Getting married is one of those things many of us have dreamt about since we were kids. It’s such an exciting moment when you propose to your partner or get proposed to, then set a definite wedding date.

Along with this excitement is the anxiety of preparing for the special day. Apart from securing the venue, guest list preparations and other arrangements, you also have to take care of yourself as you put things in order.

Everyone’s eyes will be on you as you walk down the aisle, and considering the number of photos you will grace, it’s no small matter. This means doing everything you can to look your best.

Here are some amazing beauty tips that you should consider before your wedding day arrives, just to make sure you kill it on your big day.

  1. Work on your diet

In order to look good on the outside, you have to watch what you eat and drink. For a period of time, you might have to give up your fizzy drinks, fatty foods and alcohol. These foods can cause breakouts and unhealthy weight gain which you don’t want.

If your goal is to gain some weight, consider healthy options, and the same idea should be applied if you want to lose some weight. This will ensure that you look your best on your special day.

  1. Hit the gym

Working out will help you feel and look better on your wedding day. If you give yourself enough time and start working out early, you’ll be able to boost your self-esteem and feel confident enough to walk down the aisle on your special day.

You will also be able to avoid instances of bursting zippers and ill-fitting suits or gowns which is disastrous and hilarious. This will not only benefit you on your wedding day, it will also benefit you in the long run.

  1. Get into a skincare regimen

This is also one of the most essential steps to looking your best on your wedding day. Getting into a routine early on will give you enough time to discover what works for your skin, and visit your dermatologist if the need arises.

Also, you should definitely avoid trying products that you have never tried before a few weeks to the wedding. This could easily turn into a disaster if your skin reacts.

  1. Don’t forget your teeth

As you work on your skin, remember to take care of your teeth as well. Your day will be full of smiles so you should probably prep your teeth for that day. Certain foods and drinks can stain your teeth over time so grab some teeth whitening products, such as charcoal toothpaste, to help those stains clear up. You should also consult your dentist beforehand to find out which products will suit you best.

  1. Organize hair and makeup early

Some common disasters that ruin weddings are bad hairstyles and makeup. There are many cases where makeup artists fail to show up on the day even after payments have been made. Ensure that you are prepared by booking early enough, doing test runs with the artists or even practising basic makeup skills just in case. Organizing this early enough will help you know which products will work best on you and avoid instances of runny makeup and uneven looks.
