Diet and Exercise
Make sure not to crash diet. These diets can affect how your dress fits, give you headaches, and make you dizzy. Stick to a steady and healthy diet and work out plan for at least a month or two before the wedding.

Feeling Healthy
Treat yourself to a massage or chiropractic treatment the day before or the day of the wedding. This will leave you relaxed and feeling wonderful.

Consider having a cleaning at the dentist the week of your wedding or having your teeth whitened. There will be tons of smiling and photo taking. Also, avoid things like red wine before the big day.

If you plan on getting a facial before the wedding, have one done in advance to make sure your skin reacts well to the treatment. The day before is not the time to try new things.

Contact your salon or hair stylists 4 months before the big day to make sure they have the date free to style your hair. You might also want to schedule an appointment a few days prior if you are having it dyed or cut.

Many brides do their own makeup, but there are an array of great makeup artists who can do your makeup for you so you look like a celebrity all day. Make sure to book them 4 months in advance as well.

Get a mani-pedi either the day before or the morning of the wedding. You will be shaking a lot of hands and everyone is going to want to see your ring.

For the Men
The groom should get a hair cut a day or two before the wedding. If he shaves, he might want to invest in a good shave at the parlor. Men are often getting mani-pedis now as well. That way their hands look well groomed (without the nail polish of course). Eyebrow waxing should be done a week ahead so that there is not irritation.
