First comes love… but then it’s time for lehenga shopping, blow outs, manicures, spa treatments and so much more. There's so much to do to plan your wedding—who's got time to think of beauty? We do! Here's your ultimate planner on how to take care of your skin a month before the wedding.

Make sure that this isn’t a chemical peel or a treatment as such. It should just be a hydrating facial for that final glow! Scrub-a-dub-dub: Don’t forget to scrub your elbows and knees. This is the one thing most brides forget about. Add salt scrubs to your bath routine. The sodium bicarbonate will break down dry patches and make your skin a sponge for moisture. Goodbye Makeup: The month before the wedding is full of appointments, functions and craziness. Don’t forget to take off your makeup every night before you crash. We know, it’s tiring but it’ll help you glow on your D-day! Tress Talk: Get a hydrating or a gloss treatment at your salon for shiny locks on your wedding day, and trim any split ends while you’re there. DO NOT make any drastic changes. Brow Game: Get your brows waxed, threaded, or shaped at the two-week mark—tweeze any stray hairs at least one day before your wedding to avoid redness. Wear SPF...everywhere! : Also on your lips. It's easier to prevent your lips from getting chapped than it is to repair them if they're already dry and cracked. If you spend lots of time outdoors, especially in windy, sunny or cold weather, a thick balm with SPF 30 will keep your lips hydrated. Massage On: Get a massage a day before all your functions start. This will allow you some alone time, help your body relax and also have you glowing the next day! DIY Beauty Kit: lipstick and gloss for touch-ups, concealer, blotting papers, Q-tips, translucent powder, breath mints, toothpicks, tissues, medicines, deodorant, baby powder, bobby pins, a mini can of hair spray, and Band-Aids. Beauty Sleep: Make sure that you are sleeping well throughout. We know that its kind off impossible with all the wedding stress but at least try maintaining a body clock. The best thing you can do at this point is to get some shut-eye—you’ve done your work, now take some time to relax (or at least try to). A soothing eye mask will help sleep easy.

Wedding Day Tips…
- Eat a high-protein breakfast and don't bank on eating food later. You likely won't.
- Three hours before, start makeup.
- Two hours before, start your hair.
- One hour before, get some pictures clicked with your girls. Also, check if you need to take anything to the mandap.
- Fifteen minutes before, touch up your makeup, consider a shot of tequila, and pop in a breath mint, not gum…mint!
- Walk out there and knock 'em dead!
