I’m not a big beauty girl so I didn’t really do much leading up.  I did get a massage the weekend before.

Sounds fun!  I suggest a massage if you have time!  Great for stress relief!

I am getting my brows threaded about 4 day before…body hair removal a day before..my skin has been loved for months so i will try to relax so the stress demon will not ruin my skin.  I will be taking my herbal sleeping tea for at least 4 nights before to assure i WILL SLEEP ..i will also most likely get a mani padi the day before..will get my hair trimmed a month before..and will do my favorite mud mask and sugar+honey scrub the day before 🙂

 

ps. I strongly suggest doing a facial month or more before the wedding.  It usually mmakes u break out first before the good side effects happen..also if there is any allergic reaction u will be healed by the big day 🙂

I was actually just thinking about this I have to start paying attention to my regular beauty routine and when everything looks the best so I can time it right!! Usually I like my brows the best the day after . . . for me breakouts are usually a day or two after I was so I’ll be doing them the day before probably. I’ve been doing them myself for about 7 years now so I’m not worried about that one but the skin stuff I have no idea, I kinda just do it when I feel like i need it sooo . . . I actually just started going to the dermo so I guess I’ll just have to see what the stuff she gave me does and how that reacts etc and go from there. I have to figure my nails out as well  . . . ugh I have too much to do!

This post just made me really excited to start.  Ok so this weekend, (2 months before wedding) I’m going to start a new exfoliation product to help my skin reach it’s full potential.  I’ve already increased my water intake.  Oh and my Fiance and I quit smoking 3 weeks ago so that will seriously help my skin.

Two weeks before I have hair/makeup trial. The Tuesday before I’m getting a pedi with my mom and Maid/Matron of Honor.  The morning of getting makeup and salon hair.

I don;t get much opportunity to go do fun stuff like this, so I am really looking forward to it as well!
I am getting a manicure, and pedicure a few days before, and am hoping to squeeze in a massage too-to help relax! The only trouble is trying to find time to do it! LOL

Be careful about getting a facial so son before the big day. Unless you’ve gotten facials before and absolutely KNOW that your skin has no reaction, most people would do it at least a week beforehand. I know this kinda messes up your schedule but we must have your face look as hot as possible for all those pix!

Also, if you do a massage, i’d also have it done a couple days before the wedding. Even though they feel sooooo good I end up feeling a bit sore the day after – but then again, I like to be pummelled…
