What To Look For – Onsite Bridal Stylist

Join Wedding Wire and The Knot! These are the perfect websites to find any vendors, photos, and reviews from other brides. Spend some time going through these sites and you’re guaranteed to find options.

Once you find a stylist you like…

Check out their personal website and other social media. Instagram is a great resource in seeing what kind of styles they create. Instagram is a portfolio of a stylist’s best work – you want to find looks that you can imagine on yourself for your big day.

Reach out as soon as you can because most stylists book out 1 year in advance.

Upon inquiring, give as much information as possible. For example…

  • What is the date of your wedding?
  • How many people need services?
  • Location?
  • First Look?
  • Ceremony Time?

If you don’t know the answers to some of these questions, don’t worry – most stylists will be flexible in acquiring the information and can help guide you.

Always make sure a contract is involved. This protects you and the stylist – this way, they can’t back out with no reason or change pricing or any details without your discretion. While on the topic of a contract, be sure to discuss price with your stylist. Depending on how long your stylist has been in the industry, pricing will vary. Higher end looks may come with a higher price tags.
