Bridal Timeline – When Should You Book Your Cosmetic Treatments?
More brides are indulging in some pre-wedding beauty boosting to ensure they look their absolute best on the biggest day of their lives. It is a great chance to take some time out of your busy schedule and relax with your nearest and dearest and make sure you look and feel your very best on your special day. Whilst it may feel like a lifetime away, planning a wedding can often leave you strapped for time as the date draws ever closer. To help you get the most of your limited time, we’ve put together a guide to your wedding timeline, complete with treatments we provide here at Light Touch Clinic to give you that gorgeous bridal glow.

It might not seem like there’s any rush, but believe us when we say it will pass in the blink of an eye. With a year to go, you should have, at the very least, agreed on a budget, theme, and guest list with your hubby-to-be. Now would also be a good time to set the date and venue; the earlier you let guests know, the less chance there will be of any clashes. Remember that wedding services book quickly, and start trying to nail down your photographer, florist, cars, cake, décor, and entertainment. The sooner you do this, the less stress you’ll face further down the line.
Hormones can have a massive impact on our wellbeing and quality of life. When they are out of balance, we can experience unwanted side effects such as weight gain, mood swings, irritability, and concentration problems. This is especially the case around peri-menopause. Ensure you feel truly you on your special day with bio-identical hormone therapy at the Light Touch Clinic.
Unlike traditional hormone therapy which is only available in fixed doses, bio-identical hormones are individualised to your body’s unique needs following a hormones test and a thorough consultation with Dr Natalie Blakely. In addition, bio-identical hormones are match your natural hormones on a molecular level making them more compatible than tradition HRT.

The major features of your wedding should be secured, and now it’s time to sort out the finer details. At this stage, you should also have started looking for the most important part of your wedding day: the dress! Don’t that the perfect gown might take a while to find, and you need to give yourself plenty of time for at least three fittings, especially if you decide to opt for couture or designer. When you find the dress of your dreams, everything should start feeling a lot more real!
Whilst pulling the rest of your bridal look together, you may be thinking about how to beautify yourself in time for the day. If you’re thinking about opting for laser hair removal, remember that with Light Touch’s Soprano ICE, six treatments are usually required to get the desired results, so it’s best to start early to ensure smooth, stubble-free skin by the wedding day. You still may have time to fit your Coolsculpting in at this stage, too.
If the mother-of-the-bride, or anyone else in the bridal party is looking to have the perfect treatment for your big day, our ULTRAcel treatment lifts and tightens skin around the face jawline and neck, using a method that combines radiofrequency with ultrasound.
If your skin is looking a little dull or congested, why not consider INTRAcel? This award-winning treatment marries micro needling with radiofrequency heat energy to encourage your skin to make more collagen and elastin for plumper, more youthful skin. This treatment also delivers outstanding results on acne and acne scarring.

The invitations are sent; the bridal shower and hen weekend are within the next few weeks! To ensure you reach your target weight in time, you could also start working towards your dream bridal body now, whilst you still have plenty of time. For those stubborn areas you just can’t shift, why not consider Coolsculpting here at Light Touch Clinic? The non-invasive fat-freezing treatment helps to remove fat that is difficult to burn through diet and exercise alone, and within a few weeks, results will be plain to see. It is worth taking note that you usually need a few treatment sessions for optimum results, so think about booking your appointment now!

Many procedures you are thinking of prior to the wedding, such as subtle facial fillers and Botox for relaxing wrinkles, should really be completed by this point. Every bride wants to look their best for their big day, and 1 month gives plenty of time for any bruising to subside and for you to come in for a top up or tweak if needed.
1 week to go
The stress of wedding planning can have a negative reaction on the body, causing dull skin and breakouts. Not what you need on the biggest day of your life! There is no better remedy for this than taking care of yourself from the inside out, and a relaxation day for the whole of your bridal party is the best way to reward yourself for months of hard work and preparation. Our personalised facials work wonders for brides looking to keep skin looking fresh, youthful, and blemish free, while massage treatments will relax and rejuvenate from the outside in to calm those pre-wedding nerves.
The biggest day of your life!
While it’s easy to get caught up in your wedding day, it’s important to remember that whilst it is the biggest day in many people’s lives, the main thing is that it’s the start of your marriage. Whatever happens and however you look on the day itself, it is ultimately a celebration of love and commitment to another person. Here at Light Touch Clinic, we understand the pressures of the day can often take away from the meaning behind it, but by following our guide, we hope that we can take away some of the stress, helping to make sure you look and feel every inch the blushing bride.
