Secure your date and venue
Knowing where you’ll be getting married will also have a huge impact on your style. You’ll be able to share details with your beauty team that will help them help you determine your beauty timeline for the day.
Is it a formal occasion or is it an outdoor beachy wedding? Are there seasonal elements to consider? Are you traveling to/from a very different climate that will affect the way your hair typically behaves.
These are all things that you will want to discuss during your booking. In the destination wedding capital of the world we highly recommend booking your hair and makeup a minimum of six to nine month’s in advance.
