If you have a friend or loved one that will be attending a big event soon, be it a school event, a wedding, or anything in between, they might want and need some help with getting ready. Especially if they’re going to be getting photos taken and want to remember this night for the rest of their lives, spending a decent amount of time getting prepared for the evening to look and feel confident can make a huge difference.
To help you be ready for all that this preparation might entail, here are three tips for helping someone get ready for a big event.
Make A Day Of It
For a big event that your loved one is going to want to take their time getting ready for, it can be fun to make their entire day about getting ready for this event. Try to plan things all throughout the day so that they can feel ready and excited about what’s coming up for them later in the evening.
As part of your day, you might want to do things like making sure their outfit is right for them and that you can find everything they need in their walk-in wardrobe, that you put on music that will help to pump them up or put them at ease, that their skin and hair is ready for the application of product, and that they have a plan for things like makeup and accessories.
Encourage Them To Eat Well
When a big event is coming up, how you prepare your body can make or break how you end up feeling at the actual event. So to help your loved one to feel their best, you should help to encourage them to eat well in the days and hours leading up to the event.
As a general rule, it’s best to avoid foods with a lot of salt or drinks that contain alcohol. Both of these things can make someone feel bloated, which can cause them not to feel their best as they get closer to the time of their event.
Help Them Keep Their Nerves In Check
With a big event on the horizon, it’s normal for some people to feel very nervous, especially if they are going to be having a lot of attention on them. Knowing this, part of helping your loved one get ready for this event should include helping them to keep their nerves in check. Turning on some soothing music, doing breathing techniques, and other things to help them relax and take their mind off of the stress of the event can all be very helpful.
If you have a friend who’s got a big event coming up, consider using the tips mentioned above to help them spend the day getting ready for this night to remember. They will surely appreciate your sincerity and consider all of your hard work as a part of their very special day. You might even be part of their anniversary celebrations in the coming years!
