    Bridal Beauty by Ami Christianson

    First comes love, then comes the engagement, then comes hair, makeup, waxing, spray tanning, manicures, pedicures…

    Over the past several years One Bridal Co. has worked in creating hundreds of beautiful brides and bridal parties. Traveling hundreds of miles throughout the Chicagoland, and occasionally traveling to other parts of the country.

    So, I thought today I would share some thoughts with all you “brides to be” on how to get the your dream bridal beauty vision translated into your wedding day reality.

    #1 Communication is key. I always love to see your entire wedding look. Sharing your Pinterest boards with your stylist, along with photos of your wedding dress is a great way to communicate your wedding stlye. After all stylist and makeup artists are “artist”, we communicate visually.

    #2 When it comes to Hair and Makeup. Always look for inspiration photos for your stylist that are as close to possible to your hair color, skin tone, and eye color. It is so very important that your are realistic about what style will look best on you. After all, you want to look like your best, self on your wedding day, not someone else. Right?

    #3 Be honest with your stylist. I tell every bride, and client this…”If you are not happy with how something looks, or feels, just tell me. I can tell by your body language anyway…so it will be a lot more fun working together if you know you can be yourself by being completely comfortable in your communication with me”.

    #4. Timing is everything. Make sure to schedule your bridal trail at least 2 months prior to your wedding. Keeping in mind as busy bridal stylist we are usually out working with other bridal parties on weekends. I always recommend scheduling your trial the day of a special event, such as your bridal shower, or final dress fitting. Give yourself time to enjoy your bridal “look”.

    Lastly take time to enjoy this process. Planning a wedding can be stressful. Your Bridal Beauty should be, fun, a time for you to relax and feel beautiful.
