Waxing Newbie - Need Advice

Recommended Posts

My wedding is tomorrow and I'm wanted getting my legs waxed today (for the first time). I've read that you should get it done 3-4 days before your wedding so I'm wondering if I should wait and not get the wax done until after my wedding.  Thanks for your help!

For you legs, it should be fine to get them done the day before.... It's more delicate areas where I would plan ahead a bit. Leg waxing is easy and relatively painless. Just make sure you have enough growth for the wax to grab onto! If you just shaved sometimes in the last week it will likely be too short.

 

Congrats on your wedding being tomorrow!

OMG I'm so jealous of you ladies- I have tried waxing my legs on two separate occasions (by reputable spas....) and my legs were black and blue for WEEKS! I'm so glad I tried legs before more sensitive areas because it is clearly not meant for my fair skin haha :)

Legs would be ok!  

 

I know when I do my eyebrows I break out a little, so I plan to do them a few weeks before my wedding, just in case :)

I've been waxing for many years (since puberty pretty much). The first strip is always the most painful but soon your skin becomes used to it. Also, parts that are closer to bone or that have thicker hair (like your ankles) will be the most painful. My legs turn really red right after but it's gone by the next day. I usually get my waxing done a day before leaving on my vacation because my hair starts growing right away (sad story of my life haha). I think you should be fine having it today, also because if you shave you might have to wait a week or two before the hair is long enough for the wax to grab it. 

 

@@calgarybride2015 the same thing happens to me, when I used to wax them and now that I thread them too. That will definitely be done about a week before haha.

The things we go thru for beauty!

 

I may get my nails done early January to get used to them, and just get a fill a day or two before we leave!!

can't wait to get them, I used to always wear nails but not always practical in my line of work :)

I think I will get a french manicure for my toes too, instead of a color.  Not sure yet -- yes I am considering this stuff now (haha 99 days till we leave!)

    • 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.
