Somehow we don’t believe others when we’re told we’re beautiful… do we? We readily accept a criticism. Real or imagined. But never a compliment.

What is beauty? Isn’t it… what we’d like to look like? Isn’t it whatever we don’t have? If I have healthy hair and big eyes – then true beauty must reside in the oval face that I don’t have.

And even my hair and eyes pale in comparison to some other girls. For each positive thing  about ourselves, we quickly think of others who are even better than us.

But we certainly want to shut the lights out on our wedding day.

If beauty can be manufactured… isn’t it totally worth a little sacrifice? Unfortunately, if we fall into thinking that we aren’t beautiful, we sometimes put our entire disposable income – give or take a little debt – on the line, pay the price in self-respect, and sometimes even compromise our health.

Isn’t there another way?

Even if you do nothing special – say, you show up wearing your street clothes and some basic makeup (or no makeup at all) – it’s your wedding day, you’re loved, happy and surrounded by people who care about you. Everyone will bask in the glow of your warmth and you’ll be the most beautiful girl in the room!

Of course, we DO want you to look your best on your wedding day. Here’s the thing, though: we don’t want you to hide and cover up your appearance. We want to celebrate and enhance the natural beauty that you are.
