New Kid On The Wedding Block is back – outrageous absence I know.  Bijou readers if you think I’ve dropped the ball and missed something fabulous just drop me a line.  So onto today’s Wedding wonder… Vanity Van.

The brainchild of Alix Soame after too many festival hair and beauty fails, Alix created her mobile beauty salon the Vanity Van and started taking it along to all the biggest summer festivals.  Unsurprisingly it was a massive hit with festival goers including celebrities such as Fearne Cotton, Flo Rida and Adele.

Now the Vanity Van is taking on Wedding land with its team of beauticians, hair stylists and holistic therapists.  You can book the team to come and pitch up where you are staying to primp and preen your bridesmaids, family and even flower girls.  If you are getting married at your family home, in a field or at a hotel this is such a great idea that will allow all of you to be together in one space.  Offering the full range of Beauty salon services means they can deal with any last-minute eyebrow waxes, hair cuts or spray tans without anyone having to leave the comfort of their dressing gown.

And if you’re feeling generous you could spoil your Wedding guests with relaxing massages at the reception.  And for a real festival theme the team can paint your Wedding guests with creative face and body art or set up a chill-out area with Fatboy bean bags and comfy furniture to relax on, games to play and Haribo sweets to eat.  Best Wedding ever!
