After the long months of planning every last detail of your wedding, the day is finally upon you! Being just weeks away can be incredibly exciting, albeit filled with worry about whether or not you’re actually prepared. While you might have the vendors paid and the guests confirmed, what about preparations for yourself? Beyond the dress and shoes, it’s important to consider the beauty details of your big day. To ensure you’re ready, five of the most important things you’ll want to do (and when you’ll want to do them) are listed below.
1. Treat Yourself to a Facial
A facial will give your skin a much-needed bath of vitamins while helping to clear blackheads, whiteheads, and any other impurities that can cause acne. In addition to this, it can help get rid of dead skin so it feels baby soft–which your spouse will certainly appreciate. Fortunately there are many different types of facials to choose from, including those that are designed to brighten the skin. Choose based on which you’re most comfortable with and what appeals to your skin type the most.
2. Consider Hair Removal
A large majority of brides decide to manage their body hair (from the face all the way to the legs) by having it professionally waxed. This is due to the fact that waxing can last around a month, eliminates next-day stubble, and makes the skin feel silky smooth. Not to mention it won’t require spending an hour in the shower trying to reach every last inch of the skin with a razor.

3. Get a Fake Tan
Even if you never tan or aren’t concerned about bronzed skin, you’ll want it for your wedding day. Not only will this look great in pictures but it can also help give you that “bridal glow” that every woman desires. Oh, and don’t forget that even a light tan can help you look more slim while covering up any imperfections on your skin. For most women, they choose to have a spray tan done because it’s quick and produces natural results. This can be done either by a spray tan technician or many tanning shops have booths with spray tan machines in them.
4. Whiten Your Teeth
As a bride, the first thing guests will notice is the big smile you shine as you walk down the aisle. If you want this smile to be filled with pearly whites that brighten your face, then you’ll need to whiten your teeth before the big day. One of the most effective ways of achieving this look is by using teeth whitening strips a couple of months before your wedding. In addition to this, you may want to avoid staining foods and beverages, such as blueberries and red wine/tea.
5. Have Your Nails Done
With guests asking to see your ring and the photographer pictures of you holding hands, it’s important to have a beautiful manicure for your big day. Would you like to go with a color or are you more interested in something classic? The choice is up to you and the overall look you’re going for.
