All eyes on you (no pressure, right?) and you want to look amazing while saying “I do.” After all, the photos are forever! Here are 8 tips to get you looking and feeling your best in time for the big day.
Strong, sexy, sleek—you’re gonna be a knockout in your wedding gear. All you need is a little help from a seasoned pro. A personal trainer can keep workouts fun and motivate you reach your fitness goals.
With all the pre-wedding festivities—engagement dinners, showers, bachelor/ette parties—it’s easy to fall off the food wagon. Get pro help with meal planning to stay in shape for the wedding. Bonus: the healthy habits you develop will last long after the wedding is over, too.
Wedding planning is stressful. You don’t think you’ll get worked up over cake frosting and napkin colors, but you do. It’s normal. The trick to keeping your cool? A massage… or two. Schedule one a few days before the wedding to relax and bring you back into the moment.
Get your glow on in a pre-wedding pampering session with visiting friends or family. For harsher treatments (like a chemical peel), you’ll need to give your skin 2-3 months to recover. Gentler treatments can be done a week or two before your wedding day.
Lasting from four to six weeks, lash extensions are especially convenient if you’re having a weekend-long wedding and need to look terrific at multiple events. Schedule your appointment for 10-14 days prior to your wedding to ensure you don’t have any reactions.
Get the gang together, it’s time to partake in the time-honored tradition of the pre-wedding mani/pedi party. Skip the stuffy salon and have the nail specialists come to your place. Kick back and relax while you dish about cold feet and hot nail colors.
So many fabulous options! Will you go for a classic chignon? Romantic, tousled waves? Vintage braids with floral touches? Whatever you choose, your hair is going to look amazing. Get you and your maids set up with morning-of appointments let the stylists work their magic.
You’re going to be much busier on your wedding morning than you realize. Now is not the time to attempt to DIY. You barely have time to drink coffee, much less focus on applying the greatest makeup the world’s ever seen you in. Hire a pro makeup artist and be sure to schedule a trial-run a few weeks prior.
