With this clever idea, a cartoon couple holds on to a string of “balloons.” The balloons are actually small circles your guests sign and then glue to the strings.

Once the guests have all signed the pieces, they can be put together to create a hanging or kept apart in a memory box. It’s an adorable way to remember your loved ones who celebrated your big day with you.

Vase Guest Book Alternative

This is another really clever idea that leaves you with a memento that can actually be used around your home. Rather than having guests sign a book, you get them to use a Sharpie marker and sign a vase.

Get Plenty of Sleep

In the days leading up to the wedding, you’re likely to be stressed, but you should not let it interfere with your sleep. Getting 7 to 8 hours of sleep will keep you looking refreshed and will help you avoid dark circles and lines of fatigue.

Exfoliate 2 Days before the Big Day

Use your favorite scrub to exfoliate 1-2 days before the big day. This will slough away dead skin and make you look luminous. It’s a great way to get that “vibrant” look you want for your wedding.

Ice Your Face

Wait…what? That’s right – the day of your wedding, before you get your makeup on, ice your face. Simply rub your entire face with ice or submerge your face in ice water for as long as you can stand it. This will tighten your pores and give you a youthful, beautiful glow.

Try out the tips and see for yourself what a difference they make! Here’s to looking your best.

Don’t forget the most important thing, this is your day, so enjoy it!

1. Wedding Veil Weights

Outdoor weddings are beautiful, but even with the slightest breeze, your veil can go flying this way and that. This can be quite troublesome for pictures or when it comes time to say your vows. The solution: wedding veil weights. These little items are created to be decorative so they simply look like embellishments but they will keep your veil where it should be.

Simply cut out a small circle (making sure you have at least a few bubbles intact) and slip the stem of the flower through the center of the circle. Voila – your blossom will stay afloat!
