Finding the time to make your beauty routine into a bride-to-be beauty routine is one of the most important aspects of preparing for the big day. Often our beauty routines become something that is done on the go or in between dealing with the essentials in life but when your wedding day is on the horizon planning in advance for regular beauty maintenance can save you time and keep you looking fresh and flawless on your wedding day.
6 Months Before the Big Day
Instill a Skincare Routine
Whether you are a skincare fanatic or a newbie to the skincare routine, with 6 months to go before your wedding day, you will have plenty of time to instill a new skincare beauty routine. This will give you time to meet with an Esthetician to help clear up any skincare issues and find the right products that work for you. If you’re unsure about what products will work for you stock up on samples and start small.
Hire a Glam Squad
Every girl wishes she could have her very own glam squad, especially on bad hair days! Better yet, having your make-up and hair done by a professional in a comfortable setting with all your besties by your side can calm your nerves and provide you with some much needed glam support! Splurging and securing professional help with beauty and style needs can help you feel like a celebrity, even if it is just for one day.

Make a Date to Plan Ahead
Seriously, there is nothing bridezilla about scheduling your major beauty appointments months in advance. There is nothing worse than not being able to get in at your favorite salons, especially when you’re getting married and you NEED a mani-pedi.
Book a Series of Facials
If you’re not a regular consumer of facials you may want to give them a chance when preparing for your big day. Scheduling facials at least 3 months in advance can allow your skin to adjust to the new regime and ensure you’re beautiful, glowing and flawless on your wedding day.

It Just Makes Scents
Picking your wedding day perfume may not sound like your typical beauty checklist need but it is important to keep in mind that everyone will want to congratulate you, and finding a pleasing and occasion worthy scent that blends with your style is essential. Also, giving new scents a test run well in advance can ensure you don’t find yourself wishing you had gone with something else for your big day.
Make-up Test Drive
Meeting with your professional make-up artist at least a month in advance can keep your frazzled nerves in check when it comes to wedding day make-up. Make sure to bring along anything you plan on wearing the day of, such as your veil, tiara and earrings. Also, wear a white or pale colored top to ensure your make-up is perfect.
