How a girl looks on her wedding day is easily as important to any bride as the food or even the groom! For me, looking my best was about hiring a team of professionals. There was no other choice in my mind than to hire LeJeune Artistry. In fact, they were the first vendor I booked for my wedding. I contact her about eight months out. Her husband, Randy got back to me within 24 hours with my contract, I sent in my 100.00 deposit and I was thrilled. But honestly, this was the last time I gave any thought to my hair or make up until it came time for my trial. If you are able to, I encourage every bride to do a hair and make-up trial. It was so helpful in getting Patricia and I on the same page for my vision.
Speaking of that vision, brides today have the greatest tool ever for finding hair and make-up inspiration. Pinterest!! I could not believe how easy it was to find the exact look. I created a style board of hair styles I liked, the make-up looks I liked and it was so helpful. I did not find a photo of exactly what I wanted. But I found a front hairstyle I liked and a back that I liked.
Armed with my style board, I went to my trial. Patricia commended me for selecting styles that would work with my hair type. Ladies-this is key, be realistic in your vision of your wedding and play to your natural features. If you have fine pin straight hair, know that no amount of hairspray or styling is going to give you a headful of romantic ringlets. Same goes for make-up, you may love a smoky charcoal eye. But for some girls, you may have to look to other colors to achieve a look that is flattering to your coloring. Understand that your vision is a “rough draft”.
Patricia set my hair, then went to work on my make up. She did a dramatic side and a soft side. For my 7:00pm wedding, I was all about the drama. It was great to see both and know which look fit best. Another reason I was glad I did the trial. I wanted a “high” front, just like the picture. Patricia did exactly like the picture and I looked like I was ready to walk on to the set of Jersey Shore. NOT the look I was going for. So Patricia tweaked my look, took her own photos of me, and within 90 minutes. I knew my wedding look. This trial made for a seamless wedding day. We both knew exactly how I wanted to look.
I hope all brides will have the chance to work with Patricia and her team at LeJeune Artistry. But if not, follow my tips and you too will be the bride you dreamed you’d be on your wedding day.
