The pre-wedding days are the busiest days in your life. Some of us will have ample time for wedding preparations but in some cases it’s ‘chat mangni pat byah'(Hindi phrase used where marriage is done in a hurry-burry ) . In most cases, even though we have enough time for preparation, the whole preparation starts only a few days before marriage.
     In between the preparations one thing you should not forget is grooming and beautification of both bride and groom. On the wedding day beauticians will do their bit but we should keep in mind a few things.Below are few tips which would help you look better on the wedding day. It’s for both bride and groom 😉 😉
  • Even though you have a thousand things to do, find time to have your meals on time. Proper meals and nutrients glow your skin
  • Have proper sleep. A good sleep of minimum seven hours will help you vanish your dark circles (experience from my then fiancé now husband 😉 )
  • Keep your mind tension free and take less stress as possible. Stress and tension will spoil your health and take away glow from your face
  • Do not wait for last minute to go to parlor, start the pre-wedding sessions of grooming which starts around 2 months before marriage.
  • Visit you dentist for a perfect smile on your wedding album 😀
  • Try to go for a body massage and spa which will sooth your skin and mind.
  • Avoid any event where you have to expose to sunlight for a long time. You will not look good on your wedding in tanned skin :/

  • Do not jump into conclusions.

When you meet someone for the first time, it is not necessary that you get to know about that person. Go with an open mind and a positive attitude. Try to see if the person is comfortable speaking to you, her likes, dislikes etc. On the first meeting, plan for the next date also if possible.

  •  No False Promises:

Sometimes it happens that we fall in love with a person at the first sight itself, then we forgets about ourselves. The very next moment onward, every action will be to impress that person. This means, there is a probability where we hide things or habits from the person because she doesn’t like it. Do not do this, in case if you have a habit which you think you can leave, tell that. Do not hide anything.

  •  Choosing the Right Place

While arranging the first meeting, arrange it somewhere silent. Not too loud. Mostly the boy and boy’s family goes to the girls house. There the first meeting happens. Most of us live far away from our home and hence it happens that family meets the girl/girl’s family first and then the guy meets the girl. Choose a place with good ambiance, a bit silent, Not too crowded. Somewhere you can sit and talk without disturbance.

  •  Be Calm:

There will be loads of excitement, curiosity & tension while meeting for first time. Be calm, composed and make the other person comfortable. Now, this ain’t the beginning of a Love story, this is the initial step for marriage. Here you may not get a chance for date and go out a lot. Some families are a bit more conservative which means that there are Fewer chances of boy meeting girl multiple times or going on date. Remember, girls are sensitive and mostly a bit worried about the first meeting. So behave normal, be normal and remember, first impression is the  best impression.  Do not send the wrong signal by planning a lot of imaginary things in the first date itself.
