Relax Relax Relax 

We really do not like to mention it, then again stress can have a visible reaction on your face, therefore you must relax day before your wedding. We highly recommend you to sleep as early as possible right before your wedding day. In order to be happy and enjoy your wedding day just go to bed as early as possible thinking that It’s going to be amazing!

Eat something even if you’re not hungry

Even though you have butterflies in your stomach even to think about your breakfast, as it is your big day, that is not a good idea actually. You should eat something and it will help you to get through the day. 

Set a backup alarm

It is essential to set a backup alarm in addition to your alarm just in case. You can ask two or three members of your family to set their alarms as well. It is just because you absolutely don’t want to be late to your wedding and there’s nothing like having your family waking you up on your big day

Meet your makeup artist 

You can ask your makeup artist for a discussion as early as you want and thereby you can let him know the look you’re aiming for. Makeup artist definitely will help you out to choose your saree and colors for your brides’ maid as well. Most importantly you should tell what you have in your mind to your makeup artist. Then he knows clearly what you want exactly.


If you really like to go for facials, or full-face threading, you can get those done. Yet it is not essential if you have a healthy skin or you are perfectly fine about your skin tone. Yet make sure that you do not pluck your eyebrows on your wedding day as well. When you meet your makeup artist, he will surely identify the tone of your skin and thereby he will recommend you the products that you should use. Follow them. 

DON'T get a manicure/pedicure hours before the ceremony.

Please do not apply nail polish hours before the wedding and you will have to be stuck sitting around waiting them to dry, if you do it on the wedding day itself. You can get this done the day before.

Do not use conditioner.

We advise our brides-to be to use only shampoo when they wash and please do not wash your hair in the morning of your wedding day.

Don’t try any new products up to three weeks before your wedding

Do not use new products that you have not used before. This contains skincare, hair care and make up.

Do not apply body cream on your hands.

SPF and moisturizing cream may reflect light off your body in professional pictures, therefore avoid using this.
