Get Wedding Season Ready - The Bride & Bridesmaid Edition

The wedding season is well and truly upon us now, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to do a post on what steps to take to get yourself ready, wether you're the Bride or Bridesmaid. 

1. As a bride, if you're planning on having a fake tan on your wedding day, trial run the fake tan when doing your makeup trial. That way the make up artist can match your foundation perfectly. If you can't then let her know that you plan on having a fake tan on your wedding day. 

2. Get your body wedding day ready. Exfoliate your body from the neck down to your toes. Don't use a body exfoliator on your face as it's usually to harsh. Make sure you get your waxing done a few days before the big day incase of breakouts. If you don't wax, make sure you shave the day before.

3. Have a pedicure. Yes there will be photos of the feet.  I know there were on my wedding day.

4. Have a manicure. You don't want to be the one with a chipped nail that will get caught on the delicate fabric of your dress.

5. Have a spray tan or apply a tan at home. I prefer to do that 2 days prior to a special event as the colour seems to be most natural on me on day 2.

6. Wash your hair the night before. They don't call second day hair the best hair day for no reason.

7. Have a facial a week before the big date. A facial can sometimes make you break out, so go for a gentle facial. You can also do your own at home facial using products that you know and trust.

8. Exfoliate your lips! This is such an important step that a lot of brides and bridesmaids forget. There is nothing worse than having chapped lips on the day for many reasons.  Lipstick will not sit well on cracked lips, you'll be forever licking or biting your lips to get that yucky feeling of and and lip product will settle into the cracks and dry patches and it will look patch and uneven.

9. The most important part, wether you're the bride or the bridesmaid is ENJOY THE DAY! For the bride, this is the day you marry the love of your life. Your handsome groom won't care if the bouquet isn't exactly how you pictured it or if it's raining on the day. And the bridesmaids,  the beautiful bride picked you to be by her side no matter what so be her support and rock and remind her of the bigger picture.

Here are a few pictures of my wedding day! It was one of the best in my life!
