As a bridal makeup artist, I understand that weddings can be expensive. Between the venue, the dress, the catering, and all the other details that go into planning your special day, it's easy to overspend. But that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice looking your best on your big day! Here are six ways to save on your wedding hair and makeup:
Book Early: Don't wait until the last minute to book your bridal hair and makeup artist. By booking early, you can often get a better rate and ensure that you're working with a talented professional who will make you look and feel your best.
Choose a Package Deal: Many bridal hair and makeup artists offer package deals that can save you money. These deals often include hair, makeup, and other services like facials or even makeup lessons, so you can confidently apply your makeup flawlessly for your honeymoon and beyond.
Use your Makeup Preview Wisely: Booking a bridal glam preview (or trial) on the day of your engagement shoot, bridal shower, or bachelorette festivities is a great way to get great use out of your glam and an amazing way to save. During your bridal makeup preview, you will be able to share your bridal beauty dreams and get a sneak peek of your wedding hair and makeup.
Consider DIY: If you're confident in your hair skills, you can save money by doing your own hair on the day of the wedding. Just be sure to practice beforehand, and consider hiring a professional for your makeup so that you can be camera-ready all night long.
Choose a Simple Style: When it comes to hair, sometimes less is more. Consider a simple updo or opt for your natural tresses to be styled as opposed to Hollywood Glamour waves. Whatever you decide, stay true to yourself so that you can look and feel absolutely breathtaking in photos without breaking the bank.
Opt for a Smaller Bridal Party: The more bridesmaids you have, the more hair and makeup you'll need to pay for. Consider limiting your bridal party to just a few close friends or family members to save on costs.
