Summer is full of incredible occasions such as weddings and it is important to select something amazing to wear, but it is not the only thing we need to ensure we think of in the lead up. Whether you are the bride, bridesmaid, part of the wedding party or a guest preparing for this big event is important for everyone to ensure you are looking your very best.
Picking the perfect outfit
If you are a wedding guest one of your biggest decisions will be what you are going to wear. There are a number of do’s and don’ts when it comes to your dress as a wedding guest, but a good option is either a bright blocked color dress or something colorful or floral. It is a good idea to avoid a dress in white, ivory or cream.
Take time over your skincare
In the build up to the wedding the time taken over your skincare will be well worth it come the big day. The best way to keep your skin looking bright and fresh you will want to ensure you cleanse, tone and moisturise.
Trial your make up ahead of time
Weddings are often day long events and you will want to ensure your make up lasts for the duration of the day while also ensuring that you do not have to worry about how it will show up in the photography. You will want to select a good primer to keep your make up in place all day and if you want to look great in any flash photography you will want to avoid any foundation with SPF in as this can cause ‘ghosting’ or ‘white out’ where your face will end up looking lighter and almost white in reaction to the flash.
In the lead up to the wedding you will want to keep your nutrition right on track as this will especially help you to maintain a clear complexion and brilliant skin tone. Nutrition is important in everyday life and water is a brilliant way to help keep your skin and complexion clear, and you will need to ensure you are drinking a couple of litres every day.
Accessorize, Accessorize, Accessorize!
If you are the bride preparing for her big day then there are a number of accessories you might want to consider for yourself. If your hairstyle suits one you might want to pick up a sparkly headband or hair clip or maybe even a diamante tiara. Accessories-wise a dainty bracelet, similarly dainty bangle and a beautiful necklace are all must haves to set off your beautiful gown. If you are looking for a little bling on your gown you can always add a diamante effect belt, with either diamante’s all the way round or a motif on the front. If you are a wedding guest, you might want to accessorize with a beautiful fascinator to match your outfit.
