The first step in our process is gathering all the information we need to build your bridal folder and getting your date booked! First we will discuss how many people are in your party and what services everyone will need. From there we will create a customized bridal package. The bridal contract will then be sent via email and the deposit will be paid to reserve your date.
From there we start building your Bridal Folder! YAY!! The Bridal Folder contains your contract, schedule for the whole wedding day as well as your hair and makeup schedule, style profiles for each member of your party, and any other documents we may need to bring with us! Please let us know during this time if anyone has allergies that we should be aware of or if your venue requires proof of insurance!
During this process we will get names and pictures of everyone in the bridal party receiving services and what they want done for hair and makeup including wether they will be adding extensions. We create a mini style board for each person. Each person will be assigned to a specific stylist and time in our schedule based on what they want for their look. This helps ensure my team runs like a well oiled machine on the big day!
A trial run for your hair and makeup is always suggested, but not required. During your trial we will do the whole shebang! Here we will decide on lip color, lashes, specific hair styles, whether we need extensions, pre-wedding coloring or smoothing treatments, ect. Everything we discuss will be documented in your Bridal Folder so we can 100% replicate the trial look on the big day! Of course we always expect tweaks to be made between the trial and wedding day. This is where our unprecedented line of communication comes in! After your trial we want you to let us know how everything held up through the day so we can make changes as needed for the real deal.
We recommend doing your trial 1-2 months before the wedding. By this time you will have your dress and other details in place (like your final hair color, accessories and possibly a light spray tan).
Month of the Wedding
Two weeks before your wedding day, we will confirm all the services being done and make adjustments to the schedule if there are any.
One week before your wedding the remainder of the wedding day total will be due.
The Big Day
On the day of your wedding our team will bring everything we need on location (tables, chairs, makeup & hair kits, and any other necessary items). We highly suggest having a place to get ready with good natural light, but no worries if that is not an option! We have big lights we will bring with us! These are also awesome selfie lights! We always provide touch ups at the end of all hair and makeup services and a touch up kit for the bride. Bridal party members are encouraged to bring along a lip color of their choice or a lipgloss for touch ups throughout the evening.
