The Perfect Bridal Beauty Guide

Bridal experts explain how to plan ahead to ensure your day is picture perfect -- no matter what!

'Trial Run'

Seccuro tells WebMD that every bride should make certain to get a "trial run" hairdo and makeup session well before the big day.

"One of the most frustrating feelings is walking out of a salon on your wedding day feeling like you don't look like yourself," says Seccuro. To avoid those wedding-day tears, she advises having a hair and makeup "dress rehearsal" at least two weeks prior to your wedding, and make sure you bring your headpiece or facsimile to the hairdresser. Then, she says, take a digital picture to really see how you look.

"You'd be surprised how different something can look in a photograph, so it's always a good idea to check," says Seccuro.

The overall best advice, say our experts: Be yourself -- and you'll be beautiful.

Says Rogers: "It's you he asked to marry him, and it's you he wants to see at the altar."
