    I’ll be getting a fresh hair color, a wax, and a mani the week before! Already have 2/3 booked. I might get a tan too, I’m not sure yet. No facials for me, I have a pretty solid skincare routine and I’m terrified that a facial would make my acne prone skin go crazy.

    I also wouldn’t dare risk a facial the day before the wedding. Too much risk of reacting to a product, even if it’s just a facial for relaxation.

    I did a massage and a really luxe mani/pedi, which included things like parafin dips and hot stone massages.  It was nice to just have some quiet down time while being pampered!

    I just was stressed, sleep deprived, and sick the week leading up to our wedding, lost my voice a few days before and never got it back in time for the big day! ☹️ I now definitely suggest brides invest in self care, whatever that means!

    Don’t let them do any extractions and you’re golden. I did a facial 3 weeks before my wedding and had red skin because of the extractions for a few days. 

    Dh booked me a massage and mani pedi the day before the wedding and it was GLORIOUS.

    Definitely splurge on something!  As for the timing, that’ll have to depend on your wedding planning and schedule.  The week of the wedding, I knew there was no way I’d have time to do something relaxing, so I did my self care stuff a few weeks beforehand.
