Keep it real. Don’t use your wedding day as a chance to experiment. Leave that to Lady Gaga or Katy Perry. He chose you because of you, not because you have 20 layers of makeup
Hit the spa. Treat yourself to a spa regimen – take a nice and relaxing bath, maybe a massage to help rid you of the stress
