It's most likely going to start pretty early. Of course this depends on a few factors such as:

-party size

-ceremony time

-will you be taking photos before the ceremony?

-are you doing a first look with your honey?

-travel time (to your ceremony/first look/etc.)

I like to create a schedule so everything has a smooth flow. I do add enough time for each person to have a full makeup experience: including skin preparation, makeup application, lashes, and lipstick. I also allot time for touch-ups at the end of the day while you are getting dressed! It's important to me that you don't have to worry about anything. I want to make sure that you can focus on relaxing and enjoying yourself on such an important day!

You want to make sure you have your food and drink squared away before your wedding day. I recommend adding that for your week-of-wedding to-do list. If you have to pick up these items, arrange for someone to do that during the same week.

Location, location, location! Make sure you already have your designated space for getting ready with the crew! Test out electrical outlets in the space so myself and your hair stylist can plug in our equipment during setup and get started right away!

Don't worry about a thing for makeup setup: I bring everything, so you don't have to lift a finger!

**I just ask that there is a parking space. And please refrain from having pets around during the getting ready process. Pets cannot be around my makeup equipment.**

Then there's your makeup experience! I allow a lovely 1-hour time slot to pamper you and help you relax! Sit in my chair knowing that I will recreate your ideal makeup look from your bridal makeup trial. Of course, if you need to have a bite or sip, feel free to do so. This is your day! And I will make sure you brush your teeth before we apply lipstick!
