Wedding Wednesday!

I haven't done a Wedding Wednesday post for a while and I thought I would share my lastest story with you.

It finally happened! It’s been a really long and interesting road but the search is over. I have found my perfect match. Are you wondering what I’m talking about? The perfect dress, the perfect venue, the perfect prince charming….

Well yes I’ve found all that stuff already, but what I have FINALLY found is someone to do my wedding hair and makeup. I realize this may not seem like a big deal but this has been a rough subject lately. As you may have read previously I had a bad experience getting my makeup done for Ace and I’s engagement pictures and that was supposed to be my “trial” for the wedding. STRIKE ONE!

Okay, no problem, I talked to a salon close to my mom’s house and they said they do wedding hair and makeup. So I go in for a consultation and the lady said she doesn’t have any makeup but we can bring our own and she can put it on for us. Ummm, what? Then I show her like six pictures of pretty wedding hair that I stole from Pinterest and she got to working her magic. Or so I thought that’s what she was doing. She curled and teased the mess out of everything and since I want a half up/half down hairdo she took the hair from the sides of my face and literally tied them in a knot at the back of my head. The anticipation was killing me and I was all excited until the she turns the chair around. The only way I can think to describe it is “Thank you for the country music award”. Let’s just say I was not happy. STRIKE TWO!

I decide to ask around and talked to a friend about a great salon I had been to years ago and thought it would be perfect. So I called and guess what, there was a girl who called the day before who is getting married on the same day that I am, but in North Carolina and the whole salon was going up for that. Are you kidding me! Well they called me back and a girl could stay back and do my hair. Yay! Next was to schedule a trial before I set up my bridal portraits. Well apparently the girl only works every other Monday and some Saturdays. I’m sorry, what? I don’t live in Columbia, the portraits will be in Charleston, and my dress is in Greenville, so along with trying to coordinate all that I also need to schedule it on a random Monday (because the photographer and venue are working actual weddings on Saturdays). I don’t think so. STRIKE THREE!

I was officially worried. Then I randomly told my hair/makeup story to a friend and she suggested a place I hadn’t thought of. I called them, set up an appointment in 5 minutes, showed the hair stylist my pictures, she did her thing and at the end of 15 minutes I had the perfect wedding hairstyle. Seriously, could it be this easy? The next test was the makeup trial. I had my trusty pictures, and not only did she follow them but she improved on them. It was so beyond easy. I guess the first tries were just to add to my fun list of wedding planning stories. Anyway, to wrap everything up, I have my hair and makeup all scheduled, awesome!
