A: Travel to the brides site is complimentary as long as it's within 60 miles roundtrip from the Annapolis/Baltimore/DC area. Travel fees of $1.50 per mile incur outside the area and are discussed with the bride prior to signing the contract.
Q: I'm ready to book what do I need to do to lock in my date?
A: The first step to locking in your date will be to fill out our Bridal Reservation Form and place your deposit of $150 per service type. A more detailed contract will be completed on or before the pretrial.
Q: When is the final headcount due?
A: An initial headcount is done when the contract is completed and a final headcount is due 45 days prior to your event. Under contract the bride can not remove any services, but additions are always welcome.
Q: When should I book my pre-trial and where is it done?
A: Your pre-trial can be scheduled at any time but it is not recommended to wait any closer than 45 days before the event. Trials are either done in our studio when available or at the brides location.
Q: Is there anything I can do to prepare for my pre-trial?
A: The most important tip to prepare for your trial is to have pictures of the makeup or hair you would like to try. You should also have your hair clean, face moisturized, and wear something white to have an idea of what it will look like with your dress.
Q: Is there a minimum number to book?
A: Yes we require the bride plus four (4) services of either hair or makeup to book. If the bride is requesting only her party to be serviced, there will be a six (6) service minimum to reserve the date.
Q: How much time do you need per person?
A: We prefer to have 60 minutes per service type with the bride and 30-45 minutes per service type for hair or makeup. A timeline will be prepared after the final headcount and presented to the bride.
Q: Do you service women with ethnic skin tones and natural hair?
A: Yes we have many years experience with darker skin tones and natural hair and have all types of makeup and hairstyling products that are made for this type of skin color and hair type.
Q: What kind of makeup do you use?
A: We use a variety of high-end makeup brands but favor Temptu silicone based airbrush makeup for our airbrush foundation. We do favor MAC cosmetics for some products but have many favorites in lots of other high-end brands.
Q: Do you offer any additional discounts?
A: For larger bridal parties please contact us for special rates. Other discounts or promotional pricing would be part of event specials such as promotions ran while attending an affiliated bridal show.
Q: When is the final balance due?
A: The balance minus the deposit is due either before the event or on the day of which can be paid by each individual client. We accept credit cards, cash, and checks.
Q: I know other ladies that are getting married do you offer a referral program?
A: Yes every bride you refer will receive 10% off her choice of service. As a thank you for your referral you will be sent a $10 gift card to MAC cosmetics.
