We probably don’t need to tell you why you deserve some amazing beauty treatments. It’s your wedding day, after all, and you’ll want to be glowing! The amazing thing about these treatments is that they are also relaxing. This means you’ll get to unwind and destress just before your Big Day. You’ll look your best but you’ll also feel amazing! What could be more beautiful than a happy bride?
Feel silky smooth with a wax
Typically, if you opt for a facial wax (upper lip, brow or chin) you’ve probably had one before and you know how your skin is going to react. In this case, a couple of days to a week before the wedding will allow you to maximise on this fab beauty treatment and be silky smooth for as long as possible. It’s not uncommon for brides to go for the full package and get their legs, bikini line and underarms waxed too! Say ‘hello’ to no shaving on honeymoon. If you’re new to the world of waxing, we recommend starting this process at least six months before your Big Day so your hair growth can get into a bit of a predictable rhythm.
As for the actual treatment before your wedding day, try and get your waxing done about a week before the wedding. This will allow for enough time in the event of an unprecedented rash, but you’ll still get to enjoy the silky smooth feeling of being hair-free for a couple more weeks.
Speak to your local salon about their options or get in touch with The Beauty Shack.
Get your hair cut and coloured
There’s nothing quite like a fresh cut and colour to make your hair look and feel amazing, shiny and super healthy. Experts recommend getting this done one to two weeks before your wedding day and no later. You want your haircut to ‘settle’ a little and having a little bit of time means that if you have an unusual reaction to the hairdye, there’s time to fix it.
Another word of wisdom: don’t change your hair too drastically just before the wedding. You want to look like yourself, after all. A change is good, but by drastic, we’re talking about going from blonde to brunette two weeks before the wedding. You’ll feel your absolute best if you recognise yourself on your wedding day.

Add a pop of colour with a mani and pedi
The ultimate bridal treat is a mani and pedi! We highly recommend getting your nails done, because all eyes will be on your new wedding ring. It’s also a lovely way to unwind and put your phone aside for a couple of hours during the week of your wedding. If you intend to be quite ‘hands on’ with setting up your wedding decor, try and get your mani done afterwards, if time allows. The last thing you’ll want is chipped nails and this can be avoided! Get your mani and pedi done one or two days before your wedding and you’ll still have fresh, pretty nails on the wedding day and on honeymoon.

Get that glow with a facial
The number one rule with bridal facials is this: Don’t try anything new just before your wedding day. If you are going for a brand new skincare routine, get this started months before your Big Day. The last thing you want is to break out in pimples the day before your wedding. We recommend speaking to the pros about your specific skincare needs and make an informed decision. This way you’ll know what treatments you should be getting and when to get them!
