* Wedding Day Preparation

Your Wedding Day is one of the most important days of your life

Preparing the ultimate Wedding Day takes months of planning and effort.

Be sure to look beautiful and feel your best on your wedding day…

The first step to an assured wedding day resulting in total fulfillment is to write a plan, the second step is to stick to it!

A bride should look her definitive best on her wedding day. All eyes are automatically drawn to her to see what she is wearing and how she has been made up.

It is a must for her to radiate confidence and to look exceptional. To do this, a bride must prepare herself by setting up a beauty plan to accentuate her natural good looks and improve on those aspects that may need a little help.

The Bridal Gown

A bride’s dream dress is what she should wear. Some brides-to-be may need to loose a few inches or tone up to fit their ideal picture of their fantasy wedding. This weighty issue can seem to be a difficult task to accomplish, especially at such a stressful time.  The key can lie in treatments that assist in loosing excess fat and toning muscle, especially when you plan with a professional.  

The Bride’s Make-Up

Highlight the look with blemish free, soft glowing skin. If you have some facial problems that include acne, acne scars, dehydration or fine lines and wrinkles, there is a solution and it is the right time to have the best complexion to suit the occasion. Complementing your glowing complexion, the make-up choices you will make will complete your total look.  A professional make-up artist will choose make-up that will be both camera-ready and natural looking while adding a hint of your favourite colours.

The Ring

Don’t forget that your hands will also be the focus of attention when showing off your stunning new ring. A professional manicure and nourishing hand treatment will encourage you to show them off with pride.

Remember that preparing yourself to radiate and look your absolute best on your wedding day does not only take the few hours of the morning of your wedding day.  The key is not to leave it to the last minute as some of these problems do take some time to solve.

So do not wait!  Start your beauty regime now for one of the most important days of your life! For complete advice on wedding day beauty preparations or a free make-up trial call us now or just visit the salon.
