The Best Wedding Prep Beauty Tips
In the lead up to your wedding day, there is so much to organise, from the venue, to the photographer, flowers, food, invitations, guest lists... then there is the dress... not to mention the shoes which are often harder than the dress! With all of this going on, it is easy to forget to take extra care of yourself.
I know for me running a business with small children, there is a lot of stress, not enough sleep or "me" time and it has taken its toll on my health and certainly on my complexion.
The stress of planning a wedding - no matter how enjoyable it also is - can have the same effect for brides to be.
So I have put together some of the best pre wedding beauty/health tip blogs (which mind you, some tips should be applied for all areas of life, i.e. stress management) for you to have a read of and get inspired by! So you can end up looking and feeling your best on the big day x x

GRITTY PRETTY’S ELEANOR PENDLETON REVEALS HER WEDDING DAY BEAUTY PREP
" 24 MONTHS OUT - When Mat and I became engaged, my hair was shoulder length. I decided to grow it out immediately to give myself more options come our wedding day. I had regular trims (which for me is 3 months because I’m impossibly low-maintenance when it comes to my hair). My hair stylist Remington Schulz at Sydney’s Edwards & Co looked after me; and I used a hair mask once a week (usually Oribe or David Mallett). "
