Congratulations Bride-to-Be! You're almost finished planning your wedding and the time has come to finalize your look with your bridal glam team. One of the questions we get asked the most is when to book your wedding hair and makeup trials (or previews). And if you're not sure if you should have a trial, here is your sign to get one.
Your trial is an opportunity to meet your hair stylist and makeup artist and dive deep into the details of how you want to look so they can execute your vision seamlessly on your wedding day (and most importantly so there are no surprises). There's also a huge benefit in it for your glam team. They're able to work with your skin tone and hair texture so they're most prepared on your wedding day.
So, let's get into it! When should you ACTUALLY book your wedding hair and makeup trials. Our recommendation is about 3 months before your wedding day. This timeframe is perfect for you to communicate any adjustments you'd like to make so your bridal glam team can go shopping, create their face charts, and be prepared to serve you with excellence. Not to mention, you're going to have most of your other wedding festivities around this time. Here are a few pro tips on getting the most out of your bridal trials:
Book the trials the day of your bachelorette or bridal shower. Get the most out of your investment and put your glam to the test. You'll be able to see how long-wearing your glam is and how it photographs.
Book on the day of your dress fitting. A lot of brides have trouble envisioning how everything is going to look together. Maybe after getting your hair styled in long Hollywood glamour waves, you determined that a chic up-do would be more fitting for your timeless, backless gown. Seeing everything from your hair, makeup, gown, and veil is a great way to put your mind at ease so you're even more ready to walk down the aisle.
Book your trials in the morning. Scheduling your trials in the morning allows you to see how the makeup interacts with your skin. If you have oily skin, maybe a different combination of primers and setting sprays are needed. Or maybe you need a bit of attention to your smile lines. By taking note of how your glam wears throughout the day and sharing this information with your glam team, you'll be more prepared for stunning, camera-ready glam on your big day.
