Hair - Colour, Cut and Condition

6 Weeks

'If you have highlights or tints, get them seen to six weeks before your big day. This will give hair time to settle and is long enough for you to be able to make any corrections should anything go wrong' says hair stylist Errol Douglas.

4 Weeks

'Have a trim to neaten the ends and use some intensive treatments - Space NK has a great range. Use them in the steam room at the gym because the heat will intensify the active properties and enable them to penetrate your hair for better effect,' says hair stylist Lisa Eastwood.

2 Weeks

'If you're having fresh flowers in your hair, order them now. Keep the arrangement simple to avoid over-handling of the flowers. Blooms that are wired on to a comb or a halo-type wreath work best,' says Lisa.

1 Week

'If you colour your hair, get the roots done or the highlights refreshed. If you don't colour it, have a vegetable dye washed through - this makes hair shiny and healthy looking, as well as giving it depth of colour,' says Lisa.

1 Day

'Wash and condition your hair today. If you're having your hair styled, it will hold better with a day's dirt rather than when it's feshly washed,' says Errol.

The Big Day

'Don't panic! There's not a lot you can do at this stage, so chill out, open a bottle of Champagne and leave it to the pros. All will be fine,' says hair stylist Sam McKnight.

Body - Tan, Tone and Calm

6 Weeks

'Start body-brushing. It's a fantastic way to revive your skin from shoulders to toes and it helps to stimulate the lymphatic circulation. Skin is left looking instantly more radiant and healthy,' say beauty guru Liz Earle.

4 Weeks

If you're worried about cellulite (think honeymoon), apply Shiseido's Body Creator, £28. This ingenious gel works using the power of scent - grapefruit, fennel, tarragon and pepper - which, when combined with the caffeine in the product, works to break down and burn off fat. Used twice daily, it promises to slim your silhouette in just four weeks!

2 weeks

'Have a trial run of the St Tropez Tan 10 - 14 days before the wedding. Book your next treatment for two days before the wedding. Make the appointment late in the afternoon, leaving all evening for the tan to develop, then either wash the 'guide colour' off that night or, better still, leave it until you shower in the morning and you will have a wonderful, natural looking tan,' says Judy Naake of St Tropez. Call 01159 221462.

1 Week

Indulge in a couple of relaxing, aromatherapy massages this week. Clarins has a range of luxurious new treatments guaranteed to calm your nerves and eliminate stress. For more information, call 0800 036 3558.

1 Day

'Have a manicure and pedicure the day before rather than on the day itself so you don't smudge or knock nails in a panic,' says Thea Callan of Nails Inc.

The Big Day

Layer your wedding fragrance with the accompanying bath and body products in the range so your scent has maximum impact and staying power.

Face - Brighten, Glow and Smile!

6 Weeks

Nothing is more attractive than a healthy smile so make sure you take care of all dental-related issues well in advance and leave extra time if need be.

4 Weeks

Be sure to exfoliate at least once a week to reveal glowing, luminous skin. Use a gentle product with very fine grains though. Try Lancome Exfoliance Clarte, £22.

2 Weeks

If you think you'd benefit from a facial, make sure you have it at least ten days before your wedding to allow time for your skin to calm down and really look its best.

1 Week

Don't use any new skincare products this close to your wedding. The last thing you'll want is to wake up on your big day with any kind of allergic reaction.

1 Day

Apply a moisturising mask, then moisturise again for super-hydrated, glowing skin. Make sure you've previously used the products and that they agree with you.

The Big Day

'Think about ways to make your make-up last throughout the wedding,' says make-up maestro Bobbi Brown. 'Set foundation with loose powder, wear waterproof mascara and line and colour lips with lip pencil,' she says.

5 Tips for Wedding Morning Calm

· Retain some perspective! You'll still have the day of your dreams despite any last-minute hitches.

· Make sure you eat breakfast that morning - you'll be glad you did later in the day.

· Surround yourself with friends and family who are relaxed and easy-going and won't stress you out.

· Lock yourself in the bathroom and treat yourself to some pampering away from it all.

· Not an easy task, bit a decent night's sleep will stand you in good stead!
