The Best Bridal Beauty DIY to Pamper and Relax

An acquaintance recently betrayed their complete unfamiliarity of the wedding planning world when they told me, “yeah, but you can relax after you get engaged, right?” I set them straight once I finished laughing hysterically, but the truth is that most brides enter stress mode from the minute the post-engagement glow fades. To help make wedding planning just a little bit more enjoyable, I’ve rounded up my favorite bridal beauty DIY projects to pamper and relax!

Champagne is, of course, a must.DIY Nail Polish Bar | Shutter Nonsense Photography and Something Turquoise | The Best Bridal Beauty DIY Projects to Pamper and Relax after Saying Yes!
