, you can go wild with choosing several chic hairstyles that will
help you to look effortlessly gorgeous like never before. Since this energising season encourages you to
try out new styles, it is your chance to boost your confidence and self-esteem.
If you have been looking for that one touch that can help you to make your appearance flawless, this
might be the perfect chance for you to try out new hairstyle ideas with hair extensions. For your ease,
here is a list of some of the most fashionable hairstyles you get your hands on.
Braids are one of the most elegant and stylish hairstyles that you can try out with seamless hair
extensions this year. Being a bride, you want your special day to be the favourite memory of your life, and
your hair plays a significant role in that.
Not only does this hairstyle come in handy, but it can also embellish your look as it can go well with
almost any style of dress. Especially when you are getting married in spring, different types of sleek
braids can help you to keep your hair away from your face when you are getting photographed with the
love of your life.
In addition to that, adding hair extensions will also aid you in achieving a fuller look without being too
obvious. This hairstyle will become the language of love for you and will make your partner go gaga over
A Low Chignon
While most people think that the chignon hairstyle might take hours to style properly and requires lots
of time and effort to look perfect, the reality is contrary to that as it can be simply replicated in minutes
and they look even more impressive with hair extensions.
Just like every bride, you might also want everything at your wedding to go perfectly well, and a chignon
will help you to achieve the goal. In addition to that, it will also look graceful when worn with a beautiful
net veil on it.
To style it out, you can simply start by forming a low ponytail close to the end of your neck and secure it
with a proper elastic band. You can also split the ponytail into two sections and twist them both to form
a perfect bun or chignon.
Nothing makes a bride look chicer at a spring wedding than beautifully styled beach waves. It is one of
the most effortless and exquisite looks and is also quite popular among most spring brides.
If you tend to have thin hair, you can also use any type of hair extension to enhance the volume a bit
more and make your look more elegant.
Tattoos are very personal. Choosing whether you show them or hide them on your wedding day is a very individual choice that only you can decide. Some brides or grooms may want to show off their tattoos as they are meaningful and part of who they are. Others may decide they want to cover up their tattoos because they feel they don't match the style of their dress. A few brides may only want to cover up for the photographs. Many don’t intentionally hide their tattoos at all; they may naturally be covered by their dress or hairstyle.
Choose whatever you feel most comfortable with. Remember, your wedding is about the love that you share as a couple and your partner loves the skin you're in already!

There are many benefits which outweigh the small amount of money you’d save. So, we spoke to the experts at Butterfly Hair and Makeup to find out why hiring a pro is essential for your special day.
