As the big day approaches, there is so much to think about. From finding the perfect dress, planning decor for your stunning venue and ensuring your bridal party looks gorgeous, it can be hard to remember one of the most important details: your wedding beauty plans (ie when to book beauty appointments for you and your wedding squad). Since this is an essential part of wedding preparation, here are some tips on when to book beauty appointments in preparation for your special day!
Consider Your Timeline
First and foremost, it’s important to consider how much time you have before the wedding day. If you’re getting married in six months or more, then you want to start reaching out to potential hair and makeup artists right away to see if they have your date available. This will give you plenty of time to try out different looks and make any necessary adjustments leading up to your wedding date. On the other hand, if you’re getting married in less than six months, then you will want to book trials as soon as possible so that there is enough time for everything to be perfect.
Pick Your Styles
Once you’ve decided who will be doing your hair and makeup along with any other beauty appointments, it’s important to consider what type of wedding beauty plans and treatments you and your squad will need. This may include hair styling, makeup applications, tanning, beard trims, facials, manicures/pedicures and more. While you may feel comfortable doing these yourself, a professional stylist can help create the perfect look for each member of your wedding party, ensuring everyone looks their best for photos. Additionally, if members of your wedding party have specific needs or allergies, then make sure to mention them to the hair or makeup artists when booking appointments so that they can be accommodated.
Understand Your Budget
It’s also important to consider your budget when booking various beauty appointments. Since many hair and makeup boutiques or stylist’s offer packages, it’s a good idea to check in advance for any discounts that may be available. Additionally, some offer group discounts which can help keep costs down while still ensuring everyone looks their best on the big day!
Book Your Appointments
Of course, the final step is to book your own beauty treatments! If you are doing engagement photos, this is a great time to book your trail! Plus, you will have plenty of time to make edits or changes after the trail to get the perfect look for your wedding day 😉 Additionally, if you have any pre-wedding events like a bridal shower or bachelorette party, then it may be worth getting your makeup done for those too so that you can practice the look before the wedding day.
So if you’re feeling overwhelmed by the amount of preparation needed for your big day, remember these tips on when to book beauty appointments in preparation for your special day! By doing so, you can make sure that wedding beauty plans are locked down and you and your bridesmaids look gorgeous on the big day.
