Beauty Appointments You Must Make Before Your Wedding

Your calendar is full, and you are running all over town pulling details together. One major piece to remember in the chaos is YOU! Leave some space for these important self-care appointments. You will be thankful when you walk down the aisle not only looking, but feeling your best.

Nails

Schedule a Mani-Pedi and bring along your bridesmaids. This is a great way to unwind and spend time with the girls. Ask in advance if you can pop the bubbly and include a snack tray to make it even more festive.

Hair

You may have secured a stylist on location for your wedding day, but don’t forget a maintenance appointment. Trim your split ends and include a deep conditioning treatment one to two weeks prior. You want your hair honeymoon ready after all! This also allows your stylist to focus solely on up-do and curls on your wedding day.

Makeup

Not every bride has a make-up artist on site. Plan a visit with a professional one or two weeks out and include your maid of honor. Ask for tips on proper application and take notes on how to create an extra pop for photos.

Tanning

Whether you prefer the tanning booth or a spray, it is important that you make this appointment within one week prior to your wedding day. You want to allow time for your tan to set so you walk down the aisle with perfectly glowing skin. Tans will fade over time so try to not to make your appointment too early.

Massage

This one is for you. You have worked hard preparing for this big moment, it’s time to relax a little. A massage is a great way to reduce stress and ease any tension you have developed through your planning. This is also a great way to escape by taking your mind off wedding details. You deserve it!

2018’s effortless trend also makes way for the return of braids and natural head pieces.  Flowers and baby’s breath are a beautiful way that brides are choosing to accessorize their style with natural elegance.

No need to spends hours applying makeup for your wedding this year.  In fact, for 2018, less is more.  Soft pink lips, and natural eye shadows are more desirable.  If you prefer to make a statement, smoky eyes are still the way to go.  No need to be too elaborate, just a simple dramatization in the corners will do.  Also, toss the blush and apply bronzer instead on your cheeks, chin, and forehead to give a sun-kissed glow and a smooth finish.  Finally, keep the brows full to frame your face.  Over-plucked thin brows are no longer a must.

 

 

Although hair and makeup trends for 2018 welcome a more natural tone, keep in mind that you still want enough style and color to appear flattering in your wedding photos.  Try to avoid colors and styles that will make you look washed-out and up-kept.  Still take time with your look, even though the goal is to appear effortless.  You will be pleased with the results!
