Taking advantage of expert advice whenever possible can help ease the pressure of preparation so everything goes smoothly on your wedding day.
January 19, 2005 - Every detail counts when planning a wedding — from the dress to the flowers right down to your smile.

Taking advantage of expert advice whenever possible can help ease the pressure of preparation.

Expert wedding planners recommend these helpful beauty tips to get you ready for your big day:

Eye "do." Late nights and teary moments can take their toll on your eyes. If you're greeted by swollen, puffy lids and redness on the morning of your wedding, cover your eyes with hot tea bags and elevate your feet-this curbs the blood flow.

Lip service. Prep your pucker: Start by smoothing away cracks and creases with a moisturizing lip balm containing vitamin E. You also can exfoliate lips with a warm toothbrush or fine-grained scrub. Keep in mind that certain shades of lipstick can accentuate stained or yellow teeth, so stick to soft pinks or natural-looking reds to make your teeth look whiter.

Smile secrets. Your wedding day is a smile marathon, so your teeth should be ready to go. To get them a gleaming white that matches your dress, try whitening strips — the ultimate bridal beauty secret — and have a noticeably whiter smile in just two weeks. How such strips work is simple: The system uses clear, flexible strips coated with a whitening gel that sticks to your teeth. They are worn twice a day for 30 minutes at a time and can help whiten smiles as you put the finishing touches on your wedding. They're so easy to use, you can even wear them during fittings and appointments.

Hair "do's." Consult a professional and choose a hairstyle that complements the shape of your face. Try it with your headpiece or veil in advance, and remember that your wedding day is not the time for a radical change.

Balancing act. Your face shape and veil must work together for your overall look. To balance the two, a good rule of thumb is "opposites attract." For example, if your face is oblong, complement it with a bit of width by choosing a fuller veil paired with a wide tiara. Likewise, you can help to narrow a rounder face by going with a veil that falls along the side of the face.
