For the best experience, we recommend scheduling your trial 1-3 months before your beautiful day. This ensures you have a clear vision in mind for your bridal look and finer details are finalised like. colours, jewellery, florals.
We recommend checking with your photographer what time they would like all hair and makeup complete ready for photos. From past experience, this is usually approximately 1.5 -2 hours before your ceremony. We will work back from this finish time to discover our starting time. We will provide an estimate within your bridal proposal and confirm your schedule with you 4 weeks ahead of your amazing day!
This depends on the size of your bridal party! For hair and makeup packages of 4-6 people, we allocate 2 specialists. If your bride tribe includes 7+ people, you will have 3 or more specialists as a part of your glam squad.
You're more than welcome to book an in salon hair and makeup appointment with us prior to booking your wedding. Due to demand, we're unable to place a hold on a wedding date without a deposit, so it isn't considered a trial and there is still the chance we may book out before you have the chance to pay your deposit following your trial.
Another reason we recommend having your trial closer to your wedding, is to ensure the same specialists will be available. Circumstances change - someone may leave the industry, go on maternity leave or holidays or move interstate/overseas.
But I can guarantee you we will try to put you with your requested artists if its at all possible and if not you will be matched with incredible artists who you will still meet at your included bridal preview 1-3 months before your wedding.
Yes you are absolutely welcome to request your favourite Blush'd Brides specialist! You can add their name to the 'requested specialist' field in your initial enquiry, add their name in your bridal proposal questionnaire, or send our admin team an email. Artist requests are always considered and we will do everything possible to cater to your request, however it is not guaranteed due to varying availability, or your requested specialist may have already been requested on your date. You are always welcome to check in with us prior to booking if you would like to know whether a certain specialist is currently available on your wedding date!
We will assist you with a custom schedule for your hair/makeup on your wedding day. Timing can vary depending on how many specialists make up your glam squad. Each specialist allows approximately 1 hour per service, or longer for extra long and thick hair types or application of hair extensions. We also schedule in a 30 minute window at the end for touch ups.
We will provide guidance throughout your journey and more personalised advice! But here is a guideline:
For best results and to work within our time schedule, we require each guest have clean, dry hair and clean, hydrated skin, makeup free - including that leftover eyeliner that is difficult to remove! ;)
The night before
Double cleanse, gently exfoliate your face, apply a hydrating sheet mask (the one from Go-To is amazing!) and moisturise.
Wash (2 shampoos and condition mid-lengths to ends) and blow dry your hair smooth. Leave it out or put softly in a low pony, no tight buns that kink the hair.
If embracing your natural curl, do what you would normally do to have your curls looking their best. You don't need to blow dry smooth!
The morning of
Cleanse and moisturise your skin. If you usually apply serum, oils or eye cream, you are free to do your regular morning skincare routine. We will begin with a cleanse when we get to your makeup but it is important to keep your skin hydrated in the meantime.
This applies to all having their hair/makeup done.
We don’t exclusively use a certain brand, but a selection of all our favourite products from different luxury, high end and professional brands. Some of our faves include Dior, Hourglass, M.A.C, Charlotte Tilbury for makeup, and White Sands, KYK Haircare, Milk Shake, NAK for hairstyling.
We like to encourage our brides to start looking at securing the vendors you love as soon as you have locked in your wedding date with your venue, to avoid disappointment. If you wait, it could mean missing out on a vendor you had your heart set on. For our bridal team, dates are booking out fast and well in advance. I would recommend providing at least 9-12 months notice, but always enquire with us even if your date is coming up soon. We’ll do everything we can to cater to you if our availability allows.

You will hear from us within 1-2 business days with your personalised bridal proposal for your chosen package and information about how to book.
