Feeling confident in your appearance is another way to make your wedding day as worry-free as possible. Looking for a lush lipstick? How about eyeshadow and nail polish that match the bridesmaid dress? With 200-plus shades in each of those lines, you're bound to find the right makeup at Inglot. And with the "Freedom Guide," you can customize special magnetic palettes to your liking, putting an end to putting up with unflattering shades that come in pre-made packs. The Times Square location was the European cosmetics company's first in the United States, and the Chelsea outpost boasts a photo studio, where pros do your makeup and hair and take photographs, so you know you'll look picture-perfect.
Whether you want to wind down days before your wedding or be beautiful on the big day, the door is always open at Elizabeth Arden Red Door Salon & Spa. Massage therapists will knead your worries away, while facialists help clear your mind (and skin). In addition to standard services and special wedding-focused packages, the spa also has a Countdown to "I Do" program, which features a flexible schedule of recommended treatments and appointments for the six months leading up to the nuptials.
But feeling luxurious isn't just for the ladies. Fellas should stop by the male-only Nickel Spa, where they too can be pampered and prepped. The facility—whose other locations are in London and Paris—features massage and body treatments, facials, waxing and nail services, and even a hair salon and a line of skin-care products.
