Beauty Tips for Your Wedding *

*This is a collaborative post.

Planning a wedding is supposed to be the happiest day of your life, but a lot of brides spend it worrying about everything being perfect and looking their best. There is a lot of pressure on brides to make their wedding magical for everyone in attendance, and this includes the way she looks. Take a deep breath and relax. Following these tips can get your wedding back to extraordinary just for you. 

Don’t Procrastinate

Most ways to improve your skin, hair, or other physical attributes do not happen overnight. You look better when you are living a healthy lifestyle, and that takes time! If you wait until the last minutes to try to get flawless skin or flyaway free hair, you are going to add a lot of stress to your life and probably not be happy with the results. Start by making small changes to promote healthier living, and your body will reflect that. 

Do Your Research

When you start making these small lifestyle changes, make sure you are choosing modifications that will bring you the results that you want. Whether it is drinking more water, trying a new beauty product, starting a skincare routine, or exercising, you want to make sure it is safe for you, actually healthy for your body, and is in line with your end goals. You also want to make sure what you are choosing works for you. Sometimes we admire a look or color on another person, but it does not have the same effect on us. Be true to who you are, so your beauty can shine through. 


Looking the best on your wedding day will also have a lot to do with what colors compliment your skin tone and coloring. You will probably be wearing white yourself, but think about your bridesmaids, ties on your groom, flowers you are holding and surrounded by all day. The colors you choose make a difference. Keeping in mind the season in which you get married will also play a significant role in what colors you want, so set the date with that in mind. While pastel pink is perfect for a spring wedding, it would look out of place in the fall. 

Check the Details

The thing that will make your wedding over the top perfect is to make sure all the details are in order. Sloppy details will give your wedding a sloppy feel, while polished details speak to perfection. Small details or embellishments on your dress or veil, how you choose to do your nails, and jewelry and makeup choices will make all the difference on your big day. 

Be Prepared

If you are having your makeup and hair styled by a professional on your big day, then you need to come to appointments prepared. For trial appointments, make sure you come with pictures of the look you are going for as well as a photo of your dress that will give them the feel for your wedding. It would be best if you also tried to wear a white shirt that is similar in shade to your wedding dress, so you know the coloring will look right on the actual day.
