Whether you choose to go to a salon or have your makeup done at home, having a trial
done prior to the wedding is a must. You can get a feel for the products they will be
using and you can determine prior to the wedding day what look you are going for.
After having the trial done your makeup artist should make notes on any comments your
provide, such as “lipstick is a bit too dark” or “needs more blush”. Be sure to speak up
during the trial about anything you aren’t satisfied with. This gives your makeup artist a
chance to have it perfect for the big day.

The ultimate resource for planning Hamilton weddings
Bridal hair and makeup is a key element in looking your
best on your wedding day. Hamilton salons and spas
offer bridal packages for a winning look for the perfect day.
Visiting a Hamilton Spa prior to your wedding is a
nice way to relax and enjoy this special time. It is a
great way to spend some time with a close friend,
family member, or even your bridal party. Ask
about packages for a half or full day of pampering.
Manicures & Pedicures
It’s always a nice treat to have your nails done for the big day as well. Most salons and
spas offer these services, as well as specialized nail salons and boutiques. It’s a good
idea to consider getting them done a day or two before the wedding to save time on the
big day. If you are planning to go with your bridal party as a group, be sure to book this
well in advance.
With all the stresses of planning for the wedding, treating yourself to a relaxing massage
in the weeks leading up to the big day is always a nice way to relax and unwind, if only
for an hour. Hamilton, Burlington and Oakville salons and spas usually offer several
types of massage including hot stone, aromatherapy and more. Also, wellness clinics
and RMTs (Registered Massage Therapists) in the area can also provide a relaxing
Bridal Hair & Makeup
Many salons offer bridal packages including hair and
makeup for the bride and her bridesmaids. Typically a
consultation with a representative from the salon is required
to gather details and provide an estimate.
Most salons will open early for bridal parties and some
even provide extra touches like tea, coffee and juice to get
your morning started. Most Hamilton salons are very
accommodating, as long as there is advance notice of the
date. It’s best to book salons as early as possible,
particularly for summer weddings, which is traditionally a
busy time of year.
Get your nails done a day or two
before the wedding to save time
on the big day.
