Expert Advice

Hair

Don’t do any major hair changes right before the wedding. It is okay to experiment a little bit, but don’t stray too far from your natural look. You don’t want to get your photos back and say, “That doesn’t even look like me!”

Makeup

You want makeup that will endure tears, heat and perspiration. Fake eyelashes are a great way to avoid
clumpy or runny mascara. Purchase the lipstick used at the salon for touch ups throughout the day.

Skincare

Start a good skincare regimen well in advance so your skin is the best it can possibly be for the big day.

Nails

Get a manicure, as friends and family will be admiring your ring and there will be photographs. A pedicure too, for open-toed shoes or for the honeymoon.

Waxing

Don’t try waxing for the first time the week of your wedding. Instead, have a couple sessions prior to the big week.

Dieting

Forego the crash diet. You may lose a few pounds initially, but by eating too little your body will break down muscle
and slow its metabolism, which makes weight control more difficult and decreases your energy at time when you need it most!

Working Out

Don’t obsess! Set realistic expectations for your body and give yourself enough time. The best results occur when
you start a consistent workout routine at least four to six months prior to the wedding.

Aches and Pains

Headaches, neckaches, and backaches can leave you feeling tired and worn down. Visit a chiropractor to find relief from these common yet irritating conditions and to make sure you’re in peak condition for the big day!
