7. 6 Months Away: Schedule your hair and makeup trials
Chances are you secured your hair stylist and makeup artist months ago, and six months before the walk down the aisle is a good time to do a test-run — preferably on the same day so you can see how they look together.

Make sure to bring pictures of your dress, accessories, shoes, favorite Pinterest pictures, etc. so your team can get an exact idea of the look you're going for.
