1. Eat and Drink healthily
In the days or even weeks before. Pay attention to what you eat and drink
For instance, eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, particularly those with a high water content. Eat a balanced diet as you will need the energy. Drink plenty of water to flush out any toxins, so your skin looks amazing.
Try and get regular exercise. This will help maintain your health and energy levels on the day. It is also a good stress reliever
3. Skin care
Start a good skin care regime, your skin will thank you for it and this will help keep blemishes at bay, which will help you feel good and confident about how you look on your special day. It will also serve as a good base for applying your make-up, which in turn will help you look your best.
Practice experimenting with make-up and what colours will suit you, bear in mind the colour of your dress and the season. Book your make-up artist in plenty of time and have a trial session, so you know you will love it. It’ll be fun too.
Experiment with different hairstyles. Ensure you are comfortable as you will be wearing your hair this way for a long time. Try on any hair accessories in advance. Book your hairdresser early on and have fun practicing how you’d like your hair. This goes for your bridesmaids too.
Ensure you have any parties in advance and don’t have your hen night the night before.
Make sure you get your beauty sleep and try to get into this habit a few nights in advance if you can. This will keep your eyes looking sparkly, help you feel rested so you are at your best on your special day
Try and take a few quiet moments to yourself each day. You may choose to meditate, be still or read. When you are mentally at ease it will help you to stay calm, even if those around you are flapping around.
A smile now and then throughout the day will help you to feel good about yourself and will also make you look good
Be confident and rest assured in the knowledge that you look amazing and that you are loved and admired by the one you love. Take a deep breath…
You’ve Got this… Enjoy your day
