Every detail counts when planning a wedding from the dress to the flowers, right down to your smile. Taking advantage of expert advice whenever possible can help ease the pressure of preparation.
Carley Roney, co-founder and editor-in-chief of The Knot (www.theknot.com), shares some tips to get you ready for your big day:
Eye do. Late nights and teary moments can take their toll on your eyes. If youre greeted by swollen, puffy lids and redness on the morning of your wedding, cover your eyes with hot tea bags and elevate your feet.
Lip service. Prep your pucker: Start by smoothing away cracks with a moisturizing lip balm. You can also exfoliate lips with a warm toothbrush. Keep in mind that certain shades of lipstick can accentuate stained or yellow teeth, so stick to soft pinks or natural-looking reds.
Hair dos. Consult a professional and choose a hairstyle that complements the shape of your face. Try it with your headpiece or veil in advance, and remember that your wedding day is not the time for a radical change.
Balancing act. Your face shape and veil must work together for your overall look. To balance the two, a good rule of thumb is opposites attract. For example, if your face is oblong, complement it with a bit of width by choosing a fuller veil. Likewise, you can help to narrow a rounder face with a veil that falls along the side of the face.
Dont forget... to take special care during the week prior to
your wedding. Eat right, drink plenty of water, avoid trying new products,
and get plenty of rest!
