For many women, our wedding day is the most important day of our lives, the day we have dreamed of since we were little girls. When I married, I wanted everything to be perfect, I wanted the wedding day that everyone would be talking about for years to come – and I was lucky enough to have it. But that was 10 years ago……fast forward to 2019 and the measures that couples go to in order to have the perfect day kick everything that we did to the curb.
Weddings increasingly seem to be more than just a celebration of the love between two people. It can too often become premeditated glitz and glamour that is used to impress, and the actual meaning of marriage can get lost in all the craziness. I blame the ever-increasing pressures on society for this, but they aren’t going away anytime soon.
Fast forward the clock 10 years from when I married, and you see how much bigger and crazier all this wedding malarkey has become. The venues are bigger, the dresses are even more beautiful, forget flowers as table arrangements, why not put a tree on them! And then there are the measures we take prior to our weddings in order to look our best.
10 years ago, when I married my husband microblading, Botox, Gel nails, fillers, airbrush makeup hair extensions and Invisalign (to list a few) were not a thing – or if they were, I didn’t research very well. Tooth whitening was only just becoming a wedding thing back then – I’m making it sound like I’m a dinosaur who married 40 years ago but it’s a sign of how quickly times change, especially in the world of weddings.
We all know that women face daily pressures to look good but then a woman decides to get married and we know what comes with getting married…. photographs, videos, social media and scrutinization by guests. It’s not a surprise that all the little insecurities rear their heads and the desire to look the best version of yourself commences.
As wedding season approaches another crop of brides are currently immersed in a torturous process of self-improvement.
From the outside it seems like madness, but the pressures are almost impossible to resist especially today in this selfie and social media obsessed world – and we get that.
In Practice we see both brides and grooms ahead of their big days on a regular basis wanting that perfect smile for their wedding days and we help them to achieve their goals. We understand the importance of wanting that perfect smile for your wedding day because you’ll be wearing it not just for your wedding day but in the photos that are going to last a lifetime.
Seeing overjoyed brides and grooms ahead of their day gives us a great sense of achievement and is a massive part of why we love what we do.
If you are a budding bride or groom looking to improve your smile before your big day then look no further and pop in to see us so that we can help you to become the most beautiful version of yourself – be it Invisalign, a smile makeover or some tooth whitening – we are here to help.
