BEEEEEESSSS, I need help!!!
I’m getting married at sunrise (approx 7am) and at a destination location, and unfortunately I’ve had zero luck finding a MUA and Hair Stylist for the wedding. I don’t want to ask any of my guests to help out, because I really want them to just enjoy the morning and not have to be slaving over my look that morning. All the mobile vendors are book since it’s wedding season and all the salons won’t open that early, especially since I don’t have a wedding party, it’s a really small wedding, so it’d really just be me. I understand that these vendors wouldn’t make as much $ off of just doing a bride over a full party, so I’m not really pushing it. Business is business, plus some vendors in the area have been really rude and unhelpful at me simply ASKING if they’re available. WHATEVS. My issue is, I can do my daily make up, and I’m happy with it, but I need help finding products or suggestions of looks that will photograph well, not melt away quickly on the beach, and are easily done. I want to look soft, but well put together, and romantic. I ended up with a really simple dress, that I’m going to add bling accessories to to dress it up a bit, but I need help putting together a look. Any suggestions? Pic of my dress below for reference.
I’m having such an issue, I’ve tried youtube looks but all of it seems like it’d just melt away so quick, my skin is already so oily right now, and I know when I’m nervous I’ll just produce more and more, plus I don’t want to look like an oil slick in photos or have those weird melted make up spots all over. Our photography package isn’t super long, we’re doing addt’l wedding photos back in our home state after the wedding where I’ll have it all done professionally so the pics will look amazing, but a girl still wants to look gorg on her wedding day. I’d also really like to wear my hair somewhat up, because it gets SO frizzy in humidity, and I don’t want curls to fall out and look half done and gross. I need a look that’s going to withstand the beach. I want to just look pretty that day, and not have to sacrifice feeling that way because of timing.
I’d also be open to any other suggestions. I just need help. I didn’t want to DIY my look, because I really wanted to have a relaxing early morning and feel pampered, and if my wedding were later, it’d be so much easier, but this is my situation, so I need to make the best of it.
