Should my bridal party get their makeup done?
Yes! What’s more beautiful than a cohesive look? We think there are many reasons why the entire bridal should get their makeup done professionally. Here are three:
1. Everyone should look like they are attending the same party! If your dearest friends agreed to stand with you on your wedding day, arranged for travel and altered their gowns to fit perfectly, they are also willing to meet the bride at the level of polished beauty.
2. Guaranteed – the pictures will look better! A professional artist will make sure everyone looks like their best selves (that girlfriend with the penchant for rock n’ roll eyeliner? Have a professional do it and it will look softer). Bonus: a really great makeup artist will not allow anyone to walk down the aisle with tan lines, ruining the pictures.
3. The time you spend with your bridesmaids on your wedding morning is irreplaceable. They will keep you calm, bring perspective, and create a fun and festive atmosphere. Time is the most valuable commodity in life.
How to pay? Consider making professional makeup the bridesmaid gifts, or offer to cover half the cost.
