1- Capitalize on EASTER!
Wedding Party Attire
April and Easter is the best season to find adorable white dresses for flower girls as well as shoes! Believe it or not, March and April are the ONLY months out of the year that major stores carry these many choices for white, ivory, bone and even pastel colored shoes, for women AND children. Check out these amazing Easter Sales
Payless Shoes: White Hot Sales! Pastel flats & peep toes…. Found some I liked!
Then shop beautiful Girl’s Dresses from Alexa & Alexa… think Flower Girls.
And of course, what would a kids clothing deals list be without a Zulily link? They have some amazing formal clothes in just now for both boys and girls!
Candy Buffet Stock
Candy! Having a candy buffet or an elaborate dessert bar? Good luck finding this much pastel-colored candy any other time of year! Halloween is all purples and oranges, Valentines is red and pink, but Easter…. Any and all colors can be found!
Shameless Alert….for my own wedding, I did on occasion duck Into Winco’s bulk bins and take small portions of candies in all one color for my candy buffet. Ours was green and yellow themed, so I scooped out only the green wrapped peanut butter cups and others from the bulk bins…. I’m sure my Karma will get me in the end… 😉 See the rest of my candy buffet here
2- Start your BEAUTY routines!
Not that you need it of course…. But what I mean is be mindful of your wedding day when…
Being out in the Sun
When that sun comes out, so does the skin! And if you are fair skinned at all, like me, you know that when that very FIRST sun exposure or dare I say burn happens, usually in early April, those are the lines you are stuck with until September…. If you are an amazing tanner, stop reading this part now… and I envy you…. For the rest of us who don’t tan that easy remember your wedding dress straps THE REST OF THE SPRING and every single time, you go outside wear sunscreen or a complimentary neckline to your wedding dress. No bride wants a farmer’s tan…. Also, from experience, I DO NOT recommend spray tanning for your wedding. Regrettable is the word I would use or ORANGE. I do, however, and this is a temporary recommendation, only for your wedding picture sake, suggest hitting the tanning bed prior to the wedding. My husband bought me a tanning package with ten tans as a “wedding gift” in the spring, which I just went for 10 minutes every few days to get a nice base and even tone. I was then very cautious in the actual sun. Of course, you know your skin better than I do so GOOD LUCK! I sincerely hope it looks beautiful on your big day!
Cutting your hair
You should actually begin your trial runs with your hair person about now. This will give you time to discuss with him/her if it should be a bit longer, shorter or layered. I actually had my hair “cut to fit” my wedding style, meaning she cut pieces of it as she was putting it up in the final test run to make sure all the pieces hung right. I learned that the front part of my hair (forehead) actually grows faster than the rest so she even had to cut it again the morning of the wedding… I don’t advise this. I think it ruined a few of my pictures with that stupid hair going crazy… ugh… oh well. Also, practice with coloring if you do it. You don’t want to grow out, but you also don’t want that fresh extreme color either. Have your wedding day color on when you have you make up trial too!
Whitening your Teeth
You’ll want to start doing this gradually soon. That way you don’t shock your teeth with a 10-day treatment. It might get whiter and brighter than you want! I suggest the Crest Whitestrips which you can buy almost anywhere.
