The 3 adjectives most commonly attached to the word 'bride' are beautiful, glowing and blushing. I'd say choosing the right wedding-day blush is a pretty important step.

I know, I know, I shouldn't have brought this up — you so don't need one more wedding decision to stress over. That is why I am going to narrow down your choices to the three best blushes for brides. You're welcome!

1. Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Blush

Why it's perfect for brides: First of all, it has those sweet hearts all over it and will make your getting-ready routine feel extra-special on the big day. But more important, this smooth and slightly iridescent blush gives you some extra gleam, while still offering plenty of pigment so you get believable color without having to pile it on. Oh, and there's a supposedly mood-boosting scent — not that you'll need the extra endorphins, but it sure does smell pretty and bridal.

2. Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush

Why it's perfect for brides: This is one of the longest-lasting blushes out there, so your cheeky glow won't fade away before cake cutting time. The cream formula means it looks incredibly natural and radiant. Oh, and bonus points: There's a shade called Blushing Bride.

3. Bobbi Brown Blush

Why it's perfect for brides: No cutesy packaging or wedding-related color names with this one — just the most perfect, totally matte and seamless/airbrushed-looking blush, if that's what you're going for (and if you'll be adding plenty of shine elsewhere, such as on your eyes. I'm guessing you don't want to end up looking like Tinker Bell with a shimmery blush too).
