As a bride, there are so many items on your checklist that you will want to cross out the month leading up to the wedding but in preparation for the 30-day countdown, let’s make our own list so that you can stay on track with your self-love prior to the big day!
Here are our top ten things to make sure you check off your list:
Exfoliate and brighten up that face
You want to make sure you are GLOWING on your wedding day. This is not something you want to start on the week of the wedding. Begin your face care practice well in advance so you know exactly what your skin can take. The last thing you will want walking down the aisle is a breakout or big red rash! Consult with your aesthetician for the best plan for you!
Paws and Claws
Head to the salon or pick out a few of your top color picks! Give yourself some time to wear the color before you commit to the wedding. Once you decide, get those paws and claws done days before.
To Tan or Not to Tan!
Your wedding week isn’t the time to get a spray tan for the first time, ever. If you are wanting that tan look for your wedding day, look into getting one prior to gauge if it’s a yes or a no.
Pamper Those Pearly Whites
I say this word just like my daughter, big smile and all pearls showing. NOTHING is worse than getting pictures and your teeth are looking a little yellow. This is not just for the ladies but for the hubs to be as well. Make an appointment with your dentist to get a quick clean up and whitening or make a pact to complete those crest white strips. A little effort goes a LONNNGGGG way here.
Full believers over here of a smooth forehead and no lines. Botox takes at least 5 days to kick in fully. If you have a regimen already started, contact your specialist and see if you can get in early to make sure your wrinkles are no more. If this is your first time, give yourself time! 30 days in advance is perfect.
Get Those Hair Color Touch Ups
Only you know how fast your hair grows and if you have an extreme amount of color growth, it’s probably the time to get things figured out. Highlights or retouches, they are so important – do this about 7-10 days out.
Now, this isn’t something that is new to people. If you haven’t really been following a plan during the months leading up to the big day, make sure you figure this out 30 days in advance. Don’t hold back, eat what you want but at the same time, keep it in moderation. The goal is not to starve yourself, the goal is to feel good, right? Good food makes you feel good–Promise!
1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and get them sit ups right and . . . move ya body! Get in the gym, go out for a walk, take a hike, swim, bike, etc. You don’t need to have long sessions, 30 minutes is great but a little goes a long way in feeling sexy. We have a workout plan you can download if you’re looking for some gym workouts. You can find our program here! Here’s a tip. Do it with your bridesmaids, they’ll love it!
Get Some Sleep
7-8 hours of sleep per night is known for many things; controls hunger, it helps your immune system’s functionality, and memory retention just to name a few. All of these being important for your wedding day. Set schedules, get a new pillow if you need, cool down that bedroom and get those hours in!
1. Helps prevent hangovers
2. Helps with weight loss
3. Increases energy levels
4. Helps maximize physical performance 😉
