As your big day quickly approaches, do not tempt fate by making a beauty error. These unfortunate mistakes may be divided into two categories, the week before your wedding and the day of your wedding. Read on to learn about wedding beauty treatments to avoid before your wedding.

Beauty Treatments to Avoid the Week Before Your Wedding


Botox temporarily paralysis your face muscles and takes about 3 – 5 days to work. If you have never used Botox, try it 6 months before your wedding to make sure there are no side effects.

Lip Plumping

Sidestep lip plumping; fillers can make your lips look swollen and result in minor bruising the requires approximately 2 – 4 weeks to heal.

Chemical Peels

If you receive a chemical peel the week of your wedding, you risk dry flaky skin and makeup application challenges. Get a chemical peel at least two weeks before your wedding and allow your skin to calm.


The side effects of microdermabrasion include blotchiness, increased redness, breakouts and skin sensitivity. Go for this popular pre-wedding treatment 10 – 14 days before your wedding.


Resist cutting or changing your hairstyle, decide on your final wedding hairstyle at least a month before your wedding. Receive your pre-wedding trim two to three weeks before your wedding.

Cosmetic Surgery

No cosmetic surgery the week of your wedding. All surgical procedures require significant amounts of time for healing. Avoid procedures such as liposuction, rhinoplasty, and breast augmentation.

Beauty Treatments to Avoid the Day of Your Wedding

Spray Tans

Glowing on your wedding is wonderful but you do not want to look orange and baked. Spray tans are best applied 7-12 days before your wedding.

Coloring Your Hair

Avoid coloring or highlighting your hair on your wedding day. Color mistakes happen all the time and your hair could end up brassy or burned. Color ten days to two weeks beforehand your ceremony.


As relaxing as a facial is, your wedding day is neither the time nor place to get one. The latest time-frame to get a facial is two weeks before your wedding. This allows time to heal from the peeling, puffiness and redness that often occurs.

New-to-You Makeup

Always go through a trial run of your wedding day makeup routine and resist the temptation to try out new never-before-worn-on-your-face products on your wedding day. The risk of doing this includes unflattering colors that do not look good or worse, an allergic reaction.
