Brides have a lot to think about when planning their wedding but most forget one simple thing. They forget that they have to take care of themselves on the day of the wedding. It is important that brides remember that this is suppose to be their special day. Everyone will be coming to see the Bride and you need to look relaxed and refreshed.

At the top of every Bride's list should be to relax and enjoy her day. Whether you are a DIY Bride or have hired a Wedding Consultant, it is now the big day and you deserve to have just as much fun as your guest do. Here are a few tips that will help you get through your wedding day.

Tip #1 Makeup...It's not hard to Do!

About 3 weeks before the big day create a wedding day make-up bag. While purchasing your makeup for the wedding ask the sales consultant for samples of everything that you are purchasing. Place them in another little make-up bag. On the day of your wedding give it to a friend, bridesmaid, or family member to hold. Then when you need a quick touch up you have your handy little makeup bag nearby. Don't forget to wear waterproof mascara.

Sweetie Tip: Dab a little perfume just behind your ear, so when your sweetie goes to hug you, he is treated with a sweet hello!

Tip #2 Food for Thought!

While food may be the last thing on your mind, it is important that you have something nourishing to eat before you walk down the aisle. It is going to be a long day and you will need all the energy you can get. Most brides don't get a chance to enjoy the food at the reception anyway, so pack an energy bar in the emergency kit, have a fruit and veggie tray on hand as you and your girls are getting ready or have a breakfast brunch before the activities get started. Sure you will still fit in your dress.

Sweetie Tip: Pre-arrange for something to be waiting in the honeymoon suite after the wedding to share with your sweetie. Most couples are starving after the wedding day and will need to refuel before the wedding night festivities!!!!

Tip #3 Cinderella's Slipper...OUCH!

  Yes those strappy heels are gorgeous for the ceremony and for the pictures afterwards too but kick off those heels and get comfortable. Find a pair of flats, slip-ons, sneakers, or flip flops that won't have your feet bruised and battered for days to come. Make it fun and get your bridal party all a matching pair. What a great photo opportunity as well!

Sweetie Tip: Don't forget about your sweetie...The shoes that most grooms wear aren't that comfortable for the ceremony either. So he may be more comfortable in a pair of converse as well. Check out the Mr. and Mrs. flipflops on etsy.com

Here are just a few tips for you to consider. Remember that fun should be had by all...including the Bride. Relax and enjoy your wedding day!
