It’s almost here – the day you’ve dreamed about your entire life: your wedding day!  The dress is ready, the RSVPs have been received, and the big day is almost here.  What are you forgetting?  YOU!  Weddings can be crazy busy, stressful times.  Don’t forget to take time and take care of yourself in the time leading up to the big day.

May we suggest:

Schedule a Facial:  You’ll want your skin to be its glowing-best on your wedding day.  We recommend booking a first facial at least three months before your wedding date, and developing a plan with an experienced aesthetician to ensure your skin is photo-worthy on the big day.

Book a Massage, Reiki, or Reflexology Appointment:  The week of the wedding, book some serious quiet time into your week to allow you to refresh, rejuvenate, and reflect on the special season of life you are in.  Choose a quiet, calm activity designed to relax your mind and soothe your body such as massage, reiki, or reflexology.  Looking for some quality time with your fiancé during this busy time?  Consider making it a couples’ appointment!

Meal Plan:  What will you be eating in the days leading up to your wedding?  Spend some time meal planning and meal prepping to ensure your pre-wedding diet includes foods designed to hydrate, refresh, and eliminate bloating.

Pamper with a Mani-Pedi:  Don’t forget to ensure your fingernails and toenails are picture perfect for your wedding day!  Get an appointment booked early for you and the special people in your life, for a day filled with fun.

Envision Your Wedding Morning:  How do you want the morning of your wedding to look?  Are you sipping tea quietly and enjoying a moment of peace before the day’s events?  Are you rocking it out with your bridal squad to your favorite tunes and sipping mimosas?  It’s important to set the stage in advance and ensure your group has a clear understanding of your expectations for your wedding day.

Sneak in a Date:  The week of your wedding is a whirlwind of activities.  Don’t forget the reason you are getting married – to start a beautiful life with your fiancé!  If possible, sneak in a little quiet time for the two of you before the festivities begin.

While we love all of these ideas, we think what is most important is making your wedding experience uniquely yours.  Wishing you a most amazing wedding experience!
