7 Beauty Tips for the Big Day!

It's the day you've been dreaming about for years, the day that's going to be immortalized in photo albums for years to come. It's no secret that you're going to want to absolute best on your wedding day. If you're big day is coming up soon, the team at WhereBridesGo.com invites you to try these fabulous beauty preparation tips for the big day. You're going to love them!


1. Get Lots Of Sleep The Week Before The Wedding
This sounds cliche and obvious, but it's importance cannot be underestimated. Lack of sleep is the fastest route to dark circles underneath the eyes, and that certainly isn't something you want for your wedding day. The week before the wedding tends to be one of the busiest, though, so try to work ahead with your preparations as much as possible.

2. Drink Plenty of Water
Nature's biggest beauty secret is out! Study after study has shown that drinking plenty of water for an extended period of time leads to an unbelievable impact on skin, complexion, and even weight loss. When they say "plenty," though, they definitely mean it - women who received the best results drank the standard 8 eight-ounce glasses every day, and then some. One woman even drank an entire gallon of water every day! 

3. Don't Wash Your Hair
This may seem counter-intuitive, but you'll be much better off if you don't wash your hair on your big day. Hair is more stubborn and will fight against hairspray much more stubbornly when it has been washed recently. By not washing your hair on your actual wedding day, your hair's natural oils will help it cooperate (and give it a natural, healthy shine).

4. Use Waterproof Mascara
Do it. Don't talk yourself out of it. Yes, it might be a little bit harder to remove, and no, you might not actually cry... but you might. And that 'might' is enough reason to use the waterproof mascara. There's nothing worse than spotting dark black streaks down your face in your wedding photos!

5. Set Your Makeup
Between kissing, crying, and getting cake shoved in your face, your makeup will be put to the ultimate test on your wedding day. There is no fool-proof method that will keep your makeup from smudging in all conditions, but there are things you can do to set your makeup that will make it last longer. This may sound odd, but hairspray actually works surprisingly well. Once your makeup is perfect, hold your breath and close your eyes while someone sprays hairspray all across your face. Your makeup won't be going anywhere!

6. Keep Your Nails Neutral
If there's ever a day when a woman's hands are a main focal point, it's her wedding day. From signing marriage contracts to showing off wedding rings, your hands will be a prominent focus of your wedding day. You'll want your nails to look great. We encourage you go to for a French manicure or a pale, neutral color to show off your hands. Bright colors come and go with unpredictable trends, but neutral colors will remain timeless.

7. Stay True To Yourself
It's not uncommon for women to want to go all out with their beauty preparation for big events - and weddings are certainly a prime opportunity! As the bride, though, we encourage you to keep your glamour look in line with your normal appearance. Beware of elaborate cat-eye makeup or crazy updos (unless these are standard looks for you). You want to have fun with your wedding look, but you also want to be able to recognize yourself when you look back on your wedding photos.

Above all, don't forget to relax and take deep breaths! Stress can be incredibly harsh on your body, so keeping your body loose is one of the best tips for maintaining a natural, healthy glow.

Military Weddings

You've decided to have a military wedding—complete with all the pomp and circumstance such a formal affair entails. Here some tips on planning the wedding of your dreams that still conforms to longstanding military tradition and protocol.

Wedding Attire
The main difference between a military wedding and a civilian wedding is that the bride and/or groom will be in uniform. An officer or enlisted personnel in the bridal party wears uniforms that comply with the formality of the wedding and seasonal uniform regulations. For commissioned officers, the evening or mess dress uniform is equivalent to the civilian black tie. Commissioned officers who elect to wear a sword or saber with their uniform should stand to the left of the bride so as to protect her from the blade.

For enlisted personnel, dress blues or Army greens should be worn. Remember, never wear a boutonnière with a military uniform. Military ribbons or medals are the only adornments permitted on the uniform.
