Looking your best for your wedding (or any big event) is important but how do you fit all your appointments in the week before? And in what order?
I get this question a lot from my bridal clients so I’m putting it in a blog!
Six months to a year out from your date: start your skin care routine. This gives you plenty of time to customize your plan with a professional. More aggressive treatments like chemical peels require downtime and planning.
Six months before your big day: have a trial run with your hair and makeup artist as well as other professionals. This includes nails, spray tan, waxing, lash extensions etc. Find the business where you will have these services performed AND the technician who will perform them. Leave as little to chance as possible!
Four weeks before your big day: have your last corrective facial treatment with microdermabrasion or a peel, hair cut/color, Botox and fillers.
Five-seven days before your big day: have a massage, a body wrap, body scrub, or any other body treatments.
Three-five days before your big day: schedule lash extensions, waxing, LED facial.
The day before your big day: schedule manicure and pedicure then spray tan.
A few general items to remember:
Book as early as possible! Talented technicians in all trades get busy so the earlier you plan, the better for both of you. I have brides that book 6 months of treatments up front and it works great for both of us.
Certain treatments take time to work. Botox takes two weeks to see full results. A chemical peel can take about a month to see the best results. Have consultations with professionals so you know what to expect on what timeline. This is not a time to experiment with something new!
