In the midst of organizing and choosing the table settings, the dress, the church and reception locations, and the guest list, hair and makeup may seem like minor details in the midst of your grandiose Chicago wedding. However, think of your wedding pictures. The majority of the wedding photos are of the bride—behind the bride as she tries on her dress, her veil, her shoes, and in front of the bride as she walks down the aisle, has her first kiss with her groom, dances at the reception, and get encircled by her bridesmaids. Hair and makeup are actually the first features (other than the dress perhaps) noticed by all the guests at the wedding. Leaving those two essential items to chance is quite a risk for any bride.
Hiring a bridal hair and makeup artist, though yet another expense of a wedding, is necessary for any bride who wishes to look beautiful on her wedding day. VIP Chicago Brides artists know the details behind the camera that will allow the bride to look her best—the correct colors of eye-shadow, the right amount of cover-up and bronzer that does not look caked on in photos, the correct hair-style for any weather and any gown style. Our professionals will give constant touch-ups before important photos for the bride and her bridesmaids. We can fix up-dos that have fallen, shadow that has powdered on your cheeks, and mascara that has bled. Your bridesmaids will be incredibly busy dealing with the smaller issues of the wedding that a professional make-up and hair artist will be necessary for any bride. Rather than dealing with your mother-in-law who thinks bright blue extreme eye-shadow will go “just perfectly!” with your demure wedding gown and simple up-do, use a professional.
