Visuals and Inspiration
If you have a specific look or feel in mind for your hair and makeup, bring along some photographs or other inspiration you’ve gathered. This will ensure you and your stylist are on the same page and that your hair and makeup will be tailored to fit you, and your dress, perfectly. Pinterest is also a great tool to utilize, especially when gathering inspiration for your wedding! Check out ours for tons of bridal hair and makeup inspiration! Start pinning away and make individual boards to stay organized.
Test, Test, Test!
Along with the obvious hair and makeup trails to get your look perfect, don’t forget to test out anything new you may be wearing or using on your big day. Shoes, makeup, a spray tan, lotion…everything!
Stay True To You
Of course you want to look drop-dead-insanely-gorgeous on your wedding day, but don’t try to look like someone you’re not. Your groom fell in love with YOU. What you, and we at AK Studio, want to do is enhance your natural beauty.
Build an Emergency Kit
Band-aids, needle and thread, baby wipes, q-tips, eye-drops (extra contact for those vision-challenged!). Pack a kit of anything and everything you might need if you run into any hiccups on your big day.
Relax and Enjoy!
Don’t forget to pamper yourself and get some extra R&R. Small, non-invasive things like a massage and manicure/pedicure in the weeks or days leading up to your wedding will feel great! And don’t forget to spend time with your friends and family. You’ve probably been more than little preoccupied with planning so now is the time to relax, laugh and mingle!
