We all desire to look great every day, especially on our wedding day! This is a time which is dedicated to you and your partner, so you want to look your very best as all eyes will be on you. With a few helpful tips and considered preparations, you’ll be gleaming for those wedding photos.
Plan your outfit carefully
Rushing and not thinking through your wedding outfit is a flaw which most brides make and regret. Buying the first dress you see just because the deal was good is not always the way to go. Have a couple of wedding gowns in mind and use the helpful input from your friends and family. When you find the dress which suits you accordingly, store it in a zipped garment bag after purchasing it. If you’re stuck on the what shoes or accessories to get, look at a few bridal magazines, they’re jam packed with loads of ideas and different styles which might interest you!
Stay healthy and fit
Being active and eating better during the months prior to your wedding, is a great way to look amazing on your big day. By finding a workout routine, a fitness-related hobby or a healthier diet which suits you, you’ll not only look fitter, but will feel more confident. You could even get your partner involved on your fitness regime and make them reap the benefits too! You might even enjoy it so much, that you continue doing it after the wedding day and schedule it into everyday life.
Makeup and hair trials are a must
You’ve probably heard the phrase ‘being prepared is half the victory’, well this applies to your special day. If you want a relaxed and successful wedding, it’s essential to have all the preparations in order. This also involves beauty treatments. Get all of your girls together and have a few hair and makeup trials. By doing this, you can avoid some hiccups on the actual wedding day, by checking if a certain makeup product doesn’t look as good on you, a specific hairdo isn’t what you quite fancy and just generally being more prepared.
Look yourself, not someone else
One of the worst things you can do while getting ready for your special day, is making yourself look completely different. Yes you could try makeup you’ve never used before or go for that hairstyle you’ve always wanted, but don’t have any drastic makeovers on your wedding day. Be proud of your original features and let everyone admire your natural beauty.
Get a ‘Wedding Day Survival Kit’
You may or may not know what this is, but it can be a lifesaver on your wedding day. Typically referred to as the ‘just in case’ items, this survival kit comprises of things such as, tweezers, toothpicks, extra undergarments, breath mints and deodorant. During the prep room and dinner/reception, your bridesmaid can keep hold of this little bag of goodies and always be there with supplies which will keep you looking your best.
