Preparation to Look and Feel Your Best on Your Big Day

Getting married is a very exciting time in anyone’s life. Naturally, you will want to look and feel your best so that you can make the most of it. Here are some tips for ensuring your health and beauty for this joyous occasion.


Wedding planning can take a lot out of a bride, but it should not be so stressful that you are losing sleep. Make sure to make your wedding plans well in advance so that you can rest easy the few days leading up to your wedding. You want your day to be wonderful and not feel like you are relieved to get it over with.

Stand up straight

Although this may seem like something your mother might have told you as a child, there is a great deal of truth to it. Standing up straight can help you avoid painful back and joint problems. If standing up straight seems painful, then you should consider seeing a chiropractor like Dr. Sol Cogan to assess what is causing your pain.

Try out hair and make up in advance

Trying out a new look the day of your wedding can be disastrous. Make sure that you are comfortable with hair and makeup styles before committing to one. Although it may cost you some money to try in advance, it is well worth it when you consider the disappointment and/or embarrassment you may face afterwards if it doesn’t work out.

Get in better shape

Your wedding is a great time to make good on any vows to achieve a higher level of physical fitness. Finding an exercise buddy can help you stick to your goals and have more fun. Your chiropractor can help you design an exercise routine that is right for you and your fitness goals.

Double-check your guest list

No one wants to face a loved one who has been forgotten from a guest list. Make sure you go over your list and make sure that everyone is included that you want to be there. A last minute invitation is much better than no invitation at all.


Stress can cause a variety of physical problems such as muscle pain and headaches. Becoming flushed or visibly distressed on or right before your big day can show when you walk down the aisle. Practicing being cool and collected will also help you deal with any difficult friends or relatives present on your big day if the need should arise. A relaxing evening at the spa the night before may be just the thing you need to unwind. Meditation can be a great way to train oneself to let go.

Think positive

Good thoughts and energy will help ensure that you are in a good mental state of mind for your big day. A wedding is a time of happiness and joy. Try not to stress too much about how others are perceiving you. If you stand up straight and walk proudly down the aisle, there is no doubt your guests will see your joy and beauty.
