The Mother Of The Bride Is Just As Important As Her Daughter
Yes, the wedding day is one of the most important in a
bride's life. But it may not have been possible without the
help and guidance of her mum in the planning and organising of the

heavy make-up - you don't want to look like a clown. It is
best to try your make-up out before the big day, in order to obtain
the correct look and colours. Treat yourself and your daughter to a
makeover with a trained beauty consultant.
Overall, your look should be elegant, not 'over the top', and
slightly understated - not to deter from the beauty of the
Above all, have a GREAT DAY!
