    I got my highlights touched up and I got a bikini wax. I also got a manicure/pedicure. Otherwise, same routine as normal.

    The month before I got a facial, eyebrow and face wax (well, full-face sugaring wax on upper lip), final hair highlights. Extensions one or two weeks before.

    The week of we had guests and packed for our DW but one of my few regrets was not getting a massage. It would have helped so much!

    My mom gave me a gift card for a zero float spa, getting my brows waxed, hair cut/colored and nails done

    I scheduled a massage for my FH and I. It's been intense for both of us.

    You should try the waxing!! It’s a life changer!! The first time I did it I was freaking out just thinking of the process you know lol. Well I’m glad I did because that is all I do now!!! It last so much longer (about 2 months) compared to shaving and OMG so smooth!! Smooth like a baby!! My FH loves it!!!

    It only hurts a little while doing it (for me) I do a Brazilian wax... by the time she’s done you shouldn’t have any pain. Just find a good place, because that makes a huge difference!!!

    They have a tank full of water at like.. 73 degrees.. and a TON of salts that allow your body to just float effortlessly. It's so relaxing Similar to a massage but its just you, some calm music, and water.

    I have pretty sensitive skin so Brazilian will be sensitive/sore, I wouldn't say hurt, for like a day and only on the pelvis area. My waxer said based on the way my skin, especially my face, reacts I might have a slight sensitivity/allergy to honey.

    I agree I LOVE waxing ❤️✨and it’s so nice to have that as part of my routine once a month or two so that the showers I take don’t take forever, don’t have to deal with razor burn, or especially that thing where it’s hot in the shower but cold in the bathroom. So if you shaved and didn’t wax once you get out of the shower into the freezing bathroom you get goosebumps on your legs and BOOM.....You have hair again. 🤣 or is this experience just me? 😂 😆
    what I plan on doing is possibly getting a spray tan (if I don’t have time to tan naturally, which I probably won’t due to my job unfortunately), full body wax including underarms/upper & lower legs, Brazilian and fingers/toes, upper lip wax, mani/pedi. Would love to also receive a massage however similar to the tanning situation may have to skip the massage entirely until the honeymoon.

    Sugaring (legs, underarms, Brazilian), brow wax and tint, spray tan and a dip manicure before we leave for our destination wedding since we’re doing Bach party weekend when we first fly in. I’m also get a spray tan touch up a couple days before the big day and my mom wants to take me for a massage or facial. Hopefully my nails stay good for the week and I won’t worry about that again. Probably opt for a new pedi. My last one was in May but the gel just stays forever, lol.

    I will be getting me extensions done the weekend before the wedding, mani/pedi, brow wax, brazilian wax, and a massage a few days before. I've done laser hair removal under my arms and legs so no shaving required and I also plan to spend the night before the wedding alone with some benadryl and a hot shower at the hotel. I really want to be well rested ...
