When a woman gets married, of course she wants to look her best. All eyes will be on the bride all day, so it’s crucial that you look stunning from head to toe. Even beyond the day itself, you will want wedding photos you can cherish forever, so you want to make sure you’re looking flawless. While you might want to do a DIY job on your beauty regime, it can be far less stressful to hand over your beauty treatments to a professional for the best finish. We’ve compiled a list of the essential beauty treatments for brides to make it easier for you.

If you want that coveted bridal glow, you’ll need to do more than slap on some moisturiser the day before the wedding. You will also need to make sure you pay attention to the face and body. A facial can be a good way to get rid of toxins to reduce the risk of any unsightly blemishes on the big day, and to get perfectly soft, supple skin, a body wrap could be the way to go, where you lay wrapped in cloth soaked in essential oils or clay which gently heats on the body for a more effective treatments.

The hands are a very important part of the day. You don’t want to be showing off your wedding ring on hands topped with bitten nails coated in chipped varnish. Instead, a bridal nail appointment can be all you need for gorgeous hands. Go for a subtle shade of varnish – a pale pink or elegant French manicure are ideal for brides. If your own nails are in a terrible condition, get false nails applied. Gel nails are the most popular and natural-looking.

Not every bride will want a tan on their big day, but if you’re getting married abroad on a beach or in the middle of summer, you might want a bit of colour so you look extra radiant in your dress. If you’re going to go for it, remember to keep it subtle and sunkissed and to get it done far enough in advance – nobody wants to be an orange bride!

On the day you might have a hairdresser coming to tame your tresses into a classic updo, or maybe you’re leaving your hair loose and wavy. Either way, leave it looking shiny and healthy with a hair treatment. Argan oil treatments are sweeping the nation’s salons, and will restore life to tired, lacklustre locks.
