I have this same question!   The want to do my trial two weeks before the wedding, but what if I hate it and want to change salons?  Won’t everything be booked by then?

I just had mine last week and my wedding isn’t until September.

I mainly did it that way becasue after last week I wasn’t sure when I’d be in Maine again before the wedding and wanted to be comfortable with my hair and makeup choices.

I am glad I did it so early because now as I’m doing my dress fittings I can think about hair pieces as well as feel comfortable knowing I have more than enough hair for the style I want and can cut it if I need to.

I had mine about a month or maybe month and a half before.  I thought I should have done it even farther in advance but in the end it worked out great.  Had I not liked her I would have been rushed to find someone new though – so keep that in mind.

Good question!  I’m definitely feeling like the Sept wedding is creeping up on me.  Haven’t yet persued hair and makeup, but I guess I should do that soon…

@MrsJules10: – I did my hair trial about 2 weeks out, seeing I was 100% confident in my hairstylist (who just so happens to be a good friend of mine). We also went ahead and dyed a few gray hairs that decided to pop out while we were at it LOL. So, 2 weeks is fine if you’re confident in your stylist – if not give yourself a month or so in advance. 

Try not to stress out too much about it, sounds like she knows what she’s doing so let her do her magic!

Good Luck!

I’m doing mine tomorrow but that’s more because I won’t be in NY again until the wedding. I’d probably do about a month before so I’m only a couple weeks early.

I had my trial 5 months before my actual wedding date – mainly due to the holiday season, etc.

My wedding is in August and I will be waiting until July, because there’s a BIG difference in heat/humidity in August than now. If I had a hair trial done now, I’m worried it wouldn’t help me know what to realistically expect my hair to do in August when it’s MUCH hotter and muggier. So I’m waiting until the weather will be close to what it’ll be on my wedding day.

I am going to schedule a trial for May, and my wedding is in September.  I want enough time to go back for a do-over if I change my mind about the style or just am not happy.

my wedding is June 4th and I’m going to do my first hair/makeup trial on this coming Tuesday.  Like others, I want to have time to get as many attempts in as possible to make sure I find something I like.

I might be about to set a record here…I’m going to my first (and only) hair and make up trial two, yes TWO days before my wedding. Why? Because my wedding is in my hometown and I’m not getting there until three days before the big day :p

The good thing is that I know the person who’s doing my hair and make up. She’s done it before for many other events before 🙂 Hopefully she’ll do an excellent job 🙂

I’m going to do mine May ’12 for my June ’12 wedding. I have to wait for my hair to grow another 6 inches or so 🙁
