scottishcharmm-deactivated20130 said: I need help with wedding skincare, I have left it pretty late i get married in 2 n a half months. I am on a budget so can't really afford high end stuff! I'm a drugstore girl through and through! So anything you can find in superdrug/boots is my thing! I need something to even my skintone out? and just something to clear my face of little pimples and blackheads?! help :( thank youu!

i’m a drugstore girl too, but sometimes i splurge on the clinique system if i’m having major breakout problems…  for the past couple of months i have been using neutrogena oil free acne wash (the pink grapefruit kind) after reading rave reviews.  i’m a big fan, but if i use it twice a day every day it has a tendency to dry out my skin which could have just been because i started using it during the winter.

check out this marie claire article "how to wash your face", drink no less than 64oz of water per day, and try out 5 natural ways to remove blackheads.  2 months gives you plenty of time to get your skincare under control!

anyone else have suggestions they would like to share?

i’m about to start editing photos from the wedding i photographed this weekend so i have a question for you guys…
do you prefer wedding photography that is obviously heavily photoshopped with various actions and color alterations or do you like a more natural look?

just a heads up: i will be taking a vacation [or staycation with day trips, tbd] from july 9-17 which is coming up this weekend.  honestly, i have things queued up, but i think it would be WAY more fun to have some guest posts while i am gone!
if you have any awesome wedding ideas that you are dying to share and would like to do a guest post in my absence, please send me a message via submit or my ask box!?

modest wedding dresses

woahmissjones asked:

Hi there!
My fiances family are Mennonites, and I am having a really hard time picking a dress that will satisfy both me and them. I was wondering if you could do a post with some “modest” (sleeved) dresses that still have some style? Lace is my dream. I just cant seem to find any that I dont find..boring.
Thanks!

ok, i have very little experience with what is considered appropriate for a mennonite wedding so hopefully the dresses that i found are modest enough.  another suggestion for you if you are having a hard time finding a dress that you like is to have a local tailor custom make a dress for you.

weareunbreakable-deactivated201 said: Was wondering if you could help me out (or anyone that follows your Tumblr). I tried on this Mikaella dress (although some people have told me it's Paloma Blanca... and it's on both websites so I don't know). I'm looking for dresses that are very similar (so I can compare dresses and prices). Here's some pictures: http://kaylaellisdesign.com/wedding/dresses/fav1.jpg, http://kaylaellisdesign.com/wedding/dresses/fav3.jpg, http://kaylaellisdesign.com/wedding/dresses/fav2.jpg. Any help would be appreciated!! Thanks :)

i love the back and cap sleeves!  it looks like the one from this wedding, but they don’t say who designed it, only that it came from david’s bridal… or this alfred sung?

can anyone else provide some suggestions?

what kind of flower is this?
are they the ones that look like big dandelions when they dry out?

favorite wedding related tumblrs?

asking again and this time i will explain myself better in hopes of getting more than a couple responses.

you can promote yourself here if you have a wedding tumblr [content should be at least 90% wedding related]… what i am trying to do is write an article about wedding related tumblrs.  i’m trying not to include anything with “fuck yeah” in the name because it doesn’t comply with the rules of the site that i am writing for.

i need at the VERY LEAST 10 so please comment here, send it to my ask box, whatever you need to do.
