Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, one you've been dreaming about since you were a little girl. Whether your wedding is a casual affair on the beach or a formal occasion with hundreds of guests, you want to feel both beautiful and comfortable on your special day.
Before you can develop the rest of your look, you have to find the perfect dress. Your makeup, hairstyle and accessories all need to coordinate with your dress, so choose your gown as far in advance of the ceremony as possible. Finding a dress that meets your needs without exceeding your budget is not always easy, but don't feel like you have to settle for something you don't love. Instead, keep visiting different stores until you find your dream dress.
Between the preparation, ceremony and reception, your wedding day will likely be very long. You want to feel as beautiful at the end of the night as you did when you were walking down the aisle, and this requires careful planning. Traditional makeup can fade quickly, so consider the advantages of airbrush makeup. This innovative technique helps makeup appear more natural while providing a beautiful look that will last until the last dance.
In addition, it's important to choose a hairstyle that will last all day. After your look is perfected, set it with plenty of hairspray. If you choose to wear your hair down, keep in mind that touch-ups might be needed throughout the day. Some brides add variety to their look by changing hairstyles between the ceremony and reception. Maybe you want your hair to be long and flowing for the ceremony, but an updo is a great choice for your active reception. If you want to change your hair during the day, be sure that your hairstylist is handy and aware of your plans.
With a little extra foresight, you can ensure that you look and feel beautiful during every moment of your wedding day. Once you receive your photos, you'll be glad you chose styles that were both comfortable and flattering.
