You just got engaged and in addition to planning your wedding, it's time to start preparing yourself to look and feel your best on the most exciting day ever.
You're the star of the show! I remember the day of my wedding, I had a lot of confidence in how I looked... which ultimately made the day even better!
Here are 10 ways to start prepping now, to be the sexiest, most beautiful bride there ever was!
#1 Make Sure Your Décolletage Is Smooth & Sexy
Most wedding dresses expose our upper body, a lot. Our chest and cleavage area are especially visible and should be smooth and glowing! We always take care of the skin on our face, but have you looked at your chest recently?
I have read countless articles stating that the décolletage area is considered to be one of the sexiest parts of the female body! I have to agree. I WISH I would've found this product before my wedding. Unfortunately, I had a lot of chest and cleavage wrinkles/lines I wasn't pleased with, sigh. I had even tried exfoliation but nothing really worked for me until I tried this product from Prai Beauty. Their Throat & Décolletage Creme worked wonders in just a week. It's good stuff and isn't expensive at all! Read my full review.
#2 Whiten Your Teeth
It's true, there will be so many photos and you will be smiling in all of them! Nothing is more gorgeous than a bright, white smile that dazzles as the bride walks by. I used to have really crooked teeth when I was younger. I couldn't afford braces so I just focused on whitening my teeth as much as I could. I got compliment after compliment on my smile, even though my teeth weren't perfectly straight. In photos, my teeth looked awesome... all you could see was how bright and shiny they were!
Whiten your teeth, and start now! You don't need to spend a ton of money going to the dentist, you can get some pretty inexpensive whitening products online.
#3 Start Working to Get Healthier Hair
There are all kinds of things you can do right now to start getting healthier hair. To get healthier and longer hair, I work to have a high protein diet. I take vitamins and supplements, drink lots of water, massage my scalp and use products that help my hair grow.
Here are some of the products I use and LOVE.
Premier Protein Shakes
These babies pack 30 grams of protein per shake, 24 vitamins and minerals and only 1 gram of sugar. They taste great. I remember asking the owner of a med spa one time (who had hair down to her butt) how she got her hair so long. She said "high protein diet!"
Sugar Bear Hair Gummy Vitamins
I remember seeing celebrities posting about these all over social media a few years back. I was skeptical and thought they just had a lot of money to spend on advertising, turns out... they're pretty awesome. Amazon reviews confirms.
Grow Long Shampoo
This stuff is under $10 and it's been amazing to my hair. Seriously, get a good shampoo like this one and start using it. Don't forget the conditioner. They also have a spray I use as well that is part of the Grow Long line and it is amazing!
Stimulate Your Scalp!
Take care of your scalp, no better time to do it then when you're in the shower washing your hair! Stimulating the scalp can stimulate hair growth, right? Just read the reviews on this!
#4 What's In Your Shower Water?
This brings me to my next point. I bet you're not thinking about this, because I sure didn't for years! I got a new shower head filter and it's been amazing. My hair and skin is softer and I love it. There are so many of these on Amazon with great reviews, check them out! They're super easy to install and last for quite a while as well.
#5 Exfoliate Your Skin & Moisturize (body)!
You're going to want your entire body to just glow and shine on your wedding day! (and don't forget how sexy you will want to be for that honeymoon, mama.)
It's no secret I love Osea. If you've ever tried their products, you know what I'm talking about. It's truly like you've brought a spa into your house. This at-home spa set is perfect for wedding preparation. It comes with a gentle exfoliation body polish and their Undaria Algae Body Oil.
#6 Start Prepping Your Face
I have found that exfoliation is a big contributor to making my skin just glow. It makes my skincare products work better. I have a few amazing products I've used that I just love to share with people. I also got a Hydrafacial a few times before my wedding day and WOW it was amazing. Check with a local trusted med spa to see if they offer them. You will be hooked!
Here are some of my favorite products that have given me gorgeous results:
Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peels
These peels are hands down AMAZING. They're just like these little wipes that you wipe on your face, and then you see magic happen. They're a little expensive but so worth it. If you haven't tried them, check them out and read the reviews so you can see why it is such a loved product. They also have some available for sensitive skin types.
Meladerm Pigment Corrector
I absolutely love the pigment corrector, Meladerm. Here is my before/after photo just after 16 days of use. It helped me SO MUCH. You can read my full review here.

I love the serums by Refresh Skin Therapy. Oh wow, these products are amazing. They're not expensive, and I've tried all 3 of these. I apply at night before bed, I would suggest picking the one that's right for you.
#7 Your Eyes Are Important!
We want bright, fresh, young eyes that POP! I feel like we forget our eyes a lot of times. We're so focused on our bodies, skin, teeth, hair and all that... we forget that our eyes are a HUGE focal point! Our eyes tell a story. The skin around our eyes can make us look older, tired, worn down or bright, youthful and cheery!
We all know I love Prai Beauty, and you can snag this eye duo kit for just $20 bucks!
#8 Eat Clean & Drink Water
I know this sounds so basic, but it makes a huge difference. A while back, I was so tired all of the time no matter how much I slept. I realized I was really dehydrated. I thought I was drinking enough, but I wasn't. My skin wasn't looking plump or moisturized, my face was dull, I just looked and felt "blah."
I started making a point to drink more water. No, I don't drink a gallon a day. Besides, I've heard that it can be dangerous to drink too much water. So, I drink the recommended 8 glasses a day. It helps to have a straw and just sip all day while I'm working. I have so much energy now, I look better and feel better. This little tip is something I've been telling everyone about lately! Start drinking more water and eat cleaner. Cut back on processed foods. You can even consider a detox. I'm a big believer that our beauty starts INSIDE our bodies.
SoFlo Detox is a really cool company. You can choose your own detox plan and get incredible juices and smoothies. No blender, no mess... no finding all the ingredients.
The truth is, we can apply face creams and use special shampoos all day... but what really helps is to look at our INSIDES and what we put INTO our body. If we have a body that's working well on the INSIDE, it's going to show a ton on the outside! THEN, it's going to make all of your other efforts pay off HUGE.
#9 Add Collagen to Your Coffee!
Do you know the benefits of collagen? You can read my full review here of Vitauthority's collagen powder, but wow I love this stuff. I get the flavor-less collagen and put it in my coffee in the mornings and I can't even taste it! I got softer skin among many other amazing benefits pretty quickly and now I can't live without it. They also have flavored powders as well!
#10 Work Out Your Upper Body + Be Active
Ok so here is some truth. I am seriously discouraged by my bat wing arms and the fat that bulges out of my bra. My posture in wedding photos was slightly slouchy, never realizeI wish I would've discovered this product a long time ago, but I just discovered it as I write this post. It has so many awesome reviews on Amazon, I can't wait to try it. Like I said, our upper body is exposed a lot in a wedding dress, and this product says it's shown to tone arms, back, chest, lift breasts and strengthen posture. Umm... sounds perfect for wedding preparation! It's called The UB Toner and the reviews are really cool to read about to see the results people are having.
Also, get more active! Taking 1-hour walks 3-4 times per week is actually how I lost a lot of weight after I had my babies. Plus, being active relieves stress and makes you feel better, right?
In the End
You're the BRIDE and you're going to be gorgeous no matter what you do, seriously. Don't put too much stress on looking or being perfect! We hope you found a tip in this article that spoke to you and helped, and if you didn't... you'll still be the sexiest bride to live anyway!
Happy wedding planning!
