Your Wedding Beauty Timeline

The 1-year ‘Get Gorgeous Plan’ for the big day.

Congratulations on your engagement! Planning for a wedding can feel overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. We’ve broken down a checklist with a timeline to help you stay on track.

(And remember: Your fiancé already loves you the way you are! Show off your smile with confidence on your big day and soak up every moment of your wedding.)

1 year before your wedding day

  • Get the smile of your dreams in time for your wedding day! One year before you say “I do,” visit your local SmileShop for a 3D image or order an impression kit to start your smile journey. Our average customer sees results in just 6 months.

9 months to go

  • Submit photos through our dashboard for your virtual check-ins with one of our state-licensed dentists or orthodontists. They’ll make sure your smile is moving on track.
  • Make sure you keep wearing your aligners all day and night (or 10 consecutive hours for Nighttime Aligners™), except when eating and drinking.
  • And while you’re at it, now is a great time to visit a dermatologist, get a facial, and amp up your routine for glowing skin.

6 months to go

  • After 6 months, you might complete your smile plan. Maintain that gorgeous grin by ordering your retainers. You’ll want to wear them all day and night for the first 2 weeks, and then every night after that to prevent your new smile from shifting back to where it used to be.
  • Do your first bright on™ premium whitening treatment. Apply the whitening gel pen to your teeth and then use the LED light to intensify the whitening effect. Results last up to 6 months.
  • Now is a good time to book your wedding week beauty appointments, too – hair, makeup, and any manicures or waxing you plan to get.

Your wedding day!
