As your wedding nears, you should be done with the tedious errands and start taking care of yourself. It doesn’t matter if your coffee table arrived, or if you haven’t shopped for all your home accessories yet, you (the bride-to-be!) are the one that matters. How you deal with your skin, your weight, your health, and your hair, will affect the way you’ll look on your wedding day. For glowing skin, fabulous hair and all round amazing bridal look, follow my wedding checklist for your skincare, makeup and hair routine before your big day comes…
How to take care of your hair before your wedding:
1. It is extremely important to take care of your hair, so that you can style it in whatever way you want, remember that tired hair does not look good. Six months before your wedding, start doing regular hair treatments and
2. I cannot stress this enough, the earlier the better when it comes to booking anything for your wedding. 8-6 months before your wedding, you should start looking for a hairdresser that makes you feel comfortable and and start going for hair trials, to find the right hairstyle for your wedding day. Hopefully by then, you would have already picked out your dress, to
3. If you keep up with a perfect bridal hair routine before your wedding, head in for your final trim at least 3 months before your wedding. Do not cut after that, as you want your hair looking thick and full for your bridal hair-do. To try and prevent split ends, do not blow dry your hair, air dry more often, and stick to
P.S. Make sure you go to your regular hair colorist, someone you trust, to guarantee no color faux pas. If you are not sure the color will come out the way you want it, either don’t it, or go for something standard.
Skincare for the bride-to-be:
No bride wants dull looking skin on her wedding, but, in order to get glowing skin on your wedding you really need to look after your skin way before your big bay. Six months prior, begin the wedding skincare routine:
3. Use sunblock! The last thing you want are tan lines or dehydrated skin. Apply sunblock to your face daily to protect your skin from from harmful sun rays.

Go in for your mani/pedi one day before your wedding, that way you will ensure it still looks primped and shiny. If you don’t have time and went in for an earlier appointment, add some shine to your nails with a top coat a day before your wedding.
Hair removal sessions before the wedding:

How to decide on your bridal makeup:
