Listen, I get it. Wanting to look your absolute best on your wedding day is normal! We all dream of strutting down the aisle looking stunning and whether you do end up booking these appointments or not, I am sure you will be breathtaking as a bride. Just the fact that you’re walking closer and closer to the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, surrounded by the people that love you the most in the world, your ear-to-ear smile will dazzle everyone in the room. Like Audrey Hepburn once said “happy girls are the prettiest girls.”
My experience as a Pittsburgh wedding photographer tells me this applies to brides, too! The following appointments are not supposed to make huge changes to your looks, it’s just that your Pittsburgh wedding is the perfect time to finally work on that gorgeous tan, smooth skin and glossy hair, like you’ve always wanted! Here are the most important appointments you should make before your wedding day:
Having an specialist look over your skin and recommend a treatment is really helpful as your get closer to your wedding day. All wedding photography looks ten times better when the bride’s skin is just glowing and you achieve this not with highlighter and lots of shimmer, but with a doctor’s special skincare routine! This is also a great excuse to finally get rid of any blemishes or adult acne you may have — just schedule a timely visit, several months in advance to your wedding and get that skincare going!
This is specific to each bride, but one of the most asked questions I get is: should I tan?
It’s completely up to you, but from experience, I can tell you that pairing a beautiful white dress with a nice, subtle glow on your Pittsburgh wedding photography looks absolutely stunning, every single time. You can book an appointment at a spa or a salon, just make sure you find a trustworthy esthetician that will know how to get the perfect, not orange or streaky, airbrush tan you’re looking for!
Schedule an appointment at the salon a few days before your wedding day — that way you can have a fresh manicure that is chip-free for your big day!
It may be kind of a cliché, I know, but having a beautiful smile on your wedding day really is the best accessory you’ll ever need. Book an appointment with a dentist for a simple cleaning and maybe go all the way and give those pearls a shine with a teeth whitening procedure!
