Eight months before…
Let’s talk skincare..
With just over half a year before your wedding day, it’s time to book in with your beauty specialist. Find a routine that works for you and your skin and keep to it for better results. Don’t forget to moisturise day and night!
The eight month mark is the perfect time to begin receiving regular facials. It’s great to take time out from planning and to talk with a specialist to see how your skin care is going. Avoid having a facial one week prior to your wedding as it can lead to break outs!
Wanting glowing skin and shiny lush hair on the day? Take your vitamins every day from this point leading up to your wedding and be left feeling and looking refreshed.
Fitness and Nutrition Plan
A healthy balanced diet is the perfect way to have your skin, hair and nails looking great. Avoid any crash one week diets before your wedding by forming good habits now.
Six months before...
Hair & Makeup Trials
It’s never too early to trial different hair and makeup looks, so visit your hairdresser and makeup artist to discuss some of your ideas. Know what colour you want to be in six months time and start planning your hair appointments from now. Don’t forget to book in treatment days for your hair as well!
Experiment with different makeup looks and don’t be afraid to book in with multiple artists to find the best fit for you and your skin.
To ensure you have the perfect brow, book your appointments in advance. Growing out your brows can take a few months, so allowing time can help you to achieve the perfect arches.
Four months before…
By this point it is best to have locked in your hairdresser and makeup artist for the day and have settled on your look.
Two months before…
If you’re the type of bride that loves a great tan, plan ahead. Finding a great tan can be a difficult task and nothing is worse then being left streaky and orange on the day. Find the colour tone that suits you and reacts to your skin best.

Make sure you’re well rested on the day by ensuring you’ve had 8-10 hours sleep prior.
