“I DO’s & I DON’Ts”
Getting Married? We thought we would come up with a few do’s and don’ts for the run up to your wedding and the morning of your wedding to help all you lovely brides stay as relaxed as possible.
Follow these key tips:
• Invest in a good cleanser and exfoliating routine prior to your wedding, to keep your skin glowing and looking its best. If there’s ever a time to get into a good face washing routine, now is the time!
• Ensure you leave you and your bridal party enough time during the morning of the wedding for hair and makeup. Around an hour for each member of your party. The last thing you want to do is be time watching and feeling anxious.
• Get ready in a room with natural light, as you want your make up to look as flawless and natural as possible.
• Make sure you have a place or person to carry essentials to freshen up such as lipstick, loose powder for touch ups during the day.
• Go for a tanning trial if you are planning to have a spray tan as there is nothing worse than a patchy orange tan (and a make up trial is a must!!)
• Make a brief schedule to stick by for the morning of your wedding so you aren’t running behind and so you don’t end up feeling stressed.
• Practice walking around in your shoes a few times before your wedding day. Try doing a few chores around the house in your wedding footwear (when your fiancé isn’t home) to ensure you’ll be able to dance the night away!
• Get a facial the week before your wedding as facials can bring up any spots lying below the skins surface – you don’t want these on the morning of your wedding and don’t pick at your skin (sometimes easier said than done!!)
• Try out a edgy new look for either yourself or your bridesmaid party, keep it safe and soft as you don’t want heavy makeup and crazy hairstyles in your wedding photographs.
• Let one bridesmaid have heavier make up than others as this will pick up in photos and look unbalanced.
• Stress. I know it’s easy to say but your wedding day is one of the most special days and everyone says it goes by so quickly so don’t spend time worrying about the little things just enjoy every single second.
• Forget to eat throughout the day and at your reception. It can be easy to neglect to nibble with all the excitement, but a few glasses of champagne can be dangerous on an empty stomach.
