1. How flexible are you in regards to time?
Wedding days rarely run perfectly smooth. No matter how hard you plan, sometimes, things happen. That is why it is important to get a hair and makeup team that can adapt to bridesmaids running late. Sometimes your hair or makeup team may do 2 or even 3 different events a day, and if they are scheduled to leave at a specific time, they may feel like they have to rush through your bridesmaid's makeup so they can go and get to the next wedding. That is why, in our opinion, you should try to get a team that is dedicated to you and only you the day of the wedding. This way, they can take their time and do the job right.
2. How early can you start?
This is super important because depending on your bridal party's size and when your photographer has to start taking pictures, your hair and makeup team may have to start very early in the morning. We have had to start taking photos as early as 6 am. Meaning when we arrive, your hair and makeup are done. For this to happen, you need to start hair and makeup before 6 am!
Before you hire your hair and makeup team, make sure they are up to the task. If your hair and makeup team cannot start when you need them, your entire day will be behind schedule. You would not want to plan your entire wedding, and then a few weeks before your wedding, have it ruined because your hair and makeup person could not start earlier.
3. What packages can we work out before the wedding day?
Each person is going to have their own set of pricing and packages for hair and makeup. I would speak to your bridal party and find out exactly what services they want from the hair and makeup company. One of the most stressful times in the day is the start of it. When everyone is finishing up their hair and makeup, and it is time to pay, girls are running around looking for change. If your entire bridal party knows what services they will get before your wedding day and you have discussed this with the hair and makeup company, there will be no surprises. You will know how much it costs, and you will be able to have that exact amount ready when your hair and makeup is complete. This saves precious time and eases the stress of the wedding day.
