I have a hair and makeup trial coming up. I’m not sure I like the idea of my Fiance seeing me with my hair and makeup done the way that it will probably be on the wedding day. I don’t know how I can avoid this since we live together, and I want to leave my hair up and makeup on for most of the day to see how well it lasts. What are your thoughts?

he saw me. we also live together, and i wanted to see how it lasted. i asked him first, and we talked about it, and we both decided that it wouldn’t really be the same since it’s not the full look.

I agree it won’t be the same look.
But maybe you can schedule a girls night instead so you don’t run into him! Then get home late and head to the bathroom before he can see 🙂

We went to a wedding right after my trial, so he definitely saw me. The thing is that based on the trial, we tweaked a few things so for the actual day it didn’t look exactly the same. Besides, you put on that gorgeous dress and everything looks completely different!

Good question. That is one thing that I was concerned about….Fiance seeing me all done up. I don’t want to pay the money and then take it down. Is it ok for him to see it?

Send him on a boy’s day/night with some of his closest buddies (read: Bridesmaid or Best Man, Groomsmen, etc). I’m sure he’d have a jolly good time and his buddies would too!

Yup, he saw me after my hair and makeup trials–they were on separate days so it’s not like he got the whole hair + makeup effect though. But I don’t think it’s a big deal–I liked getting his feedback on it, and on the day of, the hair + makeup +dress + accessories= whole new bridal look that he’s definitely not expecting. So I wouldn’t worry about it 🙂

Yep, he saw me. It didn’t matter because I wasn’t wearing my dress or anything, and THAT’S what makes the first look/aisle walk special, right?
Plus, in the words of my husband after seeing my hair/make-up trial, “I’ll forget this come the wedding day, anyway.” He’s not insensitive, just as an awful memory of this stuff 🙂 Sometimes I’ll wear something I’ve had for years, and he’ll tell me, “Is that new? I like it.” Boys!

He loved my makeup trial. I haven’t had my hair trial yet.

This is what my friend did, and I plan to do… she scheduled her hair and makeup trial for the day of her bachelorette party. By doing so, she avoided seeing her Fiance, was able to see how the look lasted throughout the night (with lots of dancing), and she looked great for her night out!

I figure I’ll see if I can have the bachelorette party on the same day. Or tell FH that he’s going to see the look and might as well take me out on a date since I’ll be looking all hot and sexy!

This won’t be a problem for me, my SO is a firefighter so he works 24hr shifts. In some ways that makes me lucky. I <3 my personal time.
