I know it seems ridiculous, but here I am 16 days before my wedding and I haven’t even thought about my hair, nails, or makeup, or if I’m doing any at all!
Backstory: I’m a tomboy, I’ve only had one pedicure (it was last week as a gift from a friend), and I usually schlep on makeup in 30 seconds flat before dashing out the door…
When the topic was presented I thought I’d find a friend to do my hair and make-up, but should I get a mani/pedi (even though I’ve never before and it feels like I’ll be TOO fancy)?

@Jewelofthewest: Your hands (and possibly feet) will be in your wedding photos so they can never really be too fancy. Having a manicure and pedicure doesn’t mean you need bright pink nails. You can always opt for something subtle or just clear nail polish. Think of it as “tidying up” the nail area to make them more presentable.

Yes, get pampered. It’s your wedding… just go neutral with the nails and feet. You can even do your own.

I’d get a mani/pedi- it’s relaxing, number one, and number 2, there’s going to be a lot of pics, might as well look as good as possible. You don’t have to get fake nails or anything- I’m growing my natural nails out a bit for the wedding (I normally keep them super-short), but I’m not getting fakes and I’m not doing a French manicure, either- I’ll probably do like a ballet slipper pink. It just looks more polished when your nails are done nice.
