Your wedding day is all about you, so why should the week leading up to it be any different? Indulge in these beauty treatments so you can look and feel your best on your big day.
A good wax
Let’s face it: You want your wedding day and night to go off without a hitch, and worrying about shaving your legs or dealing with ingrown hairs the morning of is no way to feel like the beautiful bride you are. So a week before the big day, indulge in a professional wax. Make sure the appointment isn’t too close to the wedding in case you experience any irritation or redness.
A relaxing facial
You’re likely to have more photos of your wedding day than of any other moment in your life. So it’s only natural that you want to look your best. Ensure your skin is radiant and glowing on your big day by booking a facial in the week leading up to your wedding. Book it for at least five days before the actual event in case you’re left with any redness, and stick to your usual skin-care routine before and after. The facial massage alone will do wonders to help you de-stress, and the added benefits of steam to declog pores and special creams to moisturize and cleanse will ensure you look your best when your big day arrives.
A stress-relieving massage
Wedding planning, as fun as it is, can be unbelievably stressful. You can wind up with a lot of tension in your body that you certainly don’t want lingering on your wedding day. Though the week leading up to your wedding might be packed with last-minute tasks, set aside some time for an hour-long, full-body massage. Your body and your mind will thank you for it!
A mani-pedi party
Treating the ladies of your bridal party to manicures and pedicures is a great way to thank them for all their hard work. Make a day of it! Bring Champagne and maybe a few appetizers so you can relax and enjoy what is just around the corner. Just make sure to have it only a day or two before the wedding so you don’t have any chipping the day of.
