When planning your wedding, picking a date and dress may be the least of your worries. After all, looking picture-perfect and radiant on your special day takes some planning and work—or months of planning and work. 

We understand that no one wants to look orange in their wedding photos. That’s why we’ve compiled seven pre-wedding beauty treatments to help you prevent any last-minute beauty fiascos. 


This guide will make you look like the glowing, blushing, and beautiful bride when your big day comes. Read on to learn more!


7 Beauty Treatments for Brides-To-Be

1. Microneedling 

Also called collagen induction therapy, microneedling is an invasive cosmetic procedure to treat your skin concerns by stimulating collagen production. This treatment urges your skin to activate its wound-healing process and accelerate collagen production. 


The results?


Scars, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation can be remarkably reduced thanks to increased healthy skin cells. Your overall complexion will be smoother and dewier, while your pores will be smaller. 


When to have it: one or two weeks before your wedding, as skin repair can take between 24 hours and seven days. 


2. Microblading

According to the SPCP (Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals), microblading involves placing pigment or color on the skin, so it’s a tattoo process. It involves needles attached to a tool to create lines resembling eyebrow hairs. In other words, it’s like getting a tattoo, but it is not permanent. 


This semi-permanent procedure allows you to achieve natural brows without worrying about water or sweat. It may take up to a couple of hours, and your eyebrows will be darker immediately after the initial treatment. The color will likely fade after several weeks, and you may need a touch-up. 


Do your research carefully before you get microblading. Ensure to go to someone who does work that looks natural and has a good reputation. 


When to have it: at least two weeks before your wedding, so you’ll have a chance to get used to new brows.


3. Hair glossing treatment

A glossing treatment is essential for silky, shiny tresses. This temporary procedure impacts the health and shade of your hair. If you dye your hair, a gloss can brighten or darken the existing color and make your shade more even.  


This treatment provides richness and vibrancy to your hair while calming frizz and flyaways and smoothing down the cuticle. It refreshes your hair’s hue and provides a high shine lasting about a month. It also helps combat sun damage in the form of brassiness. 


When to have it: a week or a few days before your big day is the perfect time to infuse your hair with shine and radiance.  


4. Waxing and threading

You should book a wax appointment, paying attention to the four key areas: brows, underarms, legs, and bikini line. If you haven’t opted for microblading, consider threading which offers a professional finish with long-lasting results.


When to have it: several days before your wedding to let any irritation subside and before re-growth. 


5. Fake tan

Do you want to top up your glow? A fake tan can add a hint of healthy color to your skin on show. Remember to exfoliate and moisturize your entire body one or two days before your appointment to be guaranteed a smooth application. 


When to have it: two or three days before your wedding to allow time to fade so unsightly marks won’t appear on your white wedding dress. You should also pat talcum powder into body areas that may rub on your dress to avoid unwanted stains. 


6. Plastic surgery 

If you realize more advanced signs of aging on your skin, non-surgical treatments may be insufficient. Plastic surgery can provide more effective results. 


Facelifts are a popular option if you’re looking for a fresh face with fewer lines and more symmetrical features. A brow lift can reverse the gravity effect and smooth and tighten the skin above your eyes, eliminating the worried or tired look that sagging forehead skin gives to your face. 


Besides, you can opt for a lower facelift only. It’ll help you get rid of the nasolabial folds and double chin to regain your old facial structure. 


Notwithstanding the type of plastic surgery you choose, finding the right surgeons is vital. They must have the skills and experience to do safe and aesthetically pleasing work. As a result, you can avoid any potential errors and the threat of surgical malpractice.

However, you can always prepare for this eventuality by doing research, and one of the resource sites you can visit is The Malpractice Center. It’s always better to know what to do in case mishaps happen during this type of surgery.


When to have it: allow for at least 6-8 months between the intervention and your wedding day. 

7. Full body massage

Relax with a full body massage focusing on your most tense areas, like your shoulders and upper back. This treatment is the perfect reward for all your wedding planning and preparation efforts. It ensures your muscles are limber and loose on the day. 


When to have it: perhaps the day before your wedding, when all the planning and preparation are done, and you want to fully unwind. 



This checklist has given you the extra sparkle and oomph necessary for your big day. Now, all you have to do is smile happily and try not to cry (and if you do, the waterproof mascara has got you covered!).
