We all know that your beauty stems from the inside and is most important but there may be a part of you that feels you'll feel less confident on your wedding day without a proper skin or haircare routine in place, and you're worried it may lead to tired-looking skin, under-eye bags, and lackluster hair on your big day.
Whether you struggle with a skin condition, have allowed the stress of planning your wedding to show physically, or simply want to enhance your natural features for healthy, glowing, hydrated skin then it's fair to say that your current wellness weak spot would be 'Beauty'.
But it goes far beyond your wedding, by taking the time to understand your skin, hair, and nails, you'll have a better understanding of how to care for them well past your wedding day.
And we're going to help you with that 🧖♀️
Without an established beauty routine in place, you may feel less confident and comfortable on your wedding day.
WHAT THIS LOOKS LIKE
Not having a beauty routine before the wedding can lead to breakouts, frizzy hair, and low self-confidence.
Brides may feel self-conscious and uncomfortable with blemishes, while frizzy hair can be difficult to manage.
A lack of confidence can impact demeanor and posture, detracting from the enjoyment of the wedding day.
HOW IT WORKS
Not establishing a beauty routine before the wedding can have lasting effects beyond just the big day. It may even lead to the development of negative habits, such as neglecting self-care, haircare, and skincare, which can be challenging to break.
If we're getting a bit deeper here then it can also indicate a lack of prioritization for personal well-being and self-care, which can negatively affect your overall health and happiness.
BEAUTY NEGLECT CAN LEAD TO FEELING DISAPOINTED IN YOUR APPEARANCE
WHAT YOUR WEDDING WELLNESS WEAK SPOT SAYS ABOUT YOU
You're Adaptable & Relaxed
TELL-TALE SIGNS YOU MAY NEED TO Commit Daily TO BUILD YOUR BEAUTY ROUTINE
DULL OR TIRED
Hair lacks shine and volume
Breakouts or other skin issues
When someone lacks a beauty routine before their wedding, their skin may appear dull or tired due to a buildup of dead skin cells, lack of hydration, and poor circulation. Stress and lack of sleep can contribute to the appearance of tired-looking skin, further detracting from a bride's overall appearance and confidence on her wedding day.
Without regular cleansing, conditioning, and styling, hair can become weighed down with buildup, oil, and sweat. This can make it difficult to achieve the desired style creating volume and movement in the hair. Additionally, a lack of hydration and essential nutrients can lead to dry, brittle hair that doesn't reflect light or appear healthy.
Without proper cleansing, exfoliation, and moisturization, pores can become clogged with dirt, oil, and makeup, leading to pimples and other blemishes. Failure to establish a beauty regimen prior to the wedding may result in the bride struggling to achieve the clear, radiant skin she desires on her wedding day, which can affect her self-assurance and overall look.
By establishing a regular routine for your beauty regime before the wedding, you'll be able to establish a foundation that will last you for a lifetime of healthy habits and self-care.
Starting a beauty routine can be overwhelming, but it doesn't have to be. Begin by setting small goals like establishing a daily cleansing routine, moisturizing, and sun protection, then gradually add exfoliation, serums, and nourishing habits like drinking water, eating well, and sleeping enough for healthy, glowing skin on your wedding day. Regular washing, conditioning, and minimizing heat styling can keep your hair healthy and voluminous for your wedding too.
Identify your skin type and concerns
products and brands
Stay consistent AND PATIENT
Knowing your skin type (dry, oily, combination, sensitive, etc.) and the specific issues you want to address (acne, dark spots, wrinkles, etc.) can help you select the right products and treatments.
Look for products and brands that are reputable and suitable for your skin type and concerns. Researching products and brands can help you find high-quality, effective beauty products that work for your skin type and concerns, helping you achieve your best look for your wedding day.
To see the benefits of a beauty routine, it's important to be consistent and patient. Give your skin and hair the time and care they need to improve and adapt your routine as needed. Don't get discouraged if you don't see results right away - beauty is a journey, and you'll eventually see the payoff in healthy, glowing skin and hair.

MARRIAGE MENTOR & SERIALPRENEUR, KNOWN FOR GUIDING DIY BRIDES IN CRAFTING A WILDLY UNIQUE AND MAGICAL WEDDING DAY OF THEIR DREAMS.
Hi, I’m Nikki — founder of the bridal bible that is Wed-in-Bliss, and teddy bear terrier co-parent. Having planned my own lavish winter wedding in 2018, and after mentoring thousands of brides within our communities to build their dream day without overwhelm, it’s safe to say I’ve seen it all.
As brides most of us are so involved in our planning process that we’re simply too close to be able to pinpoint the #1 wedding wellness issue keeping us at a stalemate. (It’s not just you—trust me.) But where many go wrong is that once they’re able to identify the weak spot, they go into overdrive—trying to do everything all at once instead of taking intentional, strategic action in formulating a wellness regime to last far beyond your wedding day. But it can be hard to determine not only the best steps but also how to prioritize them when we're already so busy with the strategy side of planning a wedding.
That’s why my amazing Bridal Retreat coach, Melissa Maxwell, and I have created a brand new free masterclass giving you the proven roadmap to curating a wellness routine that's set up with your weak spot in mind.
