Vendor Spotlight: Ode to Wedding Tresses


Hi ladies, I had my hair and makeup trial over the weekend and I have to admit, I was nervous. I’m a little particular when it comes to my hair and makeup, and I felt wary about having someone else do it for me. Can any of you brides relate? Plus, let’s face it, a week after the wedding my man will not be able to recall a single detail about my dress but he will definitely remember if my hair was a mess and I had clown make up on. So, hence my worry.

I chose Wedding Tresses for my hair and makeup because I’d worked with them on a gorgeous Style Me Pretty photo shoot in 2009 and they did an amazing job. Plus, Jackie is such a sweetheart and is SO easy to work with! I went into my trial with a few pictures and ideas and both Jackie, who did my hair, and Holly (makeup artist extraordinaire) did a great job of taking the photos and running with them. By the end, I looked like a slightly more glam version of myself, which is just what I was going for. The last thing I wanted was to not look like myself on my big day. Plus they both had great tips regarding the hair and makeup for my bridal party, mother and future mother in law. Long story short, I should have stopped worrying the minute I booked them!

A few more reasons I adore Wedding Tresses:

1.Their location on Newbury Street is super cute and inviting. Myself and a few others brides were there at the same time and it was so much fun to see what the others were doing and chit chat with everyone.
2. They will travel to you on your wedding day. One less thing to coordinate = heaven.
3. They use makeup that Jackie herself created! It is super lightweight and smooth; my skin never looked so good!
4. All of the girls there seem to really enjoy what they do and they will not let you leave until you are 100% satisfied.

OK, I could go on and on, but check them out for yourself and you’ll see what I mean! This is one thing on your to-do list that you will not have to worry about, I promise!

TTFN beautiful brides!

Appointment Tips: It’s all about the Benjamin’s baby!!

Ladies, we know that weddings can be an astronomical expense. Believe us, we are both planning Boston weddings as we speak!  So we know that every penny counts! Make sure you keep that in mind when coming in for your bridesmaid/bridal 
appointments!! 
“What’s your budget?” is usually one of the first questions we ask you ladies when you come in so make sure you have asked your girls or you personally know how much you feel comfortable spending.  That way you are never stuck in a sticky situation with your lovely ladies.  

However, if you do happen to fall in love with a dress that is a little bit out of reach for your girls it is always nice to put a few dollars towards their dresses so that both you and your girls end up happy with gorgeous dresses without having to spend wayyyyyy out of their budget!

XOXO
