The Golden Time is 1 month Prior to Your Actual Day Wedding

When is a good time to have your bridal trial? The answer is 1 month before your actual day wedding as you would have already chosen your wedding dress and theme. It will allow your makeup artist to find the look that will look the best with your gown and wedding theme. In addition, your makeup artist would be able to have a better grasp of how your hair length, texture, as well as skin condition would be on the actual day. If the bridal trial is done too early, it might not be the most accurate at that point in time. Hence, 1 month is the Golden Time.

Research Beforehand

To get the most out of your bridal trial, doing some research online would be a major help to figure out what you like and dislike for your makeup and hairstyle. Find a few looks that you can imagine yourself with on the big day and show them to your makeup artist. This will drastically speed up the process and give your makeup artist a better idea of what you would like to have or avoid.

Wear Something Similar to Your Wedding Dress

Wearing a similar color and neckline to your wedding dress will allow you to get a clearer picture of how the hair and makeup are going to look on your wedding day and if any amendments to the makeup and hairstyle would be required.

Come with A Blank Slate

Arriving at your appointment with a clean face with no makeup on is important as it will allow the makeup artist to have a better feel of your skin, and allow them to work from a clean slate. The same goes for your hair as well. Make sure it is clean and freshly washed, however, don't apply any product in it. Avoid conditioners, oils, and mousses as they can make your hair harder to style.

Bring Your Accessories

If you plan on wearing any accessories or veil on your wedding day, bring them to your trial appointment. This will help you get the whole picture more clearly and accessories are going to be a part of the discussion when picking the best hair and makeup too.

Express Your Opinions

Once the appointment starts, don't be afraid to speak up and say what you like and dislike. That's the whole point of the trial. You want to work together with your hairstylist and makeup artist to achieve the look of your dreams. Express your opinions, but also trust the process and your makeup artist. Additionally, you can run your stopwatch so you can get a better idea of how much time the makeup and hair actually take. That way you can plan properly on your wedding day.
