Okay. So you want to save money and you may even be throwing a budget wedding. If you plan on getting photos taken, please please please, spend a few extra bucks on a hair and makeup artist.
- Make sure to schedule a consultation, and a makeup application before your wedding with your makeup artist. Call it a date night (with your future husband or just a girls night out)
- Go natural. You are already beautiful. A skilled makeup artist can bring out that beauty. Remember the 80's? You don't want your wedding photos to remind you of 80's prom night (if you are having trouble remembering google 80's prom photos)
- Avoid shiny makeup. Any makeup that sparkles or is glossy spells disaster for wedding photos. Matte is the way to go.
- Carry blotting tissue. It's the best $5 you'll ever spend.
