2021 – THE YEAR OF LITTLE BIG WEDDINGS

By | Beauty, Bridal, Fashion, Food for thought, Party | No Comments

With a large numbers of couples postponing their weddings last year, this wedding season is expected to be the biggest we’ve even seen. Even though the COVID-19 regulations are still quite strict, there are some celebrations waiting to be held since last year and we cannot wait any longer. So what is 2021 going to bring us? Fully booked outdoor locations? Guests not coming because of the restrictions? New delays and expectations?

Planning any kind of event now is a real headache! But look at the bright side, now you have a legit excuse to not invite some people you would have “had to”. This year is the perfect opportunity for a small but elegant wedding. Our motto for 2021 is “Less is More“!

Because some couples have been planning to throw a big party for more than a year it might be hard to find a venue for your little celebration, but there are always alternatives. Especially so if you are only allowed to invite up to 15 people.

Our recipe for the perfect wedding is renting a small house somewhere next to a lake and enjoying this moment with your closest friends.

Here’s a list of things you should be looking for to throw the perfect party:

  1. Search for the place with a big enough garden
  2. Make sure the neighbors in that location know what you are planning and will not call the police (this can really happen in Switzerland!)
  3. Do not forget the makeup and hair! Even if it is a small celebration you would still want to look flawless in your wedding pictures.
  4. Order some flowers to decorate as well as your bouquet
  5. Stock up on Champagne and delicious food

We hope this list inspires you to not delay your special day any longer and get down to planning. If you need any help with the third step Glow Concierge is always there to help! For weddings and special occasions our providers can often drive beyond their regions of availability that you can see on the website. So if you are not sure what you need or how to plan it, write us an email and we will organise everything for you! You can also schedule a trial appointment to see which sort of style you want without stressing about it on your big day.

IS IT TIME FOR THE ROARING 20s 2.0

By | Beauty, Fashion, Food for thought, Party | No Comments

There’s a lot of speculation in the media about this magical “post pandemic” world that everybody has been looking forward to so much. The question is: what will it look like? Will we stay forever cautious of close contact and social situations? Or will global society come back to “normal”? Some experts are even convinced that our world is about to enter a completely new unpredictable stage…

Social distancing, mask wearing, continuous disinfection of every surface – all these things have become a part of our everyday routine and are very likely to stay there. It is said that the world will never be as free as it was – individuals will take caution in talking with strangers, reconsider their lifestyles and be less likely to engage in “one-night-stands”.

However, there is also the completely opposite scenario in the media. In this case the Covid-19 pandemic is often compared to the Spanish Flu. After the world recovered from one of the deadliest pandemics, closing following on the shirt tails of one of the world’s deadliest conflicts,  a decade of consumerism, new music, fashion, freedom, glittering excesses and self gratification set in. The dawn of the Jazz Age. F. Scott Fitzgerald called it ‘the most expensive orgy in history’.

The roaring 20s, or an era of champagne, as it is sometimes called, was not only the time of crazy parties that we’ve read about in The Beautiful & the Damned and The Great Gatsby but also of a new and constantly changing fashion.

What trends can we expect to see in 2021? The annus horribles that was 2020 is over. We need to embrace colour, glitter and all that is gold! Expect to see colour blocking, bold lips and dramatic eyes.

In times of hardship, sales of beauty products traditionally soar. This is particularly true for lipstick. A bold, bright lip can transform you! Channel your inner goddess with classic red, be it matte, glossy or glitter!

With masks and facial coverings being the norm these days, it’s only your eyes that can express you in public. Shimmery green, bold orange and hot pink are all set to be trends for 2021, just look at what the models at Tom Ford and Burberry were wearing!

Even though the pandemic is still not over, we can already see the longing of individuals for social events and new activities. A good example is the Chinese Spring Festival, which is held every year and is famous as a time for major movie premiers and shopping. Even though the places in the theaters were limited to 50% capacity all the tickets for this week were sold out! The supermarkets have experienced a flow of great number of customers despite the suggestion of the government to “stay home”. The ski resorts are full and people are desperate to get back to some form of normality.

As people return to the work place, so will they return to after work drinks and dinners and dancing.

We at Glow Concierge are hoping that the prediction of a roaring 20s part 2 will come true and very soon all of us will be able to have the time of our lives. Until then, we would recommend you to enjoy this time at home: take a bath, order a massage, read a book, have a fitness session in your garden. Our providers are always here to pamper you whenever you feel the urge for some self care.

HALLOWEEN

By | Beauty, Fashion, Home, Party | No Comments

The spookiest occasion of the year is just around the corner so, let’s talk Halloween. Have you got your costume ready, have you thought about your make up yet? How are you going to style your hair?

Did you know, this year Halloween is on a Saturday, it’s going to be a super rare Full Blue Moon AND it’s daylight saving so that means an extra hour of partying! The trifecta of Halloween awesomeness!

It’s never too soon to start planning! Here’s some inspiration for you!

The Day of the Dead is always a Winner!

Put those “Poor Unfortunate Souls” to shame by channeling your inner sea witch.

Who better to dress as than Wednesday Addams herself!

Maybe you know exactly what you’ll be wearing and how you want your hair and makeup or perhaps you need some help. We are always available to help you decide on the perfect look for you. Send us an email at info@glowconcierge.ch to discuss your Halloween needs.

JUNGGESELLINNENABSCHIEDE UND BRAUTPARTIES

By | Bridal, Party | No Comments

Sowohl der Junggesellinnenabschied als auch die Brautparty können dafür sorgen, dass die Zeit bis zur Hochzeit noch um ein Highlight erweitert wird. Beide Feiern scheinen auf den ersten Blick das Gleiche zu sein, aber es gibt doch kleine aber feine Unterschiede.

Der Junggesellinnenabschied

Klassische Junggesellinnenabschiede sind dafür bekannt (oder berüchtigt), ein bisschen wild zu sein. Viel Alkohol und hier und da mal über die Stränge zu schlagen, gehören da einfach dazu. Brautparties laufen da eher etwas gemässigter ab, sind oftmals generationenübergreifend und gediegener. Beide Parties könnten also unterschiedlicher nicht sein und doch haben sie am Ende des Tages genau das gleiche Ziel: Die zukünftige Braut zu feiern.

Viele Bräute stellen sich nun die Frage, ob sie beide Parties durchführen sollten bzw. welche der Parties zu ihr passt. Hier ist eine kleine Gegenüberstellung: 

Der traditionelle Junggesellinnenabschied ist definitiv Geschmackssache und nicht jedermanns Sache. Die Braut lädt normalerweise ihre engsten Freundinnen zu einem gemeinsamen Party-Abend ein, der voll von exzessivem Trinken, Tanzen und bunten Schärpen ist, auf denen steht, ob man die “zukünftige Braut”, “Brautjungfer” oder “Trauzeugin” ist.

Für diese Art von Junggesellinnenabschieden haben wir das richtige Package für euch: Wir sorgen für euer perfektes Hair & Make-up, bevor ihr durch die Clubs zieht und geben euch sogar noch eine Flasche Champagner obendrauf, damit ihr den Abend richtig starten könnt.

Die Brautparty

Die Brautparty ist perfekt für alle angehenden Bräute, die nicht unbedingt eine wilde Partynacht wollen, sondern einfach einen schönen Nachmittag mit ihren Liebsten verbringen möchten. 

Typische Aktivitäten sind der sog. “High Tea” oder Spa-Behandlungen mit viel gutem Essen, Wein und guter Unterhaltung. Bei einer Brautparty ist alles möglich, solange die Braut sich gut amüsiert und wohlfühlt. 

Wie wäre es also mit passenden Maniküren für alle Gäste? Oder vielleicht soll einfach die Braut für ein paar Stunden verwöhnt werden?

Welche Party passt also besser zu dir?

Viele Bräute finden sowohl Junggesellinnenabschiede als auch Brautparties super. Zu einigen passt jedoch vielleicht nur einer der beiden Anlässe. Wir finden, dass man nie genug Party machen kann. Wenn dir also beide Anlässe zusagen, wieso nicht beide durchführen oder vielleicht sogar kombinieren? Also erst mit einem Verwöhnnachmittag mit anschliessendem Abendessen starten und dann mit einer ausgelassenen Party die Nacht zum Tag machen. 

Unsere Packages können individuell auf dich und deine Gäste zugeschnitten werden. Du kannst mit einem unserer Berater*innen sprechen und wir werden dir das Angebot zusammenstellen, das am besten zu deinen Bedürfnissen passt. Schreibe uns einfach eine E-Mail an info@glowconcierge.ch und wir setzen uns gerne mit dir in Verbindung.
