We’re here today to talk about wedding day prep. Here are some tips to help you look and feel your best.

Tanning

If you’re going to tan before the wedding, be sure to avoid tan lines – especially if you have a strapless dress. If you’re getting married in the summer, make sure that you’re tanning evenly to avoid tan lines in the two to three months leading up to your wedding.

Hair & Makeup

Get your hair and makeup professionally done. Be sure to do a trial run beforehand to ensure you like the look before your big day.

Accessories

Try on your dress with different accessories you think you want to wear on your wedding day. This way, you know what it looks like with the dress, so you know for sure what you want to wear, and are not trying to decide on a necklace, etc., on the day of your wedding. This takes away getting ready time and causes unnecessary stress.

Shoes

Walk around in your wedding shoes before the big day to get them worn in. Also, take some sandpaper to the bottoms to scuff them up a bit, so you don’t slip down the aisle or on the dance floor. If you walk around in the grass, you’ll want to get some high-heel protector caps, so you don’t sink in the grass. Also, be conscious of walking on uneven grass, so you don’t face plant in your pretty white dress.

Eat & Drink

The best way for you to look your best is to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water the days leading up to and the day of your wedding. Also, be sure to eat on your wedding day throughout the day, so you don’t pass out or get a headache. And if you’re going to drink alcohol, don’t get drunk before photos – especially if it’s a red wine that can stain everything (including your mouth). Instead, save it for after all the big events at your reception.
