Wedding make-up can be a minefield – there are so many factors to consider and all eyes will be on you, so you want everything to look perfect. But planning a wedding is stressful as it is, and if you’ve just started thinking about your make-up, we can imagine you must have questions. So to […]
Whether you’re part of the bridal party or a well-wishing guest, weddings require some serious beauty prep to guarantee an aisle-worthy glow.
The lead up to a wedding can be a stressful time and lead you to experiencing a number of feelings, from excitement and butterflies, to anxiety, stress and fatigue. So it’s all the more reason to take extra care of yourself, to offset the effects of all those stress hormones and focus on eating the right foods and caring for your hair and skin. Moisturising, nourishing and calming products are key.
You should also take supplements at least a month in the lead up to your wedding, particularly ones containing a mix of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. These deliver all the nutrients your skin needs for boosting collagen. Besides your skincare routine, an improved sleep schedule is also important for skin renewal. But if you’ve been up all night before the big day, with pre-wedding nerves fear not! Just run some ice cubes over your skin to de-puff and tighten pores, while reducing fatigue. A hydrating and brightening serum and primer will also be your best friends when it comes to achieving complexion perfection.
When it comes to wedding hair and makeup – focus on styles and colours that you’re most comfortable with and feel most like “you” – this is not the time to start trialling and testing a new beauty look! Plus you don’t want to look back on your wedding photos and not recognise the woman staring back at you. You should instead aim for a slightly elevated version of your signature hair and makeup look, to ensure you stay within your comfort zone and feel relaxed and happy for your big day.

For example, ever thought of having a donut wall? It’s a must if you want loved ones to get snapping and sharing to Instagram all night long. While guests will enjoy tucking into these tasty treats, they’ll also get posing — because what’s more social media-friendly than a wall full of colourful confectionary?
And what about bespoke cocktails for the happy couple? Hire a mixologist who can concoct your very own drink, with ingredients that reflect your tastes and happy memories. Coming up with a name is the best part! And to say a special thank you to your bridesmaids, personalised hangers and champagne glasses are a lovely gesture (and ensure everyone knows whose glass is whose).
How about getting a musician to compose your own song for the first dance? Custom cake toppers, such as marzipan ‘mini mes’ of you both are also super fun and cute. Or why not go down the savoury route with a wedding cheese wheel? The options to personalise your perfect day are endless. Read through our articles for more inspiration and ideas…
