Every bride wants to look and feel beautiful on their wedding day! It is the one day that all eyes will be on you and of course you want to look your very best. I have complied a beauty countdown starting from a year before the wedding up until the wedding day to give you advice on how to look and feel your most beautiful!
One year before the wedding:
-Start a regular work out routine.
-If you want to lose weight, consult a nutritionist to evaluate a plan that works best for you to monitor your nutrition
-Get your teeth fixed if you have a tooth that is turned or need straightening.
-Decide on a plan for your hair. Do you want to grow it out or maintain your hair length?
-In you free time begin to set aside time to do non-wedding activities at least once a week!
6 months before W Day:
-Consult Dermatologist: Wedding planning can be an overwhelming process that can sometimes cause a lot of stress. That stress can wreak havoc on your skin. Your dermatologist can develop a skin regimen just for you that may include monthly facial treatments, microdermabrasion and/or peels.
-Find a Hairstylist and work with them to decide on your wedding day hairstyle.
-Find a Makeup Artist and consult with them about how you want to look on your wedding day
1 month before:
-Now is the best time to get your teeth whitened. If you don’t have the money for a professional treatment there are many great alternatives you can get at local drug stores.
-Have your Hairstylist and makeup artist give you a “trial run” so you can make any necessary adjustments.
-Consider getting a spray tan. If this is your first time getting a spray tan make sure to get a trial to test the color and lasting power on you.
2 weeks Before:
-Have hair colored and trimmed. Make sure not to do anything drastic to your hair this close to the wedding.
Week of Wedding:
-Get eyebrows professionally shaped
-Get Spray Tanned mid week to allow for tan to wear off but still give you a healthy, natural looking glow.
-With all the stress right before the wedding you may have a breakout. Don’t worry….just visit your dermatologist and ask them to give you a shot of cortisone to deflate it!
-Treat yourself to a Manicure/pedicure
Day of Wedding:
Relax, enjoy and make sure to take time out to remember that you are marrying the man of your dreams today. I promise when your groom see’s you for the first time he will think you are the most beautiful woman he has ever seen!
