If you are planning to get married within the next year, you can make sure that you’re the most beautiful bride ever by getting started with your bridal beauty routine as soon as possible. Rather than just getting your hair, makeup and nails done on the morning of the wedding, making some changes to your regular beauty, health and fitness routine throughout the year is a great way to make sure that you’re looking and feeling your absolute best as you walk down the aisle. These changes aren’t just for brides, either – why not get your bridesmaids to join in and start preparing early too?
Know Your Budget
Although it’s not an actual change to your beauty routine, it’s important to understand exactly how much you will have allocated to your beauty budget for on the big day so that you can be best prepared. The last thing that you want is to need something such as nail infills, for example, the day before your wedding – only to find out that you’ll have to fork out more money from your non-wedding funds in order to get them. Booking a wedding package such as those offered by UK Wedding Savings can be a great way to keep control of your budget by booking the venues, catering and more all at once for a set price.
Look After Your Nails
It’s up to you whether you want to go au naturale or have your nails done for your big day, but regardless of your decision, now is the time to really start looking after your nails. Expect to have lots of photographs taken of your hands – specifically, your left hand, with the rings on it – on your wedding day, so you’ll want your nails to be in the best condition ever. Now is also a great time to try out all the different styles of nails which you are considering for your wedding day to discover which ones look best.
In order to have a gleaming bright smile in all of your wedding photographs, book yourself in for a few tooth whitening sessions with your dentist or at a salon beforehand. You might also want to look into good quality home whitening kits to top up your shine, and it’s always a good idea to switch to a good tooth whitening toothpaste at least three months before your big day.
Tame Your Brows
If you currently pluck your eyebrows yourself, it’s a good idea to get them looked at by a brow professional as women who pluck their own eyebrows can often over-pluck, leading to thin ends and the wrong shape for their face. If your brows aren’t the shape that you’d like, now’s the best time to start growing them out so that you can have them professionally threaded or waxed to the perfect shape for your wedding day.
Along with that, it’s a good idea to start making any changes to your hair now, too – don’t wait till right before the day if you want to have a new hairstyle for getting wed.
And after you’ve done all this, remember to just breathe and take time out periodically for self-care!
