Babushka's Bridal Beauty 101

This post is sponsored by Dove® ClearTone™ Deodorant - designed to visibly reduce underarm dark marks and even skin tone.

Sweetie and I set a concrete date for our wedding. Que? JU SO FONII!! Ok si, I'll be 50 and this will be my third wedding, but I still intend to celebrate the occassion and plan to be a very happy bride on the big day.  As we say in buen Cubano- "Mas sabe el diablo por viejo que por diablo."  The devil knows more because he's old than because he's the devil. In other words, experience counts more than anything else, so let BB's aforementioned qualifications help so you don't have a devil of a time on your big day.

First of all- BREATHE!!  You'd be amazed how many brides forget to do this.  Between the tighness of their gowns and their nerves, the phenomenon of blacked out brides is very common.

Second- speaking of nerves... what hasn't been done by now is out of your hands so chillax!!  You can only be in charge of yourself, and if you can't laugh of yourself, you're taking life way too seriously. Have something/someone on hand that always makes you laugh.

Third- Think only of the moment. What you truly have is now, and most importantly the NOW of the love you feel.  There are no guarantees in life, so cherish and fully enjoy the reason for the celebration.  The best decoration in any wedding is the  love radiating from the couple when they look into each other's eyes.

Only three steps.  Of course you may have to remind yourself of them constantly all through the day, but they're short so you can write them on a 3x5.  And please, sobretodo, never omit number one, 'cause without that there's no way you'll be able to do the other two. 

; )

Be happy my beautiful brides, the moment is yours.

P.S.  Amongst the swag given to BB during Hispanicize were samples of Dove ClearTone deodorant.  I was very impressed by the product and happily applied to write this for them.
