When I first started wedding planning I knew exactly how I wanted it to be, and what my dream wedding would look like: stress-free! Which is why the first vendor I hired was a wedding planner. I could care less about the ‘dream dress’ the ‘dream flowers’ the ‘dream etc etc etc’. All I knew is that I had my dream man, and that is all that counts 😉 I kept my expectations very low, but was very decisive and selective about quality within the choices I had. My planner would say, “You are the most zen bride- – that requests all the most fabulous things”. Precisely..
Day of the wedding, I kept telling myself to be in the moment, be present. I am glad I did because there were some amazing moments I was able to take in fully.
Here is what I did to get my mind, body, beauty as best as it could possibly be. (I did not change much in what I usually do, however I was definitely way more careful and conscious of what I was doing, making sure I was getting enough sleep, etc.)
30-Day Wedding Preparation:
Meditation daily with affirmations
A Course In Miracles Reading twice a week + Yoga once a week – self practice.
SLT twice, just twice within the month- why only twice? Because SLT really works. And it works instantly. So I knew I had to keep it at a minimum as I like my shape a specific way. I don’t like to look too ‘cut’.
Green Juice + Watermelon Juice and/or Acai Bowl everyday.
Frank Bod Body Scrub – twice a week.
Korean Spa + Scrub – once every 2 weeks.
Affirmations every other day.
Eye Mask + Sheet Mask everyday Leaders InSolution
Gel Manicure every 10 days.
Eyelash Extensions one week before the wedding
Glycolic + Enzyme Facial Peel (Triple Peel Facial) 10 days before the wedding
IPL Treatment – 2 days before the wedding
Morning of Wedding Preparation:
Group meditation with bridesmaids + I led a prayer.
Body Scrub (not a group effort 🙂 )
Leaders Insolution Sheet Masks for all of us before hair & makeup.
