Welcome to May (well, June really!) and the start of the wedding season! It’s not surprising since the weather is just perfect for an outdoor wedding and all those picture perfect settings. Whether you’re attending a wedding this summer as a guest, have the honourable task of being included in the wedding party or you’re getting married (congrats!), the thought of cramming multiple weddings, and the prep that goes with them, into your already overflowing schedule seems impossible. It can be done.
Disclosure: I have been compensated to share this post. The opinions on this blog are my own.
How do you enjoy a stress-free wedding season? Just follow these steps …
1) Don’t skip your beauty routine, but do skip the expensive waxing appointments. If you want to feel smooth and confident in your most leggy dress at the next wedding you attend, opt for home wax strips over a salon appointment or shaving. The NairTM WAX READY-STRIPS are ready-to-use, just peel and place, no rubbing or warming required. They remove hair from the roots and last for up to 4 weeks.
2) Feel good, look good. Pro tip: If you want to look your best, you have to feel your best – and that means wearing what makes you comfortable. Pick a dress that you won’t be fidgeting in all night so you can dance with confidence!
3) Show your smile. It’s the simplest truth – a smile is the most beautiful thing! So while you’re smiling your way through the next wedding ceremony and reception, make sure it’s a bright one! You don’t have to spend lots of money on at-home kits or salon procedures to get a pearly-white smile, you just have to pick the right toothpaste. Arm & HammerTM Truly RadiantTM Clean & Fresh toothpaste is clinically proven to whiten your teeth in five days, deep cleans and provides long-lasting freshness with a cool surge of spearmint, you’ll love! It fits perfectly into your daily routine!
4) Post-Wedding Recovery. Weddings can be tiring! You’ll be sure to feel the negative effects of standing, dancing and minimal sleep the very next morning. If you don’t have the luxury of sleeping in the day after a wedding, be sure to drink lots of water and wear comfortable shoes to keep yourself feeling ready for anything!
These four tips are smart tips that can ensure an easier, stress-free time for you. For my wedding; as a bride, I made sure I took care of my needs. I packed myself a make-up bag filled with odds and ends that I might need; you know, just in case. My bag had everything from an extra pair of underwear to extra bobby pins for my hair. I packed Advil, bandages, gum, and so much more. By packing all of these items (it was my own emergency kit) it made me feel more relaxed and confident.
What’s your secret for making it through wedding season?
