When you have a wedding looming on the horizon, you’ll take any excuse to go all out (really, all out) with your beauty routine. We’ll also take that as an excuse to do some serious shopping. It’s all very serious when it’s time to get married.

Except that the serious business in question is doing ten thousand face masks, getting waxed, painting your nails, and feeling like your most beautiful self—it’s more fun and games than intensive labor. In case you haven’t noticed, it’s wedding week (!) so in the spirit of all things bridal, we called in a few of our tried-and-true, no-joke beauty products, and paired them with a handful of accessories that would make any bride proud.


If you’re concerned with spots, rely on gentle acne fighters with clarifying natural ingredients—they won’t dry you out, but will help keep clog-prone skin under control. In a pinch, Renee Rouleau’s Night Time Spot Lotion should heal any last-minute zits overnight.

For skin glowier than, well...a gold leaf bag, or embellished Monique Lhuillier shoes...choose a nighttime routine that’s full of exfoliating acids like Sunday Riley’s Good Genes or an O.G. favorite, Drunk Elephant’s TLC Serum.

These will keep keep everything looking youthful and glowy—just don’t forget to apply any cream masks to your neck and chest as well. And about that slipper thing, these would be an insanely chic (and comfortable) choice to make a trip down the aisle in.
