In almost slow motion, you watched the love of your life get down on one knee, pull out the ring from their pocket, and ask you the four magical words, “Will you marry me?” Flash-forward a few months, and you’ve created your Pinterest board, made your guest list, and hired your photographer (just a few of the many wedding planning tasks on your to-do list). Unfortunately, amid all the hustle and bustle, couples often forget about preparing themselves. After all, all eyes will be on you, so you definitely want to look and feel your best. Unsure where to start? Here are a few tips to help!
#1. Eat a Balanced Diet
From cake tastings to food pairings, there are a lot of meal-related wedding tasks that your tastebuds will love. However, it is important to throw some vitamin-rich foods into your diet as well. Not only will this give your body the nutrients it needs to function properly, but it will also minimize bloating, promote clear skin, and prevent illness. (Adding 30 minutes of movement to your daily regimen will help as well!).
#2. Practice Your Hair and Makeup
Whether you are doing your hair and makeup yourself or hiring a professional, a trial run (or two!) is crucial. After all, your inspiration picture or the idea in your head can look very different depending on your face shape and coloring, and the last thing you want is to find that out the morning of.
#3. Focus on Your Smile
From one minor chip to severe discoloration, dental flaws can make you feel extremely self-conscious on your wedding day, even with the perfect dress and flawless makeup. That’s why I always recommend visiting your dentist in Texas City for a smile enhancement beforehand. Getting started early will ensure you have plenty of time to straighten, brighten, and otherwise perfect your smile.
#4. Follow a Skincare Regimen
Getting a facial or trying a new face mask the week of may sound like a good idea, but experimenting with your skincare regimen so close to your wedding is risky. Instead, try locking a routine in place well in advance. That way, you have time to find out what works and what doesn’t. By the time your big day is here, both you and your skin will be ready for the spotlight.
#5. Get Plenty of Sleep
It’s no secret that planning a wedding can be incredibly stressful. However, if you don’t focus on a healthy sleep schedule, all the long days and sleepless nights will show on your face. To prevent that from happening, try using calming essential oils, not looking at your phone for an hour before bed, and listening to relaxing music.
