Newly engaged? Have you started planning your wedding? Too nervous? You should start planning for the big day soon. Have you started your beauty preparations yet?

There are a number of steps to take. Decide how you want your hair and makeup to look. You may want your bridesmaids' styles all the same. You can hire a beauty consultant or schedule salon appointments for everyone yourself. Make your appointments in advance, especially if you are using a small hair salon, since booking may be limited.

In addition to hair styling, you may want to get your nails manicured and your makeup professionally done. You can have your makeup applied right after your hair is styled. Your manicure can be scheduled the week of the wedding and touch ups can be done on the wedding day as needed.

To make sure everything goes as planned, make some emergency preparations for your wedding day. The unexpected may include a torn dress, a makeup smudge or stain, lots of perspiration, or a hairstyle that goes limp. You should have an emergency beauty bag on hand during your wedding, the maid of honor can come up with such a bag, nonetheless, make sure one is on hand.

Make sure your emergency beauty bag includes makeup, nail color, nail glue, deodorant, hand lotion, hairspray, hairbrush, hair pins, sewing kit, safety pins, crazy glue, stain remover stick, Tums, mints, hair iron, camera, scissors, rubber bands, shoe polish, band aids, tampons/pads, and anything else you can think of. Having an emergency beauty bag will make things run smoother and reduce stress. Hopefully you won't need these things, just be prepared.

There are many plans and arrangements to make. Knowing you're going to be beautiful will make the other arrangements come easier. Don't forget the obvious things such as: making a guest list, finding a place for your reception, hiring a band or disc jockey (DJ) for entertainment, catering or prepping food and drink (will there be an open bar?), photography, and a beautifully over the top magnificently huge cake.

You can hire a wedding planner, or buy a wedding planning guide that will provide a detailed checklist for your wedding plans (this will help in preparing your guest list). The main idea, is to enjoy yourself and try to keep stress levels low. Don't be afraid to ask for help.
