Every bride wants to look like a queen on her wedding day; unfortunately, unlike a queen, she doesn’t have a squad of ladies-in-waiting to arrange everything in her place according to her wishes. Exhaustion inevitably builds up, and that’s why looking your best becomes hard even for those who, as a rule, have no trouble with it. Fortunately, there are tips and tricks that may help you out on your big day.
1. Get Your Skin Glowing
There are things every woman learns to do in order to keep her skin in top shape: washing make-up off before going to sleep, using various facial masks and face creams, and so on. However, when it comes to a wedding, the bride is likely to want something special, and the usual drill is no longer enough. In order to really get your skin glowing, you have to use a combination of chemical peels, deep pore cleansing, and suchlike – and it is better to consult a specialist before attempting anything on your own.
2. Work on Your Smile
And we don’t just mean practicing it. If you are not blessed with snow-white teeth but want to look perfect in your wedding photos, there are ways to remedy this, including a number of procedures aimed at whitening teeth, either short-term or for a prolonged period of time.
3. Choose Your Dress in Advance
A wedding dress is the centerpiece of the entire ceremony, and it is one thing that absolutely has to look perfect. That’s why it pays to choose it long in advance, without leaving anything to chance, and prepare the dress for the wedding and yourself for the dress – that is, making sure it fits you perfectly and that it corresponds to the general style of the ceremony.
4. Choose a Fitting Hairstyle
The same goes for hairstyle – you should realistically take into account the possibilities of your hair, when making sure the style you choose fits your dress and the decoration of the ceremony. Choose and purchase the headpiece (if you are going to have one) in advance. Again, prepare everything beforehand.
5. Have Your Nails Professionally Manicured
This should be done neither too much in advance nor too late. If you do it too early there is always a risk to break a nail or chip the polish, so you shouldn’t simply leave time for it to get damaged. If you don’t like overly long nails, simply make sure they look nicely trimmed and polished – remember, your fingers are going to be in the foreground of attention this day!
6. Have a Test Drive of Your Make-Up
The results of using your chosen make-up shouldn’t come as a surprise – have a careful look at how everything looks together before the wedding day, even if you really like the combination.
7. Have a Good Night’s Sleep
A hen party may be a tempting prospect, but it is really better to either avoid having it at all or end it early. No matter how much you may want to celebrate, the night before the wedding isn’t a very good time for partying – and, especially, drinking. You don’t want to remember being or be remembered as hungover, exhausted, or in a horrible mood on your wedding day.
8. A Light Meal the Day Before
An extra chop eaten the evening before the wedding can make it really hard to get into that dress in the morning. So, if you want to avoid frustration of this kind, don’t overeat – it is really not such a big price to pay for looking perfect.
The wedding is supposed to be the happiest day of your life; but it won’t just happen all by itself. To look and feel your best, make sure to plan the important things in advance not to be stressed later, and take care of yourself – we hope these tips will help you out!
