This is a PSA for anyone who is thinking about getting Botox before their wedding. I promise you, I am not going to go off on how you should be perfectly content with you natural beauty and how plastic surgery is a sin or whatever. I come from a town where girls get nose jobs for their 16th birthdays OK- let’s get real. I’m all for a little enhancement here, a little nip and tuck there, trust me. I just want you to be smart about it. So, what I am going to say is that you can fine tune yourself before your wedding, but you don’t have to walk down the aisle looking like Mickey Rourke in order to be happy.
The problem is that people aren’t doing their research and end up having their Botox done way too close to their big day, turning them into a stone face stunner- any Steve Austin fans? Not only will the plumper not have enough time to settle, but if it is your first time, you might even have an allergic reaction. Remember that episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians where Kim has an allergic reaction to her fillers, and ended up looking like the creature from the black lagoon? #Notcute. Just like a spray tan or a facial, you are going to want to keep a buffer zone between the injections and the big day.
Another pandemic I have been seeing a lot is brides going under the knife before saying “I do”. Now I know that this is the day you have been dreaming about your entire life but take caution. Yes, this is probably going to be the most photographed you have ever been and you want to look your absolute best, but that doesn’t mean you have to pull a Hannibal Lecter and walk down the aisle with someone else's face. Many people are happy with their plastic surgery outcomes, but there is always the chance of hating the way your new breasts make your strapless gown look or just adjusting to a completely different profile. You don’t want to get your wedding pictures and wonder who is standing next to your new spouse.
Like I said before, do what you want. If that includes a full body makeover or just some Juvederm, so be it. All I am saying is, just be smart about it. If you are interested in fillers, do your research. If you decided to go under the knife, find a surgeon that you trust and understands your wants. And most importantly, make the decision because YOU want to, not because you think this is how you SHOULD look on your wedding day.
