Ok, lets start with a quick trivia – What is the difference between the term Marriage and Wedding ?
Wedding is the ceremony to get into a relationship called Marriage 🙂
Therefore inviting people by writing “You are invited to my wedding.” is correct rather than saying “You are invited to my marriage”.
Every young girl dreams of getting married to her prince charming some day in a fairy tale manner. Weddings in any culture are a big moment for any girl or groom for that matter.
Girls from the subcontinent like India, Pakistan, Middle East Asia (UAE, Dubai) etc. have a long drawn tradition of preparing for the wedding-months in advance.
These days Bollywood style weddings are quite a rage in India and with Indians settled abroad in US, UK and other parts of the world.
Most often the preparation involves Guest list planning, Venue Selection, Wedding Jewelry,Clothing, Food, logistics and following the traditional rituals during the wedding ceremony.
On a personal front though, the bride and the groom focus on enhancing their appearance only at the last moment.
This typically involves, hiring a bridal makeup artist or specialist to do makeup during engagement and wedding events.
There are very few who really focus on wedding “make over”.
Most of my clients are confused between MakeUp and MakeOver especially for such a big event in their life called Wedding.
In order to appear “your Best” during the wedding period, its not only important to focus on Makeup, Jewelry, Clothing aspects but also on enhancing your personality and health.
In order to appear your best during the wedding period, we generally recommend to start the basic preparation of focusing on your health and lifestyle aspects at least 4-6 months in advance. This would involve focus on your diet, daily routine , building stamina and focusing on critical health aspects like managing your periods,PCOD related issues etc., skin care , dental hygiene and hair care. The most important aspect governing most of these health areas is Diet and lifestyle modifications.
Consult a good dietitian and make subtle changes in your lifestyle based on your health issues can prepare you for the big day and the life after wedding 🙂
