You are going to be the most important day of your life. You’re probably a master at planning your wedding. But have you ever considered how you could prepare for yourself?
Bridal beauty begins from the inside. It’s crucial to take care of your body, mind, and skin in the weeks leading up to this big event. Pre-wedding preparation is about self-care. This includes exercise and skincare. It also involves your mental health.

12 months before the wedding
Although it may sound early, the 12-month mark is the ideal time to make healthy commitments that you will keep until the big day. These are some things you should consider in the initial stages of wedding planning.
Stress and anxiety can cause severe damage to our bodies. It can lead to acne breakouts, weaken our immune system, and make us feel tired and depressed. To keep your stress levels under control, start planning your wedding early.
These are our top tips to make your wedding planning easy. If you feel overwhelmed or short on time, make sure to have a well-organized to-do list.
Establish healthy habits
You will feel the best on your big day if you establish healthy habits. Throughout your wedding planning process, make certain that you have weekly commitments to your health, fitness, and mental well-being. For example, you could start your weekend with a circuit of exercise, meditation, or yoga.
6 months before the wedding
The 6-month mark is the best time to get serious about your skincare if you want that radiant bridal glow. You will see real results with many products and treatments you use for a few months.
Get Your Skincare Sorted
A consultation with a dermatologist is a great way to improve your skincare routine. They will be able to assess your skin type and skin goals and create a skincare regimen that suits you.
You can also DIY your skincare routine by adding a daily hydrating cream and a weekly mask to your daily routine. Check for active ingredients such as Vitamin A, Vitamin C, or Hyaluronic acid. From here, you might want to book monthly facials.
Make sure to condition those lush locks.
It would be best if you also considered getting your hair in top condition by the 6-month mark. You can either book a salon appointment for a monthly treatment or purchase a hair mask or deep conditioning treatment at home for your hair regularly.
You can also test any major changes to your hair’s colour, length, or style. Then, you can adjust or modify your new look as necessary before finalizing your touch-up.
3 months before the wedding
The next 12 weeks will fly by! It is time to focus on nutrition and health.
Eat the Rainbow
This is where you will want to make sure your diet is rich in nutrients that will help you get that radiant bridal glow. You can start your day with green juices, which will help reduce puffiness and detoxify your body.
Be mindful of your gut health, and eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. You should also ensure you are hydrated by drinking lots of water every day.
Get your skin exfoliated.
Your skin care specialist may recommend that you book in for a monthly microdermabrasion treatment or exfoliant treatment at the 3-month mark. This will remove any skin cells and make your face feel fresh and radiant.
Book Your Beauty Trials
You’ll also want to book your hair, make-up and spray tan trial appointments in these final months. These trials will help you feel confident about your bridal look for the big day.
Consider Your Pearly Whites
You’ll be spending most of your wedding day smiling, so now is the time to get any at-home teeth whitening strips or kits. Talk to your dentist if you are serious about getting whiter teeth.
1-2 weeks before the wedding
It’s all happening right now! These last-minute beauty tips will help you complete your pre-wedding preparations.
Book Your Final Beauty Treatments
You can get all your final beauty treatments: eyebrows, eyelashes and waxing, hair removal, manicure and pedicure, and touch-ups to colour and haircuts. You should schedule your spray tan 2 days before the wedding.
Do not try anything new.
Final skincare preparation is not the right time to experiment with new products in case of reactions or sensitivities. You can continue with your current skincare routine, but you might consider booking an additional hydrating facial to finish the day.
Beat the Bloat
It is a great time to limit foods that cause bloating and puffiness. There are many triggers, but the most common ones include sugar, alcohol, and dairy. Keep drinking lots of water!
