Three "Do's" For Brides On Their Wedding Day
Hello our chic brides-to-be! We were thinking a bit about what information might be helpful for you as you start to prep for your big day. Once you've gotten the big, obvious things checked of your list - like shopping for a dress! - and your wedding date is getting closer there are a few tips to keep in mind that we've collected over 45 years of helping brides.
- Do - Try our your hair and makeup in advance. All brides, regardless of how clear a vision they have of their hair and makeup styles, should schedule a trial run with both the hairstylist and makeup artist who will be helping you make your vision a reality. If you are wearing any special headpiece or statement jewelry you should be sure to include them in your test. No one wants a surprise on their wedding day or to feel like they look any less than perfect - a trial run can help you iron out all the details that you might not have considered in advance.
- Do - Buy a signature fragrance and start wearing it the day of your wedding. If you've ever bought a new perfume on vacation you know how much pleasure it can bring you to remember walking on the beach or exploring the streets of Paris every time you put that scent on. A perfume that you tie to your wedding day will remind you every time you spritz it on of the sensory memories of that night.
- Do - Have an extra, more comfortable pair of shoes handy that are about the same height as your "real" shoes. The trend right now is to wear big, beautiful designer heels - which is stunning - in a photo. The reality is you won't want to fret over your aching feet on your wedding day, so come prepared with an extra pair that will still suit the dress' hem, but will comfortably keep you on the dance floor as long as you'd like.
