When you’re a bride getting ready for your wedding, you need to plan ahead. After all, if there’s a day in your life when you truly want to look your best, it’s your wedding day. The pictures will stay with you for the rest of your life. 

More importantly, you want to feel comfortable and beautiful, so your joy can shine through every moment, from the first look to the ceremony to the very end of the reception. 

The more time you take to plan out your various beauty treatments, the better. Consider which services you’ll get in the months and weeks before your wedding, as well as the ones that’ll happen on the day of your wedding. In this post, we’ll cover it all, with the ultimate bridal beauty checklist! 

Your Bridal Beauty To-Do List

Here is the ultimate bridal beauty checklist, starting with the beauty treatments to start sooner and moving on to the ones you should book for closer to your wedding date. 

Hair Removal 

The sooner you start thinking about your pre-wedding hair removal, the better, especially if you’d also like to be smooth and hair-free on your honeymoon. 

If your wedding is five or six months away, you have enough time to start laser hair removal. Laser hair removal eliminates hair at the root, and saves you the need to shave or suffer ingrowns at any point during your honeymoon. 

The sooner you start, the less you’ll need to worry about getting rid of hair in the days right before your wedding when chaos reigns supreme. 

Face and Body Treatments

If you have any skin concerns you’d like resolved before your wedding, consider starting a series of facial treatments at least a few months out. 

To address more difficult-to-treat concerns like fine lines, texture, marks, and an uneven skin tone, opt for more powerful treatments like laser skin tightening or RF microneedling. These treatments can also work on the body, to create a firmer, smoother, and more toned appearance. A series of 3 to 6 treatments will improve your skin significantly, making sure you’re picture-perfect for your wedding. 


Another great way to boost your confidence before your wedding is with injectables. Botox and Dysport are ideal if you’re worried about expression wrinkles while fillers add volume for plumper lips, fresher eyes, or fuller cheekbones. 

The best time to get injectables done is around a month before your wedding. Botox takes up to ten days to take hold, relaxing forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet. Hyaluronic acid fillers make an impact immediately, but they can also cause the skin to swell a little, so they often look best two weeks to a few months after they’re injected. 

A Wedding Day Facial

If you’d like a treatment in the weeks or days before your special day, avoid anything too invasive like chemical peels or microneedling. Instead, Forma is the perfect wedding day facial. It’s incredibly relaxing and it’s able to lift and tone the skin immediately. Because it’s so gentle, it’s a perfectly safe option even on the morning of your wedding! 

Hair and Makeup 

Crafting the perfect look for your wedding day also requires some planning ahead. Spend time looking at artist portfolios, and bookmark pictures of makeup and hairstyles you love. 

Once you find the right hairstylist and makeup artist, book your trials for at least a few weeks before the wedding, although two months in advance is ideal. You can even pair your trials with a pre-wedding event like your bridal shower. 

Get Ready for Your Wedding With SEV

You don’t have to wait for a special event to start working on yourself, but it is a great excuse. If you’d like to make sure you’re picture-perfect from head to toe, we’d be honored to take part in your self-care process. 

Whether it’s laser hair removal to get you ready for that wedding night (and many nights to come) or a Forma facial that’ll help you turn heads, don’t hesitate to book your appointment. The sooner you start, the better you’ll look on your special day!
