Do a basic facial
Go to your esthetician. If you’ve never gotten a facial, test it out at least three months before your wedding day to avoid extreme reactions.

If you opt to do your makeup, book a bridal beauty lesson with a pro. They can help guide you and give you pro recommendations for the right product to leave looking like a supermodel come wedding day.
