Once you have started planning your wedding, you then need to get to grips with the finer details. One of these finer details will be the look you want to create or emulate on your wedding day. If you do not know what look you want, then how can you shine in your dress, and how can you stand out and grab everyone’s attention? Creating the perfect wedding day look will take time, but you will get fantastic results with perseverance.
Go with What Is Comfortable
To begin with, you will want to go with a comfortable look. Now is not the time to start undergoing major changes or transformations. When you are focusing on being comfortable, you are less focused on everyone else. You are also more focused on having a good time and making memories, and isn’t this what it is all about? You may find that comfort to you means wearing your hair in a way you know. Or, it may mean wearing a pair of comfortable shoes instead of high heels that you struggle to walk in – let alone dance in!
Think About What You Would Like
To get the perfect look, you will have to think about what you would like. Start putting together a lookbook and saving images you love. If you do not have the inspiration to draw from, you may find that your wants and requirements get lost in translation with those who are trying to help. So, what does your perfect wedding day look like, and what look are you rocking on the day? Are you going for a laid back more natural look? Or are you going for full glam? These are all questions to answer – and looking at theme, style, and aesthetic inspiration will help with this part of the process.
Do a Dress Rehearsal
Leaving the trying on of the dress, or even leaving hair styling and makeup until the last minute, can be disastrous. Where you can (and where you have time), try and focus on doing a dress rehearsal. A dress rehearsal will allow you to go through everything you envisage for your wedding day. It will also allow you to iron out any kinks or imperfections before the big day arrives.
Practice Your Makeup Routine and Application
If you are doing your own makeup for your wedding day, take some time to practice. You want to ensure consistent results when applying your makeup, so invest in the practice time. When you are in control of your makeup by doing it yourself, you can get the look and the application that you want. Of course, if you’re not a natural at makeup or don’t have makeup skills (or even if you do, but you are struggling to choose a look), you may find that the stress and pressure of trying to do your own leaves you blank in terms of inspiration. So, for those times, check out some makeup tips for your wedding day from experts. Following a few makeup tips will help you get the perfect wedding day look you have been striving for.
Get Support Where You Can
Even though you are working on creating a perfect wedding day look, it doesn’t mean that you have to undergo the process all by yourself. You will find that the support and assistance you get (from loved ones and friends) can give you more time to yourself. This will be the time that you can use to try out new styles or makeup tricks, too.
