7 Ways to Beat Stress and Look Fabulous On Your Wedding Day

Your wedding day is fast approaching! Of course, you want to look beautiful and elegant, like a queen on your wedding day. Unlike a queen though, you don’t have a team of ladies who are always there to fulfill your wishes and desires. Eventually, you may realize that looking your best is hard, especially on top of all the preparations.

Indeed, planning a wedding is exhausting. But this does not mean that there is no way for you to look and feel your best on your big day. In addition to getting a professional bride service, here are seven things you can do to look best on your wedding day.

1. Choose your dress way ahead of time

The centerpiece of the wedding ceremony is your wedding dress. Therefore, it should look absolutely perfect. And the best way to choose a dress that suits you is to allow plenty of time and look for it in long in advance.

Take note to prepare the dress for the big day by making tailoring alterations nearer the time. This means ensuring that it will fit you perfectly and that it complements the theme and style of the ceremony.

2. Brighten your smile

Your smile will be captured in all the wedding photography. So, for a confidence boost, consider heading to your dentist for a professional teeth whitening service. It may seem easy to just invest in whitening strips or trays, but an in-office service is a proven way to achieve a whiter, healthier smile that lasts for a longer time.

But, try to do this at least three months before your wedding day so your teeth won’t look too dazzling on your photos. Also, avoid scheduling for this dental service too often because it can wear down your enamel, which then makes your teeth too sensitive.

3. Prepare your face

To achieve a smooth surface for easy makeup application, you may need to exfoliate your face weekly. Also, consider plumbing up the fine lines around your face. A hydrating serum is a great choice. Apply it every day before your makeup for smoother and softer skin.

A monthly facial for at least three months before your wedding day can also help. Professional facials are known to improve the health of your skin, helping it to look brighter and clearer.

4. Book for a makeup test run

A makeup test run is crucial to achieving the look you want for your special day. So consider doing it at least three months beforehand. This way, you can fine-tune your look so there will be no questions and frustrations on the day of your wedding.

Scheduling your makeup trial during your engagement photo shoot is a smart choice. This will make sure that you know how to look beautiful in your wedding photos despite different lighting conditions. If your makeup appears too subtle or harsh on the photos, your makeup artist can use their makeup expertise and fix the issue right away.

5. Have a hair plan

Just like planning your makeup, you should also work with your hairstylist in advance. Ideally, you should choose a hairstyle that matches your dress, decorations, and the ceremony. If you want to wear a headpiece, you should choose and buy one ahead of time so that your hair stylist knows what they will be working with on the day.

Pro tip: Since hair and makeup go hand-in-hand, it would be best to work with someone who does hair and makeup professionally.

6. Get your nails manicured

You should avoid having your nails manicured too early. If you do, your nails can break and the polish can chip off. The key is to not to leave time for your manicured nails to get damaged.

For your confidence, ensure that your nails look professionally trimmed and polished. After all, your hands will get a lot of attention on your wedding day.

7. Hire a wedding planner

Planning your wedding is more than just choosing the venue, cake, flowers, and giving out your invitations. That is why you should consider getting expert help. A wedding planner can take a lot of stress and weight of wedding planning off your shoulders. From scheduling and coordinating your special day to communicating with vendors like florist, videographer, photographer, and venue, a wedding specialist is your best partner in making your dream wedding a reality.


This way, you can have enough time to prepare yourself for your wedding and deal with other important matters. You will look more relaxed and radiant on the day if you have faced less stress during the preparations.

Your wedding photos will last forever. So make sure that you look best on your wedding day by implementing these bridal beauty tips. Most importantly, don’t hesitate to invest in a complete wedding package!
