What Brides Usually Do Before The Big Day

As I prepare for my wedding day, a moment I’ve dreamed about for years, I’ve realized that the journey to the altar involves much more than choosing a dress and picking a venue. It’s also about personal preparations and indulgences that ensure I look and feel my absolute best on this special day. Here’s a glimpse into the essential pre-wedding rituals that have become a significant part of my bridal journey.

1. Spa Days

One of the most cherished rituals in my wedding preparation has been regular visits to the spa. These aren’t just about relaxation; they’re a holistic approach to rejuvenation. I started with monthly sessions about six months before the wedding, focusing on treatments like body scrubs, which exfoliate my skin to a silky perfection. The goal is radiant skin as I walk down the aisle.

2. Cosmetic Enhancements

Wanting to look flawless on my wedding day, I decided to explore some cosmetic enhancements. After careful consideration and consultations with professionals, I opted for a few subtle treatments. I had a light session of Botox to smooth out fine lines and a bit of neurotoxins and filler under my eyes to banish the chronic fatigue look. Next time, I might try out other procedures like a facelift.

3. Hair and Makeup Trials

Choosing the right hairstyle and makeup look for my wedding day was crucial. I scheduled trials with my hair and makeup artists to experiment with different styles. These sessions were not only fun but also reassuring, as they helped me visualize my final look and make necessary adjustments ahead of time. It’s all about finding that perfect balance that complements both my dress and the wedding’s overall aesthetics.

4. Manicure and Pedicure

A few days before the wedding, I scheduled a manicure and pedicure appointment. Opting for a classic French tip on my nails adds a touch of elegance without overshadowing my wedding band and engagement ring. Soft, pampered feet are just as important, especially when I think about the long hours I’ll spend on them.

5. Diet and Exercise

While I didn’t embark on any drastic diets, I did focus on eating well and staying active, which helped me manage stress and feel energized. Keeping meals balanced and maintaining my regular yoga sessions contributed significantly to my overall well-being.

Each of these steps has not only prepared me for my big day but also provided me with moments of reflection and anticipation. As I count down to my wedding, these rituals remind me to cherish the process, making the journey just as memorable as the destination.
