How to Prepare Yourself for Your Big Day

Your wedding requires months of planning and preparations, from the flowers and caterers to the music and seating charts. Don’t forget that you also need to be prepped and primped for your day in the spotlight. Make sure you look your best with a fit figure and a bridal glow. With a few months of focus and dedication, you can transform your look and wow your guests when you walk down the aisle. Here are some important tips to help you develop your pre-wedding bridal regimen and get you ready for your big day:

Nutrition

Your number one nutrition mantra should be “keep it clean.” Eliminate processed foods from your diet, as they tend to have chemicals and sugars that can adversely affect your body and skin. Gluten and dairy can cause gastro or colonic problems, which have a negative effect on your skin and can cause bloating. So, substitute alternatives, such as gluten free bread, rice instead of pasta and coconut milk.

Fruits and vegetables are your best friend during your pre-wedding diet. Produce is low in calories and contains a lot of vitamins to keep you healthy. Kimberly Snyder’s “The Beauty Detox” provides guidance and information that will help you on your quest toward radiant skin and the body you’ve always wanted.

Supplements

Certain vitamins amp up your energy and appearance. They fuel your body with the elements it needs to be fit and beautiful. When you can, go natural. For example, use black walnut leaf as an anti-fungal and a blemish remedy. Fish oil provides the Omega 3 vitamins you need for soft, supple and glowing skin. Vitamin C is important for supporting a strong immune system.

One of the most dangerous elements of planning a wedding is the stress. Ward off any damaging physical effects of stress with supplements like melatonin, magnesium, valerian root, vitamin B-complex, theanine and phosphatidylserine. For some in-depth information on these stress-fighting supplements, reference One Medical’s website.

Bridal Fitness

A solid fitness regimen will do wonders for the way you look and feel. Mix up your fitness routine so you don’t get tired of your workouts. Do cardio every other day and strength training about two days per week. There are a number of helpful fitness programs that you can follow. One of the most effective and popular female fitness programs was created by an Australian fitness instructor, Kayla Itsines. The “Sweat with Kayla” app or other similar apps will keep you on track with your workout goals and provide clear guides for each exercise.

Skin Care

You’re going to take a ton of photos on your big day, so make sure your skin looks the best it ever has. Take care of your delicate skin with a careful curation of beauty products. Combat summer sunspots with serums and lotions that protect your skin from damage and keep your skin well-hydrated. Take a break from or use less makeup for a few months so your skin can fully repair itself before your wedding day. If you let your skin breath and only use skin care products that build up and not cover up your skin, it will have time to transform.
