The groom may now kiss the bride’s plumper pout as trend towards achieving wedding day perfection includes surgery.

Fitting into the perfect wedding dress used to be a matter of diet and exercise. But for today’s brides, going under the knife is also becoming a popular option. From non-surgical procedures like Botox to all-out plastic surgery like nose jobs and facelifts, ABC News reports that women are preparing for their wedding day like never before (http://abclocal.go.com/wls/story?section=news/special_segments&id=9111500 05/22/2013).

In order to afford these expensive procedures, brides are including the cost into their wedding planning budget. For some, this can mean pushing back the wedding date to ensure they can still afford all the bells and whistles for their big day. Others decide to forego more expensive wedding dresses, venues or decorations.

Though it may seem extreme, brides-to-be have expectations for their walk down the aisle that they want to meet or exceed. For some, plastic or cosmetic surgery may be the means to that end.

“Brides understandably want to look their best on their wedding day,” says Brett Reynolds, CEO of Wedding.com. “With cameras flashing all day long, not to mention the wow factor they want to have as their groom first lays eyes on them, it can feel like a lot of pressure. Brides have to make the choice that’s right for them for attaining their wedding day beauty goals.”

There’s a lot for brides to consider when deciding to have surgery or cosmetic work performed. When planning to have a surgical procedure like breast implants or liposuction, brides have to figure in healing time as well as time for dress alterations, especially if the dress has already been bought. Brides looking to have cosmetic procedures like Botox injections or chemical peels have to do so well in advance of the big day to make sure they don’t have an allergic reaction or experience any side effects.

Big day beauty encompasses several aspects that vary from bride to bride. While a manicure, pedicure and updo may be enough for one, a tummy tuck can be the confidence booster another bride wants before her nuptials. It's all about preference, and as technology advances, the trend towards pre-wedding plastic surgery is likely here to stay.
