WHY BRIDAL TRIALS WILL SAVE YOU MONEY AND MORE!
Congratulations, you are getting married! But now you need to ensure you look and feel beautiful on wedding day! In this short guide I will tell you why considering having a trial will save you money and will become an essential part of your wedding planning.
WHY ITS NON-NEGOTIABLE
Trials are non-negotiable. Sometimes quite literally, some Artists/Stylists will not do a wedding without a Trial. There is a reason for this and you will thank them for it.
This is why…
Who has had a special event to attend and decided to go and to try a new hairdresser to get a cut and colour. You come out extremely upset because they have cut the hair too short and the colour was completely off to the point where your hair is ORANGE. You just spent $100+ on your hair and your left feeling more embarrassed than when you walked in! You have no time to fix this and now questioning whether or not to go to the event or face your highly opinionated friends!
We have all been there … so why would you book an artist/stylist for the most important day without testing them out?
WHAT EVERY BRIDE WANTS
As Brides, we all plan for our wedding day will flow exactly as planned:
Your venue is set up just as you envisioned
The flowers were the perfect roses with perfect tones
The wedding dress fits perfectly
Your guests are supportive and joyful for you
Your hair and makeup will be exactly as you expected
BENEFITS OF A BRIDAL TRIAL
A lot of planning and organising is involved to make this your dream wedding.
Wedding Day itinerary is usually on a tight schedule so there is no room for experiment.
Designed as ‘previews’ of what to expect to look like on wedding day
They allow you to test different makeup looks and try different hairstyles to see what will suit your dress, jewellery and accessories, the theme and colours of the wedding.
You will be able to see what will suit your features and what wont.
You will also discover what you like and what you don’t like.
Ensures your artist/stylist understand your vision and can make it happen
Trials are designed so there are no unexpected surprises and you can feel confident that you will look exactly how you imagined and your photos will be beautiful.
WHAT BRIDES ARE UNAWARE OF
As Hair and Makeup artists, we have seen too many brides who forego a Trial.
Implications of not having a trial:
They hated their hair and makeup on wedding day
The makeup didn’t last; the hair didn’t stay.
They spent thousands on a professional photographer/videographer only to have it go to waste as they capture them looking their worst
They were left with memories where they didn’t feel their most beautiful and comfortable
They will never get that day back
WHAT IF I’M HAVING A NO FUSS WEDDING?
If you are this Bride, be clear about this to your artist as artists often feel the risk on both ends is too large to work with brides without a trial.
Be ready to expect the implications of forgoing a trial if you are adamant about not spending extra on a trial.
