If you are getting married in 2022, there is a lot that needs to be considered. Not only do you need to sort out the guest list but you need to think about what you are going to be wearing, how you are going to have your hair, your make-up for the day, and so on.
When it comes to the glam side of getting married, it can feel quite overwhelming. After all, you want to make sure that you look your best. All eyes are going to be on you, and we’re sure you do not intend on getting married again in the future, so you want to make sure that you look your very best.
There is no need to panic, though, as we are here to help you with that. Below, we are going to provide you with all of the wedding glam information that you could possibly need in order to look and feel your best on your wedding day, just like you deserve!
Beauty hazards you must avoid in the weeks building up to your wedding
We are going to start off by taking a look at some of the things you should not do in the weeks building up to your wedding. For example, we definitely would not recommend that you change your hair to a completely new colour altogether. This is never a wise idea. You may not like the outcome, or the colour may not take to your hair in the way you had hoped. Yes, use the best products for shiny hair so your hair looks amazing but think twice before you completely change your look.
We also do not advise you to get your first ever wax in the months prior to your wedding. If you usually shave or use hair removal cream, for instance, getting your first wax before your special is not a wise idea. This is simply because you may have a reaction to it, causing your skin to appear red and lumpy. In fact, this applies to any sort of facial treatment, such as a chemical peel. If you have never tried the treatment in question before, we would advise having it done considerably in advance of your wedding as a trial run so you can see how your skin reacts.
We would also recommend that you try to limit your consumption of salt considerably in the build-up to your wedding. While this may seem like odd advice, there is a reason for it. Sodium can hold as much as 50x times its weight when it is in water. Therefore, you can shed some pounds and reduce any bloatedness you are feeling by limiting your salt intake. Plus, did you know that salt can also make your face look swollen?
Beauty hazards to avoid on your wedding day
Now that we have covered the time period leading up to your big day, we are going to focus on the day itself. You want everything to go as smoothly as possible, which is why preparation is key. We always recommend a make-up trial run so that you do not feel stressed or unhappy on your wedding morning.
It is also advisable to avoid getting a spray tan on the evening before your wedding. You do not want to have orange marks on your dress.
Another error we see a lot of people make is that they do their nails too early. You should try to leave your nails to a day or two before the wedding. If you get them done considerably in advance, they can end up getting chipped at the last moment.
There are also certain foods that can cause you to have a breakout. Chocolate is a prime example. While it may be tempting to have a chocolate bar because you are feeling stressed and worn out, it is important to think about your skin and the impact it could have.
Spend some time researching different wedding hair and makeup looks online
In addition to the mistakes that you need to avoid and the other pieces of advice that we have provided above, it is important to make sure you spend some time understanding what you really want from your hair and makeup on your wedding day. There are so many options available so it is really about considering what is going to fit in with the theme, what suits you, and ultimately, what you like!
The great thing about social media today is that it has made it easier than ever before to find great wedding hair and beauty suggestions. Pinterest and Instagram are great for this. You will also find some useful content on YouTube too. When you are assessing all of the different wedding looks, it is important to think about what they would look like on you, the style of dress you are wearing, and the look of the venue as a whole. After all, you want to make sure that everything ties together perfectly.
Make sure you book a hair and makeup trial
Most people book a professional hairdresser and makeup artist to handle their glam on their wedding morning. We recommend doing this so that you can sit back and enjoy yourself while someone else ensures you look your best.
However, you should not leave it until the wedding day to discover whether or not you like the hair stylist and makeup artist in question. This is what wedding beauty trials are for. This gives you the ability to trial different looks so that you can decide on the best one for your special day. Moreover, if for some reason you do not like the hair stylist or wedding makeup artist in question, you will have plenty of time to find a different glam squad instead. After all, you should not have to compromise on your wedding day.
Still, it is vital to recognise that a trial is exactly that; a trial! Do not get upset or worried if you do not like the first hairstyle or makeup suggestion that is mentioned. Remember, the beautician and hair stylist are using this opportunity to get to know you as well so that they can determine what sort of look you want and get onto the same page as you ahead of your big day.
When you are looking for the ideal glam squad for your wedding day, make sure you take a look at images from brides they have beautified in the past. This will help you to get an idea of what to expect and whether or not their looks fit in with what you had in mind. It is also a good idea to take the time to read reviews that have been left by other people as well. After all, you want to make sure that the person in question is professional, friendly, and that they will arrive on time on your big day.
Final words on your wedding glam
So there you have it: everything you need to know about getting your wedding glam right. We hope that the tips and advice that we have provided you with above will help you when it comes to looking your very best on your wedding day. While you can go down the traditional route or look online for inspiration, it is important to remember that your wedding is all about you, and so it is vital to be true to yourself.
