There are so many decisions that need to be made during the wedding planning process and some are more fun to make than others. One of the most fun decisions that many brides make is what their hair and makeup will look like on their wedding day. In this blog, we’re going to discuss tips and tricks that you can use to make sure that your wedding hair and makeup is exactly how you want it to be for your big day.

Choosing Your Wedding Hair and Makeup

It can be slightly overwhelming to think about all of your different hair and makeup options, as there are so many different looks to choose from. Below are a few different tricks that you can use to narrow down your options and make sure that you get the look that’s right for you.

How Many Looks

One of the most important things to think about is how many looks you want to have for your big day. Do you want your hair to be the same at the ceremony and reception? Do you want two different looks? Answering this question is a great first step, as it can help you be sure that you’re headed in the right direction.


If you are going to have two different looks for your ceremony and reception, it’s important to make sure that the person who’s doing your hair and makeup will be available for that slot of time. Many people choose to only do one look, so be sure that you’re clear with your hair/makeup artist about what you want for your big day.

Overall Vibes

The overall vibes of your big day are another important thing to keep in mind. When planning your wedding, you want to be sure that everything is coherent and fits together well. This means making sure that your entire look, including your dress, hair, makeup, and shoes, fits together well.


If you’re not sure how to make sure that your whole look will be coherent, consider starting by making a wedding vision board. This can be a helpful way to make sure that you’re on the right track and that all of your decisions are working well together.

Indoor or Outdoor?

If you’re having an outdoor wedding, then that could potentially impact the hair and makeup that you have. It’s important to make sure that you choose a professional who’s familiar with the differences that outdoor weddings can require, so that they’ll be able to account for weather, wind, temperature, and other factor that could influence your look.


Most people already have their wedding venue and date picked out by the time that they start planning their bridal look. If you haven’t done these things, consider taking that first step and then returning to your look at a later date when you have more information available about your big day and what it will require.
