Bridal Beauty Timeline

Every Bride wants to look their absolute best on their wedding day! We’ve seen lots of different ideas and timelines for preparing for the big day, but we wanted to take it one step forward with some of our favorite spots in the valley for prep and pampering.

1 Year Out

Star to evaluate what bridal beauty means to you! Want to grow out you hair? Star getting into better shape? Get used to walking in heels? Make a list of what you want to improve on before the big day but if you feel like you want to maintain your current gorgeous self, that’s perfect too! Remember that you do have plenty of time until the big day, but things like engagement photos and wedding dress shopping will be happening sooner than you think! Try out a new fitness class with your bridesmaids or make the switch to clean eating.

Our Picks:
RPM Spin Class – get your heart rate up and have fun spinning at what feels like a dance party! You can try out the first class for free, but we know you’ll be hooked.

The Gracious Pantry – this site is amazing for recipes and meal plan ideas to get you on the right track to eating clean! Feel great from the inside out.

6 – 9 Months Out

This point in the planning process might seem to be super stressful, with deposits and decisions popping up at every turn. Remember to keep your stress under control, start a meditation routine or a weekly yoga class to find some zen. This is also a good time to start a skin care regime to ensure the perfect glow on your day! Make sure to be taking vitamins and drinking plenty of water to stay healthy. You’ll be purchasing your dress in this time period too, so don’t forget to keep up with your fitness routine and schedule fittings.

Our Picks:
Urban Yoga – venture to Downtown Phoenix for an amazing yogi experience! The instructors are fabulous and full of positive vibes.

AZ Healthy Skin, Breanna Thomas – make an appointment with Brenna for a skincare regime that will give you a healthier and more beautiful life!

3 – 5 Months Out

The big day is only a few months away and it’s crunch time! Make sure to start scouting out hair dressers and make up artists for the big day. We recommend having someone come on site to give you more time to get ready and enjoy yourself! Schedule any other consults for eyebrow reshaping or a color change to make sure the change is what you want. Look into teeth whitening or test out a spray tan!

Our Picks:
Makeup By Heather Wilson – get ready to be WOWed by Heather, she brings out women’s natural beauty and elevates it to a picture perfect level!

Bronzmopolitan – this Scottsdale-based tanning salon is one of our favorites! Sip on a cocktail or mimosa and enjoy a chick flick while waiting for your airbrush tan inside their studio.

1 – 2 Months Out

At this point, make sure all of your day-of beauty is scheduled and on the books. You will want to do a trial run with your glam squad and bring any accessories you will be wearing! Pick out a signature scent to wear for the first time on your wedding day, every time you smell it you’ll be taken back to the magic. Try to squeeze in a facial and massage for a relaxing day that you most definitely deserve. Do your best to maintain your weight to ensure your gown fits perfectly on your wedding day.

Our Picks:
Nordstrom – their selection of lux perfumes cannot be rivaled, the salespeople are so very helpful in selecting a scent that you (and your groom) will love.
Joya Spa at The Omni Montelucia – you will feel live you’ve stepped into another world when entering the Joya Spa! Their services are heavenly and the service is world-class.

1 – 2 Weeks Out

You’ve almost made it to the big day! Take care of all small beauty tasks the last two weeks, get a final trim and color service, schedule your manicure and pedicure, get your eyebrows waxed, and cut down on foods that cause bloating. Schedule a spray tan (optional) two days out, only if you know how it will turn out! Always make sure nothing is scheduled with enough time to fix any mistakes that may happen! Drink lots of water and wash your face every night.

Our Picks:
Dolce Salon – you will feel like a total princess after a visit to Dolce! Their technicians are fabulous and up to date on the best techniques and styles.

Lunchbox Waxing Salon – this high-end wax salon caters to the clients needs because they know no two brows are alike! You’ll walk out with your brows on fleek and feel amazing.

From here on out maintain your beauty routine to ensure your bridal beauty! Keep stress and alcohol to a minimum to keep your skin looking fresh, but we understand that glass of wine might be necessary. Enjoy this time and remember your groom is going to fall in love all over again no matter how you look when he first sees on your wedding day!
