Intimate Wedding Reception

My brother and his wife sent shockwaves across the country when they announced their nuptials. They did so by sending everyone who wasn't invited to the wedding, pictures of themselves on their wedding day. There were only 12 people invited to their wedding. And while I was invited, I wasn't able to attend...
So you can imagine the gossip and drama over all that. Except, there really wasn't any of that. The 11 people who went to the wedding were thrilled, and so were those that got the beautiful announcements.
I say all this to say that YOU DON'T NEED A $40,000 BUDGET WEDDING to get hitched, be happy and live your life in harmony. To this day, my brother brags about how the $900 "investment" yielded a return of almost $5,000 in gifts and currency. Pretty remarkable, right?
Maybe you're done with the stress of relatives, distant friends and the looming budget. Would you consider a small, intimate affair instead? This photo shows how glam a simple wedding luncheon can be when it's small and beautifully put together. And don't worry about whose house to host it; you can rent small intimate rooms at hotels and even fancy restaurants. Let these venues do all the work for you. In today's market, and based on a bunch of other things, you can plan to spend about $100 per guest for this type of affair. If that sounds pricey, you only have to invite the must-haves. Whomever they may be. Friends. Family. Other...
It's your wedding. You choose!

How-To: Boho Braided Half Crown
The Beauty Department just published this super cute hair tutorial that I had to share with my gals and my brides on Vingle! As you can see, it's super easy and straight forward in the instructions. Try this out and let me know what you think! 1. Wave hair. 2. Gather and section off the top half of your hair (temple to temple) 3. Roll and clip this section up and away. 4. Next section off one inch sections on your right and left side from your hairline, near your temple (this is the area slightly above your ear). Braid this section vertically down. 5. Backcomb the braid instead of tying it off. Repeat on both sides. 6. Bring braids forward towards the face and unclip the top section of hair (step 3). Allow this section to fall and blend with the bottom half of your hair. 7. Take both braids from each side. 8. Bring these braids to the middle back of your head, cross them over each other. 9. Using a bobby pin that blends with your hair color, fasten both braids. 10. Now make one inch sections below your first set of braids on each side. Repeat the first set of braids we did (Follow steps 4 and 5 ). Make sure the braid is directly under your last braids. 11. Once both sides are braided bring hair around to the middle back of your head and cross them over each other. 12. Using a bobby pin that blends with your hair color, fasten both braids. 13. Once everything is fastened adjust your curls on the bottom half and style using a texture spray. 14. Finish off waves and look with a weightless protectant. 15. Make any further styling adjustments to your look. and Enjoy an easy DIY half up boho braided up-do. Photo & Post by Carachele Tyvan
