What is required to book my wedding?

A signed contract and 40% deposit are required to reserve your wedding date. All weddings are booked on a first come, first serve basis. 

What forms of payment are accepted?

MLady Artistry accepts all major credit cards, checks and cash. However, it is policy that any payments made on the morning of the wedding ONLY be in the form of cash or credit card. An additional 3% fee is applied to ALL credit card transactions throughout the booking process. 

Is there a hair and makeup minimum in order to book my wedding? 

Yes. A 5 service minimum PER ARTIST is required in order to book a wedding; this means that in addition to the bride, 4 more bridesmaids (or individuals) must be booked. Any number of services less than 5 may require an additional travel fee.

Are there travels and/or parking fees?

There are no travels fees with a booking of the minimum services per artist if within 50 miles of 92010. A travel charge may apply per mileage for locations outside of this range. For all events, parking and/or valet are to be paid by the client.

Is booking a bridal beauty preview required?

No. It is not required to schedule a bridal preview, however it is recommended. As you have a desired vision for your wedding day look, it would be beneficial to meet with Samantha to go over all your details for your look. Should the bride prefer to not have a preview, we do ask that you send photos of desired hair and makeup looks.

Can I change the number of hair and/or makeup services after booking with MLady Artistry?

Upon paying a deposit to book MLady Artistry, the bride commits to the amount of services that she has signed her contract for. Add-ons are always welcomed as long as the increase in numbers is communicated as soon as possible. However, should a decrease in service numbers suddenly occur, the bride is still responsible for paying MLady Artistry the remaining balance reflected in her client contract and invoice; ALL services initially booked must be paid for.

What time do we need to get started with hair & makeup on the morning of my wedding?

Wedding hair and makeup start times depend on the bridal party's "ready time" established by the wedding day photographer. Once the wedding is booked and the photographer communicates their timing with the bride, your artists will specify all hair and makeup timelines. 

How long does it take to do hair & makeup on the morning of my wedding?

The bride's hair and makeup will take one hour each. Bridesmaids and moms hair appointments are expected to take 30 minutes; makeup 45 minutes. Again, once the "ready time" is established by the wedding day photographer, your artists will construct a bridal beauty timeline specifying ALL appointment times and orders.

Can I have my artists stay for touchups and/or a second look?

Depending on your contract, and the timing of your specific wedding day, you may want your artists stay to do touchups right until you are ready to walk down the aisle. This is completely optional. For brides looking to have a second look for hair, makeup or both for your reception, then it is a great option. Please Note: an HOURLY RATE per artist will apply, starting at the time your timeline ends after getting the bridal party and yourself ready and ending when you no longer need additional touchups. This must be determined and paid in advance, any additional time needed is due in cash.
