4-5 months before…

- Book two trial spray tans and have both a lighter and deeper colour to find out which you prefer. Make sure you have your spray tan two days before your make-up trial so your make-up artist can work with your skin colour you’ll have on the day.
- Book a make-up and hair consultation with a Secret Spa therapist to help create your signature wedding look.
- Keep up your fitness and healthy eating regime, it will all be worth it when you look sensational in your dress. Try a new exercise class or give one of Deliciously Ella’s books a read for quick, fun ideas to get healthy.
