INSTRUCTIONS FOR ON YOUR WEDDING DAY

  • NOTE SETUP: IT IS PREFERABLE IF HAIR AND MAKE-UP CAN BE SETUP NEARBY, BUT NOT NECESSARILY DIRECTLY BESIDE EACH OTHER. THE HEAT FROM THE HAIRDRYERS AND NOISE/AIRFLOW CAN BE DISRUPTIVE AND MAY CAUSE THE CLIENT/S TO SWEAT. AIR FROM THE DRYERS CAN ALSO BLOW LOOSE MAKE-UP POWDER AND EYESHADOWS AROUND IF THE CLIENTS ARE SEATED TOO CLOSE TOGETHER
     
  • FOR HAIR: PLEASE ALLOW AMPLE TABLE SPACE AND A POSITION NEAR AN ELECTRICAL OUTLET AND IN FRONT OF A LONG MIRROR (IF POSSIBLE) 
     
  • FOR MAKE-UP: PLEASE ENSURE THERE IS AMPLE TABLE SPACE TO SETUP EQUIPMENT; AND ALLOW US TO BE CLOSEST TO A POSITION WHERE THERE IS THE BEST NATURAL LIGHT POSSIBLE
  • PLEASE ENSURE EVERYBODY'S FACE IS FRESHLY CLEANSED AND HAS NO TRACES OF RESIDUE MAKE-UP OR MASCARA; FACES SHOULD HAVE BEEN EXFOLIATED AND HYDRATION-MASKED THE NIGHT BEFORE (OR BEFORE WE START IN THE MORNING); BONITA WILL APPLY MOISTURISER AND PRIMER TO SKIN AS SOME MOISTURISER BRANDS WILL CONFLICT WITH THE WAY THE FOUNDATION SITS ON THE SKIN
  • PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU INFORM BONITA IF YOU OR ANY OF THE BRIDAL PARTY HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN OR ANY ALLERGIES BEFORE BEGINNING THE MAKE-UP PROCEDURE
  • MAKE SURE ALL OF YOU (ESPECIALLY THE BRIDE) ARE WEARING SOMETHING LOOSE FITTING THAT CAN BE REMOVED EASILY WHEN YOU CHANGE INTO YOUR GARMENTS – WE DO NOT WANT ANY BRA STRAP MARKS, AND NO MAKE-UP SMUDGES WHEN CHANGING INTO YOUR GOWN, NOR ANY HAIR DISASTERS!
  • IT IS A GOOD IDEA TO USE A CHANGE SCARF – JUST ANY CLEAN SCARF OR LIGHT CLOTH/TOWEL THAT YOU CAN LAY OVER YOUR HEAD WHILST YOU SLIP INTO YOUR GOWN SO THAT THE MAKE-UP DOES NOT GET ONTO THE DRESS WHEN IT GOES OVER YOUR HEAD!
  • TRY SPRAYING YOUR PERFUME INTO THE AIR IN FRONT OF YOU AND WALK INTO IT SEVERAL TIMES – AT LEAST 15 MINS BEFORE GETTING INTO YOUR GOWN; DO NOT SPRAY YOUR SKIN DIRECTLY (UNLESS DONE AN HOUR BEFOREHAND) OR ELSE YOU WILL LEAVE RED BLOTCH MARKS ON YOUR SKIN WHERE THE ALCOHOL HAS EVAPORATED
  • VERY IMPORTANT: THE BRIDE SHOULD NEVER BE LEFT TO HAVE HAIR NOR MAKE-UP COMPLETED LAST; THE SCHEDULED CO-ORDINATION OF WHO WILL BE GETTING READY (AND AT WHAT TIMECALL) SHOULD BE ORGANIZED PRIOR TO THE WEDDING DAY VIA DISCUSSION WITH BONITA AND COMMUNICATED TO THE BRIDE AND ALL INVOLVED PRIOR TO THE MORNING OF THE BIG DAY. THIS WILL ENSURE A SMOOTH PROCESS IN THE GETTING-READY STAGE ON THE DAY, AND ALSO ALLOW THE BRIDE TIME TO GET DRESSED AND HAVE SOME PRE-WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY SNAPS TAKEN WITH THE BRIDAL PARTY AND FAMILY MEMBERS BEFORE YOU HAVE TO LEAVE YOUR HOME OR HOTEL.

 

LAST, BUT NOT LEAST… REMEMBER TO RELAX… ENJOY THE MOMENT...

 

THIS IS YOUR WEDDING DAY... YOU ALL LOOK BEAUTIFUL !

 

BUT MOST OF ALL … PLEASE HAVE FUN


AND THANK YOU FOR CHOOSING US TO SHARE YOUR BIG DAY!
