Nails: Long and Completely Unmanageable

First things first, ladies, let’s talk about nails. Now, we know how important it is to have the perfect set of digits, and to have them looking fierce on the big day.  Of course, your natural nails won’t do. You’re going to need to get extra long tips put on that are so unwieldy you can barely respond to a text.

If Khloe Kardashian can have 4-inch-long nails while taking care of a newborn, you can totally do this. So what if it means you’ll accidentally poke your eye out while wiping away a happy tear during the ceremony? At least your mani will look major in photos.

Lesson learned: Fashion reigns over function on the wedding day, obvi. 

Hair: Straw is for Scarecrows

Listen up, lovebirds! Your hair needs some tender loving care. Make sure your roots are fresh and your locks are neatly trimmed. We don’t want your hair looking like a haystack or a bird’s nest on the big day. And if your hair’s not super long, there are always extensions!

Because why would you wear your hair the length it actually is when you could add a foot of someone else’s hair to your wedding day updo?

Lesson learned: Prioritize hair care and unleash your inner fabulousness.

Eyebrows: The Power of Shapely Brows

No unibrows allowed, my friends! Whether you pluck, thread, wax, or perform some ancient ritual involving unicorn tears, just make sure they’re nicely shaped.

But make sure they aren’t too thin. Maybe you need to have them laminated to get that bushy boy brow look. Or better yet, get them tattooed onto your face forever!

Lesson learned: Good brows are a must for any memorable occasion.

Skin: Embrace Your Inner Glow

Everyone could use a little color boost, even if you’re naturally pale. So, if you’re on the whiter side of the spectrum, start getting some sun or go for a spray tan.

Being pasty white isn’t cute. You don’t want your skin to blend in with your white dress, do you? Make sure you’re a good shade of orange-tan to avoid ghost-bride vibes.

Lesson learned: Embrace your inner glow and tan yourself as if you just stepped off the beaches of San Tropez.

Hair: From Drab to Fab!

Ladies, it’s time for a hair revolution. Say goodbye to your plain, everyday locks and embrace a fabulous new ‘do. Whether it’s cascading curls, intricate braids, a sleek bun, or even a ponytail that reaches the heavens, let your hair become a work of art.

You’ve heard the classic Southern belle phrase, “The higher the hair, the closer to God,” right? Remember, your partner might not even recognize you at the altar, but hey, at least they’ll be in awe of your hair game.

Lesson learned: When it comes to bridal hair, go big or go home.

Lesson learned: Makeup has the power to create a whole new you.
