6-12 Months Before
Consultation Time: Begin by consulting with beauty professionals who specialize in weddings. Do your research, read their reviews to be sure that the language aligns with what you're looking for, and book appointments with makeup artists, hairstylists, and skincare specialists who have experience with wedding looks.
4-6 Months Before
Skincare Regimen: Work with a skincare expert to create a tailored routine that addresses your skin concerns. Whether that be a dermatologies or an esthetician, be consistent with your routine and their recommendations. Having a cleanser, toner, moisturizer, treatment, and SPF are all necessary steps to achieve flawless skin.
3-4 Months Before
Hair Trials: Schedule a hair trial to experiment with potential bridal hairstyles. This ensures you find the perfect look that complements your dress and overall theme.
2-3 Months Before
Makeup Trials: Book a makeup preview to collaborate with your chosen artist on a look that matches your vision and highlights your best features. You can often times schedule this the same day as your hair preview and bridal shower.
1-2 Months Before
Facials and Treatments: Schedule any facials, microdermabrasion, or other treatments recommended by your skincare specialist. This ensures your beauty is in tip top shape.
2-4 Weeks Before
Hair Color and Cut: If you color your hair, this is the time to touch up your roots and get a fresh cut. Avoid trying anything new or outside of what you normally go for. Now is not the time to be adventurous.
1 Week Before
Final Touch-Ups: Get any necessary beauty treatments, such as eyebrow shaping, waxing, teeth whitening, or tan.
