In all the planning for your beautiful day don’t forget to put time into taking care of you!  Here are some tips for you to follow!

Drink water, rest, and drink more water. I know the time leading up to the wedding can be a very hectic258921178_8f17a0ad43_m and stressful time, but your skin truly reflects what’s going on inside your body, and any stress or worry will show on your face if you let it! I cannot stress the importance of staying extra-hydrated during this time as well…this will help your complexion glow, and will also get rid of under eye circles.  I also recommend that brides cut out sugar, processed foods, and load up on leafy greens, berries, citrus fruits, fish and green tea in the weeks leading up to the wedding. These essential vitamins and anti-oxidants are a crucial part in good skin care, and your body will thank you, too!

Embrace exfoliation! This is an important step in skin care that lots of women forget about. I recommend that you exfoliate your face twice a week for the month leading up to the wedding, this will slough off dead skin cells, aid in the skin cell turnover process, and reveal a beautiful new layer of skin that will glow on your wedding day. It also provides a wonderful canvas for makeup application. With that being said, please do not get a facial the day of the wedding! Your skin needs a few days to “heal”, meaning it is possible and normal for your face to be a little red and puffy the day of your facial, and that’s not something you want on your wedding day! Also, if you get extractions during your facial, make sure to do that at least 2 weeks prior.

The colors you choose says a lot about you. Yellows are associated with cheerful, gentleness, tenderness and joy. And I can’t get yellows out of my head–maybe it’s because yellow is associated with spring and yellows are a perfect fit with early Spring weddings when the world is just about to burst into color. It’s perfect for the couple who is cheerful and wants to celebrate, but in a more gentle, refined way. Yellows are also perfect to mix with other spring colors, such as light sky-blues, or moss-greens.

Anyone else desperately ready for spring?! The weather teases me with warmth one day and snow the very next but my heart is already in spring! Daily I dream about my pink tulips emerging from the soil and the sun on my face! In my dreaming about spring and flowers I found this beautiful centerpiece I thought I would share with all my spring brides. =)
