It’s the day that every woman dreams of her entire life — her wedding day. And on your wedding day, you deserve to feel like a princess. In the days leading up to the big one, every detail matters. Here are a few things to focus on.
Our skin is the most noticeable thing about us. In the time leading up to your wedding, you should create a daily skincare routine if you don’t already have one. Cleansing, toning, and moisturizing can have an almost instant glowing effect on your skin that you’ll be dying to show off.
2. Face and Hair Masks
The health of your skin and hair directly control how beautiful they appear. Before your wedding, give yourself a full spa day at home with one of the many nurturing and moisturizing face and hair masks available. They can even be made from things right in your kitchen.
3. Hand and Foot Care
Nobody wants to walk down the aisle with callouses or rough, dry skin. You can keep your hands and feet soft and visibly smooth with daily exfoliation and moisturizing.
Lots of products are available and will do an awesome job granting you crazy soft skin.
Our hair, skin, nails, and metabolism all depend on how hydrated we keep our bodies. To make sure that you’re supplying your body with enough hydration in the days leading up to your wedding, you should aim to drink eight to ten glasses of water a day.
The days leading up to your wedding day can be nerve-wracking, to say the least. But one of the best things that you can do for your sanity and your body is to get enough sleep. Setting up a strict schedule and keeping yourself organized helps with catching shut-eye and will keep your days organized and stress-free.
When you’re getting enough sleep, it’s a given that you feel more energized and ready to face the day. But your skin and body will also thank you for turning out the light and getting the sleep that you need and deserve.
6. Your Smile
Naturally, you have a beautiful smile. But one of the best things to add to your pre-wedding beauty madness is a gentle teeth whitening. Keeping your smile beautiful and white will absolutely alleviate a good amount of stress when it comes down to your wedding day.
Nobody wants to get into your dress and see the contrast between its radiant white and a slightly neglected smile. You’ll thank yourself later when you make sure to give yourself a quick whitening before the big event.
7. Nail Care
Just as you wouldn’t want dull skin on your wedding day, you wouldn’t want unkempt nails. It’s a good idea to keep a quality cuticle remover on hand, and even go for a manicure and pedicure before the big day.
Your wedding nails could even be done at home if you preferred, but it’s smart to stick with a solid color or style that isn’t too busy.
8. Makeup Test
If you’re doing your own makeup for the wedding, it’s smart to do a “makeup test run” once or twice in the days leading up to the wedding itself. This ensures that you’ll know exactly what you’re doing and what the game plan is.
This also allows you to play around with different styles and looks to choose your favorite one.
You would be surprised by the amount of latent stress that a simple massage can detox from the body. Stress is also the culprit responsible for lots of things like breakouts, larger pores, less sleep, or even bloating.
If you make sure to go for a nice massage the week before your big day, your body will thank you by glowing.
10. Brow Care
Eyebrows are the most important factor in framing your face. Some people make sure to get their eyebrows cleaned up before their wedding either by going for a wax or threading or doing them at home by themselves.
However, it is hugely important to make sure never to overpluck your brows, leaving them too thin. Let them do their framing thing!
11. Eat Clean
While you should never make a habit of basically starving before a big event, you can always make sure to eat clean in the process of preparing. Working lots of produce and less dairy into your diet will do wonders.
These are some chaotic times, but they lead up to such a good thing! Meditation or mindful breathing are wonderful resources to utilize in stressful times. By keeping scheduled quiet time every day, you can quiet your mind to better focus on the situation at hand.
13. Work Out
While you shouldn’t work yourself to death before your wedding, it’s never a bad idea to add a little cardio. Boost your mood and keep yourself fit as your special day nears.
14. Lip Care
Who doesn’t want soft, supple, and visibly kissable lips? What more important day than your wedding to start?
Try a gentle sugar scrub on your lips one time, and you’ll be hooked on the look.
15. Hair Plan
Whether you’re going to put your hair up or down, you should have your plan down to a science when the big day rolls around. Try practicing in the few days beforehand.
16. Pack a Bag
Odds are that you’ll have a laundry list of things that will need to be by your side on the wedding day. It’s a great plan to get the bag of necessities together before the last minute. The breath of fresh air when you need it, later on, will make it worth the effort.
17. Try Lashes
These adhesive enhancements can seem intimidating to many. But taking a few minutes a day to practice with them will surely add something beautiful to your finished wedding day look. Youtube tutorials are insanely helpful for this.
18. Get Glowy
Whether you prefer real sunshine or a spray tan, getting a sunkissed glow before the wedding will surely enhance your look by a mile. The process doesn’t have to be stressful or grueling if you go with the type of tan you’re comfortable with.
19. Don’t Go Overboard
The days and weeks leading up to your wedding can be more nerve-wracking than you’d expect, and everyone wants to make sure that they work to look like a princess when the day comes. But it’s essential to keep your health in mind as well. Try never to:
- Skip meals or eat too little.
- Over exfoliate.
- Make yourself too anxious!
It goes without saying that weddings and the preparation involved take a lot of work! Whatever details are causing you stress before your wedding, get a head start, and thank yourself later.
