The holiday season is upon us, and you know what that means? It's engagement season, too! Did you know that a large percentage of proposals happen between Thanksgiving and New Year's? It's raining bling!
Being engaged is such a wonderful time, I hope you take your time to enjoy it. If your sweetie just popped the question, make sure to take some time for yourselves. Bask in that newly-engaged status, make out A LOT, and spend tons of time staring at your left ring finger. (Trust me, we all do it!)
But once you've spent your time in lovey-dovey bliss, you'll want to get down to business. (That's why we're here — we have lots of resources to help you!) One of the most fun parts of planning your wedding is finding the traditions and trends that are meaningful to you, and incorporating them into your big day! So… what are the biggest trends and most trusted traditions, you ask? Allow me to share this infographic created from a survey of recent brides from Philips Zoom!
The most interesting facts from this survey? Half of the brides say that “staying within budget is by far the most stressful element when planning a wedding.” Excuse this shameless plug:
HEYYYYY BRIDES! I'm right here and happy to help you with all my best advice and wisdom for sticking to your wedding budget!!
The next most interesting fact is that 35% of brides plan to have their teeth whitened professionally before the big day. I'd venture to say that this percentage is on the low side due to the expensive nature of in-office whitening treatments performed by many dentists. Good thing there are such great options for getting those same professional results at home, such as the Take Home Whitening Kits from Philips Zoom!
Throughout the entire engagement period all the way through the wedding day, you'll likely be doing lots of celebrating! From your engagement party, bridal shower, bachelorette party and more — you'll probably be posing for more than your fair share of photos. And, of course, you're going to be grinning from ear-to-ear because you are getting ready to marry the love of your life! You'll have so many happy moments like this:
Because your smile is sure to be on full display in many selfies, Facebook posts and Instagrams, as well as your professional engagement and wedding photos… don't you want it to be as radiant as possible? The key to a dazzling smile in photos is making sure your pearly whites are, well… WHITE!
The survey also found that 70% of brides are dissatisfied with their wedding pictures. Whether they are self-conscious or just their own harshest critic (aren't we all?) there are simple and affordable things you can do to enhance your natural beauty. With the help of Philips Zoom, every bride can feel more confident on her big day, making her smile bright on her big day and in pictures that capture every memory she made that day.
Philips Zoom knows that brides should feel beautiful and confident on their wedding day, so they offer a wide variety of teeth whitening treatments, all customizable to the brides’ dental sensitivities, smile needs, and budget! Here are a few of their most popular options:
- Philips Zoom Take Home Kits: When it comes to whitening there is no “one size fits all,” and now it's easier than ever to find the perfect fit for every patient. The kits come in a variety of options, ranging from Philips Zoom Take Home NiteWhite, which you wear while you sleep, to Philips Zoom DayWhite, which only takes 30 minutes, twice a day to get optimum results in just two weeks.
- Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed: Clinically proven to whiten teeth up to eight shades in 45 minutes, Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed has superior results and efficacy than other professional whitening alternatives.
- Philips Zoom QuickPro: Philips Zoom QuickPro uses a breakthrough two-layer technology to noticeably whiten teeth in just 10 minutes. All the patient has to do is brush or wipe off the whitening varnish after 30 minutes to see results.
