Tangle Teezer– So these slip in your bag, easy hair brushes are amazing at getting even the toughest of knots out. Use one after washing your hair on your big day to get your bonce knot free, before your hairdresser gets styling.
Kirby Grips– Well, these are always handy and even if you have a hairdresser to sort your do on the day, it’s always handy to have these little friends on you in case part of your hair unexpectedly comes loose from your ‘up do’.
Body Moisturiser- Nothing makes you feel more gorgeously groomed than moisturiser on silky, recently waxed legs. A great way to start your day feeling fabulous.Photo Credit: Pink by Victoria’s Secret
A lounge Outfit– While you and your bridesmaids are getting ready, you want to be wearing something comfy. My favourites are these ‘Pink’ by Victoria’s Secret lounge bottoms which I would pair with a vest top. These lounge pants are £49.96 for those of you interested, so you can relax in your comfiest get up, before spending the rest of the day in your wedding dress. Plus, they’re patterned which is perfect for disguising those pesky make up spillages were all guilty of.
Anti-Blister Stick– We’ve all been there, our shoes seem fairly comfy and then out of nowhere up pops an unsightly painful blister. Pre-empt the pain and arm yourself with a blister stick, easy to apply, glides on and leaves you blister free all day long. Perfect preparation for your first dance.
