wedding planning

Try Me

photo 7 "Wedding planning" is a pretty way of saying making a ton of tough decisions. I know this, I appreciate it. That's why when my brides choose to hire ME as their hairdresser for the most important day of their life, I don't take it for granted. That decision to choose me... it makes me so excited!

Hair trials are SO important. I do have brides that decide not to do trials, and they've never been less than obsessed with their hair on the day of, but a trial helps me to understand your vision, and gives you the opportunity to see it come to life. Sometimes seeing a photo of Jessica Alba rock glamour waves is all you think about, but when you see that same hair on your head, maybe you realize you kinda want it up! Scheduling a trial not only solidifies that you love the look, but alleviates day-of stress. On your wedding day you should sip your mimosa, hang with your besties and know exactly what I'm doing behind the chair. No guessing or hoping that you'll love it.

TIP: I recommend scheduling a hair trial for two months before your wedding!

Hello from Mexico! So glad Emilia is guest posting today! This girl is full of wisdom and constantly makes me want to be better at everything I do. Emilia is the talented photographer of Emilia Jane Photography, and her blog combines love, life, and signature cocktails. Enough said.



So! Who knows someone that got engaged over the holidays?? I feel like my facebook has been wall to wall with relationship change notifications the past couple weeks.

Just a few helpful tips for all of you newly engaged lovelies :-) Though honestly, this first little treat is hilarious regardless of your relationship status!

1. If you haven’t yet, go check out A Practical Wedding’s Emily Gutman has crafted these goodies that keep me laughing. 2. Take a hot second to just enjoy being engaged! Don’t rush the planning right off the bat.

3. Have a real chat with your fiance about what you both want your wedding to look like. Maybe it’s in a ballroom with a big band? Maybe it’s just the two of you under a big tree in the middle of nowhere? Whatever you’re dreaming of, talk through it together before you take any further steps!

4. Remember that the marriage is way more important than the wedding! Don’t let the small stuff with planning make you sweat.

5. Hire vendors you trust to do an amazing job. And then let them do it!

6. Drink some bubbly and just enjoy it ;-) Okay…I may be skipping a few steps here. But I promise I’ve hit the most important ones!
