Like many brides in 2020, comedian Heather McMahan had to rethink her original plan for a September wedding in Italy. Instead, McMahan and Jeff Daniels fled to Atlanta on the night of the winter solstice. “Our accountant told us to do it, so we did it,” she wrote on Instagram. “Don’t worry, the Italian party is still going on.”

And nearly two years after their original wedding date, the couple finally traveled to Florence, Italy, where they celebrated their nuptials alongside family and friends.

With so much time to plan, McMahan was able to nail her wedding glamor with a combination of stellar beauty products and a positive mindset.

“There’s so much pressure to look your best on your wedding day, but honestly, I just wanted to look my best,” the lady said. Absolutely not the podcast host tells PEOPLE. “I took the pressure off myself and really focused on what was going to help me feel the best I could.”

Here, she shares her wedding day must-haves.
