@future-mrs:  I’ve been seeing a dermotologist for my cystic acne and rosacea. I started early because you never know how long finding the right treatment will take.

I’ll get a mani/pedi the day before.

Hair I’ve already tried out and decided on the color. It’s a chocolate cherry that’s very close to my natural brown but with a tinge of auburn. FH loved the color.

I think about losing like 3-5 pounds but I yo-yo a lot so I’m sure the month before the wedding I’ll be where I want because of the stress.


I’m also going to start tanning a few months before just for a healthy glow. I don’t habitually tan but I look great with one. 🙂

Hair – extensions and cut & color

Skin – keeping to a strict beauty regime, drinking lots of water (& w/lemon in the morning), eating healthy 

Nails – manicure and pedicure the day before the wedding

Weight loss/toning – don’t need it

I have done the following already:

1) Got my hair cut and dyed about 4 weeks before – that way it will be in the best shape for the wedding when it’s grown out a tiny bit.

2) Gone to FL for a few days and got a real tan.

3) Moisturize 2x daily using that Clinique moisturizer (it’s yellow – forget the name). It’s amazing.

4) Bought the UD Naked 2 palette and have been practicing with it (doing my own make-up).

5) Bought a mini curling iron and learned to curl my hair (doing my own hair as well).

6) Weight loss – Stopped boozing, eating processed food and desserts (OMG, I can’t wait to have dessert again at my wedding!). Been using a ShakeWeight and doing squats when watching tv. Sometimes I run but I don’t try to be religious about it. And just in case the weight loss didn’t work…

7) … bought Spanx.

Still need to do:

1) Getting an organic airbrush tan a couple days before.

2) Debating on whether I want to do my own mani-pedi or have it done.

3) Figure out what kind of look I want to go for make-up and hair-wise… YouTube will help with that.

@future-mrs:  Starting a few weeks from the wedding I kept polish on my nails so I didn’t have the urge to gnaw them off.  I also left lotion on my nightstand and made sure to use it morning and night.

Regarding food I tried to eat healthy and cut pop a week or two leading up to my wedding.  I also started drinking Emergen-C because the flu was going around at the time.

@orchidaloha:  If I haven’t already found you before and pointed it out; Hey, date twin! I don’t see many 11/10/13 brides on here!! 

@MrsNewDay:  Great list! I’m most jealous of #2! My tan is fading but I didn’t know “organic spray tans” were a thing! I’ll have to look into that! Also, the yellow bottle is Clinique’s Moisture+ and it is amazeballs, indeed.

I just got my hair trimmed, highlighted (juuuuust barely), and trialed (half up/half down loose waves, whawhat!). Got my eyebrows waxed & ‘stache under control, too. Phew!


Maintaining my weight, admitedly though by telling myself I’m trying to lose 5 so I’ll be very conscientious of my food intake.


Keeping up on my skin care routine (thanks, Clinique!) and I think this might be a new years resolution – I love how my skin looks when I’m not too lazy to wash it 2x/day!


Planning on getting a “natural” mani/pedi – i.e. no gels – the day or two before the wedding. I’ll take my own bottle of color so I can touch up if necessary. Maybe I’ll just spend the in-between time wearing latex gloves 😉


I think that sums up the beautification process! Oh, lots of moisturing from head-to-toe!

I’m about five months out and have started a push-up challenge so that I’ll have killer arms and shoulders in my dress. Other than that, I’m going to have to start practicing my intended hairstyle soon, so that I know I can nail it on the big day. I’m usually pretty great at doing my own hair but I’m planning something a little different for the wedding, so it’ll take some practice.
