Welcome back!

The previous week we talked about the initial days of a bride-to-be’s life; how and when she should get started with her bridal beauty regime. We hope you have been keeping yourself aligned with our ‘The Bridal Beauty Countdown: 6 Months to Go! ‘guide. Now, we here want to keep you prepared well ahead of time and so, we’re back with another quick bridal guide.

3 Months more and you’ll be walking down the aisle! Aren’t you excited and nervous at the same time? The countdown has begun and the time is going to swoop by faster than you ever imagined. Relax, we have you covered.

Tick-Tock: The Clock’s Running (Things to do 3 Months before Tying the Knot)

  1. Fit the Gown: Yes, three months is the right time to make sure your wedding gown fots. A bride must go to any bounds to shop for her D-day attire. Why only 3 months in advance? Well, because we think you should fit the dress once you have started getting into shape. This way you will be able to avoid any measurement and fitting issues last minute!
  2. At the Gym, Mark Your Target Areas: In our previous list, we suggested you to hit the gym six months in advance. After three months of overall workout and getting in shape, your next move should be to work on the specific target areas. If your wedding gown bares the shoulders or back, do the exercises that help you shed off any extra fat from the target areas.
  3. Finalise Your D-Day Look: Now that you have tried out all the good hair dressers, make-up artists and have also, hired the best one, the next thing to do is to sit down with them and work on the final look. A look test is something that you can go for. Visit your make-up artist and hair dresser three months prior to the wedding to discuss your final look with them. The make-up should go with your skin tone, texture and also the attire you are planning to adorn. Visit the hair dresser with the pictures of veil and hairstyles that you like. He’ll suggest the best one for you!
  4. Work on Those Brows: You might be missing out on this! Visit a specialist who can help in reshaping the brows and make you look more attractive. If your brows are over plucked, they will require time to grow and so turning your attention to them three months in advance is the right thing to do. Also, you can hire an aesthetician and go for tweezing in every three weeks.
  5. Make Your Pucker Pink and Perfect: The nuptial knot is incomplete until you seal it with a kiss and so, it is important for the bride to make her lips soft, luscious and kissable. Ayurveda can come to your aid. If smoking and tanning have left your kissers dark and chapped, try on some Ayurvedic lip balms like Kokum Butter Lip Balm. It is a natural and effective lip product.
  6. Get Rid of Those Tan Lines: Has the summer left its mark on skin in the form of tan lines? Keep the neckline of your wedding gown in mind and if it shows off any tan lines, work on them. Opt for a good exfoliation session and skin treatment to attain an even skin tone; even make-up can do the trick right!
  7. Hair Care: Colour them, straighten them or curl up; take care of your strands. Use Ayurvedic potions and try out hairstyles, products three months before the wedding.

Now that you have been 7 simple tips at your altar, the wedding jitters shouldn’t trouble you. Just pay attention to yourself and your wellbeing. Pamper yourself and your beauty will take everyone’s breath away when the final day arrives.

"Bride: A woman with a fine prospect of happiness behind her. -Ambrose Bierce"

Could not have been a better way to define a bride!  Weddings are beautiful. They bring happiness to the lives of a couple and to those who are closely associated with them; most importantly to a bride-to-be’s life. It marks the beginning to a companionship and joy that will last a lifetime. Consequently, preparing for the wedding day is often seen as a quest in itself. And why not? The day you step into a brand new life; it is bound to be special and memorable.

Every girl wants things to go well; the venue should be fancy, the arrangements should be wonderful, the wedding dress has to be stupendous and she must look picture-perfect – that is all a girl wants. And so, 6 months prior to the wedding is an exciting yet overwhelming time for the bride-to-be. The pre-wedding jitters can take a toll on how she looks on the D-day. Here is how you can stay away from all the heebie-jeebies and strike a flawless appearance while walking down the aisle. We have a complete The Bridal Beauty Countdown Series coming up for you! Make sure you keep watching this space and here is your first one!

Engage! 6 Months Until the D-Day: Getting Started

  1. Hit the Gym: Ditch that beanbag and move. If you want your wedding dress to fit perfectly, make sure you hit the gym without much ado. Follow a workout regime and be honest with it. You can even hire a personal trainer if need be!
  2.  Clean Out Your Diet: This is an important step that you must follow. In order to flaunt a flawless skin and look beautiful, it is necessary that you watch what you eat. Completely cut down the intake of junk, oily and spicy food. Include more organic and raw food in your diet. Also, do not forget to gulp down atleast 6 to 7 glasses of water each day. Make this your routine and you will be amazed how radiant and beautiful you will look 6 months down the line.
  3. Know Your Skin Type and Work on It: Before you start up a skincare regime, make sure you know your skin type. You can turn to ayurveda as well. Many girls are taking aid from this ancient medicinal system to prep their skin for the D-day. According to Ayurveda, the skin types are classified into three: Kapha, Pitta and Vata. Figure out which one you have and opt for a regime that suits you the best. Do not miss out Scentrelle here! You can pick our Body Dew Oil for Sensitive, Oily and Dry Skin. Also, try out new facials and fruit peels to know which one you should opt. Find out your dosha/skin type here.
  4. Do not Forget Manicures, Pedicures & Spas: Your body needs to relax and so, schedule regular spa sessions. Also, keep your hands and feet happy by getting manicures and pedicures on time.
  5. Hire a Makeup Artist & Hairstylist: Never go late on this one! Take Trial sessions from a couple of stylists and then pick the best one of all. Make sure you book them 6 months in advance, in order to avoid any last minute fiasco.
  6. Laser Treatments: If you plan to get a laser hair removal treatment, now is the right time. Always go for such treatments 6 months in advance so that you have enough time to see how your skin responds to the therapy.
  7. De-Stress: Stay calm and look beautiful, that is the one mantra, which you will need to walk on every day for these 6 months. The only way you will be able to look beautiful and make your man go weak in the knees is by staying calm and keeping stress at bay. Go for some meditation sessions, do yoga and anything that it takes you to keep your head cool. Stress can ruin your skin by giving you last minute breakouts and nasty scars.
