- Wedding: February 2014
Okay, so I’m just curious what all of you bees invested or plan on investing in your “vanity” for your big day. While I realize most bees want to look natural and “like themselves” the day of, I love dramatic hair and makeup, and plan on going all out. I personally want to look like the absolute best version of myself. I do full on hair and makeup, tanning, nails painted, etc daily. So, I’ll be going a little above and beyond just this one time… Maybe even a bit excessive. Before any inner-beauty comments come rolling in, I fully realize that the day will be magical and will overshadow any shallow concerns I have. However, vain or not, I want to feel flawless for my once-in-a-lifetime day (and honeymoon!). As I compiled my list, I wondered what other women do simply for the “day of”. So, here it goes:
-Hair Extensions the week of (tape in, for volume and length), along with the obvious coloring, styling, etc.
-Eyelash Extensions the day before
-Tanning the three months prior… Mostly indoor tanning (which I usually stay away from), and light self-tanner the day of.
-Professional Teeth Whitening during the three months prior
-Body Wrap the morning of (possible sauna action, too, but not positive yet)
-Shellac manicure and shellac pedicure (so it stays on for the honeymoon), the day before
-Botox (light, for forehead creases) month prior
-Light lip plumping month prior
-Makeup, of course, but will be very carefully picking out and buying all of my own high-end cosmetics for my MUA to use
-Hired both a personal trainer and nutritionist over five months prior, and went on very strict diet… Will resume until at least one month post-wedding to work off any honeymoon weight
-Full bikini wax
-Eyebrow threading and tinting
… That should be the extent of it. So, bees, what were some of the vanity things that you invested in, that you wouldn’t normally do on a daily basis?
