    I think you should get it done the day before that way you won’t feel rushed if something unexpected pops up the day of or if something takes longer than planned.

    I’d definitely go and do it the morning before, and make sure you have at least two hours afterwards to essentially sit around and do NADA, lol, so it can really properly dry.

    I strongly suggest bringing in your own polish, or seeing if you can purchase any colors they put on your nails, so you can give yourself an emergency touch-up if needed.

    I would definately go the day before! You’ll have more time and no rushing or worries if by chance you don’t like the result and they have to redo them or something. I want the morning before the wedding with my mom and we got them done together!

    I’m doing it all the day before. Maybe even the thursday before! I want it to be relaxed and not feel rushed.

    My ceremony is at 5 pm and I’m booking us for mani/pedis the day before. I have three bridesmaids who will be getting theirs done along with me, and I know it will take a good chunk of time to get all of us taken care of. We’d have to get up pretty early to have time for all of our mani/pedis in addition to hair and makeup on the day of the wedding. I want us to have fun with both the mani/pedi time and the hair/makeup time, I feel like doing them back-to-back might be exhausting and definitely a bit of a stressful time crunch. But if it’s just you, with no bridesmaids to consider, then personally I would seriously consider doing it the morning of. Even a fantastic manicure can risk a random chip after 24 hours if you are doing crazy things like, say, using car keys or putting on shoes or any of those other million things that can screw up a manicure. I’ll be extra extra careful trying to keep mine protected.

    We’re doing the morning/early afternoon before the wedding so that we can focus on hair and makeup and getting to the ceremony on the day of the wedding.

    I’m doing it two days before because we have to travel to OC the day before with our families, check in the hotel and have the rehearsal. Also I don’t know any places that are open Sunday or on Memorial Day.

    I’m thinking about doing it the morning of, because I’m going to be doing my own flowers the day before and will probably chip any manicure I’d get. But it’s interesting to see all the responses in favor of the day before.

    I actually went the day before. It gave me time to relax and I didn’t have to worry about rushing. Even with a late ceremony / reception, unexpected things can come up. Just better to get it over with the day before IMO.

    I work in the beauty industry and I suggest to my customers up to 2 days in advace max for manicure and pedicure. but I also always have a little room for emergency fix ups and I also have the bride buy the colour she will be wearing (just a in case of emergency )
