Sareh Nouri Fall 2016 Collection

NEW YORK, Fall Bridal Fashion Week, fashion designer Sareh Nouri, introduced her Fall 2016 collection at The London Hotel in NYC.  For this collection Sareh pulled elements and inspiration from her Persian heritage. A history rich in art that is defined by detailed designs and patterns visualized in its mosaics, calligraphy, miniature paintings and intricate weaving.
 “The fabrics, laces and patterns that I selected and designed for this collection are reminiscent of an ancient, yet modern artistic culture” said Sareh Nouri. From the layering of sophisticated laces to the long dramatic trains, each dress in the collection lends itself to detail, intricacy and romance with the use of long lace sleeves, dramatically detailed backs and elegant embellishments. The collection stays true to its mission of light-weight and ultra-luxurious gowns, each with impeccable structure and fit with a built-in bustier, entirely hand-sewn in the U.S.A. Sareh Nouri’s exquisite Fall 2016 collection captures the essence of chic luxury inspired by traditional design, directly reflecting the designer herself and her Persian heritage, further setting her apart as a leader in the fashion industry.

Bridal Beauty Countdown

When planning the big day, it can be easy to forget to pamper yourself. You will be the center of attention, so make sure to schedule time for yourself to pull off your desired bridal look! From radiant skin to a bright smile, this bridal beauty timeline will ensure you feel and look the most beautiful on your wedding day.

4-6 months before:

  • Schedule hair and makeup appointments with desired hairstylists and make-up artists. Have a few trial runs with different stylists before booking your glam squad for the big day.
  • If you want to experiment with a different hairstyle and cut, now is the time to do it! Don’t wait until the month of your wedding to get the haircut you’ve been eyeing.
  • Start a new skincare routine and schedule a monthly facial leading up to the wedding day.
  • Experiment with sunless tanning products if you desire a little glow on your wedding day. Nobody wants to look orange when walking down the aisle, but there are plenty of products out there for all different skin types, so try a few.
  • Visit your dermatologist if there are any skin issues you would like to have treated. Treatments such as “peels” and microdermabrasion sessions can help rejuvenate your skin.

bridal facial

















1 month before:

  • Get a hair trim if needed to get rid of fuzzy split ends.
  • Begin a teeth whitening treatment. You can start an at-home system or opt for a professional application. Cut back on coffee, red wine and soda to prevent staining!

2 weeks before:

  • If you color your hair, make sure to touch up your roots. Stick to your current style and color to avoid any unexpected surprises.
  • Schedule manis and pedis for the day before the wedding.

1 week before:

  • Get brows/face/bikini hair removal done a week prior to avoid redness from sensitivity.
  • Get final facial and body treatments to make sure you have a maximum glow on your wedding day.
  • Get plenty of beauty sleep!

1-2 days before:

  • Apply self-tanner or schedule a professional application for sun-kissed skin.
  • Get mani and pedi. Bring your own color to fix any last minute chips if necessary!
  • Get a deep-conditioning hair treatment to give your locks some extra love.
  • Exfoliate and moisturize your entire body. Smooth and soft skin is a must for your wedding day!
  • Apply an at home brightening face mask. Make sure it has been tested before and won’t cause adverse reaction.

bridal make-up and hair
































On the wedding day:

  • Shower 4-5 hours before the ceremony.
  • Get hair styled at least 3 hours before ceremony.
  • Start make-up application 1-2 hours before the ceremony. Don’t forget to pack some touch-up essentials!

Whether you want a high or low maintenance look, make sure to invest in your wedding day beauty prep! By following this schedule you will be every bit the glowing, blushing and beautiful bride when the big day arrives.

Things to Consider When Planning a Themed Wedding

Themed weddings can be an interesting idea. They can be wonderful spectacles, intertwining the theme with the personalities of the happy couple to facilitate a truly unique, romantic occasion. Or they can be an absolute horror show (in some cases quite literally!).

Organising a regular wedding usually involves significant expense and effort, and arranging one around a set theme can add on plenty of extra work. It can all be worth it in the end, but there are a few important elements to consider before going ahead.

Are You Sure?

Your wedding day is supposed to be the most magical, memorable and important in your life. Do you really want to look back on it and regret making your vows dressed as Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker? But, if such a theme brought the two of you together, then it can be a fitting way to commit to each other and a beautiful thing when done well. Seriously think it through beforehand, though.

The Venue

Whatever theme you decide on, finding the perfect location to suit your decorative type is a necessity. For many a classy venue such as the incredible spaces on offer from One Events provide a great option, with varying sizes and interiors that are highly flexible and can be rearranged for modern, traditional and alternative styles. An outside reception can be more suitable for some, especially if a river or boat are involved in any element, though if you live in England you will have to make alternative arrangements for the ceremony, as weddings cannot legally be performed outside.

Dress Code

Depending on your theme, it can be wither easy or much harder to find a wedding dress which fits in with the theme while still obviously being a wedding dress and not fancy dress attire. For this reason, it may be sensible not to choose too extravagant a theme. A themed dress is also likely to cost a bit more than a traditional wedding as, if you can’t find anything suitable off the peg, you’ll need to arrange for the design and manufacture, as well as organising the groom’s outfit along with bridesmaids’ and groomsmen’s attire. Then there’s the issue of getting all your guests to dress appropriately – make sure to put the dress code on the invitations, but don’t be too upset if some guests don’t arrive in character.


From the drinks offered at the bar to the main meal and of course the cake, if you want to really stick with a particular theme a lot of attention needs to be paid to these areas too. Arranging a specialist cake shouldn’t be much more hassle, but the seating, décor and actual menu may present a few problems. Still, like any wedding, as long as everything is planned well in advance and done tastefully there’s no reason a themed wedding won’t be a success.

Tips to Fit into Your Wedding Dress More Perfectly

Every bride wants to look her best on her wedding day. Many will diet like crazy before the wedding to fit into their wedding gown and then feel weak and uncomfortable on the big day. Don’t be one of them!! An easier and healthier way to be sure you fit into your gorgeous wedding dress more perfectly is to use an ItWorks! Skinny Wrap.


The Skinny Wrap is the innovative contouring wrap that literally shrinks flab and fat anywhere on your body from your neck down. The It Works Skinny Wrap firms, tightens and tones by applying a botanical cream that includes natural ingredients such as rosemary, eucalyptus, and magnesium to the areas you want to shrink. You simply wear the wrap for 45 minutes and BOOM, you see results!



One box of Wraps contains four wraps, which can be used every three days (72 hours)! You will lose extra pounds; tighten loose skin and firm flab without starving yourself. The wraps are easy to move in and are comfortable, allowing you to do all of the last minute things before your wedding, like packing for your honeymoon! Your body will look even better 72 hours later, and the wraps results are as permanent as you make them! Give yourself—and your groom—your best body with a safe, natural product that:


  • Tightens, tones & firms flab and skin
  • Minimizes cellulite appearance
  • Improves skin texture & tightness
  • Made with all natural ingredients
  • Can be used on any area of the body
  • Helps reduce stretch marks


ItWorks! Skinny Wraps do not leave a mess and are this easy to use:

  1. Open one pouch per person and unfold
  2. Apply the skinny wrap to the area you want to reduce with the botanically-based lotion touching the skin
  3. Smooth out the Skinny Wrap to ensure good contact and penetration
  4. Secure the Skinny Wrap in place with plastic wrap, elastic bandages, or Fab Wrap
  5. Wear for a minimum of 45 minutes and up to 5 hours
  6. Drink 2-3 bottles of water
  7. Remove the Skinny Wrap and discard (wraps are only to be used once)
  8. Rub any remaining lotion into skin
  9. Do not rinse, shower or work out immediately after wrapping. Allowing the cream to penetrate the skin delivers optimal results, which will continue to work for 72 hours after the wrap is removed.
  10. Drink at least half of your body weight in ounces each day


Every bride wants to look even thinner and more toned on one of the most special day of a girl’s life. With the Skinny Wrap, you will walk down the aisle with a tighter tummy, more toned thighs, a minimized midriff, and banished bat wings and back fat! Wherever you have loose skin or extra flab hanging about, our Wrap will minimize it! You’ve thought of every detail; now make sure your trousseau includes Skinny Wraps!


And, don’t worry if the wraps aren’t what you’re looking for! We have way more than just Wraps! If you are worried about the length, thickness and health of your hair for your BIG day… don’t be. Our Hair Skin Nails supplement has you covered!


The fear of getting a blemish, having dull looking skin, and noticeable fine lines and wrinkles is definitely natural, but with our amazing skin care line including our Exfoliating Peel, Facial wrap, cleanser, toner and day and night creams, your skin will do nothing but glow!


Are you concerned about your cellulite, spider or varicose veins, or dry skin? Our Defining Gel minimizes the appearance of those tough problems as well as softens, hydrates and tightens your skin.


If you are looking to lose weight for the wedding, get help from our Thermofit (metabolism booster) or Fat Fighters (carb and fat blocker) and what better way to get healthier from the inside out and aid in weight loss than our Greens! Try our Greens to detoxify and alkaline your body with 8+ servings of fruits and vegetables, 38 super-foods and free radical-fighting antioxidants in 2 tiny scoops a day.
