These days, planning a wedding can be done with a few (okay, perhaps more than a few) clicks of the mouse. But with such a vast amount of information at your fingertips, it can be overwhelming to sort through all of the latest trends, tips, and tricks that are “in”. Amidst the pressure of following the endless guidelines and rules for the perfect wedding, it’s easy for brides to overlook the most important aspect—themselves! Often times, brides wait until the eleventh hour to focus on their beauty regimen for their wedding. There are many things you can do ahead of time to help reduce stress and make yourself feel as beautiful as possible, inside and out! Joya Spa at Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia has put together a simple timeline to ensure you’re in mint condition for your big day.
