First things first: congratulations on your engagement! Getting ready for your wedding and the prospect of spending your life with the one you love is an amazing and exciting time in any bride’s life.
We don’t need to tell you that as your wedding approaches you have a lot to think about. There are flowers, menus, place settings, seating charts, centerpieces, hotel accommodations, the list goes on. Almost every single thing needs your attention, and your look is high on the list of priorities.
On your wedding day you want to look as happy as you feel, so take our advice and look over these 4 things to help you make the most of this fun planning stage!
1. Get That Glow
Your wedding will be the happiest day of your life, when you marry the person you love most and start building a life together. You will be glowing with happiness from head to toe as you walk down the aisle. A secret that many use to encourage that glow even through the not-so-blissful moments of wedding planning? Regular facials!
A facial takes care of your skin to deeply exfoliate, moisturize, and replenish. Facials give your skin a glow that lasts while preventing the early signs of aging and mitigating the effects of previous sun exposure and stress. Getting facials regularly during the wedding planning stage will help you look your best from your wedding day and beyond.
2. Relax and Breathe
It’s no secret that planning a wedding can be stressful, with so much to think about to create the wedding you have always dreamed of. It is essential to take some time out to relax and forget about caterers and photographers in order to stay sane during the planning process. Getting a massage every once in a while, allows you to refresh your mind and body. Take an hour, leave the stress of planning behind, and breathe deeply as a massage therapist gets to work on your stress points.
3. Choose Your Stylists
The way you look on your wedding day will be captured in pictures that you will look at for the rest of your life. That’s why finding the right dress, jewelry, veil, hair, and makeup is so important. Once you have chosen the dress and accessories, choosing your hair and makeup looks are the finishing touches that pull the whole look together. That’s why choosing the stylists to make you look and feel gorgeous and glamorous on your wedding day should not be something you do lightly.
When you are choosing a hair stylist or makeup artist, make sure to read reviews and look at a portfolio. If you can, get recommendations from friends, family, and other people whose style opinions you trust. Find stylists who speak to you and who can create the vision you have in mind.
It is not uncommon for brides to “try out” hairstylists or makeup artists to choose between them. When it comes down to it, this is the best way to know if the person you have chosen can bring your vision to life.
4. Practice Your Looks
Once you have chosen the stylists to do your hair and your makeup, make sure to do a practice run of your finished look. These practice runs are incredibly helpful for both bride and stylists; if you see something you don’t like during your practice run, you can say something and the stylist can fix it on the big day. Or if you don’t like the initial style you chose, figuring it out before the big day means that you can find a different look.
