With the stress of planning a wedding, it is no wonder that a lady's stress can show up on her face. Getting your skin picture perfect for your wedding isn't as hard as it may seem. We're all inundated with information about new-age cleansers, toners, astringents, primers and incredible variations of "age-friendly" makeup; however, in the midst of a whirlwind of products and advertisements there are a couple tips that have stood the test of time. On a daily basis we are all battling breakouts, dryness, irritation, sun damage and most of us are even attempting to slow the aging process on our skin. Shannon Caldwell, of Shannon Caldwell/Something-You Makeup Artistry, and Miss Bliss swear by their Clarisonic (as used in moderation under an aesthetician's or dermatologist's care) while others swear by salicylic-acid treatments. Whatever the case, it is important to know that every person's skin is different, our skin cells are constantly shedding and being rejuvenated by omitting free radicals. So steer clear of being seen with a face in distress on your wedding day. Shannon Caldwell and Miss Bliss can ease your frusterations with valuable tips on how to start taking care of your skin, now.

In accordance with the message of our "Before I Do" Bridal Makeover (which ends TOMORROW), we reached out to renown dietician Ryan Reist this morning to provide brides (and grooms) some guidance on how to feel healthier as their wedding day approaches. There is a plethora of information out there from validated and well-informed trainers and nutritionists to the somewhat plausible WebMB and google search engines, it is hard to get a specific plan that is tailored to your body and metabolism. By garnering information from multiple sources it can be easier to funnel all that knowledge and execute a self-made workout regimen yourself. Reist discusses the simple things one can do to get him/her started on a journey to a healthier lifestlye.
Texas Wedding Guide presents “Before I Do”, a bridal contest about inner beauty and self-fulfillment. Today, on August 31st, The Texas Wedding Guide will begin accepting submissions and launching its campaign to find a deserving bride-to-be and her mother figure and help guide them on a journey to a healthier life before the bride says “I do” at the alter, and after. With crash dieting and quick-fix solutions to lifelong problems becoming the trend, “Before I Do” renounces this concept and instead is an event meant to influence the winning bride-to-be and her mother figure in renewing their beauty from the inside out in a healthy, lifelong way.
How crucial is a healthy body and healthy mind during the time of planning for your wedding?
