How To Feel Your Best On The Big Day

It’s finally happened! You’re out on a romantic date, vacation, or a walk through your favorite park and your significant other gets down on one knee and pops the big question; “Will you marry me?” For most people, after the initial excitement comes a wave of stress. There’s so much to consider with floral arrangements, dress fittings, and guest accommodations the smaller yet still important aspects of wedding preparation fall on the back burner. I’m not talking about RSVP cards either. Here’s a few tips for both you and your groom to follow to ensure you’re feeling your best on the big day.

Make sure you’re drinking at least 8 cups of water a day. This seems simple but the majority of people don’t do this on a daily basis. Staying hydrated will do wonders for your skin.







Regulate your diet and fitness routine. Not only will you look stunning in your dress, you’ll feel great mentally.







Take time to meet up with your makeup artists well in advance. You want to know exactly what’s going on your face before the day of your wedding.







Ramp up your skincare routine. Don’t be afraid to splurge professional facials. Experienced facialists will massage your skin and decolletage to enhance blood circulation to keep your skin looking healthy.







For all the grooms out there. If needed, start using products to treat thinning hair. There’s also plenty of styling options to maximize your hair volume. (talk about a confidence booster)







Go to a final dress and Tuxedo fitting. You’ve both been working hard and eating right, so you’ve probably dropped some pounds.









Lastly, Take time to relax. Stress never does the body any good. Don’t be afraid to have a girls/guys night. Go to your favorite spa or golf course.









Plan ahead, and don’t stress! This is one of the happiest days of your lives. Take time to enjoy yourselves and company of friends, and family.
