Vendor Booking Timeline

Choosing your vendors for your big day can be a daunting task.  There are so many things on your check list when first starting out, it’s hard to know where to begin.  We are loving this timeline that Wedding Wire has come out with to help manage when different vendors should be found and booked. WW X2-VendorBookingTimeline-2017_x2_v03

When it comes to hair and makeup, the earlier the better. Thus, why we love this time line.  Twelve months or more gives you time to not only find the hair and makeup artists that fit your style and needs perfectly, but allows you to get in for a trial very early on so you can check off your list what you want your look to be for your big day!

We here at Makeup for Your Day, love traveling world wide to get brides ready.  We’ve seen some pretty spectacular venues out there and look forward to seeing more breathtaking places for gorgeous ceremonies and receptions.  For you newly engaged couples out there, be sure and check out this list to explore beautiful wedding venues in the Raleigh area as well as all over the world!copy-of-mikkelpaige-merrimon_wynne_house-makeup_for_your_day_0009

Let us know what your traveling must-haves are!

For the skin we love The Duwop Flight stick.

This sheer coverage balm is in a universally flattering shade and has a touch of caffeine to wake skin up while also containing ingredients to combat dryness while protection and hydrating with antioxidants. 
For the hair we love Alterna’s Bamboo Cleanse Extend Translucent Dry Shampoo.

This sheer dry shampoo gives volume to freshly cleansed hair or a little more texture to “second day” old hair.  We also love the way it smells.

Let us know what your purse must-haves are!

We love YSL’s Touche Eclat and MAC’s Blot Powder for highlighting, concealing, refreshing makeup and touch ups throughout the day.


Let us know what your daily must-haves are!
We love Laura Mercier’s Radiance Primer.  This primer has a soft focus effect that minimizes imperfections and keeps makeup fresh and color-true.
