In preparation for one of the most important days of your life, it is wise to research the best wedding tips for your big day. Although this changes from bride to bride, most women are especially concerned about not only their look, but their bridal parties’ as well. Unless you’ve had a wedding or planned one, many single women are pretty inexperienced with the daunting task of planning a wedding. So here are some tips to guide you through scheduling hair styling services for you and your bridal party.
Know what you want
All hail the Yoda of weddings: Queen Pinterest! Now is your chance to have a guilt-free Pinterest fiasco. Spend a healthy measure of your creative energy on building a wedding board. Include photos of hairstyles that you love, bridesmaid gowns you adore, makeup, and venues that speak to you. The big day rests on your vision, so be thorough in your self-exploration and prepared to pitch your vision to your support team; this is the toughest most critical part of your process. Your vision is the launch pad for creating the wedding of your dreams.
Research your hairdresser
If you have a hairdresser that has been doing your hair since you were three years old and you know she can create the images you seek, book her! However, each stylist has his or her own unique niche and some specialize in wedding styles and others do not. Consider at least three stylists with great wedding reviews from your peers, or online sites like WeddingWire. When considering your wedding stylist, ask the following questions:
- Is there a portfolio of wedding photos I can review?
- Are there wedding packages or bridal specials?
- How often have you styled my hair texture?
When you begin to hear the answers that fit your vision and budget, book a consultation with your chosen stylist. Do not be fooled, the sooner you book, the better. According to Statistic Brain, there are over 2 million weddings per year, most of which are typically held on a weekend, which leaves little time to dilly-dally around with dates and times. Small towns could possibly get by with 3-6 months advanced booking, but larger cities tend to require more time for sought out hairdressers.
