Top Tips: Feel fab on your wedding day
So, your wedding is a few months away, you’ve bought your dress, organized the venue and everything is finalised, except one small detail, you.
The planning has taken its toll and you’ve been left feeling super stressed and lethargic. You might have also eaten too many of the wrong things lately and are worried that your dress may be a little more snug than you’d like. Not to worry. Here are 7 top tips to get you on your way to feeling fab on your wedding day!
Drink lots of water
This sounds simple, but will work wonders for your skin; especially if you want the minimal makeup look on your wedding day. So drink away and let your perfect skin shine through!
Limit processed foods where possible
All those cakes, crisps & processed meats are heavenly when going in your mouth but can wreak havoc with your insides and make you feel lethargic and bloated. Stick to all the colours of the rainbow veggie wise, lean meats and fruits and you will feel on top form for your wedding day.
Cut your Alcohol intake
I know I know! Sometimes it’s easier said than done, especially with all the stresses of planning your wedding. However, if you do enjoy an alcoholic beverage, cutting back will really help you reduce bloating for the big day. Also, try and switch to spirits instead of wine,lager or cider, as they’re lower in calories and won’t bloat you as much. Cutting back your alcohol intake will also help you fit better into that dress and make you feel a million dollars.
Start a Skincare Routine
If you already do this, fab. If not, don’t worry. You don’t have to spend ridiculous amounts of money, just make sure at the end of each day, you wipe your face clean of all makeup and moisturise before bed. Your skin will thank you. Closer to your wedding day, try and go a few days without makeup to allow your skin to breathe and to clear up any blemishes. then you can really sparkle when it counts.
You knew this one was coming. Start walking or if you’re feeling super energetic, join a gym or find an exercise you enjoy. That’s the most important part because if you don’t enjoy it, you won’t stick to it. Set yourself a goal, whether it’s to lose a certain amount of weight or whether you have problem areas you’d like to work on ready for your big day and plan to exercise a few times a week. If you find you’re not managing 2/3 times a week, look at why. There’s always time for exercise, even if it means walking to the shop, instead of driving. Remember, every little helps!
Get an early night
This may get harder closer to the date, but try and sleep as much as you can. There’d be nothing worse than waking up on your wedding day absolutely exhausted with bags under your eyes because you’ve tried to burn the candle at both ends and failed. You need time for you, to make sure you feel 100% on the big day. So, sleep like an angel and make sure your bedroom is a relaxation haven to give you the best quality sleep possible.
In the run up to the day, you’ll probably be feeling stressed and in need of relaxation. Run a bath and put your favourite bubble bath in, throw in a bath bomb, light a candle, grab a glass of wine, put some music on and relax. You can even read if that’s your sort of thing. Paint your nails and apply a face mask. Have an all-out pamper session. Invite a few friends over if you like or simply have some YOU time.
These tips should get you well on your way to feeling fantastic on your wedding day.
Just remember, try not to stress and enjoy working towards feeling fab!
