Summer is the time when the heat outside gets turned up outside and the passion inside becomes intense. Wedding season is in full swing and the heat is on when it comes to looking fabulous for the big day. Have you stopped to think about what you should include in your Bridal Beauty Survival Kit? Even though I will celebrate 18 years of marital bliss this September, I still remember the craziness of the day. Every bride wants to feel confident and look amazing from the walk down the aisle to the first kiss and all the way to the last dance of the night. Here are some practical ideas to help you be prepared.

Ok, those bridesmaids should do much more for you at your wedding that just walk down the aisle ahead of you. They will need to help keep you looking great and the following is a list of items to have on hand… just in case!
Misadventures in Makeup
- Tissue – there will most likely be tears flowing whether tears of joy or sadness
- Q-Tips – to wipe away the smudges
- Concealer/Powder – for touch-ups to keen skin flawless throughout the day
- Mascara – to replace any wiped away
- Makeup Remover – for any mishaps caused by running makeup, etc
- Compact Mirror – to check the need for maintenance
- Lip Gloss – you want to keep your lips moist for those up-close and personal moments

Distress with the Dress
