- Wedding: May 2014
Hello! I need some help deciding what would be best for the day of the wedding, and still keep costs as low as possible. I definitely want professional hair and makeup done for myself, and I told my bridesmaids that they have the option of getting themselves done professionally or DIYing hair and makeup. I found a hair salon and a makeup salon within walking distance of each other, about 15-20 minutes away from the venue. I’m trying to decide if I should travel there, or pay the extra fee for them to come to the venue. ($35 for makeup, not sure what it would be for hair). My hangups:
Would I take all my bridesmaids with me to hair and makeup, including those that don’t want to get it done? I don’t want to exclude anyone, but if they’re with us while we’re getting hair and makeup, when will they have a chance to do their own hair and makeup?
Is there any disadvantage to not having hair and makeup at the venue? Obviously it would be most convenient to have them come to me, but I would rather save money.
Any other issues I haven’t thought of? Which way did you go for hair and makeup, and what experiences can you share? Thank you!
