It’s quite possibly the biggest day of your life. You’ve spent not months but years preparing for it, making sure every single detail is just right. On the morning of your wedding day, your photographer turns up to document those all-important, “getting ready” moments with you and your girls, but, oh no!

There’s no question that the vegan trend is on the rise; with more than 3.5million Brits now identifying as such, there’s no sign of it slowing down anytime soon*. With more and more of us switching to a fully plant-based diet, there has also been a rise in vegan celebratory foods at parties and even prospective couples having a vegan wedding to fit their ethical beliefs.

Charlotte Ricard-Quesada, founder of wedding planning company La Fete shares her tips for perfect wedding hair, so your locks are at their best for your big day.

 

Research 

On your wedding day, your hair is even more of an important feature than normal. The first step to take is actually looking at what you like, style wise. Is it an updo? Is it loose waves? Plaits? See what you are naturally drawn to and keep a Pinterest board or folder with your inspirations. Do also take your face shape and overall features into consideration to some extent: it’s certainly not an absolute rule but bear in mind that a style will look very different on a square jawline than on a heart shaped face.

The Key to a Sex – essful Marriage:

Couple with sparklers kissing

The key to sex – what is the key to a great sex life? There seems to be an eternal thirst for the answer, yet it seems ever-evasive and illusive. And it seems inevitable that many relationships do not find the answer, hence the high seperation and divorce rates we are all familiar with.

Now separation rates are not the only signifier of a relationship that has failed to capture the fire of an early dalliance with a lover. But its hard to disagree that a healthy sex life doesn’t play a major part in a fruitful relationship.
