Bride seeks hair and makeup guru for the big day
Of all the high hopes and potentially unrealistic expectations that a bride has concerning her wedding day, the desire to look like the most obscenely beautiful version of oneself tops my list. At the risk of coming across as vapid and shallow, I not so secretly fantasize of a super dramatic hush rushing across the room as I walk down the aisle followed by whispers of “SHE LOOKS AMAZING.” I warned you that this was pretty vacuous. Of course, there are the long-term self-improvements that many brides make leading up to their big day, whether it be joining a gym, kicking a bad habit to the curb or paying visits to a “special” doctor. And while I am all for taking steps to better yourself in the long run, my impatient inner toddler is seeking something a little more instantly gratifying.
