I see you, browsing the internet wondering if getting those bangs is actually a good idea, or feeling lost in a sea of spray tan horror stories. Well, don’t you worry, I’m swooping in and breaking down your wedding, beauty timeline. In true, treat yo’ self fashion!
SIX MONTHS OUT
Itching for a new ‘do, want to trying out some stellar highlights? Best to do this with six months to spare. If you love it, you’ll know who to go back to before your big day. If you don’t though, you’ll have plenty of time for corrections and said bangs to grow out!
You deserve to look your best as you say “I do”, and fresh, glowing skin always pairs well with a wedding dress. It’s best to seek the help of a professional if your skin is in need of a little love. Get everything hammered out, so that your skin is looking flawless when you become Mr. and Mrs.!
THREE MONTHS OUT
We want your hair and makeup looking fresh as a daisy, and photographing beautifully on your big day! Schedule your appointment for around this time for your hair and makeup test run. It may seem like something that you can blow off, but please do your future self a huge favor and get the trial!
Wanting to experiment with faux tans? Best to do it with plenty of time to perfect your application process, and leave you with time for any fading that needs to happen!
ONE MONTH OUT
You are in the final stretch, which means it’s in your best interest to not try any new body products, or pull a switcharoo with your laundry detergent. Skin irritations can take forever to discover the cause, but also a while to clear up. Stay safe and stick to your classic products!
Looking to make those pearly whites radiant? Bust out the teeth whitening kit and get to it, sister.
TWO WEEKS OUT
This is your time to touch up your roots, or get a final trim before your big day! Your style will have settled, and you’ll be looking mighty fine when it comes time to walk down to aisle.
THE WEEK OF
If you’re a seasoned pro at getting waxes, then save all of your hair removal needs for the week of. Let your waxer know, to make sure that you are payed extra attention to. New to waxing? Give this a go around the seven week out mark, and then again right around this time. This is not the time to experiment with a new threader, aesthetician, or technique!
If you heeded my above advice on visiting a pro to take care of all of your skin needs, schedule yourself a facial, but forgo any kind of peel!
Two days before the wedding will leave you with plenty of time to get a spray tan, have it develop, and get rid of that initial orange hue.
THE DAY BEFORE
Get your nails painted, and schedule in a massage, girl! Treat. Yo. Self.
The night before is the perfect time to apply your favorite cleansing mask, stick to leaving it on for half of the normal time and finish off with your favorite, hydrating sheet mask.
Drink all of the water that you possibly can leading up to your big day, get to bed early the night before, and enjoy, enjoy, ENJOY!
There you having it, now it’s time to dive in and start pampering yourself!
