Nails

Deborah Lippmann The Cure ultra nourishing cuticle repair cream: For picture-perfect ring selfies, use this moisturizing salve leading up to your wedding to avoid a dry cuticle crisis.

Essie Gel Couture in Perfect Posture and Top Coat: Give yourself a gel manicure that lasts from your wedding day through your honeymoon—no UV lamp required.

Face

Laroche-Posay Effaclar Duo Dual Action acne treatment: Never worry about wedding day breakouts with this bacteria-banishing, zit-zapping acne fighter.

Sunday Riley Good Genese All-in-One lactic acid treatment: Rather than manually exfoliating your face with a scrub, this serum contains a high potency of lactic acid that instantly retexturizes dull, dead cells, brightens dark spots and plumps fine lines.

Fragrance

Fresh Honeysuckle fragrance: Perfect for a destination wedding or seaside nuptials, this slightly fruity scent is the ideal balance of lightweight and luscious.
