5 days is probably perfect (unless you know you don’t react well). It usually takes me 2-3 days for the redness to go down after a brazilian. I have no advice about your lip, though!

If you’ve never waxed your upper lip – I wouldn’t do it 5 days before the wedding.  When I first started waxing it – I broke out bad and was pretty red for a week or so.  The times after that first time were fine – but, I’d be so scared.  If it’s just peach fuzz – it should be fine in pictures!

Bikini will be fine!  I have sensitive skin and am usually red for 1-2 days afterwards….

I would say definitely don’t do the upper lip, especially 5 days before the wedding. 

I have sensitive skin too and first time lip waxing left me a with some red patches for a few days…I’m also pretty fair so the red was very noticable

You might be able to get away with the lip waxing IF you’ve done it before but I really really wouldn’t chance having an allergic reaction or (goodness-forbid) the esthetician accidentally burning you!!

As for the bikini wax…even after a few years of regular bikini waxing, I still have some red dots but only far a day or two after…I’d be more willing to chance a bikini wax because that won’t be showing up in your wedding pictures!!

Maybe Nair is safer?

I know many people that breakout after waxing for anywhere on the face so I wouldn’t do it if you’ve never tested your skin reactions before.

Don’t wax your lip now  – you may break out or get accidentally burned. I would do Nair or some other cream like that. Bikini – you’re OK to do it now!
