Beauty Isn’t Frivolous


Love is about the inner beauty, the meshing of two personalities that complete each other to their fullest form. The need to feel beautiful on your wedding day is not frivolous. It’s just as important as sending your invitations out on time, finding the perfect wedding day location, and choosing the right person to stand next to you. The photos taken at your wedding are the tokens to this sacred day. And, if that giant zit doesn’t go away soon, that is all you are going to be staring at…Photoshop only goes so far.

With weddings being planned further in advance, there is no need to fret! Aside from scheduling your hair appointment and pedicure before the big day, here are some other ways to make you feel flawless and confident on what is sure to be the best day of your life.

Teeth Whitening

The saying “a picture is worth a thousand words,” rings true right alongside the wedding bells. There is no need for those thousand words to be reminiscent to your late night coffee binges or slight nicotine addiction when you see your yellow-tinted smile. Getting your teeth whitened is relatively inexpensive and will make all the difference on your wedding day. Grand Dental located in Minneapolis has both in-office and take home whitening care. Grand Dental is proud to have the highest customer care that helps in procuring overall health and self-esteem.

Hair Removal

Unwanted hair can cause anyone to become anxious. Your wedding day is no time to be paranoid about guests scaling you up and eyeing that peach fuzz on your upper lip that you have been meaning to take care of. The industry of hair removal is growing, and has made a large take-off in the wedding world. No+Vello is an international hair removal company with a location in Uptown Minneapolis.

No+Vello uses IPL (Intense Pulsed Light), an innovative, reliable and safe method of removing unwanted hair. It is the most effective and least painful method among other hair removal techniques and gentler on the skin while being more versatile in treating a broader range of skin tones and hair colors with better results. The removal process takes place with 6-8 sessions lasting no more than an hour and sometimes less than 15 minutes for small areas such as the upper lip or chin.

“We are still young so we haven’t seen very much of it yet, but weddings are definitely something we are exploring,” said Emmanuelle Hardy, owner of No+Vello. “In fact we are opening up a new location, which is going to be doing a joint deal.”

The space they will be moving into has a large area for weddings to take place. When the deal finalizes No+Vello is going to have a package discount along with the wedding space.

“I think it will be a really great addition to our company,” Hardy said.

Weight Loss

It comes as no surprise that one of the first things on people’s minds when approaching a wedding is how their body is going to look in that dress or suit, not to mention the honeymoon. Instead of looking for a dramatic “cleanse” of only juice and water for two weeks, try going for something healthier, and a method that is proven to show results.

Medifast is a weight loss tool that supplies you with pre-portioned meals that “look good and taste even better.” These meals are created to be hearty and healthy so that you aren’t rummaging through your cabinet 20 minutes later looking for a snack. The meals are so quick and easy to prepare that you won’t have any excuse not to be eating healthy.

“We design a diet that is appropriate to their health and lifestyle,” Medifast Center Director Gina Carlson said. “Most people come us about 6 months prior to the wedding, wanting to lose 30-50 pounds.”

This is a program that works quickly but isn’t unhealthy for the participants.

“In about 6 or 7 weeks you can lose 20 pounds,” Carlson said.

Crash dieting doesn’t work for anyone. A weight loss plan like Medifast is a great way to see results quickly, but to do it in a healthy way.

Body Contouring

Feeling comfortable in your own skin on your wedding day is the recipe for a confident couple. Don’t go altering your dress to cover up the big scar on your knee, or tailoring your suit in just a way to hide your shape. Body contouring is a virtually pain-free procedure that can eliminate those things about your body that make you feel less like yourself. The Metropolitan Clinic located in Edina is a wellness clinic seeking to give all clients the benefits the tagline insinuates, “Look better, Be better, Feel better.” They achieve this through a holistic philosophy of health and wellness.

Inner beauty is the curator of a wedding, but everyone deserves to feel perfect on this day.
