Happy Thursday everyone!
If you're newly engaged and have already started the process of deciding on what you'd like your hair and makeup to look like on your big day, then you've likely heard about or been asked about booking something called, a 'Bridal Trial'. So, what exactly IS a Bridal Trial and are they worth it?!
Typically, once you've found the team or person you'd like to provide hair and makeup services for you, the stylist/makeup artist (MUA) will suggest that you book a trial with them prior to your wedding date. Bridal Trials are an extremely useful service when it comes to choosing a wedding hairstyle and makeup look, especially if you're feeling unsure!
During a Bridal Trial, your hair and/or makeup artist, (who will likely be the person providing your services day of) will be there to help you brainstorm different ideas for both hair and makeup looks. Finding and bringing in pictures of inspiration for different looks via Instagram, Pinterest, magazines etc. will make your trial go much more smoothly, as well as insure that you and your service provider are on the same page. If you're using Pinterest as a medium for inspirational photos, this is the perfect time to make use of those wedding boards! Creating a separate 'Wedding Hair' board is a great way to keep your ideas organized, and in one place so that they're easy to pull up during your Bridal Trial. Bridal Trials are also great tools because they grant you the opportunity to make any necessary changes if the look that you choose, isn't actually the look that you wanted.
One of the best things that you can do for yourself before your wedding to help ease stress is to be proactive. The last thing that you want to be worried about on your wedding day is the way you look, so why wait until the day of to figure out what does and doesn't work?! Being a bride can be stressful enough, that's why we try to offer services that will only make your life easier!
So, what do you think? Are you convinced that trials are a godsend?! Let us know by leaving a comment and share your new Bridal Trial knowledge with a fellow Bride to Be!
