Rachel's Top Tips!
Pick Your Outfit Carefully
Choose something flattering, that you feel comfortable in and that compliments your colouring, style and figure
Ensure you look polished with matching or contrasting shoes, petticoat (if your dress suits one), hair flower, make up etc. Check your nails, are your shoes clean? Dress Ironed? It's the little things that count!
Hair & Make Up
If you are trying something new then practice in advance! If you are booking in to get your hair and make up done then make sure you allow enough time!
Nothing suits you better than a smile! Try to relax and have fun!
