Bridal Beauty Timeline
Don’t worry, ½ of me is type A and timeline approved and the other ½ of me is a free spirited semi procrastinator so I understand the struggle sometimes. I know when it comes to planning a wedding, big or small, the stress level can be high and the details many. With so much planning beauty can sometimes suffer until last minute. Many forget looking radiant and picturesque on your special day takes some planning and even some months of work. To help dodge some last minute beauty disasters we’ve outlined the ultimate beauty timeline for every bride and even groom. This is just a helpful guide that should be adjusted to fit your specific need.
Our essential guide to what to do and when, for your bridal beauty regime will help keep you looking gorgeous from saying ‘yes’ to ‘I do’.
Increase water intake – 8oz +….good for your body, skin, hair and much more
Fitness & nutrition – what you put into your body reflects outwardly especially during high stress times
Some sort of stress reliever – relax with anything from yoga to dance, boxing or even painting
Start experimenting with hair colour and cuts
Skin care – find a fabulous esthetician
Start talking multi-vitamins, the planning process can be stressful and tiring, getting sick on top of it won't help!
Start exfoliating (if you don't already!) your face and body once a week
Preview/book your makeup artist – preview with various artists you like and book your appointment, dates go quickly
Preview/book your hairstylist
Teeth whitening –simple home care kit will do or opt for a professional whitening
Brow redefinition - Have your brows waxed, threaded, or hand tweezed by a professional to find your perfect brow shape
Hair gloss, trim & colour
Body scrub treatment
Clean up brows if needed
If you want lash extensions – make an appointment for lashes that will last through the honeymoon
Waxing – bikini, arms, legs, etc.
Avoid salty food
Have your last gentle facial and discontinue using heavy exfoliates (i.e. glycolic acid) to give your skin time to recover.
If you're going down the fake tan route, remember less is more and get a spray tan 3 days before the wedding from an experienced technician
Drink lots of water
Pack emergency kit
Deep condition hair
Mani/Pedi with the bridesmaids
Moisturize head to toe – add a shimmer for a settle glow
Eat breakfast - important for energy and health, many brides forgot to eat during the festivities
Hair & makeup
Relax and enjoy your day knowing that you will look your best…radiantly gorgeous.
Til next time!
