While all-inclusive resorts come with ‘mandatory fun’ their inclusive honeymoon packages afford you the luxury and a carefree experience.

Medan all-inclusive resorts kommer med “obligatorisk roliga aktiviteter” erbjuder deras inclusive smekmånads-paket lyxig och bekymmerslös upplevelse. Å andra sidan har ett enkel Bed & Breakfast hotell betydligt lägre priser och där är du ju fortfarande vara på din drömdestination. Det viktigaste är att väga dina olika prioriteringar och ta reda på vad som viktigtigast för dig – lyxhotell eller en drömdestination.

7 Tips to Glowing Wedding Skin

 1. Everyday-routine:
If you really want to to the best for your skin, you’ll need to start a skincare routine about a year before. It’s no problem if you just don’t have that long before your wedding day – just adopt these skincare habits as soon as possible and you’re good to go.

 2. Eat More Watermelon:
No matter what your skin type is (oily, dry, normal or combo) it craves water. Drinking water helps (also try with a slice of lemon in it), but snacking on watermelon works too and whats better now we’re in the summer season. Other super foods for your face such as: grapefruit, broccoli and lettuce are also good.

 3. Deep Clean With a Mask:
A mask will not replace your daily skin care routine; it’s only to enhance it. Since the mask stays on longer, it will help melt the hard sebum (or oily substance) in your pores, something washing alone won’t do.” If your skin is oily, use a mask every other day. If you have dry skin, once or twice per month should keep oil and dirt from building up.

 4. “Shrink” Your Pores With Microdermabrasion:
You can’t actually change the size of your pores. “The deeper a pore is, the bigger it looks on the skin’s surface”. BUT… you can minimize the depth of your pores to make them look smaller. Use Microdermabrasion, glycolic acid and other chemical peels that exfoliate the layers of bad skin and minimize pore surface.

 5. Use Salt Scrubs to Soften Elbows:
This is something brides often forget about. Add a bath to your weekly routine and add bath salts with sodium bicarbonate. The sodium bicarbonate will break down dry patches and make your skin a sponge for moisture.

 6. Use Skin-Specific Moisturizer:
-OILY SKIN: You don’t need to add more moisture, but you need to hydrate. Look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid or ferulic acid, both will help your skin maintain water.
-DRY SKIN: Stick with the hyaluronic acid or ferulic acid, but don’t worry about finding an oil-free formula. Your skin craves moisture.
-BREAKOUT SKIN: Choose a moisturizer that’s noncomedogenic. It should say so on the bottle.
-SENSITIVE SKIN: Your go-to is a fragrance-free product.

 7: Control Oily Skin With Blotting Sheets:
If you’re on the go, blotting papers will help keep your face shine-free. If you need a more advanced solution: use a mild face wash, skip the toner and add a lightweight oil-free moisturizer. Excessive face washing will kick oil production into overdrive.

7.Guides

If wedding venue is hidden and it’s not easy to find it, you can guide your guests through the signs or placards along the route.

8.Children at the wedding

Children can bring some magical and unforgettable moments to the wedding ceremony, but on the another side it can turn to a running and messing around. If you are having a lot of children at your wedding, it is good to keep them entertained. In that case, you may consider hiring qualified nannies and set up activity corner in a separate room if possible. If your budget doesn’t allow it, you can ask the venue if there is extra room or separate area which parents can use if their children need some time away from the other guests or they need changing.

Be carful while choosing the food you would like to serve the youngest one. Most of the kids will eat mainly funny food such as mini pizzas, hot-dogs and french fries, so it would be good if you can spare some money aside for their little treat.

9.Memorable Dessert

Make an impression with a spectacular dessert or cake! If you are not wedding cake kind of couple don’t feel obligate to have one at your wedding. Be creative and find your own alternative! We are suggesting cupcakes served in tower form, Candy Bar or Cookie Buffet.

10. Alcohol free drinks

Don’t forget alcohol free drinks at your wedding! Soda or mineral water is a good start but think outside of the box and offer your guests a special summer drink such as home made lemonade, fruit slushies and smoothies.
