I checked with local brides and brides-to-be, and did a trial with the vendors who seemed most qualified and had the most reasonable pricing!

I’m struggling with this right now too. I think Miss B is right – the best way to do it is by word of mouth from other brides and ask to see photos of their recent work.  It’s hard to "Interview" … I can see myself on the phone now … "Umm do you use makeup?" "Like mascara?" haha. I’m such an idiot when it comes to make up.   I would say to check out your local board here, and then check out maybe some other local resources. If you are getting married in or near a city – a lot of them have their own wedding magazines that are only printed quarterly.

Word of mouth is always good, but I think I would definitely do ma trial ahead of time, just in case!

I would suggest having a trial to make sure they can work with your unique features.  I had a makeup trial with a very reputable makeup artist and hated the way I looked.  I felt like a drag queen.  I booked a trial with another company and LOVED it.  I feel most confident in my hair & makeup team because I already had my trial.  They took pics and will replicate my style on the wedding day.  No need for another trial closer to the wedding (unless I choose to do so).

I think looking at pictures of other’s hair can only get you so far.  You really need to see it on yourself to be really sure.
