You've booked the venue, secured the caterers, and hopefully even have your dream gown hanging in your closet. Now it's time to divert your attention to the actual most important part of your wedding day: your skin! 

To ensure that you're the most glowing bride (or groom)-to-be, a regulated and well-kept skincare regimen is essential - the sooner you start, the better. And remember folks, you don't want to try experimenting with any new products or treatments the week before, lest you face any unexpected reactions. 

To help get your skin into tip top shape before you walk down the aisle, we consulted Lord Gavin McLeod-Valentine, celebrity facialist, beauty pro, and expert representative of the widely considered holy grail of skincare brands, Augustinus Bader, to create the ultimate skincare timeline leading up to the big day. 

From the daily and nightly routines you should start months in advance, to the facial treatments you should try in the weeks before, click through for Lord Gavin's go-to tips, tricks, and favorite Augustinus Bader products. We mean, if there were ever a time to splurge on your skin... this is it!
