Wedding Day Beauty Prep

Recommended Posts

Ok - so in order to look our best, what should I be getting done and how early in advance should I be doing it? I've only ever had one facial, but I'm thinking that I need to get one at least three months out - do you then get one every month b/f the wedding? I'm also thinking about doing the teeth whitening thing - from the Crest white strips. Should I start doing that six months out?

Definitly don't do the facial right before! My friend had it done the day before. Her skin was so red. It looked find at the wedding, but was really stressful.

 

I'd start the white strips ASAP. You may notice some sensitivity and not want to do it all out for 6 months. I suggest getting sensitive toothpaste. I've been bleaching now to get ready for our engagement pictures next weekend. I will keep it up, but less frequent until the wedding. The few months before I'll start doing it more often. It makes my teeth really sensitive, so i can't do it as often as suggested.

 

I also started keeping track of how long it takes my nails to get to the length I like. Now I know to cut them 2 months before the wedding for them to be long, but not ready to break.

 

The other thing I've been working on is getting my eyebrows in shape. I started growing them out last year to fix overplucking I had done before. I went to a pro to help me shape them. I finally had them great & then she moved out of state. The new girl messed one up! So now I'm back to that process.

 

Looking good is so much work!

Thanks, Morgan! Those are all VERY helpful tips - I need as much beauty help as I can get - I typically am not really focused on looking great all of the time, or even 95% of the time, but I want to knock my FI out on our wedding day. :-)

I'm the same way. I don't usually worry about beauty much. It's been a little stressful for me to think about all this to try to look just right for our engagement pictures.

 

I also plan on going to a Sephora next week & getting a free makeover to try new looks. I'm buying bare essentials, because I've heard so many great things about it. I plan on going back later & getting a bridal makeover, so I'll know what to do. I plan on doing my own makeup.

 

Oh, & my last beauty thing I have going on right now is growing out my hair. I haven't decided between an updo or half up/ half down. If it will be an updo, I don't plan on growing it much past my shoulders. If I'm wearing it half down, I want long curls & that will mean I need to grow it out starting now.

I am doing a facial, waxing, crest teeth whitening, highlights, and mani and pedi. For the facial, you should not get them more often than once every 3 months at the MOST, and that mitgh irritate your skin. I would get it once now, and once 2 weeks before the wedding. I think the 7 day crest whitestrips work well, so i am just doing it once a week beforehand. I am doing my highlighst 2 weeks beforehand, and nails and waxing the weekend before I leave.

I would suggest trying the 7 day strips at another time before the wedding & see how they make your teeth feel. You don't want to have painful sensitive teeth at the wedding. I know I'm an extreme case, because I already have sensitive teeth & the bleaching just adds to it, but everyone gets some sensitivity. When i first started bleaching the pain drove me crazy. It would've ruined my vacation.

It's best not to do anything drastic or try anything new when you're at a week or two before the wedding. I wouldn't try any new products or creams on your face, any facials, lasering and such when it's so close to crunch time.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
