When I got married, Pinterest was not even a thought. I did not have all the inspiration that brides have now. But, we put together a gorgeous wedding and it was the best day of our lives. One thing that I did was save money by doing my own makeup. My makeup was just the way I like it and it was so easy to do it myself. Here are some tips on saving money on your wedding hair and makeup!
If you’re planning a wedding, you’ll probably have spent a whole lot of money by the time it comes
round to booking your bridal hair and makeup for the big day. If, like most brides, you want to make
sure that your bridal look is absolutely perfect, ykou’re probably considering splashing the cash on a
professional makeup artist and hairdresser to ensure that your beauty routine is spot on. But, this
can be costly, especially if you’ve already spent a lot of money on things such as the dress, cars, and
venue. So, we’ve came up with some great alternatives which will leave you looking and feeling just
as gorgeous for your big day.
Take a Makeup Lesson
If you’re already quite good at applying makeup and do your own makeup perfectly every day,
there’s no reason why you shouldn’t consider doing your own bridal makeup, too. After all, you
know which products work best for you and what’s going to suit you best! To gain some valuable
skills and get the confidence you need to do your own bridal makeup, you might want to consider
taking a lesson from a professional. This will cost you more than having your makeup done on the
day, and you’ll pick up some great tips for everyday wear, too.
Hire an Assistant
If the idea of doing your own bridal makeup is giving you sweaty palms, you might want to consider
hiring a makeup artist’s assistant instead. They will often charge a lot less than the actual artist
themselves, but since many assistants have been working closely alongside a makeup artist for
months or even years, you can definitely rely on them to know what they’re doing and produce
results that you love. If you really want to splash out on a professional makeup artist, why not
consider saving money by booking a wedding package with UK Wedding Savings, leaving you with
more money in the budget for beauty.
Visit a Salon
For many brides, it’s much more convenient to have their makeup artist and hairdresser visit them
at their home or hotel on the morning of the wedding to make sure that they’re looking perfect for
when they walk down the aisle. However, the downside of this is that it is also more expensive, as
you’ll often have to pay fuel costs for the beauticians to come out. Instead, it could work out
cheaper for you and your bridal party to visit the salon. Find a good salon close to your home or
where you are staying on the morning of the wedding and make sure that they’re well prepared to
ensure everything goes smoothly for you.
Keep It Simple
When it comes to your hair, keeping it simple is the best option. Don’t opt for any drastic hair
changes right before or on your wedding day – not only will this cost you more, but there’s also a lot
of risk of it going horrendously wrong! Simple up-do’s, or even a gorgeous curly blow dry make for
beautiful wedding hair and don’t cost a lot.
