Beauty Tip Timeline

Every bride wants to look her best for the wedding so get a jumpstart on your beauty regimen. Guarantee sparkling pearly whites, a flawless face, and envy-worthy hair (and avoid a slew of beauty disasters) by following this beauty tip timeline…

6-9 months before:

– Order a wedding gown.
– Begin an exercise routine to drop pounds for the wedding.

 2-3 months before:

– Book an appointment with a hair stylist and make-up artist for the wedding day.
– Schedule an appointment for manicures and pedicures for you and your bridal party.
– If you’re new to bikini waxing, schedule your first appointment now to get acclimated to the process and eliminate excess swelling or irritation on your wedding day.
– Begin collecting ideas for wedding day accessories, makeup, and hair styles.

1-2 months before:

– Schedule dress fittings for your wedding gown.
– Begin an at-home or professional teeth whitening regimen.
– If you plan to tan, start scheduling appointments, but don’t overdo it. A little color is great, but skin that’s too tanned can look unhealthy and unnatural in photos.
– Final deadline for changing soap, laundry detergent, birth control, or skin-care program to give you ample time to deal with unexpected side effects.

1-2 weeks before:

– Cut back on sodium and alcohol intake to lessen bloating, and double your water intake to ensure fresh and clear skin.
– Get a facial. Skin will look radiant for the wedding without showing signs of irritation.
– Have eyebrows waxed or tweezed to shape them up and eliminate the chance of redness or irritation on the wedding day.
– Have your hairstylist do a trial run of your wedding day ‘do to make sure you’re on the same page and are happy with the look.
– Have your final dress fitting.
– Get your hair colored and trimmed.

1-3 days before:

– Treat hands and feet to a relaxing manicure or pedicure.
– Pack a beauty kit for wedding day touch-ups and emergencies, stocked with waterproof mascara, lipstick, hairspray, concealer, powder, bobby pins, deodorant, perfume, cotton swabs, band-aids, breath mints, and dental floss.
– Get a massage!

Wedding Day:

– Have hair and makeup professionally done by an expert to help you look and feel your best.
– Wear a button-down shirt to hair and make-up appointments to avoid messing anything up when you change.
– Avoid red wine and dark foods, like berries, that can stain teeth in photos.
– Touch up make-up after the wedding ceremony and throughout the reception.
