Happy Thursday! Many of you know that I attended my sister’s wedding this past weekend. It was a wonderful time spent with friends and family, celebrating an amazing occasion. And as you know, or at least in the South, with June beginning tomorrow, wedding season is upon us. I was a June bride myself, back in June 2004. One day I promise to share the photos with you, of that whirlwind of a fabulous day!
There is an almost impossible amount of preparation involved in setting up a wedding – you have to find venues for different events, figure out your guest list, send out the invites, etc., and that’s all without getting down to the details! It’s perfectly natural that, in the midst of all of this, the most personal sort of preparation can be easy to overlook. However, you also need to make sure that you yourself are looking your absolute best on your wedding day. Not only is this simply nice for you and your husband or wife-to-be, but you will also be looking at photographs from your wedding day for the rest of your life – it would be nice to look your best in those photos! So, here are a few suggestions for how to start making sure that you look as nice as possible on the day of the wedding.
• Start getting in shape now, not later. Plenty of people tell themselves that they’ll be in the best shape of their lives for their weddings – but then, as mentioned previously, the planning gets in the way, and it becomes tough to take time to exercise. This is how people end up with a few weeks to go, telling themselves that a short jog every day in that time period will make a difference. However, if you truly want to shed all of your extra weight and look like you’re in top shape for your wedding, you should start getting in shape as early as possible. A few months of consistent exercise will make just about anyone look better, so starting early is well worth it.
• Work on the little things as well. Getting in shape seems like the main priority to a lot of people who are about to get married, but you also want to make sure that your face looks great for wedding photos. Visit topdentists.com for information on fast and effective teeth whitening; explore different skin care products to make sure your skin is smooth and unblemished; make sure that your hair is the right style and length by the day of the wedding. These touches can contribute hugely to how you look on the big day.
• Finally, when you’re picking out your suit or dress, don’t succumb to the idea of doing something just because it’s unique. Of course, you can still get creative if you want, but don’t forget to dress like you. You don’t want to look like someone else’s idea on your wedding, so while it can be tempting to try something outlandish with your attire, you may appreciate it in the years to come if you stick to your own personal style – after all, this is what your fiancé loves anyway!
