Every girl’s dream is to have a wedding as perfect as possible. Some would have even planned it out years before even getting into their 20’s. But what could be a perfect wedding be based from? Is it with having the perfect groom, the glamorous wedding gown or the envy-of-all make-up?
A wedding may seem to be centered at the bride. People would want to see the bride to be as pristine, glamorous and elegant woman in a flowing white gown that dramatically walks down the aisle. But aside from wanting to have that great gown, the pride should also be physically fit to be able to give justice to the lovely gown that she has chosen. Is it all work to get married? Of course! We want to be at our best on the very important occasion in our lives. Working out may not be of interest to other brides-to-be, but why not also make it as a chance for you and your bridesmaids to bond?
Wedding make-up should be as natural as possible. Some who claims to be good make-up artists would pile up on a bride’s face thinking that having it more is better. But of course, we all know that less is more. One other problem that brides experience is having an oily face. If there is one witch that a bride needs during her wedding day, it is a Witch Hazel. It helps get rid of the oil on the face thus makes the skin as perfect as a canvass to glide make-up on. Witch hazel can be found on ointments and creams that is for the treatment of insect bites, burn, scrapes and cuts to act as an anti-inflammatory agent.
There are superstitious beliefs in the Philippines wherein the bride should not fit her wedding gown. And that is what I only knew until I was getting married. It was not only the gown which should not be tried on but as well as the shoes! Imagine me searching for the perfect shoes for hours and then when I was about to pay for it, my husband’s aunt asked the sales clerk to get a new pair! I thought that it won’t be a problem, but it did KILL MY FEET on my wedding day! I just prayed so hard that I could stand wearing it for 6 hours. Right after the last guest went outside of the ballroom, I took my shoes off and walked barefooted until we reached the suite. Can you imagine how fake my smile was because my feet were hurting so much?
The Wedding—we prepare it months ahead and hope that it would turn out just what we wanted it to be. Although there may be some bumps along the way, the best thing about it is you get the man for keeps!
