1. Don’t Tan. 

You don’t want to get too dark for your special day; it can look unnatural in your photos. Especially if it’s a spray tan gone wrong. Not too mention that you are putting yourself at risk of skin damage. Having a bad tan is one of the worst looks, and it’s not fixable! Say no to the tan and go for a nice bronzer that will make your skin glow but still keep you looking natural.

2. Don’t drink wine or eat dark-colored foods like berries.  

You should try to avoid foods that can tint your pearly whites because no one wants a stained smile captured in their wedding photos! To get them nice and pearly, invest in a professional teeth-whitening service. On a budget? Try your local drug store for something like Crest Whitestrips. What ever whitening regimen you are going to use, start about one month before the wedding.

3. Don’t ingest excess sodium the week before the wedding.  

That means no salty foods, sauces, dressings, or salty deli meats. Instead, go for the no or low sodium foods at least seven days before the wedding. “Sodium holds 50 times its weight in water, so you can shed two to five pounds the week before the wedding just by doing this!” says Liz DiAlto of Fit, Healthy and Beautiful in New York City.

4. Don’t skimp on water! 

To keep your skin clear and glowing, double up on your intake of water. It’s best to start doing this one-month prior to your wedding day. If you drink any alcohol or have wine for all of your pre-wedding parties, try to switch off between drinking alcohol and a glass of water.

5. Don’t forget your beauty emergency kit  

Include different sized safety pins, double sided sticky tape, a small sewing kit, a pair of scissors, a bleach pen, bobby pins, hairspray, blotting papers, mints, a razor, deodorant, Band-Aids, tissues, nail polish remover, a nail clipper, makeup remover wipes, tampons, and anything else you might need. It’s always better to be prepared for what can go wrong to make sure that nothing ruins your day!  If you have a wedding planner, not to worry, every good wedding planner already as all this stuff, all you need to bring is some powder and lipstick 🙂

Here are just a few beauty don’ts to ensure that you look and feel amazing on your wedding day!

Happy Planning Everyone!
