The Months Before Your Big Day
Wedding prep starts early. Here are our recommendations for ensuring your photo-ready for all of the happenings leading up to the big event.
Engagement Photos + Bridal Shower
For your engagement photos milk + honey recommends a Blowout and Makeup Application, which consists of a shampoo and style. This will give you some time with your stylist and time to connect with your stylist about your big day. For your bridal shower, we also recommend a Blowout and Makeup Application will make sure your bridal shower will go a little smoother.
Hair + Makeup Trials
Speaking of hair and makeup, the best way to feel comfortable and confident about the big day is to have Hair and Makeup Trials. This ensures that you have time for adjustments before the wedding. If you are requesting an updo it’s best to have a clear vision of what you want. Bring pictures, but keep your expectations reasonable. Many bridal magazines use hair extensions and special lighting to create these looks and they are often difficult to recreate in the real world. Hair and makeup trials are a must and don’t forget the veil, clips, and hairpieces. These are an integral part of your final look.
Prepping Your Skin
If you are planning on waxing or prepping your skin before your wedding, planning ahead is key. Make sure you know how your skin reacts to waxing and facials. We always suggest planning out a “wedding prep” schedule with your Esthetician. Perhaps a Back Treatment or Peel Treatment will help give you glowing skin.
Already starting to feel overwhelmed? Take time for yourself during these hectic months of planning and schedule a Signature Massage. You won’t regret it.

Hair, Skin, and Lashes
If you’d like to cut or color your hair, we recommend working out a schedule with your stylist.
For that perfect glow, get a Signature Facial one week before your wedding, and do a light exfoliation on your big day. That way, your skin will be dewy, fresh and your makeup will go on nice and smooth. If you’d enjoy extra extractions with your facial, we recommend two weeks before your wedding day so your skin has the proper amount of time to fully respond to the treatment. Backless dress? Come in for a Back Treatment or yummy Peel Treatment to remove any dry skin. Remember, the skin on your face isn’t the only skin that needs to be taken care of.
Waxing on the face needs to happen at least five days prior to the big day — in case some redness occurs, your skin has plenty of time to calm down. What about Bikini or Brazilian waxes? We recommend at least 2-3 days before the wedding day.
Lash extensions are also a great trick to staying photo-ready at all times and will help accentuate your eyes during all of the wedding festivities.
The Week Before
Getting nervous? Take a deep breath and don’t worry. Even though the wedding is just days away, milk + honey is here when it matters most. Staying stress-free is incredibly important in the days leading up to your wedding. We suggest a massage or nail service this week. Brides have a lot on their minds and already have a jam-packed schedule leading up to the event.

Final Prep Checklist
You’ve already scheduled your final hair and makeup appointment. Just show up, and we’ll take care of the rest. Speaking of “rest,” this is YOUR day. For breakfast, have your usual and perhaps drink some green tea to balance out the excess adrenaline.
If you feel a little puffy from the rehearsal dinner the night before, consider facial rolling to help relieve puffiness and don’t forget to hydrate! If your wedding is outdoors, apply sunscreen, you don’t want to damage your skin before the honeymoon.
The Days After
We haven’t forgotten about a very important part of the equation — the Groom! Don’t forget we offer a full range of spa treatments for men. We suggest spending the day following your wedding together with a Couples Retreat. It’s a great way to start the rest of your life.
