    Bridal Beauty Countdown
    9Months Before
    • Begin to get monthly manicures and pedicures, if you can afford them.
    • If you want longer nails, begin getting artificial nails or grow out your own nails. If you want to address problems like brittle nails or dry cuticles, chat with your manicurist.
    6 Months Before
    • Work out areas of your body that will be prominently displayed in your dress — chest, arms and waist.
    6 to 9 Months Before
    • Book your makeup artist and hair stylist for the wedding date. Discuss a wedding-day schedule.
    • Begin to have your hair trimmed every four to six weeks..
    • Test-run your makeup and hair. Mimic the wedding day. Use the same cosmetics; wear your veil and headpiece.
    • Make an appointment for a tooth cleaning for one to two weeks before the wedding day.
    • Consider having your eyebrows shaped professionally. Get them waxed or tweezed monthly.
    1 to 2 Months Before
    • Get your teeth professionally whitened, if you can afford it.
    • Start drinking at least eight glasses of water a day.
    1 to 2 Weeks Before
    • Get your final haircut or coloring. That way, the cut and color will have time to adjust.
    • Go for final eyebrow shaping. Get any other waxing you’d like, such as your upper lip or bikini area.
    • Get your last facial if you’ve been having them regularly. It will give your face time to tone down if it looks red or puffy.
    • Start getting enough sleep.
    • Avoid the sun, or wear sunblock to prevent tan lines or redness.
    • Get teeth cleaned by your dentist.
    1 Day Before
    • Avoid salty foods and alcohol, which can promote bloating, puffy eyes or other conditions.
    • If you get last-minute breakouts, visit your dermatologist. He or she can give you an injection to reduce the swelling.
    • Get a manicure and pedicure.
    • Go for a massage.
    • Take a nap and go to bed early.
    • Put your skin in gear. Exfoliate your skin with a body wash. Apply lots of moisturizer all over your body. Use only products that you’re familiar with.
    • Again, drink lots of water.
    Wedding Day
    • Eat! No one wants a bride to faint.
    • Get your hair and makeup done. Wear a robe or button-down shirt so you don’t ruin your face or hair.
    • Relax and smile!

     

    It’s Your Wedding Day so Enjoy It…..
