How to Get Your Perfect Wedding Day Smile

by Grace Murphy

Getting the perfect wedding day smile is something that many brides worry about. We want the perfect excited smile as we reach our partner after our walk down the aisle. We want our smile to show our guests what a fantastic day we’re having, and how grateful we are to share it with them. Perhaps most of all, we want the perfect bright smile in our wedding photographs, so that when we look back in the years to come, we’ll know that it was the happiest day of our lives, and we’ll smile again. 

But, we’re not all very good at smiling. Many of us are self-conscious about our smiles. We worry about how we look, our teeth and our lips. Often, even those of us that smile all of the time, naturally and without worry, find that as soon as someone says “smile” or points a camera at us, we’ve got no idea what we’re supposed to do with our mouths. We overthink it, and quite suddenly, we’ve got no idea how to smile, where to look, and what to do with the rest of our bodies. Smiling can be awkward, which certainly isn’t something that you want on your wedding day. So, let’s take a look at some of the ways that you can perfect your wedding day smile.

Make time for dental work

The main reason that we worry about our smiles is our teeth. If yours aren’t perfect, are decayed, or have been damaged, you might not want to show them. But, trying to hide your teeth will make your smile look unnatural and forced. Before the big day, give yourself plenty of time to visit a dentist such as Myra Dental for any treatments that you might want. Myra Oral Medicine Dental clinic is a dental centre based in Turkey offering the very best in dental treatment, including veneers, to help you achieve the perfect smile in time for your wedding. Why not turn your visit there to a fun weekend away with your partner ahead of your wedding day? Just make sure you factor in recovery times when booking appointments.

Get your diet right

Red wine, coffee, tobacco, tea, soy sauce and balsamic vinegar can all stain your teeth. Find a whitening toothpaste to try to minimise any damage that’s already been done, then ban these things from your diet in the weeks before your wedding day.

Good oral hygiene habits

Get into the best toothbrushing habits of your life. Brushing twice a day, for two minutes, paying attention to every area of your mouth before flossing.

Find the right lipstick

Your teeth are an important part of your smile, but so is your lipstick. You don’t want to spend your wedding day reapplying for photos, or worrying that it’s on your teeth, so find something long-lasting and smooth, that complements your skin tone, and looks natural and radiant.

Forget about it

Once you’ve fixed any issues with your teeth, done everything you can to protect them and found the right lipstick, the best thing that you can do for your smile when the big day arrives is forget about it. It’s often overthinking that creates an awkward pose. So, let yourself be happy, enjoy the day, and try not to worry.

Knowing that you’ve done everything you can should help you to feel more confident and happier about your smile. Hopefully, when the day comes, you’ll be that happy that it will shine through in your smile, and certainly in your eyes.

Have a pre-wedding photo shoot

Organise a pre-wedding photo shoot with your photographer at your wedding venue. This will give you the opportunity to get to know your photographer and feel more comfortable in front of them. It will also give your wedding photographer a chance to scout out good photograph opportunities if they have not visited your venue before and also give them a chance to find out more about you so they'll be able to capture more of your personalities in your wedding day photos.
