For most people, their wedding day is the most important day of their lives. A lifetime goes into planning a wedding to make sure everything goes perfectly. From centerpieces, to the guest list, to floral arrangements, to catering, sometimes it can be difficult to know where to begin. Even as you’re scratching things off your to-do list, there might be a few things that slip your mind. Often, these forgotten tasks have to do with you.
Here are a few often-forgotten wedding prep tasks that might easily slip your mind.
Care about Your Hair
There is no better feeling than having a great hair day. And, of course, this is a necessity for your wedding day. Something you should keep in mind as soon as you get engaged, is the fact that your hair grows, on average, a ¼ inch per month. Getting in touch with your hairstylist early on to talk about your hair for your big day is crucial. Go over the styles you have in mind and consider the length you have. If your hair isn’t where you want it to be, you can consider taking gummies that help make it thicker and grow faster. They are loaded with vitamins A and D, which help encourage blood flow to the scalp, thus stimulating the hair follicles. On top of that, these gummies have vitamin B12, vitamin C, and calcium.
Also, men can gain a big boost in confidence if they have a full head of hair. For your groom, consider a product to slow down the hair loss process and provide a boost for a thicker head of hair. These products can stop testosterone from converting into DHT, the androgen that shrinks hair follicles and results in hair loss. Both the bride and groom will be feeling confident with their full heads of hair.
Shine Bright Like a Diamond
If you want to feel your best, it begins with what you put into your body. That starts with your diet. Natural foods tend to have the most benefits for your body, including your skin. To get that wedding-day glow, in the weeks leading up to the big day, try incorporating salmon and papayas into your meals. Salmon is packed with niacin, which is a vitamin that keeps your skin cells healthy. On top of that, it includes selenium, which is an antioxidant that helps protect your skin against the sun. Papayas are a tropical fruit loaded with vitamin C and potent antioxidants that help protect the skin against wrinkles. They can help fade fine lines and make your skin feel younger and healthier.
Keep Your Mind Healthy
Mental health is something that isn’t often spoken about but is extremely important during your wedding planning. While preparing for the big day, your mind will be spinning. It is important to take a second to sit down and relax to focus on what matters. This should be the best day of your life, not the most stressful. Lower anxiety with meditation. Consider an app for your smartphone that offers 10-20 minute meditation sessions to lower anxiety, improve your sleep, and promote mindfulness. Having a clear head when you are making big decisions is critical to the success of your big day. Talk about your concerns with your fiancé when you are feeling calm and go from there.
