There is certainly no shortage of advice available for planning a wedding today. But when it comes to your big day, you might need some advice for yourself. These are the tips you need to look and feel your best on your special day.

Say Affirmations

Reciting affirmations on the morning of your big day can allow your to feel your best. These powerful words and phrases can make your feel great. Consider reciting “I am beautiful” or “I give and receive love all the time” to feel your best. Start your big day with a few positive words in front of the mirror. You might be surprised at how good you feel afterwards.

Eat Breakfast

Many brides skip breakfast on their big day to avoid bloating. But this is not a safe or healthy approach to looking or feeling your best. Nobody likes a hangry bride, either. You don’t have to eat a lot to feel good. A small breakfast with protein and carbs can do the trick. A good rule to follow is to eat when your guests eat. A little bite here and there throughout the day can give you the energy to dance all night long.


Stress is inevitable. Most brides deal with stress in the months and days leading up to their wedding day, even on the day itself. But there's a simple remedy to dealing with all of that stress; exercise. Regular exercise is a great stress manager. Exercise boosts your feel-good endorphins, improves your mood and can even boost your confidence.

And the good news is that any type of exercise provides these stress-reducing benefits, from yoga to cycling. When your big day approaches, get out for a workout. If you belong to a club like 24 Hour Fitness, check to see if there is a gym nearby. Or if you’re getting married in a remote location or having a destination wedding, a few moments of yoga in your room before prepping for the day can do a lot of good.

Drink Water

It’s commonly recommended to drink eight glasses of water on a daily basis. This is also true for your wedding day. While you may be thinking about all of those extra trips to the girl’s room, you should be thinking about your skin.

Not drinking enough water can lead to dehydration. This is not good for your body as dehydration can cause headaches and leave you feeling lethargic. And it’s really not good for your skin, as dehydration can make your skin look dull. For a bright and healthy wedding day glow, try drinking at least eight glasses of water and snacking on foods like citrus and veggies like to stay hydrated and glowing.

Avoid Too Much Alcohol

A common mistake that many brides make on their big day is imbibing a little too much. This can be disastrous when partnered with an empty stomach, too. To look and feel your best before walking the aisle, try to forgo the pre-wedding bubbly. Carbonated alcoholic drinks like champagne can make you look and feel bloated. Instead, wait until the reception to enjoy a glass. Following this simple wedding day rule will keep you clear-headed and at your best all day.
