Every bride wants to look her very best on her wedding day, and it is never too soon to start planning your bridal beauty for your wedding day. I have put together a 6 month beauty routine to have you looking your sparkling best on your big day.
6 Months To Go
Take a long critical look at yourself in the mirror and if you feel you could loose a few pounds, now is the time to start. Decide on the most suitable plan according to your daily schedule, whether it be simply cutting down on between snacks or a rigorous routine of diet and exercise. A healthy balanced diet is important not only for the body beautiful but will also benefit your skin, hair and nails.
Having set the date you will be ready to choose your wedding dress and deciding on the style most flattering to you is very important. Do not be over-influenced by the latest fashions; what looks great on a model in a glossy magazine could end up making you look like an over dressed. Whether you decide to buy, hire or have your dress specially made, seek expert advice of the person you approach who will have a great deal of experience, in dressing brides, and take along a good friend who is not going to tell you what they think you want to hear, but be kindly critical.
