When it comes to the morning of your wedding, you expect it to be a relaxed, exciting and a pampered day. The ultimate goal is to enjoy yourself to the fullest while looking your best as you walk down the aisle. No matter how much you’ve planned it and how smooth everything seems to be going, there is always a teeny-weeny possibility of some kind of mayhem. However, a little bit of planning and scheduling on your pre-ceremony activities can help you get that stress free wedding.
Your wedding makeup and hair are the most time-consuming tasks on your big day checklist, thus getting your times right with that one can prevent potential chaos. To help you with that we have consulted with some hair and makeup pros asking them on the order they follow while doing makeup on their clients.
International make-up artist and hairstylist Carly Bratherton thinks that the bride should go second to last for her wedding makeup and hair. This gives the bride a fair amount of time to put on her dress and keeps her makeup fresh while walking down the aisle.
For Maranda Gallimore, of Maranda Beauty Bar, having 2-3 makeup and hair experts working as a team helps her carry out the work in an organized way especially when the number of people to be served is high.
On the other hand, Jenny Hartslief of Jenro Beauty prefers keeping the bride as the last one to hop into the make-up and hairstylist’s chair.
Having a stress free wedding day may seem impossible but it is attainable if you get your timings right. From the opinions of the industry experts mentioned above, we can determine that no matter what, the bride should not be the first to sit on the makeup artists’ or hairstylist’s seat. Ideally, the bridesmaids and mother of the bride should be the ones to get ready first, so that they can help out the bride later.
