Your wedding day will forever be immortalised in the form of hundreds of photographs. It is worth a pre-wedding beauty routine to look and feel your best on this big day.
The following tips are sure to make you look revitalised, healthy and fit:
The scruffy look may give you that ragged manliness in everyday life, but it won't complement the pristine beauty of your bride on your wedding day. It also won't reflect well in 10 or 20 years’ time, when you look back at your wedding photos. So, make sure you shave on the morning of your wedding.
If you have a moustache or beard, treat yourself to a salon shave on the day for a neat and finished look.
Don't opt for the cheapest haircut. Spend extra if it means getting the perfect 'do. Have a look at various male celebrities and websites that have a range of men's styles to decide what you would like to sport on your wedding day. Preparation is key.
If you like the styles gels or mousses that the stylist uses on your hair, ask them what they did so that you can emulate the look in future.
Have a manly manicure
It is vital that your nails are clean, neat and short for your wedding day. There will be photographs of your hands to showcase your wedding ring as well as many guests asking to see them. So, use this opportunity as an excuse to be pampered in the salon with a very masculine manicure.
Many salons offer manicures especially for men, which usually include a hand massage (surprisingly relaxing) and the cleaning, trimming and buffing of your nails.
A million dollar smile
Have a look in the mirror - your teeth may be slightly discoloured, especially if you smoke or drink a lot of coffee, tea or red wine.
Be especially camera-friendly by visiting the dental hygienist for a teeth cleaning session and possibly a teeth whitening session. If you suffer from bad breath, this is the time to ask your densist to help you solve this problem. In addition to looking great on your wedding day, this will boost your confidence in everyday life.
Cut the extra weight
Start an exercise programme about three to six months before your wedding day to shed those extra kilos.You'll need to build up stamina for your wedding day as you'll be on your feet all day, and for your wedding night too!
Roll on that deodorant
You're probably going to be wearing a suit on your big day and together with the heavy fabric, your nerves and the running around you'll be doing, you're likely to work up a sweat. Anticipate this with a good quality anti-perpirant and make sure you have a can of spray on deodorant for a quick freshen up if you need it.
It's also worth carrying a handkerchief to dab your face with so that you don't appear shiny in your wedding photos.
