Crystal Schwanke

Crystal Schwanke has over a decade of experience in beauty and fashion. Why are you giving advice on Love You Tomorrow? I was the LovetoKnow beauty and fashion editor and writer for their makeup, hair, jewelry, and wedding channels. I also had a beauty column in Fayette Woman Magazine for around six years—this included covering bridal makeup. I also have experience from my own wedding as well as helping with bridesmaid's hair and makeup for friends' weddings. I've been interested in jewelry and what different stones represent since childhood when I started collecting beaded bracelets and received a turquoise and sterling silver ring from my grandmother's collection around age 11. I love seeing the non-traditional bridal jewelry and dresses that are out there now. Who is your favorite wedding dress designer? Maggie Sottero (I'm obsessed with the Sottero and Midgley line). What's your favorite diamond jeweler? James Allen If you could give someone planning their wedding advice, what would it be? Instead of striving to ensure that everything is 100% perfect, remember that as long as you're married to the love of your life at the end, that's all that matters. Your wedding day goes by in such a blur as it is, so don't let stress over managing the little details keep you from being truly present for the whole experience. Take deep breaths. Pause to take mental snapshots and soak up some special moments during the planning process and the wedding day. Sometimes, things will go wrong. It will all be okay in the end. You're making memories and building a happily ever after.
