5 Months to go

4 Months to go
Plan your hen ‘do’! Our pamper parties are the perfect way to celebrate your upcoming wedding with your girlfriends, sisters, mothers and mother-in-laws! You just decide whether you want a daytime or evening get together and the venue for the pamper party then sit back and relax and look forward to being Pampered 2 Perfection. For further details visit

3 Months to go
The last thing you want is to be afraid to smile in your wedding photographs. If you are self conscious about your teeth now is the time to get them done. Make an appointment with your dentist to discuss what treatments are available to you. Alternatively, for a dazzling white smile try Crest white stripes whitening kit, use twice a day for 10 days for long-lasting, professional-level white smile!

2 Months to go
Planning a wedding is like a military operation, which is why a bride needs a stress relief survival plan for when it all gets too much!
Get the girls round, crack open a bottle of wine and catch up with their lives. Talking about something other than your wedding can help you recognise that there's more to life, which will help calm you down. Why not have a Pampered 2 Perfection pamper party and be pampered while you catch up with a nice bit of girly gossip?

1 Month to go
For healthy nails rub nourishing oil into your cuticles daily and lightly file the tips every two days. Try Skintruth’s cuticle oil with Rosemary and Neroli, (£3 available to buy from Pampered 2 Perfection) formulated to nourish and repair damaged cuticles and encourages growth of strong healthy nails. This vitamin rich oil can be used on polished and unpolished nails. To condition your hands try massaging in a hand cream last thing at night for at least a month before the wedding. You'll soon see a difference.

1 Week to go
Finally, there is the matter of unwanted hair. Waxing eliminates nicks and cuts from shaving and leaves your skin smooth and stubble free. But, if you have never had a waxing treatment, try one a month or so before the wedding to see if you have any adverse effects. If not, schedule your waxing treatments one week before the big day. Don’t wait until the last minute to wax unless you want to risk skin irritation or red splotches.

2 Days to go
Get your hands ready for that ring-on-finger moment by giving them some TLC before your wedding day.
Your gorgeous dress and glowing smile may be the first things on show on your big day, but for much of the rest of the day your hands will be centre of attention - particularly your left hand. It's no good spending weeks preparing to look utterly breathtaking if you neglect your nails, so make the most of your hands and treat yourself to a luxury spa manicure with a classic French polish.

We offer a further range of treatments in addition to the treatments mentioned in our countdown. Please visit our website for further info.

Wedding Skincare Package £130
Receive 5 monthly luxury spa facials and a skincare kit to use at home.

Waxing Package £30
Eyebrow Wax, Underarms, Bikini and Lower Leg

Hints and Tips on event planners and do I really need one?

An event planner who helps brides and grooms plan their special day is called a wedding consultant, wedding planner, wedding coordinator or a bridal consultant. This planner specialises in planning weddings professionally.

Using a wedding consultant to plan your wedding day has always been viewed as a luxury that only the rich and famous enjoyed. This is not so much the case anymore and the number of people using wedding planners continues to rise every day.

Planning a wedding can be like a full time job if a bride decides to go it alone. This type of event involves a lot of time with so much to learn and do and often not enough time to do it all. This event planner has to be highly organised and always knows what to do if things go wrong. He/she knows exactly who to contact when the need arises.

A professional wedding planner has to be extremely creative by nature. He or she also needs to have a very good sense of style and know what trends are current and which ones are outdated. The event planner also needs to have a personality that connects well with clients in order to understand them and to have a clear picture of their personal and specific needs for their special day.

A good event planner has lots of connections with the best vendors and works at getting his/her client the best value for their money. There is usually a budget to maintain and endless details tailored to the bride and groom. A wedding planner can also save the bride and groom a lot of money as well as time. This is because they usually know which vendors are reasonably priced and the quality of work involved. The event planner is usually in a better position to negotiate and get discounts from vendors they have worked with before.
Event planners will help their clients avoid disasters at their functions because they oversee all of the operations of the day to the last detail. Should there be an emergency at the event, the planner is usually better prepared to deal with the crisis rather than having the client try to figure out what to do.

The costs involved in hiring such a professional may be surprisingly affordable given the amount of details they have to work with. Planners also tailor their cost according to the client's budget and help them to stay within their budget.

Without a wedding planner on hand, many brides and grooms run themselves ragged as the wedding day approaches. Some couples have even complained of not enjoying their wedding day because of the stress. An event planner comes in handy at this point because the couple has nothing to worry about since all the details are taken care of. The end result of having an event planner or a wedding consultant, in this case, is well worth it. The clients end up with a stress free day and they are able to enjoy every moment of their special occasion.

After the magic and the festivities of Christmas Day have ended, your family and friends may not be ready for the magic and the mood of Christmas to end. All the presents have been opened, and dinner has been eaten.
However, the excitement of the day lives on. In my family we often get together with all my in laws and have another Christmas day , the day after Here are some tips for organising the perfect After Christmas party with your family and friends. This is the time we exchange gifts with my in laws and sample some of the Christmas goodies.

Even though all the presents have been given, and dinner has been eaten you can still get together for an evening of spending time with your friends and family. we always did this the night of December 26 All of my parents' friends had children close to the same age as my siblings and me. After Christmas, many people want to party with their friends, but have simply grown tired of Christmas, Christmas music, and all things related to Christmas. This is what we've always referred to as the after party for Christmas. During the after party, you can wear your new outfit you got for Christmas, including any new jewelry and perfume. During the after Christmas party you're still enjoying the spirit of the season by spending time with your friends and family and showing off your new Christmas gifts, and exchanging new gifts with the family we didnt see on Christmas day. We dont normally have another Christmas dinner , just lots of other lovely food, games and drinks
you can still enjoy the magic of Christmas by spending time with family and friends. If however you have seen all the family on Chrismas day, you are still able to have another party with all your friends and family with out exchanging presents.I hope that you will use these suggestions to help make the mood and the magic of Christmas last well beyond Christmas Day.
