You were certain you planned for everything -- from the flowers on the tables, to the songs the band would play -- and everything in between.

But experts say if you haven't planned ahead for your bridal beauty and grooming routines you could end up with some wedding-day blues.

"In an effort to look and feel their best I've seen brides try to do too much a day or two before the wedding and not enough in the two to three weeks prior. And the end result can be a litany of problems that really could have been easily avoided," says Liz Seccuro, creative director of Dolce Parties, a wedding and event planning company in Greenwich, Conn., and New York City.

Planning Ahead

Securro says overloading on beauty and grooming routines just days before you say "I do" can not only leave you looking and feeling less than perfect, it can also increase your stress on the very day you want to look poised and serene.

The answer, say experts, is to plan ahead -- setting a schedule that anticipates some of your most important health and beauty needs. While ideally, experts say you should begin three to four months before your wedding, even 30 days is adequate for the most important self-care rituals.

To help you know what to do and when, WebMD asked several experts to help us prepare the following guide.
