Your Wedding Beauty Team Should Not Be the Last Vendor You Book!
Why you want to book your hair and makeup vendor as early as possible:
This is the most important day of your life!
Well, maybe not the most important, but your wedding is definitely up there. You've likely invested a ton of time and money—and if you're shelling out your hard-earned cash for a killer photographer and photo album, you'll probably want to look your best in those pictures as well. So a professional wedding makeup artist and hairstylist is a godsend, since they'll be able to nail a updo or make your skin look flawless.
Find a wedding hair and makeup team early!
Sure, booking your beauty team as soon as you find a wedding venue might seem a little intense, but leaving yourself enough time to have a hair and makeup trial ensures you won’t turn into a beauty bridezilla a few weeks before your wedding. The most in-demand artists can be booked 6-12 months out just like venues can. Most wedding bridal artists will tell you that they're often one of the final vendors their brides book. By the time they choose their beauty artist, they've already locked in their venue, photographer, flowers, wedding dress and favors. At that point, you might be a mere few months out from the big day.
Your beauty plan can help inform other decisions.
Unsure about the neckline of your wedding dress or whether or not you should go with that moody-colored bouquet? Surprisingly, your makeup artist and hairstylist can help, especially if you've already had a trial and know the look you're going for. If you're still deciding on your big-day beauty look, they can help you make those details work—say, by suggesting a berry-hued lip to match your bouquet or subtle makeup that works with a more dramatic dress.
You'll look back on the pictures forever.
When you think back to your wedding, what will flash most in your mind is an image of you and your husband locked in a kiss or celebrating with your family on the dance floor. In all of these pictures, you will be a vision of youth, happiness and love. Your skin will be glowing and your eyes will be sparkling—especially if you've nailed your big-day beauty look. Booking your makeup artist early means you're putting your best face forward for the rest of your life.
All eyes will be on you.
People won't remember your bouquet, or the favor, or the seating chart. Nobody will remember your husband's tux, or the limos, or the cake. The first thing and the last thing that anyone will ever think of when they think back to your wedding day is just how beautiful you looked, which naturally includes your hair and makeup!
Save the extra expense of getting a professional makeup artist and hairstylist for your engagement photos. You need to have a trial done anyway! Do your wedding trial the day of your engagement photos!! This is a great way to see how the makeup photographs as well as great way to wear everything for a few hours to see how things hold up and if any adjustments need to be made for the wedding day!
