The ultimate guide to perfect wedding nails

Eeeek you're engaged - massive congratulations! Nails by Laura D Lee offers a huge range of wedding manicures (and pedicures) which can be customised to suit your needs, without the additional 'wedding price tag' that is found on so many other services - luckily for you, I just don't believe in charging extra for a treatment simply because you are getting married.

I know that a lot of time, thought and energy goes into planning your wedding, and I will ensure that the same care and attention is afforded to your wedding nails.  If you'd like to book your bridal party in for co-ordinating* nails, simply pop me a message and let the wedding fun begin.

* Of course, mismatched nails are also available if that's more your thing!

“Laura did mine & my bridesmaids nails for my wedding and all 5 sets could not have been more perfect.”

As one half of the happy couple, your wedding typically means that people are focussing on your hands more than they would normally.  When you exchange your rings; when you toast during the speeches; and of course anytime you hold the hand of your spouse, your hand and therefore your nails are on display.  These are all focal moments and they're also shots that your photographer is likely to want to capture, so it makes sense to want your hands and nails to look attractive. This is where I come in.

Booking in a bridal party often includes the bridesmaids, mothers of the bride and groom, and the bride herself of course, but make sure you don’t overlook the groom. The NbLDL 'Hand & Nail Care' treatment option ensures that your hands and nails are looking their best, without looking overtly obvious that you've 'had your nails done', so it's the perfect choice for grooms who may otherwise be reluctant to book in.  What's more, there's no need to attend a busy salon - instead my at-home beauty room in Stevenage, Herts offers a private setting for your one-on-one appointment, so you can relax and enjoy your treatment in complete privacy.

So if your fiancé is looking for a simple pre-wedding spruce up, book him in for the NbLDL Hand & Nail Care Mani and relax in the knowledge that he’ll look like his best self in all your wedding pics.

When it comes to your own wedding nails, don’t worry if you’re not sure what kind of design or style you’d like - a bit like wedding dress shopping, part of the fun is trying out all your options first! If you have no specific design in mind for your bridal nails, I will work closely with you to narrow down your choices, and I’ll happily create mock-ups of each suggestion so that you can visualise the options available, until we arrive at the perfect set. And if you’re in need of some bridal nail art inspo in the meantime, keep an eye out for the next NbLDL blog post, coming soon.

Nothing is too much trouble - at my wedding nail trial, I had no idea what I wanted, so she painstakingly created 10 different nails for me!”

Sometimes you may only have a vague notion of what you'd like on your nails, other times it's a completely fixed vision.  Even if you think you're 100% certain of the design and/or colours you'd like, I would always recommend having a pre-wedding trial for your nails, for exactly the same reasons you would have a hair and/or make-up trial ~ we want to make sure the colours suit and that the design looks as you imagined, so it's not advisable to leave it to the last minute in case amendments are needed.

You may also find that you would benefit from regular appointments in the lead-up to the wedding to ensure that your nails are kept in their best condition and at their optimum length.  If you are someone who struggles with thin or weak nails; nails which peel, break or split; or who has difficulty in growing their nails, then pre-wedding maintenance appointments, coupled with personalized at-home aftercare recommendations, are an absolute must.

“The care & knowledge from Laura in the lead up to my wedding was amazing & led to tons of growth in a matter of weeks. I had 2 lots of IBX treatment over a 5 week period as my nails were super sad, damaged and flimsy from previous acrylic and home gel applications. The difference to the strength & length of my nails in this time felt nothing short of miraculous. I really didn’t think I’d have long nails in time for my wedding, as they kept splitting before my treatments, but I did!”

Finally, don't forget about your feet!  If your toes are going to be on show, we can match colour and/or design with your nails, or co-ordinate with another element of your bridal outfit.  Even if your toes aren't visible in your wedding shoes, a Nails by Laura D Lee pedicure is a wonderful way to relax ahead of the big day, whilst also ensuring you look fab for your honeymoon.

So whether you want help growing your natural nails before the big day, you'd love to enjoy a relaxing pampering session with your whole bridal party, or you're looking to create a bespoke set of nails to complete your bridal look, book a FREE wedding consultation with me today and cross another item off your wedmin list.

“I would recommend Laura a thousand times over. Her wealth of knowledge along with her care & dedication will make your nails feel the most loved they have ever been.”
