The countdown to the big day is on! The dress is sorted, the venue booked, the guests invited…time for some TLC!
Planning a wedding can be a stressful time, so its important to make sure you put some time aside for a pre-wedding pamper, so we’ve outlined a few tips to help you look your best on the big day! This is the My Spa Pass Bridal Beauty Checklist:
6-9 MONTHS UNTIL THE BiG DAY
It’s time to start thinking about the look you want for your big day, consider your dress, the theme of your wedding and the grooms outfit to ensure your hair and make up complements perfectly.
Look into wedding make up artists and collect some pricing information and ask for examples of bridal looks they’ve created, to build a picture of what you would like.
Its also a good time to think about your skincare routine to get your skin glowing. Our Partner spas have skincare experts who can help you decide on the right products for you and your skin type. You could also try having regular facials over the next few months to get your skin in tip-top condition.
Think about your hair, what style would you like? What colour? Do you want to grow your hair? These are all things you can discuss with your hairdresser, and its good to try out any colour changes well in advance so you’ve got time to get used to them.
3-6 MONTHS BEFORE THE BIG DAY
Arrange a trial for your wedding make up look, and a trial for your hair so you can see how you’ll look on the big day! If you’re hair is dry or damaged start some weekly conditioning treatments to improve it and keep them up until the big day.
1 WEEK UNTIL THE BIG DAY
With just a week to go until the big day, it’s the perfect time to book any eye-brow shaping and tinting, any eye lash treatments such as extensions and any waxing treatments.
If you’ve kept up with your beauty regime, your hair and skin should be looking fantastic by now!
3 days before the big day is the perfect time for a spray tan if you need one. This way your tan will be looking fresh, natural and sun-kissed ready for when you make your grand entrance! Remember that a tan will affect the look of your make up, so speak to your make up artist in advance so they can prepare the right colours for your skin. There are different tones of spray tan available, but just ask if you’re unsure.
Treat your hands and feet to a relaxing manicure and pedicure, and don’t forget the groom too, his hands will be photographed plenty throughout the day! And why not book yourselves in for a couple massage so you’re both nice and relaxed ready to enjoy your big day together?

THE BIG DAY
The big day is finally here! Time to relax and let your make up artist and hairdresser do their work. Allow plenty of time to get ready so you’re not rushing, add an extra half an hour on to be sure! It’s a good idea to wear a dressing gown or button up top while you’re having your make up done, then you won’t smudge it while getting dressed. Then just relax and enjoy your big day!
