You bought your wedding gown—now what? It is time to plan out your beauty timeline to compliment the wedding dress of your dreams. Below are some awesome tips for you.
- Think about whether or not you will need multiple haircuts between now and the wedding day. Make your appointments with your stylist ahead of time.
- Don’t wait until the last minute to plan your wedding day makeup and hairstyle. Try a variety of different things well in advance and stick to your final decision. This will ensure that you will be confident about how you look on the big day.
- Consider your budget when it comes to beauty treatments. They don’t have to be super expensive. You can ask for spa treatments as gifts rather than asking friends or family members to buys something from your shower registry. Also, keep in mind that some spas offer deals for first-time visitors. Or, don’t be afraid to ask for a package discount—you are, after all, a bride!
- If you have a friend or relative that is really talented when it comes to hair or makeup, why not ask him or her to come over to experiment with different looks. You can even do this before searching for a hair stylist or makeup artist… just to get an idea of what you want.
- If you are worried about hair and makeup issues on the actual wedding day (sometimes getting the wedding gown on can actually damage you hair do or smudge your makeup), think about hiring the stylist to be there on site on the big day. You may have to pay an extra fee, so make sure you count this in your budget.
- A few months before your wedding, you may want to contact a dermatologist or aesthetician for a consultation. They may be able to give you some great tip on how to keep your skin looking its very best.
- If you want to skip professional beauty experts altogether and take things into your own hands, consider taking at least one lesson from a make-up artist, or do some online research to find what look will go best with your skin tone, wedding gown, etc.
- Going on a crash diet is not the answer to looking great in your wedding gown. But, in the days or weeks before your wedding day, it is a good idea to stay away from overly salty foods and caffeinated beverages, which can make you retain water and look a bit bloated. Also, drinking lots of water is key, not only for your body, but also for your skin.
