How long will it take to complete my hair and makeup? Can you complete a large bridal party in a short timeframe? 

Services are customized for each bride and her bridal party, but the average time per person is 20-40 minutes per service.  We will be happy to assist you in determining a relaxed, yet organized schedule to keep you looking gorgeous and on time!

Our artists are highly skilled and specialize in weddings!  Through continuing education and professional training, our team is incredibly efficient and able to accommodate oversized bridal parties in a timely manner.   In fact, most brides are pleasantly surprised to find that we’ve completed everyone ahead of schedule while creating intricate hairstyles and flawless makeup.

Still worried about time? Ask us for references of our past brides who have had large bridal parties.

Where are consultations/trials offered?

Pre-wedding hair and makeup trials leave you feeling confident about the services you will receive on your wedding day. Trials are performed in our studio locations by appointment only. Contact us to schedule a date and time for your trial.

What items should I bring to the trial?

• Inspiration photos of hairstyles and makeup that you would like to try

• Accessories, veils or flowers that you plan to wear in your hair

• List of allergies to any products.

How many artists will be present for my wedding day?

As we specialize in weddings, all of our training and education is directed to handling large parties in a shorter amount of time. We typically send out one hairstylist and one makeup artist per wedding.  If you would prefer additional artist(s) to provide services on the day of your wedding, this option is available per Up Do's For I Do's discretion and may incur an additional fee. 

Is there a travel fee?

Please contact us with the exact location, including street address and zip code to determine if a travel fee is applicable

How should I prepare for on-site services on my wedding day?

To ensure that your hair and makeup services flow smoothly, we recommend the following:

·      Provide a chair and table near an electrical outlet 

·      Ample lighting is beneficial for makeup services; natural light works well too

·      Wear a button up shirt or robe

·      Avoid washing hair the day of the wedding; “Second day” hair works best

·      Dry hair that has not been flat-ironed works best for all styles

·      Apply only facial moisturizer to clean skin

·      Make sure that all members of your party are present when we arrive

The week of your wedding, we will be sending you and your bridal party a final confirmation that includes detailed tips and instructions for your big day!

How quickly do you book for wedding dates?

April through November weekend dates fill more quickly.  We have booked as far out as 18 months and as soon as 30 days out, depending on the date.  

Which brands of cosmetics do you use?

Our makeup artists use these professional, camera ready products: MAC Cosmetics, TemptuPro, Smashbox, Tarte, Cinema Secrets, Chanel, Too Faced, NARS, Graftobian, Makeup Forever, Stila, Eve Pearl, NYX, Urban Decay, Benefit, Lorac, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Jane Iredale, and Dermalogica.  Concerns about a particular product or allergies to specific brands or ingredients should be addressed during your trial.

May I bring my own cosmetics?

If you have a favorite product or tool, bring it along and we will experiment with incorporating it during your trial.

Is there a “backup plan?”

Absolutely!  With a large team of professionals, we are committed to ensuring that your wedding day services are completed as promised.  We can easily transfer our detailed notes and photos of your wedding day look to another team member if necessary.

Do you offer a Military Discount?

We offer $25 off the contract total for all active military. Thank you for your service.

"The morning of my wedding Up Do's For I Do's showed up early and the entire time kept right on schedule! There were 9 girls total getting hair and makeup so I expected to run late, but we finished early and had time for touch ups! I felt 100% beautiful on my wedding day and my bridesmaids look all came together! I have to thank Up Do's For I Do's! The staff had a way of keeping girls calm and really listening to their wants and needs to ensure they felt beautiful as they walked down the isle! Not to mention-- everyone looked perfect during the entire day/night despite the crazy dancing and long hours of drinking ! Thanks Up Do's For I Do's!" J.S. 4.9.15
