Wedding Day Logistics

On the wedding day, the makeup will be done following a timeline. We take hair and makeup as artists finish and people are ready. The bride must communicate the importance of being on time and properly prepared. The bride must confirm and commit to the number of services stated in contract. Charges will include all people stated listed there. Any additional added services will be paid for the day of the event. The stylist(s) need a designated space to set up when on location, and the bride is responsible for clearing an area before the stylist arrives. The hair and makeup stylist(s) will need a work area with a chair near an outlet (for airbrush) in a no walk-through traffic area. Good light and a mirror are a plus! If services cannot be performed due to insufficient work conditions or tardiness, all fees still apply.

The session will take place at Wingard Salon, 805 S Neil Street Champaign, Illinois, or a location agreed upon by both the stylist and bride.  When a deposit is made ahead of time, there are no charges for the day of the trial, but are invoiced the day of the wedding, less your $100 deposit. If contract is not yet signed and deposit has not yet been made, trial services are due upon completion in salon. Trials are available and welcomed for any part of the wedding party. The remaining balance of the services rendered for the trial will be added to the final cost of all services due one day prior to the wedding.
