Before heading to the altar you’re in for a few hours of hair curling, mascara applying and beauty blending. Yes, a lot of work will go into transforming you into a beautiful, blushing bride, but hey, you can’t rush art. While your BFFs will be a great source of entertainment while you get dolled up, you’ll need a few more things to get the pre-wedding party started. Two essentials? A bottle of bubbly and a killer getting ready playlist. Remember, the more songs you can sing into a hairbrush to, the better.
