    nicole72994 :  It doesn’t fully last 4 weeks or at least for me it never did. I think if you hadn’t reacted to a regular bikini wax and as long as the same type of wax is used I don’t see why you would react to a brazilian. I did a full brazilian before the wedding but I was only shaving before. I did the wax 3 days before the wedding.

    If you really want to try it out first go get it done tomorrow and then when it’s starts growing out (assuming after 3 weeks) don’t shave so that it’s grown out long enough for the technician to be able to do it.

    I would go for one asap, and if you have a reaction (which you probably won’t, unless you have really sensitive skin) and go for one 2-4 days before the big day! Esp if you are going on a honeymoon right after. This is what I am doing for my wedding in July as well. My biggest piece of advice is to get sugared instead of waxed. The results are better and it lasts longer.

    nicole72994 :  Possibly Too Much Information, but Brazilian waxes aren’t very painful for me and easily last 5-6 weeks.  I think they’re worth every penny. From discussions with my girlfriends, hair texture/color seems to affect the pain and how long it lasts.

    nicole72994 :  I’m planning on doing it! If you’re worried about maintaining costs if you’d want to continue waxing after the wedding, you can buy wax kits online. I have Gigi’s Brazilian Hard Wax Kit, which cost around $50 (so less than one professional Brazilian!) and I bought it about 3 months ago. I’ve currently done 3 separate waxes on myself and am growing hair out for the next one 3 days before my wedding next Saturday. Since your wedding is so close, I wouldn’t go this route now – I’d get two professional waxes between now andyour wedding, but I LOVE the feeling of being waxed and probably will continue that after I get married, so I decided to do it cheaper at home. 

    If you’re worried about pain, pop an Aleve or something similar about 45 minutes before your appointment.

    nicole72994 :  Holy shit- shout out to whoever does their own brazilians. Yowza.

    I have a brazilian scheduled for the day before my wedding, but they’re pretty painful if it’s not something you do regularly/maintain. If you really want to do it, I’d say your timing is spot on: it will be enough to reduce any swelling, but not enough time to get itchy (this happens for my regrowth about 2.5 weeks in)

    If you’re worried about pain, get a 5% lidocaine cream (you can get this on amazon) and slather it pretty thick where you’re waxing, then wrap it tightly in saran wrap like a diaper. I did this and then did my own brazilian at home and I didn’t feel a thing!
