Q. Bridal Makeup Tips
Answer is.

Want to look like the perfect bride on your special day? Here are a few make-up tips to keep in mind.

Tip 1: Opt for the smokey eye look. Move away from the traditional doe-eyed make-up and opt for something bolder by donning smokey eyes. This look suits the Indian skin tone and pairs with all kinds of outfits. You can opt for bronze tones if you do not want to apply black eyeshadow. 

 

Tip 2: KISS i.e. keep it simple, stupid! We know it is your wedding, but you don’t have to go overboard and use every cosmetic in your make-up kit. The trick to looking good is to enhance your features and hide your flaws and use make-up to do so. Ask your make-up artist to take a look at your outfit and decide on a look accordingly.

 

Tip 3: Style your hair according to your face. You don’t always have to opt for a bun. You can let your hair down or have a half up-do depending on the shape of your face. People who have an oval face can practically opt for any hairstyle, but those who want to hide their chubby cheeks can try leaving their hair open to camouflage it. 

 

Tip 4: Don’t forget your hands and feet. With your face hogging all the limelight, getting a mani-pedi may slip your mind. But be sure to book an appointment a few days prior to the event and choose a nail colour which complements your outfit and overall look.

 

Tip 5: Plan in advance. Once you decide what you are wearing, fix an appointment with your make-up and hair expert to try different looks which will suit you. This will save you from any surprises on the D-Day and also prevent last minute changes in your look.

Initiating the marriage proposal


Christian marriage proposals are initiated by relative or friends, paper ads or matrimonial sites. Once both sides are satisfied with the credentials, the bridegroom’s family formally sees the bride. If they are happy, the date for engagement is fixed. 


Engagement


The engagement ceremony is held at the bride’s house and conducted by the pastor. The bridegroom comes to the bride’s house bringing her an engagement sari along with other gifts like flowers, betel nuts, rock sugar, turmeric and so on. The close relatives of the bride and bridegroom attend the engagement. The bride changes into the sari gifted to her. Then the pastor prays for the couple and rings and Bibles are exchanged. The engagement is then confirmed.

The bridegroom then gifts the bride her wedding attire and other auspicious items like fruits, flowers, betel nuts, rock sugar, turmeric and so on. These are brought to the house by womenfolk from the bridegroom’s side on large trays or tamboolams. 
Christian Nadar weddings take place in the church, mostly during evenings.

The bride is dressed in a white silk sari with gold zari or white gown while the bridegroom wears a formal suit. The bride’s face is covered by a white veil that trails till the ground and is carried by flower girls, small girls, dressed in pretty dresses with lace. Nadar Christian brides take pride in gold jewellery and wear a lot of it.

The thali is blessed by the priest and elders in the family and the groom ties it around the bride’s neck. Once the thali is tied, the veil is pushed away from the face. Gold rings are also exchanged. After this, the bride and the groom sign the marriage register. 


Wedding Reception

Q. SECRETS OF HAPPY MARRIAGES
Answer is.

Marriages are made in heaven but have to be nurtured on earth. Like a beautiful garden, marriage too needs to be watered and nurtured for the flowers of happiness to bloom. Here are a few secrets that happy spouses around the world know and practise. Use them to enhance your marriage too.

Acceptance
Accept your spouse for what he or she is. Each person is an individual with unique qualities, likes and dislikes. Do not attempt to transform your spouse into what your idea of an ideal mate is. This can create friction in your marriage and leave your spouse hurt that you don't care for his or her feelings.

Romance
Love is the most important ingredient in any marriage. Be creative in expressing your love to your spouse. Surprise your spouse by taking him or her out to a special candle-lit dinner. Write love notes and slip it into your spouse's wallet or handbag so he or she can find them.

Caring
Romance is an important ingredient in any marriage and so is caring for your spouse. Looking after your spouse's needs is important. It could be as simple as picking out attire from your spouse's wardrobe for him or her to wear or cooking your spouse's favourite dish.

Commitment
Marriage is all about commitment. In today's world where men and women have plenty of opportunities to mix, it is easy to get into an extra-marital affair. This apart, the internet offers many avenues for cyber affairs that could later turn into real affairs. To keep your marriage happy, resist the temptation to have a fling or extra-marital affair.

Family
In the Indian context, the family plays an important role in helping a couple resolve any conflicts. Build a warm relationship with your spouse's parents and relatives. In times of trouble, they could bring a mature perspective to the scene.

Give & Take
Each of us has our own individual set of values, interests and habits. Living happily with another person calls for a bit of compromise. This give-and-take is what keeps couples together.

Don't Play The Blame Game
When things go wrong, don't blame your spouse. Instead try to see what can be done to sort out the problem. This will go a long way in strengthening your marital bond.

Incorporate these thoughts into your marriage and watch it brim with happiness.
