On The Day: How To Look The Most Beautiful On Your Wedding Day
On the wedding day, everybody needs to look the most at his or her best. Are you really sure how to look the most beautiful on your wedding day? And do you want to be the most beautiful bride before walking down the aisle and give a fairy tale scene for all the wedding guests who attend your wedding party? Nowadays, all of those elements will affect two major things. First, it will give a drama with your figure. Second, it will bring a sophisticated glamour look on your big day. For that, here are some ways that can help you look the most charming on your special day.
1. Wash your hair the night before
On the day of your wedding, you'll want to be sure that you wash and condition your hair. You can do this the night before or in the morning depending on when you sleep and how flexible you are with time
Use a moisturizing shampoo and leave-in conditioner. This will give your mane that shiny look that everyone loves! Avoid using a blow dryer because it will cause frizzes, flyaways, and damage to the texture of your strands (especially if they're fine). Skip using any styling products like gels or sprays too—they'll wreak havoc on any curly styles you may have to go on now!
Don't get a haircut or color at all! Whether it's just trimming split ends or dying an unsightly roots job away from view for good measure (you know what I mean), these things take time! If anything changes about how it looks prior to the big day then schedule an appointment afterward instead so nothing gets messed up leading up until then.
2. Prepare your skin
Remember, you want your skin to look its best on your wedding day. So, a few days before the big day, follow these tips:
Cleanse and exfoliate your face twice a day—for example in the morning and at night—to remove any makeup or dirt that has accumulated over the course of the day. Make sure that you use a mild cleanser and don't scrub too hard as it can damage fragile facial tissue.
Moisturize after cleansing with a lightweight non-comedogenic moisturizer that's appropriate for sensitive skin (if yours is). You don't want to clog up pores!
Apply sunscreen every morning before you go outside so that your skin doesn't burn if it's sunny out—and remember to reapply every two hours! Sunscreen also helps prevent wrinkles from forming prematurely on exposed areas like noses and foreheads over time due simply from being outdoors so often throughout life thus far.
3. Get a manicure and pedicure
Get a manicure and pedicure the day before the wedding, or at least the morning of. It's so easy to forget about your hands and feet when you've got so much else going on, but they really do deserve some love too!
Keep it simple with classic red polish on your nails—nothing too flashy (unless you love glitter!). You want to keep your look elegant, not over-the-top. Don't feel pressured into getting any crazy nail art either—if any part of this process makes you feel uncomfortable or stressed out then don't do it!
4. Do a practice run-through of how you want everything to go
Once you've decided on the style and makeup look you want to wear, it's time to try it out. This is also a good time to practice your hair and makeup routine so that it feels familiar on your wedding day—and practice what you will say during the ceremony. There are a few things that can help make this process go smoothly:
If you're getting married at sunset or close to dusk, think about booking an appointment with a facialist one week before your wedding day. If you have any breakouts or other issues with your skin, now's the time for a professional treatment—not after!
Try on some outfits similar in color and style to the ones that will be worn at the ceremony, so that everyone knows where everything should go. Makeup should be done according to how much coverage you want (and whether there are any sensitive areas).
5. Wear loose clothing and shoes that don't pinch
Wear loose clothing and shoes that don't pinch your feet. You want to feel comfortable throughout the entire day and not be restricted by your clothes or shoes. So, choose those pieces accordingly—it's worth it!
Don't wear high heels if you've never worn them before on a regular basis, especially not in the days leading up to your wedding day (you'll want to save these for when you're done with all of your wedding festivities). Instead, opt for flats or wedges so that your feet are as relaxed as possible during all this fun!
6. Eat before you get dressed, but not too much
Eat a high-protein breakfast with lots of fruit and veggies. If you're not hungry, just eat a little fruit or a protein shake.
Don't eat anything with lots of sugar: It will make you feel bloated which could show through your dress.
Eat something that won't make you feel too full or bloated before getting dressed: That way, when the wedding photographer says "Smile!" you'll feel comfortable and confident to strike that pose.
7. Dress in layers
Keep warm. Nobody wants to get cold feet. Make sure that your dress is warm enough for you to wear in a chilly venue and that it will be comfortable when you're standing at the altar and saying "I do." If you're worried about getting too hot, try wearing a slip underneath your dress.
Don't sweat. Whether this means taking off layers or using deodorant—it's important not to sweat during photos! If you're worried about sweating, we recommend wearing black underwear so it won't show through the white fabric.
Don't mess up your hair or makeup! The last thing any bride wants on her wedding day is unsightly lipstick smears or mascara running down her face when she cries happy tears after seeing her groom walk down the aisle. To avoid this problem altogether, apply waterproof eyeliner before heading out for pictures; once it sets (about 30 minutes), no worries about getting teary-eyed!
8. Drink lots of water
Drinking water is important for your skin, but it's also important to drink the right amount. If you drink too much, you may have to go to the bathroom during the ceremony, which is never a good look. Drinking too little can cause extreme dehydration and make you bloated. So stick with 8 oz at a time throughout the day!
9. Breathe! People notice when you're holding your breath!
A few minutes of breathing exercises can be a calming and centering activity before you walk down the aisle. In yoga, "Ujjayi" breath is done by taking the air in through your nostrils while gently constricting the back of your throat. It sounds like ocean waves, which is why it's called "ocean sound." Here are some other options:
4-7-8 breathing—Inhale for four seconds, hold for seven seconds and exhale slowly for eight seconds (slowly means slowly!) You’ll feel calmer as soon as you start this exercise; use it anytime you need to relax or reduce stress.
Breathe in deeply through your nose, then let it out through pursed lips \. Repeat several times to calm yourself before walking down the aisle!
10. Have a moment by yourself to gather yourself, check your makeup and clothes, and take a deep breath before the ceremony starts.
Take a moment for yourself. If you can, find a quiet place where you can be alone for a few minutes. Check your makeup and clothes in the mirror. Take a deep breath, and remember that you’re marrying the person of your dreams! Don’t forget to breathe—and don't panic if you do start to feel nervous or afraid; just remember that it's all going to be okay in the end!
The wedding will work out fine without a hitch because everything is going to happen exactly as planned, so don't worry about any last-minute snafus or surprises (even though those things will probably happen anyway).
Preparation is key to looking beautiful on your wedding day
The best way to look your best on your wedding day is to prepare. Preparation will keep you calm, relaxed, and ready for the big day. It's also important that you don't try anything new on your wedding day—if it doesn't go right, it could be disastrous!
