Like most brides, you’ve probably spent a lot of time daydreaming about the moment you will walk down the aisle. How you will look; the looks of love from friends and family, and, of course, the emotion on your partner’s face. (You may even be hoping that he sheds a tear of two.) Like every part of your big day, you most probably want every little step down the aisle to be perfect.
Not only do you want to get the reaction that you’ve always imagined from your nearest and dearest, but you also want to feel gorgeous. This really is one of the most important things when it comes to your wedding day and how much you enjoy it. Because, the more amazing you feel, the better time you will have.
Want to know how to look (and feel) drop-dead gorgeous on your wedding day? Then have a read of these tips and tricks, and implement them in your wedding day prep.
Put a skincare routine into place
Part of looking and feeling fabulous when you walk down the aisle is having glowing, radiant skin. After all, the last thing you want on your wedding day is skin that’s covered in blemishes or has broken out. Obviously, if this happens, it’s not the end of the world. It’s just a case of applying a lot of concealer, to hide blemishes from sight. However, ideally, it’s best to prevent these kinds of problems with a skincare routine. This should be started at least two months before your big day. And should consist of daily cleansing, toning, and moisturizing, as well as, weekly exfoliating. To give your skin a radiance boost, book yourself in for a facial or microdermabrasion treatment. This will smooth your skin and make breakouts and blemishes less likely.
Frost yourself in diamonds
They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, and for bride’s that is most definitely true. While you don’t want to upstage your dress with too much ‘bling’, what you do want to do is ensure that you look dressed up enough. After all, you’ll only be a bride once. So, a month or so before your wedding, go bridal jewelry shopping and look for pieces that you could use to ‘frost’ yourself with. Decide on the type of diamond jewelry that you want, such as vintage pieces, like Dover Jewelry and Diamonds offer, for instance. Then, choose a few pieces that match the style of your dress and add that little extra touch of glamor.
Book yourself a pamper day
One of the best things you can do to ensure that you look gorgeous when you walk down the aisle is eliminate any pre-wedding stress with a pamper day. Think massages, champagne, and a relaxing afternoon in a hot tub or sauna. Stress can have a big impact on your physical appearance, so it’s important to destress before your big day, to ensure that you look your very best.
Get your hair and makeup professionally done
Professional hair and makeup might be expensive, but it’s what you need to look incredible. Regardless of how amazing you are at hairstyles or makeup, on your wedding day you are going to be nervous. This means that you may struggle to achieve the look that you want. That’s why it’s best to hire a professional hairdresser and makeup artist to do your hair and makeup. So that you can ensure that when you walk down the aisle, you look and feel incredible.
To look and feel like the most beautiful bride, take note of the tips and suggestions above. So that when you walk down the aisle, you get the reaction that you’ve always dreamed of – looks of love and an emotional groom.
