June is the month for summer weddings. What can be prettier than a June bride? A December bride, an April Bride, a November Bride… OK. They are all beautiful, of course. But there is something extra special about a June Bride. Many June brides got engaged at Christmas and the 6 months leading up to the summer wedding is a flurry of planning, showers, events, shopping: the dress, the shoes, the accessories, choosing patterns, picking colors, choosing music, a photographer, a videographer and paying attention to every last detail possible that will make the day a day for everyone to remember.
The day of the wedding leading up to the nuptials is also carefully planned. The bridal party will get their hair and makeup done, they get dressed together and they ride to the venue where the wedding will take place together. Choosing a salon to help coif the bridal look is something that is done at least a month is advance of the wedding date. Many brides will do a ‘trial run’ when the bride brings her veil, headpiece or hair accessory to the salon and a trusted stylist to plan the perfect hair style that compliments not only the brides face, but her dress as well. Loose waves, a slicked back bun, fishtail or waterfall braid or updo may be one of several choices a bride will make for herself with the help of her trusted stylist.
Let’s not forget the bridesmaids. A day at the salon with all the bridesmaids getting hair and airbrush makeup is a great way to relax let the excitement build and take advantage of the last few hours before the celebration of the wedding begins. In many ways, this is the beginning of a new kind of friendship. Make the day an event by bringing in champagne and breakfast or lunch items. You should try and eat something. You will still fit into your dress ladies! Paying for the bridal party’s hair and makeup can be a wonderful gift you give to them.
Choosing the right salon to trust your bridal party hair and makeup to is as important as the dress itself. It should be a salon and a stylist that you are comfortable with, a salon and a stylist who knows your temperament. Choose a stylist who will make you feel like the princess you are that day. Choose a salon that can make sure each and every one of your bridesmaids feel special. You may choose to have the stylists come to you; to your hotel or your home, or you may choose to go to the salon. Talk the advantages of both over with your chosen stylist. What kind of a day are you planning? When are photos? Where will they be? How many bridesmaids will need hair and makeup? How many mothers, grandmothers and aunts? These are details that need to be discussed and the timing realistically planned.
Your wedding day will be the highlight of your life up. Make sure you make the best decision for yourself and your wedding party and choose the hair and makeup salon that will ensure your day runs smoothly and will make you feel like a princess!
