Wedding hacks are perfect for any party or special occasion, including weddings, because we naturally want to look our best.

It’s a confidence thing you see, the better we look, the happier and more confident we feel. That’s why we worry about how we should dress, in what way we should style our hair, and how we should do our makeup. It’s natural to want to look your best for special occasions and events, but there’s no need to stress. To help you ensure that you look incredible at your next social event, below are some wedding hacks to try.

Leave plenty of time to pamper yourself

It’s nice to pamper yourself a little before attending a special event or occasion, so make sure to leave time for it. One of my fave party or wedding hacks is to have a warm bubble bath. Bathing is an excellent way to relax and unwind before heading out; you just have to make time for it.

Start getting ready no later than three hours before you’re due to go out so that you have plenty of time and aren’t in a rush. Lightly scented candles, add bubbles, recline, relax. Probably a good idea NOT to start on the champagne, at this point, or you’ll be a little TOO relaxed.

To ensure that you smell gorgeous, spray your perfume onto damp, warm skin – when you get out of the bath is perfect. This is because damp skin locks the scent in so your perfume will stay on for longer. If you’ve got a scented body cream that matches your perfume, it’s also worth applying this to help build up the scent.

Get a helping hand

If you want to look your best, the oldest of wedding hacks is to get a helping hand. From stylists to makeup there are people with the skills to help you look amazing. So feel super pampered and hire a mobile makeup artist to come to you. They will be able to apply your makeup professionally and give you the perfect look for your party.

The same goes for your hair and nails. If you can’t do them yourself, which can be tricky, call the professionals. Just think how fabulous you will feel when your hair, makeup, and nails all look incredible. If you can’t afford to hire someone then resort to the tried and true ‘practice practice practice’ until you achieve the look that you want.

Plan your outfit and accessories in advance

Whatever you do, don’t leave choosing your outfit and accessories until the last minute. If you want to ensure that you’ve amped up the WOW factor you need to plan your outfit and accessories well in advance. That way you know exactly what you’re wearing and don’t have to worry about it. If you’re buying a new outfit, start looking for it at least one month before your party. This should give you plenty of time to find the perfect one that makes you look and feel happy, confident, and totally gorgeous.
