BELLS BITES// Alright brides, this one is for you. You’ve put all your time and energy into making sure every detail is perfect and everyone involved is happy, so now it’s time to make sure you’re feeling your best for your wedding day
1. Try On Your Full Look Ahead of Time
You will have enough details to think about the morning of your wedding, but wondering whether your bridal look is everything you’ve dreamed of shouldn’t be one of them! That’s why you should try on your full look — dress, hair, makeup, and accessories — well before the wedding day. Take it from women who have been there, you’ll feel so much better knowing that all the accessories you bought coordinate perfectly, the hairstyle you saw on Pinterest really is that pretty in real life, and your makeup flawlessly ties everything together. If you’re getting bridal portraits done, you have the perfect reason to try on your full look (and the added bonus of seeing it on camera). If you’re not getting bridal portraits done, schedule a girls’ dinner for that evening so you can wear the makeup and/or hairstyle
2. Stay Hydrated
So the rule is that you should drink at least half your body weight in ounces of water per day. Not only does it helps keep your energy up, it gives your skin a gorgeous glow, keeps your metabolism firing all day and decreases bloating, so you’ll feel as good on the inside as you look on the outside. When you’re dehydrated, your body has to fight both the physical stress of dehydration and any emotional stress you might feel on your wedding day, which will make it harder to be fully present. So Bella, make sure to keep a water bottle handy and ask your MOH to check that it is full all day long.
3. Whatever You, Don't Switch Up Your Beauty Routine.
The night before or the morning of your wedding is not the time to try out a new beauty routine, such as a face mask you saw on Instagram or a new shape for your eyebrows. If you want to experiment with new products, buy and try them at least three to four weeks before the wedding so you’ll have plenty of time to see how your skin reacts. There would be nothing worse than trying something new the night before and waking up with undesirable results. So, give yourself time to find what makes your skin look best and stick to that all the way up through the wedding day.
