We all want to look and feel our best on our wedding day and you’re gonna need to do some prep work for that big day. We’re rounding up our favorite products and techniques to use to look and feel like a princess on your wedding day!
It’s important to exfoliate your skin, whether that’s with a loofah sponge or a sugar scrub. Exfoliation scrubs away dead skin cells on the surface of your skin and gives you a subtle glow, plus it’s great for your pre and post tanning ritual if you decide to get one for your wedding. Another benefit of exfoliating the body and face is it makes it less likely for you to develop any razor burn or bumps and allows the face to soak up moisturizer and makeup much smoother.

There’s nothing worse than dry and cracked skin, it doesn’t matter if it’s your elbows and hands or your face. Your body will look older than you are and feel leathery, your face will not soak or blend your makeup as well as it will otherwise and settle into fine lines and wrinkles. Treat yourself with some moisturizing and cooling under eye patches to take away any puffiness or bags and use a quartz roller to help soak it into your skin. Don’t forget your lips either! Nobody wants their first kiss as husband and wife with a dry and cracked lip, and ladies, your lipstick will not last all night and settle into the cracks, so don’t skip this step with lip balm or a lip mask!
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Lots of Rocky Mountain weddings are at higher elevations and when traveling to a higher elevation and consuming some drinks, if you don’t keep up with the H2O you’re gonna be sorry tomorrow and end your night a little earlier than you anticipated. Additionally, if you are not adjusted to higher altitudes many companies sell small oxygen cans that can drastically improve your stamina. Additionally, brides and grooms, don’t overindulge the night before as you’ll want to wake up refreshed and ready to start the day, but if you do, no need to fret, try adding a Liquid IV electrolight supplement in your water.

Lots of companies like Wish Gifts in Denver carry a mini emergency kit for brides and bridesmaids. They typically include bobby pins, safety pins, clear nail polish, a small tampon, bandaids, a small comb, hairspray, a sewing kit, and blister cream for those tired feet. Ensure that you have a trusted bridesmaid to keep track of the kit for any last minute touch ups and needs!
