Your wedding day should be the most magical day of your life; it’s the day that you marry your soulmate and start your life together as one. Of course, if you don’t look and feel your best, the chances are that your wedding day won’t be the best day of your life. While it’s not all about looks, a bride should always feel beautiful, happy and confident. To ensure that on your wedding day, you look the most radiant you’ve ever looked, here’s what you need to do:
Get a spray tan
It’s amazing how much more confident a spray tan can make you feel. You’ve heard of body contouring, right? Well, a good spray tan will naturally contour your body, hiding your ‘problem’ areas and making you look and feel better. If you’ve never had a spray tan before, get one done a few weeks before the wedding to ensure that you know what shade you need. The last thing you want is to look orange on your wedding day, so it’s best to have a practice run beforehand.
Reserve the day before for relaxing
The day before your wedding, reserve for relaxing. If you’re not relaxed and rested, you won’t look and feel your best on your wedding day. So aim to spend the day before at a spa with your bridesmaids. Get massages, drink champagne, have your nails done; spend the day relaxing and unwinding in style. Take some time out and you’ll look and feel better for it. Stress has a big impact on how you look and feel, so it’s worth taking the time to rest and relax before your big day.
Have a relaxing bubble bath
On the morning of your wedding, don’t have a rushed shower, have a relaxing bubble bath instead. The chances are that you’ll be feeling a little nervous and stressed out, so relaxing in a bubble bath is ideal. It should help to soothe you and calm your nerves.
Build up your scent in layers
You no doubt want your perfume to last all day, so what you need to do is apply your scent in layers. Invest in a body cream that matches your perfume, as this will help to keep you scent in place for longer. When you get out of the bath, while you’re still damp, apply a few squirts of perfume. Then, once you’re dry apply your matching body cream. Then, once you’re in your dress, spritz a little more perfume on, on your neck, wrists, and in your hair. This is sure to keep the scent in place all day long.
Hire a makeup artist
Even if you’re a pro at makeup, don’t attempt to do your own. You’ll be feeling nervous and stressed out and won’t need the extra pressure. Hire a makeup artist so that you can sit back and relax. Just make sure to do a test run a few weeks before, so that your makeup artist knows exactly what you want. If there’s any particular makeup you want to use, you can always buy it and give it to them to use. For instance, if you want to wear Velour mink lashes, buy some and ask your makeup artist to apply them. You can still have the look you want, you’ll just have less to stress about, that’s all.
Use a hair stylist
The same goes for your hair, even if you’re hair styling pro, it’s best to hire an expert. That way, you don’t have to stress about your hair, you can just sit back and relax and leave it down to your hair stylist. If you’re stuck for ideas, have a browse online. Any ideas you like, save to show your hair stylist.
To look and feel your best on your wedding day, take the above tips and advice on board. Take the time out to relax and unwind and leave your hair and makeup to the pros, so that you don’t have to stress about it.
