6 Months Until the Big Day...How Can I Look My Best?
Published: 21 Jan 2010 - in beauty
Your Christmas cards were out early, your cake was iced before November and you finished Christmas shopping in the nick of time. You will now hopefully be able to apply the same skills that you applied to your Christmas planning to your wedding planning. If you are getting married this summer then you will more than likely want to start preparing your body and your mind so that you look your best for the big day head.
6 months is plenty of time to rejuvenate your body from those Christmas cocktails and one too many dips into the Quality Street tin. Use your time wisely and be crafty with your budget. You have probably already booked your wedding photographer but your wedding photographs are going to be the memories that you keep forever, so making sure that your smile, teeth and complexion look their best is essential. If you have always wanted a whiter smile then now might be the time to go for it. There are several professional teeth whitening outlets that can make your pearly whites really stand out and look amazing. If there is any time in your life when you should go for a procedure like this then I think you should go for it.
Not only are manicures totally affordable, but they keep your nails looking glamorous and healthy. Maybe you could trial a manicure before your hen party?
Your wedding make-up will be a very exciting experience. Whether you are doing it yourself of having a make-over done by a professional you will want your skin and complexion to look flawless. If you are doing your own make-up then look in the New Year sales for something a little more pricey than what you would usually spend. Quality make up will last through out the day and will fade less quickly than your every day make-up. Be sure to buy a good waterproof mascara, because you will more than likely feel emotional at some point through out your wedding day, if not all the way through.
To create a glossy shine to your hair ask your hairdresser to recommend a good shampoo that you can use in the lead up to your wedding day. A fresh cut about a week before and six weeks before that will make your hair look healthy, shiny and in perfect condition to hold a veil or tiara.
You are going to have a busy schedule between now and your wedding day, but try not to over do it. Stressing out over wedding planning issues will not help your appearance in the long run.
