My wedding flowers, make-up, hair…


When looking for a florist, hairdresser or make-up artist, you need to find vendors who you feel you can work with and will respect your wishes.

Ask friends and family for recommendations. Request portfolios of vendors' work, and discuss your requirements. Speak to the vendor and establish a rapport. If you are not happy with their suggestions or don’t like the vibes, go somewhere else.

Unlike reception venues, caterers and photographers, this kind of wedding vendor can work on several weddings in one day, but if you fall in love with the services offered by a particular vendor you are recommended to make a firm booking and put down a deposit, as the schedules of the most popular vendors will fill up fast.

Wedding florist

Look for a florist whose style ideas match yours: traditional, contemporary, funky, romantic… A surprisingly large amount of a wedding budget is spent on flowers and they really do set the scene for the whole event, so it is important to find the right vendor for your wishes.

Make an appointment to visit possible florists to ensure they can provide exactly what you want and to make sure that you like the florist’s style on the first meeting. If you have a particular flower in mind, make sure this florist can get hold of it, and at an acceptable price.

Wedding make-up artist

You may be happy doing your own make-up for everyday, but on your wedding day, treat yourself to the services of a professional makeup artist who specializes in wedding make-up, or have a make-up lesson with a professional if you want to do it yourself on the day.

Wedding make-up is very different to everyday, as it needs to last all day, needs to photograph well, and may need to bear up to a few tears being shed! Lipstick needs to be long-lasting to stand up to being kissed by your groom, to kissing your guests, and to eating and drinking at the reception.

Wedding hairstylist

If you do not have a regular hairdresser that you feel comfortable with, or if your hairdresser is not experienced in wedding hairstyles, you should find a hairdresser who is an expert in styling wedding hair and putting on hairpieces. You need to find someone who will create a look that brings out the best in you and complements your dress and accessories.

Speak to the person who would be styling your hair, and ask for their suggestions. If their ideas are similar to yours, you’ve got a winner! Visit the salon for a few regular styling appointments before the wedding to ensure you are on the same wavelength.
