Bridal Beauty Timeline: 12 Months to the Wedding Body You Want


Month 11: Hit the Spa

Now that you're in the crunch time of showers, planning and paying the vendors, you're likely to really need some revitalizing spa treatments. Not only will you enjoy them, but they'll help your overall appearance. While you're booking your appointments, poll your attendants and family to find out who's in for a luxurious spa session.

So what service should you select? A good old-fashioned massage is always a stress reliever. Or, if you're concerned about a plunging backline, book a back facial to get your rear view in tip-top shape. A body scrub or wrap can get you glowing from head to toe, or you can stick with a facial to make sure your mug is in bridal-perfect condition.

Whatever you choose, never wait until the last minute for any type of skin treatment. Often, breakouts follow such services.
