With weddings being costly, Las Vegas wedding makeup artist, Brianna Michelle breaks down the cost of what goes into your cost of a wedding hair and makeup session.
You Get What You Pay For
We have all heard that term, right? Well instead of just taking someone’s word for it, I am here to break it down for you from a business perspective.
First and foremost, the bride service is always more than the rest of her wedding party because we do spend way more time with the bride! Those extra dollars help go into all the online consultations and time we spend emailing back and forth to ensure her day runs smooth. In addition, there are business licensing fees, makeup products, brush cleaners, continued education, phone bills, office supplies, gas, and administration fees. There is, also, the time of packing and cleaning brushes after a days work and emailing back and forth to make sure you wedding day runs smooth. These aren’t even all the expenses it takes to run a business, but you get the point.
These additional costs are factored into every bridal appointment. It is industry standard to spend way more time on the bride on her wedding day. Make sure your artist is spending more time with you to make sure you are happy with the overall look. I mean it is “your special day!” You don’t want cheap makeup, and makeup isn’t cheap. Your wedding day is not something you want to get at the bargain price for $49.99.
Las Vegas Wedding Makeup Artist Tips
If your looking to gain a quality wedding hair and makeup artist, it is best to book early. That way, also you can have time to save for the wedding, so it doesn’t feel your forking out a tin of money all at once. I know some brides book a year and a half in advance for their wedding, so they do not feel the financial pressure. This will help you slowly be able to pay off your wedding vendors, and feel great about the good quality of people you have hired for the big day!
XOXO, Brianna Michelle
