- 5. Mary Kay
You know the look we love at Zankyou – natural make-up that shows off your natural beauty without changing your face beyond (your partner’s) recognition. However, we think experimenting with colour and make-up or hair trends is a great way to find just the right look for you. So before you buy, why not try the free Mary Kay app, which lets you combine hair and make-up without having to even get dressed and leave the house!
- 6. My Wedding Music

And as the music is down to you and your choice, why not use the useful My Wedding Music app to make a playlist for your wedding day. Very useful, it lets you create the soundtrack to your day straight on your smartphone!
