There will never be as many photos taken of you as there are on your wedding day. Because of this, and for many other reasons, you want to look (and feel) as radiant as possible on your big day. Here are some of our favorite pre-wedding beauty tips every bride should know.
Consider the Time and Season
The season of your wedding will make a big difference in how you prepare for it. If your wedding is in the summer, you’ll want to use products that don’t make your skin oily or shiny. If your wedding is in the winter, you’ll want to moisturize generously to keep your skin soft, smooth, and healthy. Additionally, if your ceremony is during the day and your reception is at night, be sure to choose beauty products that last for long periods without smudging or fading.
An important pre-wedding beauty tip every bride should know may surprise you, as it can be summed up in one word: water. No matter when your wedding is, it’s imperative that you drink lots of water, especially in the days leading up to the wedding. Water will help flush out toxins and make your skin appear softer and more supple.
Whiten Your Teeth
Start whitening your teeth a few months before your wedding day. This way, you’ll have plenty of time to perfect your smile. You’ll also feel so much more confident—you’ll be surprised at how much more you’ll smile, especially in photos!
Get Some Color
Get some sun a week to a few days before your wedding to give your skin a sun-kissed glow. If you choose to go the spray tan route, schedule your appointment at least a few days before your wedding day to let the color adjust to your skin. If you choose to get some sun the natural way, be careful not to spend too much time outdoors and be mindful of your tan lines. There are also quite a few steps you can take to prepare your skin for a gorgeous tan. Whether you choose to get a spray tan or sit out in the sun, your sun-touched appearance will look stunning in your photos.
