Once a bride gets engaged she starts planning her pre-wedding events, wedding, all her looks, and dresses, but what about her beauty? Just like any other planning checklist related to your wedding, you need to have one for your health and beauty!
Don't leave your beauty and health routines and treatments until the last minute before your wedding day.
You should start taking care of your teeth, skin, hair, nails, and your diet and exercise months before the wedding. 6 months will pass by in no time, so make sure to follow these steps and start scheduling your treatments as soon as you get that ring on your finger!
We are here to help you prioritize your health, fitness, and beauty tasks in the form of a countdown starting 6 months ahead of your wedding.
