You can find a complete checklist of things to do from engagement to wedding day at the Designer Events website www.designerplanning.com but here are a few things you’ll want to know. First, expect to have all your planning done by two weeks before the wedding. This will give you time to fix all those little things that will present themselves last minute and you’ll be busy those weeks anyway.
Get your hair cut and colored a week to two weeks before the wedding and have a trial run for hair and make-up a few days after that. Remember to take your tiara, veil, headpiece, jewelry and anything that might make a difference in how your hair is done. Take many pictures, upclose and far away, and from all angles when you have your trials done in case your stylist or make-up artist can’t remember just how you liked it.
Spend time with friends and family during these two weeks. Leave a couple days between the bachelorette party and the wedding day. You don’t want puffy eyes and a red nose in your wedding pictures.
Drink half your weight in ounces for several days before the wedding to ensure glowing, healthy skin. Do NOT do anything drastic to change the way you look right before your wedding. Don’t color your hair something that you haven’t done before and don’t try a new self-tanner that you haven’t tried before. A few months before is the time to experiment with these things. Stay away from facials or scrubs for about a week before, because this could cause breakouts or redness.
Block out those last two weeks as the fun and games weeks! After some long months of planning and preparation, you finally get to relax a little and have some fun. And it’s all leading up to that very special day you’ve been waiting for.
