You’ll want to look your very best on your wedding day, and your skin will play a big role in that. However, do you really need to start thinking about wedding day skin a whole six months before your big day?

Ideally, yes, because deep changes in the skin, meaning the changes that are capable of giving you the skin of your dreams versus a temporary fix, don’t happen overnight. That said, if you only have a few weeks, or even days, before your wedding, this checklist can still help you. However, for everyone else, giving your skin six months of extra attention will bring you that ravishing bridal glow that you see on all of your favourite Pinterest boards.

6 Months Before the Big Day

It may seem like you still have plenty of time before your wedding, but, trust us, the next six months will fly by. Now is the perfect time to take control of your skin and make a start on dealing with any major skin concerns.

Identify Your Main Skin Concerns

Close your eyes and imagine your ideal wedding day. What does your skin look like?

Now, make a list of everything that’s standing in your way of achieving that skin. Is it acne? Dark spots? Wrinkles? All of that and more? Don’t worry if your list looks ominous – once you have identified each individual issue, you’ll be able to make a plan to deal with them.

There are many treatment options out there, some of which we’ll be talking you through. However, if any of your skin concerns are severe, now is the time to take that list you’ve made to a reputable dermatologist.

Consider a Chemical Peel

Don’t let the name put you off – chemical peels are basically a form of exfoliation. The difference is that their effects are more intense. This makes them capable of treating everything from breakouts and dark spots to dryness and wrinkles.

Peels are available in three strengths; superficial, medium, and deep. The strength that you choose will dictate how much downtime your skin needs after your peel.

Peels work best when used as a series of treatments, but you obviously don’t want to be dealing with the above-mentioned downtime on your wedding day. So, book yourself in for monthly peels for the next five months, with your last peel two weeks before your wedding day.

Look Into a Course of Laser Treatments to Clear Acne and Unwanted Hairs

Regular peels are great for beating breakouts, but if you really want to banish your acne, a course of laser treatments will work wonders. While you’ll notice some results after your first treatment, two or three sessions are needed for maximum benefits. Start now and you’ll have a beautifully clear complexion just in time for your wedding.

The Pre-Regimen Beauty Checklist Every Bride Should Follow Before the Big Day

So you’ve found your venue, decided on catering, invited the people with whom you want to share your big day, made reservations for the most romantic honeymoon, and picked out your dream gown at Best for Bride. That was a lot, and we know wedding planning isn’t always effortless. And as if that wasn’t enough, there is still more to be done. As you approach the date to say “I do,” you’ll also want to focus on making a beauty regimen.

Feeling good—inside and out—is not only for the photos, your family and friends, or even your new spouse, but rather, for yourself. You will always remember this day, hopefully in the best light.

Prepare the Wedding Budget

Weddings are expensive affairs, and this is the right time to discuss finances with your fiancé.

Calculate the maximum amount you can afford to spend. Then, divide the funds into different expenses. Some of the important factors to consider at this point are:

  • Who pays for the wedding? Are your families/other generous relatives contributing? If so, how much will they be paying?
  • What are your priorities—venue, décor, entertainment, food, honeymoon?
  • What tools will you use to jot down and track expenses? Do you prefer the pen and paper route, spreadsheets or a budget planning app?
