You have plenty of time before your wedding. Tell her honestly that it is not how you imagined it and see if there is somethign else she can try. The whole point of a trial is to find a look you like.

Did you take pictures? The easiest way to bring it up would be that you’ve been looking at the pictures and realize you’d like to make some changes.

Either way, make a list of the things you didn’t like and how you feel they could be improved, and contact her saying, “I’d like to try some different ideas out to see if I like them better, could we do another trial?” Then give her constructive input (i.e. don’t just tell her you hate everything) about what you would prefer.

During the second trial, don’t be shy. Speak up as soon as something isn’t how you’d like it and suggest or ask for an alternative. Unless you say something, she’ll assume you like it, so be vocal!

It think for the sake of her professionalism and the future of her clients, its best just to be honest! She relies on your feedback to obtain further customers and reccomendations. I know you you feel, Im the type to keep quiet, but our money , time and wedding is important to us.

Just say that you felt it was off and would like to see more of ________, could you please in a time that works for you, give me another trial?

I hated my hair trial, and I really wish I had done a second one (I was still a bit underwhelmed with what we ended up with on my wedding day, which was a bit different from the original).  I don’t think they will be hurt–after all, you aren’t saying they did a bad job, just that it isn’t what you wanted.  You can even tell her something like “Oh, I loved this in pictures of other people, but with my skin tone/cheekbones/eyeshape/etc it just didn’t work” (even if that’s not the real problem).  Unfortunately, you will probably have to pay extra to do another trial, but it is completely worth it, in my opinion. I really wish I had!

I didn’t love my first makeup trial, so I decided to go with another artist.  i lost my deposit, but it gave me piece of mind when I found someone who made me look great!
