What to Expect
Hey there! We're so excited to work with you on your once in a lifetime event! It's an honor to be considered for your big day.
The experience starts right now! Take a look around our website, read our reviews, download our Rates & FAQ guide, check availability for your date, and follow us on our social media pages to get some hair and makeup inspiration. The next step is optional, but highly recommended. Schedule a complimentary consultation call with us to chat about your day and get any lingering questions answered.
The booking process is pretty straightforward. We'll email over a contract that can be filled out electronically, and request a retainer payment to hold the date. From there, you are all set!
The Planning Stage
We'll guide you through the planning stage with email updates along the way and lots of bridal tips and tricks on social media. We'll also help you with beauty prep at our studio leading up to the big day. We'll create a plan to ensure all your wedding beauty goals are met. We offer a full range of beauty services for you and your bridal party in our studio in Paoli, PA.
We also offer personal beauty shopping and bridal beauty consultations to help you learn about products and techniques that are ideal for you. We've even done a few classes for bachelorette parties! These classes are fully customized to you and your lifestyle, and can be done in person or virtually!
90 Days Out
We'll reach out to schedule your preview session with your artist. While these appointments are not required, they are recommended so you can consult with your artist and customize your wedding beauty look.

60 Days Out
At the 60 day mark, the headcount in your contract is locked in. If you need to make any changes, please email us before this date for any necessary updates! After the 60 day mark, we cannot remove services from your contract but we can always transfer the service to another person in your party if need be. Sometimes we're able to add services if your schedule allows.
30 Days Out
This is when our Signature Timeline Coordination begins. At this stage, we contact your other vendors to get a sense of their timeline for the day. Then we build an in depth schedule, listing appointment times for every service in the contract.
If you have any scheduling requests (i.e. My Mom wants go first etc.) we'll do our best to accommodate them. We use our "magic formula" when making the schedule to allow everyone to be relaxed and ready with time to spare. As soon as this is complete, it'll be emailed over to you for final approval.
14 Days Out
We'll send over your final schedule and invoice (sooner if we get your timeline information ahead of time). Your final payment is due and can be paid online for your convenience.
3 Days Out
We'll reach out to confirm your location, start, & finish times and make sure you are all set!
This is the day we've all been waiting for!! Our team will arrive at their scheduled time and get set up and ready to go. They'll bring everything including brushes, tools, products, and power strips. We ask that you provide a chair and some table space for each artist. Natural light is the best light for makeup so if you have windows available, this is preferred - however, our artists do bring their own professional lighting as well.
The artists will work through their appointments as scheduled and consult with each attendant at the start of their service. They'll discuss photos of hair and makeup they love (and even ones they don't like) to customize to perfect looks for their clients. We tend to run right on time or ahead of schedule, so we ask for everyone to be ready at least 15 minutes before their scheduled appointment.
When all services are completed, the artists will provide last minute touchups or changes and take care of everyone's final needs. Then they'll clean up and put everything back just as it was when they arrived. They'll be your best friends by the time they leave and they'll be counting down to when they get to see some photos of the finished look!
We try to wait until a month after the wedding to contact you so you have time to enjoy your first weeks of married life together, but we'll be secretly dying the whole time to see some photos of your big day!
Once we've worked with you, you're in the family! We LOVE staying in touch with our brides once the wedding is over and keep many of them as clients in our studio. Sometimes we get to work with our brides again as bridesmaids in their friend or family member's wedding, or for maternity shoots and family photos. We have an excellent referral program in place and we're so grateful when our clients pass our information along.
