9-12 Months Before Your Wedding

This is the time to get your date reserved, contract signed, and collect you and your bridal parties information. Also start giving thought to the different bridal packages that are offered. If you are looking for a little more help and ease at getting the process started, speak with your dedicated bridal concierge who is happy to answer any questions you may have, and perhaps make some recommendations based on your expectations.

Now start thinking about how to make your skin glow! Meet with an Aesthetician or Aesthetic nurse, most will provide a complimentary consultation.  They will listen to all wants and hopes you have for your skin and complexion, do a skin analysis and then make their recommendations to work towards achieving that goal of flawless skin using their arsenal of treatments and beauty products. When is the appropriate time to use botox or fillers? Your industry pro will be happy to discuss and advise you as to when, where and how.

You may also want to meet with your hairstylist if you’re having any thoughts on making any changes to your hair such as color, cut or overall style. Discuss hair color processes, style desires, hair extensions, curl relaxers and smoothing treatments. This way you’ll be able to get a time frame necessary for achieving your perfect look.

There are a wonderful variety of group based spa services, such as; mini massage and facials, manicures, pedicures… And if you’re in the need of true relaxation, don’t forget to ask what beverage or snack packages are available for your event. Such as champagne and mimosas, as well as sweet and savory snack boards you can order. This is a great time to check in with your bridal concierge regarding food and/or beverage packages for your wedding day preparations.
