Obviously you want to look your best and feel wonderful on your wedding day. To achieve this you need not only to plan, but also to act, ideally at least six months in advance of your big day.
Beauty treatments and fitness should commence as soon as you can. The range of treatments are huge including waxing, facial, teeth whitening and manicure, to name but a few. Timing is especially important when it comes to hair and makeup, and to ensure you look your best on your wedding day, consider a trial well in advance.
There are a whole range of experts to help you including fitness training and hair and beauty specialists. It is unlikely you will be able to cover everything yourself so consult a professional. Whatever you do, don't leave everything until the last minute.
Here’s some great ideas from hair, beauty and fitness businesses based in Essex from places like Colchester, Harlow, Southend, Chelmsford, Grays, Braintree and Clacton, whom you might want to get in touch with...
Don't forget to mention An Essex Wedding magazine when contacting a hair, beauty or fitness professional.
