How To Look And Feel Your Best On Your Wedding Day

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!

                  10 Cheap And Amazing Honeymoon Ideas

                  A honeymoon is important.  The wedding is over.  The months, or even years, of stress and planning are finally over.  It’s time for the two of you to relax, settle in, and start enjoying your time together as you embark on your first journey as a family.

                  To make the most of this time for the least amount of money, it’s important to focus on what you want out of a honeymoon.  This isn’t your typical list of touristy honeymoon locations everyone goes to.  Rather, it’s a list of cheap honeymoon experiences a couple can enjoy together, regardless of where it’s at.

                  1. Camping

                  A week long camping trip is a fantastic way to see how you mesh together as a couple.  You’re put in a low impact “survival” situation where it’s just the 2 of you and nature.  You have a chance to see how your new spouse handles themselves when left with the basics of life.  There are amazing national parks all over the United States where you can camp for a week for $20-30, disconnect from technology, and enjoy some of the natural wonders our nation has to offer.

                  2. Staycation

                  You don’t have to go anywhere for a honeymoon.  In fact, the tradition of taking a honeymoon vacation is a relatively new one.  Prior to the 19th century, a honeymoon involved staying home together for a month to get to know each other physically.  Think of how blissful it could be to take a full month off work, disconnect from the outside world, and focus entirely on projects together.  You may not be wowing your friends and family with pictures of some exotic location, but they’ll be envious of your escape from the rat race nonetheless.

                  3. Island Getaway

                  People tend to overspend on their honeymoon vacations to Hawaii, Tahiti, etc.  Going to these places doesn’t have to be expensive.  You don’t need to stay in a 5 star resort when you’re on a Best Western budget.  You’re there to be in the atmosphere of the island, not a hotel room. Book a cheap flight and sleep in a hotel alternative, on the beach or in your car.  It’s the view in paradise that really matters.

                  4. Fancy Resort

                  Book an expensive resort, spa, or retreat in the city you live in.  While this may seem counterintuitive as a cheap destination, when you consider your savings on airfare and other travel costs, you can afford to be treated like royalty within your own city limits.  If you book a honeymoon package, you’ll end up with a lot of free amenities and extra attention.  There’s no need to fly halfway across the world to live the good life.

                  5. Road Trip

                  The journey is often more fulfilling than the actual destination.  If you fly out to some exotic locale, you’ll be stuck on a plane for 8-30 hours.  Rent a luxury car, pick a handful of places you each have always wanted to visit, and go on an adventure.  You can keep food costs down by packing your own snacks, but it’s always a good idea to sample the local delicacies wherever you go, even if it’s only a few states over.

                  6. Charter a Boat

                  If the ocean is your thing, a week-long cruise can cost you $1500-$3000 per person, depending on the destination.  You also have to factor in travel costs to and from the cruise, alcohol, souvenirs, and on-shore excursions.  You’ll also be surrounded by people.  For the same price (and often much cheaper), you can charter your own boat and enjoy the experience in private.

                  7. Las Vegas/Atlantic City

                  If gambling is your thing, these are the places to do it.  Which one you choose depends on your preference, budget, and proximity.  The way to make this vacation cheaper is to gamble smart.  Stay away from low odd tables (i.e craps, roulette) and read up on the MIT blackjack strategies to beat the house.  If you do it right, you can win enough for a free trip (and gain a valuable team skill in the process).

                  Advertising

                  8. Themed Retreats

                  There are weeklong retreats all over the world where you can fully immerse yourselves as a couple into a hobby you’re both passionate about.  Go on a yoga/meditation retreat, a ranch, a vineyard/farm, a backpacking adventure, treasure hunt, or whatever you’re into.

                  9. Working Honeymoon

                  Your honeymoon doesn’t have to be a vacation.  For a truly memorable experience, dedicate a week to a charity or volunteer organization.  You can drive out to a campground to help restore it in the offseason.  Maybe you’ve always wanted to volunteer to help out your local animal shelter, plant trees, help the homeless, etc.  Use the time to do something together as a couple that will fulfill you spiritually while contributing to the community.  Just because you’re on a honeymoon doesn’t mean you can’t be productive.

                  10. Festivals, Fairs & Special Events

                  Every city, state, and country has festivals, fairs, and special events.  Find one you’re interested in.  If you time your wedding right, your honeymoon can be a trip to one of these festivals.  Burning Man, SXSW, Bonnaroo, the Renaissance Fair, regional harvest festivals, Mardi Gras, New Years Eve in Times Square, a movie premiere, or whatever you’re into.  If you plan your honeymoon at the right time in the right place, the possibilities are endless.
