October 4, 2018

Today's guest post is all about wedding prep! But honestly these tips would work for any big event you have coming up. 

Getting married can be one of the greatest adventures that you decide to embark on. This is because it’s a lifelong commitment that is likely to be full of surprises, twists, and turns. In light of this, ensuring that your big day turns out as close to perfect as possible is key. It’s going to be a day you remember for years to come, so you want to look back and be happy with the outcome of your day. In light of this, you’re going to find three key ways to prep for your big day in the following article.

Plan Ahead
Somewhere in the world right now, a bride is likely frantic and panicking because her big day is a few hours away and she left some key things until the last minute. In light of this, you should try and plan as far ahead as possible to ensure you aren’t missing out on key moments because you’re stressed. Devising a wedding planning timeline often goes a long way as it helps you stay on top of things and tick off boxes like the guest list, food, venue, entertainment, and others as you go along. Also, don’t be afraid to accept or ask for help because you can’t do everything on your own.

Take Care of Your Skin
One of the things that most people look forward to seeing at a wedding is the bride. For this reason, you should try and ensure that you take care of your skin so that you have a stunning glow on the day. Here is a skincare routine that may be worth trying below.

Cleanse - Seeing as your skin is likely to pick up oil and sweat overnight, it’s a good idea to cleanse first thing in the morning. You could decide to wash your face using your hands or motorized oscillating brushes that help remove dirt from pores. Be sure to cleanse with a good facial wash that’s suitable for your skin type.

Moisturize With SPF - Hydration and protection are vital for glowing skin, so moisturizing with SPF is another element to add to your routine. It could help both keep your skin replenished, protect it from the sun and help add a glow as well.

Use Eye Cream - The last thing that you want on your big day is to find that you have tired eyes. For this reason, you should include the use of a good firming eye cream in your skincare routine. This should help your eyes look a lot more rested when you’re walking down the aisle.

Remember to start your new routine as early as possible and avoid trying new products close to your big day just in case of any allergic reactions.

As mentioned above, sometimes you get so lost in preparing for your wedding that you forget to enjoy every moment. Seeing as you’ll hopefully only get married once, try and relax and enjoy the ride. One of the ways that you can relax before your big day is by going to the spa and getting pampered as well as treatments. You should also look into getting the right facials and exfoliating your skin to help you feel as refreshed as possible.
Getting married is a day that many women often dream of. To ensure that your dreams are close enough to your reality, it’s imperative that you put in enough work behind the scenes. As mentioned above, this often means ensuring you are mentally and physically prepare for the many things to come. By doing so, you should find that your big day is nothing short of magical.
