Whether you grew up thinking about your wedding or the thought of being a bride is fairly new for you, universally brides want to feel beautiful on their wedding day. Whether it’s the big reveal or the long-lasting photos that make you want to feel as beautiful as ever, here are a few tips for feeling beautiful as a bride.
Prioritize your sleep
Let’s face it; wedding planning can be stressful and anxiety-inducing, especially the week leading up to the wedding. Between finalizing the last details, handling RSVPs, and solving any last-minute issues that arise, getting a good night’s sleep can fall to the way-side. However, you must prioritize your sleep. Not only will good quality sleep help you look your best, but it will also improve your emotional and social interactions. Feeling beautiful starts on the inside, so start off on the right foot with a proper sleep schedule.
Get your nutrition on track
Implementing crash dieting or severe fitness programs leading up to the wedding may sound good in theory, but you don’t need all those bells and whistles to feel beautiful as a bride. However, your nutrition must be on track. Start by drinking plenty of water leading up to and on your wedding day. Staying hydrated will keep your body functioning properly, your skin looking healthy, and prevent dry mouth and lips. Drinking enough water also helps detox your body and decrease salt retention. You will also want to make sure you are eating plenty of fruits and vegetables as well. Fruits and vegetables are an integral part of a healthy diet and will help you maintain a healthy gut. This will ensure that you don’t have any digestion or constipation problems on your wedding day.
Don’t forget your mental health
While many brides and brides-to-be know to prioritize their physical well being, few do the same for their mental health. However, the reality is that most engaged couples will experience some form of post-engagement anxiety or wedding planning related anxiety before their big day. Therefore, when creating your wedding planning to-do list, don’t forget to throw in some mental health-related tasks as well. Maybe that means a monthly therapy session, a massage date with your soon-to-be-spouse, or just a simple detox day that focuses on unplugging and reconnecting. Whatever tactic you choose for your mental health, make sure to prioritize it like you would any other wedding-related task.
Focus on what makes you feel beautiful
Between bridesmaids, family, friends, and social media, it can be hard to drown out the noise of never-ending opinions (even if they all mean well). However, going with the dress that your mother-in-law wanted or the make-up look that your stylist recommended instead of what you really want, may not leave you feeling truly beautiful on your wedding day. Part of what makes you beautiful is all of the things that make you unique, so don’t lose that on your wedding day. It can be hard, but sticking to your gut is important and will make you feel confident and truly “you” on your wedding day.
