Wedding day essentials
Eat a rainbow of food and drink ALL the water! Your skin will thank you for it.
Any at home or salon based facials should be carried out months before the big day to ensure you have no break outs or adverse reactions. A reputable skincare specialist will be able to advise you on the frequency of any treatments, but will probably agree that T-minus 2 days to wedding day is not an ideal time to start poking around with your pores!

Get a massage. All that wedding planning is hard work, treat yo’self!
Practice doing up your dress with your bridesmaid or mum, it can take longer than you think!
If hiring men’s suits check them and try them on as soon as you’ve collected them.
