Are you feeling a bit overwhelmed by wedding plans? Take some of the focus off those details and put it on yourself. Yes, planning weddings and other events gets a bit crazy and we feel neglected- so change that. Putting that focus back on you is a great way to tame those bridezilla flare ups! We make charts and to do lists for our events but let’s make one for us! Take some time and sit down and figure out how you want to look on your wedding day! Do you want to be more tone? Put it on your list! Would you like more jewelry? Put it on your list! Then for every item you take off your master to do list- treat yourself to something off of your To Me List!
Let’s talk about your hair first! It is important to know the condition of your hair at all times, but when it comes to your special day you want to be able to look your best. Talk to your stylist about deep conditioning, highlights, trims and all of that. Start this process at least 60 days before your wedding. Do not make any drastic changes to your look during those 60 days. It is important not to get buyer’s remorse during this time. Just maintain the look you have. You want to make sure you do a trial run so that you know what you are getting the day of your wedding. Also let’s not neglect those grooms- get the guys in for haircuts! We want them looking fabulous as well.
Skin Care is essential during this time too. Make sure you are following your skin care regimen. I also want to insert in here that if you are tanning make sure you speak with your salon about the overall look you are trying to achieve- nothing is worse than showing up to your wedding looking like a Dorito! You want to make sure you have no tan lines visible, that your skin looks great and that YOU GLOW!
Ladies, where does that ring go? You know everyone is going to be asking to see the set now that it is complete. Set up a time for a nice manicure and pedicure. You can bring your bridal party with you or just have some me time. You will feel great afterwards and be ready to face anything. Some places will even allow you to have a nice glass of wine while you get this done! Feel polished and refreshed!
Need to get tone? There are some great programs out there for brides and grooms who want to look fierce and fit for their weddings. You can check out a local Bridal Boot Camp program or even check out ZUMBA! These classes not only get you in shape but also give you a great way to release some stress. If you are looking for just a stress buster try out yoga or Pilates for a low impact workout. The key here is not busting butt in the last two months before your wedding to lose 80 lbs its to make you feel good. So do not stress out about goal weights. Also make sure that you speak with your seamstress about any alterations that need to be done due to your toning!
The last two months before a wedding can be stressful so make sure to take time for you too. It’s not going to do you any good to have planned a beautiful wedding and then show up frazzled. So, take some time and make your YOU list. Do things for you and take time to enjoy this process. If you need a list of local businesses that I recommend for these services please let me know!
