As a wedding professional do you often get asked by your brides what should I do for my make up and my hair on the wedding day? Or do you think my make up looks good now so that I can do it myself on the wedding day? My friend does hair and make up and we are going to save a ton of money because she is doing it for free, as you glance over at her friend’s make up that she is referring to in sky blue eye shadow with red lipstick and hair matted with hair spray (all you can think about is, we are stuck in an 80’s nightmare!) Those are the questions that can make any wedding professional look like a deer caught in headlights. But it does not have to be that way. Once you sign your bride up to work with you as your client, have a checklist of the things that you will go over with the bride for instance selection of photographer, videographer, dress shopping and all the other needed services, but most important have a category on your planning forms called health and beauty. This is where you can discuss with your bride about proper nutrition so that she has the energy that is needed on the day of, exercise to help her look the best that she can, skin care with a professional esthetician and lastly professional hair and make up that will make her look natural but beautiful on the day of the wedding.
The Association of Bridal Consultants had the pleasure of hosting their meeting at Marilyn Monroe Spa. At this meeting we had an opportunity to hear from each person that works at the salon to explain the process of taking care of the bride’s skin, hair, and nails in order to prepare for the wedding day. One of the take aways that stood out was to not wait for the week before to start planning the regime of hair, make up and skin. The bride’s skin should start preparation almost simultaneous to the day after engagement so that it does not become an expensive last minute process. As a wedding professional, feel comfortable talking about these beauty tips. Don’t forget to discuss teeth whitening and tips to maintain those pearly whites. One of my personal favorites, if you have to have that cola or tea, use a straw and do not swish your drink in your mouth, use whitening toothpaste and whitening mouthwash. Lastly if you are going to preach beauty, as a wedding professional don’t forget to check your own after all, our clients look up to us to be the best that we can be.
Thank you to our sponsors that made our meeting a success at Marilyn Monroe Spa.
