How we work
Every artist at Once Upon A Bride follows a stress-free, highly effective system developed by Stacey based on her extensive experience with brides on their wedding day.
Your artists will be booked exclusively for you. As their only bride that day, you will be exactly where you should be on your wedding day: the center of their attention.
Your artists will travel to you, bringing all their professional hair and makeup equipment to your location. They will arrive fully prepared, having already reviewed the detailed notes they made and photographs they took during your trial.
In advance, Stacey will set up a wedding-day schedule for your team of artists to ensure you and everyone in your bridal party is ready in plenty of time for the ceremony. We believe that good preparation is the foundation for long-lasting hair and makeup, so we build extra time into the schedule. You won’t feel rushed, because with our system, the process is smooth and chaos free.
By the time you step into your dress, you will be good to go—and so will we. Because we give so much attention to preparing your hair and makeup, it’s unlikely you will need us for touch-ups, but for your peace of mind we are happy to stay, with advance notice.
Your artists will work with you on the wedding day to create any look you want for your bridal party. Bring photos as inspiration, or let us do something original and beautiful that complements your look. We offer discounted rates for your bridal party’s hair and makeup. And if you have a big bridal party, we will bring along an additional stylist to make sure everything goes smoothly. So the mothers of the bride and groom feel special and look perfect on the day, we can be booked for their hair and makeup too.
