From the moment you got engaged, people have probably been telling about how you'll want to look your best for the big day, but bridal beauty perfection is easier said than done, and it's not even that easy to say. There are a lot of things to keep track of, a lot of appointments to be made, and probably some things you hadn't even thought to consider that you may want to jump on the bandwagon for in the run up to your wedding. We figured what you needed was an easy checklist to keep an eye on what needs doing and when. Of course, not all of these will apply to you - you may be perfectly happy with your eyebrow routine, have no plans to start becoming a gym bunny, or growing your hair out to Rapunzel-esque lengths - in which case, just skip past those steps. All the more easy for you!
