Are you a nervous bride-to-be who is confused about what to do and what not before and after your D Day? You’re not alone, miss. Every jittery bride-to-be has a checklist made six months in advance so she doesn’t miss out on anything.
From hair to make-up to post-wedding stuff to where to store her gifts…she needs to plan everything. Here’s a kickass checklist that every bride-to-be should have. Read on!
Hair, dress and make-up:
This is the most important segment for a girl. You have to have a hair dresser and hairdo in mind, before you walk down the aisle in your lovely dress. Get an appointment with a hair salon that specialises in hairdos and go for trials about a fortnight before your big day. Once you’ve locked on your hairdo, move on to your dress. If you’re wearing a saree, choose a colour that’s season-appropriate.
If it’s summer, opt for shades of red, pink and purple. And if it’s winter, go for peaches, greens and blues. Why we are asking you to lock in on your hairdo is that even if your dress turns out to be crappy, your brilliant hairdo will save the day. Keep your make-up also season-specific. Keep it light, bright and sun-kissed for a May-June wedding, while go for dark, sparkly and rose-tinted for winter/monsoon weddings.
Shoes and jewels:
When it comes to your jewellery, you should keep a track of your new purchases as well as your hand-me-downs. If you’re wearing your mother’s or grandmom’s jewels, you should keep a list of what you’re going to wear from this lot and what you’re going to pick out from your new purchases. As far as possible, wrap this up a good three months before your wedding day so you’re sorted.
Face and body rituals:
Six months before your wedding, you have to start with a skincare regime that will keep you glowing and fresh before the big day. You should start with chocolate waxing and other body rituals well before your wedding so you can avoid any allergies and reactions. If you’re planning to go for face packs or masks, go for trials at least two-three times to know which pack complements your skin the best. Don’t forget your regular manicures and pedicures during the six months.
Packing for post-wedding:
This is perhaps the toughest thing to do. You have to start packing your suitcase well in advance so you don’t leave out your favourite stuff and other memorabilia from your home. You have to also pack your post-wedding clothes for various rituals that you have to be a part of at your in-laws’.
Here’s wishing all the brides-to-be a very happy married life ahead!
