As you’ll soon discover, one of the most helpful things when it comes to planning your wedding is setting up a wedding timeline. While a wedding timeline can help you for your wedding day and the months leading up to it (with plans for when to send out your Save the Dates and Wedding Invitations), having a beauty timeline is also EXTREMELY helpful.
While we should be taking care of our bodies whether we’re planning a wedding or not, the reality is that most of us ladies tend to put either our fitness, eating, or beauty regime on the back burner when we get busy. But planning a wedding is actually a great excuse for putting those things on top of your priority list.
I, for one, used our upcoming wedding as an excuse to get me and the hubs on a weekly workout plan. We started P90x (which we loved, BTW) and did it most mornings together, which I highly recommend as a fun bonding experience (we still workout together to this day!). I also started getting more serious about my skincare, going for facials and using better skincare products (and starting at-home teeth whitening treatments).
The reality is that these things don’t have to cost a lot of money, either. There are so many facial treatments and workout plans that you can do at home without rushing out to a facialist or trainer/gym if you don’t want to. But if you are able to splurge a bit here and there, it’s a great way to get out of the house and take a little ‘me time’ when you can.
This Ultimate Beauty Timeline from Makeup.com is a great cheatsheet when it comes to putting a beauty and fitness plan in action in the months leading up to your wedding. Even though you definitely don’t have to do everything on this list, it gives you a general idea of what you might want to do for yourself (and when) to get ready for your big day.
