Budget Savvy Beauty Tips for the Wedding Recessionista...


As the big day nears closer, brides begin to focus on their hair, make-up and beauty needs. After shelling out a small fortune for the dress, reception, band and incidentals...the drama begins!! Who really wants to cut the cost on beauty for their Wedding?? Would you dare do your own hair at home with the help of your bridesmaids or skip the nail salon for an au nautural look....Many would scream NO! while others may be quite comfortable taking those routes in order to save some money.

Here's a few tips we've compiled to keep you looking your best while staying within you budget...


  • Hair - While it's always nice to have your hair styled from the comforts of home on the big day, be warned..... it will cost you! Stylist normally charge by the hour and incorporate traveling fees and misc. charges. Be wise and do a little planning and schedule a salon visit early that morning to avoid the crowds. Give yourself at least a 3-4 hour window to return home and get dressed.

  • Make-Up - Stop by your favorite make-up counter a few weeks before your wedding and have an artist try some looks on you. Find an artist that your comfortable with and ask if he/she'd be interested in free-lancing for your wedding. Most make-up artist at counters jump at the chance to make some extra money and add to their resume. Their fees may be much lower than a professional freelancer and you may be able to work out a deal for the entire bridal party.
