Your wedding is an incredibly important day, and you want to look your very best. With so many factors to think about, including finding the perfect location, picking out flowers, choosing the best meal and others, you may not even consider that you need to start your beauty regimen months before the big day to emphasize your natural charms and help you glow with confidence.
Knowing what you're getting into a head of time will guarantee that you plan accordingly. We've put together a wedding day timeline to ensure that you look and feel your best when you finally walk down the aisle.
5 to 6 Months Before Your Wedding
When it comes to your wedding day getting-ready timeline, if you're like a lot of brides or grooms, you want to look astounding in your attire. That may mean losing some weight or at least ensuring you are comfortable with how your body feels and looks.
Five to six months before your wedding day is the best time to put together a health and fitness plan. You might consider talking to a certified dietician and/or signing up for yoga classes or working with a personal trainer. If you're looking for something fun and fit, try dance classes or other active pastimes.
3 to 4 Months Before Your Wedding
Have you been thinking about doing something different with your hair for your wedding? Maybe dyeing it a different color or cutting it?
If so, you'll want to start experimenting three to four months before the actual wedding day. This way, if something goes wrong, there's still plenty of time to fix it before your big day. The last thing you want is to look at your wedding photos and be disappointed with your hair.
In addition, this also gives you the chance to try out some new makeup techniques and figure out how long the process will take. At some point, you will ask yourself, how long does bridal hair and makeup take?
The answer to this question will depend on how you're styling your hair and what look you are creating with your makeup. You'll be able to answer it several months before because you'll have already gone through the process.
1 to 2 Months Before Your Wedding Day
At this point, you'll want to finalize your looks for your wedding day. If you find yourself asking if you should do wedding hair or makeup first, now is the time to decide. More often than not, getting your makeup done first can be beneficial because you may want to pull your hair up and out of the way for that, but have it down for the wedding.
However, it will also depend on exactly what you're doing with your makeup and hair. Putting a wedding hair and makeup schedule template together one to two months before your wedding will reduce your stress and make you look amazing.
This is also the time when you want to start whitening your teeth. It doesn't matter if you decide to use an at-home teeth whitening kit or get professional whitening, the more dazzling your teeth look, the better you'll feel.
There are many different options you can consider when it comes to at-home teeth whitening. Whether you use GLO Vials, the GLO Lit device or the GLO Brilliant device, you'll be able to see results in as few as five to seven days.
Being able to get results that fast may make it seem silly to start whitening one to two months ahead of time, but to ensure that your teeth are as brilliant as you want them to be, it's much easier to get your desired results now and maintain them. You don't want to start a week before your big day and realize your teeth aren't as white as you had hoped.
1 to 3 Weeks Before Your Wedding Day
At this point, you'll want to get your hair trimmed. Two weeks before the wedding, get your hair colored if you're planning to so that it looks bright before the big day. Remember, at this point, you don't want to try anything new. You have already finalized your wedding day look, and that's the one you should stick to.
You might also consider getting a facial and any waxing that you want done. Since these processes can irritate your skin, getting them done a while beforehand will make sure that any redness or bumps disappear before your wedding day.
Now is a good time to get a massage. Your stress levels will probably be pretty high at this point, and doing something to reduce your discomfort and worry will help you be focus on looking forward to walking down the aisle.
3 Days Before Your Wedding
Now is the time to get a manicure and pedicure and a spray tan (if you've decided to go that route). You'll also want to put together your makeup and hair kit so that you have everything you need to get yourself ready for your wedding.
Your Wedding Day
On the day of your wedding, plan accordingly. Your hair and makeup should be done two to three hours before the ceremony. This shouldn't be hard to determine since you've already gone through the process months before and know exactly what needs to be done.
You might also consider using GLO Vials to ensure that your teeth are as white as possible, or add some ECO Balance Oral Health Care Booster with Hydrogen Peroxide to your toothpaste to ensure your smile looks brilliant and feels fresh and healthy.
Then, take some deep breaths and get ready to join your life with the person you love.
