So, you’re planning one of the most important days of your life, it’s SO exciting, isn’t it? But let me guess…your budget has gone out the window and cutbacks are needed as you remember that you’re not playing with Monopoly money…
Unfortunately, it seems the most common cut back is on hair and makeup as that’s something you could potentially do yourself or have Bev, the beautician that lives down the road help you with for a fraction of the price.
YOU’RE MAKING A MISTAKE and here’s why I think you should leave it to the professionals…
I don’t care if you can do your eyeliner in the dark on a normal day because believe me, it doesn’t ever go as simply as you'd expect on the day of your wedding.
Emotions are higher than ever and perfecting that feline flick could be just the thing to tip you over the edge and you’ll end up wishing you paid the extra cash for someone that’s not only a hair and makeup genius but also has experience with wedding days in general.
Believe it or not, your hair and makeup artist isn’t just there to make you all look beautiful, they are there to help you all remain calm, organised and most importantly, keep you all happy.
Still see it as an unnecessary expense?
More often than not, a hair and makeup artists kit and expertise will be reflected in the price. Its a luxury to be pampered and you want to feel safe in knowing that the products being used are the best in keeping everything looking and feeling amazing ALL day.
That’s why it worth doing your RESEARCH before deciding on the person that’s perfect for you and your bridal party.
After all, they are also by your side all morning - a pretty intimate situation that should only require someone that’s truly got their shit together so that you can have a stress free and enjoyable morning.
Its obvious, experience doesn’t always come cheap, but it’s worth just as much as that PERFECT dress you forked out for.
It would be a shame to have your Berta Dress look like something from Boohoo because you lowered the standard for hair and makeup.
Not only that but the entire look will be in your photo album and wedding video for years to come so for goodness sake, GET IT RIGHT!
