Well, this gives a whole new meaning to the term "ice queen." Models at the Douglas Hannant Fall 2011 bridal show looked like they'd been kissing Jack Frost, with "snow" in their hair and rime-y 3D iridescent glitter on their faces. I love the wintry concept for this look—after all, who hasn't wanted to be Queen Frostine from Candyland?—but do you think think the real world result was as cool as the idea behind it?
Traditional pink lipstick is for the conventional bride. These famous faces aren't known for making classical run-of-the-mill beauty choices. Take Christina Aguilera, for example. She didn't actually wear this to her wedding (it was for a costume party), but she did have a distinguishable beauty look on her walk down the aisle. Can you guess what it was? To answer the question and a whole lot more, take my quiz about unorthodox bridal beauty.

Since we kicked off wedding season on the Sugar Network, I've been bringing you a multi-part guide guide to Getting Beautiful for the Big Day. Since this is Wedding Weekend week, I'll be offering advice on the last-minute details and finishing touches you should worry about right before the wedding. Now, for the final part of my series: one day to go! Good luck.
- Get a manicure and pedicure.
- Remember to drink lots of water so your skin is hydrated, and be sure to get get a good night's sleep.
- If you are going for a tanned look, make a spa appointment for a total body exfoliation and a self tanner application. Please pay to have this done professionally; now is not the time to risk streaking or splotching.
- Do something that makes you feel good. Either schedule a massage, go for a brisk walk, or take a relaxing yoga class.

There's just one catch. Since the company is called "Your Name" (because they sell goods to small companies who want to promote their own brands) you have to call them to order - (at least it's TOLL FREE: 1-800-221-3071).
