Every bride/groom wants to look beautiful when they walk down the aisle. When you are paying thousands of dollars for photographs, you may as well do your best! Chances are, he/she loves you just the way you are, but there are some considerations you can make to ensure you are on top of your game.
Selecting a dress that will make you look and feel great is an important first step. But what happens when you look in the mirror and notice trouble spots like saggy arms or unsightly folds in your back? When this happens it’s not uncommon for brides to try quick-fix diets to help them get in shape. Unfortunately, many dieting brides make fitness mistakes that not only prevent them from reaching their goals but also cause unnecessary stress and sometimes even illness. Those are two things no bride needs! Here are five of the most common diet mistakes as well as some tips to help you avoid them.
Doing all you can to achieve a healthy glow before your wedding day is a worthwhile pursuit. Daily exfoliation is recommended in the lead up to your wedding, and some brides/grooms also opt for a facial in the fortnight before the big day.
Be careful not to have your eyebrows waxed on the day of the wedding, as large red marks can look unsightly in photographs! A gentle exfoliation, cleanse, and moisturizing regime should be best to keep your skin supple for the big day.
If you are a bride, have your dress and underwear fitted by a professional! Ill-fitted dresses or incorrect undergarments can turn the perfect wedding day into a nightmare, and you may not even realise it until you get your photos back!
Ensure you attend regular dress fittings in the lead up to your wedding day, even if your dress was bought off-the-rack. It could still pay to have it altered to fit your individual body shape. Ask your dressmaker for tips on the right underwear and perhaps even order the garments from the dressmaker - as they have the best idea of bridal underwear necessities!
Shoes also need to be comfortable. Not only will you be exchanging your vows in them, but you will be traipsing around town to get photos taken and kicking up your heels on the dance floor at the reception. Your shoes need to do more than match your dress, they must be comfortable and the correct size!
For grooms, suit fitting is just as important as getting the bride’s dress right. Ensure you have a tailor fit your suit and undershirt to your individual size. There is nothing worse than coat tails that drag on the ground or trouser legs that finish halfway between the knee and the ankle! Grooms should also give their shoes a good shine before the big day - look your best!
Preparing for a wedding can be an exhausting task. Ensure that you keep communicating with each other and make joint decisions about what your perfect wedding day will hold. It is also great to put aside some time for non-wedding related pursuits, such as sports, or spending time with friends and family.
Meditation and massage can also be helpful in the lead up to your big day and ensure that both the bride and groom are happy, glowing and feeling their absolute best!
