Q: Is a Beauty Preview Required

While we do not require it, we highly recommend it. We understand that your Bridal Beauty is an investment and that booking a Bridal Beauty Preview appointment might not fit in your wedding budget, however it is best to address any edits BEFORE your wedding day. 

We want our Brides to know that it is our desire to offer you and your bridal party a luxury beauty experience.

During your Bridal Beauty Preview you will get the opportunity to learn the best way to achieve your desired look and will be able to consult with your artist/stylist about any recommendations to ensure that your vision may be brought to life.

Q: How does the booking process work?

Option 1:

Ready to book your hair and makeup preview but not ready to reserve your wedding date? That's OK! We know you have many vendors to choose from and picking the right one can be overwhelming and we want to make sure we are able to give each bride the experience she is looking for. We recommend scheduling your Bridal Beauty Previews with us first (this is the fun part)!

Previews are performed Tuesday-Friday and Sundays* at our studio in Aliso Viejo. To secure your preview and artist we require your $400 preview fee to be paid up front. This fee not only pays for your bridal preview services, it also puts a tentative hold on your Wedding Date until your preview is complete. This payment will be applied towards your package when you book.

During your 2 hour preview appointment, we will have the opportunity to meet discuss in detail how you envision yourself walking down the aisle. We will assess your look and recommend ways to bring out your favorite features. You will have the opportunity to try on different looks and make any necessary edits to your bridal look so that you are not only confident but you will get to a first have preview into your personalized experience with us!

This must be scheduled within 30 days of booking your preview. 

Option 2:

Already know you want to move forward to reserve your wedding date and artist?  All wedding dates are confirmed only with a $200 non-refundable deposit with a signed Bridal Services Agreement. Not certain about the final headcount for hair and makeup? That's OK! We can always add/subtract services even after you've confirmed your wedding date up to 30 days prior to your wedding - see your Bridal Services Agreement for official terms and fees. We recommend option 2 for all Brides who are booking with us from out of State or who are requesting us for their Destination Wedding.

Q: Can I add services after I've signed my contract?

Yes!  You may add services to your contract prior to your wedding date if time & additional artists allow. It is best to finalize a count of all services as far in advanced as possible.

Terms and Conditions apply, please refer to your service agreement more information.
