More and more brides-to-be are turning to cosmetic surgery and medical aesthetics treatments before their big day.
According to a survey of 5,000 brides by confetti.co.uk, many brides are now spending more on cosmetic surgery and non-invasive treatments than a wedding dress.
While it’s natural to want to look at your best on your wedding day – one of the most important days of your life – brides are increasingly turning to cosmetic procedures to help boost their confidence in their appearance.
The survey highlights that 10% of brides have spent money on Botox injections or breast enlargements before their big day. And 51% would pay £750 per tooth for veneers.
This so-called Bridalplasty is said to have been fuelled by last year’s royal wedding.
Confetti wedding expert Kate Thompson said: “Bridalplasty is fast becoming a modern extension of the French manicure for brides-to-be. It may be largely down to the vision of beauty Kate and Pippa Middleton wowed us all with last year.
“For a great many modern brides, the wedding becomes a catalyst for those who have something that bothers them about their appearance. They may have been able to live with wonky teeth for the last 20 years but now their everlasting wedding photos are looming, those wonky teeth suddenly take on a new importance.”
Among the most popular pre-wedding cosmetic treatments are hand lifts, for those all-important close-up snaps of the wedding rings. Dermal fillers and Botox treatments, for smoothing the appearance of wrinkles, and tooth veneers are the most popular non-invasive aesthetic options for brides.
Plus, if the current trend for men to use Botox injections for business is anything to go by, there’s a chance grooms will soon be joining brides at cosmetic surgery clinics!
For brides, and grooms, contemplating cosmetic procedures for their big day, information is vital. Make sure you speak to an aesthetic doctor before going ahead with the treatment, as you need to make sure the treatment is the right one for you.
