Even in the midst of the excitement of getting married, there are a few things that neither a bride nor groom should forget. Let`s give them the quick once over.Dental hygiene:
If you think you teeth could do with a bit of whitening - now is the time to do it. The ideal time to do it is a week before D-day. Yellow or discoloured teeth can do a lot to mar the radiance of the blushing bride or the grinning groom.
After you`ve whitened your teeth, avoid drinking black coffee, tea, red wine - they all stain your teeth.
Pay double attention to your breath. Besides visiting your dentist, make sure you have some cloves or any other kind of mouth freshener ready at hand - all through the day.
If your fillings or crowns or anything else is beginning to worry you - don`t put it off until after the wedding. No matter how hard pressed for time you are - make time for your dentist.
Things are bound to go wrong and arguments will keep popping up. Accept it as a part of the deal - and smile it away.
You`ll be amazed at the kind of comments a bride has to put up with. Remember you always have a choice not to let it worry you.
Watching your diet is a good way to de-stress. Certain kinds of foods just trigger you off.
Avoid caffeine to keep your stress levels down. The good feeling it gives you is very temporary.
Eat more wholegrain foods with plenty of fruits and vegetables to keep your energy level up.
Drink plenty of water. It keeps you hydrated and glowing.
A slouching bride is a no - no. It`s absolutely unacceptable. You need to work at holding your tummy in, chest out and shoulders well back. At the same time, there is no need to look like a General inspecting his troops.
Make sure you get adequate sleep before the wedding. Or sheer fatigue will have you drooping.
Work out regularly before and after your wedding. Getting married is no reason to neglect your exercise regimen.
