Top reasons people are choosing a wedding smile makeover

Although down to the individual couple themselves, many prospective to-be-weds now see a wedding smile makeover as a fundamental step in the journey up the aisle. 

You’ll never have so many pictures of yourself taken in one day

Most newlyweds can expect to receive between 800-1,500 photographs from their chosen photographer after their wedding day. 

And that’s before you factor in informal pictures from snap-happy guests and wedding videography. 

Even with professional editing, a skilled photographer won’t be able to do much more than whiten or brighten smiles and remove large imperfections in a few key images – thanks to the limitations of editing software and the amount of time it takes to touch up individual images. 

For this reason, if you aren’t happy with your smile, you could spend hundreds or even thousands of pounds on pictures you are unhappy with – that you can’t retake. 

And with weddings being one of the most popular topics to share on social media, these photographs will be all over the internet within hours of you tying the knot. 


Wedding preparation is months in the making 

Wedding preparation is also much more important than it used to be. 

Beauty giant Clarins reported that some brides spent between £100-£300 on beauty treatments in the run-up to their big day – and that younger brides spent more than their older counterparts. 

This finding was also reported by Bridebook, who found that as well as hair and make-up on the day, popular pre-wedding treatments included:

  • Nails 
  • Tanning 
  • Teeth whitening 

Experts suggest that this bump in spending is to boost the self-confidence of the wedding party – standing up in front of your congregation can be nerve-wracking indeed – and also to look as good as possible in wedding pictures and videos.

People use weddings as the catalyst for self-improvement 

Ever wondered why the main meal served at weddings is called a wedding breakfast? 

Historically, the congregation and couple would have fasted until after the wedding service, making it the literal first meal of the day. 

In more modern times, as the first meal a new couple shares, the wedding breakfast has become symbolic of the fresh start and a new chapter in the relationship. 

This idea of new beginnings is a great stimulus for self-improvement, giving the newlyweds the opportunity to start as they mean to go on and enter their new chapter looking and feeling their best.
