If I remember correctly, what I did during the week of was my mani and pedi the day before the wedding. I was offered a massage but the last time I had one, I got pretty sick and that was after drinking a lot of water.

The whole deal: mani/pedi, wax, and facial.

I wouldn’t get a facial unless you get them regularly — it can really irritate your skin!

I’ll wax a few days before and get the mani/pedi the day before.

i did eyebrow wax 4 days before, mani and pedi the day before, and massage day of (gift from dad). loved the massage- especially because i had a migraine that day so it really helped.

I’m planning on a mani/pedi and a massage. My brother’s girlfriend is a masseuse and she offered to do it for free!

I’m waxing and getting a facial a week before (I’m a quasi-DW bride and do not trust anybody besides my go-to esthetician to do this for me!)

I’m doing a mani/pedi the day before.

This is big time pampering for me, as I don’t usually do any of this stuff! I’m a little worried about the waxing so far in advance though…I guess I can have my makeup lady tweeze any rogue eyebrows the day of if need be.

Cut and color ten days before, waxing a week before and then mani/pedi the day before.  I wish there was time for a massage in there, but it’s just not in the cards…

My pre-wed week involved a mani/pedi (morning of the wedding) and a 30-minute massage (3 days before wedding) – that was the best idea ever! I was totally relaxed after that.

My plans are:

Facial (I get them regularly, so will probably get one 1-2 weeks before)
Color/highlights – week before
Eyebrows – not sure when but those puppies are getting waxed
Day before: mani/pedi

I’m debating getting this thing called a “body polish”, where they give you a massage, put oil on your skin and nice lotion all over and stuff like that so your skin glows. It sounds heavenly, but it’s also $90, and its not like I can’t apply my own lotion to myself lol……hmmm……

@gabrielleelise — the body polish is heavenly.  my best friend and I h ad one before her wedding as part of our pampering and I would love to add that to mine, but like you said, not sure I can swing the bling.

But if you can afford it – treat yourself!  Totally worth it.

I agree with @ribbons…don’t get a facial right before your big day if you don’t get them on a regular/semi regular basis…or atleast get a test one a month  or so before and see how it works for you (explain your concerns at the appointment!)

My week-of-pampering:

Facial (I get a realy gentle one to make my poors nice and tight and skin refreshed) 2 weeks prior

Hair (cut, colored, highlighted, conditioning treatment): 1 week – 1.5 weeks before

Waxing (I get bikini and eyebrows and underarm—usually I shave my underarms but I don’t want any bumps for “I do”) 1 week before the wedding

Massage (1 hour full body)-day before the wedding

Mani/Pedi-day before 

Hair/make up-day of 🙂
