Top tips for looking your best on your wedding day

Top tips for looking your best on your wedding day

There are a lot of factors to contribute to you looking and feeling your best on your wedding day. Here are some tips to follow from the moment they pop the question to the minutes before you walk down the aisle!

Healthy balanced lifestyle
It goes without saying that drinking plenty of water, getting your five a day and throwing on the Nike's and heading out for 30 minutes a day will work wonders for the body. It's time to stop waiting for the New Year to make healthy lifestyle changes and start now. Get used to keeping a bottle of water in your handbag to have on the go, a piece of fruit at your desk as a snack and walk to work where possible. You'll feel all the more better for it. A good eight hours sleep a night will keep you feeling fresh and vibrant.

SPF
Just because we don't see much sun in our changeable little country, it doesn't mean that the UV rays from the sun don't break through the clouds. The famous key to healthy skin is to wear SPF and with most foundations and make up brands containing the sun protection, you're bound to have angelic skin on your big day! 

Skincare
It's oh so convenient to take the war paint off with a makeup wipe and head to bed at the end of a long day. However, it will leave your skin crying out for TLC. Get into a routine of cleansing and moisturising to keep your blemishes at bay and get any remaining makeup out of your pores. Keeping your face looking fab will have you ready for your wedding day close ups.

Time out
Trying to balance life between work and family on top of your wedding can be a crazy time for the bride to be. In the lead up to the big day, tensions will be running high. Take a time out at least one day a week to do a non-wedding related activity that you enjoy. Go for a run, head to the cinema or call up the girls and head for a meal to clear the head. Staying sane is important so taking time out will be necessary for the busy bride to be.

Hair and makeup trials
There is no reason that you should be upset with your bridal look on your wedding day. Chat with your hair stylist and makeup artist about what you want and what they think will work best. Do some trials to make sure you like the look and know for certain what it will look like on the day.
