I’m not sure what the norm is but I’m also having a Destination Wedding and will not be having a trial run. I have talked to the lady doing my hair though and see some photos of previous work of hers, so I feel pretty confident that she’ll be able to do what I want.

@Coral99:  I’m having my trials done when we travel for our marriage license. florida requires both parties to apply in person so we have to make a special trip.  Does the place you’re getting married require you to be present for the license or are you arriving early to accomplish this?

I will be doing my own make up so this I’m not worried about. I am however going to see 2-3 hairstylists when we are in FL. They wont actually do my hair but I want them to see it to make sure they can handle it. My hair is past my hips its thick. Many stylists cannot handle this much hair, and/or will book an appointment slot that isnt long enough. I anticipate 2 hours in the chair to have my hair done on my wedding. Once I find a stylist who has experience with massive hair I wont be worried. I’ve had a lot of success with having my hair done as long as I make sure prior to the appointment that the person doing it can indeed handle long hair. I’m sorry shoulder length or just bellow the shouldners is not long hair, this is why I will go to show them my hair first so they can feel how thick it is etc and know for sure what they are working with. My mane is a beast!

My trial is 3 days before my weddig. I’d do one if I were you even if its close to the big day. My mua and hair stylist wouldn’t do trials more than 2 weeks out.

PLEASE schedule a trial if you are able.  You want to look your very best on your wedding day, and not all stylists will be able to give your the “hair of your dreams”.
