The Bridal Preview

AS OUR BRIDE, YOU WILL HAVE AN IN-STUDIO PREVIEW! DURING THESE 2-3 HOURS, YOU AND YOUR ARTIST WILL HAVE AN IN-DEPTH CONSULTATION.

It all starts with the dress! We have to see it! We want to get a true feeling for who you are, what your personality is like, and what makes you unique. We don't create the same look for each one of our brides! We understand that every bride has a vision for her wedding and how she wants to look. Don't worry, even if you can't express in words the vision in your mind, it's our job to ask the right questions to make your vision come to life by working together. Let's work together to see what speaks to you. Bridal beauty is a whole new language. Romantic, dramatic, soft, natural, a statement look, glamorous. What will your look be?

Remember that a picture is worth 1,000 words. So Pinterest is your Best Friend! (Connect with us on Pinterest!) That's were you should start. You probably won't find a picture that shows everything you like or want. So pick more than one. Maybe one
that shows the size of the hair, another that shows the placement, etc. Also show us pictures of what you don't like. Another great thing to do is check your camera roll! Show us pictures of yourself when you loved how your makeup turned out. Show us how you wear your makeup everyday and what you do when you're going out. 
Have you had your hair & makeup professionally done before? Show us what you loved! Also tell us what was not so great. Together we will finish your look just like a delicate pearl necklace or fabulous chandelier earrings!

 

Your Timeline

WE PROVIDE ALL OF OUR BRIDES WITH A TIMELINE
TO TAKE THE GUESS WORK OUT OF YOUR BIG DAY.

Based on your timeline, everyone will know their start time, finish time, and be prepared to know what to expect even before we begin. We like to put our brides "in the middle" of the timeline and always schedule extra time with her. You can guarantee the florist will arrive when the bride is getting her makeup done! Anyone that will be helping get the bride dressed will be scheduled to be done first. Your photographer & wedding coordinator will have the exact times they will need and when everyone needs to be ready by. We recommend at least a 2 hour finish time from the ceremony, roughly, without a 1st look with the groom. Here's our formula: 30 minute travel time to ceremony, 30 minutes of getting dressed, and 1 hour for pictures. We always love to add time to that, not take away. You'll agree, every minute counts!

Your Big Day

HERE ARE JUST A FEW THINGS TO REMEMBER ON YOUR SPECIAL DAY...

Everyone always asks us: on the day of the event, will the girls that receive their services first look just as fresh and good as those receiving the last services? The answer is YES! Even better! Here's the thing: as you move around after your services, bobby pins may move as well. We want to see "the worse it can do." Just incase an extra bobby pin is needed. You'll never leave without a FINAL SPRAY. Also for makeup receiving makeup services: that just means you will look fabulous even earlier than everyone else! Will the makeup last? ABSOLUTELY! Literally our brides have reported back telling us their makeup stayed on until the next day! No joke! Our products are designed for bridal makeup! The never look like face paint. Only natural & radiant all day. All you'll need to reapply is your lips and an occasional lite dusting of our blot powder! If you experience any perspiration or shine, no worries, just use a blotting sheet with a lite dusting of powder. You will be amazed as you may dab a tear or dab to remove shine, and nothing else moves!

Remember! Cry Pretty!

This is how you can respect your face and "cry pretty": Accept the emotion (let your tears bubble up), then dab each tear before it leaves your eye. If one gets away, that's ok, just dab don't rub. After all, it is your wedding day. It's ok to cry, just not boohoo. I tell my brides the week of the wedding if something makes you feel emotional, just cry and let it out. Don't try to be "strong." There may be a part of you that's thinking "everyone is getting on my last nerve or I feel so loved," and everything in between! The point is your wedding will bring out emotions you didn't know you had. We promise to our part in to make them the happiest tears.

You Can Trust Us

Our signature look is this: when the bride walks down the aisle, everyone takes in a deep breath- she's breathtaking. When the groom sees her, well, let's just say we make their mouth drop and many boys cry! Not because we changed the way our brides look, but because it's the BEST VERSION of YOU.

Your makeup should never enter a room before you do. Your Hair & Makeup should compliment your dress and finish your look. We have time-proven techniques that will literally bring out your best features. How else have we been able to do as a Bridal Business 1,000's of weddings.

Each of our artists has been trained personally by Antonette. Iron always sharpens iron. We work as a team and learn from each other. We have a 3 year certification program to become a AW ARTISTRY artist. Our lead artists work hand in hand with each new artist. Learn more about our lovely team.
