Preparing for the Big Day: 6 Ways to be Wedding Ready

Every now and again, someone lands in Vegas and decides to get married right then and there. But most of us start planning our weddings well in advance. The details that go into even the simplest wedding are numerous and require ample time to execute perfectly.

As the bride, you have the additional pressure to look better on that one day than you’ve ever looked in your entire life. So it’s important to start working on it months ahead of time.

At DTOX Republic, we consider ourselves lucky that we get to help so many San Diego brides-to-be get wedding ready.  If you’re a bride-to-be, then we already love you.  Below, we’ve put together a quick list of tips for preparing yourself for the Big Day.

Eat well

Everything you consume shows up somewhere on your body, whether it’s your skin, your face, your eyes, your waistline – it’s there. The better you eat, the better you’ll feel and look. And the longer you do it, the more toxins you help your body flush out.  So, what we’re saying is that while eating a salad instead of a burger the day before your wedding might help a bit, doing that for a month will have an even bigger impact.

Tip: At DTOX Republic, our Mineral Detox Body Wrap will boost your great nutritional choices by helping to flush those toxins out more quickly. This results in lost inches and smoother, tighter, softer skin!


Exercise does quadruple duty when it comes to looking your best. It helps fight stress (and when you’re wedding planning, there’s major stress, right?), improves circulation, flushes out toxins, and helps you slim down and tone up. But, of course you won’t get all those benefits in time for your wedding unless you start early enough.

Tip: At DTOC Republic, our Thermaslim fat loss treatment is the perfect accompaniment to your exercise regimen. It decreases body fat, increases your metabolism, and helps reduce cellulite. Boom! Talk about wedding ready!

Sleep 8 hours every night

During the wedding planning phase you may be tempted to stay up all night learning calligraphy for the invitation envelopes. But remember, getting enough sleep in the weeks before your wedding will do more for the wedding photos that hang on your wall for the rest of your life than some fancy loops and swirls on an envelope.

Tip: Delegate some tasks to your bridal party or your mother-in-law-to-be. Most people love helping, and you need your beauty rest.

Drink more water

Water is your best friend when it comes to slimming down and detoxifying your body. It’s also great for hydrating your skin, suppressing your appetite, and keeping belly bloat in check.

Tip: Increasing your consumption of high-water-content foods helps, too. Some examples include cucumber, iceberg lettuce, celery, radishes, tomatoes, green peppers, cauliflower, watermelon, and spinach.

Give your skin some love

Pay special attention to your skin in the months and weeks leading up to your wedding. Exfoliate and moisturize every part of your body, not just your face. And don’t forget your back.

Tip: At DTOC Republic, our body wraps and Thermaslim Treatments help soften and moisturize your skin. And for additional texture smoothing, try our cellulite busting Endermatherapy Cellulite Treatment!

Play with your hair and makeup

On the day of your wedding, you want to look special, but you don’t want to showcase a new look you haven’t tried on before. Before you say, “I don’t do smoky eyes,” or “My hair just looks better down,” spend a couple of months trying on new looks. You may be surprised by what turns out to be your winning wedding look.

Tip: Get dressed up to try play around with your hair and makeup. If your look is normally low-key, everything special you do with your hair and makeup will feel way overdone in your jeans and t-shirt.
