How far in advance should I book my wedding date with Drop Dead Gorgeous?
It's never too early to book your wedding day with us. The sooner you book with us the more likely we are to have your date available! We generally book weddings 8-12 months in advanced.
When is final payment due?
Final payment is due one week before your wedding. The balance can be paid by cash, check, credit card, or Paypal. We find that receiving the final payment before the wedding party makes the wedding day go much smoother and you are able to sit back and relax and enjoy your wedding day!
How long would it take to do hair and makeup for myself and my bridesmaids?
It generally takes us 30 minutes to do makeup, and 30 minutes to do hair. It can sometimes take more time if someone has a lot of hair, or even less time.
How many people will be coming to do hair and makeup?
It depends on how many people we are getting ready. Generally for parties of 6 or less two people will come to do hair and makeup for your wedding. For larger parties we will have more people come to do hair and makeup.
Is there a minimum number of appointments required to book with you?
Yes, we require at least 4 people receiving hair and makeup services to book with us. We do offer a discounted price for brides with a bridal party of 6 or more.
Do you have any restrictions on what days you work?
Because having a work/life balance is extremely important to us, we do not schedule trial run appointments on weekends. We also may not work certain holidays (please inquire for more details if your wedding lands on a holiday) because enjoying our family, and spending time with them is extremely important to us! Thank you for understanding!
Where are you located and are you willing to travel?
Our studio is in Ferndale, Mi but consider all of Metro Detroit to be our "office" since we provide on-location services. We are happy to travel anywhere beyond metro Detroit as well if you should desire to have us be a part of your wedding day or event. For out of town bookings, be advised that in addition to our regular hair and makeup fees, you will be responsible for all accommodations including (but not limited to) airfare, hotel, and rental car.
Do you stay the entire day?
We offer the option to all of our brides to have us stay at your wedding for as long as you desire. The wonderful thing about having us stay for touch-ups or hair/makeup changes, is your photographer and your bridal party gets to just do their job. During photos we will be there to fix stray hairs, make sure your makeup is in place, and essentially act as a personal assistant for you so your photographer isn't wasting time in-between snapping photos to adjust anything. We also make sure you are aisle ready for your ceremony, and lookin' great right before you enter your reception. The amount of time that we stay is decided on between us, and is scheduled during booking at our hourly rate.
Do you have a studio where I can come to do my trial or day of hair and makeup?
Yes!! All of our trial runs are done at our studio in Ferndale, Mi. This is also great option for you and your bridal party on your wedding day. We have a bridal lounge with a table and chairs and a couch for you to relax, a coffee bar, a mini fridge (for champagne duh!), and of course a separate room for hair and makeup to take place. This is a much more affordable option than getting a hotel room for the day!
Are you able to accommodate last minute people for hair and makeup on the wedding day?
If time allows we will gladly do them as long as it does not interfere with clients who previously booked with us.
