There is lots and lots to do before the big day, but there is also a lot NOT to do. Here are the top five things not to do in the months (and days) before your wedding!
1. Don’t try anything new in the beauty department.
Never tried eyebrow waxing? Don’t start the day before the wedding. You could break out in a rash, and that’s the last thing you want! Never tried spray tanning? Never dyed your hair? Don’t start before the wedding! The color could be all wrong with no time to fix it. Never used mousse? Don’t start the day of the wedding unless you want to turn your hair into a hard shell. We’ve all heard of hair and makeup trials, and they’re popular for good reason. Try things WELL in advance to avoid beauty mishaps.
2. Don’t starve yourself.
You’ll be stressed out enough before the wedding. Starving yourself will only make it worse, and it’s not necessary (or healthy!). Be kind to yourself, and eat well (throw some treats in there too).
3. Don’t second guess your wedding choices.
A month out, your choices in vendors, colors, dresses, etc are pretty much set in stone. True, some last minute changes are possible, but keep them to a minimum. Otherwise, you’ll just drive yourself crazy (and your fiancé too), and you may end up with no vendor at all!
4. Don’t spend too much time out in the sun (especially with straps).
Too much time in the sun isn’t good for anyone, but especially not before the wedding. You don’t want a sunburn, awkward tan lines, or peeling skin on the big day.
5. Don’t push yourself too hard.
It won’t be easy during the crunch time, but you need to take some time for you (and for the two of you). Get enough sleep, go for walks, take breaks from your phone (which will probably be constantly notifying you of something or other), and do whatever you need to do to stay calm and marry on!
