Our Grand Canyon Wedding

Almost every girl I know has a perfect wedding in mind. Either it was inspired by a cheesy romantic Hollywood movie, or by someone on Facebook. But every girl has a wedding in mind, where everything is perfect – right from the people, to the ceremony, to her dress, to her hair, and right uptil the point she says I DO and beyond ๐Ÿ™‚ Well needless to say, I got mine! And there are probably not enough words in the dictionary to explain how magical and beautiful it was. And what made it all absolutely wonderful for me was that I was marrying my best friend and the guy of my dreams! ๐Ÿ™‚

We had an intimate ceremony on August 16th, 2013, at one of the seven wonders of the world – The Grand Canyon! Yes, it was a crazy awesome idea. And guess what, we planned and executed the whole thing in a matter of a month and a half! That’s all it took, and boy was it low stress! ๐Ÿ™‚ And thanks to my awesome husband who made every little step of the way seem like a piece of cake ๐Ÿ™‚ and my job was just to be happy and look pretty the whole time ๐Ÿ™‚

But it wasn’t all so very easy. Brides have an extremely hard time even looking good on the biggest day of their lives. Taking that big step makes you feel giddy with happiness on one end, but makes you nervous and anxious on the other. So here were the few things I did about a week before my wedding:

  • Ate very clean. Went crazy on fruits. That helped with bloating issues.
  • Drank plenty of water all day long. That kept the acne issues at bay.
  • Consumed low sodium diet. Helped with water retention issues.
  • Worked out twice a day – 30 minutes in the morning, 30 minutes in the evening.
  • Most importantly – RELAXED! Watched feel good movies. Hung out with my girlfriends. Consumed lots of hot tea.

The night before the wedding I made it a point to curb the urge to party, and took a hot bath and went to bed early. It made a huge difference the next day when I woke up fresh as a daisy ready to rock the day! ๐Ÿ™‚

So taking small steps before your big day, can make all the difference in how awesome the day goes. I am no expert, but certainly the steps I took worked for me.

Hope this helps anyone whose approaching a big day in their lives! ๐Ÿ™‚ ALL THE VERY BEST!
