If you are having trouble narrowing down which artist to book for your special event, schedule a trial to determine if the artist can create the look you are trying to achieve. Bring pictures of your dress for inspiration, jewelry, headpiece or anything else that may help the artist get a better feel for your personality and desired finished product(you may not have any or all of these items yet) After your trial, have a picture taken of yourself. Make sure you love your hair & make-up in person as well as in the photo. Keep in mind, during busy months, most artists book on a first come first served basis so doing a trial before booking may not be an option. At the very least see if you can meet them briefly so you can get a feel for who they are face to face before putting down your deposit. I only recommend doing a trial that early if you are really in doubt and need to be sure as, in my experience, brides often end up doing another one closer to the wedding, which is an added expense.
Stay warm everyone!
