Useful Hacks If You Fall Sick On Your Wedding Day?!
What could be your worst wedding nightmare?
Your wedding dress refuses to fit, the priest arriving late at the mandap, you have an outdoor wedding and it begins to rain or Sharma Uncle dancing away to glory after downing some drinks at your reception? Embarrassing eh?!
While all this is fixable, nothing gets more disastrous than falling sick on your wedding day. Getting sick before your wedding or catching a cold, flu or diarrhoea on the wedding day can pierce a dagger in the hearts of our lovely brides.
So, what should you do if your throat feels a little itchy or you hear a ghastly rumble in your tummy? Read on as we give you some temporary quick fixes.
Situation: You wake up with the sniffles or pale lips or a red face
Quick Fix: Makeup, makeup, makeup!
If you have the sniffles, an over the counter medication can help, but a quick fix to make the symptoms less visible on your face – make, make-up your best friend. Similarly, pale lips can be covered with lip glosses and if you have a red face apply a creamy bronzer, it will offset the pinkness. This is a tried and tested mantra dear brides – when you look great, you feel great!
Situation: You’ve stressed over the wedding prep so much that now your head hurts
Quick Fix: Apply a balm, like Iodex or Vicks and find time to take a quick power nap in between the celebration. Or pop in an Action 500 or Dispirin and dance the night away. Also, ensure you drink plenty of water and keep yourself hydrated.
Situation: It being your last dinner with the family, you gorged on a lot of maa ke haath ka khana last night. Next morning your bowel system doesn’t seem to be agreeing with all the good stuff in there. You can’t keep excusing yourself every now and then to visit the loo, what to do?
Quick Fix: For abdominal pain, bloating, gas, diarrhea or upset stomach peppermint oil in the form of coating or capsule works wonders! Pudin Hara, might do the trick. Keep a small medicine kit in your purse for emergency ailments. In case if you feel pukish keep some hard candy or mints handy.
Situation: “Kal raat ko kuch thanda pee liya kya?” This is exactly how your mummyji will react if you tell her you have a sore throat on your wedding day
Quick Fix: Warm soup, tea or broth mixed with honey or lemon or ginger should do the job. Ensure whatever you gulp down is light and warm, and not thick and hot. Keep Strepsils handy for quick relief.
Situation: You’ve been sitting with your family reminiscing about the good old days all night long, probably shed a tear or more, say a bucket full. Next morning you wake up with red and puffy eyes in no way looking like the princess bride you imagined yourself to be. Now what?
Quick Fix: Rush someone to go get you a Garnier Skin Naturals White Complete Eye Roll-On, applying this around your eye will instantly eradicate any puffiness and dark circle. If you’re unable to get this over the counter, grab 2 small bags of ice, cover them with washcloths and hold them over your eyes for 10 minutes. This should brighten up your eyes.
Situation: The flu seems to have caught you and now you have a runny nose and feel a bit congested. Slowly, this is culminating into light coughs and you’re afraid it’s going to get worse.
Quick Fix: Nothing really. Sorry, but this will only get cured with a doctor’s prescription. You could try a dadi maa ke nuskhe if that works quickly on you. However, we’d suggest despite of feeling under the weather, look your lovely best and don’t let a sneeze or a cough bother you. Get your survival mode on and rock your day!
