Your wedding day is most likely the most significant event in your personal life. While it is pretty challenging for the groom to get ready for this day, it is a little more difficult for the bride because there are many more variables to look out for. So whether it’s your dress, veil, shoes, the kind of makeup you want to wear, or anything else, the preparations need to start early.
Also, when you are getting ready for your big day, you need to have a broader view of the situation. You need to look at things from a holistic point of view and make sure everything looks good on its own but also looks excellent combined.
Being in the best possible condition on your wedding day requires you to take care of every little detail. It would be pretty helpful to hire a professional for specific things to take the pressure and the edge off yourself. You can learn and do some things yourself, but it’s a lot more convenient to have a professional help you out and take care of them.
Here are some tips to help you minimize stress and ensure you look and feel great on your special day!
Work On Your Skin Now
Every bride wants to look stunning on her big day. Unfortunately, many think they can hire a great make-up artist to take care of this matter, but they can’t change the quality of your skin with just make-up. Also, the quality of your skin will take time to improve. Ideally, you want to start working on your skin health at least six months to a year before you plan the wedding date.
One of the best things you can do is to start investing in frequent facials till the date of the wedding. Facials help improve skin quality by enhancing blood flow to the skin on your face, removing excess liquid, improving the supply of nutrients, and removing harmful surface-level elements that negatively impact the look of the skin. These changes take time and having at least two facials a month for a year before the wedding will completely transform your face and facial skin quality.
It will create the perfect skin conditions for a nice makeover that will look even better. Getting similar treatments for other parts of your body will also help improve those areas.
Get Sufficient Sleep
During all the excitement of the wedding, it can be hard to get enough sleep. Even several months before the wedding, the event can start taking its toll on your health as you try to manage all the arrangements with your professional and personal commitments. The worst impact of all this activity and stress is that you start to lose sleep quality. Even though you might be getting 6-8 hours of sleep per night, the fact that you aren’t getting good quality sleep is the real problem.
The aim is to get at least 6 hours of undisturbed sleep where you can enter the REM or deep sleep phase, where your body starts healing and recovering. Shallow sleep is excellent if you want to have a 20-minute nap, but you need proper deep sleep during the night.
To achieve this, you must keep an eye on your lifestyle and manage your stress levels. If you aren’t getting enough quality sleep, talk to a medical professional, and they can help you with some relaxants and sleeping pills that can help you get adequate sleep every night. Over the course of a year or even half a year, this will have a significant impact on your health.
Besides your face, you also want the rest of your body to look fantastic in your wedding dress. For some people, this could mean gaining weight. For some, it might mean losing weight; for some, it could mean working on specific areas of their body. You can lose or gain weight through exercise but can’t fix particular spots. A more effective approach is to use natural oils to modify areas, such as increasing bust size. Many women don’t want surgery to change their bodies, and natural oils help achieve the same result naturally.
You can use these oils to tighten up the skin, change the shape of the breasts, or enlarge or decrease the size of the breasts. However, this will not be an overnight change. Using this oil regularly for a more extended period of time will give you the best results. For example, starting early with your wedding preparations will provide you with the time you need to achieve the perfect look you’re going for.
Hair is an essential part of your attire on the wedding day. However, even if you choose not to show your hair at the wedding, you still need your hair to look great directly after the event. In this case, the best solution is to start growing your hair out well in advance. This way, when the wedding day is just a week or two away, you have the option to go for any hairstyle that you would want.
Also, having your hair grown out will give you different styling options for colours and textures. If you have shorter hair when the wedding is close, your options will be more limited.
This is also an excellent opportunity to start working on the quality of your hair. If you want to have any hair procedures to improve your scalp and hair, this is the time to do them. Other than surgical changes to your hair, there are several natural solutions to help you improve the quality of your hair. Keep in mind that what you eat will also impact hair quality.
Your diet plays a vital role in not just your hair but in your overall appearance as well. For example, if you want to gain some weight or shed some points so you look better in your dress, your diet will play an important role.
For the best impact, you should talk to a nutritionist about what you should eat to achieve your fitness goals. If you are looking to gain weight, you don’t only want to add more pounds; you want that weight to look good. This means having a good diet and a good workout routine.
Similarly, diet also plays a significant role in how your body performs. Both your body and mind will benefit significantly from a better diet. It would also be a good idea to get some blood work done to find out if there are any deficiencies you need to address. The average person is deficient in at least one or two things like calcium or zinc. Having reports with you will make it much easier for the nutritionist to find specific problems you might be having.
A lot of things about your body can be improved if you stick to a better diet. However, as you wait for the changes to happen to your body, you will also have the time to look into different options and see what works best for your goals and objectives.
Lastly, you need to consider the dress itself. When it comes to dresses for the bride, there are many different options you could choose from. Whether you want something modern or more traditional is entirely up to you. The standard colour for a wedding dress is white, but the style and size can be personalized, and there is no harm in adding a bit more colour to meet your needs. The kinds of shoes, hair, jewelry, makeup, and all other things you choose should be in line with the dress.
Broadly, you have the option of either getting a custom-made dress, or you could buy something off the rack. If you want to do something extra special, then you could consider designing your clothing and getting that made. Remember to get a dress that suits your particular body type and also works well with the kind of wedding function you have. Browse through different options to get some ideas.
When preparing for your big day, give yourself a couple of days before the event for a dress rehearsal. Ideally, this should be a rehearsal with the groom so that you can see precisely what your clothes will look like and get comfortable walking down the aisle and spending a few hours in those clothes. This will also allow you to run a final quality check on the clothes and the arrangements and make any necessary changes. If the bridesmaids also wear outfits, include them during the dress rehearsal.
