blow LTD reveal their top five beauty treatments to help you and your bridal party prepare for the big day
There’s a lot to remember when it comes to planning your wedding: table plans, colour schemes, flowers… the list seems never ending. So you’d be forgiven for forgetting about yourself during this time.
Luckily, bridal hair, make-up and beauty treatment experts blow LTD are here to help. They’ve given us their pick of the top beauty services a bride should be thinking about before and on her big day.
Nails worthy of the ring
With a gorgeous engagement ring already on show and the wedding band to come, your hands are going to be getting a lot of attention in the coming weeks, so you want to ensure your nails are looking their best for the occasion.
You’ll of course want a manicure for the engagement shoot (no one wants chipped nails) but don’t forget about the big day either! A pamper session the night before, either on your own or with your bridal party, provides a great opportunity to relax and banish any pre-wedding jitters. And if you’re heading out on honeymoon straight after the reception, opt for a gel polish, this will ensure there’s no chip in sight for up to two weeks.
A de-stressing massage
Planning can be stressful, there’s no denying it. With so many different things to think about, it can be easy to let it take over – so it’s important to make sure you’re taking time for yourself, and a massage is the perfect way to do this.
Whether you need a relaxing aromatherapy or an invigorating deep tissue massage, it provides the perfect opportunity not only to relax but to clear your head of all the things on the to-do list.
What’s more, the improved circulation a massage brings will add a healthy glow to your skin. To get the full relaxing benefits of a massage, it’s best to have monthly treatments, but if budget won’t allow it at least treat yourself to one in the run up – you won’t regret it!
The pre-wedding wax
With many brides nowadays opting against traditional gowns and selecting something shorter, there’s even more chance of skin being on show, and a wax is a great option for removing any hair should you want to.
Ideally, you’ll get into a routine of waxing every four weeks on the run up to the wedding (as the growth cycle of hairs on areas like your legs can take some time to sync up), but if you’ve not thought ahead, fear not. Booking in two weeks before the big day will ensure any redness has gone down while still leaving you silky smooth.
The natural lash lift
Whether you love the natural look or prefer a glamorous style, an LVL lash lift is the perfect pre-wedding treatment for any bride. LVL lifts, tints and curls your lashes, so when the big day rolls around you may not even want to wear mascara at all (ideal for brides who are a bit worried about running mascara).
Give yourself a trial run a few months before so you can plan your make-up accordingly, then booking in one week before the wedding for the final lift. LVL lasts around six weeks, meaning your lashes will still look amazing not only on the big day, but long after the honeymoon as well.
Big-day beautifying for everyone
On a list dedicated to bridal beauty, who could miss out the wedding day itself? Leaving your hair and make-up and your bridal parties hair and make-up to a professional means you can relax and enjoy being pampered on the morning, safe in the knowledge your experts will create looks that will last all day and look great in photos. Check out 25 of the most breathtaking wedding photos from 2017.
Our stylists will also travel out to wherever you’re getting ready, which means you don’t even have to worry about waking up early to get to a salon, so there’s more time for beauty sleep (or prosecco!)
If you’re a little nervous about leaving this to someone else, a trial is a fantastic opportunity to get to know your stylist and plan out your dream bridal look. Book in a trial run two months before the wedding to allow plenty of time – you’ll also have your dress and theme chosen by then, which will help you decide on the style you’d like.
