Every bride wants to look her absolute best on her wedding day, especially when the photographer starts snapping pictures. If you want to ensure that you are glowing on your big day, you should start a few months in advance. Here are some tips for looking great for your wedding.
2-3 Months in Advance
If you want to lose a few pounds before your big day, now is the time to start. Increase your exercise regimen to include a 15 to 30 minute brisk walk each day, and start eating lighter. Avoid sugary and fatty foods and snack more on vegetables and fruits. You can also burn more calories by making your day a little bit harder. For instance, take the stairs rather than the elevator, swim for an hour each day and park further out in the parking lot when you go shopping.
1 Month in Advance
You’re probably considering a spray tan or several afternoons in the tanning bed to give you a healthy glow before the big day. If you’re going to start tanning, you’ll want to start now, and visit the tanning bed 1 to 2 times a week. If you’re going to get a spray tan, try one now so you know it’s not going to be too orange or streaky for your wedding day. If you want a brighter smile, now is a great time to consider having your teeth whitened or using an at home whitening kit.
1 Week in Advance
Now is when you should get your final spray tan. You never want to get it the day before, just in case the tan doesn’t work out well. Getting it now gives you a week for it to fade slightly. If you’re considering having a haircut, now is the best time to get it. Again, doing this the day before could create panic if the haircut doesn’t turn out how you planned.
2 Days in Advance
Exfoliate your skin thoroughly now, so it has time to heal and any reddening can fade before the big day. You’ll want to do your manis and pedis now, too, so your fingers and toes look great (especially if you’re wearing open toe shoes). Now is also a great time for waxing to make sure your skin is smooth, silky and hair-free.
If you follow these tips, you’ll have the day before to relax before getting make-up and hair done the morning of your wedding, and you’ll look fantastic for your groom and your wedding pictures.
