TO LOOK GREAT ON YOUR WEDDING DAY
great on your wedding day means
relaxed, and ready to start a brand
new existence with the person whom
you've chosen to spend your life
with. Your hair, nails, makeup, dress—and how you look in that dress—are
all part of becoming the bride
you want to be on that special
Since pictures taken on that day
remain part of your life forever,
it's important to look and feel your
dress is one of the most important
items in your
wedding plans, so make sure you take
enough time to choose
one that suits you - not your best
friend, not your bridesmaids, and
not your mother. For the day of your
wedding, you'll want a dress in which
you can stand, walk and dance in
without worrying about "wardrobe
malfunctions" or causing you
discomfort. Allow necessary time
if you decide on having the dress
made, but even if bought "off
the rack," you'll need to factor
in time for tailoring and any adjustments.
You don't want to overpower your
dress and headpiece with
a flamboyant hair style or color
that overwhelms everything else.
Keep it simple and classic, and remember
to practice the look you want at
home or with your stylist before
the wedding day.
Have your nails professionally manicured
the day before
the wedding. This is one thing you
don't want to do far in advance.
Reduce the chances of a broken nail,
chipped polish, or if using applied
nails, one coming off, by having
your manicure as late as possible.
If you are not inclined toward colored
polishes or long fingernails, make
sure they are neatly trimmed, filed,
polished, and buffed. Your hands
will be a focus of attention when
showing off that new wedding ring
and for photos!
Makeup is the last thing you'll
need to worry over, and
that comes on the big day, itself.
Don't try to transform yourself into
a different person with dramatic
eye makeup or garish lipstick. Make
the real you look better!
Use a slightly heavier hand than
with your usual daytime
makeup so your photos won't have
you appearing washed-out looking,
but don't overdo it. And if your
wedding is at night, with more subtle
lighting, apply makeup as though
you were going to a club or restaurant
at night—a little heavier than
daytime, but not much! Avoid deep
red lipstick as well as too-pale
pink. Frosted eyeshadows or lipsticks
are definite no-nos.
Buy fresh mascara to avoid clumping.
Also, if you have sensitive skin,
this is NOT the time to try a new
brand. The last thing you want to
do is head for the altar with blotches
or zits thanks to an allergic reaction.
The night before your wedding is
not the time for partying
so get eight hours of restful sleep.
If you're having a rehearsal dinner,
or a bachelorette bash, make sure
that it ends early. Drink moderately
or, better yet, not at all. Bloodshot
eyes and a banging hangover will
not make for a fun wedding.
Don't gorge yourself
the night before because we all know
that there are strange forces at
work which will try to
make your wedding gown just a wee
bit snug in the morning.
To overcome excitement and nerves,
try taking a long walk—it can help with pre-nuptial jitters.
A relaxing bath with soothing background
music, a cup of herbal tea, and you
should be ready to doze off with
images of a happy future marriage
in your dreams.
With these tips, you're sure to
have the perfect wedding
day. May this day be the beginning
of a lifetime of joy
