AWS

With the Autumn Winter 2017 Bridal Week featuring an array of the usual suspects, exposed backs, high lace necklines, and dramatic trains, the bridal trends for this season aren’t holding back. Think all of the above, with a little more oomph. Welcome folky embroideries, floral embellishments, and the most opulent of hues. Here, the reigning bridal trends of AW17.

UP IN THE HAIR

Bridal Hair

With major references to the AW17 Bridal shows, an array of soft and wispy chignons could be seen taking centre stage, capturing a romantic and timeless feel. To achieve this look, we’ll let you in on our Sparistas best hair care secret, Oribe’s Dry Texturising Spray (£20). Perfect for adding easy texture to an understated and artistic style. If you’re not a fan of your hair up, then this seasons hair must-have is the gold leaf hair vine (£80), teamed with loose waves, or even soft braids, it adds that touch of ethereal and avant-garden style chic.

SAY YES TO THE DRESS

Bridal Dress

Evolving from simple off the shoulder style gowns of the summer, to cold-shouldered floral details, designers have taken flowers to a whole new level this season. We’re talking about the most exquisite, so-delicate-you’ll-want-to-cry 3D embellishments, and volumes of tulle and ruffles. We’re completely in love with this beautiful gown from the incredible Bridal design house, Mira Zwillinger. The barely there nude bodice beneath the sheer white tulle ensures that this modern and ethereal take on a classic style silhouette screams more is more.

BOLD MAKEUP

Bridal Makeup

As a daring contrast to a white or ivory gown, keep your skin fresh and dewy, and then add a bold statement with a vampy style lip. Donned by the squad of brides at the Naeem Khan show, be brave and bold with Nars’ Audacious Lipstick in colour ‘Charlotte’ (£25). For a softer look, try a nude lip with a slightly contoured dewy finish on the skin – we’re looking at you, Armani luminous silk foundation (£40). These makeup looks aren’t just limited to the Bridal party -Autumnal beauty and wardrobe trends are too good to miss out on!

PUT A RING ON IT

TH Ring

Wedding Countdown

As Craig David once crooned way back when, a lot can happen in 7 days! With just one week to go until the big day, we’re hoping that your beauty prep plan is set in stone. Even so, we’ve listed a few top tips that will help you be the best version of yourself that you can possibly be.

DAY 7

Diet

Add that extra bit of HIIT training to help you burn fat in a short space of time! You must try one of our favourite cycle classes by Psycle London, offering high intensity, low impact, head to toe workouts on a bike – believe us when we say you’ll leave their studio on an exercise HIGH!

DAY 6

Facial

Why not try our Anti Age Facial, a treatment that purifies, nourishes and tones the skin? If not, we love the Bio Lifting Mask by CHANTECAILLE. Often described as a face-lift in a jar, the revitalising and cooling formula virtually irons out your face! If you have sensitive skin however, stick to calming facials before you try out new products so soon to the wedding.

DAY 5

Food

Step away from the G&T! Cut back on alcohol, salt and other foods that make you bloat, and incorporate green juices to maximise on de-bloating and antioxidant consumption/ digestion. If you don’t have time to prepare everything yourself then try out celebrity favourite, Plenish Juice Clease, a premium delivery service offering fresh, juice cleanses – they even have specialised Bridal packages to help boost energy levels, achieve glowing skin, and lose a few pounds! Food wise, think veggies, healthy fats like avocado and fatty fish like salmon, loaded with skin-glowing antioxidants, they’re perfect for pre wedding day prep.

DAY 4

Brows

You must have planned your waxing and threading for around now, but why not give eyebrow mapping a try? Experts determine exactly where your ideal brow should start, arch and end #eyebrowenvy. We’re so into this treatment, take a look at Benefit’s free of charge brow-mapping service, and see what a well-shaped brow can do for your face!

DAY 3

Massage

What the bride wants, the bride gets 😉 Destress with one of our Deep Tissue Massages… any excuse!

DAY BEFORE

Nails A

Mani and Pedi time! Check out OPI’s amazing range of Nudes and taupes to suit your skin tone here. Choose from best-selling beige tinged taupes like ‘Berlin There Done That‘ or try a taste of sweet creamy nudes like ‘Dulce De Leche‘ to achieve the look of naked nails.

Nails

Take a moment to step back and relax. All of your hard work, (tantrums) and excitement have all been leading up to tomorrow; now it’s time to enjoy the best day of your life. Promise.

If you want to book in for some of your favourite treatments in the final week before your special day, then Contact USPAAH on 020 7101 3534 or email concierge@uspaah.com.

It’s not long until you make it official with the love of your life, and no doubt you’re full of excitement and butterflies. It’s the beginning of a new chapter in your lives together, and you’ll want to cherish every moment of it. Amongst all of the madness (and excitement!), it’s easy for you to forget about the small, yet not so small details you need to consider before the big day. Our guide will ensure that you look every bit the blushing, glowing, beautiful bride when the day arrives, so keep scrolling if you don’t want to risk any fake-tan fiascos or makeup disasters.

HAIR AND MAKE-UP

Makeup

By now you should have narrowed down the two or three styles you like, and preparation is key if you want to look your very best, K-Midd style. If you’re going for your hair down, we particularly love the versatile Dry Texturizing Spray by Oribe, which adds lift at the roots, texture and volume, and is a clients favourite. Luckily, it also comes in a travel size so that you can keep this with you all day!  Whether you’re going for the natural I-woke-up-like-this, or a full blown Kardashian look, feeling comfortable and beautiful is a must. Minimum fuss, maximum impact.

BODY

Tan

Obviously you need the best of the best for your Wedding Day, and we’ve got the secret to a bronzed glow to rival Jennifer Anniston’s! Sienna X and Vitavita Liberata tanning products are both celeb favourites in the industry, no streaks, funny smelling fumes and they’re incredibly long lasting. Hey – you could even stretch your tan out until the honeymoon! If you’d prefer to build a tan over time, we recommend this St.Tropez Gradual Tan In Shower LotionLeading tanning expert, James Harknett, shares his tanning tips for brides: “There are finishes on the skin that compliment all complexions and occasions.” 

SKIN

Skin

Revive your skin care regime! Cleanse, tone, and moisturise every morning and night—and don’t forget to exfoliate twice a week. “Who cares if I don’t look radiant on my wedding day”, said no one, EVER. We also recommend that you book a facial… or three! To keep your skin looking plump and nourished between facials, try radiance treatment and mask, Good Genes by Sunday Riley; did someone say face lift in a bottle?

LAST BUT NOT LEAST… RELAX

massage

Wedding planning at this crucial stage is stressful, and don’t we know it! Book yourself a massage and enjoy a bit of relaxation and pampering to de-stress. Spoil yourself – you deserve it.

We offer Bridal Packages, as well as hair and makeup packages, starting from £92.
