Wedding pictures will stay with us for a lifetime, so it's important we shower ourselves with all the self-love and self-care we deserve in order to look amazing on our wedding day. To that end, we've put together a list of beauty appointments that you must make before your wedding day so that you can feel as special as possible. These can be done over a period of time, and you can also only choose the beauty services that appeal to you, but here's what we'd recommend so that you can be as ready as possible. No need to thank us, we've got your back.
Taking a trip to the dentist before your big day can be an amazing way to make sure your teeth are as white and shiny as they can be for your beaming smile in all the photos. Dentist checkups are advised regularly, so making an extra session for a deep clean and maybe some whitening before your wedding will not be a waste.
A facial a few weeks before a wedding is a great idea if you want to make sure your skin is looking its best for the big day. Most probably, on the day, you will be wearing makeup, but looking after your skin is so important so having a fresh face underneath will be a blessing in the long run. Getting a facial is a self-love recipe for glowing skin and, since you have a wedding coming up, now is the best time to treat yourself.
3. Makeup Trial
It's a pretty bad idea to not have tested out your makeup before the day of the wedding. The art of makeup will define how your face ends up looking on the big day, and how you will look in photos afterward, so it's definitely important to make sure that you have met with the makeup artist before to talk things through and to decide what look you're going for. This will be so important so that when you do eventually get to the day, you'll be prepared for your beauty to shine through, with no surprises or mistakes.
Obviously, the hairdresser is a must. If you're someone who dyes your hair, then making sure you see a hair colorist before the big day is important as you'll want a fresh color put on so your hair will look radiant. A trim is always a good idea, and also meeting a hairstylist is important so that you can know what vibe you want your hair to be going for on the day. Meeting with the hairstylist before the day could also be beneficial so that you already know how you'll look when the day comes.
5. Tanning Salon
If you're living in a part of the world where the sun doesn't naturally give you the tanning rays that you would like, it can be a good idea to visit a tanning salon. This is, of course, entirely up to personal preference. The important thing is that you feel amazing on the day, it's all about you. If you do decide to go for the bronzed look though, a tanning salon will help you achieve the sunkissed glow you're after.
6. Nail Salon
The last beauty appointment necessity before the big day is a trip to get a manicure and pedicure done. This should be done the day before the wedding, so that the nails look fresh, but this will make you feel a million dollars. You can choose whatever colors suit you, but having a freshly painted set of nails will add the finishing touches to your whole attire, leaving you looking and feeling fabulous.
