Remember that Your Beauty Plan Encompasses Your Entire Body
You should begin creating a beauty regimen that improves your hair, skin, feet and finger nails at least 6 months prior to your wedding day. This will allow you to subtly transform into a glowing bride who is ready for her close-up.
Coordinate with Your Wedding Party and Make Beauty Appointments in Advance
If you have a small party or a large party it is still quite the task to coordinate everyone and finding our what they want to do for hair and make up. Often times, you don't need to know the nitty gritty. You do however need to know are they in or out!? When booking your hair and make up appointments whether you are going into a salon or having a beauty team travel to, it is like any other appointment. You have to schedule the time in or they may not be able to get done. Saturdays are the busiest days to get your beauty services done. It is important to plan far in advance when it comes to making these appointments so make sure you gather your girls and get them confirmed so you know the details in advance when scheduling. Find out the salons cancellation policy when it comes to a last minute back out so you aren't surprised if it happens and you still have to pay a fee. The more you know in advance the more you can be prepared with no stress! We highly recommend, the sooner you know your details the better when it comes to booking your beauty team or salon services. To ensure availability it is critical. Nothing is worse than researching and finding someone you love but, they book up because it took you months to know your details.
Make Final Selections that Complement Your Personality, Style and Event

Often times photo shoot hair and make up couldn't withstand the wind let alone rain if that happens on the big day (We will cross our fingers that it won't!) . 100 Degree weather or a blizzard, have a plan and know things can change.
