Wedding Preparation: Beauty Plan

August is coming, and it is coming fast! I still have so much to do! We are having our wedding shower in May (God willing), which I am so excited for. My Maid of Honor has to keep telling me to stay out of it and it’ll be kind of a surprise. But I can’t help it, what are the invites going to look like, what about food, what about decorations and music!? I feel like in order for it to be right I have to do it myself (this is something that I definitely have to work on, letting go and just relaxing).
But I do have a list of things that I want to do for myself before the wedding so that I am wedding ready! I’ve scowered the internet for beauty plans and some are so daunting, laser hair removal, meet with a personal trainer, going to a dermatologist. (Do I really need to do those things??) Maybe that works for most brides but I’m going to pass on that and make my own list.
Fitness
So I have not been meeting with a personal trainer but I have been working out, not really for the wedding though. I’m in Army ROTC and there are certain goals and standards that I am trying to maintain. So essentially I am trying to run a lot and lift weights. Of course, this is a plus for my wedding day but it’s not necessarily what I am doing it for.
I do not think a personal trainer is necessary UNLESS you have no idea what you’re doing in the gym and you need guidance. The only thing that I have to keep doing for myself is PUSH MYSELF. I can go several days straight working out but if I miss one day…. it goes all downhill! Does that happen to you too?
So my goal is to go to the gym and work out everyday. (I know, it’s crazy)

Hair
My hair is so beautiful but for some reason it has been looking so dead lately. So, I am determined to make sure my hair looks amazing before the wedding. I plan on going to the salon and getting it cut soon, I have 6 months until the wedding so right now is perfect timing. I will be going for a natural look for the wedding, nothing to crazy, but I do want it to look healthy.
I was thinking of something like this: (but we’ll see what I end up with!)

Face
I do face masks every so often. But there is a local place here in Georgia that I will share shortly that offers amazing facials. Each salon offers different facials and specialize in different areas. I have no idea what kind of facial I’m going to get and honestly I am so dumb when it comes to this stuff. The kinds of facials there are innumerable. One of the local places here offers dual exfoliation peels which sound interesting.
If you have any advice or tips on what facials to get, please let me know!
Teeth
Let me tell you guys a little secret of mine, I hate my teeth. This has been something that I have ALWAYS been self conscious about. I have one tooth that is slightly unaligned with the rest of my teeth and they are slightly discolored. They’re not the worst ever, but to me they could be so much better. So getting my teeth whitened is a MUST.
Luckily, there is an awesome dental group here in Metro-Atlanta, Metro Decatur Dental Group PC. They provide services such as teeth whitening and dental fillings. They have a wonderful team there at the dental group, who are all so passionate about their work. Dr. Simms himself is passionate about increasing the longevity of his patients teeth.
This dental group also has great ratings, which is always a great thing, especially when so many people are terrified of going to the dentist. I love reading reviews of places and listening to what people liked and what they didn’t like. An amazing thing about this group is that the clients love them and that Dr. Simms is known for his gentle demeanor, which puts his clients at ease. If you are looking for a dentist in the Metro-Atlanta area, maybe you should go check out Metro Decatur Dentist Group PC!

If you know of any other things to do to prepare for the wedding please share! I would love to hear all about them! read more

How we stay connected

       Currently Jacob and I are working on a semi-long distance relationship, given, we do see each other on the weekends, but even that is difficult. It’s really hard, at least for me, to go on throughout the week without him. But we have come up with some ways to stay connected throughout this distance and I’m going to share them with you! read more

DIY Maid of Honor Proposal

Happy Sunday!
Just so you guys are updated, I finally bought my wedding dress! Given, I wasn’t really looking for a dress, it just happened!

I was beyond ecstatic! But this post is all about the maid of honor proposal. My sister is my maid of honor and she told me “You have to ask me to be your maid of honor in a cute way”, and honestly I didn’t want to! She already knew she was going to take that role so why do it? But being the loving, kind person I am I decided to do it anyway and I also don’t want to miss out on all things wedding!

It contained:

The box and tissue paper were from Michael’s, it was the easiest thing to put together. She loved it and I loved it also because I didn’t just go out and buy a proposal box. It means more to me that I’m actually doing wedding stuff myself.
If you have any wedding tips and advice I’d love to hear all about it!
I hope you guys have a great Sunday!
Love,
