Although weddings can be stressful, it’s important to take time out of planning and double checking your to-do list to make sure that you’re pampering yourself. In the days leading up to the big day, stress less by going to a yoga class, scheduling a message (hey you deserve it!) and of course getting a mani and pedi.

Here are some tips, tricks and trends to help you nail your wedding day look.

Do your research. If you have a go-to girl in your town, but you’re getting married in a different town/state find a manicurist with great reviews. In case of emergency (think breaking a nail or your polish chips), you will have already done your research and found a great salon you can call.
Schedule your nail appointment for a few days before your wedding day. Don’t wait for the night before, which will be busy with rehearsal dinner plans. Planing your salon day a few days in advance gives you some breathing room closer to the big day. If you’re worried about chipping, make sure to have a spare bottle in your bridal bag the day-of.
Nail Trends of 2016
1) Jeweled ring finger
Everyone will be dying to see your sparkling engagement ring along with your new wedding band. An unexpected twist is adding a little bling to your ring finger to amp up the wow factor. Ask your manicurist for small rhinestone details on the one finger to keep it special. Ask if you can take some home with you and store them in a plastic bag along with some nail glue just in case one pops off the day-of.
2) Lacey Detail
If you like a mix of trendy and classic, then this is the trend for you. Nail details are fun and surprising while the lace pattern keeps it lady-like.

Incorporating fun matalic details on your nails is the perfect way to subtlety incorporate the trend. There are plenty of ways to design your nails, but here practice is key. Make sure your metalic hue looks flawless against the base color you use for your nails.
