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.
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.
Avoid drastic changes:
A drastic makeover just before the wedding can actually spoil your mood if it does not get executed properly. Be it changing your hair color, going for skin treatment, or trying a new hairstyle, if the end result does not make you happy, it will surely leave you upset. So, avoid doing anything drastic before your wedding, if you do not want to regret your decision later on.
Avoid taking stress over petty issues:
There might be several things going in your mind on your wedding day, but it is better to avoid taking unnecessary stress on petty issues and relax. It is not your fault if the florist could not arrange the flowers of your choice for the venue decoration. It will anyhow not stop the guests from attending and enjoying your wedding.
So, instead of taking stress over such petty issues, pay attention to other important things, like performing the rituals properly, ensuring all your bags are packed, rechecking your appointment with your parlor. This way you can divert your mind towards other important things and not bother about unnecessary issues.
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.
Choose a Fitting Hairstyle:
The same goes for hairstyle – you should really 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.
Pay attention to makeup:
Makeup can either make or break your look on the wedding day. So, to avoid a catastrophe, make a note of all the good makeup artists in the city. Consult your friends, research a bit, and choose the one that best suits your requirements. Book a prior appointment and if possible, take a trial makeup session as well. This will help you to avoid the situation of you freaking out on your wedding day, as bad makeup can make you look like a different person altogether.
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 parties – 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.
