What needs to be prepared for my wedding day?
To look your absolute best on your day of it is always best to start your pampering months in advance. The best foundation for any flawless makeup application is good skin. Plan with your skincare specialist a good regimen to get your skin looking its best for the day of. We also recommend having your eyebrows groomed the week of. If you get your hair colored, this should also be done within a 1 to 2 week window to ensure your up style looks polished. Trimming your ends is also very important. Having dead ends that are thin and unruly can make a big difference in any hairstyle.
What start time is needed for my wedding day?
Depending on all your pre-ceremony photo sessions or first looks will determine this start time. Typically we look to be done glamming everyone 2 hours prior to the ceremony time to allow the photographer time to do the shots they need. Depending on the size of your bridal party as well, will determine how much time is needed from start to finish. Multiple stylists are available, this does cut back on time needed but does come with an additional charge. We can start as early as 9 am, any start time prior to 9 am does have a small additional charge. We will create a timeline for your special day to ensure everyone's scheduled time keeps everything running smoothly. We ask that the entire bridal party be together, enjoying each others company, the entire session or at least in the room 30 minutes prior to their start time.

Not everyone is required to receive a service, but it is always highly recommended. Having everyone glammed professionally looks more polished and great for your photos.
